This innovative hybrid texture, which is not a powder, nor a cream acts like a smooth, lasting color film. Each shade is intensified with a second pigment for a multi-dimensional effect. In just one swoop, create a wet, shimmering smokey eye. Base color covers eyelid, and second pigment adds drama to the contour.
Giorgio Armani’s famous Eyes To Kill Eye Shadows are hybrid-textured eye shadows that come in a variety of color collections. This review is for the Intense Eye Shadow in shade #11 White Punch–which is a frosty, soft silver.
The Eyes To Kill eyeshadows come in glass jars with reflective, black, twist-off caps. Inside is a plastic stopper that keeps the eye shadow in place.
#11 White Punch, in the pan, is a mix of dusty-pink-toned nude and frosty white. Once you apply White Punch onto the lids, it’s a frosty, slightly muted silver shade. I personally wish this shade had a more nude or pink tone to it, but… it doesn’t.
This eye shadow has a very unique texture to it. It has a somewhat crumbly texture while still having humidity to it. It’s a mix between a powder and cream texture.
The shadow gives you a smooth layer of shimmering white-silver on the lids (when you apply it correctly). The pigmentation is strong.
I can wear this shade, over primer, for about 8 hours without seeing noticeable creasing.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
This shade is best applied with the fingers, because it heats and smooths out the product so that it applies in an even manner. If you use a brush, the formula can get clumpy and uneven.
You can also apply this eye shadow both dry and with a damp brush/finger, but I found that it didn’t change the finish or intensity of the color.
For $34.00, you get 0.14 ounces of shadow. Compared to Dior’s Diorshow Fusion Mono Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadows and Lancome’s Color Design Infinité, you’re paying much more for these shadows per ounce.
