armani runway fall winter 16

Two of three items from the Giorgio Armani Runway Fall/Winter ’16 Limited Edition Collection

I have a theory that we’re going to lose our command of the English language someday because it’ll be completely replaced by the use of emojis, and when that day comes, if I’m still kickin’ and startin’ sh*t and bustin’ moves at the grown folks club, this is how I’d convey this review of the Giorgio Armani Beauty Runway Fall/Winter ’16 Limited Edition Collection:

😍💸💸😲💸💸😠💸💸😂💸💸

Dude, this palette? It’s one hundred and twenty bones.

$120!

No, seriously.

OK, now, I’m down to make it rain sometimes (says the girl who just put the $80 Hourglass Surreal Light palette into her Sephora cart 🙈🙉🙊), but $120 for a compact with a transparent face powder and three eyeshadows??

That’s like an alternate universe-type price where diamond-studded grills are a valid form of retirement savings.

Have I mentioned that it’s $120?

Granted, for that price you don’t just get a compact. You get an experience, because Armani wrapped the top of the compact with silk muslin, upon which is a print straight off an Armani runway.

And the satiny, mauve-ish, grayish beige; matte black and sparkling champagne eyeshadows, as well as the translucent face powder, feel almost like creamy pillows…

Good stuff, but it’s hella pricey. Probably made with ladies who lunch and also happen to love Armani Beauty in mind.

Armani Runway Fall/Winter ‘16 Limited Edition Eye Tint ($40)

The Face & Eye Palette is joined by a $40 Eye Tint cream eyeshadow — a gorgeous khaki with a glossy finish and medium-sized bits of platinum glitter.

I like it because it’s sparkly and looks sooo luxurious on lids…

And then there’s a $40 mauve-ish beige Rouge d’Armani Lipstick, which I’ve yet to see in person, but all three pieces are limited edition and available now at Armani counters and online.
