Givenchy Les Mini Prismes Travel Exclusive

Saturday, 9 June 2012

I have to admit that one of the best parts of a holiday abroad is actually the bit before the flight...World Duty Free make-up browsing and shopping. Cosmetic brands always have travel exclusive make-up kits and sets which you can only buy in World Duty Free (not counting online). 

Givenchy have a travel-exclusive mini sized tower palette in the shape of a jewellery box. The top compartment is magnetic and you pull to open the rest of the drawers. Each compartment consists of 4 mini raised square shaped products with the exception of the last which contains the brushes. 

There are a total of 4 levels, the first has eyeshadow, the second face powder, the third blush and the fourth applicators, one for blush/powder and the other for eyeshadow. It also includes a small mirror, useful for applying your make-up on the go!

I have never used Givenchy cosmetics before so it was great to try out something new. The price for this kit at the time of purchase was £36.50. I really like the eyeshadow colours, I found that they were pigmented and one sweep was enough colour. I like to wear them over Urban Decay's primer potion which helps to keep the eyeshadow on for longer and prevent creasing. The face powder blends nicely, it is light and I dust it lightly across my T-Zone whilst all the colours are mixed. The blush colours look natural - they are matte and not shimmery. I haven't used the blush yet or the applicators that come with it though. 

Overall, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it to you. Have you visited the airport recently and did you buy this kit? What do you think of it?
