In a nutshell, it’s stunning! Having seen the products that will be landing on counters from August onwards from Givenchy, I can be certain they will be in every magazine/paper/beauty blog in the land. With a theme of 19th century Dandies; wealthy men who represented the art of handsomeness, refinement and luxury (Givenchy’s words, not mine), the look is very Agyness meets Chrissie Hynde with lashings of blue/black kohl and dark, dark eyes in the Prisme Again range. But, it’s the packaging that stands out – black and white polka dot lids adorn mascaras and lip glosses, and the must have of the season, a limited edition gold pocket watch casing filled with a multi tasking pink hued cream that can double as lipstick or cheek tint. A new style mascara brush – the likes of which we really have never seen before – is the icing on the cake. This is the type of ingenuity and creativity that we’d expect from Givenchy Artistic Director, Nicolas Degennes, but he has truly surpassed himself on this amazingly beautiful collection. NB: Bumping into him outsite the launch venue while he was having a sneaky puff on a cigarette was my perfect opportunity to get some great tips and quotes for BBB. Instead, my knees went a bit weak and I just stood there shaking his hand and grinning like a love sick puppy. Oops. Pics will be up tomorrow.
