Every year, Giorgio Armani comes out with a gorgeous holiday makeup set, and the trend continues this year with the Giorgio Armani Holiday Night Light Eye and Face Palette.  The packaging is fabulous - the palette is housed in a glossy black lacquered case with the Armani signature in gold over it, and it comes tucked inside in an elegant suede-like pouch.   Inside the case, the palette is arranged in 2 tiers.  The top tier houses the eyeshadows while the bottom tier includes the face products - a Luminous Silk Compact Powder and 2 shades of Maestro Fusion.  The eyeshadows are a mix of shimmer and matte shades in brown, gold, and taupe shades along with an always useful matte black.  Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

I have mixed feeling about the Giorgio Armani holiday palette.  It is beautifully designed and packaged, and the quality extends down into the products included in this palette.  The eyeshadows are a lovely mix of neutral shades, and I love that there are matte shades included in this palette.  These would be  perfect for doing soft, neutral makeup looks (even using only matte shades) but could also just as easily be used to whip up a darker smokey eye or a shimmery gold holiday eye makeup look.  The eyeshadows are smooth and pigmented and seem easy to blend.  The face products included in the palette, though, limit the usefulness of the palette, making it ideal for lighter skin tones but not quite as useful for someone with darker skin tone like mine.  Still, I wouldn't complain too much if somebody decided to gift me one! :D

For those who can put the face palette products to good use, I think this palette would make a fabulous pick.

Giorgio Armani is currently having a 20% off sale (use code ARMANI20), so this would be a good time to buy this palette.
