We’re just shy of a month into a brand new year, and there has already been so much newness. Talk about starting 2015 with a bang! One of the biggest launches of the year so far is in fact relaunch; and a dual one at that. Givenchy has reinvented two of its most iconic makeup products, the Prisme Quatuor Eyeshadow Palette and the Phenomen’Eyes Mascara, with sleek new packaging and improved usability.
The biggest changes are seen in the Prisme Quatuor Eyeshadow Palette, and fans will be itching to know what’s changed. We’ve got the low down on the new colour harmonies and the new-look palette.
So, what’s different? Well for starters, it’s a lot sleeker. There’s just one tier now (the applicators were in a pull-out drawer in the previous incarnation), which makes it a lot more portable, and there are eight brand new colour harmonies ranging from sophisticated nudes to disco glimmers.
Aside from the ultra creamy, long-wearing eye colour that Givenchy are famous for, it’s the little touches that set this palette apart from the rest. The stud fastening. The inclusion of a pointed applicator for more precise placement of colour. The raised Givenchy insignia. It’s a luxurious product that’s both practical and completely beautiful – and what could be better than that?
