For summer 2016, the House of Givenchy is introducing two new products to help you achieve a healthy glow. Givenchy Summer Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder and Les Saisons Mister Radiant Bronzer are new for April, 2016.
The Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder (C$60) is a relaunch of a popular prior year formula. This Healthy Glow Powder is a gel powder that’s talc-free and goes on like second skin. The two new shades for 2016 are 01 Premiere Saison and 03 Ambre Saison, both of which I have to show you. I wouldn’t exactly call these bronzers, but depending on your skin tone, you can use these either as an all over powder, or as a bronzer. Both of these are matte with a bit of a satiny glow, so you get that healthy glow without artificial shimmer or glitter.
The shade 01 Premiere Saison is a great match for my light skintone and offers an incredible wash of colour that warms up my entire complexion. I wear this as an all-over powder, either alone or over foundation. The talc-free gel powder texture is pretty cool – you don’t get dusty powder flyaway, and the powder adheres and just completely melts into the skin. There’s absolutely no streakiness or powdery look here. 03 Ambre Saison is a dark colour, and I can use this either as a bronzer, or something with a darker complexion can wear is as an all over powder.
I’m also completely in love with this packaging as well. You get a very sleek, modern black compact with rose gold details. It doesn’t come with a sponge or brush, so it’s not the most travel friendly, but if you wanted to pack your own sponge, there’s a black plastic tray that sits on top of the powder that would allow you to separate a thin sponge from the powder.
Givenchy is also introducing the new Les Saisons Mister Radiant Bronzer (C$48). This is pretty cool – you basically get coloured bronzer spheres suspended in a clear gel. There are both bronze-toned and gold-toned colour spheres so that you get multidimensional colour, once the spheres are blended out. The texture of the gel is lightweight, and slightly cooling. A little bit goes a long way, and you’re able to get a very natural-looking glow with each use. It washes off, and does not tint the skin, so you can change up your look day by day.
I really love the Healthy Glow Powders, and I can see myself using this to touch up my face during the day because it brings some energy and life back to my complexiopn. The Mister Radiant Bronzer is something I probably wouldn’t use every day, but it would be great for when you have more time to spend on your makeup for a special occasion.
Both the Healthy Glow Powder and the Mister Radiant Bronzers are available now at Sephora.
