Givenchy Makeup has become “An old dog with new tricks!” In other words, recently, Givenchy came out with four new eyeshadow palettes; Le 9 De Givenchy. Furthermore, these palettes have a new concept. Even more, the shadows have a new formula. Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palettes, come from one of the great French fashion houses, Maison De Givenchy (the House of Givenchy). As a result, these palettes are all about ” Couture”. Finally, the Le 9 Eyeshadow inspiration came from the House of Givenchy’s Spring/Summer, Fall/ Winter Couture Fashion Shows.
Each palette has nine shades. However, this is not your usual multi-shade palette. Instead, what makes the Le 9 De Givenchy Palettes different is the concept. To explain, the concept is each is a palette of neutral tones mixed with pops of color, centered around one unique shade. Furthermore, the shades come in four different textures: matte; satin; metallic; and glitter.
Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palette Packaging
To begin with, even the packaging is Couture! For one thing, the luxurious, black lacquered compact, is stamped, in silver, with the Maison Givenchy Couture Signature. Furthermore, to open the palette, push the silver prism button, and lift up the lid. To close, push the lid down until you hear it snap closed.
Inside the palette, there is a large mirror. Also, there are nine eyeshadow pans. The eyeshadows are shaped with the signature Givenchy Eyeshadow Prisms.
Finally, the palette comes with a dual-ended eyeshadow brush. On one end, you lay down the powder. The other end, you blend the powder. I love that the brush comes in two seperate parts. Therefore, you need to attach the two, in the center, to create one large brush. I think it is so much better to have a larger brush, than, let’s say, those tiny Chanel brushes that you can’t do much with!
The Formula For Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palette
First, the formula includes 9 homogeneous, ultra-pigmented shades. Furthermore, I don’t think I’ve ever felt a formula that was silkier, and softer than this one! Also, the shades have good color payoff. You can create soft looks for daytime, and bold looks for night time wear. The shades are easy to blend, and easy to build. Even more, I barely had powdery fallout. The formula is easy to blend. Also, the shades are easy to build. Finally, these shades are easy to apply. You can use a brush, or your finger to apply the shadows.
The Shades in the Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palettes
There are four different palettes in the Le 9 De Givenchy Collection. I purchased three of them. Furthermore, the Palettes don’t have names. Instead, they are numbered, 9.01, 9.02, 9.04, and 9.05. Palette 9.02 is a limited edition. I haven’t been able to find one. Furthermore, the shades are not named. On back of the outer box, you see the shades, and their textures.
Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palette 9.01
The first palette, 9.01, is basically neutral shade, brown and beige, and a signature metallic orange shade. This orange shade is a nod to the Maison Givenchy 2020 Spring/Summer Fashion Show.

Next, palette 9.04, has cool. grey and pink tone shades. In addition, the palette focus is a deep cobalt purple shade. Furthermore, this palette was a tribute to the Maison Givenchy 2019 Fall/Winter Fashion Show.
Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palette 9.05
Finally, palette 9.05, has rustic browns and copper tone shades. Even more, the palette focus is around a rich Bordeaux shade recognizes the importance and influence of true Couture.
My Final Thoughts On The Le 9 De Givenchy Couture Eyeshadow Palettes……
First, I really like the concept of the new Givenchy Couture Palettes. Instead of the palettes being a bunch of neutrals, they actually tell a story. And, the story is about true Couture, and how it makes an eyeshadow palette Couture. The palettes are filled with different neutrals.
For the purpose of the story, these beige and browns , greys and pinks, and rustic browns and copper tones are the supporting players. However, and I’m in love with this idea, the neutral shades support the star . Above all, the star of the palette is the “couture color.” which is the pop of color. Together, the nine shades can make beautiful neutral looks. In fact, the neutrals are beautiful. Although, what makes each palette ” Couture!” is when you combine the star shade, which is the couture shade, with the supporting players, Therefore, the story the palettes tell is what makes the eyeshadow ppalettes so special. Also, the formula is beautiful. And, the shades themselves and their textures are beautiful. So, I’m a fan!
