Givenchy’s new ‘HÔTEL PRIVÉ make up collection for Spring/Summer 2013 was described as “a collection that conveys a subtle, natural elegance. Colours that express gentle pleasure and cosy intimacy. Textures that are easy to use, the very definition of refined, low-key luxury” by Nicolas Degennes, Givenchy’s International Artistic Director.
The entire collection includes:
• ÉCRIN PRIVÉ Limited Edition Eye shadows in taupe, grey, natural beige and rose milk pink
• ROUGE INTERDIT Limited Edition in 59 Private Peach
• GLOSS INTERDIT Limited Edition lip gloss in 35 Private Rose and 36 Private Fuchsia
• VERNIS PLEASE! Limited Editions nail polish in 183 Private Grey and 184 Private Taupe
I was lucky enough to try the ROUGE INTERDIT Limited Edition lipstick in 59 Private Peach and the Limited Editions nail polish in 184 Private Taupe.
I had reservation about the lipstick as I thought it might be too light for me but it is a lovely nude/beige pink that I think will suit a variety of skin tones. It is lovely to wear, smells great and has good staying power.
I received quite a few compliments wearing the nail polish. It appears somewhat nude against my skin (do I have taupe undertones?) and the colour is quite rich so you can get away with just one coat.
I love the two products I did try and now I can’t wait to get my hands on the eye shadow palette and the nail polish in Private Grey.
The HÔTEL PRIVÉ collection will be available from January 21st.
