There are two new launches from Givenchy Beauty, the packaging alone is so unique and luxurious that I can write a whole post on it. The new launches – Givenchy Disturbia Volume Mascara and Disturbia Liner follows the Givenchy philosophy – ‘Being daring enough to be different. Rules are to be broken. Norms to be defied.’

Givenchy Disturbia - Volume Mascara & Liner

Givenchy Disturbia Volume Mascara is the new Givenchy mascara, created by Nicolas Degennes, Givenchy Artistic Director for Makeup and Colour, is all you need in the mascara – in both formula and applicator. The mascara is left beautifully curved lashes and amazing volume, does not irritate my sensitive eye area or eyes, does not makes them look and feel heavy. The formula’s prowess is maximized by an unprecedented brush, exclusive to the house, a hollow silicone cylindrical applicator with micro-bristles holds just the right amount of product and applies it precisely and evenly, from the root to the tip. The mascara is packaging in a beautiful and elegant looking red packaging with soft spikes. The mascara works nicely, without shedding or falling, even after 8 hours that I have tested it for the maximum time. I use one coat for my everyday makeup and more when I am heading to an event or get together. The good thing is I keep it in my bag, apply it over my first coat of mascara from the morning and it works great.

In keeping with the red packaging of the Volume Disturbia, new Disturbia Liner is an intense black eyeliner that easily glides onto the eyelids and stays put for an impressive amount of time. The pen applicator allows creating lines with the precision of calligraphy. The extreme black shade can be applied alone or on top of the eye shadow without fading or running. I have been using it every day since last week and it stays put for over 12 hours, my eye shadow fades though but this stays.

There are two versions of Prime Blush available this year – the limited edition Prisme Blush No. 10 which exudes energy reminiscent of the hue of orange shades, and the permanent shade Prisme Blush No. 2 Love, like a bouquet of roses to say ‘I love you’. In the pictures, I have limited edition Prisme Blush No. 10 which are two beautiful orange and pearlescent springtime shades decorated with the legendary 4G emblem. The light shade highlights the skin’s radiance, while the more intense shade colours the complexion, producing an instant healthy glow.

Prisme Blush is creamy, light, and long-lasting formula which four shades featured in a pair of two-toned harmonies. The darker, matte shade is very pigmented while the lighter variation is a pearlescent highlighter offering an almost wet effect which softens the strongest colour or brings a radiant glow when the two shades are blended.

Dual Liners ( I still love and use the one released with Mystic Glow Collection for Christmas 2018 which I reviewed here) works as a double stroke of colour, the thin line works as an eyeliner and the eyeshadow are revealed with a single ultra-gliding motion for extra-easy application. The two distinct shades are curated to enhance the colour of the iris and brighten the eyelid.
