This Thursday is my office holiday party and the promotional image from Giorgio Armani’s Crystal Collection is my inspiration. Armani’s holiday collection is all about festive glamour. From the sequined top to the countered cheeks and the classic red lip, this look is so festive! The Crystal Collection’s art-deco inspiration comes from the stones featured in the designer’s luxe accessories.
I like Armani’s style of releasing a smaller collection with items that pack a major punch. They released a Lip Shimmer in festive gold patina. I think this shade would be a perfect shimmery nude for darker skin tones! The ruby red lips above come courtesy of Crystal ArmaniSilk Lipstick, which is packaged in a black lacquered case adorned with crystals. It’s steep at $38, but if you know of any red lipstick lovers (er…Carla comes to mind!) this would be a very special gift.
And finally, Armani drives it home with the limited-edition jeweled Crystal Palette. Featuring the same packaging as the lipstick, this is a double decker palette featuring a neutral, iridescent body powder and four shades of metallic eye shadows in shimmery jet black, sparkling bronze metal, shimmery silver and sparkling jade. This is definitely the showstopper of the collection! It’s gorgeous, but be forewarned, it’s $98!
