Givenchy’s Summer Collection also featured Fleur de Frangipanier, which is available in two shades: Island Sun (No. 2) and Island Tan (No. 3). Each shade retails for $45 and contains 0.35 oz. of product.
I haven’t spotted Island Sun yet, but I know it is the lighter of the two shades available and also has a significant chunk of pink color to part of its flower, so I’d also presume it runs on the pinker/redder side while Island Tan is more on the warmer/orange side. Givenchy’s Summer Collection is slated to hits stores in May 2010, so you may see it creep onto counters any day now.
Island Tan is a warmed-up, but muted, orange bronze with very, very subtle shimmer. I swatched both heavily and sheerly (and blended out), so you can see the potential intensity along with under more normal usage. It’s a very soft shade of bronze that will certainly be flattering on warmer skin tones, but I definitely think it’ll have a tendency to turn orange on those with pink or red undertones. (I would recommend checking out Island Sun instead!)
The texture of the powder is incredibly silky–it’s fine-milled and smooth to the touch. It blends beautifully and wears well. The shimmer in it is sophisticated and just barely-there, so it’s great for many skin types. Not surprising for Givenchy is the palette itself is beautiful with the raised flower and color splotch pattern. The color splotches range from a bronzed nude to chocolate bronze to peach.
