The Givenchy Christmas collection is one big glamour-attack! Two super-luxe, glossy polishes – Rouge Precieux and Bronze Precieux – are beautiful. The bronze shade has an almost green backdrop which makes it a little different from standard bronze shades and you can certainly mix it up with red base and bronze tips. They’re £15 each.

Okay, this is my star, star, star buy of the range. It’s Lash Sparkles; a transparent, shimmer infused gel to coat the lash over mascara.

..and it totally, totally works. I’ve just smothered my lash extensions in this and have the most twinkly lashes in the world. There’s genuinely not much I’d sacrifice my lash extension for, I am telling you! The gel is very sheer so while you are aware it’s there, the feel is hardly at all and it does dry off leaving little glints of gold on lashes. Lash Sparkles will cost £19 – grab it when you can!

Lastly, Givenchy Le Rouge in two new colours (I only have one here to swatch); Rose Precieux and Violine Precieux, both £24. The one above (and swatched below) is Rose – Violine seems to be more neutral.
