What’s up my around the way girls?
I’m leaving for the dentist in a few (boo!) and feeling a little bit frazzled, but I wanted to pop by to say a quick hello and share some goodies from Givenchy’s Les Poetiques fall collection.
These cuties involve three things near and dear to my makeup-lurving heart — sparkly deep blues, shimmery grays and rich purples.
The last few days have been rough (the condo ruckus, hella gray roots, Speidi, holes in my favorite stretchy pants, Mario Lopez’s abuse of “master mix” on ABDC, etc., etc.), so I’m kinda excited about this.
The cooks in Givenchy’s kitchen stirred some primo ingredients into this collection. A dollup of the deep blues from Lancome Declaring Indigo, a pinch o’ plum from Dior Jazz Club and a handful of grays from Chanel Venice equals BAM! (Emeril style!) — Les Poetiques.
A few quick notes…
- Prismissime Eyes in Poetique Blues just might be the best Givenchy eye palette I’ve seen in a long time. The shimmery grays, purples and blues (with a touch of pink and taupe) blend together effortlessly. Light-skinned lovelies with cooler tones should rock this, Amadeus.
- Les Poetiques Gloss in Poetique Rose is a glossy, rosy pink that seems to change colors as the day wears on, starting off as a light pink and turning into a deeper rose over the course of the day. It’s a pretty, natural lip look — so very Bella Swan!
- Phenomen Eyes in Grey Lavender looks more like a dark blackish gray than a lavender to me and only when I pack on the layers and look really, REALLY closely. I have enough grays on the top of my head; I dunno if I need more on my eyelashes, LOL!
- Parad’Eyes Liner in Poetique Lavender is like the liquid version of Lancome’s Declaring Indigo Gel liner. I’ll probably skip using the uber-stiff brush it comes with and opt for a pointed brush like the MAC 209 instead. Oily-skinned gals might love this liner, as it hangs onto my oily lids like a mo’ fo’.

Anyhoo, I hope your Wednesday’s gone swimmingly so far.
Back in two shakes.
