Givenchy Parad’Eyes Fluid Eye Liner Poetique Lavender Review and Swatches

So the Muse is busy trying to take on liquid liner again. She hasn’t perfected her technique yet but she’s trying hard. In my bid to become a pro liquid liner I’m testing out the new Givenchy Parad’Eyes Fluid Eye Liner. I’m thinking in order to perfect the perfect cat eye I need expensive, posh, $27 dollar liquid liner. What better one to give a whirl than Givenchy’s? Right?

Givenchy Les Poetiques: Poetique Camelia and Poetique Iris Review and Swatches


Givenchy’s Fall Collection is proving to be one of my favorites this season. I’m delighted with the brand new shades of lipstick introduced which are soft, romantic shades that enhance my own natural lip color.

Click ahead to hear the review and see the swatches!

Two brand new shades of limited edition lippies compliment the Givenchy Les Poetiques Fall Collection. Each shade introduced is in a different Givenchy lipstick formula. Both shades are soft, natural shades which compliment the palettes introduced with this collection.


The first shade Poetique Camelia is in the Givenchy Rouge Interdit Shine Lipstick format. This is a soft peach pink with a shimmer finish. The formula if Interdit Shine is moist, sheer, and glossy.


The other shade introduced, Poetique Iris, is available in the Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick format. This shade is a light pink much liked Urban Decay Naked but with a deeper hint of mauve. Satin is considerably easier to apply than Shine and the formula is beautifully glossy and rich. It’s a subtle, sheer color that enhances the look of my naturally pink lips.


Overall, each shade is better than the next and worthy of a pick up as they combine beautifully well with the softer shades of the Les Poetiques Prismissime Eyes for a full on romantic look for Fall!

Beautiful!

Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Blues and Poetique Browns Review and Swatches


Givenchy took a delightfully different road for their Fall Collection eye look. Where as the rest of the world is going bold, Givenchy’s look for Fall is a soft, romantic look with a range of delicious little shades to spark up your eyes with an ethereal glow.

Jump ahead for a peep and swatches of the new Givenchy Prismissime Eyes in Poetique Blues and Poetique Browns!


Packed inside each of the new Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Eyeshadow palettes are a range of nine gorgeous shades to create any number of softly focused eye looks.

Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Blues is packed with rich, sparkling jewel shades ranging from purple, to blue, and pink. Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Browns is a richer range of golds, browns, bronzes, and creams.


The friendliest palette for Fall would be Poetique Browns as it’s considerably warmer in color than Poetique Blues. If it’s a cooler look you fancy, Poetique Blues is an ideal selection.

As with most Givenchy Prismissime this aren’t heavily pigmented eye shadows. They give just a touch of shimmering shadow to eyes for a very soft look but can be built up in intensity depending on the shades used. I felt like the browns were considerably more pigmented than the blues. The browns definitely hold a special place in my heart for Fall and I imagine when the brisker weather sets in the blues will top my list.

Each palette has the typical stealthy little hidden compartment beneath which houses two sponge applicators and a brush. Some do find these a tad useless as they are so itty bitty in size however I think they are actually ideal for picking up just the right amount of color from each tiny square eye shadow and applying to the lid.

Overall, both are wonderful color combos and worthy of a pick up for true Givenchy fans. The browns are particularly a great collection. I’m quite pleased with both and ever so happy to have a new Prismissime to play with as it’s been too long inbetween eye Prismissimes for me!

A happy Muse Approval for purchase!

I’ll be bringing you looks using each palette shortly.
