Kicking off with the Holiday looks series is the Givenchy Extravagancia collection. It’s actually a Fall collection, but since it’s so luxurious it can be easily passable as a Holiday collection. First up is the Extravagancia palette, containing 4 eyeshadows and a lip colour. I’m not too familiar with the Givenchy eyeshadows, but I always liked the design. It reminds me a bit of chocolate, no?
The palette itself is simply gorgeous. It has black leather on the top, with a gorgeous golden design. It’s pretty extravagant and this palette will surely be one of those that you want to showcase. Inside you get 1.9 g of lipstich and 4 g of eyeshadows. There is a mirror and two tiny brushes. A typical Givenchy detail is the silver pyramid stud that you press on to open the palette. Gotta love those details!
So inside we get 4 shades of eyeshadows. Two are very iridescent and shimmery and the other two are satin shades. The overall feel of this palette is quite purple toned with a hint of glamorous gold. The dark brown and the purple work very well together. I love how they layer because it gives the brown a very nice purple sheen. The golden shade gives a glossy effect, but beware of fall-out. The purple/black shimmery shade is perfect as a glossy liner or to jazz up the look with extra sheen. They are all very nicely pigmented and work perfectly together. The lip colour is sheer warm light pink/coral with a cream finish. Expect medium pigmentation. You can use it as a cream blush too, something that I did for this look.
This palette may not be an absolute must-have if you are looking for something to wear on a daily base but if you are looking for something festive, than this palette does deliver it all. Every shade works great and together they give you quite a glamorous look. The palette itself is an absolute joy for the eye so I think that Givenchy nailed it with this beauty!
