Giorgio Armani Fall 2010 Blue Grey Night Eyes To Kill Mascara (05)

From the Chronicles of the Blue Mascara.

Giorgio Armani's Eye To Kill mascara has set a new standard for what a top mascara should be. It doesn't only deliver excellent volume and length, but it's also dreamily weightless. There's no goopy stickiness even when the tube nears the end of its life (and I know, since I'm on my second black one). I don't think I ever needed a lash comb after using Eyes To Kill.

The new color, Blue Grey Night (#5), is the fall 2010 exclusive shade, part of Giorgio Armani's Night Viper look. It's a muted steel blue that isn't too obvious- the shade is darker than Graphite (#3) which look too dusty on me. Blue Grey Night looks good on my almost-black lashes and delivers that subtle brightening effect one gets from a (good) blue mascara.

Performance-wise, Eyes To Kill is as good as it gets. While I keep wondering if #5 is quite as lengthening as the black version (or maybe it's just my imagination and the fact the mascara is not black, thus creating less contrast), I'm very happy with it.

Bottom Line: You can't go wrong with this one.

Giorgio Armani Fall 2010 Blue Grey Night Eyes To Kill Mascara ($30) is available from, Saks and Barneys.

  1. Does this come in a waterproof formulation?

  2. I know what you mean by lashes not seeming quite as long when wearing a colored mascara. When I tried this one, I had the same experience so I very lightly touched the tips with black and all was good. It didn't distract from the overall impression of the blue grey, but did enhance the look of length.

  3. I still need to buy this mascara. Aside from your review, Sabrina (Beauty Look Book) also has me convinced that this will make my puny Asian lashes look lush and full! The $30 price tag still makes me a bit hesitant.

  4. I just got this mascara a few weeks ago and just started using it. I'm liking it alot!
    I have sparse, straight asian lashes and I only use waterproof formulas because it holds the curl better. I was told that this one is not waterproof but is water-resistant.
    For me, this mascara does not clump and it has not flaked or smudged. I don't like the price tag either plus I'm disappointed that blue grey doesn't show up on me, so I use black - but these are my only complaints!
