Givenchy Blooming Fuchsias

Givenchy, Blooming FuchsiasIt’s no secret that I’m having a little love affair with Givenchy. It’s been building for years, from the days of admiring their counter in Saks, to admiring their spokeswomen (Audrey Hepburn, Liv Tyler). The item that pushed me over the edge, however, was the limited edition Island Tan from their summer collection.

Though they do many things well, this product convinced me that their powders are really something special. It’s the loveliest bronzer I’ve ever had.

Anyway, my love for that bronzer led me to do something I generally try to avoid: I bought makeup, sight unseen.

I was lusting over the online-only Blooming collection at first sight, and their description of Blooming Fuchsias blush filled me with desire: “a combination of reds and bright pinks, like a burst of flowers.” I hate buying blind, but I had to pull the trigger.

I’m so glad I did. I love Blooming Fuchsias’ warm pink. The powder is gorgeous, with no shimmer or sparkle. It smells divinely like roses (like actual roses) — though if you disliked the scent, you could probably leave the powder open for a few days and it would dissipate.

The blush was $48.50, and for all I know, I bought the last one at But in case you encounter it in your travels (Ebay, or even Epcot Center), I thought you should know what it really looked like.

  • Oooh so I’m not alone!? I, too, got the Island Tan prisme and absolutely loved it. So for Fall I got the Blooming prisme in Apricot, but I didn’t get the blush as I don’t wear true pinks too often (reddy cheeks already). I’m now an absolute fan of Givenchy powders!

    Dear Karla,
    I’m feeling a twinge of envy. That looks so pretty.
    If I ever come across it, I’m getting it!
