Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Collection: Review and Swatches
Givenchy has some great items this year with their Holiday 2021 Collection. The brand is well known for its Prisme Libre powders and we are getting a new spin on the concept with a highlighter version, alongside a new fragrance and two lipsticks. I've got reviews and swatches of everything to share with you today. To read on, click......
Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Prisme Libre Highlighter: Review and Swatches

Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Prisme Libre Highlighter (C$55 for 6 g):
Housed in a sifter jar smaller than that of the iconic Prisme Libre translucent powder, the Prisme Libre Highlighter is a loose powder highlighter with a silky, finely-milled formulation. The shade "10 Organza Or" is a combination of golden pink and warm gold shimmer that combine to form a warm golden champagne that's not sparkly or gaudy. The formulation has a good, pigmented coverage but this is definitely a more subtle highlighter that provides a sophisticated glow.

Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Le Rouge Lipstick: Review and Swatches
Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Le Rouge Deep Velvet Lipstick & Le Rouge Lipstick
Givenchy | Holiday 2021 Le Rouge Lipstick (C$49 for 3.4 g):
Givenchy has two limited-edition lipsticks for the Holiday 2021 season. The first is a Le Rouge Lipstick in "501 Copper Nude". Packaged in a black velvet and shiny gold packaging, this is a rosy brown nude with fine gold shimmers. The formulation has a natural satin finish and it's super pigmented and nourishing on the lips.
Also packaged in the glam gold and black velvet packaging, the Le Rouge Deep Velvet Lipstick in "37 Rouge Grainé" is a stunning deep red with a blue undertone. This is not a new shade (it was also released in a limited edition packaging last holiday season) but it's such a stunning color, perfect for the holiday season. The formulation is super pigmented and creamy and the finish has a modern matte finish.

Givenchy L'Interdit Rouge Eau de Parfum: Review

Givenchy | L'Interdit Rouge Eau de Parfum (C$125 for 50 ml):
Housed in a deep red version of the original L'Interdit bottle, this is a new take on the L'Interdit fragrance boasting notes of orange blossom, tuberose, and sandalwood. While the original L'Interdit was a light, white floral, L'Interdit Rouge is much warmer and sweeter. Opening on a refreshing combination of citrus and spice, the fragrance has a strong floral core of jasmine and tuberose. The florals are boosted by the warm base notes, rounding out the fragrance for a full-bodied scent. In my opinion, L'Interdit Rouge is a pretty sharp detour from the original but if you are looking for a sweet, warm floral perfect for the fall and winter months, this is a great choice!  

Top Notes: Blood Orange, Ginger
Heart Notes: Tuberose, Jasmine
Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver
