Givenchy Candide Garden Quad Spring 2011

Givenchy's   Candide Garden is their LE quad for Spring. It  features 4 great colors that are very me, and I find myself using the deep brown and  light peach a lot right now and saving the green for hotter, (self) tanner  days.

 I know many think with quads, that  the idea is to use all 4 shades together. I have never thought that way. No idea why, but to me when looking at a quad, I need to like the shades individually to be interested and I often wear quad shades  only 2 at a time, 3 at most.  I  pretty much never use all 4.

 These colors are very summery and the shades  go on lighter than they look in the pan  and blend easily.  The compact is tiny enough to stash easily in any bag , to have it handy for after beach or pool day touch ups as well as simply mid day workweek ones.

Hi Ling, It is very summery, but isn't fall still sort of summery warm there?
