Givenchy Croisière Summer 2014 Sneak Peek!

Givenchy Croisière summer 2014 review

Hey everyone! This is going to be a short and sweet post about new Givenchy releases, notably Givenchy Croisière summer 2014 (availability in Belgium: April 23rd)! Let’s skip the usual lengthy Sunny commentary track and feast our eyes on this fun collection!

Givenchy Ange ou Démon Le Secret Edition Croisière

Givenchy launches a limited edition Ange ou Démon each year. If I am not mistaken however, it seems like the first year this fragrance is actually part of the summer collection! The coolest part about Givenchy Ange ou Démon Le Secret Edition Croisière (RRP: 67 euros) is that there is some golden shimmer in it (you can see it at the bottom of the bottle here)! What a new way to sparkle!

Givenchy Poudre Terre Exotique

Givenchy Terre Exotique Healthy Glow Powder (16 grams/0.56 oz. RRP: 57,50 euros) is destined to be a star! Better photos and thoughts about it will be up soon. This talc-free formula is extremely smooth and lightweight. It comes in one shade, Douce Croisière, which is the second shade in Givenchy‘s 4-shade Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder line-up (read: there is a good chance that fairer girls will like it).

Givenchy Corail Tentation Ombre Couture

Givenchy Corail Tentation Ombre Couture (11. RRP: 24 euros). This is a shade that makes a splash! Try to pair it with neutral bronzy shades. If you want to think outside the box, it is fun with purple as well!

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Waterproof 5 Turquoise Obsession

Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof Turquoise Obsession (5. RRP: 31,50 euros). It is pretty bold for Givenchy to go for completely opposite shades such as coral/orange and blue! It can be worn on its own or layered over a regular black for more intensity.

Givenchy Fruit Défendu, Acajou Précieux Le Rouge

There are two Le Rouges in this collection, including Fruit Défendu (313) and Acajou Précieux (314). My personal favorite? The bright orange Fruit Défendu of course!

Here is a quick swatch of Terre Exotique Healthy Glow PowderAcajou Précieux, Fruit Défendu, and Corail Tentation:

If Corail Tentation were a lipstick, I would snatch it up, no questions asked!

Givenchy Poudre Première

A new loose powder, Givenchy Poudre Première Mat & Translucent-finish Loose Powder will be added to the permanent line-up (more thoughts will follow).

Givenchy Irrésistible L'Eau en Rose

Givenchy Very Irrésistible L’Eau en Rose (RRP for 50ml: 74 euros. Already available) is a fruity-rosy summer scent. I have the impression that this is a fragrance that is easy to wear and easy to love, though I might be biased because there is rose in it!

Is anything calling your name here?

  • Judith

    That setting powder looks like a silica powder… I’ll wait for your review. That mascara is so bold!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, the first three ingredients include talc, silica, and synthetic fluorphlogopite, so you’re right!

  • Lily

    Oh my, that powder looks so beautiful! Gorgeous photos here :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Lily! I know I will have major problems dipping my finger in it ahhhh

  • Emae

    Those lipsticks!!!! You know I want them. :) Are these limited edition? :(

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Emae, yup they are! They don’t come in limited-edition packaging, but as far as I know, the shades won’t stay!

  • Sofia

    I must admit that I’ve just realised that I’ve never bought anything by Givenchy (tempted a few times, yes). It must be a mixture of the fact that this collection does look fun, and also because of your great photos that I’m loving it all!

    PS Nice looking quiche there too in the background 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, yeah and then I ate some of that quiche! Can’t wander about discovering new stuff on an empty stomach!

      • Sofia


  • syrena85

    Collection is quite interesting but most of it are not my shades at all :-( well that’s maybe a good think. It’s already available at Harrods (saw it there like two weeks ago). I think the only thing that has caught my eye was the bronzer and nothing else, but knowing Guerlain will release it’s collection soon in UK I’ll skip the Givenchy one.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha that’s great news for your wallet! The Givenchy bronzer is much lighter though! I think you might have to base your decision on your skin tone.

  • BeautiesEva

    the terre exotique 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know. What a beauty!

  • Lys

    That quiche in the last picture is definitely calling my name… (Oh wauw, I’m so funny!) I have the pink Very Irrésistible perfume and it’s one of my favourites so I’m curious about the new one!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha yeah it called mine, too :p

      I bought the Eau Sensual version some years ago. Still love it, but I can’t wear it in this weather :)

  • 38noodles

    Can’t wait to try these out! I’m gonna skip on the mascara, since I really can’t justify another coloured one, but everything else has ‘I needs!!!’ stamped all over it!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha it’s always nice to see a collection that really speaks for you (although it’s a different story for the wallet)!

  • Sara_BeauTime

    Now that solves the Mystery, I was wondering why there is a color number and name on the Bronzer if there is only one shade of that. Everything calls my name but the water proof blue mascara, since I don’t wear water proof ones. I am very excited about the perfumes too and check them out once they are available. That creme eye shadow is so interesting lol, I would use it on the cheeks 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sara, yup that’s why it has a number on it. I’m glad they picked Douce Croisiere though. I feel I have seen many darker bronzers this season, and it’s great for fairer girls to have more options!

      I haven’t tried to use a cream shadow on the cheeks! I wonder how that will work!

  • Bella

    What lovely colours. I have yet to try anything Givenchy.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Bella, you should take a look at Le Rouge! I think that’s a good place to start!

  • Icaria

    I’ve had a mascara in that color and it didn’t do much for my eyes so that’s a definite pass for me but that bronzer is amazingly gorgeous!!! If it weren’t for the factd that I already have “a few” and that there’s another calling my name a little more loudly this spring I’d totally go for it! Oh how I wish I could buy them all!!! Can’t wait to read your review of L’Eau de Rose. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, haha that’s true. I like bronzers, but I don’t tend to want to collect them! L’Eau en Rose is going to be perfect for summer! I just know it :)

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Ooh, all so very tempting! That bronzer looks too pretty to use and how crazy is that mascara? So crazy, I might just have to try it :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha I had some layered on my black mascara that day. I could see a hint of something different! I wonder how it’ll look on its own though! I’ll keep you posted!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I have been wanting to try their lipsticks for a while now, thanks for the gorgeous swatches again. That Healthy Glow Powder looks delectable, I want :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You’re welcome, Jacqueline! You should definitely give Le Rouge a go! Such a low-maintenance high-impact formula!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    It’s the second shade? Hmmm then I have that one LOL! Guess I don’t need this one then, but DANG it’s just so pretty though! I like that they went blue with mascara and coral on lips-that looks really good together for summer actually!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yup, it’s the second shade (I think it’s Premiere Croisiere, Douce Croisiere, Ambre Croisiere, and Extreme Croisiere)! Orange has been so big these past couple of years, but I won’t complain!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Oooh, Corail Tentation sure looks puuuuurty… *stares*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’d looove a shade like that on my cheeks and lips!

  • birtegovarts

    Looks very promising, especially the Corail Tentation Ombre Couture!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You should check it out, girl! I don’t think there are a lot of coral cream shadows out there!

  • Larie

    OOh, those lipsticks! And I LOVE blue mascara, actually 😀

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried ange ou demon before…will have to give a sniff. The bottle is pretty 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Larie, I think this collection is very much your thing! Ange ou Demon isn’t my personal favorite Givenchy fragrance, but I have a girlfriend or two who adore the line!

  • Syirael

    OK, Sunny, we need to talk. There is WAY TOO MUCH gorgeousness in this post, from both the products and the photos. I had to get up from my laptop for second, walk around my living room, take some deep breaths and sit back down before I could type this comment. 😛 I can’t even figure out where to start with all these lovely things!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha sorry, Syl! Although, here is a dumb question for you: how do seasonal releases work in NZ? Do you guys get “summer” collections the same time we do? Because that won’t work too well, right?

      • Syirael

        Yep, we just get whatever’s coming out when it comes out, so the seasons are a bit jumbled. Most houses release their stuff close to the northern hemisphere releases, I think. MAC takes a bit longer – we only just got A Fantasy Of Flowers…

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Wow, that almost doesn’t make sense (or maybe it does. Hmm). MAC takes forever to be available here as well! It depends on the collection, but sometimes I’m like “wait a minute, didn’t I read about this on US blogs 2 months ago?”

  • Jaa

    I totally agree with Syirael! Everything looks so gorgeous here! I’m really falling for the healthy glow powder and the blue mascara!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jaa, I’ve tried the formula (in Ambre Croisiere, which is one shade darker than this) so I know it’s good! It’ll break my heart to dip my finger in. I’ll have to be mentally prepared to swatch it!

  • Lena L

    The Healthy Glow powder looks so pretty!
    And I would be interested in testing the new rose edition of the fragrance. I like how Givenchy does roses. 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lena, I only smelled it on paper so far, but I think we’ll get along well in summer! It is one of those things you can spray on in summer without having to worry about it being overwhelming.

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    !! the glow powder. lol brands always embellish their highlight/glow product and it just makes me want them all but i only like…2 max 😛

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha yeah the pattern is so pretty! I will have to brace myself to put my finger/brush on it!

  • Teri

    Man, I really loved that day! Beauty and food is just my favourite combo :p.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I think it’s pretty much everyone’s favorite combo LOL

  • Whitney

    That is the coolest looking mascara I’ve seen!it looks like a sea urchin!!! And the lipstick packages… *droools*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha it’s interesting indeed! You are supposed to push your lashes up from the roots with the wand. I still have to give it a proper go. I’ll keep you posted!

  • Dovey

    Hi Sunny,

    Everything here is gorgeous! Loving the compact, especially :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dovey, I don’t really want to swatch or use that thing! It’s too pretty!

  • Liz

    Oh my lord, that glow powder is making me feel faint. Want!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know. It’s SO. PRETTY.

  • Makeup Morsels

    Ohhhh Givenchy, why are you so good at packaging EVERYTHING? There isn’t a single thing here that hasn’t made its way onto my spring wishlist LOL. The perfume might just be my favorite….that flacon is just calling my name. And the gold shimmer! Ackkk it has MM written all over it.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I think your wallet is in MAJOR trouble 😉

  • Nikki P.

    I foresee a huge dent in my wallet with this collection!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha you might have to prioritize!

  • lyn

    OMG, that highlighting powder is gorgeous! Bad girl… I don’t need another highlighter.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lyn, this is more like a bronzer! I think the shade will be great for fairer girls!

  • Shari

    I think I’ll be picking up my first ever Givenchy lipstick and product! :) I blame you and your sneak peeks Sunny!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha sorry, Shari! Are you eyeing that orange, too? 😉

  • Dominique33

    I picked up Fruit Défendu today ( not a huge fan of orange shades ), well it’s so bright and vibrant. I love the texture and it’s like wearing mango on my lips ! Great !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, I’m glad to hear you like it! Le Rouge is really a pretty great formula!

      • Dominique33

        Yes definitely, it’s one of the best formula ever I think.

  • Aurélie Bekaert

    gorgeous bronzer wow! Maybe a tad too much shimmer for me… Will you post swatches of the collection? X

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Aurelie, I have some pieces that I will share in detail with you!

      • Aurélie Bekaert

        Yey! Can’t wait tot see yout thoughts on it! 😉

  • Christina

    Oh wow, the glow powder looks gorgeous! I shy away from bronzers and complexion boosters in general because they’re never right for my really fair skin, but this looks promising. I can’t wait for it to hit U.S. shores!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Christina, I am really glad to see a great option for fairer girls as well! I’ll test this out further and let you know how it works!

  • Shayne♥

    Givenchy Terre Exotique Healthy Glow Powde is so so so pretty :) im looking forward to that. also are their lipstick scents strong? been wanting to try givenchy lipsticks but i think i read in temptalia that it has a strong scent.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Shayne, Le Rouge has a very light floral scent! Rouge Interdit has a stronger one, but Le Rouge is not too scented for me.

  • popsicle13

    glow powder looks very gorgeous ! and loose powder also very interesting .

    omg im excited

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Oh you should be! I’ll write about everything as soon as I can. I’ve been wearing the loose powder for the past few days and oh my god, is it NOT Photoshop in a jar!
