Givenchy’s Maharani Collection for Spring was definitely captivating as soon as I saw the promotional images for the launch. It also sounded extremely warm-toned and flattering for my skin tone, so I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to check it all out!

The real standouts from the launch are the two blushes–Maharani Orange and Maharani Pink Sari Glow Iridescent Blush ($42.00 each). The packaging for the entire collection is really fabulous with the rich orange and pink-purple with the gold overlay. On the actual blush product, there is a black design overlay, which will sort of flake away as you use the product, but it’s a nice touch. Both shades are amazingly pigmented and perfect for spring and summer. Maharani Orange is a softly shimmered peachy-orange, while Maharani Pink is softer, almost neutral pink with subtle shimmer. I can’t wait to wear them!

Expect a few more reviews from this launch over today and tomorrow :) I’m off to meet my mom for a lil’ bit and meet my “friend” Charles Schwab to do boring, adult things (booooo!).

Coastal Scents Blush Palette ($16.95) consists of ten blushes–four matte and six shimmer–and are about the size of an extra large eyeshadow. It’s housed in a sleek matte black case, and it’s about nine inches in length. The palette has a nice variety of colors, ranging from warm pinks to shimmery peach to magenta fuchsia. I would say that the majority of the colors are warmer rather than cooler, if that makes a difference for any of you. Each blush is pigmented, and of course, the matte ones run chalkier than a shimmer one, but I didn’t find them to be unexpectedly chalky or unusable. The mattes are smooth and well-textured with nice pay off.

Just a little preview of Cremeteam :) It features Lavender Whip lipstick and Fashion Scoop and Looks Like Skin Cremesheen Glasses. Wish I didn’t have to leave y’all to go to class! I swear, my life would be perfect if I didn’t have school to go to!

** Edited: From what I know, the lipsticks are permanent, while the Cremesheen Glasses are limited. Also, the new foundation and concealer are permanent from what I’ve been told!
