Givenchy is one of my favorite beauty brands, and I have mentioned it so many times in my blog posts and Yes, I am not going to stop saying that, ever. There is not a single product which I have used from Givenchy has ever disappointed me, this not only makes me happy but also raises the expectations bar from the products which are either new launches or which I have yet to try from the house. Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation is not new but it is new to Canada. Givenchy Le Make-Up is bringing its three most popular foundations to Canada: Matissime Velvet, Photo’Perfexion, and Teint Couture Balm. In this post, I am reviewing the Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation along with the swatches of 7 of the total 12 shades available.
Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation is inspired by digital imaging. It recreates the perfect skin quality obtained with digital touch-ups while remaining completely natural. Givenchy's exclusive, SkinPerfector Complex, acts like a digital eraser and Lighting Complex, adjusts the luminosity to the contours of the face to erase irregularities, imperfections, and fine lines. This foundation is available in 12 shades for all skin types.
Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation is a beautiful foundation with a creamy and smooth texture. The texture is not very runny and not very thick, just the perfect consistency to make the blending like a dream. The formula is great with some great technological as well as scientific advances to provide coverage with skincare benefits. This foundation is one of those which just makes you forget that you are wearing any foundation on your skin, it is very lightweight and just disappears into the skin. The coverage is very natural, light to medium. You may or may not need a concealer based on your needs. With age, I prefer more of a natural finish and I am not afraid of showing few of my spots or imperfections when I have them. This foundation did blur my problem areas, and the finish was very natural. The coverage is quite good, it made my skin look very healthy and radiant, making it even and smooth.
The foundation is buildable from light to medium coverage. The longevity of the foundation is great, it stays on the whole day for about 8-10 hours on my skin with a primer and about 7-8 hours without primer without fading or creasing on my combination skin. It does not emphasize my dry areas and does not make my oily areas of the face oilier, the whole face looks radiant. As mentioned earlier, it is very light that it gives an impression to myself that I am not wearing any foundation, the other good thing is it does not breaks me out and does not emphasize my pores. The areas near the nose and jawline stay the way like it was just applied, and does not crease. My skin looks more even, natural, radiant, like a better version of my skin, who would not want that, right? It works well with or without powder over it for my combination skin type, the skin has that natural healthy glow without looking oily and with light to medium coverage.
The packaging of the foundation is in a heavy glass bottle with pump dispenser. The packaging looks beautiful with the rose gold Givenchy logo on the cap. The shades I have swatched below are described here:
1 Perfect Ivory – Light with neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones
2 Perfect Petal – light with red undertones
4 Perfect Vanilla – medium with neutral balance of pink & yellow undertones
5 Perfect Praline – medium with warm caramel undertones
5.5 Perfect Cashew – medium-dark with caramel undertones
6 Perfect Honey – medium-dark neutral balance of pink & yellow undertones
7 Perfect Gold – medium-dark with red undertones
Overall, an amazing addition to my foundations and indeed a favorite. I highly recommend you to check this one out for the formula, texture, coverage, longevity, for that natural healthy glowy skin.
