Givenchy The Power Of Color Collection for Spring 2019 is all about the Pantone colour of the year – ‘Living Coral’. This comes part of the ‘colour therapy’ that we all need to leave the winter gloom behind and indulge in the elixir of youth and new life inspired by the colours of the rainbow. The Power of Color visions an optimistic and proud vision of a 2019 spring bursting with energy. It comes as an aide to give a healthy boost and wake up with a ‘pop attitude’. The Power of Color Collection has some beautiful formulas and shades for spring including Prisme Blush in Limited Edition and permanent shade, Dual Liners, Le Rouge, Le Rouge Perfecto Le, and Le Vernis – all limited edition products. Nicolas Degennes is a genius and I have always admired his work, this collection is no different.
There are two versions of Prime Blush available this year – the limited edition Prisme Blush No. 10 which exudes energy reminiscent of the hue of orange shades, and the permanent shade Prisme Blush No. 2 Love, like a bouquet of roses to say ‘I love you’. In the pictures, I have limited edition Prisme Blush No. 10 which are two beautiful orange and pearlescent springtime shades decorated with the legendary 4G emblem. The light shade highlights the skin’s radiance, while the more intense shade colours the complexion, producing an instant healthy glow.
Prisme Blush is creamy, light, and long-lasting formula which four shades featured in a pair of two-toned harmonies. The darker, matte shade is very pigmented while the lighter variation is a pearlescent highlighter offering an almost wet effect which softens the strongest colour or brings a radiant glow when the two shades are blended.
Dual Liners ( I still love and use the one released with Mystic Glow Collection for Christmas 2018 which I reviewed here) works as a double stroke of colour, the thin line works as an eyeliner and the eyeshadow are revealed with a single ultra-gliding motion for extra-easy application. The two distinct shades are curated to enhance the colour of the iris and brighten the eyelid.
The creamy texture blends nicely and is long lasting. The shades and their intensity definitely evokes the collection’s electro-pop inspiration. The Dual Liners in this collection is available in limited edition shades – Dual Liner No 3 Dynamic in green and blue, Dual Liner No 4 Passionate in rose and mauve hue with orange accents.
Le Rouge is customized with a shaded colour scheme of pinks while enclosing a bold orangish-red called Le Rouge No 332 Fearless. The light, creamy, sculpting formula plumps up the lips with a single stroke while the hyaluronic acid moisturizes and locks in moisture to keep the lips comfortable.
Le Rouge Perfecto Le, the same favourite formula of mine which I have reviewed in the past many times, in tangy shade Le Rouge Perfecto No. 5 Spirited. The formula reacts to the lips pH to offer a personalized color nuance means it will have a slightly different shade on per individual base don their lips pH.
Le Vernis No 12 Strong is inspired by the blue hue of a night sky which depicts the depth the entire The Power of Color collection has.
Overall, a beautiful collection and it does inspires me with its spring vibes to include more colour and fun into everyday makeup.
