Givenchy Le Prisme Quartet Swatches + FOTD

It was a sunny day in New York and I finally got a chance to take swatch pics for the Givenchy Le Prisme Quartets. I swatched them as they appear in the pan with no primer.

L->R: Pastel Model, Khaki Egerie, Siena Silhouette, Blue Collection, Midnight Look

Closer Look:

L->R: Pastel Model, Khaki Egerie, Siena Silhouette

L->R: Blue Collection and Midnight Look

All the shadows applied super smooth and blended easily. My favorites are Blue Collection and Midnight Look-I love the lower right color in both. My least loved was Pastel Model-the colors were the sheerest (it was also super similar to the Clarins Quartet in Celestial which I already own).

Here was my fotd using Blue Collection:

Givenchy Fall 2010-Le Prisme Quartet

I have a soft spot for Givenchy cosmetics. I don't know what it is, but I do heart many of their products especially their eye shadows. For Fall 2010, they released a new eye shadow palette called Le Prisme Quartet in six shades. Here are pics for five out of the six. Sorry these are just product shots, swatches to come shortly. I haven't played with all the shades but so far, they've performed very well =D

Blue Collection

Midnight Look
Sometimes I think the pics are accurate and other times it seems a bit too navy.
This palette is suppose to be violet themed.

Siena Silhouette

Pastel Model

Khaki Egerie

Dior Cherry Flowers Polish

Here are pics of the Sephora exclusive Dior Cherry Flower polish for Fall 2010. It's a bit too warm and borderline mauve-y for me (I took it off after only one day) but it did apply super smooth and I liked the touch of iridescent in the color.

Pic with flash

Here's a better pic of the bottle

What do you think of this color for Fall?

Paul & Joe Autumn Collection 2010

I was going to continue with the Guerlain stuff but I've misplaced the charger for my camera so I'll post those pics once I can find it and upload from that camera.

I decided to borrow the bf's camera and take pics of the Paul & Joe Autumn offerings that I picked up this past week from Bergdorfs. I picked up 2 of the eyeshadow palettes and 2 of the cat lipsticks that have generated much buzz since promo pics were released.

The eyeshadow palettes come in paper boxes with designs picked up from the Paul & Joe autumn fashions. The lid is secured with an elastic band. When you remove the lid, you can tuck it under the palette. All the colors in these palettes have shimmer in them.

Closed package
Paper Moon (Swan box)

Silvery Moon (Paisley box)

Paper moon swatches (with flash): Light gold, light pink with gold shimmer, warm orange, chocolate brown and dark brown

Silvery moon swatches (top: no flash, bottom: with flash):
white silver, light gold, moss green, dark grey and dark blue

As cute as the cat lipsticks were, I was kind of creeped out by them at the same time when I saw the promo pics. They are a bit less creepy to me now but it's still a bit strange to use a cat head as a lipstick. I've been using the back of the head so that the face is preserved =)

Left: Over the Moon; Right: Clair de Lune

Close ups:

Clair de lune

Over the Moon

Top: Over the Moon (medium pink); Bottom: Clair de Lune (mauvey plum)

There are also eye liners in this collection but they haven't reached the BG counter yet. Overall, this collection offers lovely shimmery shadows and neutral lip colors. Although the main draw for me was the packaging =)
