Jewels palette is my least favorite armani palette. The palette contains 4 eyeshadows which are silvery grey, naval blue, mint green and mauvy purple. They all contains shimmers and loads of pigments. The eyeshadows in this palette are a bit too intense to wear everyday and not compliment each other perfectly like other GA palettes. I think it's a bit weird to have mauvy purple in this set. Two lipstick shades are soft pink and berry red. The palette comes with two brush, two ended sponge applicator and lip brush. If you like colorful eyeshadows with tons of pigments, this might be a palette for you. However, I prefer neutral looks more so I don't reach this one that much. Update: I start to like this palette to create smoky look!

I love this one and the Oscar palette. Pigmented shades which really seem to flatter my dark brown eyes and work well with my colouring. I have almost used this one up and that rarely happens.

I was hooked on the Armani Palettes after having the Neutrals, and the Berry's ones, so of course I had to have this one as well. Unfortunately, it was not as universally flattering as the others seemed to be. I already had the dark blue shadow, which I love, other than that one, I really didn't like the other colors in it. The red lip color is wonderful. I use it to stain my lips. I would purchase a full size of that color any day, but the pinker shade was pretty horrible on me. I love armani but this was a palette I probably could have lived w/out. My favorite is still the berry one, and the neutral is a close second!

Lovely little packaging, but the e/s and the lip colours contain only a very small amount of product hence it makes the whopping price paid a little unjustified.

My sweetie picked this up for me sight unseen in New York at Saks, and I couldn't wait to open it and use it. I loved the packaging immediately and I was glad to see that all the eye shadows were wearable for me. I especially love the light blue and the green shadows. They really go on smoothly and are highly pigmented. I don't like the puny applicator/brush it comes with, as I expected better form Giorgio Armani. The lipsticks, although high quality and wearable as well, are boring and lifeless. I can use them, but they don't hold my interest, and I'd rather use other lipsticks I have. I wouldn't want to own this again, as I do think other GA palettes might be better to purchase in the future. Maybe I should have asked for the Spring palette instead, as Saks had some of those left over still. I do like this though, and will use it up, but I won't be extremely sad when it's all gone.

A whopping $102AU over here, this is a small palette with very small e/s and lip colours. The only two e/s that I liked were the dark blue and green but I already have similar colours in other brands. The lip colours are tiny and I can imagine they would be used up very quickly. I had a makeover using this and I found both the navy blue and green a bit too subtle as I like my eyes to look more striking/smokey.
ETA: I was given this palette as a gift and after playing with the colours myself (rather than the previous experience with the MU artist applying it) I absolutely adore this palette. The purple shade is my favourite and I am almost out of it. The dark blue is perfect for a liner and the green is nice on the lid paired with the purple in the crease. I have only used the llight blue twice. I used to think the Armani e\s too sheer and preferred Stila but now I am a convert. The sheerness is markedly better for a more natural look. The two lip colours are lovely shades but I do find them a bit drying on my lips and I do need to apply a gloss or a balm every few hours that I am wearing them.
I do still think the pans are tiny and the price is very high here! lol

I love this. Although the sizes of the products are tiny, the packaging and the colours make this worth buying. The green eyeshadow shade in this compact is just PERFECT! It reminds me somewhat of LM's "Mermaid"... only better. I find myself reaching for this shade almost everyday. The pale and dark blue are also beautiful colours, and the purple is a gawjus subtle crease shade. I don't find myself using the lip shades as much, but this compact travels with me always.

I went to the GA counter in Montreal with the intention of JUST LOOKING, and of course, came away with this palette. It was just too cute to resist, and the colours are so pretty. I've never been able to wear purple shadow before (until this one), the blues are lovely and the green shadow highlights my brown eyes. The sizes of the eyeshadows/lipsticks in the palette are pretty tiny, but the product itself is typical GA quality (yes, I know I'm trying to justify!!). $65 CAD at Les Ailes de la Mode in Montreal.

Well, let's see. It's portable, has gorgeous lippies and the e/s are top quality. I actually think I like this palette the most, since the e/s have more pigment to them and they are really silky. I put the lavender color to the test and it stayed put and did not crease all day. The colors look a little brighter than they are because they seem to have neutral undertones (like the whole line). And yes, we are getting royally smacked with the price. $58. Oww!! Still, if you're into Armani don't miss this one.

Having missed out on previous Armani palettes, I eagerly snapped this one up the moment it was available in Sydney. However, after playing with it, I've to say that I'm a bit disappointed with it. First of all, it's soooo tiny, definitely not worth the retail price of AU$102. The colors are not particularly outstanding in my opinion and can be easily found in other brands. Another complaint - the eyeshadows are too soft that my e/s can't pick up much pigment - I guess I need to find a stiffer brush to get the colors to show up more. Also, I'd prefer it if Armani were to proper brushes in it rather than the flimsy sponge tip applicators, after all, the price is rather dear for the tiny amount of eyeshadows and lip colors. Having buyer's remorse now and would definitely not re-purchase.

Love the packaging - ideal for travel. It's starting to grow on me. I don't usually like palettes that are pre-made as I don't get to wear all the colors. This is similar to earlier collections but I didn't like the neutrals/browns so I didn't get it. My first GA palette and totally worth it - 4 e/s that are shimmery and silky smooth, light green, light blue, pale lilac and a mauvish purple. Not so good with color descriptions. It's really easy to use - I apply a frosted pigment as a wash, then accentuate my browbone with one or more of the colors. Perfect everytime. I think the lippies are similar to the previous ones, with a true-red and a muted rose/pink. Great texture. Packaging is ingenious. I might be hooked on them for now! Don't regret buying it which is rare.
