Givenchy Make Up, Beauty & Perfume Now at Sephora Switzerland
Great news for all you Givenchy make up, beauty and perfume lovers! Givenchy has now launched at Sephora Switzerland! From now you can find the exclusive Givenchy brand at Sephora Switzerland.
The House of Givenchy was founded by Hubert de Givenchy in 1952 and has been regarded as one of the top French and indeed international brands ever since. I went along to the SEPHORA launch event of Givenchy at the Papiersaal in Zurich and was able to test out the make up and see all the new ranges. The whole area was decked up with different stations where you could look at products close up, ask questions and try the products out.
The brand’s three bestsellers which are the Le Rouge lipstick collection, the Volume Disturbia Mascara and the Teint Couture City Balm foundation were all on display and we were able to try them out. Luckily there were make up artists on hand, so we also managed to get the experts to show us how best to apply each product and tell us which type of products they thought worked best with our skin and complexion.
I had make up artist Nevil from Berlin assisting me and he chose a rose quartz eyeshadow which I would have never thought of. Instead of making me look as if I had red eyes and hadn’t slept for a week, it had the opposite effect and actually opened up my eyes so they looked wider and bigger. Nevil also introduced me to the Volume Disturbia Mascara which I absolutely loved and I’m sure this is going to be a firm favourite.
There were a huge variety of lipsticks on display – the choice and colours were amazing.
The three most popular products were all created by Nicolas Degennes, the artistic director for makeup and colour at Givenchy, who joined the launch event in Zurich via Video Conference due to the current situation with the Corona Virus.
Along with all the beautiful make up there was also some beautiful looking food too – along with a drop or two of champagne. 🙂
If you’re not familiar with SEPHORA, it is in fact a pioneer in innovative beauty from when it started out around 50 years ago. The key thing about SEPHORA is that as a customer you are actively encouraged to view, test, try out and ask questions about over 15,000 products from 250 different brands. They also offer special personalised services and you can get expert beauty and expertise from the SEPHORA online website 24/ 7.
SEPHORA is part of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the first global group for luxury products, and is now available in 35 countries. The addition of the premium Givenchy make up is a great addition to its range. On the perfume front, the fragrance Givenchy L’Interdit, which originally came out in 1957 is being reinvented in 2020 as “L’Interdit Eau de Parfum” – a very feminine interpretation of the original scent with notes of orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine and patchouli.
All the new Givenchy makeup products are now available at the SEPHORA boutiques and in Manor in Geneva, Basel, Lugano, Zurich (and at ShopVille Zurich) and in Bern.
It was a great event and my thanks to Givenchy and SEPHORA for the make up samples and to Nevil for giving me the make over! So next time you’re out and about in town to pop by your nearest SEPHORA store and check out the new Givenchy range!
