Givenchy Gets In The Holiday Spirit-------
As the holiday beauty launches continue to flood my desk, I’ve designated a special place for the products I find most alluring. To the right of my computer and at arm’s length, should I want to sample from it, is Givenchy’s Vintage Christmas collection. According to the French brand’s artistic director of makeup, Nicolas Degennes, the six-piece limited-edition line is intended to evoke “a Christmas tale revisited.” As such, it includes a spectacular opaque shade of Givenchy’s Gloss Interdit in #27 Vintage Ruby, a brick red shade of Vernis Please! Nail Lacquer in #127 Vintage Garnet, and a new Le Prisme Unique Eyeshadow in Vintage Silver. The press release promises the first will simulate “lips that leave their imprint on the blushing cheeks of excitement”; and the others will help to usher in a “reassuring moment of benevolent nostalgia” while embodying “the present with its door open to the future.” Whatever. These three items are simply gorgeous additions to the seasonal makeup arsenal you’ll want to have at the ready for the mulled wine-fueled merrymaking that’s right around the corner.
