My eyes literally popped out when I saw Glambox’s July edition. It was Givenchy’s exclusive box!!. I was exhilarated since I have never even tried Givenchy before. It is so high end!. Sorry for the delayed review by the way. The box came with an outer cover that said ‘Givenchy Iconic Products’. It looks so classy.
The box came with 4 products, along with bragging rights for getting to own these beauties ♡
1) Noir Couture Mascara : The product comes in the most beautiful bottle. It’s color is black & the shade is 1 Black Satin. The wand is unlike any other I have seen before. It’s a three-balled brush!. It helps in giving clump free, gorgeous looking lashes in just a couple of strokes. The result is very natural looking and nothing over-the-top dramatic. This is already in my makeup bag and am loving it. The sample in the box is 4g while it’s full sized version (8g) is priced at AED 170.
2) Le Rouge Lipstick : I am very much a lipstick lover and this is the product that most excited me in the box. It’s a mini, stylish & luxurious looking, coral pink lipstick. The shade is 202 Rose Dressing. It’s perfect for everyday wear. It is very creamy and feels luxurious & hydrating on the lips. Just one application gives great pigmentation. It’s a soft color that looks so pretty. I wore it for about 12 hours, during which I ate & drank too. I found that for about 7 – 8 hours, the color stays on and then it fades into a pink stain on the lips.
The matte box it came in is super hot. On sliding out an inside compartment, I found the little beauty wrapped in paper which had the words Le Rouge printed on it. Loved the way it’s packaged. The sample in the box is 1.5g while it’s full sized version (3.4g) is priced at AED 170.
3) Let Soin Noir Cream : This cream is nothing like I have seen before. First of all, this face cream is a pearlescent black in color!. It contains two exceptional algae, that is known for it’s resistance against extreme climatic conditions. It helps preserve & revitalize skin’s life forces. On application, skin just drinks up this cream & looks instantly plump, replenished & youthful. What an amazing & potent skin formula!. I love it. The sample in the box is 5 ml while it’s full sized version (50 ml) is priced at a whopping AED 1,685!
4) Hydra Sparkling First Step Luminescence Moisturizing lotion : This is the only product in the box that isn’t in their signature black packaging. It comes in a blue little bottle and even though the product looks blue too, it is in fact translucent when you take it out on to the skin. It is intensely moisturizing and quite luxurious. The sample in the box is 15 ml while it’s full sized version (200 ml) is priced at AED 165.
The box didn’t contain any full sized product or vouchers, but can I even complain?. Absolutely not!. Overall, what an amazing box that gave me the chance to experience four iconic Givenchy products!. Glambox did choose a good mix of both skincare & cosmetics for this box!
