Givenchy Gysophila Makeup Collection for Summer 2017

For Givenchy’s summer 2017 makeup collection Nicolas Degennes was inspired by gysophila  flowers.

The star of the collection is definitely the gorgeous  Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder in 02 Douce Saison (£44) which features the Gypsophila pattern and   adds glow to the complexion.   The formula is  crafted from a liquid gel, which evaporates when baked to leave only pigment behind, this is why the product, according to the brand, has a long-lasting finish and  a natural-looking and flattering colour.

Quite a few brands famous for mascaras launched  additions to their ranges, and we are talking about Lancome, YSL (The Shock) and Dior.  And I have reviewed at least one from each brand in the past…

I am also a huge fan of the Givenchy mascaras, so I am excited to see a new one from them, too.

“A super-volumizing squeezable mascara with a fully loaded brush for instant, extreme lash volume.  By pumping the soft tube, you’ll coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich mascara formula inside for a perfect, fresh application, every time”.

“A high-volume mascara that delivers bold lash volume for up to 24 hours. Features a large brush and an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto lashes like silk and delivers up to 12 times the volume with up to 24 hours of wear”.
