Givenchy | Summer 2019 Solar Pulse Collection: Review and Swatches
It's a little late in the season but I've recently received the colorful Givenchy Summer 2019 Solar Pulse Collection to test out. An ode to the sun, the limited edition seven-piece range focuses on two colors of summer: orange and blue. I've got reviews and swatches to share with you today. To read on, click......

Givenchy | Summer 2019 Healthy Glow Powder Marbled Edition ($68 CAD for 10 g):
Available in two shades, the Healthy Glow Powder Marbled Edition is a subtle bronzing highlighter with a silky, baked texture. "2.5 Naturel Rosé" consists of swirls of pink champagne shimmer and soft bronze shimmer while "4.5 Naturel Doré" has swirls of satin dark bronze and shimmery gold. Both shades are quite subtle and apply a lot lighter than they appear in the pan so they are more highlighting than they are bronzing.

The formulation is sheer but I love how the shimmers are subtle, providing a lovely sheen that's not sparkly or over the top. My personal favorite is "2.5 Naturel Rosé", which is a beautiful pink champagne that gives lighter skin tones a very natural and flattering glow.

Givenchy |  Summer 2019 Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner ($32 CAD for 0.28 g):
The Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner features a creamy formulation that glides smoothly on the lids and sets to a smudge-proof and waterproof finish. "09 Tangerine" is a shimmery bright orange and "10 Azur" is a shimmery aqua blue. Both shades are super pigmented and opaque in one swipe.

Givenchy | Summer 2019 Gloss Interdit Vinyl in "14 Solar Orange" & "15 Vibrant Blue"
Givenchy | Summer 2019 Gloss Interdit Vinyl ($37 CAD for 6 ml):
Two new limited edition Gloss Interdit Vinyl shades are introduced as a part of the Summer 2019 Collection. "14 Solar Orange" is a semi-sheer popsicle orange and "15 Vibrant Blue" is an iridescent sheer blue shimmer suspended in a clear lipgloss base. The glosses are packaged in a luxurious clear and black acrylic tube paired with a "G" shaped (for Givenchy) doe-foot applicator.

The Gloss Interdit Vinyl formulation is lightweight, gel-like, and non-sticky. The finish is super shiny and the gloss feels hydrating and cushiony. "14 Solar Orange" is a fun shade that stands out on its own while "15 Vibrant Blue" looks better over a bright pink or berry base.

Givenchy | Summer 2019 Le Vernis in "14 Vivid Orange" ($30 CAD for 10 ml):
This is a hot and juicy bright orange nail polish. The formulation is very pigmented and creamy but the finish is just a touch streaky. There was a bit of bubbling as well but that's avoidable as long as you let the first layer dry completely. I used two coats for the swatches below but you can technically get away with just one.
