Givenchy Plays Foursquare In Full Color


Prismatic, multicolored face powders are often prettier than they are functional. The highly designed, well-embossed compacts look amazing on your vanity, but if they don’t blend right, you wind up with too much lavender and mint green pigment on the high planes of your face and not enough complexion-balancing shades of orange and pink. Avoiding this color fiasco is a matter of proper milling and composition, though, which Givenchy has covered. The rose, peach, violet, and seafoam atomized particles in its new, limited-edition Le Prisme Visage Bucolique are compacted in a specific way so they retain their tie-dye pattern from the top to the bottom of its glossy black mirrored case while blurring together to create a gorgeous, uniform effect. The soft-texture quad also manages to impart an iridescent but matte finish, rather than anything too shimmery, so you get face-flattering radiance every time your cheekbones catch the light. It’s a lovely reminder that spring has sprung—at least for the time being (there are some 40-degree lows in the forecast for this weekend that we’re not trying to see).
