Givenchy Summer 2012 Make-Up

I usually don't bother much with press releases but this particular one caught my attention for two reasons.

1. It's Givenchy whose products I absolutely love.
2. It's all about the 'nudes'. 

The highlight of the collection are these two iridescent cream eye shadows of course as they seem to highly resemble the ones Chanel brought out recently. Having seem a few of their swatches, I believe they are more soft and mousse-like compared to Chanel's, with a sprinkle of fine silver shimmer injected through them. 
Aah yes, the 'magic' Eye Kajal that can be used almost everywhere on the face, not only in the lower waterline and the inner corner of the eyes to brighten but also as a lip liner, illuminator and eye shadow primer. Now we know how the product formula for each of these products varies significantly so we'll have to see how it lives up to the claim. I have my eyes glued on this baby!
I have recently been more into grown up nail shades and this glossy but intriguing concoction of coffee and chocolate brown should look pretty classy I believe, on my tanned olive skin tone. 

Will you be picking up anything from this collection?

the packaging of the luminiscent cream eyeshadow is beautiful - shame it's way out of my price range!
