The Eyes Have It

One of the best gifts I received this Christmas from my mom (who is completely awesome, btw) She gave me a ton of goodies from Armani Beauty, which is my favorite makeup brand ever. I'm obsessed with eye makeup, but also very picky about it. I love Armani because they have a great selection of matte, shimmer, and glitter shadows. A lot of companies don't have any matte shadows, and that drives me nuts. My mom did a great job, because I love every single thing she picked out.

Check out these gorgeous picks, courtesy of my lovely mother:

And because she didn't forget about my lips:

1 | Eyes to Kill Mascara | Steel Black
An awesome mascara for everyday. Doesn't clump, volumizes, and not too heavy.
2 | Smooth Silk Eye Pencil | Black
Goes on smooth and doesn't smudge more than it should.
3 | Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara | Black
Mascara for going out. Super volume, super dark, but definitely not for everyday.
4 | Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow | Rock Sand
Intense is right! Super pigmented, and it looks amazing on.
5 | Eyes to Kill Palette | Gun Metal Grey
A little too bright and shimmery for day, but it was perfect for going out!
6 | Maestro Eye Shadow Quad | Desert
I've been using this practically every day! I love the combination of colors.
7 | Lip Wax | Raspberry
The texture is in between a tinted lip balm and a lipstick. It looks kind of bright, but it ended up looking great on my lips.


  1. Ooh, these look fantastic! I love the luxe, sleek packaging.

  2. I have never tried matte eyeshadow! It looks divine. I will def have to check out Armani beauty.

  3. can never forget about the lips. these all look fabulous! i'm actually in need of some good mascara right now. thanks!
