Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Makeup Collection for Spring 2016

Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 makeup collection is exactly what we all need in January. Gorgeous highlighter, and refreshing pink for lips, nails and cheeks. There are also a brown eye liner, grey mascara and colourful eye shadows.

toupee ukThe star of the collection is definitely the uber gorgeous illuminator Poudre Lumiere Originelle (£41.50), an enhancing powder for an imperceptible, soft focus finish. It is a light pink highlighter  that leaves the skin radiant and luminous.  Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season.

There is also a new shade of the cult  Le Prisme Blush (£32) in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.

I love the idea of the brand’s  Mister Scrub (£22 ) which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and  Mister Gentlebalm (£22) which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.

The nail polish in this collection is the pastel pink Le Vernis (£17)  in 29 Rose Divin

As for the eye products:
