GIORGIO ARMANI High Precision Retouch 4.4ml $35／A$54
My IPSA Eyezone Concealer smelt funny so I (sadly) tossed it and bought this to replace it. I can’t think of a reason why I bought this (as opposed to something else) other than I’m somehow on a mission to try everything GA. （*｀▽´*）ｳﾋｮﾋｮ
I only have one concealer at a time so I’ve been using this regularly for a few months and I like it! ･:*:･ﾟ☆ｄ(≧∀≦)ｂﾟ+.ﾟｲｲ It has some weaknesses but generally I can live with those.

GIORGIO ARMANI Crystal Palette 1 x 9g／2 x 0.3g／2 x 0.7g
I finally managed to get my hands on this year’s Crystal Palette! ☆⌒v⌒v⌒ヾ((｀･∀･´)ﾉ ヒャッホーィ♪ There weren’t any testers yet, so I didn’t get to try it, but it looks pretty. *:.｡☆..｡.(´∀｀人) And I’m too impatient to wait for testers. ((´∀｀*))ヶﾗヶﾗ Tsumori☆SHU wasn’t on display yet, but the pricing (the flyers were printed already so I had a peek (ﾉω｀*)んふふ♪) didn’t look too friendly so I think I’m skipping. (Anybody else in AU, the cosmetic pouch is $175 ∩(+｀ω´+)∩･･･ｷｭｩ)

I haven’t tried the (more famous?) Armanisilk lipsticks yet — I’m holding off till an LE colour I love, but the Shine and Silk lipsticks are so nice I’m really looking forward to trying Armanisilk. ﾟ.+:｡ﾞd(・ω・*)ﾈｯﾟ.+:
#33 was (maybe?) a limited edition shade from this year’s Spring collection. #4 is definitely a permanent colour. And actually these two colours look very, very similar in the tube! ∩(+｀ω´+)∩･･･ｷｭｩ I didn’t realise that when I was buying them though. But the difference in pigmentation means they don’t apply the same on me. ← self-consolation(?) ∩(´∀｀)∩ｳｪｰ ﾊｯﾊｯﾊ♪

GIORGIO ARMANI Designer Shaping Cream Foundation 30ml $65 (excl. tax)
I’m scraping the bottom of this already. d(*・ω・*)b♪ (Although I very wastefully always scoop out more than I use… (´∀｀；A)
Last winter I was looking for a moisturising foundation with good coverage (I was all red, flaky and sensitive from retin-a (；´Д`A “`) and settled upon GIORGIO ARMANI as it was one of the few brands I’m interested in with a counter near me. My other foundations were too dry and I needed a new one! (*´∀｀)ｸｽｸｽ

GIORGIO ARMANI Fluid Sheer 30ml $58 (excl. tax)
The official website also refers to the #2 shade as Shimmering Beige, which is a pretty accurate descriptor of the colour.
I use this as a luminiser, mixing it into my foundation. It adds radiance and thins out thick, cream-type foundations, allowing them to be spread and applied more easily. The Fluid Sheers can, however, also be used as highlighters.

GIORGIO ARMANI Sheer Blush 6g
This is the second blush I purchased, but it’s wormed its way into my heart and is most probably my favourite. It’s a sheer, shimmery, warm peachy-pink shade that applies as the perfect natural flush. I don’t like the matte black packaging (boring!) but I like everything else about this blush. If I absolutely had to survive on just one blush, this would be my pick.

GIORGIO ARMANI Micro-Fil Loose Powder 15g
I purchased this in shade #1, the lighter of the two beige shades my counter had. The third shade, #0, is a translucent shade. #0 looks white in the container and has a lot more shimmer than both #1 and #2, both of which are by no means matte by any definition.
By weight, there’s 15g of powder in each container, but the amount supplied is actually comparable with the 30g tubs of more typical loose powders.
