Givenchy Moonlight Saison & Ambre Saison Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powders

Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder
Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new “baked” powder that comes in five shades; one is a highlighter and four are in various bronzing hues. Some retailers have the highlighter/bronzer separated out, though they seem to be part of the same formula otherwise. I bought the highlighter and one of the bronzer shades to check out. The formula is decent with a very smooth texture, which has a firmer press and requires a dense brush or a heavy hand to get coverage out of it. The powder blends out fairly easily, wears eight hours, and neither shade emphasized pores/skin texture for me.

Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a very, very light white with subtle, warm tones and a satin finish. To the naked eye, I could just barely see a sheen on my skin, but it is very, very subtle. I don’t expect that the highlighter will work on that many skin tones, as it is very white-based and has little sheen, but very fair skin types who like subtler finishes may like it. It seemed to last about eight hours on me (harder for me to tell, given the color paired with my skin tone). It is actually described as “radiant” and for “strobing,” and it could function more as a finishing powder or setting powder for similarly-hued skin tones than it does as a highlighter. The shimmer/sheen is actually much less than the bronzer I picked up! Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Releve (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder (LE, $72.00) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Soft Light (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever H100 (P, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Glow (Tarteist) (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Lucid (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever H104 (P, $23.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Ever Glow Lights (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Ambre Saison Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was smooth, slightly firm (but not dry/stiff), and sat well on the skin. It produced a soft, lit-from-within kind of glow that didn’t look shimmery or emphasize the skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Chanel Original (P, $50.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (02) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #25I (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Bronzer (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Terre d'Ete (LE, $78.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Cover FX Sunkissed (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Viseart Ablaze (Bronzer) (P, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Physicians Formula Light Bronze (P, $14.99) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bronze Age (P, $110.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #20M (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Medium (P, $58.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Delphic (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Laguna (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Becca Capri Coast (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Going Native (Bronzer) (P, ) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NARS Melina (Highlight) (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bronze Age (P, $68.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick

Enhance your lip look with Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick. This unique formula is infused with black rose oil, a rare and precious active ingredient that delivers extreme moisture and comfort to the lips for hours. It is combined with a silicone resin that forms a shiny, thin, and supple film on the lips’ surface for a second-skin feel. Lips are left with a “vinyl” radiance and a filling effect: lips instantly appear fuller, smoother, and denser. Each high-shine color blurs away all the lips’ tiniest imperfections and reflects the light, and its slick case features a metallic, satin ribbon design that’s inspired by the House’s fashion designs.

Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter
Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter

Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural shine. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, but for such a light shade, I was surprised it was really sheer! The texture was smooth when applying, but the lighter color seemed to cling a little more noticeably. On me, it lasted for three hours but settled into lip lines. It was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC Romantic Breakdown (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $36.00) is warmer. Chanel Satisfaction (89) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Real Redhead (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Rose Fantaisie (202) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that had a tendency to pull into lip lines, and it looked a little streaky. The color stayed put for two and a half hours, and the color migrated more and more noticeably into lip lines over time. Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed (P, $20.00) is darker. MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is warmer. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is darker. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $22.00) is darker. MAC Real Doll (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Moka Imprime (304) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though it could have applied better. The texture was lightweight, a little clingy but not drying. This shade wore for three and a half hours on me. Chanel Grace (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $50.00) is brighter, warmer. Chanel Scenario (P, $35.00) is warmer. Chanel Suzanne (438) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Bite Beauty Rosewood (P, $28.00) is cooler. Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: Givenchy Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a hydrating, sheer coverage lipstick packaged in a slim tube that’s a riff off of the original Le Rouge formula. This formula is significantly lighter in weight and look, as well as much sheerer (and that is by design). The texture has a very smooth, velvety feel to it, almost like a stiffer lip balm, but it doesn’t tug on the lips. The color tended to look more like a stain of color, and it felt a little clingy, even if it wasn’t actually drying. For me, the formula was lightly hydrating at most and tended to wear only a few hours. These have a floral scent that’s noticeable in the tube and once applied, though I didn’t notice any taste.
