Tint Your Eyes with Armani This Fall!

The eyes are the window to the soul. Whether they’re smokey, natural or winged, your eyes say a lot about you before you even speak. Most days, I like to bust out a quick wing to add a little flair and quick glimpse into my glittering soul. Sometimes, though, I love to go all out with eyeshadow to boost my creativity and express my style. I usually just pick up the eyeshadow palette pick of the day and get to blending but Influenster has given me a new way to play up my eyes–with liquid.

Liquid eyeshadows aren’t new to the makeup world but they haven’t become a huge hit just yet. It seems that this will change very soon as we’re starting to see more liquid eyeshadow formulas from brands like Maybelline and now Giorgio Armani. The Giorgio Armani Eye Tints are a new collection of liquid eyeshadows in neutral shades ranging from beige to green in shimmer and matte finishes. Armani describes the formula as a long lasting tint with the smoothness of a cream that yields intense, vibrant eye looks. The Eye Tints have a very thin, lightweight formula that’s creamy but not too emollient so it doesn’t slide around much at all. Instead, it seems to offer a precise application that’s easy to blend with a pat of a finger or a synthetic brush.

January was a very long month for me but boy was it packed with a lot fun and new makeup! I did quite a lot of shopping over the holiday season so I had a ton of new goodies to play and fall in love with that made last month extra exciting and fun. From new skincare goodies to makeup palettes galore, I dabbled in a little of everything and ended up discovering some pretty cool products that I just couldn’t do without in January.

Armani 201 Leather & 602 Vertigo Ecstasy Lacquer Review

Armani 602 Vertigo, 201 Leather Ecstasy Lacquer

When it comes to high end makeup, you don’t always get what you pay for. In some cases, you’re shelling out extra bucks just for the fancy packaging and brand name. When I came across the new Armani Ecstasy Lacquers at Nordstrom for $40 a pop I started to wonder if the price was highway robbery just because they were Armani or if they were actually really good.

Spoiler alert: They’re really good!

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer Haul & Swatches

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer 201Leather, 602 Vertigo

I may hate the inevitable waiting game that comes with online shopping but browsing in person can be way too dangerous. I quickly go from checking for swatches and reviews first to just impulsively buying what’s in front of me. That’s exactly what happened to me when I peeked into Nordstrom to see if they had anything good. Of course they did! When does Nordstrom ever not have good stuff?

It’s no secret I love makeup and all things beauty. It’s just who I am! But the biggest reason behind Fancieland was to be a reference for women who looked like me. There are millions of beauty bloggers all over the world but there are so little who really understand the needs of women of color. Especially those of us with a little bit more pigment. It’s like we get overlooked in the beauty world. Not anymore! When I first started wearing makeup I struggled picking out foundations so I hope my foundation collection will help ladies like me find that perfect shade.
