Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal Rose by Night Review, Swatches, and FOTD

I’m kinda still on my bubblegum pink gloss craze! Remember when I was all about shades of bubblegum pink?

With Givenchy Holiday 2008 they introduced thee most gorgeous shade of pink and the Muse had to have it to add to her array of pink glosses! Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal in Rose by Night is a sheer, shimmering pink shade sure to suit your cooler Holiday looks this season! The beautiful rosy shade has a healthy dose of shimmering gold and pink with a nice base pink shade that’s pretty much pigmented to wear on it’s own or over your favorite lipstick. Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal has just the right amount of tack so your gloss lasts for quite a while between touch ups. As for the packaging it’s done in the new fireworks theme for the Givenchy Holiday Collection 2008. Pretty!

Givenchy Holiday 2008: Givenchy Prisme Again! Blush Quartet in Glowing Rose Review, Swatches, & FOTD

Glow on darlin‘! Glow on!

If you’re looking for that perfect combination of blush and highlighter let me introduce you to Givenchy Prisme Again! Blush Quartet in Glowing Rose. I have several of Givenchy’s Blush Quartet compacts and I have to say that Glowing Rose is probably my favorite. The colors all work well to together to give your cheeks a pop of frosty, flushed color!

Picture+085

The quartet is made up of four shades of color. The primary colors are pink and coral and the highlighting shades are a light pink and rose. I noticed that the two main colors have a matte finish where as the two lighter shades have a frosty, shimmer finish. You can apply by sweeping your brush in all four shades and brushing onto the apples of cheeks this produces a soft rosy glow. By concentrating your brush on the darker pink and coral and applying you’ll end up with a deeper flush to cheeks which you can highlight by using the lighter shades on the cheek bone and contours of the face. The Muse isn’t the skinniest girl around these parts so she was a tad worried at the frosty finish as frosts lends a pound to my already full face. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how very nice and fresh the product looks on. I find it easier and best to simply swirl my brush in all four shades and apply to my chubby cheeks but as I mentioned you can get technical with the shades by applying different colors to different parts of the face.

I did a few photos for you displaying the blush in different ways as you can get a feel for how it works.

In this photo I’m wearing just the two darkest shades. As you can see without the highlighter the colors are more matte without as much of the shimmery frost finish that the lighter shades lend to my look!

In this photo I applied the light shades on top of the darker shades. See how the two lighter shades morphed the darker ones to create a lighter flush?

Off topic of Givenchy but in case you’re curious I am wearing the Skin79 Gold Label BB Cream that I reviewed earlier this week. Considering that I took a photo wearing no makeup when I reviewed the cream I thought you’d like to take note that this is how it looks with a bit of blusher! When I originally reviewed I did mention the cream causes an unnatural look to the skin but after makeup application the color blended flawlessly with my skin. And as you can see above, with a bit of blush, the color is perfection!

This particular Givenchy Prisme Again! Blush Quartet is part of the Givenchy Holiday Collection 2009 so it’s design is extra special. The compact has a new fireworks (although the Muse thinks the fireworks look like little snowflakes!) motif on a purple background. The compact has the standard Givenchy dual flip compact design which has the blush on top and a nifty little compartment beneath for the brush. Normally I love the brushes that come with Givenchy products however I prefer using a bigger, fluffier brush for application of Glowing Rose as it worked better at blending the blush on my cheeks! The brush is nice and soft with standard square head.

On a side note I think it deserves to be mentioned that Givenchy has recently been cutting the cost of products here and there. Such products as the new Givenchy Couture Palette and Givenchy Mister Bright have all seen a drastic dip in prices. I think we should all celebrate the fact that Givenchy is making luxe beauty more affordable during an economic slump. Bravo!

If you’re looking for that perfect holiday glow the Muse recommends checking out the new Givenchy Blush Qartet in Glowing Rose! It’s a winner for me and Muse Approved for purchase!

Givenchy Mister Bright Review & Swatches

The Muse thinks that sometimes the saying “as you get older you get better” isn’t always necessarily true.

For example the Muse thinks that as Bruce Campbell gets older he fails to get better in a major way! Now if I was Bruce I’d have left the industry when I was still the cult horror God of The Evil Dead Series….but ado…a 100 lbs later and Bruce feels the need to continue trying to recapture his youth by appearing in bad budget films that never quite get it right.

250px Bruce Campbell Army of Darkness

Now the Muse can go on and on about epic fails in the movie industry but she won’t bore you with the details. The moral of this story is the Muse knows that she doesn’t always get better as she gets older and sometimes she needs a little bit of help making herself better.

In this case the Muse needs a tiny bit of help with her under eye woes…a bit of brightening, a little lightening up….in this case she whips out her trusty Givenchy Mister Bright Touch of Light Pen! A click and a swipe and my eyes are looking more awake, well rested, and bright eyed and busy tailed!

Now Mister Bright has a great knack for being a multitasking demon! He works as a great highlighter on cheeks, sides of nose, or anywhere you want to add a bit of light! He highlights and contours your face beautifully with a pink pearl luminance! He can also be used to highlight your brow bone or a dab or two on your lids and on the inner and outer corner of the eyes to create the illusion of 8 hours of sleep when you only had 4!

Mister Bright comes packaged in a click pen! Dontcha just love click pens? The Muse does! One click should be plenty of product to do your entire face as you’re not going to want to use a heap of this since it does contain a healthy amount of shimmer. The formula is a thick pink cream which blends effortlessly. If you’ve ever tried Benefit Eye Bright Pencil this is virtually the same concept but in a liquid form plus it works much better! You can use Mister Bright under your eyes as well but do be careful! Only a dab for under the eyes as you’re not wanting to get insane shimmer overload by dabbing a whole lot. Remember, Mister Bright isn’t a concealer but a highlighter so use him to brighten up your dull complexion and wake up your tired eyes but don’t expect him to conceal major problems! If you’re wanting to get the most out of the product you can also use it as an all over color wash on your lid and eye area as a cream eyeshadow! The effect is a illuminating pearl pink wash of color that lights up the eyes and gives an angelic look to the face!

The Muse likes Givenchy Mister Bright so much she’s Muse Approving it for purchase! At $31.50 USD he doesn’t break the bank either considering a little goes a long way plus anything that helps me get better as I get older is always in fashion with the Muse! The Muse sure does think Givenchy Mister Bright Touch of Light Pen does the trick at creating the illusion of perfection.

I was considering purchasing the palette during Sephora Friends and Family (which has been extended till today by the way! yay!) and this just seals the deal as the price is quite nice now!
