Givenchy Couleur Inense 02 Beige Mousseline & Revlon by Marchesa Nail Appliques Beaded Couture

by - 24 October

3 coats

Givenchy Beige Mousseline is a pinky beige creme. I love nudes like this because they work so much better with my skin tone than nudes with grey tones. The color is beautiful, but Beige Mousseline has an awful formula. This is surprising and
disappointing, since I've loved all the Givenchys I've tried until this
one. It's stringy, streaky, and really thick. Thinning didn't help much with application.

One thing I will say it that it self-levels quite well. I managed to get it to look normal by floating the brush and using very thick coats. If you like this color, please look elsewhere. Wet n Wild Private Viewing and Dior Incognito are along the same vein.

Onto Beaded Couture. So pretty, right?? I suck at applying nail apps, so I can't say whether these were easy to apply or not. I think if you like a design enough, they're worth looking into. The best thing about them is they're not nail polish based, so you can use them for accents and not worry about them drying out.

Givenchy 02 Beige Mousseline retails for $20 and is available at Sephora.

Revlon by Marchesa Beaded Couture retails for $9.99 and is available at most drugstores.
