I was very excited to attend my first bloggers events this week! I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Giorgio Armani boutique at Cardiff Debenhams, where they were also holding their very first bloggers event. To me, Giorgio Armani embodies luxury and high quality and having long lusted after but never tried any of their products, I couldn’t wait to learn more about the brand.
The evening began watching one of the talented team create a beautiful makeup look using some of their iconic products. Each stage of the make-up application was explained to the bloggers and products were passed around so we could all see them more closely. Before long, every blogger had a rainbow of swatches on their hand!
After we watched the creation of a gorgeous Giorgio Armani face, we all took the opportunity to have a long browse around the counters to see all of the make-up delights on display. The Giorgio Armani packaging designs are personally overseen by the fashion designer himself and you can really see the attention to detail he puts into creating his make-up range. The products look simple but luxurious and the Armani logo adds to their exclusive, high-end feel.
I took advantage of one of the talented members skills and tried out some of the products which caught my eye. I’ve already seen lots of bloggers rave about the Luminous Silk Foundation so that was a must try for me. I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed. The coverage felt very lightweight, but surprisingly covered my blemishes really well and left me with a beautiful, smooth base. At £35.50 it’s one for the wish-list but I can definitely see my purchasing this soon as I loved the glowing but natural finish.
I couldn’t leave without trying out the signature Giorgio Armani red lip for myself and opted for a true red shade in ‘Four Hundred’ (£26.50). The colour was absolutely stunning and the lipstick felt very moisturising. I think the eye-catching shade would also look amazing on all skin-tones. The lipstick packaging is as elegant and unique as you would expect, with a magnetic closure that ensures the lid doesn’t become loose in your handbag. I think that’s another one for my never ending beauty wishlist!
All of the bloggers left with this gorgeous box* filled with Giorgio Armani samples, including a full size ‘Eyes to Kill’ waterproof mascara, trial sizes of some of the gorgeous red lipstick shades and mini foundations. This was a completely unexpected but lovely touch and I was so excited to receive the mascara, I tried it out the next day!
What are your favourite Giorgio Armani products? I’d love some recommendations!
