I have been meaning to swatch and post all of the gorgeous Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric Powder Blushes, but have had such a hectic schedule that it took me a while to get to the counter to do it. The other day I ran into Sephora in Malibu-- one of a very select few Sephora stores to carry the line (and it remains unavailable on their website)-- and I swatched them all. Of the full line of these relative newcomers to the Giorgio Armani line, Sephora stocks the following 6 shades:

305 is a warm peach
306 is a peachy pink
503 is a muted pink with a bronzy brown undertone
506 is a gorgeous neutral rosy pink
507 is a stunning bright and vivid blue-based pink
509 is a show-stopping bright and ultra pigmented fuchsia that is a perfect dupe for Tom Ford Narcissist (see comparison post here)
According to Giorgio Armani,

Cheek Fabric introduces a renovation of powder blush. Vibrant, tactile colors in the thinnest, softest textures to brighten the face and highlight cheekbones for the ultimate glow.

All 6 of these beautiful shades are ultra finely milled, have superior pigmentation, and are of extraordinary quality. The shades are utterly gorgeous, and Armani has introduced a couple of rich and bold blue-based shades that will delight those among you who prefer vivid clear shades to the more muted shades for which Armani blushes are known.
 These blushes are so silky smooth, and they glide across the skin effortlessly.
 They can be sheered out for a subtle wash of natural color, but can be built up to maximum opacity.
Overall assessment: Powder blush perfection, truly! They are simply stunning!

$46.00 Available from Giorgio Armani, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's & Selfridges (Affiliate Links).

  1. I need to order 509 asap. I've been meaning to, but now I think these swatches might have moved it from the want pile straight to the NEED section!

    1. Hi rachlovespenguins-- If you missed out on Tom Ford's Narcissist and mourned it, you can dry your tears because they are basically indistinguishable shades! This is a really really stunning shade. I'm not getting this one only because I already have TF Narcissist-- and there's no need to duplicate it! Please let me know what you think about it if you end up taking the plunge! :-)

  2. Gorgeous shades! 509 looks insanely would probably last a lifetime! :)

    1. Hi Kristina! Isn't 509 gorgeous?! It's a great dupe for Tom Ford Narcissist (LE), and I agree that this insanely pigmented blush would probably last a lifetime! All of these blushes are silky smooth and super finely milled. Armani definitely did these right! They are definitely worth considering! :-)
