Givenchy created two limited edition palettes for QVC, the Iconic Stud and Leatherette. I decided to get the Iconic Stud because the palette compact itself looked prettier to me and so did the shades inside. This quad is a beauty – from the shades to the feel to the performance, it’s a real winner!

PRODUCT DETAILS & CLAIMS…
Couture coordination. Elegant and luxurious, this eye shadow palette from Givenchy includes four specially selected shades to give you plenty of styling options. The couture-inspired case infuses a bit of luxury into your everyday.
Givenchy Iconic Stud Palette
The actual compact this quad comes in is very weighty and well made. It’s a little piece of art, if you ask me. I chose the Iconic Stud palette for how it looked. The Leatherette looks pretty too, but this one called my name.
Inside are four gorgeous, wearable shades. You get a blue based gray matte, a deeper brown matte, a tan matte, and a rose sparkle shade.
They also include a mini duo-ended shadow brush, which I honestly never used and already lost.
The shades are really pretty, but look different than what QVC shows on their website.
Here is what my palette looks like (left) compared to what the QVC palette looks like (right):
As you can see, there is a difference, but it’s still gorgeous and I love the shades.

I really like this quad. I think it’s a great everyday sort of quad to play with. If you really love simple, neutral eye looks, this will get the job done. you can wear the bottom left shade all over the lid, the top right shade in the crease and/or outer corner. Then use the top left shade as a smokey liner. If you want some sparkle, tap on the bottom right shade and you’re good to go!
I’ve been using the two browns as crease/transitions shades, and using the sparkle shade a lot. I pair this palette with other shadows/palettes I have, but I have worn it completely on its own.
The texture of these shadows is really superb. The mattes have a velvety, creamy smooth texture. The sparkle shade has that packed sparkle pigment-like texture that is similar to the ones offered by Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury.
They blend like a dream! They were so easy to work with and effortless to apply. They’re also really nicely pigmented, with the exception of the sparkle shade which is meant to be more of a topper shade and not fully opaque.
Overall, I find this to be a really luxurious little palette that I’d recommend as a great gift to give (in fact, I gifted my boss this as part of her Christmas present). They are limited edition, and only found at QVC, so get online and get yours before they’re gone!
