Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch Review

After my Giorgio Armani makeover at Selfridges, I ended up bringing home a few products with me, one of which is the High Precision Retouch ($35).

The Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch is a liquid concealer that comes in a slim black tube with a thin, eyeliner-like applicator. Similar to Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat, it contains light reflective pearls to “blur away imperfections, treat dark circles and highlight the complexion.”

The shade selection is surprisingly limited with only 3 available, which all tend to run light. I use #3.5 Light Sand, which is already the darkest shade and a perfect match for my NC30 skin.

Thanks to the Vitamin E and moisturizers, the concealer feels super creamy, non-drying and does not settle into fine lines. When applied onto my undereye area, down my nose and on the center of my chin and forehead, it does a great job brightening my eye area and adding radiance to my skin.

Coverage-wise, this is a lot better than the Touche Eclat. However, if you have serious undereye circles like I do, it will still not suffice to camouflage them completely. I highly recommend using this on top of your foundation or concealer as a highlighter instead of a concealer.
