Givenchy Tentation (7) Prisme Quatuor Eyeshadow Quad ($58.00 for 0.14 oz.) consists of a medium yellowed green, burgundy, mauve-y pink, and shimmery beige. I thought it was an interesting color combination to try, but I was very disappointed in the quality of the eyeshadows in practice. Givenchy describes the formula as having an “intuitive application [that] offers immediate and even coverage for pure, intense color payoff … comfortable to wear and luminous, it stays true all day long.” They swatched with promise, but they just didn’t adhere well, blend easily, or wear for long. The initial application made it look like I had been wearing the eyeshadows for sixteen hours in humid weather–faded, muddied, and uneven, when it was more like five minutes. You know it’s bad when you apply the product, see the end result, apply more, still get the same result, and have ended up packing so much product on that you have more eyeshadow underneath your eye than above it, then say, “screw it!” and remove and try again another day, only to endure the same frustrating, dismal results as before a week later.
