Givenchy Teint Couture Balm Review

I am sure that most women would wish for a flawless skin. I am glad that I was given a tube of Givenchy Teint Couture Balm to try – I found my new favorite make up base!

Givenchy Teint Couture Balm has a unique formula – water in silicone which is claimed not to leave any greasy feeling when applied onto the skin. It’s supposed to blend with the skin and leaving a very natural look and enhance natural radiance. With diamond powder encapsulated inside a polymer matrix, when Givenchy Teint Couture Balm is applied to the skin, it’s supposed to blurs away imperfection and improve complexion radiance.

The product is packaged in a simple and sleek tube. The cap has a minimalistic yet unique design in Givenchy’s signature House’s fashion collection.

When I was first introduced to this, I wonder to myself how would a product be able to blur out the complexion with a light coverage? But after trying this, I was blown away! I like how lightweight the texture of the product is. Indeed it’s able to minimizes my pores and it blurs away imperfection.

You can see from the picture above that this this Teint Couture Balm is able to provide decent coverage. By decent I mean light to medium coverage. My pores and redness is well covered, but when I have bad dark eye circles, this product alone may not be enough to cover my panda eyes. I still have to reach for my concealer to cover up my dark eye circle.

I’ve been using this for the past few weeks and here’s my verdict:

Givenchy Teint Couture balm provides a decent coverage for my day to day make up base. It’s super easy to blend with my fingers and it stays for a good long hours even when I have to work in an outdoor environment. By the end of the day, I would see a very minimal oxidation but it still look alright. It gives me a natural finish and enhancing a radiant look. What I like most about Givenchy Teint Couture Balm is that I can choose not to powder my face at all – I am able to walk out of my house without feeling greasy/sticky and yet my face would still look fine at the end of the day.

 

Givenchy Teint Couture Balm is now available in Givenchy counters in Singapore

Givenchy Teint Couture Balm was kindly provided to me for my consideration. My review is all based on my opinion and experiences on the product – honest and genuine. 

 

 

Givenchy Terre Exotique in Moonlight Croisiere #5 Review

This summer, Givenchy releases Terre Exotique powder in Moonlight Croisiere. What I have with me today is no 5 which is an asia exclusive edition. The shade of this powder is much lighter compared to the no 3 which is often used more of a bronzer or sculpting powder.

It was a love at the first sight for me, I have been browsing and reading review for this powder and couldn’t bear to miss this. The powder has a very intricate design, it’s so beautiful that it took me for few days to admire this before I decided to swirl my brush into it.

If you are wondering about the size of this powder, the size is big and it has a lot of products. It has 16g/56oz of product. It comes in a black acrylic casing with bronze lining at the corner. I was actually expecting that there’s a velvetty pouch for this powder but there’s no brush or velvet pouch provided.

As you can see in the swatch below, the powder gives a healthy glow. The shade is not too far off from my natural skin tone, so I can wear it all over my face or as a highlighting powder on my cheek bone. In real life, you shall be able to see light shimmer – the shimmers are very fine that it won’t create a shimmery look on your face.

IMG_9697.jpg I have tried using few brushes to apply this product. I tried using my Hakuhodo S104 (or J104) in swirling motion, it picked up too much product for my liking. Then I also tried using J110 blush brush and I also I find that it’s a bit too dense. I finally tried Hakuhodo S100, and so far I feel like this brush is suitable to give me the glow I like. I usually dab my S100 lightly, and apply it all over my face. The result is the healthy glow from this Terre Exotique.

In this picture, I applied Terre Exotique on my high cheekbone and on my browbone. I hope you can see the glow this powder gives on my face.

This is retailing at SGD 105, my friend helped me to get this from Metro Paragon. This is one of the prettiest powder I have. If you’re  a fan of beautiful design, you need to have this! The intricate design and the glow it provides is just gorgeous. This is a must have for me 🙂

Tell me what you think of this if you have tried it 🙂
