Giorgio Armani Jacquard Woven Eye Color Palette in 1 Review, Swatch and FOTD

July 30, 2011

I wore my latest purchase – the Giorgio Armani Jacquard Woven Eye Color Palette in 1 today! It is lovely – the shades are not what I would usually go for in a daytime look. To my pleasant surprise, I was able to pull them off without looking too heavy.


This whole palette feels very luxurious to use (of course it comes with a high price tag). The couture inspired jacquard pattern design is aesthetically pleasant, and this pattern is firmly embossed so it doesn’t come off after a few uses, unlike some other brands. All shades are moderately pigmented for a refined and sophisticated finish with a a creamy and silky smooth texture, in line with the classy Giorgio Armani’s signature looks.


Shades Description (from lightest to the darkest):

– dove-grey with an icy green sheen in a sparkly luminous finish.

– shimmery minty green in a sparkly luminous finish

– army green with fine shimmer

– eggplant in a matte finish


Upper: I applied a very sheer wash of the army green all over my socket to create some depth, then I smudged the eggplant shade along the lash line and the outer v. I then dabbed some dove-grey on the inner corner.

Lower: Minty green along the lash line then I filled the outer corner with the eggplant shade.

On a side note: I just bought a macro lens after so long! These close up shots were taken by the macro lens and I am really happy with the result 🙂

Absolutely gorgeous. I love creamy and silky smooth textured eyeshadows. And you made that palette really wearable for daytime too.


Reika August 1, 2011 at 11:27 am

I really like to apply the dark shades sheerily for a daytime look during the fall 🙂

Pretty! Very Pretty. Can´t wait to buy these shades. Love the Armani eyeshadows. At the moment the LE Summer Palette is my favorite and I love all of the Eyes to Kill Intense shadows.


Reika August 1, 2011 at 11:29 am

The LE summer palette is gorgeous, but I passed it up because it looks too similar to my Chanel Spice Quad. Love the ETK as well!

You look so elegant 🙂 Absolutely beautiful and I especially love the two toned lips 🙂


Reika August 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

Thanks! mm..I didn’t know I had two toned lips…maybe it’s because I didn’t distribute the color evenly haha..

Hi Stephanie glad you liked it 🙂 GA products are to die for..I love every single products that I own from GA, the downside is the price tag, we all know that right?!
