Givenchy Le Makeup Must-HavesDespite not being as widely-known as other brands, Givenchy also does travel-retail exclusives, and this is one of them. Givenchy Le Makeup Must-Haves is a travel palette containing the basic things you might need on the go – blush, lipstick, eyeshadow, eye liner and powder/highlighter.

The eyeshadows belong to the Le Prisme Yeux range and come in four shades: Showy Black (01), New Look Mauve (02), Smart Nude (10) and Designer White (16). The blush quad – Le Prisme Blush – comes with four complimentary shades (peach, baby pink, rosy pink and raspberry) that can be used individually or swirled together for an overall glow. The lip shades belong to the Rouge Interdit formula of sheer, satiny lipsticks, in this case Enchanting Beige (02) and Rose Desire (11). Finally, the powder – Le Prisme Visage (Mat) in Pink Velvet (87) also brings coordinating shades designed to work as one.

This palette comes in a sturdy, luxurious compact and is certainly an interesting addition to a frequent traveller’s repertoire. My only gripe are the lip colours, which are a bit too sheer for my taste. However, if you are a fan of more discreet shades you will certainly find these lipsticks a welcome feature of the palette.

I purchased the Givenchy Le Makeup Must-Haves compact at London Heathrow airport for £35.25 (roughly $55 in today’s rates), which I think is a pretty decent price. What do you reckon? Click on the pictures for larger versions – all shots were taken in natural light.
