As the year is drawing close to the end, Christmas and holiday season is approaching, which brings with it high spirits and the time to celebrate. Givenchy’s Les Nocturnes – Striking Night Light Collection 2017 draws its inspiration from this symbolic period and its association with Venus. The Goddess planet mediates between sunlight and moonshine to bring out the colors on the cusp of day and night. This guiding star borders the darkness that licenses uncertainty, mystery, and doubt. It’s reassuring light guides our impulses towards a waking dream.

Givenchy Striking Nights Eye Palette

Striking Nights Eye Palette (CAD $76) is a must-have from this collection. The palette has highly concentrated pigments and an infusion of pearlescent glitter for a bold and shiny result, just perfect for the season. The silicones and lightweight oil blend in a comfortable, creamy texture that makes application easy and ensures long hold. The palette’s black star unveils the natural effect of its two-toned iridescence, perpetually shifting between reflections of pink and blue – the two colors Venus, the planet, brings out when she appears at dusk and dawn, as solar and lunar light are filtered in the atmosphere.

The gold star is an illuminator of glittering transparency. It adds depth to the eyes when applied over black or just on the upper eyelid. Nicolas Degennes, the mind behind the collection, advises trying it on the top of the cheekbone and also as a finishing touch to lipstick on the Cupid’s bow. The copper star exalts the color black, which Nicolas uses to heighten the intensity of the eyes. The luminous glimmer of Venus imbues this collection’s packaging, with its multicolored sparkles against a black background recalling the star-filled firmament.

I have used this palette few times and I am so ready to start the holiday season already. The texture of the eyeshadows is beautiful, blends very easily and I did not notice any fallout. The shades are so unique and can be used in multiple ways. The luminosity is so beautiful, makes the shade even prettier. The gold star and copper can be used as a highlighter as well as eyeshadow. The black star gives a reflection of pink and blue, which is unique and looks great once applied. I never thought I would like this kind of cool shade but once applied, I am quite liking it. The packaging of the palette as you see is so beautiful, like the stars.

Givenchy Prisme Libre No 09 Éclats de Rose

Givenchy’s iconic Loose powder Prisme Libre (CAD $69) is also part of the Venusian harmony of this collection. This skin perfector in four rosy shades helps even out the skin for a smooth matte finish. The results are natural radiance and a fresh vivacity.

I have been using this as a setting powder and do like how it sets the makeup while giving natural radiance minus full matte effect. The packaging as all other products in this collection is so glittery and star-like. The inside packaging is same as all other Prisme Libre powders with a plush applicator with Givenchy written over it.

Givenchy Le Rouge-À-Porter No. 306 Brun Nocturne

Le Rouge-À-Porter Brun Nocturne (CAD $45) has a ultra-sensorial formula that gives the mouth luminous color and a naturally shiny finish. The packaging is so beautiful and is going to be perfect for the season to either keep it in a bag or on the vanity to add that shine and brightness to the season.

The formula is very comfortable to wear and the shade is beautiful for the fall and winter. It did not dry my lips and is very hydrating.

Being a fan of Givenchy all of my grownup life, every new release for Givenchy is looked upon by me as a little kid looks up at the stars. This Holiday season 2017, Givenchy is bringing this new fragrance called Givenchy Dahlia Divin Nude Eau de Parfum. This fragrance is described as a fresh variation, a delicate interpretation of the modern-day goddess.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Nude Eau de Parfum (CAD $107 – 50ml) is a fruity floral fragrance for women. The top notes of the fragrance are apricot and orange blossom, middle notes are jasmine sambac, osmanthus and rose, base notes are white musk and white wood.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Nude

Creator François Demachy describes this fragrance “Like a rough diamond, this new fragrance was chiseled from a thousand facets to express the radiant femininity of the woman wearing it. First, orange blossom tea sweeps you up in its fresh, crystalline tones and sparkling purity. Then a tinge of fruity sweetness comes in, velvety yet zesty, from the juicy apricot pulp. The ethereal floral heart is exalted by precious petals of sambac jasmine and rose, enhanced by an osmanthus note of apricotty, almost animal, leather. Base notes of blond woods radiate while carnal white musks envelop the skin in a soft, silky trail, like the promise of a last caress.”

The packaging of this new bottle embodies all the softness and delicacy of Dahlia Divin Eau de Parfum Nude. Its sleek lines and transparent top heighten the luminous glow of the juice inside, tinted delicate peachy pink evoking tones of nude skin. A white gold thread encircles its bottleneck to subtly enhance this gem.

Since the moment I opened the package and had the first spritz on my wrist, I am a fan of this fragrance. I have been using it every day, actually, I do not do this for all the fragrances but this one has become a favorite. I would totally recommend you to give this fragrance a try when you are in a store or can get a sample online, for anyone who loves fruity floral with not much thick sweetness but a light fresh touch. For me, it is more of sexy, tempting, charming, daring kind of scent and is going be my companion for this fall and winter.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Nude Eau de Parfum is available at Beautyboutique, Sephora, Hudsons Bay, Holt Renfrew.

You might have some hints about few of my favorite brands by now if you are following my blog and social handles. Givenchy is one of my favorite brands, whether it is their formula, packaging, staying power, performance, I love everything about them. I know the products I am going to write about are not new launches but they have been in the market for some time and are still available if you want to grab these. It is the perfect time to look and buy these as there are few more weeks left for the summer. I was sent these Givenchy Summer products for reviewing a few days back and I am already wishing for a longer summer. Nicolas Degennes is the creative mind behind the Summer 2017 Collection.

Givenchy Prisme Blush (CAD $55 excl taxes) is the reinvention of the original Prisme blush. The blushes are compacted into the shape of the legendary prisms. The formula is light powder and easy to use. The compact holds two carefully selected shades that complement each other. The palest pearly shade provides the light which can be used as a base where the color is applied or as a highlighter to add dimension by spotlighting the areas of the face that catch the light naturally like the top of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the temples (starting above the eyebrow roots). The darker shade gives a healthy radiant glow and can be used on the apples of the cheeks.

Prisme Blush has a new nomadic compact case which is a perfectly geometrical rectangle of shiny, lacquered jet-black. It is stamped with the seal of the 4G and embellished with the iconic Couture metal stud. Inside the compact case is a brush and has the perfect density to pick up a generous brushful of powder and a great travel companion too. The angled shape of the brush is designed to structure the face and has a dual function, which is it can smooth with the long side, or draw with the tip. The Blushes and swatches in the pictures below are Shades No 1 Passion and No 4 Rite. Black Tahitian PEarl Powder helps provide smoothness and provides radiance. Synthetic Pigments provide sparkling colors and a radiant matte finish. Lauroyl and Lysine adds ease of application, even ness and great staying power of the product. This lasted on me for over 8 hours.
