Did I make you wait long enough? Have a look at some swatches at items from Giorgio Armani Jacquard Collection. Close up photos of the products can be found here.
Blushing Fabric in 6, Quatuor Eye Palette in 1, Rouge d’Armani in 406
Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in 6 ($70) is a warm brown cream-to-powder blush. This blush has a very slippery feel and is a dream to blend into the skin. This particular colour is incredibly pigmented; the blended swatch below has 1/3 the amount of the concentrated swatch on the left. It lasts all day on the cheeks. Those with cool skin tones may have a hard time pulling off a shade like this, but warmer skin tones will wear it beautifully for a natural bronze-y blush.

Giorgio Armani Jacquard Quatuor Eye Palette in 1 ($45) includes a light olive, a cool sea green, a forest green, and a deep purple. The three lighter shades are shimmery, while the purple is matte. They are very pigmented even when swatched dry, but they are definitely more vibrant when applied wet. All the colours are universally flattering and are well coordinated.

Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in 406 ($38) is a rich pink-y red with a beautiful sheen to it. I think it might even have silver shimmer laced in it. The formula is absolutely phenomenal. It is super creamy, saturated and melts on to the lips without any dragging. I recommend a liner to keep it from slipping around on the lips too much. Love love love this!
