Givenchy Les Saisons 2018 African Light Collection for Summer 2018, Nicolas Degennes took inspiration from Africa's multicultural richness, its powerful colors and scents and the African positive state of mind. The colors in this collection are celebrating African Earth where natural elements get a special sun-heated tint. From beigy shades to more intense ochre and khaki tones. The products and shades in this African Earth Collection magnify every complexion, in the most authentic way. you will see in the pictures and swatches below, the mix of ethnical patterns and warm colors.
The time I reviewed Givenchy Bouncy Highlighter – African Light Gold, I love how it performs, apart from being a beautiful work of art and design, the formula is so unique and jelly-like. The shimmering glow it provides really accentuates the complexion and looks amazing for outdoors as well as indoors. In Givenchy Les Saisons 2018 African Light Collection, there are two new shades of Rouge Interdit Vinyl and a new shade of Khol Couture waterproof.
Givenchy Les Saison 2018 African Rouge Interdit Vinyl
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl is medium color lipstick formulated with black rose oil for ultimate shine, impactful color, and a plumping effect. The unique formula is infused with black rose oil, a rare and precious active ingredient that delivers extreme moisture and comfort to the lips for hours. It is combined with a silicone resin that forms a shiny, thin, and supple film on the lips’ surface for a second-skin feel. Lips are left with a “vinyl” radiance and a filling effect: lips instantly appear fuller, smoother, and denser. Each high-shine color blurs away all the lips’ tiniest imperfections and reflects the light, and its slick case features a metallic, satin ribbon design that’s inspired by the House’s fashion designs.
I reviewed Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl last year in details here, the formula is one of my favorites. It is very moisturizing, sheer and easily buildable, very comfortable to wear. It does not accentuates lines and never makes my dry lips drier, in fact after the product has worn off, I still feel moisture on the lips. The lipsticks have a beautiful shiny finish. The lipstick can be used as a soft stain or layer it up for more intense effect. The two shades from the collection include No 17 and No 18. No 17 is a golden burgundy shade and will really look great on many skin tones. No 18 is a raspberry red.
Givenchy Les Saison 2018 Khol No 8 African Bronze
Givenchy Khol is one of my favorite eyeliners for its pigment-rich, long-lasting, and smudge-proof formula. The khol is enriched with intense color pigments. Its long-wear formula resists humidity and glides seamlessly onto your lids. Its retractable pencil means the application is precise and fast, and its comfortable and smooth texture allows for all-day wear. The array of colors interplay with the seasons to define eyes year round.
Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner 01 black and 02 chestnut are my daily go-to eyeliners from Givenchy which I reviewed in details here. The texture is smooth and creamy and once it sets, it lasts a really long time. The new African Bronze shade is really wearable. It is a khaki shade with golden pearls, designed to emulate the African earth, vegetation, and sun. I love the family of green for my eyes and this khaki is one of the most beautiful shade I own in green after my khaki eyeliner from Chanel which was also a limited edition, I will update the exact name of it if you need. The golden pearls do not make it even a less intense shade of khaki but give a beautiful finish. It is easily buildable and the formula is great for even sensitive eyes like mine. I have been wearing it non-stop and have already shared my looks on my Instagram stories here.
