Celebrating a decade of anything – whether birthday or anniversary – is no small feat. 2015 is the 10th anniversary for the Givenchy beauty range, aptly named Givenchy Le Makeup. With its bold approach, innovative formula, luxurious packaging, Givenchy Le Makeup truly exudes distinctive, modern, and creative luxury, bringing haute couture to your vanity.
Celebrating Givenchy’s vision to “create a dress code for beauty allowing women to express themselves freely”, there’s a reason why this brand is closely associated with the ever elegant, and sophisticated Audrey Hepburn, beyond that beautiful black dress.
In this post, I’m going to focus on two eye makeup products that has made the brand well-loved over the years.
The Givenchy Ombre Couture ($24-29, available here) is the new generation of creamy eyeshadow with an incredible long-wearing hold. The creamy eyeshadow lasts up to 16 hours, and although I have yet to test it for the full 16 hours, I can attest to the wear time on a 10-hour work day. The product can be worn alone or as a base for your eyeshadow/eye makeup. The waterproof formula has that gel-to-powder finish which applies beautifully on the eyelids on its own. The range includes 10 neutral shades, including a unique “white” top-coat and can be mixed to create custom colours. Creamy and easy to blend, this multi-tasking hero is sure to please even the most demanding beauty connoisseur out there!
The Givenchy Noir Couture 4-in-1 Mascara ($35, available here) is a striking mascaras that I have raved about in the past. The formula provides everything you could ever wish for in a mascara: intense volume, strong curls that lasts, lengthening effect, and lash care that blurs the line between skincare and makeup. The unique trio of rounded balls that make up the wand of the mascara is unique as it helps to magnify and thicken the lashes, ensuring that every single hair gets coated in just the right amount of product. The mascara can be easily build with several coats, depending on the intensity that you want to achieve!
Now it’s your turn! Have you tried either the Noir Couture Mascara or the Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Share with me comment section or through Twitter or Instagram!
