Giorgio Armani Deep Brown (22) Neo Nude Melting Coloration Balm Evaluate & Swatches

Dark brown (22)

Giorgio Armani Deep Brown (22) Neo Nude Melting Color BalmGiorgio Armani Deep Brown (22) Neo Nude Melting Color Balm ($ 38.00 for 0.12 oz.) Is a darker, slightly auburn brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had near-opaque pigmentation in a single layer when applied with a fingertip and medium to semi-opaque buildable coverage when applied with a brush. You’d have to use a lighter touch to get cleaner, buildable coverage as marketed.

The consistency was smooth, velvety, and clay-like, which had slippery properties but was not wet to the touch. The product is easy to apply on bare skin as well as on basic products because it does not tend to lift. As a cheek product, it wore well for eight hours and as an eye shadow for six hours.

Formula overview

$ 38.00 / 0.12 oz. – $ 316.67 per ounce

The formula is said to have “buildable” coverage that is “light, natural” and “blends seamlessly with the skin”. It is listed primarily as a cream blush but can also be used on “eyes for a touch of color”.

The pigmentation ranged from medium to semi-opaque buildable coverage, but they were more pigmented than translucent or “washy” so you should use a lighter hand or feather-light brush to get more wash of the color. As expected, they are more intense when applied with the fingertip than with the brush.

The consistency was like a drier cream powder – it had a bit of spring force, and when I really swirled my finger around in the pan, I could feel more of a velvety glide that had a bit of smoothness and creaminess, but it was quickly becoming powdery on my skin will. It turned into a transfer resistant finish that was flexible and easy to mix around the edges, but it had enough set and was quick enough that I would recommend working one area at a time.

I was able to apply the product on both bare skin and foundation without the formula tending to lift base products, although it definitely worked better with less emollient complexion products. The products typically lasted about eight hours on the cheeks / face while they lasted about six hours on my eyes.
