Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 Kaleidoscope Collection Swatches

Giorgio Armani Fall 2013  DisplayGiorgio Armani’s Fall 2013 Kaleidoscope Collection has recently pre-launched here in Hong Kong (at Chater House), and here are the swatches!

The lightings at the store aren’t too great for photos, so I took as many as I could.

For the Face & Eye Palettes, there are #1 Mystic Blue and #2 Venomous Green.Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 Face & Eye Palette Display (1)Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 Face & Eye Palette DisplayThe Face & Eye Palettes are breathtakingly gorgeous. It’s truly love at first sight. The first tier of both palettes is a blush, and they’re very shimmery on the pan before used. But once the shimmery overspray is gone, it’s much more subtle. The pinkish coral from #1 Mystic Blue is my favourite.Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 #1 Mystic Blue Face & Eye Palette Face DisplayThe eyeshadows are beautiful, with a middle shade that transforms into another color after the overspray was removed. For #1 Mystic Blues, it transformed to a mysterious turquoise color.
Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 #1 Mystic Blue Face & Eye Palette Eye DisplayI love this palette and that’s why I chose this between the two. The blush leaves a slight shimmery sheen, it’s not overwhelming at all once the overspray is removed. The shadows are of excellent quality, with the darkest color, which is a deep plum just slightly drying.

It’s lighter than the one from #1 Mystic Blue, and will be better suited for fairer skin.Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 #2 Venomous Green Face & Eye Palette Face DisplayThe shadows from #2 Venomous Green are beautiful, but to me are not as interesting or beautiful as the ones from Mystic Blues. The hidden color in the middle shade is a forest green which I am very tempted to own.Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 #2 Venomous Green Face & Eye Palette Eye Display (1)The swatches here looked washed out under the lighting at the Giorgio Armani Beauty boutique, in reality, they are more intense. Nonetheless, the blush is a little too light for my taste even though I have a fairer skin tone than most people in Hong Kong. I suspect that it would take a few layers before it would show up nicely on my complexion. It gives a very pretty subtle sheen though.

The eyeshadows are of better quality than Mystic Blue, but once again, in my opinion, the colors are not as interesting.

Just look at the shades and you’ll know that these are must-haves!

I love 30, 33 and 34 the most, and that’s why they’re my picks. At different angles these show up differently in terms of colors, almost like duo chromes.

These are 6 new shades of Rouge d’Armani lipsticks 300, 409, 410, 610, 611 and 612. They’re glossy, moisturizing and pigmented. I gasped when I swatched 410, which is my favorite out of the 6. Too bad I don’t wear really red lipsticks, or else I don’t think I’d be able to put this down.Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 Rouge d'armaniIf you’re interested in getting any of these items before August, you can head to Giorgio Armani Beauty boutique in Chater House. Otherwise, you’ll be able to find these at all Giorgio Armani counters in August.

  1. I love love love this collection! Yesterday I went there to try the lipsticks on. I fell in love with 300, I am definitely getting it :-) I was also smitten by 410 on my lips. It looked like a red which would flatter many skin tones. I was also sighing like you, wishing I would be wearing reds, but I just don’t do it so often and I have so many reds at home. Anyway 610 might be close to Tom Ford Black Orchid, it was “that” pigmented.
