Tag: Givenchy Prisme Blush review


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. Givenchy The Power of Color Collection – all the products are available at Holt Renfrew while Le Rouge and Le Rouge Perfecto is also available at Sephora.ca.

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.

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.
