Event: Re-Opening LEE Store Antwerp

Last thursday I was invited (together with a my friend Natalie) to the re-opening from the LEE Store in Antwerp.
The brand is celebrating 125 years LEE.
So they decided to make-over there stores in big cities in the world.

After Paris, Antwerp was honored to be redesigned.
They made the store with a lot of wood, which I really loved when I entered the new store.
I also love the tiny details like the picture frames, the little guys in LEE outfit and the belts where the clothing racks where hung up.
Some models showed also the new Fall/Winter collection 2014.

There was also a lot of foodies, drinks and there where 2 female dj's for the great music.

Review + Swatches: Givenchy Blush Mémoire de Forme Pop-up Jelly Blush Rose Extravagant

When I saw this blush from the Givenchy Beauty Fall 2014 I was immediately intrigued. 
It is a jelly blush in the color "Rose Extravagant". 

When you open the blush there's a cover before you can see the blush. That's because the blush is very jelly and that you won't spill everything on the table of floor. 
You really have to open the cover very carefully. 

When the cover is opened you see a jelly substance in a really hot pink blush color. 
You only take a little bit on your fingers, because otherwise you look like a clown if you put the color on your cheeks.

You can go for a soft, medium or hard look with this blush. 
It's easy to apply and really smooth and has a nice color of pink like you can see in the picture.
I toned it a little bit down.

The blush costs € 36 ($ 37.00) and is available online and in perfumery's.

Review + Swatches: Givenchy Extravagancia Lip & Eye Pallet

When I saw this Extravagancia palette from the Givenchy Fall 2014 makeup collection, I was immediately in love.
It's really a great palette. It has 4 eye shadows and 1 lipstick in the pallet.
Eye shadows:
-Satiny Brown
- Satiny Purple
- Burnished Gold
- Shimmering Silver

- Luminous Pink

I really loved the eye shadows. They're very shimmery, especially the "Burnished Gold" and the "Shimmering Silver".
The 4 eye shadows are more for an evening look, as you go to a party or a fancy drink.

The lipstick is not that strong, it's more a softer shade of lipstick.
As you can see on the pictures below, for me it's more a nude look on the lips.

The pallet is definitely a must buy, because you can also use it for New Year's Eve.

It costs € 62,50 ($66.00) and is available online and in perfumery's.

Hope you like the pallet as much as I do!
