I told you this would be the last fall collection, but the Dior Skyline collection landed last minute on my desk, so there is one more after this one to come. This post exists half out of the actual fall collection (Superstellar), but I'm also showing you a few of the new brow products that launched around the same time, and are now available in store. Let's take a look!
Let's start with the brow products! The first thing I'm showing you is the eyebrow pencil. It comes in 3 shades: N°1 Brunette - N°2 Blonde - N°3 Dark Brunette, I have shade 03 Dark Brunette.
When I first swatched this on my hand I wasn't too smitten with it - it felt scratchy, dry, like a coloring pencil. But when I used it on my brows I was glad with the dry- and scratchiness! I can color in my brows in the most natural way. Pencils often are too harsh, giving a drawn on look. This one colors in the blanks and makes them look fuller, without looking drawn on or too harsh. The formula contains talc and pigments which gives that matte, natural result.
Mister Brow Groom
Mister Brow Groom is a transparant brow gel to keep your brows in place. I always use a brow gel, and I have tried out quite a few budget and high-end, but I am quite picky. Well, not really picky, I just have difficult eyebrows. The Mister Brow Groom is a good brow gel, it works well and applies easy. But it doesn't hold my eyebrows in shape for a whole day, so I keep it in my purse and re-apply after a few hours.
Superstellar (Fall 2016)
The Superstellar collection is all about superhero's, superwomen. The collection -created by Nicolas Degennes- is a passage way between the daily life and a fantasy world. Through colors he regenerates the ordinary world, with power and intensity.
Now the 3 products from the Superstellar fall collection, starting of with the liner. The liner comes in 2 shades: N°2 Heroic Blue and N°3 Heroic Silver. Both gorgeous colors, but as you know, I have a thing for the royal blue shade.
The liner has a wet formula, but works well on the eye. (Remember the liquid eyeliner from this year's Urban Decay fall collection? It was too wet, didn't work well.) When applied to the eye it has a glossy finish, even when completely dry, it remains glossy. I expected a matte finish, but I really like the glossy effect, it's perfectly in line with the Superstellar theme.
For the little eyelook I used the liner in the corners of my eye and faded it into a black eyeliner. The thin brush also makes it easy to work detailed.
Givenchy drops in a lot of collections (I've already had a grey and a blue one) a colored version of the Phenomen'Eyes mascara. The color this time is 'Heroic Green', a hulk version of the popular mascara.
Le Vernis de Givenchy
And to completely finish of a look: this gorgeous pure and deep blue nail polish. An ode to the superwoman.
The nail polish covers perfectly in two layers, and this is my absolute favorite color this fall, I've been wearing only this lately. The shade name is 'Heroic Blue' by the way, just like the eyeliner.
Givenchy - Eyebrow pencil in N°3 Dark Brunette (€24,50)
Givenchy - Mister Brow Groom (€24,50
Givenchy - Liner Vinyl in N°2 Heroic Blue (€32, LE)
Givenchy - Phenomen'Eyes in N°4 Heroic Green (€31, LE)
Givenchy - Le Vernis Givenchy in N°30 Heroic Blue (€23, LE)
The Superstellar collection also has one killer of a palette. Definitely the star (literally, because the pans are star shaped) of the collection. Worth checking out!
My favorites of the products I tried are: the eyeliner, nail polish and -unexpectedly- the brow pencil.
