Givenchy Launches Online Campaign to Create a Customized Makeup Compact with Brickfish
SAN DIEGO, CA (May 6, 2008) — Givenchy, the luxury fashion and beauty brand, and Brickfish, the social media advertising platform, today announced the “Prisme Foundation” campaign located at http://www.brickfish.com/fashion/GivenchyPrisme. This campaign invites beauty enthusiasts to create a sassy slogan for Givenchy’s iconic Prisme Foundation Compact, a bestseller from their luxurious Le Makeup collection. Created slogans will be imprinted in the powder online giving a true-to-life look at what the finished product will look like. The grand prize winner, chosen by Givenchy’s expert panel, will receive a production piece of his or her customized Prisme Foundation compact, ten extras to share with friends, and a year’s supply of Givenchy products, worth $3,000, including early access to new collections.
“Makeup is a distinct and personal form of expression, and we created this campaign to give consumers a new way to personalize their makeup like never before,” said Linda Maiocco, Vice President of Marketing for Parfums Givenchy. “We are thrilled for the opportunity to see how consumers interpret Givenchy’s Le Make Up collection, and look forward to learning how many consumers create, promote and share the variety of slogan concepts.”
The grand prize winner, as well as the five highest scoring participants and the five top influencers whose creations become the most viral, will win $500 worth of Givenchy products.
Now I’m not very creative, so sloganizing is not my trade, but hey, $3,000 in Givenchy products? I’m so there! Early access? Yes, please!
Dior’s Goldfever Quint | I love Dior quints for their versatility and how the colors pair so well together. I’m a sucker for golds, so this quint is especially (well, hell, the whole collection) to my taste. Subtle summer shimmers will work well for easy day time looks and even for subdued evening eyes. The gray-mauve and berry-mauve are both deep and dark enough to work as crease colors or to create smoky eyes. My only complaint is that the level of frost in the finish is a bit high to be universally appealing–I’m okay with it, but I do find that sometimes I’ll opt to use a different color (not from the quint) for highlighting my brow.

Givenchy’s Prismissime Mat & Glow in Harmony #72 | A small compact palette in checkboard style that features nine squares of color. The first and third columns are matte colors, while the second column consists of shimmery choices. For summer, Givenchy offers Harmony #71 for fairer complexions, while #72 is for warmer/tanner complexions (like mine). I like that they’re separated, because it gives you the opportunity to use them alone, rather than together, but because they are also close together, you could also gently sweep a blush brush over it for an all-over color. The palette can be used on eyes, cheeks, face, or even your decolletage, making it very versatile and multi-tasking. This gives me a nice light bronze on cheeks, and the shimmer lets me highilght cheekbones precisely or lighten up a deeper summer bronze.

When you wear your jeans, you wear your own legend. The legend of jeans was built by those who have worn them — everyone from cowboys, Indians and gold miners to Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, John Wayne, Marlon Brando, Brigitte Bardot and the Rolling Stones — not to mention Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and so many others. Jeans may be a uniform, but they are unique on everyone!
These trousers made of denim that all of us eternal adolescents try to get into year after year are more than just a garment; they are an accessory that lets us feel at ease and change our look quickly. What if the 15 minutes of fame Warhol promised all of us were right there on our legs? What could be more flattering and essential to us than our favourite jeans, no matter what the style or label? They not only cover our bodies, but also reveal our fantasies when they are embroidered, patched, bleached, dyed or customised to create something unique.
Denim can be streetwise, chic, basic, sophisticated, masculine, sexy and more. This symbol of rebellion gets you moving — to its own beat. For the spring-summer 2008 Givenchy Le Makeup collection, I wanted to pay homage to this companion that has the elegance to age along with us, this paradoxical fabric that, even though it has been elevated to “Couture” status, remains faithful to us and helps us express ourselves. It is the ultimate “made-to-measure” product, since it adapts to every figure. Like the pioneers of the Wild West or elegant Parisians, your days and nights will be filled with the spirit of DENIM FETICHE.
