The concept of vinyl in makeup is so appealing to me. I love the idea of shine and reflectiveness so I literally couldn’t wait to see what Givenchy had come up with.

Nicolas Degennes says,  “It is the mastery of light that gives life to a drawing. VINYL is a slow and determined quest to find oneself. It is the writing exercise in Indian ink that you have to practice to understand yourself, master the stroke and play on its intensity. It is an answer to a world that is moving quickly, sometimes too quickly.”

Givenchy Vinyl Palette Metallic Reflection

This palette features the new Metal Aquarelle formula which contains aluminium powder pearlescent particles. They are coated in a thin layer of silica for superior coverage and longer wear hold and are smaller than regular pearlescent particles so that they deliver a flawless lustre.

3 of the shadows reflect light beautifully because they have an extremely metallic base, and this means the colours are intensified. There is one matte shade in the palette – a red-black. It is there to create contrast to the extreme shine.

I absolutely adore the packaging. I love how Givenchy does leather and this time it is all about the soft contrast of a suede finish with the high shine of patent silver.

Givenchy Vinyl Mister Intense Black Top Coat Mascara – Black Vinyl No 1

This is being dubbed as an ink for lashes and I love that! Mister Intense Black Top Coat Mascara uses cutting edge technology with an aqueous formulation derived from an intensely black polymer base.  It promises to coat the lashes and make them appear more dense without adding thickness to individual lashes. It can also be used over other masacaras.

Givenchy Vinyl Blush Memoire de Forme – Rose Delicat No 2

I was so excited when Givenchy introduced this new texture last year – it is 72% water! It gives a beautiful juicy finish on the skin and is super flattering. I love this super soft healthy shade.

This promises a high shine finish with a super thin brush makes it really easy to work with.

Givenchy Vinyl Collection Autumn 2015 is out August 2015 – now!
