Givenchy Holiday 2020 limited edition collection is here and it is beyond gorgeous. I know this year has not been very good and was not like any other year but who says we can not end the year with some glam and stars in the eyes with the hope that holidays will bring in what we missed all year – the warmth, love, and closeness of loved ones. The collection really perked up my mood and made me feel better. And I think that is all makeup is about – feeling good and empowered. I have to say that Nicolas Degennes has done really amazing work with this limited edition collection, I always look forward to his vision and work.

Givenchy Black To Light Palette is composed of 3 eyeshadows that are must-have for festive as well as a natural sophisticated everyday look.

The eyeshadows have a very smooth, silky texture, and blends easily. The packaging is truly stunning – presented in the shape of stars in an elegant case decorated with brilliant and enigmatic sequins. The palette is definitely a must-have.

Prisme Libre Loose Powder is the same iconic 4-colour powder that is long-lasting, blurring, smoothing, and provides radiance – in the holiday packaging. Prisme Libre limited edition is launched in the shade Voile Rose. The packaging is adorned with a bold and enigmatic glittery pattern that looks festive in an absolute couture way. The airy-light, the ultra-fine powder gives a beautiful and radiant finish to the skin while blurring out the problem areas and keeping the skin comfortable. The soft pink tones of the powder neutralize the dullness and adds a healthy, rose-tinted glow.

Le Rouge in shade 500 Enigmatic Red is a new exclusive shade launched in an enigmatic glittery case that is festive and elegant. The shade is deep red with plum-colour reflections that embellish the lips with a satiny and slightly iridescent veil of colour. The formula is the same iconic Le Rouge formula and is my favourite for my dry lips. It is very soft, lightweight, and comfortable. It is very pigmented, from the first stroke and glides on quickly on the lips giving a luminous matte finish. It is hydrating and smoothing for the lips, never dry out my lips. I am really in love with this shade.

Le Rouge Deep Velvet in iconic shade 37 Rouge Graine is dressed in an enigmatic glittery case for this holiday. The lipstick is very pigmented and has a velvety matte finish. The formula is lightweight, smooth, and comfortable on the lips.

L’interdit Lip Top Coat is a non-sticky gloss that unifies and smooths the lips while staying comfortable on the lips. The gloss can be applied on its own or can be layered as a top coat on the lipstick. The result is a subtle and beautiful veil of shimmering colour to intensify the look during the festive period. When used on its own, it adds dimension to the lips with a hint of colour. It is housed in a slender transparent tube with a contrasting cap having the silver logo.

Overall, a really practical and very festive collection. I can see myself using all the products in the coming days. It is hard for me to pick a favourite from this collection – all the products are amazing. I am really obsessed with the Le Rouge new shade 500 and the Black to Lights palette. I am also enjoying a bit of L’interdit Lip Top Coat on top of my lipsticks. Givenchy Beauty products are available at Holt Renfrew and Sephora.ca.

Givenchy Beauty has some amazing new launches which I am really enjoying and so glad to share with you today. The launches are not limited to limited-edition makeup launches but many new products are added in the permanent range of the house like the new Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Lip Balm – I gave you the hint what is my new favourite lip care and colour product.

Starting with my new favourite lip product, Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Lip Balm which is not just a lip balm but all you need anywhere kind of product for lips. The tinted liquid formula of this couture lip balm nourishes, repairs, protects, plumps, smooths and imparts colour to the lips. My super dry lips look and feel so nourished and comfortable, not just for the time the product is on my lips but even after it has worn off. One of those products which repair and protect.

The shades provide a natural colour along with a healthy glow effect to the lips. The melt-away formula applies nicely without being sticky or heavy. There is a slight tingle on the lips after I apply this liquid balm and normalizes quickly. The sleek pink-beige leather packaging is just so beautiful, definitely can relate to my favourite Le Rouge Perfecto Beautifying Lip Balm. There are 3 shades I have on rotation and swatched below: 10, 23, 40.

Frosted Nude 10 – A universal nude with subtle bluish undertones that flatter all skin tones

Solar Pink 23 – An evanescent coral radiant with extremely fine golden shimmer for a fresh look

Purple Ride 40 – A vibrant, bold violet

Next up is the New Teint Couture City Balm is a perfecting skin tint that not only provides medium coverage like foundation but the formula has a weightless feel like a tinted moisturizer. The silky-soft formula evens out the skin for a natural finish which does not look or feels heavy. It is very comfortable to wear, giving the feeling of bare skin. It is hydrating at the same, to the extent where it is not oily but just hydrated and naturally radiant.

The formula with SPF25-PA++ has skincare ingredients focused on providing a smart shield to protect skin against pollution, UV rays, and blue light emitted by digital screens. The longevity is pretty good, I did not feel the need to reapply or touch-up for the whole day while testing this out, even afterwards, I am wearing it almost every day – it is that comfortable and looks very natural. It is available in 14 shades, divided into 3 undertones and I have swatched two shades for your reference.

Now, coming to the most exciting launch – there is a new reformulated version of the iconic Prisme Libre. Givenchy Prisme Libre, the iconic 4-shade loose powder which has been the cult-favourite since it launched in 2006, is now reformulated. The look and feel of the formula stay the same while the performance is top-notch too. The formula is loved for how it blurs problem areas, mattifies the skin without drying, and provides a natural radiance to the skin. It is very lightweight and airy, the ultra-fine texture imparts a sheer, glowing finish without caking up or feeling heavy.

The powder is enclosed in a sculptural case engraved with iconic 4G logo and is available in 6 harmonies. I use a powder brush or the enclosed puff to apply it. I use the method – Shake, Stamp, Blend to apply and blend it – this has been my go-to way since I started using it few years back. Powder brush works well for more lightweight result while puff works well for even and precise application. The powder can be used alone over moisturizer or over the foundation or tinted moisturizer.

For me, shade 4 Mousseline Acidulee – for medium skin tones works perfectly. There are four unique shades – two for radiance and two for colour correction. All the shades work together upon application to address the shades of the specific skin tone(for me Shade 4). This finely milled powder looks transparent on my skin, my problem areas are blurred, and matte finish which is more of a naturally radiant. My makeup base lasts longer when I am using it as a setting powder. And also, when I am using it over my moisturizer or sunscreen, I feel my look is put together, looking radiant and imperfections are blurred.

Next up is the Le Rouge Deep Velvet Matte Lipstick. It is a very pigmented, powdery matte lipstick that is comfortable to wear and is weightless. It feels creamy when applied and is not drying. It does not accentuate the lines or texture on the lips. One swipe of this lipstick delivers high pigment. There are some really pretty shades available, perfect for fall and winter. The lipstick is adorned in a sumptuous red velvet packaging that looks elegant and sensual, definitely an ultimate couture signature to any look. I have swatched three shades of Le Rouge Deep Velvet Matte Lipstick:

26 Framboise Velours

27 Rouge Infuse – deep cerise red

38 Grenat Fume – merlot red

Overall, amazing new launches – perfect for everyday use as well as for the upcoming fall season. Apart from these new launches, I reviewed and swatched new Couture eyeshadow palettes here a few weeks back. Givenchy Beauty products are available at Holt Renfrew and Sephora.ca.

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.
