I am so in love with the festive vibe and beautiful vibrant packaging with unique shades of products in the Givenchy Beauty Red Line Collection for holiday 2019. ‘In pursuit of freedom and diversity, the Red Line collection is a call to push your own boundaries and break the rules, with strength and passion. The power of red gives you the courage, strength and intensity to be yourself, truly. Red Line is a Christmas where nothing is out of bounds.’

A confident look that pushes the boundaries of colour and shines an ultra-luminous pink complexion. There are no rules to follow for this blush, highlighter and eyeshadow, the texture blends evenly into the skin for individual results and a look that tears up the rulebook. The Red Line collection comprises products for the complexion, eyes and lips for a Christmas where nothing is out of bounds.

Prisme Libre – No 10 Sparkling Mousseline

Prisme Libre, Givenchy’s iconic loose powder, with its soft and airy-light texture, is dressed up in an exclusive sparkling red case. The best seller shade 01 Mousseline Pastel has been boosted with pink sparkles for a natural, fresh and luminous complexion – No 10 Sparkling Mousseline. For this collection, Nicolas has revisited Maison’s iconic mattifying loose powder and reimagined its starshade, No. 01 Mousseline Pastel. This new creation reveals a delicately natural, luminous and elegant pink – while blue, mauve and white complete the quartet and create light. This special edition is enriched with mother-of-pearl, to add light to the complexion on top of the naturally even finish created by the evanescent. That means the same luminous matte finish with added light and radiance. It is very lightweight and suitable for all skin tones and types.

Red Lights Palette

Red Lights – 4 Colors Face & Eye Palette, the multi-purpose palette, holds a stunning combination of 4 deep creamy shades. This festive case opens to reveal the legendary 4Gs, in a bold palette to embellish the eyes and complexion. A quartet of daring shades: an intense red, a flamboyant pink, a bright peach, plus an illuminating metallic gold. The creamy long-wear texture can be used as a blush, highlighter or even as eyeshadow.

Rouge Interdit – No 27(l), No 28(r)

Rouge Interdit is launched in two pearly shades: 27 Bold Red and 28 Thrilling Brown. No 27 Bold Red is an intense red, dotted with mother-of-pearl to create a deep yet subtle shine while No 28 Thrilling Brown is a daring brown with a reddish tone (pearly red pigments). The vibrant colours have exceptional comfort for a second-skin sensation. The pigment is intense with a metallic effect. The formula of Rouge Interdit is very comfortable and nourishing – I have reviewed it a few times in the past. The longevity of the lipstick is pretty nice.

This lipstick is a tribute, to the first Rouge Couture lipstick created by Hubert de Givenchy, which had a case engraved with multiple 4Gs. Thirty years later, for these two shades, Nicolas Degennes imagined engraving the stick of this soft, smooth texture itself with those same 4Gs.

Overall, a gorgeous collection as expected from Givenchy Makeup and Nicolas Degennes. Red Line Collection for Holiday 2019 is available at Sephora, Holt Renfrew

Le Rouge is the legendary Givenchy Lipstick presented in its signature black leather case. The formula has a creamy texture that is very pigmented and has a luminous mat finish which is very comfortable on the lips. The combination of the plumping effect of hyaluronic acid spheres with the smoothing action of other key ingredients. I have reviewed the formula multiple times in the past, you can type ‘Givenchy Le Rouge’ in the search bar and see swatches of all the shades. It is available in 6 new shades and there are 23 existing permanent shades.

Le Rouge Deep Velvet is a new formula in a new case. This brand new variation on Le Rouge packaged in a suede case which has velvety touch foreshadows the makeup effect, vibrant colour with a powdery mat look. The formula is enriched with mango butter, very comfortable on the lips and a good staying power. It is available in 6 shades.

Le Rouge Night Noir takes its name from the Givenchy Fashion 2018 Autumn-Winter collection, whose silhouettes wavering between light and shadow also inspired the glimmering black case. Le Rouge Night Noir coats lips with deep colour tint with black sheen featuring ultra-shiny effect. The formula is gentle and comfortable on the lips, I feel a little plumping effect along with a little tingle. It is available in 6 shades.

New Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Toilette review

It is a lighter version of Eau de Parfum, paying tribute to the 1957 Original L’Interdit Eau de Toilette bottle and combines timelessness and modernity. The grey satin ribbon laced around the neck, sealed with the House’s emblem, a silver 4G logo, conjures up the radiance and freshness of the Eau de toilette.

Givenchy Beauty Solar Pulse Summer 2019 collection is the new summer collection for 2019 which is a bi-polar and mono-solar collection: “orange-blue” warm & cool, as imagined by Nicolas Degennes, Artistic Director for Makeup and Color. ‘A holiday in a contrasting landscape is the setting for these two shades, these polar opposites of the colour wheel. Two monochromes that complement each other perfectly. So perfectly that they can be encapsulated in a single idea: Solar Pulse’

Givenchy has reinvented its Healthy Glow Powder and created
Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder Marble Edition, a limited edition infused with a pearly highlighter. The two textures are interwoven to create a unique marbled pattern for a radiant healthy-looking complexion. This healthy glow highlighting powder leaves a sunny shimmery veil on skin for a healthy-looking complexion and a subtle pearly finish. Its 4G logo inspired by the Givenchy Couture DNA is printed in relief on a soft, smooth, silky and imperceptible texture. The powder glides on evenly over the face and provides buildable coverage with a weightless finish on the skin. The result is complexion which is beautifully enhanced with a warm and radiant look.

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder Marble Edition is available in two shades: a light Healthy Glow Powder infused with a shimmery pink for fair to medium skins and a darker Healthy Glow Powder infused with a shimmery gold for medium to dark skins. Not that dark skin tones can not wear the natural rose shade or vice versa, they both are very versatile and can be used by all skin tones.

The amazing formula and packaging of Khol Couture Waterproof is now available in two new shades to intensify the eyes. ‘An ode to a sunset over an arid desert: Khol Couture Waterproof “Tangerine”. Traces of a horizon… when the sky meets the sea: Khol Couture Waterproof “Azur”. Two dynamic, intense, pearly shades that blend perfectly on the skin. A glide-on waterproof texture makes them easy to use.’

This waterproof colour brings brightness to the eyes – even in extreme conditions like summer. Packaged in an easy-to-use pencil with a retractable end that comes in a creamy texture, also comes with its own pencil sharpener. The formula is smudge-proof. I have the brown and black shades in this formula as my staples for the waterline and definitely the formula is same and I can definitely add more colour into my routine with these two summery shades.

In Solar Pulse Summer 2019 Collection, Gloss Interdit Vinyl is available in two new shades. ‘It combines vivid colour with a feeling of absolute comfort. Bursting with vitality: a bright orange, “Solar Orange”. Fresh and sensual: “Vibrant Blue” is a wet-look clear gloss with a hint of blue.’

The gloss provides medium coverage and enhanced the lips’ natural beauty with the shine. The gloss is encased in a slender transparent tube with a black couture ribbon, Le Gloss Interdit Vinyl signals sleek style.
