First, mood rings. Now, mood makeup! How do you feel about lip products designed to change colors once you get them on your pout? The idea’s nothing new, but Givenchy’s new take on it is making me smile. :)

Some of that’s because of these chic, sleek outfits. Givenchy always turns that mutha out! when it comes to good-looking packaging.

And then there’s the way new Magic Lipstick Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #57 ($30) and Le Gloss Revelateur De Liv Magic Lipgloss Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #34 ($27.50) feel on my lips — lightweight, silky and comfortable, like my favorite silk dress.

Both the Magic Lipstick Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #57 and Le Gloss Revelateur De Liv Magic Lipgloss Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #34 were inspired by Givenchy spokeswoman Liv Tyler, hence the shout-out to her name in the products’ spelling.

Apply either the light pink Lipstick or clear Gloss on bare lips, and ahhh… Feels so good! Lo and behold, about a minute or so later, both colors have changed into deeper pink hues that last about two hours on me.

If You Ask Givenchy, Summer Is Sheer! Say Hello to the Shimmery New Ete A Fleur de Peau Collection for Summer 2012

Givenchy Ete A Fleur de Peau Collection for Summer 2012

Ah… Do you feel that light breeze caressing your cheeks? Isn’t it nice? It’s like the wind is giving us a kiss. :)

Givenchy went that same easy, breezy route this summer with their new six-piece A Fleur de Peau Collection for Summer 2012 collection. It’s all about barely-there color, dainty shimmer and soft, natural shades.

“Brunch makeup!” — that’s what I thought about these pieces the first time I saw them, and I tested them out on an actual brunch with El Hub last Saturday, when I slipped on four of the six products before doing some damage on a short stack of banana pancakes.

Ombre A Fleur de Peau Luminescent Cream Eyeshadows, $34 each

Wow! Look at all that glitter… Oh, hai! These potted cream shadows deposit loads of shimmer and sheer color. Unfortunately, Pearly Nude (a nude peach with silver glitter) and Pearly Rose (a nude pink with silver glitter) start creasing on me in less than an hour. The glitter stays put, though (weird!) and lasts all day long. Despite the colors creasing, I do like how these light up my eyes.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B

Magic Kajal Eye Pencil Intense in Delicate Nude #2, $22.50

I like how creamy this matte beige eyeliner feels, and I think it does a stellar job of brightening up my eyes when I wear it along my lower water line, but it gives up the ghost after two hours and straight-up disappears, POOF!
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B-

Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Delicate Rose, $30

My favorite love thing from this launch! Pigmented, lightweight and smooth? Yes, please! This soft rose has a near-blinding mirror shine, but the wear time is only okay (about three hours). I do adore the packaging — so elegant! — and the faint rose flavor and scent.

Oui, ma chère, Givenchy would like to meet you at Sephora this June. Feast your lovely eyes on the new Givenchy A Fleur de Peau Collection for Summer 2012.

Just like summer itself, the release is limited edition. :) Six pieces for eyes, lips and nails, and the theme? — an airy look with sun-kissed skin and barely-there eyes and lips.

Think draped dresses, the light caress of a cool sea breeze, and the first rays of sunlight at dawn.

Here are pics and swatches of four of the six pieces from the release…
