I missed the boat on the initial opportunity to purchase this palette, but was lucky enough to be able to swap for it! I'd recommend that other Armani addicts do the same!
This is absolutely ideal for travel. I imagine I could take only this palette and be set for colors. The (teeeeeny) eye shadows — #33, #3, #27 & #12 — are a perfect combination of shades for a neutral daytime look or a slightly more dramatic or smokey nighttime look. The two glosses are pretty and wearable!
The two-tiered mirrored compact is absolutely precious. This is palette is one pricey beast, but it's much more convenient than most others I've seen!

I rarely am interested in palettes. I always end up liking a couple of the colors, and not using the rest, but this one is definitely an exception! I adore every color in this palette! I wish Armani sold the lip colors in pots separately as well! I liked them so much! The shadows were perfect for me, I use each one separately as well as together. What a great combination of colors!

I am usually attracted to cool-toned or more vibrant eyeshadows, so this is my token "neutral" palette. I would never purchase the eyeshadow shades in this palette separately, but Armani's palettes are just so beautiful that I decided to buy this one as well as the Jewel one. I am glad that I did. It's a beautiful combination of colours to reach for when you want a neutral and elegant look. And although the shades seem more brown toned than "Berry" to me, they are not TOO warm. I think these shades would look beautiful on anyone. Simple, but beautiful.

This is my first armani palette and I won't go into describing the colors since that has already been nicely done in the previous reviews. Overall, it's a nice buy but I wouldn't repurchase (which is a first since everything from the armani line is worth repurchasing!). The eyeshadows are sheer but veryy nice in texture. I will probably look into buying more individual Armani eyeshadows. They blend well and are smooth and silky. The lipgloss colors are also gorgeous but don't last at all :( The eyeshadows are dime sized and the lipglosses are nickel sized. Since the eyeshadow colors in this one aren't that appealing to me and the lipglosses don't last, I wouldn't repurchase this one but I will consider the other Armani palettes because they're a great way to try out different colors.

Another gorgeous offering from Giorgio Armani. This limited edition palette contains an array of stunning eyeshadow and lip colours. Either alone or together, they create the perfect, polished spring look.
Housed inside the unique, double decker packaging are two appealing lip glosses - a delicate pink and a muted rose (almost cherry). Both are shimmery and very flattering. Texture wise, these are quite good. Not sticky or tacky like most glosses, but still relatively pigmented.
The eyeshadows - a muted chocolate, a soft taupe, a pastel lilac and a golden peach with pink undertones - are of superior quality. Pigmented, silky and enduring.
Armani fans will definately appreciate this product and as for new comers, this palette is a good place to start =) The price doesn't necessarily bother me that much - yes it is small, but it is so portable and the packaging is quite strong. Overall, a lovely palette and one of my favourites amongst my collection.

My dad happened to be in NYC a few weeks ago and called me from SFA to see if there was anything that I wanted him to purchase, isn't he a sweetie? Well, I'd wanted the natural palette and missed out, but I thought I would try the Berries. The amount of product is very small, but the size of the compact is convinient for travel. I have larger sizes of three of the four e/s, but I'm thinking of getting the other shade too. The colors are subtle and easy to layer for a sophisticated day look or a smokey evening look. The lip glosses are great too. There is a light pink and red raspberry color. Both are very sheer and can be layered. They are smooth and not gritty.The only reason this gets a 4 l/s is b/c of the amount of product, but otherwise a fabulous GA product. I'm a huge fan of his line.

The girls below did a great job at describing this palette so I won't bore you. I do have to put my two cents in about the price though (jeeze- and thanks Keealoha for bringing up the comparison to the NARS palettes- now I feel REALLY bad). Now that I got that out of the way, I must say this gets FULL marks for cuteness and for being practical. Love the glosses, however my only complaint comes from the eyeshadows. I don't know if it's just me, but I have to try hard to make the colors show, however, once I apply enough they look great.

What a wonderful little palette. If you travel, it's the best. Also, the quality of their e/s's are sooo nice. It lasted on me ALL day, and I have the oiliest lids. Plus, the colors are so pretty it just can't be passed up. Can't beat Armani in quality.

I love this palette. Been using it non-stop since I got it. It's so portable I just always have it on me. The e/s are lovely, the brown is my favorite because it's such a beautiful liner. The glosses are nice too, I just wish there was one spot for a cream blush then I'd be set. This is a nice everyday staple for me.

First, I must rant about the price, b/c for the amount of product you receive, no one should have to pay $58 plus tax! But I guess since it's Armani, they feel they can get away with that...
My synopsis will be very similar to dear Victoria's below! She did a great job explaining it, but please allow me to gush a bit! ;-)
The packaging is the so precious... it's the exact same size as the Armani powder foundation compact... so easy to slip into your purse. This round compact is very simple and stylish... it is two-tiered, with the 4 e/s on the top tier, and the bottom tier has two lip colors a tiny lip brush and sponge tip applicator. There is also a mirror. This is the same design as their powder foundation.
The colors are lovely. The e/s are: #3 plummy taupe with shimmer, #12 pale pink with hint of peach and slight shimmer, #27 a pale pale lavender, and the final is probably a new color to the line, a dark, brown with copper-y shimmer, perfect for lining.
The lip colors are pretty, a raspberry gloss with golden shimmer and a baby pink, nearly transparent, with opalescent glitter.
Cute, beautiful,a must-have if you like Armani... but when you compare how much product you get compared to a NARS palette, it's enough to make you feel you are defn. paying for the name.
