Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara Swatches + Review

I remember back when Givenchy first launched their Phenomen’Eyes mascara. I was completely in love with the formula and repurchased it several times. It’s been a few years since that release, so when another new mascara released from the brand I was eager to give it a try. The latest is the Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara – said to give Volume, Length, Curl & Care. I’m not going to lie, it was the wand that attracted me the most, followed by the sleek packaging.

The shade shown in the photos is in 1 Black Satin. In terms of Length and Curl I thought that this mascara performed well. Volume… not so much. Care… I don’t know how I even comment on that as a review (without testing this for three months straight on it’s own) but I’d like to think it’s providing the nutrition and protection to my lashes that it says it is. To me, this mascara is just okay. On my lashes/based off of my experience I don’t believe it to be worth the $32.00 and recommend that if you’d like a Givenchy mascara you get yourself some Phenomen’Eyes.

The Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara retails for $32.00 and is available at Sephora.

Givenchy AMBRE CROISIERE Poudre Croisière Healthy Glow Powder Swatches and Review

Givenchy is a brand I’ve actually never delved into for makeup! The Poudre Croisière Healthy Glow Powder looked promising, and I’m excited to share the shade Ambre Croisiere with you!

What the Sephora website has to say about Givenchy Ambre Croisiere Healthy Glow Powder:

What it is:
A talc-free bronzer made of a baked gel.

What it does:
Totally weightless and invisible on the skin, this creamy formula provides ultimate softness and a light-as-air natural finish. With a consistency that’s easy to blend, this bronzer can be applied alone with the Givenchy Kabuki brush or over Mister Radiant. Use it year-round to smooth pores, even the skin’s texture, and provide a healthy glow.

Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.

Size: 0.24 oz

Ambre Croisiere is a nice, light bronzer. I didn’t feel like it was a WOW or did anything special, but if you’re in the market for a nice bronzer, this would be a good choice. If you’re very pale this is a great one to cut your teeth on, because it applies very lightly and you really have to work to get color to show.

I don’t know if I like the design of the powder…. immediately it reminded me of leathery, wrinkled, over-tanned skin. However, even heavy use and swatching of this didn’t damage the design, so that was nice.

The packaging for this powder is so sleek and heavy. It’s smooth and simple, leaving the focus on the product itself.

I applied Ambre Croisiere rather heavily for the photo, because initially when I applied the powder it was not showing up in the photos at ALL. I basically had to get all angry with it lol This is a bit heavier than I’d wear out in public, but it shows the color well and is good for photos 😉

If interested, the eye shadow is the Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Eye Kaleidoscope, mascara is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill, and the lipstick is MAC Viva Glam Nicki.

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder retails for $50.00 and is available at Sephora.
