The (quite literally) star of the collection.  Apparently with this product Nicolas Degennes creates a bridge to a fantasy world inspired by super heroes and heroines. You get three shades for the eyes and complexion: “the plum defines eyes for greater intensity; pink coral acts as a spotlight to showcase brows or the upper eye lid and can be used as a blush; and

Optimistic Blush and Lipstick

I can get inspiration for the posts pretty much from everything, and often it is music.

The other day I have been listening to this song (The Echo Friendly “Panic” here)  with the  following lyrics: “Put on my blush and lipstick and try to look optimistic”.I was having a rough time, so it made me think…

Makeup can be seen [and often is] as something shallow, and vain, but it is not necessarily so. If it makes you feel better, and lifts up your spirits, why not using it?

Of course, it won’t change the situation, but it can be a great distraction, and even “help”, during the worst times.

I think it is easy to get all apathetic when it’s hard to see the reasons to keep going. But, when you make an effort and put on makeup, do your hair and nails, and spritz your favourite perfume – it makes a difference. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. After all, how can looking bad when you feel bad can help?

And… what are my “optimistic” shades of blush and lipstick. Definitely

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.

Givenchy Makeup Collection for Christmas 2013

Here is a preview of the new Givenchy’s Christmas 2013 makeup collection, a small but well edited festive release.

The star of the collection, quite literally, is  Ondulations D’Or Limited Edition Bronze Précieux (£38.50) which is a black and gold eye shadow palette.  You use each shade individually, or mix together to get a bronze shade. The packaging is a work of art, if you ask me. Black and gold is a classic, and a beautiful combo.

It’s all about the bronze for the eyes, when it comes to this collection. So the next step is Phenomen’Eyes Bronze Précieux (£22). But wait, there is even more! Lash Sparkles Limited Edition Or Précieux (£19) which is a golden top coat for lashes. Which, according to Nicolas Degennes, Givenchy Beauty’s Artistic Director, is a must-have from for Christmas.

As for the rest of the collection, there are
