Givenchy Lune Mordoree Les Ombres de Lune
Givenchy Fall 2011: Lune Mordoree Les Ombres de Lune
Givenchy Lune Mordoree 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.” Mordoree is described as a “night blue moon in a golden sky.”
The moon-shaped shade is a dusky navy blue with a hint of purple and a pearled sheen. It had a drier texture than I’d like to see, because drier textures often make for more difficult blending and application. For something that is described as “intense,” I also expected better pigmentation. It reminded me of MAC Later, and I imagine a comparison could be drawn to MAC Contrast as well.
The sky shade is a pale, yellowed gold with a fair amount of sheen in its finish. The texture of this shade is much better–it’s smoother, softer, and silkier. It blends out better and doesn’t have the dryness of the darker shade. It looks a bit like theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer when blended out. It’s darker than MAC Nylon.
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.
