MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Believe it or not, but we will start seeing Spring 2013 makeup collections in December/January which is not that far away so  maybe it’s time to take a look at some of the them?

Today I want to show you Givenchy’s  Hotel Privé collection which, according to Nicolas Degennes (International Artistic Director) is a collection that “conveys a subtle, natural elegance. Colours that express gentle pleasure and cosy intimacy. Textures that are easy to use. The very definition of refined, low-key luxury.”

The inspiration for this collection were the various French hotels Mr Degennes stayed in, their atmosphere, colours, materials, the feeling of comfort they give.

The products are:

ÉCRIN PRIVÉ Eyeshadows, £46

This palette looks very luxurious, although I personally do love the signature prism design of the brand. There are three (mica free) mattes shades:  taupe, grey and natural beige. The fourth shade is a  iridescent rose milk pink highlighter.

ROUGE INTERDIT, £21

  • N° 59 Private Peach,

I am sorry, did not have time to schedule any posts (and had a very busy week), although  there are so many things I want to tell you about.

Here are some of my newest products, so expect to see reviews soon.

And today I have finally bought OPI’s Every Month in Oktoberfest!  It is such a gorgeous shade, can’t wait to paint my nails with it.

And what is the latest beauty product you’ve  got?

Givenchy Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

I already wrote about the new Givenchy glosses which I swatched at the counter and really liked. I personally plan to one for myself in the future.

But besides the glosses this collection  also includes a Vernis Please! Nail Lacquer in 175 Acid Orange, Phenomen’Eyes Mascara in Acid Blue,  Mister Radiant which contains the micro-beads which give your complexion a healthy glow, and the most exciting product - Le Prismissime 9-Colors Eyeshadow.

This palette which is inspired by neon lights “has a surprising range of bold colors: flashy matte shades of blue, purple and green, punctuated by mother-of-pearl-inflected brown, orange, yellow, green, blue, and white emphasizing neon glints.”

I wasn’t really excited about this palette until I saw this post. It’s in Russian but if you click the Givenchy tag you can see several amazing makeup looks with this palette. I highly recommend you checking out that link. I  think  the girl did a wonderful job!
