Givenchy has the Couture Edition 2019 limited edition launches which depict the elegance and classic array of creativity and art amalgamated into the products to give them the outlook and sense of luxury. Givenchy Couture Edition 2019 comprises of Prisme Libre, Le Rouge, and L’Interdit Couture Edition 2019.
Let me start with the Givenchy Couture Edition 2019 makeup launches. This year, Givenchy’s makeup icons Le Rouge and Prisme Libre are adorned with a new motif taken from Clare Waight Keller’s first runway show for the Fashion House. The cases of Le Rouge and Prisme Libre are embellished with a distinctive graphic camouflage in the form of the Scribble Tiger print, a real signature of the Givenchy Couture wardrobe, dyed in a navy blue and fiery red.
Givenchy Couture Edition 2019 Le Rouge and Prisme Libre are released as limited edition in the edgy, colourful design. Le Rouge No 304 Mandarine Bolero is a fresh, fiery, orangey red shade while Prisme Libre No 1 Mousseline Pastel is a harmonious palette of four loose powders in universally complimentary shades for a perfectly matte and radiant complexion with a sheer finish. Givenchy Couture Edition 2019 Le Rouge and Prisme Libre are available at Sephora and Holt Renfrew/Ogilvy.
Givenchy launched L’Interdit last year in 2018 which is a fearless classic and a tribute to bold femininity, the thrill of the forbidden was all it was about. For Givenchy Couture Edition 2019, the original Eau de Parfum is honoured in a collector’s edition and adorned in black lace. This exclusive couture design pays homage to the creations of the Maison and to the fabric so beloved by Hubert de Givenchy and Clare Waight Keller. The Forbidden Blend bottle is emblazoned with the 4G logo in silk-screened black lace, which is echoed in the box’s outline. The box’s bold red interior bears the signature of Monsieur de Givenchy.
The Forbidden Blend of a white flower and a dark accord, the Eau de Parfum created by master perfumers Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fann Bal is an invitation to defy all rules and embrace your unique elegance. Actress Rooney Mara lends her captivating face to this formidable and timeless perfume.
Givenchy L’Interdit Couture Edition Eau de Parfum is available in 50 ml at Hudson’s Bay.*Press samples
I am literally obsessed with Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum since I started using it last year and reviewed it here a few months back. This is one of those products that I feel the difference in my skin if I stop using it. My skin behaves better and there is a healthy glow to the skin when I have this serum in my skincare routine. In time for spring when the skin needs the most help to recover from the winter and be ready for the beautiful weather coming in, Sulwhasoo has a beautiful new collection launched last month called Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing collection which has three products – Bloomstay Vitalizing Water, Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum, and Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream.
I was invited by the Sulwhasoo team to experience the Holistic Beauty from Asian Wisdom through the facial using a mixture of permanent and new launched products. I have to agree that it was one of the best facials I had, the massage and the techniques were all so relaxing to the senses and the skin. My skin felt amazing and fresh since then, it has been almost a month now and I am all impressed with the results. Apart from the facial, it was such a pleasant experience to know more about the history, background of the products and the brand. Also, how the combination of science and ancient wisdom works wonders for skin and senses for an overall rejuvenating experience. I have been using the newly launched products from Bloomstay Vitalizing Line since then into my skincare routine.
Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing line is inspired by Sulwhasoo’s iconic flower – Plum Blossoms. These resilient flowers bloom even during severely cold weather and snow. Plum Blossoms lift spirits by signifying the coming of spring and end of winter, hence have become the symbol of overcoming adversities with integrity and faith. Plum Blossom contains a powerful antioxidant that encourages more vitalized and rejuvenated looking skin. For the packaging, if you see, it is so beautiful and delicate as flowers. The jars and bottles are heavy weight plastic which feels luxurious and pretty at the same time.
Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Water is hydrating, antioxidant-rich water which also provides lasting moisturizing benefits. It has to be applied after cleansing or ideally after cleansing and applying the first care activating serum. The lightweight watery consistency applies nicely with a cotton pad or by pressing onto the skin by palms of the hand. Then comes the Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum which provides rejuvenates skin with a fresh bright glow. The serum has a texture that is smooth honey like, it glides on easily onto the skin and absorbs quickly without feeling greasy or leaving any residue. After applying the serum, you already start feeling and seeing the glow and skin is comfortable and smooth. The last step for skin care routine is sealing all the goodness applied until now with the Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream which is a lightweight antioxidant-rich moisturizer formulated with Plum Blossom. It promotes youthfully radiant, resilient, and firmer-looking skin. This cream was already part of Allure best of beauty awards for the last year 2018. The cream helps relieve skin exhaustion, firms, smooths the skin while imparting a healthy and translucent glow. This line has definitely impressed me, even for my combination skin prone to acne, I am absolutely keeping the products in rotation.
Last but not least, not to forget the lips. Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick was used on my lips during the facial and it got stuck into my mind until the facial was finished and I was able to see what this relieving, cooling thing was used on my lips. The packaging of this serum stick is so elegant and luxurious. Essential Lip Serum Stick is a moisture-boosting lip serum that brings dull lips back to life. It deeply hydrates and creates a naturally vibrant look with delicate shades of plum blossoms to bring out the natural vibrancy of the lips. It works perfectly under other lip products during the day and also a perfect night treatment for lips to wake up with soft, smooth, nourished and supple lips.
Everyone aims to achieve a flawless skin effect which looks real and natural, I am no different. In the pursuit of achieving the flawless effect, I usually try and use multiple products which sometimes make the put together look a little over which is what I dread. Among all the multi-purpose products I have in my stash, I am so impressed with this single product I have been using since last few weeks. It works on multiple levels and for multiple concerns for me and which is why it is a must have.
Sisley Paris Blur Expert is the latest innovation from the brand which is a high-tech, compact powder with a beautiful silky soft texture to provide that flawless skin effect everyone looks forward to achieving. The powder is suitable for all skin tones. The powder-like compact texture is combined with a melting gel formula. The velvety soft, ultra-light consistency coats the skin with a perfecting veil that reflects and diffuses light for an ultra-light yet matte result which looks very natural.
I use Blur Expert on the entire face using a powder brush or a kabuki brush. It works nicely on bare skin for a radiant, natural result – my problem areas seem blurred. It works as a finishing powder over the foundation and perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. The skin looks smooth, radiant, and naturally matte. The powder is very lightweight, melts into the skin seamlessly, the universal shade works perfectly for everyone which is another great thing about this powder. The main aim is to create a soft focus effect to optimize the diffusion of light in a way that looks subtle, makes the complexion look smooth, imperfections are blurred. The wear time is good, my makeup stays on put throughout the day, does not accentuates my dry areas on the face, and very comfortable to wear.
There is one more product from the brand which I have been using consistently is the Sisley Paris L’Orchidee 3 Shade highlighting Blush in shade coral. This highlighter blush imparts a hint of colour and enhances the complexion with a sheer and luminous finish. The 3 soft, pearly, light-diffusing nuances bring radiance to the skin. The sparkle looks very subtle and natural without being overly sparkly or glittery, perfect everyday shade, even for work.
I am very glad to have this little gem of a powder – ‘Sisley Paris Blur Expert’ in rotation and would highly recommend you guys to check this out. Sisley Paris Blur Expert is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom*Press samples
