Givenchy has new signature eyeshadow palettes, called Le 9 De Givenchy, created by Nicolas Degennes, the Makeup and Color Artistic Director of Givenchy Beauty. Givenchy Le 9 De Givenchy Eyeshadow Palette is a palette of nine couture eyeshadows available in five unique and complementary harmonies for an infinite choice of bold and graphic looks. I was very excited after the first look of the palettes was revealed, no doubt the harmonies are beyond gorgeous. Even just by looking at any of the five palettes, you can get creative to define numerous looks.

I am working with 2 Givenchy Le 9 De Givenchy Eyeshadow Palettes – 9.02 and 9.05 and really loving how beautifully they are done – the shades compliment each other so nicely in a unique way. Be it a day or night look, natural or intense – you can achieve all within the tones with one palette. The formula is so creamy, smooth and silky, applies so well. It blends so easily and effortlessly.

Be it with a brush or just a fingertip, depending on my need and the finish I am looking for, they are easy to work with. I have used the shades alone as well as layered them, there are no issues. I have even used my finger to give a hint of shimmer or shine on my eyelids, the formula works so well. The formula is pigmented, easily buildable, and comfortable to wear. The longevity of the shades is pretty nice without settling into the crease or fall out once set.

Per the official website, “use the dual-tip brush to create a variety of makeup looks. Use the flat brush to smooth the powder over the eyelid and blur the colour using the blending tip.

▪ For a nude look: apply the lightest, most luminous shade to the inner corner of the eye, then a neutral one to the mobile lid. Blend both colors towards the outer corner to open out the eyes.

▪ For a sophisticated look: apply the shadow to the center of the mobile lid using the flat side of the brush. Bring definition to the crease of the eye with a matte medium brown shadow, then place a darker shade in the outer corner and blend in.

▪ For a couture look: smooth the palette’s couture shade over the entire eyelid up to the eyebrow arch, shading in the edges with a neutral tone. Extend the powder to the outer corner and apply a lighter, glittery colour to illuminate the inner corner of the eye. Define the lower and upper lash lines with a dark shade to intensify the look.”

The palettes feature four finishes, blending neutral tones with sophisticated shades for unending ideas of colour combinations and finishes. The pearly particles of different sizes and concentrations result to offer satin, glitter, and metallic finishes centring around one unique shade that signs each harmony with a positive couture allure. Then there are matte shades without the pearly particles.

The palettes are presented in a luxurious black compact stamped with Maison’s signature logo that includes a clip-on dual-tip brush for a two-in-one couture finish and looks.

I know I have shared the Lunar New Year Launches from the house on my Instagram a few times but sharing it here in case you missed my Instagram posts. Givenchy launched limited editions of its cult Prisme Libre loose powder and its iconic Le Rouge lipstick for the fifth year in row. Both products are dressed up in a vintage look inspired by old Givenchy caps: red vinyl leather bearing the golden 4G logo for Prisme Libre, and a red vinyl leather case with golden 4G logos for Le Rouge. Red, the emblematic colour of China’s Spring Festival, recalls joy and happiness. Then there’s gold, a bright and precious hue, the symbol of prosperity.

pastel shades for an even, matte and luminous glow on the skin and for the lips, Le Rouge No. 316 Orange Absolu – a bright pop of orange with a velvety finish.

Givenchy also launched a limited edition package of Le Rouge to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year 2020. I would say it is not just to celebrate one day but every day if love. I have had it in my collection, on my vanity since it was launched and every time I see it, it makes my heart happy.

The limited-edition case is decorated with red velvet lips, a pattern which was dear to Hubert de Givenchy and reinterpreted by Clare Waight Keller in the Resort Spring-Summer 2018 Collection. This limited edition highlights the N°333 L’Interdit emblematic shade – an intense and sensual red lipstick with a smooth, creamy formula that enhances the lips while delivering intensely pigmented colour from the first stroke.

Overall, so elegant and beautiful launches from Givenchy – one of the best new launches I always look forward to. I always get inspired by the innovation and the elegance of the house. Givenchy Beauty products are available at Holt Renfrew and Sephora.ca.

Givenchy Beauty has launched a new eye mask – or I may say a new addition to its Le Soin Noir range called the Le Soin Noir Eye Lace Mask. With a history and connection to its couture, lace is a symbol of elegance and refinement that brings out women’s beauty, it is a timeless, precious material that has always had a special place in the heart of the Givenchy House since it was founded. On the strength of this couture legacy, the Le Soin Noir Lace Face Mask joined the Le Soin Noir range in 2012. An artisanal masterpiece at the cutting edge of innovation in the service of
an exceptional skincare product. And now the new Le Soin Noir Eye Lace Mask joins the range, delicate black lace is now reinvented as the support for an exquisitely refined eye contour skincare product. This couture skincare mask is crafted in the authentic French tradition of Calais as a tribute to the House of Givenchy legacy.

“For thousands of years, all over the world, algae have shown an exceptional capacity to develop and thrive in the most extreme conditions. The Givenchy laboratories have been exploring this prodigious life force for many years and have succeeded in bringing to light their secrets of resistance, drawing on the original power of the algae. By combining them with a new ingredient extracted at the precise moment when the algae awaken to life – when their survival strength is at its peak – researchers have formulated a complex of exceptional vitality.

Rich in algae with protective properties, Le Soin Noir is able to offer complete age-defying benefits. Its black sap helps boost the skin’s balance while its ingredients help revitalize its natural defences to provide active protection. All the skin’s vital forces appear preserved and rebooted.”

The mask has a specific way to open and apply – it is very well explained on the backside of the mask with pictures of how-to. This precious lace eye mask, stretchy and saturated in Le Soin Noir technology, clings to the skin, from the forehead to the delicate eye contour area, to impart its age-defying properties within 10 to 15 minutes of intensive infusion. Massage any excess product into the skin with the fingertips or remove it with a cotton pad moistened with lotion. It can be used once a week for an intensive infusion of skincare.

The packaging has four eye masks and I have used three of them before writing this article. After using the eye masks, I have noticed my eyes look well-rested and fresh – like full of life. It has definitely helped with puffiness and tiredness around my eye area. The eye contour and forehead appear smoothed and firmed, visibly diminished and signs of fatigue seem to fade. The eyes appear rested, more open, and radiant with youth – the algae’s secret of survival is transmitted to the skin. With the combination of the delicate lace and the transformational technology – this mask is a beauty that is not just limited to the eyes to see and to the skin to touch but also luminous from inside out wherever it touches.

Givenchy Skincare and Makeup is available at Sephora and Holt Renfrew
