Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow review and photos.

Since my success with Givenchy 7 Gris Organza Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow (here), I decided I needed to explore other colors from the range.  The two colors that caught my eye were 2 Beige Mousseline and 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows ($23 USD/ 4g).  Givenchy 2 Beige Mousseline is a neutral soft brown matte color with delicate silver shimmers throughout the formula. A beautiful color in its own right, however, the color was so close to my natural coloring, it almost seemed as if I was wearing nothing on my lids (reminded me of Nars Voyage Eyeshadow).  On the other hand, Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin proved to be quite a versatile color.  Pairing this sparkling treasure on top of any matte eyeshadow will add subtle dimension and interest to your look.

Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin:

Everything I stated about Givenchy 7 Gris Organza can be applied to Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin.  The sparkles are so finely milled, they feel completely undetectable during application and wear. The formula used to bind the sparkles to the clear base is outstanding.  There is ZERO sparkle fallout with all three shades I tested.  In addition, upward sparkle migration to the crease was so minimum, I feel silly for even broaching the subject.  During the 11 hours I wore Givenchy 01 Top Coat Blanc Satin, I did not experience any fading or sparkle fallout.

Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow can be applied over any powder or cream eyeshadow, depending on the look you are going for.  The delicate silver sparkles pairs very nicely with a variety of eyeshadow colors.  In addition, I found the silver sparkles complimentary to both warm and cool skin tones.

Application of Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin:

Application is fairly easy and straight forward.  Since Blanc Satin is a topper shade, I prefer to use a synthetic brush as opposed to using my fingers (they are too large to give me precise sparkle placement). Waiting the obligatory 30 seconds between layers is especially important, to avoid uneven patches. Personally, one layer is more than sufficient for my liking.

When Givenchy 01 Top Coat Blanc Satin was placed on top of Givenchy 7 Gris Organza, the overall effect was enchanting as opposed to outrageous; after all, this is Givenchy we are talking about–not Illamasqua (not that there is anything wrong with Illamasqua).

Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin can look very chic if applied straight to the lids (primed with an eyeshadow base first) with just some mascara and a fantastic red lipstick.  This look would be ideal for individuals with smaller lid space to really accentuate their eyes.

Givenchy 2 Beige Mousseline:

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have since returned Givenchy 2 Beige Mousseline, not for lack of performance, but simply because the color did not suit my coloring.  Luckily, I have gotten in the habit of photographing all my cosmetics before I use them, so I have a fairly good shot of what the color looks like and how it wears.

Givenchy 2 Beige Mousseline would look spectacular for those who prefer a “no-makeup” makeup look. On me, this particular shadow was lost in translation; I was expecting a bit more of a contrast to my skin tone.  However, despite my experience, 2 Beige Mousseline would compliment lighter skinned beauties…beautifully 🙂

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Givenchy 1 Top Coat Blanc Satin Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow is an excellent topper shade.  The longevity, smooth lightweight texture and lack of sparkle fallout demonstrates excellent quality.  I cannot stress how impressed I am with Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows; I foresee a few more colors in my future.  Up next, Estee Lauder Decadent Pure Color Envy Lipstick review.  Be well and stay safe.

  1. Holy cow…this shadow right up my alley. I went to Sephora over the weekend , but my store was sold out. Any chance you will be reviewing the other colors? You have such pretty eyes.

    • Hello Sandra,
