Givenchy Blooming Fall 2010 Makeup

Inspired by the colorful works of filmmaker and painter Takagi Masakatsu, Givenchy's Fall 2010 Blooming makeup is dominated by lively hues of pink, orange and red. In an effort to resist the colder seasons, the brand's Fall colors represent a fresh and youthful rebirth of typical summer shades.

Two new Le Prisme Visage Blooming translucent powders are available in Blooming Pinks and Blooming Apricots. The former has subtle hints of peachy pink for pale to light-medium complexions while the later contains light dashes of orange. The formula goes on so smoothly for a natural silky finish. I also adore the fun origami-style packaging - it's like opening a special present.

The other star product, Le Prisme Blush in Blooming Fuchsias, is meant to re-create a lively floral bloom for the cheeks. It's very pigmented, so I need to use a lighter touch or blend it with a highlighting powder/bronzer. It's more ideal for someone with a darker skin tone.


There are six new Le Prisme Yeux - Quatuor eye color palettes. The 71 Purple Show quad contains shades of mauve, brown-purple, light pink and sheer gold. You can easily take these colors for a day to night transformation. The 72 Midnight Look is by far my favorite for a polished purple-grey smoky eye - just gorgeous. The image below is a bit misleading because the colors are not as dark in reality. The small 'clap and slide' square compact is also genius - the lower chamber slides out to reveal three small brushes.

Givenchy's lipsticks are decidedly orange for Fall. The Rouge Interdit Shine lipstick in 26 Blooming Apricot is a sheer wash of delicate orange-pink. I like it a lot since I don't usually wear this color and this one suits me well. The shimmery pearly flecks also add a subtle yet sexy twist to your smile.

Another exciting new launch from the brand is the Mister Lash Booster serum. It's supposed improve lash volume, curve and length with daily use. That in itself is a plus since I rub my eyes a lot. The slanted applicator bristles massage the product right into the lash line to maximize efficacy. You can also use this as a clear mascara as it works 24 hours (if you use it day and night). During an eight-week clinical trial, eyelash volume reportedly increased 96% while eyelash curve went up 50%.

The entire Blooming Fall 2010 collection and Mister Lash Booster are all available at Sephora, and
