After the success of Givenchy's limited edition 'Candide Pink' Blush Gelée in 2011, the high-end fashion and cosmetics brand recently introduced a new Blush Gelée just in time for Summer. 'Croisiére Coral', a bright coral pink with orange undertones 'brightens the cheeks with its chromographone colouring agent, ensuring an ingenuous radiance'.
I was recently sent Givenchy's newest Blush Gelée and, as a complete blush addict, was more than a little excited to test it out. Below is my review:
When I first tried Givenchy's Blush Gelée, I was somewhat taken aback by its watery texture. While I knew that it was a jelly blush, I was expecting a somewhat more creamy or mousey texture. After giving the tube a good shake (you need to shake it before application), I applied it to my cheeks and immediately noticed the 'pleasant, cooling sensation' created by the blush's high water content.
While the blush's sponge-tipped applicator makes applying blush to your cheeks very easy (and precise), I did find that I still needed to use my fingers (careful, this blush does stain) or a synthetic haired brush to blend the blush out evenly.
The blush itself is extremely well pigmented, and its jelly formula gives the cheeks a very natural looking dewy glow. Once set, the Givenchy Blush Gelée does not budge and stains the cheeks for a long lasting, touch-up free finish.
While the price, at $37 CND, is more than I would like to pay for any blush, I have to say I am very impressed by, not only the colour of Givenchy's latest Blush Gelée, but its unique consistency/texuture and long lasting formula.
If you are a blush addict like me and have yet to experience the wonders of a jelly blush, be sure to check out Givenchy's Blush Gelée in 'Croisiére Coral'.
