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:

  • This sounds like such a beautiful foundation! Thank you for including swatches, it makes it so much easier to buy online x

    • I agree, swatches help a lot when shopping online. I am glad you liked the review

  • This foundation sounds beautiful. The range seems to be a bit on the light side which is disappointing… It would be great if you could share a photo with the foundation on your face. I love seeing how foundations sit on the skin and the final look x

  • Definitely need to check this out, bet it’s flawless. Love the swatches, super helpful!

  • Made for Madison

    I really should check this out

    This is a great review of this product. I have never heard of it. I will have to look more into it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on it.

  • Teaspoon of Nose

    I love the subtlety of the different shades. Great for matching your skin tone as closely as possible!

  • victoria

    Not much of a make up person but it’s nice to know Givenchy has a makeup range too and they also come in amazing colors. Thanks for sharing.

  • I really want to try this foundation, what a good collection of shades! Sadly nowhere locally sells it and I don’t like to buy things like foundating before having a good test first. I take your word on it that its awesome, If I ever see a counter/store I will be running to it!

  • jossy

    i love Givenchy too, too products looks just great, maybe i should try them

  • Esperanza

    You really do love Givenchy! I will definitely have to try out their products 😀

  • Jake Ferrer

    Wow! This foundation looks so wonderful. Never heard of this brand so i think i would love to try this.

  • The formula is very nice and longevity is a good plus

  • Do you think it would be a good choice for oily skin even if we have a lot of that natural glow?

  • Noelle Lynne

    This looks like a variety of pigments, need to go into Sephora and check them out in person!

  • Ash Neverson

    I didn’t know Givenchy had foundations. This looks like something that I’d love. Unfortunately I don’t see my range of shade there.
