Giorgio Armani Holiday Collection 2012

Armani's Holiday Collection for 2012 screams sophistication, take inspiration from the utterly beautiful campaign image for the ultimate in festive chic.

Central to the collection are two limited edition palettes (€65) which contain all you need for the eyes, face and lips.

The black lacquer double-tired cases contain a frosty highlighter to add shimmer to the complexion, two creamy satin eyeshadows and a compact lipstick for matt colour.

There are two colourways, Moonlight Beige which contains shades of taupe and Moonlight White which contains shades of grey, both giving a subtle, sophisticated finish.

One of the most interesting products in the line is the Lip Maestro Zero Colour (€26), new lip enhancer which can be used alone or as a top coat on lips. Used alone, it plumps up the lips and adds luminosity, while used over lip colour it adds a subtle matt texture.

Finally the Micro-Fil Loose Powder Moonlight Pink (€36.50) is a fine, translucent powder which can be used on the face, shoulders and décolleté to add seductive shimmer.
