I’ve been obsessing about Givenchy’s summer collection ever since I first saw the promo photos. Now that it’s arrived at Sephora, I finally had the chance to swatch it.
Givenchy is best known for its “Prisme” face powders, and the summer collection features two limited edition shades ($45). If you can bring yourself to use them (they’re beautifully embossed with plumeria), I think Island Sun is going to be an all-over “hint of color” powder, similar to Chanel’s Poudre Douce. Island Tan will be a bronzer for lighter skintones. The powder seems really luxe.
There are also two limited edition Prisme eyeshadows ($29): Island Lagoon and Island Sun. The powders are mottled, and according to Sephora’s website, each compact contains precisely the same blend of colors, but they’re randomly mixed so each eyeshadow has a slightly different pattern. I tried to swatch the different shades separately, but it was utterly impossible, so instead you have a blended swatch.
Finally, there are two limited edition Pop Glosses ($24.50, doe’s foot wand): terracotta-peach Island Guava and red/purple-chocolate-ganache Island Cocoa.
