Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint
This brand always goes quiet for a while before rushing in with something amazing! Their newest launch is Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint – a water-based eye tint that goes onto the lid wet but dries in a flash. You do need to be careful with application if all you’re after is a wash of colour – a lot comes out on the doe’s foot applicator so if you’re buying one of the darker colours, go very lightly.
I put the lightest shade, Flannel, to a full day test – initially it was fabulous; very eye brightening and opening, but didn’t truly stay the course of the day. It’s one of the few times that I haven’t used a primer underneath an eye product, proving possibly that my lids are oilier than I think. My advice with Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint would be to use a primer.
As you can see, the colours are spectacular – some of the shades (Flannel, Jade) are multi-dimensional, although this shows more in the tube than on the eye. In the swatch above, shades are: Flannel, Obsidian, Emeraude, Minuit, Jade, Onyx, Green Iron and Shadow, although there are a few more pale shades that I don’t have here. Realistically, you need a good skill level to work with the darker shades on a ‘wash’ basis, which makes me advise that the lighter colours are more useful, particularly on older skin, where the eyelid could do with some enlivening.
Either way, Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint are flexible – go deep and dark or more sheer. My picks from the range are Flannel as a great eye base to layer other shades over or just a lighter, brightening eye look, and Jade that does a dreamy sheeny thing with plenty of glimmer. The Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint dries super-quickly so if you like to smudge, you literally have seconds! They’ve all got glimmer to a greater or lesser degree – I had a go at Minuit, the deep navy/black shade – it gave a beautiful, smooth and lightly glinting finish.
Giorgio Armani Fluid Eye Tint launches on the 25th for an eye-watering £26.50 each.
