FOTD: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #3 Purpura

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 3 - 2011

I had a few requests to see how the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #3 Purpura looked when worn, so I applied it as an all-over wash yesterday and snapped some photos.

I love it because it’s such an easy-to-wear shade, it applies and blends excellently with just my finger, is dark enough to give some great definition and a hint of smokiness yet light enough to be suitable for Summer.  Having said that, longevity (on me) isn’t all that much better than the L’oreal clones I tried a couple of months ago.  It doesn’t disappear from my lids completely but after around 4hrs, 70% of it resides in my socket line.  Still, it’s beautiful while it lasts… I’ll definitely pair it with a primer next time.

please excuse the pores!

      I was JUST thinking the same thing too! Amazingly clear skin and it has a nice subtle radiance to it!! Also I love this color. A primer could definitely be the trick to give it a little staying power but perhaps a similar e/s color used to set the cream e/s will definitely guarantee more longevity! 70% fade is quite high!!!!

    I love how this looks! We don’t get GA here unfortunately. They pulled out a year or two ago :( But damn! I want one now :P

    I love this colour!! I wish my counter already had it, although the price increase in CAD is exorbitant :P I just want to swatch! These last at least 12 hrs on me with or without a primer – must be different body chemistry! The L’oreal ones just came out here and I’m finding I like the complex metallic finish of these more. I might just be trying to justify their cost in my head though :P

    I love the colour too but frankly for that money I want a longer lasting formulation (I think I am getting meaner as I get older)

    It certainly is pretty but the longevity doesn’t impress. Lovely fresh look you got going there.

  12. It’s a very pretty summer color, and I love your fresh and natural look. BTW, you have perfect eyebrows.

    Strange it didn’t stay long on you, Temptalia gave this 10/10 for longevity. Not sure I want to fork out all that money on it now however pretty it is. :(

      Well, the counter in Bentalls has a tester, but none in stock, apparently they never received any?! I did love it though and have been put on the waiting list to be called if and when they have some in stock.

    Hooray! Thanks for sharing a FOTD, lovely :)

    It’s too bad to hear that they don’t wear all that well on their own, but the shade does look just as delicious on your lids as it did on the back of your hand. I have to admit… my logical half thinks I’m being a dork about Purpura, but I’m still tempted!

    As gorgeous as this looks, with that kind of performance I’ll stick with my rimmel 8hr mousse. Coincidentally, St. Isidore of Seville mistranslated purpura as ‘purity of light’, much nicer than ‘bruise’ eh?!

    I bought #9 Champagne this weekend and it wore on my all day (8am – 9pm) and looked just as perfect when I took it off as when I put it on. My lids aren’t particularly oily, though. With a primer, I’d venture to say that it would last for days. That might be a fun experiment!

    I recommend this color for everyone. It’s an absolutely beautiful neutral light peachy-pink. I’m not cool-toned, but it brightened up my eyes and looked amazing. It would probably “kill” on you, Charlotte!
