Givenchy once again had a revolutionary idea. Simple as having your own personal “beautyguard”, for your precious complexion, who goes with you everywhere you go. Even though it may seem that this is just another long lasting formula, Teint Couture is a true balance between long-hold formula and comforting light weight foundation. Teint Couture comes in two different formulations – liquid foundation and pressed powder.
It is perfect for creating radiant, flawless complexion with a smooth, satiny finish. Its active ingredients have a strong affinity for the skin’s surface, providing adherence and becoming one with the skin. It gently refines the skin’s texture and conceals imperfections, while hydrophilic complex moisturizes and rebalances the skin cells day after day. Helps the skin withstand stress factors and protects form harmful sun rays with an SPF20.
Teint Couture long wearing fluid makes the complexion smooth, unified and hydrated. It doesn’t build up in pores of fine lines and gives out a satiny, natural finish. It illuminates the skin slightly, just enough to give off a radiant feel, and still it doesn’t come off as oily. It doesn’t have any sparkly particles inside. Coverage is light to medium, but it does do a great job of covering any imperfections. Application of foundation can be done with fingertips, brushes or sponges. Small amount of blending is needed. For me, it works best with a flat top synthetic brush.
It comes in six shades Shell 2, Sand 3, Beige 4, Honey 5, Gold 6 and Ginger 7. The price is 327 kn for 25 ml of product.
Teint Couture long wearing compact foundation is a finely milled powder and novelty piece with its pink highlighter. Pressed powder gives light to medium coverage, and is perfect for people with combination to oily skin. Finish is somewhat matte but it feels more velvety. The formula is enriched with minerals and vitamin E for more radiant skin. Because of it velvety feel, it is extremely easy to work with and doesn’t build up on dry patches. Pink highlighter is a nice add to a perfect, natural looking complexion. It can bu used as a highlight on specific areas of the face or you can mix it with the foundation for the overall radiant look. Compact powder has a sponge that works great for fast, on the go touch-ups.
It comes in five shades (for Croatian market) N2, N3, N4, N5 i N6 and the price is 380 kn for 10 g of product.
My personal favourite is the compact pressed foundation. I have dry skin and the best way for applying this kind of formula is with a flat top brush on top of my moisturizer. It gets me through 10 hours without touching up. Not only does it make my skin look radiant it also gives me an amazing soft and velvety feeling throughout the day. If I want more coverage I go for both long wearing fluid and compact powder. My shades are Elegant sand 3 for both products.
I was a big fan of Eclat Matissime fluid foundation but I am switching to this one for the long run.
What are your thoughts on these foundations? Have you tried any of them?
