The Givenchy Prisme Blushes ($59.34 CAD) are the newest blush releases from Givenchy. Each blush comes as a two toned powder with a slightly lighter/softer colour on one side and a deeper/brighter colour on the other. I like to apply the deeper/brighter colours on my cheeks as blush and blend out the top of my blush with the softer shades, but depending on your skin tone, you can definitely use the softer shades as a blush as well. The lighter colours have a soft sheen to them (nothing glittery or shimmery), where the more vibrant colours are matte.
The blush formula stays true to the existing Givenchy blushes that are designed to be delicate washes of colour. The formula is soft, highly blendable and has buildable pigment. For me, one application is enough but for those who prefer their blush to stand out more, you can build up the layers for a greater impact without looking overly powdery.
Romantica has a light peach colour (which comes off much lighter when applied to the face) combined with a vibrant medium purple (which looks more subdued in the pan than it appears swatched and on the cheeks). Both colours show up nicely on my skin and blend out effortlessly. Wild is in more of the highlight and contour colour family, with a soft yellow colour on one side and a medium cool taupe on the other. Depending on your skintone, the yellow may not show up. For example, on my NC35 skin tone it is not as bright as i’d like it to be. The cool taupe tone is nice and provides subtle definition to my cheekbones. Although these blushes are really nice, they do not stand out on their own as must have blushes or something overly special. For the price, i’d say you can skip out on this and not miss out. For that reason, this is not beauty swatched approved.
Before purchasing these blushes, I was looking at swatches online and these two shades always looked the same (so much so that I actually purchased Romantica by accident, thinking it was Wild!). So, I included a lot of pictures all of which are true to colour and not altered.
