Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer Swatches!

Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer swatches from bottom to top (in indoor lighting): #2.5, #2, #3,  #4,  #4.5 and #5.
I have a proper review of Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer waiting in the wings (it really is  exquisite), but in the interim, I have received many questions about the exact shades of this product.  In turn, I am posting a quick round of images that I managed to take today while at Neiman Marcus! The Maestro Eraser Concealer, which retails for $40, certainly requires a detailed post, but the following images will have to suffice until I am able to finish it later on this week.
I hope that these swatches are helpful to those ordering this product sight unseen…

    OMG!!! I super love the shades of it. It fits any kind of skin tone. i think they are kinda expensive but I guess they are worth it. I got to try one of those.

      Hello Emie,

      Thanks for your comment…the concealer is quite versatile and, while a of an investment, is much more affordable than the Cle de Peau version!

      Take care,

    Hi! I like your site and all the reviews you do. Unfortunately they dont sell Armani Makeup yet in the Netherlands, though they do sell the skincare range. So I'll have to order the concealer online without testing it first. Luckily you have all the colors on your arm lol.

    Could you please brainstorm with me what color would be best? I use MAC NC35 for my skin and NW30 under my eyes, as my dark circles are dark purplish and supposedly the 'pink' undertone helps with counteract the purple.

    Thanks in advance, and keep up the great work!!

      Hello Anon,

      Thanks for your sweet words! If you are NC 35 and you want to lighten up your under eye area, then I think that you could get away with #3 (which is light beige with neutral to rosy undertones) or #4 which is similar in depth, but with yellow undertones. Any darker and I'd be concerned that it wouldn't be light enough to create a brightening effect!

      I hope that helps…take care and let me know if you have other questions…I wish you the best!

      HI! I totally forgot to answer, thanks so much! I ended up buying number 5 and it's perfect. I love it and just ordered the 2nd tube.

    Hi gorgeous,
    excellent review as always! Question, do you remember the mac studio sculpt concealer? They discontinued it last year, it was the one in a glass jar. I'm looking for something to replace it, but so far I haven't found anything yet. Would this be an option? And is number 7 more nc35'ish or more nw'35'ish? ( ps, it has to be subtle like the mac concealer, I'm a male, so it has to be invisible almost!
    Sorry to bother you!

      Hi Nick,

      Thank you so much! I do know what you are referencing and yes, this concealer is quite invisible on the skin once buffed in. I highly recommend it! I haven't actually swatched #7 (only #2-#5) so I can't say for certain about its undertones…so sorry!

      Take care and have a wonderful rest of the week,

      I'm sorry, this was supposed to go on the armani maestro compact review page that you had! Not on the concealer, but on the foundation!

    Hi! Sorry for the late comment here .. But I am super tempted to buy this and need to ask a few questions!

    1) I am very tan, both naturally and from the sun in SoCal .. so I am debating between 4.5 and 5 .. what would you recommend? I am neutral to warm, more warm for sure.. do any of these shades oxidize or look orangey on ?? I want a very natural concealer,one that brightens too, but no orange undertones!

    2) How is blendability? These blended shades look quite dark (especially 5) .. I want to make sure these blend seamlessly into skin before I drop $42!

    Thank you for your help ! Your pages are amazing ! 🙂

      Hello Joeyy and thanks for your kind words~

      In response to your question, I would suggest the #5 as it is more golden and the 4.5 can oxidize a bit too rosy/orangy on a warm, tan complexion like yours.

      The blendability is fantastic…this is an extremely high-performance formula in terms of seamless coverage!

      I hope that helps…xx,

      I suggest shade 3 if you are hoping to go a bit lighter than your foundation!

    I purchased Armani dark circle concealer and have to say I was crushingly disappointed. It does not cover as well as the so-so coverage I get from using a Revlon creme (which if I pat on 3 X is OK).
    For the price this was a total waste of money. Shade is fine. Coverage is minimal.

      Sorry to hear that you didn't love it…it is definitely a fluid formula. Have you tried the Cle de Peau Beaute concealer yet?
