Inspired by Mr. Armani’s love of light and its effect on color, this spring season, gold takes center stage.
Soft pastels are instantly updated with a hint of antique gold, in a myriad of ways.
“Luce d’oro” , a precious new pigment is added to eyeshadows. Cheeks are soft glowing pink. Lips are sheer and glossy. Muted shades of pink accented by coco and greige add a chic contrast.
Eye Palette (SRP $59)
The new secret of radiance, the precious “Luce d’oro” pigment gives a special luminosity to the eye.
Two are the must-have products for the season: a palette that combines soft pastels with the luster of antique gold and one that presents a harmony of gold and copper accented with a moonlight silver.
Tourmaline Pink Blush (SRP $55)
A subtle blush softer than the classic formulas where white, beige and pink replace the classic white powders.
Micronized to the extreme, this blush leaves a translucent glow that illuminates every complexion.
Eye Pencils (SRP $27)
Pure wave of light in an exquisite texture.
Offered in two versions, antique gold and copper, this exceptional pencil brightens eyes with metallic definition. Remarkably soft and creamy upon application, the formula is as precise as a kohl, as intense as an eyeliner. It creates a long-lasting, water-resistant outline which stays intense for hours.
Gloss d’Armani (SRP $28)
Thanks to the exclusive Color-Fil Shine technology, Gloss d’Armani has the ability to form a supple mesh that traps pigments and pearlescent particles.
A supple, silky weave of shine, Gloss d’Armani stays radiant for over eight hours.
Four unique colors: “Greige d’Armani”, “Caffeine”, “Wild rose” and “Blush”.
“Luce” by Linda Cantello
“Apply your color of choice swept over the eye lid. Then use one of the pencils to highlight the inner corners of the eye. A new way of applying shadow. Sweep of luminous color up through the temples and over the lip’s cupid’s bow takes us straight through to Spring 2012 as seen on Giorgio Armani runway.” Linda Cantello
The Spring 2012 collection will be available in February online at www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com and at Armani Fifth Avenue and select fine department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Barneys.
