Even though it's still warm, fall is in full swing in the makeup world. And that means tons of animal prints - not just in fashion but on compacts, like the "manta ray" pattern Armani's fall 2009 eye shadows. "Inspired by the precious and luxurious materials used in Giorgio Armani fashion accessories, the palettes offer a beautiful selection of color harmonies inspired by nature. The collection features subtle hues that offer a new take on the timeless color 'Greige,' created by Giorgio Armani."
Meh. I'm just not sure how the pattern is much different from Armani's previously released fall offerings - it looks pretty similar to the python or croc palettes from years past. I understand that it's Armani and the company wants to express how the designer is inspired by "precious and luxurious materials" in their accessories, but 1. this is a bit repetitive, and 2. I don't think Armani has used an actual manta ray in their accessories. Thus, I don't think these are a must-have for the Museum. Let's hope Armani comes out with an interesting holiday collection (and preferably one that uses something other than crystals!)
