Giorgio Armani Jacquard Face Palette Look and My Thoughts on the Palette


Christmas is almost here! As I'm getting ready to go out, I found all three of the Armani Jacquard Palettes that I had purchased a while back. I had put these in a bag and some how they got lost in the black hole that I call my makeup closet.

Color description is from left to right:
A shimmery Ivory.

A shimmery pale golden tan.

A shimmery pale sandy taupe/beige.

A shimmery and wonderfully pigmented Deep redden raspberry.

I'm meeting up with some friends for a casual dinner at my favorite Indian restaurant ( I used to go there three times a week), so I decided to used the Face Palette to create tonight's look. I used the Giorgio Armani Jacquard Face Palette for my eye shadow, blush and highlight.   


In the photo above, I swirled all four shades together, concentrating a bit more on the blush shade and lightly applied it on my cheeks.


Since I love that " I just got slapped in the face look" I intensified the blush :) 


 I used the sandy taupe/beige shade all over my lids and the pale golden tan in the crease.

I'm wearing Dueba Sassy contacts in brown...but for some reason they look grey.

The Texture and pigmentation of this palette is amazing and I love the fact that it is so multitasking! All four shades could be used as eyeshadows, the first three as highlights and the final shade as a blush. I can't see the second and third shade being used to contour since they are way too shimmery, but if that's what you're into, then apply away :)  My only gripe with this palette is the size of the ivory and blush shade. I would have preferred an equal amount of all four colors, but hey, that may just be me being a little greedy :P 

Giorgio Armani's Jacquard Face Palette in limited edition but it is still available at giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com and nordstrom.com. This Palette retails for $55.00.

I'll be posting the other two palettes in this collection next week.

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  3. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.

  4. Michael Kors Outlet Online was a huge success there and became very well known. The designer Kors then branched out into accessories including Michael Kors Handbags Clearance. He never lost focus on his American chic styling. Some of his most notable collections include the Michael Kors Totes, Michael Kors satchel and the Designer MK Outlet and Michael Kors Outlet Online Store.

    No one has to know that they are cheap Ray Ban Sale UK and no one will know unless you tell them. Each of the cheap designer Ray Ban Sunglasses Sale UK carries the signature brand on the lens to let you know that you do have authentic designer Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses UK.
