Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 Collection
The spring collection from this company has just been put up on the Nordstrom website and therefore I bet that it is at the counters too. I see that the model is wearing lots of pale blue eye shadow, a look that I hate and would never wear so at least half of this collection will not work for me. The pink lips that she is wearing are much more my style so I might start off by ordering a lip gloss or two and see how I like the formulas. Also the Eyes to Kill Mascara since I am always on the hunt for a great new mascara formula.
The Nordstrom website provides a description of the new color collection, "As seen on the Giorgio Armani 2013 Spring/Summer runway. An ode to femininity awakened by fresh, bright and joyous color." I do love that this collection is not all about bronzers since I feel like they often play a huge role in the Armani color collections.

So how do we replicate the lip look on the model?! There is not one lip product in this collection, a fact that has me very upset right now. I was looking forward to starting my journey with this brand by buying a lip gloss or two and perhaps the mascara. However I cannot start with simply ordering a new foundation when I can't try the shades and I don't know that I really like either of the blush shades or the palettes that are in this spring's collection. I am a bit disappointed now since I was really excited for the lip shade that the model is wearing and to order a new lip gloss or two...
