Givenchy Spring 2011: Candide Tangerine

Givenchy Candide Tangerine (50) Rouge Interdit Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, bright orange with a touch of darkness that keeps it from being a completely neon shade. The finish is satiny with a soft sheen but a creamy texture and nearly full color coverage. Illamasqua’s Temptress is a touch redder, while shades like MAC Neon Orange are closer but a little lighter.

my thoughts on the formula: The Rouge Interdit formula is creamy without being slippery nor clingy. It wears comfortably and holds on for four to six hours, with some of the lighter shades lasting only three to four (but those are in the minority). It has a noticeable floral perfumed scent but no taste. I do find that this formula is moisturizing, too, while still wearing really well.

A+
This is a shade of orange that will work well on warmer skin tones, particularly deeper skin tones, because it offers a lot of brightness without turning neon.

Givenchy Spring 2011 Collection: Naivement Couture

If the world’s first woman were to be born today in the primeval garden, she would no doubt have a different vision of paradise. Nature would be tamed, its energy restrained, creating an ambiance in which she would more likely cut down the Tree of Knowledge than water it. But springtime always manages to awaken desires and dispel gloomy ideas. The impulse to seek gratification is driven by a sixth sense, making us eager for any and all sorts of sensations. A breath of pure air to be discovered or devised. The Must-Have, Blush Gelée, is a rich elixir of youth, illuminating a self-assured candour with fresh energy. NAÏVEMENT COUTURE (“naively couture”) is an autosuggestion of happiness.
