Giorgio Armani Color Sketcher Swatches
I have seven of the ten shades to show you here.
1 Sepia, 2 Amaretto, 3 Scarlatto, 5 Taupe, 6 Nuda, 7 Dragee, 9 Auburn:
The texture is lovely. Each shades melts into the lips and skin. The shape of the pencil is great for lining and filling the lips. Held on the side, it shades colour on to the cheeks effortlessly and the formula blends out beautifully. I love the size of the pencils. They are super easy to pop into a makeup bag and the twist up delivery system makes them really easy to use.
I love the shade range and I think they all work on a whole range of skin tones. In the selection of colours I have, there isn’t really one I wouldn’t want to use. This is such a wearable collection.
I have had a good play and I really love the formula and how it looks on lips and skin. The satin-sheen gives a gorgeous, juicy finish that’s really flattering and youthful.
Make sure you’re following me on Instagram to see these in action soon. I am going show you some swatches and a demo on the lips and cheeks. The slimness of the pencils makes it all feel very arty!
What I really want to do is try them on the eye lids too, because I love a sheeny lid and am currently obsessing over a really harmonius makeup look.
