Givenchy Rose Dentelle (3) Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow
These are the last of the Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) shades I have to review! You can check out previously reviewed shades here. 🙂 The brand describes them as “creamy, waterproof, [and] long-lasting.” It’s a cream-to-powder formula, so it feels like a cream initially but dries down to a powder finish. Givenchy actually states that this lasts for 16 hours, which is quite a tall order and one that I haven’t found any shade to live up to (or even last close to that).
Givenchy Rose Dentelle (3) Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as an “old pink.” It’s a muted, rosy pink with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that could be applied opaque in a single layer or sheered out for a softer look. This shade was creamy but quick to dry down, so I would recommend working one eye at a time to ensure blendability throughout application. On me, this shade wore well for twelve hours before creasing. bareMinerals Velvet Mauve (P, $14.00) is slightly warmer, powder. LORAC Mauve (P) is cooler-toned, powder. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #5 (LE) is more shimmery, cooler-toned, powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Givenchy Prune Taffetas (8) Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “plum.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned plum with a pink base and a soft, pearly shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it took two to three layers (you could get away with almost two if you went heavy) to get more opaque coverage. The consistency was lightly creamy, dried down to a powder finish, and lasted for almost twelve hours before creasing. theBalm #2 (P, $6.50) is a powder product. MAC Pinkluxe #3 (P) is more metallic, powder. MAC Pink Union #1 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, more muted, powder. MAC Luxury Touch (LE, $16.50) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
