“For Autumn-Winter 2012, Acoustic Colors offers a score of magnetic and undulating colours on a harmonious stave of references. It is a show in which colours, lights and vibrations perform with an electric, rock ‘n’ roll energy. This score was partly inspired by Liv Tyler, my accomplice, who grew up in a world of sound and image. I asked her to colour her inner music that day. Pink. Natural. Two shades of LIVely Pink for the lips.”

–Nicolas Degennes, Givenchy Makeup Artistic Director

  1. I love them all and think they are great palettes for the fall. I can definitely see the Liv Tyler inspiration with the rock and roll vibe. Great post!

  2. I had to stare at the eyeshadow quad for a few moments before I could decide that I like it! :p

    My gut reaction was: “TOO MUCH SHIMMER!” But the more I look at it, the more I can see the different ways I could use it.

    I like the quad. It looks more promising than the NARS Arabian Nights trio.

    Karen, do you keep all the makeup the companies send you? I want to see the complete stash sometime!

  4. Nina says:

    The quad feels like its a tad too shimmery … or does it? I want it because the colors are so interesting and different.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina!

      It’s quite unusual for Givenchy…and I like it. :) I can’t wait to try this with a smokey eye. Hopefully the glitter won’t fall out.

      Are you finished with shopping for a present for your hub’s bday?

      • Nina says:

        Yep! I got him several things that hes been wanting for a while. He always says he doesnt want anything but I pick up on things he talks about! :-)

        Today is his birthday and we’re having Peking Duck for dinner as well as ice cream cake – his picks!

  5. Tracy says:

    Holy Glitter-fest! As long as that shimmer stays put and doesn’t fall out then I might like it. I’ve never seen so much glitter from Givenchy. The lipstick looks pretty though!

    I love the quad! I want it!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Agata!

      I didn’t know you were a glitter kinda gal. :D This quad’s bursting with glitter, but it’s fine, which is nice.

      How’s your week going? Good, I hope. Things on this end are great. We’re having some really nice weather here in the Bay Area — warm but not sweltering hot. It’s hard to be inside!

      • Agata says:

        I am totally a shimmer and glitter girl! To be honest I hardly ever use matte eyeshadows anymore. Of course, I like my glitter to be subtle, not be chunky and very visible.

        My week has been good so far, nothing too exciting. The weather here is beautiful but it’s too hot, high 80s or 90s. I am kinda looking forward to Fall already.

  8. Lulle says:

    Wait, the Magic gloss is clear, but then it turns pink once applied to the lips? That looks fun!

  9. I’m normally a glitterphob but I like the selection of shades in this palette. Can’t wait till you do a smoky eye with it. If there’s no fallout I might have to cave. The lipstick looks like a nice everyday shade.

    Oooo! I’m LOVING that lipstick! I’m going to have to check that out for sure!

  11. Lisa S. says:

    I want them all right now! So excited for these fall colors and they have outdone themselves this time. I might have to come take them from you. Just kidding, but do you have a release date when we can actually purchase? LOVE. thanks for all you do!

  12. Katherine G says:

    Uh oh…another makeup brand I haven’t bought from yet and I already want the eyeshadow quad and that lip gloss in Acoustic Wild Rose….

  13. Rachel says:

    Ooh! I love! I have been looking for mega shimmery shadows that make your eyelids almost wet/glossy. They look like it

    this looks pretty interesting!

  15. It’s a bit too much glitter for my liking–but as usual Givenchy’s packaging has gotten to me and I want it anyway :P

  16. I love Givenchy! That all looks so gorgeous!

  17. I like shimmer, but this is too glittery for me. I’ll pass for these, except maybe the lipstick. That does look very pretty :-)

  18. Kim says:

    I don’t really need to respond, do I? :)

    I can’t wait to see you do a FOTD with this and I’m especially interested in the Acoustic Wild Rose lippie. The packaging has a fantastic disco ball feel to it. And how can anyone not love Liv Tyler. She’s adorable. And she’s Arwen, for goodness sake. :)

  19. Crecia says:

    Yes, release date please!! I am so in love with what you’ve shown so far. Not usually my thing, but I am obsessed for some reason!!
