I’m loving all the brights from Givenchy Beauty Spring 2015 – I’m so ready for these colours which is always what happens to me in winter. I start craving spring shades round about now! The theme, from Nicolas Degennes, is playfulness – bringing the fun back to make-up. Used all together, I’d say that Givenchy Beauty Spring 2015 is a bit of a challenge but taking elements from the collection is going to be fabulous. One of my favourite cashmere sweaters is grey with a flash of neon yellow and this polish, Jaune Expression, instantly reminds me of that sweater. There’s a candy pink version, too called Rose Evocation and they’re both matte textures. I’d call them a demi-matte actually, because there’s a little bit of a buffed look to the finish.
The Gelee Interdit in Orange Distraction is a whisper of colour in a jelly format – it feels much lighter on the lip than a regular gloss and by using hyaluronic in the formula, you’ll get a smoothing and hydrating action. True, and I’m wearing it right now.
There are three Color Kajal Pencils – Vert Invention, a grassy green, Turquoise Imagination, an uber-teal, and Violet Creation, a vibrant purple shade. They’re beautifully creamy and deliver a proper smack of colour.
Le Prisme Visage Color Confetti is an illuminating palette for the complexions. In the lid are tiny loose beads that move when the palette does – it makes you want to shake it!
The powder itself is multi shade so you can use across the whole face with a big fluffy kabuki or you can add nuance to cheeks. Either way, it’s a very lovely thing!
There are plenty of changes for Givenchy – new Prisme Quatuor shades and a new harmony with both matte and sheen in each palette. The texture has changed too (as has Phenomen’Eyes, becoming smudge proof – for that I’m reading water proof but I think they’re being cautious; it probably won’t see you through a day of surfing, but will do fine for every day wear) and I’ll do some swatching in a later post.
This is my only picture of the two brand new palettes – the first is Inattendue and it’s so shimmery it’s almost glossy! The second is Impertinence, which I have and will swatch a bit nearer the February launch date.
The entire Givenchy Beauty Spring 2015 launches in February.
