Many years ago Givenchy Beauty came to our Saks Fifth Avenue in Philadelphia’s suburb of Bala Cynwyd. We were really lucky because Elyssa, who worked for YSL at the time, took over the Givenchy Beauty counter.
Elyssa has been, and still is my, and everyone else’s, go-to guru at Saks (for over twenty-five years)- and I”ll tell you a secret, she is a genius when it comes to anything makeup! Whatever Elyssa decides makeup-wise, trust me, IS the holy grail of makeup for us in Philadelphia! So while Saks carried Givenchy Cosmetics Elyssa was all about the brand. And her disciples began adding Givenchy to their makeup bags. Unfortunately, Givenchy Beauty is no longer sold in our Saks, nor is it in our Neiman Marcus.
When Sephora finally came to Philadelphia (it was already in the “big” cities such as New York and Washington D.C.), guess what? They carried Givenchy Beauty. Once again Givenchy was in the running to be one of my “gotta have its”.
I purchased the Givenchy Muted Eye Shadow Palette Limited Edition for Spring/Summer 2016 ($59) from Sephora’s website. I like the four colors in the Palette and I thought mixing three matte shadows with a metallic would make for some interesting and creative spring/summer looks.
Givenchy Eye Shadow Palettes are infused with elegance and luxury. The Muted Eye Palette has four specially selected shades that can be used in a variety of ways. The top left color is a medium-dark matte charcoal, next to the right is a coco medium-dark matte shadow, on the bottom left is a nude-caramel matte, and the surprise color is a sequined pink metallic. You can really express yourself- mix them up and create some interesting looks!
The formula is velvety smooth. It makes applying the shadows a breeze. And the best part is… the shadows stay on for a long time!
I really love the couture inspired case! It is a gorgeous compact.
If you want to infuse some luxury and elegance into your mixed bag of makeup goodies all of the Givenchy Palettes are stunning.
P.S. If you’re ever at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd,PA, stop by and visit our Elyssa!
Hope you have an amazing Mother’s Day because you deserve it!
You Are Awesome!
