You might have some hints about few of my favorite brands by now if you are following my blog and social handles. Givenchy is one of my favorite brands, whether it is their formula, packaging, staying power, performance, I love everything about them. I know the products I am going to write about are not new launches but they have been in the market for some time and are still available if you want to grab these. It is the perfect time to look and buy these as there are few more weeks left for the summer. I was sent these Givenchy Summer products for reviewing a few days back and I am already wishing for a longer summer. Nicolas Degennes is the creative mind behind the Summer 2017 Collection.
Givenchy Prisme Blush (CAD $55 excl taxes) is the reinvention of the original Prisme blush. The blushes are compacted into the shape of the legendary prisms. The formula is light powder and easy to use. The compact holds two carefully selected shades that complement each other. The palest pearly shade provides the light which can be used as a base where the color is applied or as a highlighter to add dimension by spotlighting the areas of the face that catch the light naturally like the top of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the temples (starting above the eyebrow roots). The darker shade gives a healthy radiant glow and can be used on the apples of the cheeks.
No 1 Passion
No 4 Rite
Prisme Blush has a new nomadic compact case which is a perfectly geometrical rectangle of shiny, lacquered jet-black. It is stamped with the seal of the 4G and embellished with the iconic Couture metal stud. Inside the compact case is a brush and has the perfect density to pick up a generous brushful of powder and a great travel companion too. The angled shape of the brush is designed to structure the face and has a dual function, which is it can smooth with the long side, or draw with the tip. The Blushes and swatches in the pictures below are Shades No 1 Passion and No 4 Rite. Black Tahitian PEarl Powder helps provide smoothness and provides radiance. Synthetic Pigments provide sparkling colors and a radiant matte finish. Lauroyl and Lysine adds ease of application, even ness and great staying power of the product. This lasted on me for over 8 hours.

It has moisturizing and the texture is easy to wear. The Glossy Oils and silicone resin provide extreme brilliance and plumping effect.

The lipstick has light reflecting color which nourishes and hydrates the lips with the power of antioxidants. The packaging is in a black and silver tube adorned with a ribbon at one end that unlocks this beautiful product. The texture is fine and very spreadable like it melts over the lips.
These products are beautiful and have been on a continuous rotation since some time. The quality and results are amazing. They are available for purchase at Sephora.
