This is the time of the year I am very excited, about all the holiday launches, the uniqueness, creativity that is fascinating and mesmerizing, no matter what age you are. I am sharing Givenchy Holiday 2018 Collection – Mystic Glow which is all sort of giving me all the holiday vibes with the products, packaging, and the shades.

Mystic Glow is a halo of light, that radiates your personality. The Mystic Glow collection is dedicated to a radiant and seductive woman who is self-assured and protective. There are six exclusive and limited edition creations for glowing Christmas: the Mystic Glow must-have powder, the bestselling shades of Le Rouge and Prisme Libre in their luxurious sheath, and a dual liner in two long-lasting shades. I am sharing the Mystic Glow powder, the two best selling shades of Le Rouge, and a dual liner in this editorial.

Givenchy Mystic Glow Powder in No. 1 Mystic Pink is a Wet & Dry Face and Eyes Highlighter and is a must-have from this collection. The face and eyes highlighting powder capture pure pigments and light to leave a veil of mother-of-pearl with multi-glitter reflections on the skin.

It does not have any textured effect, its “wet & dry” formula is soft, silky, imperceptible and buildable at will. The complexion and the eyes are enhanced and sculpted by playing on the points of light. The black lacquered case with pink gold touches contains a star-spangled texture providing a unique glow.

In one simple gesture, its long-lasting formula subtly highlights the eyes, day and night, without any transfer of texture. It is available in two bright red and gold shades: Mystic Red and Mystic Gold. I have swatched the shade Mystic Gold. This dual-purpose tool is easy to use, and staying power is nice. The Mystic Gold shade is a taupe lined with gold.
