Givenchy Croisiere Makeup Collection For Summer 2012 is here – well, since about 2 weeks ago. They are available at Sephora ION (remember to use your 10% discount voucher if you have). When it comes to Givenchy collections, I always pick up items not on my shopping list; not that I have a physical shopping list but what I have in mind after looking at previews online.
In my mind, I was hoping to pick up one of the three Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder and both the Ombre a Fleur de Peau Eyeshadow. I didn’t see the bronzers and wasn’t too impressed with the cream eyeshadows (they seem to take too long to set which makes me wonder if they will crease).
Have you tried the cream eyeshadows? If you have, what are your thoughts?
You can find swatches of the Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder on Mostly Sunny here. Givenchy has also released a few new brushes, view them on Makeup By Joyce here. And lastly, review and swatches of Ombre a Fleur de Peau Eyeshadow in No.1 Pearly Rose can be found on Beauty Junkie here.
Instead of getting the bronzer and cream eyeshadows, I picked up the Rouge Interdit in 56 Delicate Rose [S$42 for 3.5g, made in France]. Unlike the usual dusty rose lip colours I tend to go for, Delicate Rose is quite vivid. It’s sweet and delicate and I have always admire the soft sheen of these lipstick range.
I couldn’t resist the smoothness of the Magic Kajal Eye Pencil in 2 Delicate Nude [S$36 for 2.6g, made in Germany]. Comes with a sharpener which is thoughtful and convenient. It spreads across my arm (when swatching) very smoothly and it’s very creamy. Glides on without tugging and it’s very well pigmented.
Yet to find out how it performs.
And the third and last item I picked up is Vernis Please! Nail Lacquer in 179 Delicate Brown [S$30 for 5.5ml, made in France]. I am in love with the rich chocolate-brown. Swatches of this nail polish is on its way.
Thank you for looking.
