Givenchy Prisme Quad in Precious Shimmer

Givenchy Eyeshadow Quad

Prisme Again! Eyeshadow Quartet
Summary: This chic compact contains two different powder textures, both of them very fine, gentle and creamy, for a variety of effects: matte, semi-matte, satiny, iridescent, or pearly shine - choose your weapon! The two matte textures are in the two upper pans of the case and the two iridescent textures are in the two lower pans. The sexy, bi-level mini case also contains three integrated applicators: two shadow shaders and a liner brush.

Precious Shimmers ($49,50) is another item I purchased from the Dandy collection.  Once again, Givenchy products are mini-me size.  This is frustrating because their products are very luxurious and gorgeous.  But, I just can't justify spending $49.50 or recommending it.  Well, unless you have some extra $$$ here and there.

Check out the swatches below.

The two greys had excellent color pay-off.  Pink and gold was so-so on my NC-30 skin.   The metallic sheen isn't as shiny as your typically "shimmer based" shades.  Both grey's combined with MAC's Black Tied or Carbon will make a hot smokey-eye look.  So, there's a couple uses Givenchy Prisme Eyes could go for - if only you can get over the price tag!

One feature that tickled my fancy - it's small and compact.  A perfect pick up and go you can use for eye shadow, highlighter and even lip gloss (along with vaseline).  And the sponge applicators brushes aren't cheap - you can actually navigate through them if you have to.

Ahh, so small and so cute!

Pretty small, huh?  Fits in the palm of my hand.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
