I visited the Chanel counter recently and experimented with the new Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows, and found some of the colors to be truly beautiful, however slightly glittery. This reminded me that the The Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eye Shadows are among the best I have ever tried! Both are long wearing formulas, however I feel their similarities end here. The cream-powder hybrid texture of the Armani shadows, compared to Chanel's creamier jelly like consistency, make them easy to apply, with no fall out. Best of all, these shadows live up to the hype and truly last all day with no fading, creasing or smudging. The color remains rich and true. The latest addition to my collection is number 4, Pulp Fiction.
Pulp Fiction is a lovely silvery grey with blue, pink and white microshimmers. Perfect for a night out!
Have you taken the plunge yet and purchased any of the Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Shadows? Do you prefer the new Chanel shadows?
