I’ve slowly been attempting extra from Givenchy and need to say I’m obsessed. I believe the Prism Free Concealer is among the finest concealers I’ve tried. I put on Shade C305 within the concealer and it’s creamy, simple to mix, has nice protection, doesn’t crease or cake. Love that it has the proper consistency – not too creamy however not too matte.
The Prisme Libre Loose Setting Powder can be pure love. It units basis/concealer so properly with a pure blurred impact. Primarily based on the colour descriptions I first tried 4 Acidulated Mousseline for medium pores and skin tones which has inexperienced and lilac powders for shade correcting. I’ve additionally tried 3 Pink Veil (a bit mild, however I could make it work) and 5 Popeline Mimosa (a bit too darkish). I nonetheless assume Shade 4 is the very best for me though I don’t actually need the inexperienced and purple tones to paint appropriate. I actually want they’d make a medium shade with out the colour correctors.
Most just lately I attempted the Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Glow Foundation. I lastly discovered my match within the shade N280. Love this system for the pure glow and medium protection.
For a glow complexion enhancer the No 1 de Chanel Skin Enhancers from Chanel palms down was my favourite (Unique to Chanel and Ulta Beauty). Full assessment here. For a extra reasonably priced various (however with out skincare) I nonetheless suggest the Elf Halo Glow Liquid Filter (I put on Shade 3 or 4) for an throughout pure glow booster.
The Chanel Longwear Lip Pencils lastly got here again in inventory! The shades Rose Naturel + Nude Brun are the very best ones for my part for neutrals.
Within the matte lip/liquid lip world I attempted a few of the Lisa Eldridge Velveteen Liquid Lip Colour and was fully blown away! I’m often not a fan of liquid lips/matte lip formulation, however this one from Lisa Eldridge has probably the most comfy liquid lip texture that I’ve ever tried. It has a pleasant dry down that doesn’t shrink or dry out the lips. Colours are very flattering and lasting energy is spectacular. I’ve not carried out a weblog publish on these however you possibly can see them in action HERE on reels.
