If by slim chance you happened to have been struck by lighting or living under a rock and didn’t get a chance to order Givenchy’s newest blush you can safely set your lems to rest and run (really really really fast) as quickly as your little legs will carry you over to Sephora.com!
It appears the blush has been restocked and how long it remains available is anyone’s guess! But you can be sure the Muse ordered hers before she was shut out in the cold again yearning for a blush that’s been out of stock since first appearing on the site 3 weeks ago!
Aptly named Secret Blush because I didn’t even notice it was available for sale on Sephora.com!
This little gem is on my Wish List! I shall scour every nook and cranny of this city till I find it and make it mine!
Sometimes the lemming comes on me hard teehee!
Want it? Need it? Have to have it? Meh, I’ll pass?
Tell me My ears are open!
I’ve been shopping around for the newest Givenchy Eye Palette since eyeballing it on the Makeup Bag. I checked around a few places and never did come across it’s release so I just gave up and was hopeful come August I’d find it. And this weekend, I did indeed find it.
It’s not available online as far as I know or in a majority of shops but if you’re somewhere in the vicinity of a Saks Fifth Ave you can hop on over as they do now have it out and available for sale!
When I first seen the photo I was somewhat skeptical of the shades actually working for me. They seemed quite dank and dark, navy blue isn’t exactly my first choice for eye color! This one was one of those palettes I just generally wanted to add to my collection but possibly never use (why, yes, I am quite bonkers! So happy you noticed)!
When I walked into Saks I headed for the counter straight away, not because I was hopeful for the palette, but just out of sheer habit as it’s always the first counter I hit! Givenchy’s such a picky little cosmetic and it’s difficult to locate a store that sells it online and off so when I do waltz into Saks it’s normally to hit up the counter first thing prior to seeking out anything else! I think I might have been quite shocked that they even had it available, I was thinking somewhere at the end of August for this little guy! I was also vaguely surprised to see how truly workable and lovely the colors are! The pics I’ve seen don’t do it nearly enough justice!
The palette this time around has almost a black onyx inlay to the “G” logo on it’s cover! Pretty plain compared to prior palettes that I have but still elegant none the less! It’s of course the standard compact that has the applicators hidden on the bottom. This time around they have a little saying inscripted on the mirror which reads “Style for Life”…sigh…I love cute little touches like this, don’t you? Ah the colors…you want to know of the colors don’t you?
As I was saying the colors are quite workable this time around! Let’s see what we have…from top left to bottom right we have the following: sheer pink, black, creamy vanilla white, khaki brownish color, a truly gorgeous gold, navy blue shimmer (this was one I was worried about but it’s quite lovely), off white, indian brownish color, and a peachy nude!
All are matte except the middle three colors. Each of these three have a kiss of shimmer and sparkle to them! Overall I think you can create quite a nice eye look with these! Some colors appear a bit sheer and not entirely matching with the theme but with a little hard work and alot of imagination you can create a great fall look!
Givenchy never fails to put out an outstanding palette and I’m sorry I doubted this one! I’m quite pleased! This retails for $50 and is in stores now! I’m positive Sephora will have it shortly so keep your eyes peeled before it sales out! If you’re at all familiar with Givenchy palettes you do realize how quickly they become unavailable! It’s one of the few make-up lines that does disappear rather quickly!
What does one do when sadness beckons and sleep eludes them?
Blog about beauty of course!
The following entry is from a blog I did ages ago on Live Journal but I’ve revamped it for My Space! At the moment I am not feeling my normal self so I’m entitled to a mark up and edit of this very blog. It gives me something to do with my mind less it wander into my heart.
Givenchy. Ah the posh richness of Givenchy’s color collections! I guess I can rightly be called a newbie to Givenchy’s make-up line as I really only started collecting it this past fall. A friend brought me a blush as a gift and this started my downward spiral into the expensive habit of tracking down and purchasing new Givenchy palettes! Yes I do curse her everyday after!
Givenchy’s line is probably one of the only make-up lines I’ve seen sell out so quickly! It’s not sold in many places and it’s difficult to track down the items when they do finally pop up somewhere! I’m fool enough to call every Sephora from 42nd Street to Times Square trying to locate one palette! Online you say? Impossible! Sells out in a snap!
The spring line was probably my favorite thus far!
The Arty line is bright, bold, and colorful as all hell! I’d love to say that I have the entire collection but I somehow mustered up enough willpower to puchase the blush and the eye palette only! It seemed too ridiculous to actually spend all that kind of money on the entire line! Maybe when I win the lotto! I’ll whisper this really low but I also didn’t spend the money on it because I just felt I wasn’t in the same league as the collection! Hell you have to be drop dead, outstanding gorgeous to wear make-up this lovely and I’m not entirely in that catagory! (Jesus I hope no one important is reading this! I won’t mention any names but he’s likely going to bloody snuff me out for saying that I am not gorgeous! Lucky am I he thinks so ya? Ok ok ok back to the make-up).
Since fall I’ve come across some great palettes they have done but by far this has been the best of the lot!
If you have some spare change rattling around in your pockets and you really want to purchase something different, I highly recommend either the Arty Blush or the Arty Eye palette! Or both! Oh my! These are too amazing products that Givenchy has outdone themselves on!
My tiny lot from the Arty Color Collection:
Cheers to Givenchy! High hopes we see new, exciting colors come the winter!
It should take me till that time to find the newest palette released for the summer!
I’m off to put out signs in the neighborhood! “Have you seen this palette?” Reward offered for any information regarding its where abouts!
