Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara Review


They tell me the eyes have it. Armani obviously knows it as they introduced a brand new mascara entitled Eyes to Kill. Dude, doesn’t that so sound like a James Bond movie? This calls for corny theme music!


Keep it playing as you read the review it’ll really set the mood!

With all the bells and whistles in the mascara world lately one would think Giorgio Armani Beauty would decide to jump on board and create some crazy applicator. You know what I mean. Plastic applicators, brushless ones, slim line applicators, crazy medieval spiked ones….truly mascara has evolved since our mother’s started using it at our ages.

Armani though, they see the potential in the standard brush. There isn’t anything special about the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara applicator aside from the fact that it’s longer and fuller than many brushes. Aside from this the bells and whistles are left at the door. But don’t let that sway you because this mascara is incredible. Be it the formula or the brush one would have to guess at what made my lashes so full and so very, very long. Amazing!

Eyes to Kill Mascara is available in four shades which are the standard blacks, browns, and gray but they also have one entitled Rouge Iron which appears to be a pinkish red shade, very interesting choice for a mascara. I tried out Steel Black which is true inky black. The formula is very light and airy which creates a natural, softer lash look that still manages to be dramatic due to the incredible volume the formula gives lashes. It doesn’t clump up during application and glides on the lashes easily without creating a havoc of messy lashes in it’s wake.


As mentioned above the applicator is a simple brush that’s a fair bit longer than your average size but nothing too dramatic. The brush pulls lashes up and out while curling them and offering up supreme length and fullness.


Overall, count this Muse impressed with the new Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara. Lashes like these don’t come cheap at $28 for a tube but you’ll be incredibly happy when you’re prancing around with crazy long lashes to go along with your smoky Fall eye look!



Overall, I’m quite excited and impressed with this mascara. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten so hyped over a US brand mascara (as you know I’m all over Japanese mascara). Truly a fantastic one and worthy of a try, the Muse thinks you’ll love it!

Excellent mascara and deserving of a Muse Approval!

Loves it!

Light, Flawless Summer Foundation: Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Review

Have I told you lately how much I hate silicon? Ugh! The primer world is taken over with silicon bases and now suddenly foundations are popping up left and right with a silicon base. No please, no! I truly hate silicon in my face products. It feels terrible on my face and on a rare occasion I’ve been to known to break out because of it.


That’s why I was ever so shocked when I got my hands on Giorgio Armani Face Fabric a few months ago and fell in love!

With it’s base of silicon I was sure I’d hate the feel of Giorgio Armani Face Fabric but turns out I love it, especially now that the weather is warmer!


If you like your foundation extremely light, subtle, sheer, and flawless you should indulge in a tube of this. The foundation is a unique silicone based formula that’s neither oily, sticky, or uncomfortable to wear. I normally feel like I’m wearing a mask when I indulge in silicon based primers or foundations but this gives my skin plenty of breathing room with very light coverage.

The product is ideal for mattifying as I can get good continuous wear out of it for about 7 hours without having to blot or reapply. The finish is dewy and evens out skin tone creating a brilliant canvas for makeup. It is advertised as a “tint” so it can’t be called a foundation however it feels like a cross between a primer, foundation, and a tinted moisturizer all in one to me.


I’d recommend this if you like lighter coverage in the warmer weather. It’s particularly fantastic at holding in for longer periods at a time where as many tinted moisturizers and foundations melt away quickly in warmer weather. It looks so natural and pretty on that it’s perfect for a natural, fresher makeup look. The product contains an SPF of 12 so you’ll want to add a bit of your own sunblock for extra protection.

All in all Giorgio Armani Face Fabric is one of my must have makeup items for the Summer. Muse Approved for purchased for sure!

Who might like it?

  • Anyone who wants a lighter foundation product for Summer.
  • Those who want a long wearing tint that evens out skin tone and creates a fresh, natural finish.
  • Anyone who likes their makeup simple and fresh.

Anyone a lover?

The Muse isn’t known for getting too excited about bronzey collections. The paler her skin stays the better! However, she does so admit to rolling around in fits of excitement when she seen the Giorgio Armani Bronze Mania Collection!


Mania indeed! The Muse can enjoy this type of mania.


A fitting combination of cool ocean blues paired with beautiful tanned skin awaits you with the brand new, limited edition Giorgio Armani Mediterranean Eyeshadow Palette. Four shades of shimmering shadows plus Giorgio Armani most popular bronzer shade make up this incredible Summer palette. Loves it!


Giorgio Armani Sienna Minerals Bronzing Palette already knows it’s gorgeous but the Muse deems it necessary to remind it how pretty it is, “darling, you’re stunning!” (it’s been known to reply…”yes, I know!”) Swirls of sienna red and sandy copper make up an all over blush for a golden bronze glow! The Muse thinks it’s incredible and thinks she might needs it!


Giorgio Armani Bronze Mania Body Tints Bronzer is a weightless, pigment-free formula for a universal natural bronze shade leaves your skin with the kiss of the sun! I can’t get on board with a gel bronzer but sounds like something that could be interesting.


Finish your Summer look with Giorgio Armani Sparkling Bronze Mascara Topcoat. The topcoat leaves lashes with luminous sparkling bronze. Pretties we like sparkle don’t we?

Overall, the collection looks stunning. These are the days the Muse wishes she was a millionaire so she can buy two of everything for now she’s definitely leaning towards the Giorgio Armani Sienna Minerals Bronzing Palette! It looks incredibly pretty. Must haves, like now!
