Givenchy have just launched the Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Foundation, and is a new perfecting skin tint. Givenchy have launched a few new products recently but this new skin tint launch is perfectly timed for Spring, where many of us favour a lighter coverage for our base products.
Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Foundation
Teint Couture City Balm’s structure is based on innovative polymers which allow the formula to last for 24 hours by resisting water and without smudging. The formula is enriched with shea extract, whose properties help to reduce the harmful effects of pollution on the skin. The hyaluronic acid contributes to hydrate the skin during 24 hours* and the licorice extract helps to provide skin with suppleness and comfort all day long.
Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Foundation Directions
1. Apply the Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Foundation using fingertips, with a sponge or with the Teint Couture Everwear brush, starting from the center of the face.
2. Blend the texture from the center of the face outwards.
3. In order to enhance the perfect result and makeup hold, combine with Teint Couture Everwear concealer and Prisme Libre finishing powder.
The Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Foundation is available in 14 shades and is £43 for 30ml. The foundation comes in a squeeze plastic bottle, and the colour of the bottle matches the shade of the foundation inside. The bottle has a silver chrome lid, which pulls off to reveal a pump dispenser.
Looking at the swatches, for a product that calls itself a skin tint, or a city balm, the coverage and payoff looks really promising. Whilst 14 shades isn’t enough for a foundation range, I do think they go both decently pale and decently deep, with a mixture of tones too. The finish does look quite dewy if the swatches are anything to go by, and it’s available for purchase right now.
