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.
