Givenchy Lune Mysterieuse Les Ombres de Lune

Givenchy Fall 2011: Lune Mysterieuse Les Ombres de Lune

Givenchy Lune Mysterieuse Les Ombres de Lune ($58.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a two-in-one product that includes an illuminating powder (for cheeks and eyes) and “intense eyeshadow.” Mysterieuse is described as a “black moon in a creamy white sky.”

The moon-shaped shade is a smoky, gray-black with multicolored shimmer and a pearled sheen. It has good color payoff, but the color itself is more muted than it appears in the pan–there is a very soft, dusted quality to it and the way the shimmer plays with the color makes it almost seem tinged with purple. The color reminded me of theBalm Feisty Felicia.

The “sky” is a creamy white–it’s warm but still white, with a shimmer-sheen. It has a lovely buttery texture that’s dense and luxurious–very blendable and soft. It’s similar to theBalm’s Envious Erin. As a cheek highlighter, it reminded me of MAC Too Chic, which has more of a peach color.

Givenchy did an outstanding job on the packaging–the outer packaging reflects what you should expect to see inside, while the product itself is practical in size so that both sections can be used as intended. There is a pull-out drawer with three sponge-tipped applicators, and while they’re softer than super cheap sponge-tipped applicators, they aren’t noteworthy. I’d rather them omit those and make the compact even slimmer. Inside the compact is also a mirror.

B+
It's well-done and seems thoughtful, but I expect that, for many, the two shades will wind up too dupeable to merit plunking down the $58.

    The packaging with the compartments is a cute gimmick but how long before the white part is contaminated with black dust?

    Wow, that white looked like it was cream colored to me in the pan.

  3. I’ll pass. Unique packaging does not equate a duplicable product to buy. Funny how many cosmetics items are now made in Italy vs Made in France now…Oh, how I wish for the old days when stuff were not made in China or in Mexico, but in France and in the USA.

      what’s wrong with made in italy? this is an honest question, not an attack :)

      also i’ve personally found the best to be made in germany (burberry, illamasqua, etc), so not france or USA

      • I buy Made in Italy cosmetic products too…like Dolce N Gabanna. And pencils (lip and eye) from Germany. I grew up at a time in the early 80’s when I bought makeup at Macy’s or I Magnin or the high end makeup counters where the cosmetics was made in the United States or in France….very little made in Italy, Japan etc. I have no offense to Made in Italy cosmetics. In fact my face products are made in Italy…Santa Maria Norvella by monks in Florence. I just find it odd that many French couture designers like Givenchy would not have cosmetics made in France now. Times have change. Back then all the French designer brands like Guerlain, Stendahl (my favorite mascara), Orlane etc. had ALL their products made in France. If I am going to buy a French name, I would like it to be made in France.
        Thanks for asking.

  4. I think you’re right about the dupeability factor. Especially for MU addicts who already have 9.6 million dupes for this sitting in their dresser drawer.

    Even if these were the best versions of these shades in the world, I also think that many people use shades like this as accent colors, so there may not be that drive to nab the highest quality version.

    I saw this on a counter and the girl explained to me that there is also another use. Try putting the white-yellow colour OVER the black base. You should get a nice effect! :-)

    Is this a dupe for MAC’s Emphasize sculpting/shaping powder? If not, could you recommend one?

    58 bucks (add another 10 or so in Canada) for what’s basically MAC Vapour and Urban Decay Perversion (or TheBalm’s shades you mentioned, Christine). I don’t think so!

    I actually really love the way this looks. If I was older, I think I would really consider buying this. It looks like a really pretty way to keep some basics around.

  10. kristi

    wow i REALLY like the dark shade. if the texture is right then i might just have to shell out the money for this.

    I have seen these in real life. I cannot wear black or dark grey shadows. The palette looks cute but that is it. The cream/blue one is really wearable.
