Givenchy has launched its Spring 2020 makeup collection called the ‘Givenchy Gardens Collection’. The collection is a tribute to Monsieur de Givenchy’s over 40 years of passion for the Jonchet gardens. Nicolas Degennes took inspiration from the colours of the peony to create both the packaging and the different shades of the Spring collection. Givenchy Gardens Collection comprises products for the complexion, eyes and lips for a fresh and intense make-up.

For Spring 2020, the lip launches in this collection are all about intense pigment and shimmer. Le Rouge sheathes are decorated with three different floral paintings. A triptych of exclusive prints is made to recall nature’s renewal and unveil a new, limited-edition texture. The stick of the lipstick is sprayed with a fine iridescent mist that projects a metallic shine for a frosted effect. “Starry” pigments add light and sublimate the natural curve of the lips. The lipstick has a nourishing formula that promises softness and lightness for an intense and long-wearing make-up result.

Givenchy Gardens Collection includes Prisme Blush in the iconic Spice shade – perfect for a fresh and luminous complexion. The case is adorned with a bouquet of irises, symbol of royalty and purity – nicely reinterpreted in an impressionist style.

The Prisme blush with four prisms and two colours: the orangey shade (a pure, matte and ultra-pigmented colour) is paired with the iridescent pink highlighter. These two shades can be blended together or applied next to each other, quickly and easily. The pink highlighter can also be used to highlight the tops of the cheekbones, the brow bone or the bridge of the nose.

Overall, a beautiful collection and it does inspire me with its spring vibes to include more colour and fun into everyday makeup. Givenchy Gardens Spring 2020 Collection – all the products are available at Holt Renfrew and Sephora.ca.
