Givenchy Moonlight Saison & Ambre Saison Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powders

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.

Guerlain Pause d’Ete Terracotta Bronzing Powder Duo ($82.00 for 0.60 oz.) swirls together to create a warmer, medium orange-brown hue with a frosted shimmer. The gold is an overspray (which I tried to remove, but a bit of it lingered), while the browner shade is a medium-dark, golden brown, and the center shade was a light-medium coral-orange.

MAC Yellow Topaz CCB & Firebrush Bronzer

MAC Yellow Topaz Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, yellow gold with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had sheer color payoff that was somewhat buildable to semi-sheer coverage. The texture of this shade was less emollient than other Cream Colour Bases, so it had less shine and a subtle shimmered effect on the skin. I think the finish is more apparent in person than in photos, but it is a subtler effect. It lasted for seven hours on me (of the eight hours it is marketed as having). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
