some makeup is so carefully crafted that it looks like art. and givenchy has that art down to a science. their summer escapade 2008 collection, makes me simultaneously desperate for summer so that i can justify diving into these palettes everyday and dreading how summer will lead to the destruction of their artful beauty via my playing with them.
just looking at this collection makes me escape to a world of shimmers and bronze.
the collection (and my thoughts):
prisme again! eyes in 10 summer escapade - $49.50
*four shades of iridescent magic*
prismissime mat & glow in 71 natural and 72 sunny - $53
*sun-kissed bliss in a mix and match, matte and shimmer, format*
tan to go in 01 sandy tan and 02 amber tan - $45
*spray paint your way to a safe tan*
pop gloss crystal in tahiti coral and ibiza pink - $23.50
*true, shiny summer glosses*
glitter to go fresh'n shine body gel - $35
*10 singlets of body shimmer, filled with pink and gold tones to attract the eye and erase imperfections*
