From, the moment I saw the Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Eyeshadow Palette I had to have it. First, the Palette had me at Red. What comes to your mind when you see red? For one thing, Red is exciting! Also, , Red can be impulsive! And, Red is assertive. For example, Red, like in red lipstick, makes me feel confident, strong and powerful. Finally, red makes me think of the Holidays!! Therefore, the Limited Edition Givenchy Red Holiday Eyeshadow Palette is festive! Moreover, the palette has 12 gorgeous shades in matte and sparkly finishes. As a result, this is a multi-use eyeshadow palette. On the one hand, you’ll be able to create exciting sparkly looks for the holidays. On the other hand, you can choose to create a neutral, matte look for everyday.
The Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Palette Packaging
First of all, the limited edition, Red Edition’s Holiday packaging, is all that and more! The eyeshadow’s outer box is …. Red! Need I say more? O.K., I will. And, the eyeshadow compact has 4 G’s which is the Givenchy Logo. Additionally, the G’s Logo is embellished with bright red sparkles.
Inside, the palette has 12 eyeshadows, in groups of 4, form three eyeshadow “quads.” Also, the center “quad” has the most sparkly shades. And, the Quads on either side look like flat-topped pyramids. I really love the way the shadows look in their pans. They look multi-dimensional!
Also, the palette has a large mirror. Finally, the palette comes with a double-ended eyeshadow brush. Therefore, the Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Palette is travel worthy! Also, the palette is so beautiful, I think it would make a great gift for someone who appreciates fun, sophisticated makeup!
The Formula For The Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Palette
To begin with the shades have strong pigments. The formula is a powder, that goes on like a cream. Although, there is some fallout, and kick back with these shadows. Also, the shadows have matte and sparkle finishes. Furthermore, the shadows are easy to blend, and layer. Finally, the shadows are long-lasting.
The Shades In The Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Palette
To start with, I have broken down the shades, as they are in the palette, into three quads.
The Quad To The Left
The Quad In The Middle
The Quad On The Right
The Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Eyeshadow Palette………Last But Not Least
For one thing, I have always considered Givenchy to be right up there with the big guys. First of all, it is a French Brand, and my mom always told me, if it’s french, it’s good! Also, some of the newer brands out today have colors that would only look good if you’re very, very young. Or, if you are a Drag Queen. However, Chanel, and Givenchy have more sophisticated palettes, with shades that you can really wear. And, they make it really easy for us to create our own, customized makeup looks. Also, they are not overwhelming us with tons of shades in one palette. In fact, I think 12 is a lot. However, Givenchy fixed that by breaking them down into quads. I also love the packaging. It is so festive! And So Red!!!!
Finally, for the more sophisticated makeup lover in your life, the Givenchy Red Edition Holiday Eyeshadow Palette would make an amazing gift. I realize it is really expensive. So, whom ever you gift this baby to, it better be someone really, really special!
