Givenchy’s virtual world on gaming site Roblox has been given a festive makeover.
The Givenchy Beauty House has been transformed on the metaverse platform into a ‘Winter Wonderland’, bringing the brand’s 2022 Holiday Collection to life.
The French brand’s virtual make-up station has been turned into a chic chalet where users can pick from five new festive make-up looks for their avatar.
The digital looks have been created with products from the brand’s Holiday Collection, including Le 9.08 Givenchy Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette.
Users can also win an exclusive prize by striking a pose with their chosen look on the swimming-pool-turned-ice-skating-rink.

A frosted 4G treasure hunt will also give gamers the opportunity to win silver padded earmuffs inspired by the packaging of Givenchy’s Prisme Libre and Le Rouge Interdit fragrances.
The brand has added other luxury twists, such as transforming its virtual dance floor into an igloo and covering its L’Interdit fragrance-themed underground station in snow.
A small husky will also welcome players into the ‘Winter Wonderland’.
The LVMH-owned beauty brand originally launched its metaverse store on Roblox in June – the company’s first foray into the gaming website.
The Givenchy Beauty House platform included different virtual areas inspired by the brand's heritage.
The virtual gardens showcased its origins, while the Irresistible dance floor was inspired by one of its fragrances.
