All About Armani: New Maestro Eye Shadows

June 1, 2009

Giorgio Armani has finally released some new maestro single shadows! The shades released are the missing numbers in between 19 and 37, however there are still a few numbers missing and I have not been able to find information online or in store yet. Some shades appear to be reformulations of their original shadows. Below are pictures and descriptions. I highly recommend you visit makeupalley and check out member REPLICA for her fabulous notepad listing descriptions of all the armani products.

As far as I know, there are quite a few stores that do not have these in yet. Some counter managers are unaware of these even coming out, but I assume they should be trickling in very soon. E-mail me if you need a contact to order these. Just a heads up – the 2 stores near me did receive limited stock in their first shipment.

Giorgio Armani describes his Maestro shadows as follows:

“The formula of maestro eye shadow contains pure silk-like powders to create a soft, lightweight texture that glides onto eyelids in a silken veil of colour. Three different finishes replicate the breathtaking effects Giorgio Armani achieves with silk: matte gives smooth, deep colour; satin creates a lustrous sheen; sparkling illuminates with iridescent shimmer.”

Now, onto the new shades photographed with a few already-existing shades:

* Maestro #20 – shimmery warm golden brown, very similar to Maestro #4, but the Maestro #20 is more golden, slightly lighter, also the Maestro #20 could be a more golden/shimmery version of the original 20 (NOTE: Maestro #20 is pictured in one of the Japanese Magazines, posted HERE)

* Maestro #25 – satin yogurt-pink with pale mauve tones (looks like a dupe for the original #6)

* Maestro #26 – satin medium-dark brown, neutral-cool

* Maestro #27 – shimmery warm neutral taupe (looks like a dupe for original #11)

* Maestro #28 – shimmery light yellowy buttercream, paler than the more yellow than the original #9

* Maestro #29 – shimmery pale pink (looks like a dupe for original 12, but more pigmented and more shimmery)

* Maestro #30 – shimmery pale seashell pink, slightly deeper than Maestro #29 (this is a dupe for original 53)

* Maestro #32 – shimmery taupe-grey (cooler than Maestro 27 but not as cool-grey as the original 26)

* Maestro #34 – shimmery baby pink, (seems like a dupe for original 55 with a tad more pink)

* Maestro #36 – a matte buttercream (yellowish cream not pictured)
