Giorgio Armani Summer 2011


I can’t tell if I am actually attracted to this collection of makeup, or if it’s just the pretty face of Megan Fox beckoning me to take a peak. Maybe both. But either way I can’t deny that there is a tiny piece of me that wonders if I too could look that beautiful if I rocked this Summer 2011 collection.

“Copper and bronze hues warm skin, creating a sculpted glow with shimmering, honey highlights.” I find myself entirely seduced by the description of this bronzer collection. There are three eye catching shades:  Brown Sand, Mauve, and Golden Sand. This is good for all skin types, has a mirco fine texture, and is good for building on.

I am really loving the colors that are paired together in the Heat Palette quad.  Giorgio seems to have kept to that “natural summer-time beauty” tradition, all while giving us the option of a smoked out eye. You can be as innocent and natural as you want using shades like White Gold Sand, and Desert Earth. Or perhaps dive into your more mysterious side with the Burnt Amber and Desert Earth.

I always love a good cream blush as it tends to give a more natural and dewy complexion to the skin. Giorgio’s blushing fabric second skin blush comes in two shades: Sienna #4 for a more natural look, and Raspberry #5 for more definition. They are both water soluble pigments, which allows for perfect blending, creating a “like skin” texture. Who wouldn’t want that?

I love the Sheer Lipsticks from Giorgio, they are non drying, and I can build the color if I want. So here are four Limited Edition colors to check out if you are in search of a lovely and non drying lipstick.

“Infuse a bold note of color with the star color powered Sienna Red Brick #34. Add playful vibrancy with Burnt Coral #35.For the perfect feminine pout, choose the sophisticated Sunset Pink #36. Or opt for Megan Fox’s soft seductive lips with Sand Dune Beige #37, featured in the Summer ‘Heat’ look.” Ummm, yes please.

Overall Thoughts

I am always skeptical when designers and makeup collections collide. Am I purchasing this just for the name? Etc. But I have purchased a few items from Giorgio and have been given a few as well. I am always pleased that the quality matches adequately. Would I purchase this on the regular? No, it’s not a “go to” line for me.
