I thought I'd start a new thread, because I couldn't find a Givenchy one. 

 

Here are some pics and swatches of the spring collection:

I really like the quad packaging. Can't wait to find out more about the blush, I hope it's a new one.

Not sure about the products in this collection, but I always like to give Givenchy a try. I'm having a love affair with their new 'Noir Couture' mascara.

 

I think perhaps I'm hesitant about this collection, because the shades don't seem as wonderful as their Spring collection from last year (which I hesitated on and missed), which looked just stunning. I'm sure there will be something to tempt me.

heart.gif last year's Spring collection. Unfortunately, I was only able to afford one Bucolic powder at that time. I wish I could've gotten the blushes as well, and also a BU of the powder. I barely use mine as I'm scared to run out.

 

 

There's also a swatch of the black Rouge Interdit that's coming out next month: Givenchy Lively Collection: Rouge Interdit No 62 LiV's Lips Black Lipstick - ReallyRee Fashion/Beauty Blog

 

I like the idea of it, but I'm not sure if I would buy it.

I was obsessed with this lipstick the second it showed up on Sephora. I found the same link a few days ago and I don't think I'll buy it. It seems too sheer for my lips. Bummer.

Both the blushes and the highlight powder looked amazing. I also thought the Bucolic Poppy lipstick was beautiful in photos. 

 

I can't wait to try that shade out to see how it looks on my lips. Also interested in "Fatale", since I basically need a vampy shade from every brand...

post #11 of 42

i am so intrigued by this brand but not really sure where to start.  (i'm sure once i start i won't be able to stop....)

i've been eyeing those little quad shadows with four finishes of one shade....but just today at sephora i was drawn to this really nice red lipstick...illicit raspberry maybe? the swatch felt so unctuous. then i started reading reviews and now i'm intrigued by paradise pink....

post #12 of 42

i like their lipsticks, they are really good. and packing is beautiful 

post #13 of 42

I'm not sure I like the packaging of the lipstick. It looks cute, but the little string at the base of the lipstick doesn't appeal to me, just like how Dior Addict lipstick has a knob. The lipsticks have a pretty range of colour though, so maybe I'll get one to try soon, because I'm getting more curious about this brand. I recently purchase the holiday powder which I have not use. This is my first item from the brand!

The packaging is ok but the texture is not ! Chalky  and  not a subtle powder at all in fact and pricey too  ( here the Givenchy Holiday collection is really bad, nothing to die for and it's getting worse and worse just like Lancôme makeup  )

The blending is nice, colours too, texture is  yes bad as I mentioned.

Maybe the Clarins Odyssey illuminating powder is better, it looks gorgeous.

Looks just lovely. I'm a sucker for highlighters/ pale blushes...

Normally the only place Givenchy shows up here (other than their fragrances) is at Sephora, but I haven't seen this one yet. Their prices tend to be on the low end of prestige brands- a bit higher than Nars but less then Chanel or YSL.

I made the "mistake" of trying on a Givenchy lipstick. I tried on the new one "Liv's Lips". It is black in the tube but turns a luscious plum with a delicate blue undertone and some barely perceptible shimmer. And it is the most luscious feeling lipstick I have ever put on my lips. I love it. I may have to go back and get the new red as well.

Thanks Kate, so this is part of the spring collection? If so I must keep an eye out. I was thinking Givenchy usually ran lower than say special highlighters from Chanel that can climb way up there. I haven't used this brand in forever but I think I need to start paying more attention to it.

 

Sorry I've got brain overload.

It was from this year's holiday collection.

I don't know the US price, but it was more expensive than all these special powders from high end brands usually are. I think the case is made of authentic leather (someone correct me if that's wrong) and that's why it's pricier. It was 65 Euro here, the Bucolique powder from the spring collection this year was 50, for comparison.

Lipstick in a leather case? I'm IN!

Swatches of the new lipstick!

Not a fan of overly sweet and fruity scented lip products so I have to take a good sniff at these. The tube looks all right in the pics, although I prefer square tubes. I like Rose Tafettas and Fuchsia Irresistible.
