givenchy ombre couture cream eye shadow review, swatch

|    affilate    |

You may or may not know my buying habits. I don’t purchase everything right away even if I’m enticed to the nth degree. I want to study, experience, evaluate and decide. Then I procure few more. I’m like that even with my shoes. If I seriously like a particular style, I’d buy two or more pairs in different colors.

Such is the case with Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow. Because I was immensely impressed with the overall quality of my initial haul (review here), the makeup junkie side of moi can’t be repressed… I want more por favor!

All three are pigmented, sweat-proof (survived intensive workout), and with decent eight-hour wear time. Unfortunately, these aren’t waterproof, they rubbed off right away under running water. I know it’s not exactly hygienic but the best way to apply this cream eyeshadow on the lid is by using your pinkie or ring finger. Blending the crease with a finger ain’t rocket science but if you pull up the color from the edge of the lid to the crease by doing a quick patting motion, you’ll achieve a beautiful transitional effect. I like to use Blue Soleil and Prune Taffetas as eyeliner, they go on smooth! Talk about multi-tasking ha?

For my eye makeup below, I used Brune Cachemire exclusively on the lid and crease, tight-lined my upper lash line with a black liner, and applied two coats of black mascara . Easy peasy.
