Here is a preview of the Givenchy Autumn 2014 makeup collection - Extravaganzia. And I love the lines for this campaign – Naturally Eccentric. Extravagantly Natural.
The products in this collection are:
Palette Extravagancia: Must-Have, £45
This palette was inspired by mother-of-pearl and includes pink lipstick, and four eye shadows which are satin brown and purple, burnished gold and shimmering silver.
Blush Memoire de Forme in Rose Extravagant, £26
This new blush formula is described as a non-sticky “associative polymer gel with innovative elasticity”. It contains 70% of water so should feel light, smooth and hydrating on the skin.
Noir Couture, £23.50 and Ombre Couture, £18
- No5 Violet Etonnant, a purple mascara and No12 Or Insolite, metallic and sparkling eye shadow.
I don’t watch that many YouTube beauty videos, but there is one that I really liked, and that was Lip Products Addict Tag. I thought I’d do my own version in form of a post. So here we go…
My favourite lip treatment, sadly, has been discontinued, so the one that you can buy now has to be NUXE’s Reve de Miel. I am not very original here, but this thing is da bomb! It does everything you’d want a lip balm to do, nourishes and moisturizes the lips; it’s a perfect overnight balm.
Best Eye Catching Red
I do love a good red and have a lot in my rotation, but I’ve noticed that I get the most compliments whenever I wear Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red. The name speaks for itself, no? It’s a gorgeous and flattering red, I highly recommend.
You can buy it from Feel Unique for £13.25.
Best Luxury and Best Drugstore Lipstick
My most-used luxury lipstick has to be Dior Addict, so I’ll include thisRead More
You all know that I am a huge Givenchy Le Rouge fan. I think that is the most beautiful lipstick ever released.
After brining out the classic black packaging the brand created several different case variations, but non of them made my heart go faster.
Until I saw a burgundy leather design several weeks ago. My instant reaction was: “OMG, I need this NOW!” That was the only beauty product I could think of since that time.

Rejoice the lovers of pen-form eye liners! I am personally a huge fan, and use this one a lot! Three brands are brining out their versions.
Givenchy released a Liner Couture Black which you can get from Harrods for £23.50. The tip looks very thin, so I assume that it should work even for a precise between-the-lash application.
Even though this post is all about the liners, I thought I’d mention the new mascara from the brand, as well – Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Black Taffetas, which you can get from Harrods for £23.50 or Sephora for $32 which is a volumizing mascara. I could get it only for the packaging. Seriously, the brand just kills it with their new design! The best. Period.
I also couldn’t be happier that my favourite Mariacarla is the face of the launch!

Since we are talking about new lip launches today, I thought I’d share about my current top 5 lipsticks in different colour families, from berry to pink; and from red to coral.
I have stupidly forgot to include my favourite current red in the photo (but you can see it here), which is Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red (get it here for £13.25). The shade lives up to the name, whenever I wear it I get a lot of compliments, even from people that don’t like red lips in general. Yes, really. I think this is the best Daniel’s lip product, and I do have quite a few.
What about other four?
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
I don’t really do nude, so this is my perfect everyday shade, a sheer baby pink with a beautiful delicate shimmer. Don’t worry, it’s nothing like those pearly shades from the past. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, looks like I will have to re-purchase it soon.
Where to buy: from Selfridges for £24.
