Giorgio Armani Écailles Luxury Edition Eye Palette

Jun 1, 2012

There are no words to describe how stunning is this new piece from the Giorgio Armani Écailles Makeup Collection for summer 2012.

The Écailles Luxury Edition Eye Palette is a piece of art. A pure delight for the eyes. A grandiose ode to the ocean.

The beautiful black lacquered compact ornamented with handcrafted black mother-of-pearl is presented in a black velvet pouch ($95CAD). The package holds four harmonious sea-inspired shades, deep sea blue, algae, lagoon turquoise and shimmering crest-of-a-wave white to create a smokey eye with a nautical twist. With glamorous pearly shades, the Eye Palette is elegantly reminiscent of the scales (or écailles in French) on the tail of a mermaid.


The Écailles Makeup Collection is "inspired by the play of moonlight on the ocean, by myriad shades from inky depths, by whites and black pearls", as mentioned by Linda Cantello, International Make Up Artist for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics.

The limited-edition luxury item is the prettiest thing I have seen in cosmetics in ages. Even though the eye-shadows have the most sumptuous texture and their color reminds me of the Mediterranean Sea, I think I will leave it on my vanity simply to enhance the scenery.

The Giorgio Armani Écailles makeup collection is now available at Giorgio Armani Cosmetics Counters and at Holt Renfrew.
