After I finished freaking out over the cost of the new Givenchy Le Prisme Eyeshadow Quartet in Khaki Egerie ($56), I stepped back from the mirror and thought, “Now THAT’s what I’m talking about.”
I swear these colors make my eyes glow!
Givenchy just added it and five other quads to their permanent line, each promising highly pigmented, enduring colors, and if Khaki Egerie’s any indication of what the other quads have to offer, all of them probably warrant closer inspection.
The major selling point for me — besides the rich pigmentation and sumptuous shimmer — has to be the near absence of fallout. It’s minimal (just a tiny spec or two beneath my lower lash line and cheeks)… The soft, finely milled powders adhere to my lids without creasing or settling into my
wrinkles fine lines, and they blend CRAZY good, too.

Although $56 isn’t unusual for a Givenchy quad, it still hurts. Egerie or one of her sisters might be prime shopping cart candidates for an upcoming Sephora Friends & Family sale, but her regular price keeps me from falling head over heels in love.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Belated TGIF. What are you up to today? My in-laws arrived late last night from Hawaii, and they’re still getting settled, so I’m running a little behind. They’ll be staying with us for a couple weeks, just hanging out and keeping us company. Tabs, whom they hadn’t met before, is showing them around the neighborhood right now…
