GIVENCHY Holiday 2023 Makeup Collection

Givenchy Holiday 2023 Makeup Collection review swatches

These days, Givenchy Beauty almost feels like an underdog in the couture beauty niche, but I still pay attention whenever there is a new collection from the brand. The Givenchy Holiday 2023 Collection is simple but quite well done in terms of composition and colors. I am glad to see a festive eye palette in this collection not to mention the quality of the eyeshadows has improved. 

Givenchy Le 9 de Eyeshadow Palette Le 9.10 ($67, Bloomingdale's)

The color story is about rich jewel tones of pink and orange. The palette has a cool light brown for transition and a couple of brightening shades as well.

Now, these are still not the very best quality eyeshadows in my opinion, but the overall quality has improved a lot compared to my other Givenchy eye palette which is just terrible. It is a shame since there is something about these 9-pan eye palettes' color stories. If you expect buttery smooth colors with an intense payoff, you will probably be disappointed. For me, this particular consistency and texture are rather nice because I can easily blend these colors into wearable bright looks. 

Givenchy Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Liquid Highlighter Rose Extravaganza ($42, Sephora)

If I have to recommend just one product from this collection, this new liquid highlighter would be it. And if you are someone who doesn't like glitters in your highlighter, you will be pleased with this one because this has a smooth fluid glow. It's quite versatile as well. I can wear this over my foundation before setting it with powder or wear it on top of my complexion that's already set with powder. I can also mix it with my foundation. 

Givenchy Le Rouge Sheer Matte Lipstick 16 Nude Boisé ($44, Saks Fifth Avenue)

16 Nude Boisé is an existing shade from this excellent sheer matte lip range with smoothing effects. It is a perfectly posh nude color with complex undertones. This year's limited edition packaging is also timeless and gorgeous. I have to say it is so much better and more practical than last year's (which looked like a ski puffer).

There is a limited edition setting/finishing powder with shimmers but I did not pick it up since I have more than a few tubs of Givenchy Prisme Libre powder. It looks so pretty and I am still tempted, though.


And here is a makeup look that I put together using the Givenchy Holiday 2023 Makeup Collection:

Not from the holiday makeup collection, but I also highly recommend Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Concealer and Loose Blushes. I love wearing this flexible and skin-like concealer as a foundation and the loose blushes provide a perfectly blurred flush to the cheeks.

Currently, some of these items from the collection are on sale at retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales:


I like this collection! We've seen a lot of neutrals from this year's holiday offerings but I love having a colorful assortment that is still quite sophisticated and wearable.
