Givenchy did it again with their Holiday collection. It’s one of the heavier looks we’re seeing and that’s all because of the gorgeous gem of an eyeshadow palette. We’re seeing metallic, shimmery finishes and the colour black leads the story in this look. To me this is a perfect look for NYE or for any occasion that asks for a more daring look.
Le Prismissime Noirs En Folie is a palette with different variations on black. They are all shimmery but the pigmentation and finish varies. You get 9 shades, so there is a lot to play with. The eyeshadow palette comes in a black box. I was surprised at how small it was at first, but it’s perfectly workable. The box has a shimmery design of a star on top, which is very very pretty. As you can see the box is quite thick and that’s because it has a compartment with three little brushes.
Let’s talk about the shades. We see different colours and the tone of the palette leans a bit more cool toned with a few warmer shades. At first glance you’d think they all have the same finish, pigmentation, but that’s not the case. Some shades work more as a iridescent coat of shimmer, while others are better used as a base. The two most pigmented shades were the silver in the middle-right (it’s almost like a foil finish) and the red-brown shade in the lower row.
There are a few things you have to understand from this palette. First thing is: it’s not a palette that provides a complete look. These are all dark shades, it’s the theme of the palette. Second thing is: not all are super pigmented, some are meant for layering. And last thing is: this works best over a dark base. Givenchy has released a Ombre Couture that goes perfectly with this, which I will talk about in the other post. Le Prismissime Noirs En Folie is a gorgeous little gem with lots of options for a dramatic look loaded with lots of glam!
