Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Blues and Poetique Browns Review and Swatches

Givenchy took a delightfully different road for their Fall Collection eye look. Where as the rest of the world is going bold, Givenchy's look for Fall is a soft, romantic look with a range of delicious little shades to spark up your eyes with an ethereal glow.

Jump ahead for a peep and swatches of the new Givenchy Prismissime Eyes in Poetique Blues and Poetique Browns!

Packed inside each of the new Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Eyeshadow palettes are a range of nine gorgeous shades to create any number of softly focused eye looks.

Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Blues is packed with rich, sparkling jewel shades ranging from purple, to blue, and pink. Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Poetique Browns is a richer range of golds, browns, bronzes, and creams.

The friendliest palette for Fall would be Poetique Browns as it's considerably warmer in color than Poetique Blues. If it's a cooler look you fancy, Poetique Blues is an ideal selection.

As with most Givenchy Prismissime this aren't heavily pigmented eye shadows. They give just a touch of shimmering shadow to eyes for a very soft look but can be built up in intensity depending on the shades used. I felt like the browns were considerably more pigmented than the blues. The browns definitely hold a special place in my heart for Fall and I imagine when the brisker weather sets in the blues will top my list.

Each palette has the typical stealthy little hidden compartment beneath which houses two sponge applicators and a brush. Some do find these a tad useless as they are so itty bitty in size however I think they are actually ideal for picking up just the right amount of color from each tiny square eye shadow and applying to the lid.

Overall, both are wonderful color combos and worthy of a pick up for true Givenchy fans. The browns are particularly a great collection. I'm quite pleased with both and ever so happy to have a new Prismissime to play with as it's been too long inbetween eye Prismissimes for me!

A happy Muse Approval for purchase!

Loving all over these.

I'll be bringing you looks using each palette shortly.

I bought the brown one but returned it; the colors were beautiful, but I thought it was way too small for its price. It was pretty for the couple of hours it was mine though!

These are so COOL! I never can tell if I'm warm or cool toned but I usually gravitate towards the cooler palettes.

Audrey Hepburn is my style muse, so Givenchy makes me happy. =)
