Sometimes, with reformulations, you can never really tell the old from the new, and in particular, powders which are miniscule degrees of fineness. However, what’s notable about the Givenchy Prisme Visage Update is that you absolutely can tell that it’s different. The introduction of silk proteins has made an already lighter than air to another dimension. It’s so hard to explain, but it feels literally weightless and immediately like it’s part of your own skin.
Powders aren’t something I use regularly – very rarely, in fact – so it’s not my area of expertise, and I think you’d need to have your head around the Givenchy Prisme concept in the first place. I never can quite see those subtle complexion nuances these are supposed to produce. I’ve used No.6 Organza Miel which is perfect to give a bronze element to my tone, but I must admit that I’ve only used it one dimensionally as a bronzer.
It’s enough to get the texture experience of an almost melting powder that makes my skin feel softer than it did before I applied it. There’s no clagging in lines and creases and no making skin look dry which is a complete result in itself. Although it’s not specifically implied, this is an absolute boon of a powder for older skin like mine that finds powder nigh on impossible to deal with without making my complexion look instantly dry.
The brush is perfectly angled for any contouring and picking out of the four shades but equally can be used to wash over a blend of all four. The palettes will be £34.50 from September and there are 7 shades.
