Think you know your favorite beauty brands? Think again. In this continuing series, we highlight some of our go-to lines. Read on for some interesting tidbits, plus the rundown on the products that made our list of favorites.
Like a killer pair of Acne ankle boots or a cheery green Comme des Garçons wallet, we're big believers in splurging on certain everyday beauty items, because they make us happy every time we see them. That's why we love Givenchy cosmetics. Sure, the ingenious formulas make them a staple in our get-gorgeous routines, but it's their elegant packaging that pushes them into gotta-have territory. From work-of-art perfume bottles to ultra-femme lipsticks with black grosgrain ribbon attached, these products are the undisputed stars of our vanities.
But don't let their pretty faces fool you — these products are high-performing, too. Their legendary Gloss Interdit comes in a rainbow of vibrant colors and is formulated to actually plump your pout. Phenomen'Eyes, our most-loved mascara of all time, comes with a sea-urchin-shaped applicator that seeks out, fattens, and lengthens even your tiniest lashes, for an amazingly wide-eyed ingenue look (trust us, you'll be singing this product's praises from the rooftops!).
