Givenchy Trip to Paris

Paris is always a good idea, right? Specially when it comes with a Givenchy beauty launch and a crew of lovely ladies. In the early hours of Monday we took the Eurostar to Paris… we were greeted by the most gorgeous day (how I love a sunny Paris, oui) and checked in at The Peninsula Hotel!

We then made our way to the Kléber terrace to catch a bit of sunlight and a glass of rosé, bien sûr! Later in the day I had my photoshoot with Givenchy for their amazing new products (the results you see it here!).

Surely, The New Velvet Matissime was all inspired by the feel of velvet.  Nicolas Degennes made sure that the product would reflect and absorb light. He got it right! This new foundation guarantees velvety skin all day long, even and huge increase in self-confidence. In order to achieve such a great result, Givenchy obviously had to pick the finest ingredients of Nature and combine them with technology

The Oil of the Pharaohs which was used in ancient Egypt as a universal remedy was selected because of its purifying virtues. The liquid foundation has extracts of cinnamon, burnet and ginger and they all basically boost up that lovely mattifying effect that helps to refine the skin texture and also, tighten pores. The velvety, and the slight burring effects are formed because of the airy silica microbeads which absorb moisture and excess sebum. Last but not least, the pigments! They are covered with amino acids that create an even skin tone that incredibly lasts throughout the day! 

Givenchy launches the first blush with emotional shades which boost up facial expression! The new Prisme Blush is definitely for women with a strong character. It brings an attractive/charming flush to our cheeks without losing the sense of strong femininity

The 8 emotional shades are named as: Passion, Love, Spice, Rite, Spirit, Romantic, Wild and Tender. The palest pearly shade can also be used as a base or as a highlighter that spots areas of the face that naturally gets the light. It’s very simple to be applied guys.. With a brushstroke, it imprints new light and new volume on the face. 

Thank you Givenchy for this amazing trip and a bientôt! Camila x
