The model’s look doesn’t look so great and she looks like she has a bit of a zombie complexion but I must say that the actual products are quite luxurious. They are beautiful and works of art. They are housed in lovely black Armani cases. The color scheme is mainly bronze and teal, a very popular combo it seems every summer.
EYES: I am in love with the Mediterranean Eyeshadow Palette. I would be. It is the most expensive item in the collection ($85). It contains four lovely powder shadows ranging from icy turquoise to shimmering sands. It also contains a bronzer powder. It is just a pretty kit. I occasionally fall for stupid products and I can’t exclude my fascination with The Sparkling Bronze Mascara Topcoat. It is a useless product but it sure is glamorous and does what the name says. I can’t justify purchasing it at $26 🙁 Two Smooth Silk Eye Pencils are featured in nice stone colors of jade and lapis lazuli. These go for $26. Maestro Mascara and Eyebrow Pencils have been relaunched. These go for $26.
LIPS: I love the Lip Wax which is a sheer, buildable bronzey “blush” for lips. It retails for $26. There are Lip Shimmer lip glosses in shimmery sheer shades of bronze, nude, and blackberry. These go for $26 as well.
FACE & BODY: There is a Sienna Minerals Bronzing Palette. It contains a lovely mix match of earthy mineral shades of sienna, bronze, and ochre. It goes for $65. There is also a Sheer Bronzer in a deep shade that retails for $48. Body tints are back. Armani has a Bronze Mania Body Tints Bronzer which is a gel body bronzer. It goes for $75.
Overall, the collection contains a few super luxurious items. The colors are ho-hum and predictable: bronze and teal. I don’t have a problem with that, those colors are flattering on me. However, dark lips are a part of the collection and I love that. Sheer blackberry glosses really work in summer. I know I go to those in the late summer since that is when berries come out anyways.
