To be brutally honest, I don’t think I have the best bits from the Giorgio Armani Eclipse Collection to show you – the pieces I have seem a little bit disjointed and not representative enough of the collection. I do always, always, with Giorgio Armani highlighters (above, the Eclipse Palette) wonder how they can justify £60. Although the Eclipse Palette is a mix of champagne and an ivory nude, they use the word ‘bronze’ with this and I cannot see why. If you love skin luminosity, it’s soft as anything and really does give skin a sheen, but I’m not convinced it looks like a £60 glow!
I’m on happier ground with the Eyes To Kill Liners (£26.50) – shown here in Minuit (blue) and Sunset. They’re light reflective, deep on pigment and dramatic, but I find them incredibly hard to use – they have a long wand with a tiny, very flexible brush on the end so a steady hand is required. I’d say if you’re not already good with liquid liners, don’t start here – if you are, then these will rock your world with their near-lacquer finish!
There are two other shades including a golden yellow colour, as well as three new eye tints, also golden, blue and purple.
Also within the Giorgio Armani Eclipse Collection are three new Nail Laquers (£20) – shown above in Rouge Eclipse with a subtle multi-dimensional finish. And, er, that’s it. I genuinely don’t think this is a good reflection of the look which is absolutely stunning and dramatic, but sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got. I’d strongly advise trying to see it on counter or at Armanibeauty.co.uk where it looks more joined up and complete.

The highlighter shade looks lovely but i have to admit i am not very drawn into these products as they don’t stand out compared to other brands x

The highlighter does look lovely and the sort of colour I would go for but agree at £60 it is super expensive x
Giorgio did it again. Continentally and in the US the collection is much bigger ( three new LE eye tints). It’s one of my favorite make up brands but unfortunately I find their SAs not being up to date with products and collections. On top of that each country has a completely different launch date. Eclipse was available in Germany over a month ago. There two new fall collections on the way (regular and Runway). I really hope they will somehow work it out and be more consistent with dates, product availibility etc.
The nail polish looks remarkably like a ltd edition one No7 did a couple of years back!
I haven’t tried much at all from Giorgio Armani to be honest. Do you think the price matches the quality?

I think it is one of few brands where the prices are (to some extent) justified. It’s not a ‘trendy’ brand, it’s more elegant, sublime and definately not to everyone’s taste.
