So it begins. Giorgio Armani Easy Chic Fall 2012 collection comes out this month at Holt Renfrew, and this is an incredible little collection that you don’t want to miss out on. This is one brand that continues to impress me, and I hope you’ll see why. Read on to see a few stunning items from the collection.
Rouge d’Armani in 408 Rosewood Red and Neo Classic Face & Eye Palette in Neo Black
The Neo Classic Face & Eye Palette in Neo Black ($95) contains two tiers of powders: a browned peach blush, and a trio of eyeshadows in shimmery champagne, gold-flecked khaki taupe, and a matte black.

The eyeshadows are a new formula; very different from the previous eyeshadow palettes from Giorgio Armani. They have much better pigmentation and glide, and don’t have any fallout issues. Don’t let the black eyeshadow swatch fool you. The shade is deep and smooth on the eyes. The face powder is sheer and has the most beautiful glow. Like the eyeshadows, it applies smoothly. It barely shows up on my skin tone (beautiful on fair skin like Beautezine, though), so it is perfect to balance a smokey eye. There is also a Neo Brown palette available; it is also gorgeous, as seen on Makeup Magpie.

Rouge d’Armani in 408 Rosewood Red
Limited edition shades of my favourite lipstick formula evarrr make me nervous. Rouge d’Armani in 408 Rosewood Red ($38) is a deep blue red that has autumn written all over it. From my previous review: 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. Also available in 526 Purpleheart (plum) and 111 Vintage Pine (beige).
A beauty PSA: not pictured, but do not miss the Waterproof Eye Pencil in 1 Granite Black ($29). I bought mine from the Spring 2011 collection and it is my favourite black eyeliner pencil. Very waterproof, very black, and I can wear it on my waterline for a long time. You need it. It is also available in 2 Earthen Brown.
