GIVENCHY Couture Edition Le Rouge and Prisme Libre for Spring/Summer 2018 - Review and Swatches

Its almost summers and I am always so excited to see how my garden fills up with flowers. Its the best time of the year and I love spending time in my backyard with my family and friends. Givenchy truly captured the essence of garden blooms in this limited edition Couture Collection featuring Le Rouge in 315 Frambiose Velour and my all time favorite loose powder, Prism Libre in Shade 1. Both shades are permanent and now available for limited time in this glamorous floral printed case. I absolutely love how Givenchy beauty presents their products. The packaging is always luxurious and their limited edition cases can be reused on any of the Le Rouge lipsticks or Prism Libre loose powders. More on these beautiful products in today's blog.



Couture Edition 2018 - Le Rouge Lipstick in 315 Frambiose VeloursThis beautiful satin finish, deep berry plum shade is a perfect addition to my spring/summer wardrobe. 315 Frambiose Velours is a complexion brightening shade that makes me look 10x happier and satisfied with my life :D I think it would look beautiful on most complexions and its one of those shades that truly encapsulate the spirit of summer time. I love wearing a punchy lip color for garden parties and this shade looks perfect on most outfits. Even though this shade lasts all day and leaves a berry stain on my lips, I never miss an opportunity to pull it out of my purse for touch ups. The printed genuine leather case is a conservation starter and what a wonderful way to convey my love for luxury makeup. Givenchy always does the best packaging with the highest quality products. The texture of Le Rouge lipsticks is so creamy and easy to apply that lasts a full work day and keeps my lips moisturized. Absolutely love this!   



Prism Libre in Mousseline Pastel for Couture Edition 2018
This is my favorite loose powder and especially the shade 1- Mousseline Pastel which has four color correcting powders to give a flawless appearance to my complexion. I am always looking for ways to even out my complexion as it includes redness, darkness under the eyes and what not. This powder never looks chalky and always adds a little radiant glow on my skin. I apply it to set my concealer under the eye and all over my face after foundation and it looks perfect every time.
I used to shake off some powder in the lid and then apply with a brush, however over time, I have started to use the puff, included in the packaging, to apply to my skin and then I blend it out with a brush. I feel it minimizes wastage and delivers the perfect amount of powder in skin. Its a beautiful natural finish that also makes my foundation last longer.
