I wants it now please.

What fun!

k, now that I’ve shared my excitement how about a little Givenchy love?


A gorgeous blush from Givenchy!

Givenchy was a major player in my makeup stash for a long time but in recent years in somehow took a backseat. Needless to say I always get excited with each collection released and I do explore but I’m not as inclined to dive in and purchase it all as I once was.

I recently hauled the new Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Blooming from Sephora on a whim so I thought I’d share a few pics and a babble or two with you about it.

I mentioned this in a post a while ago but it deserves to be said again that Givenchy has really stepped up its game in terms of packaging. The new packaging is slimmer, friendlier, and just prettier in my opinion. Brushes are now housed in a stealthy pull out drawer, the packaging has a slicker finish and feels less box like, plus it just has a more elegant touch. Not that it wasn’t gorgeous before but for some reason it looks much more interesting even though alot hasn’t changed.

Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Blooming seemed special enough for me to warrant the $48.50 purchase, actually, discussing it now, that too has changed. Prices have dropped down around $6 or so on products which doesn’t make Givenchy any more affordable but feels a little lighter on a collector’s wallet.

Of course, Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Blooming is one of those purchases you make because you’re a collector but not necessarily because you want a colored blush that looks great. It’s the packaging and the design of the blush that you’re investing in here. The blush itself looks like a beautiful watercolor painting with splashes of pink, peach, and coral. For the most part its a matte finish and has a slightly chalky texture on swatch but applies smooth and silky on cheeks with a nice subtle touch of color that classifies it as elegant and never overly done.

As I said it’s not something you’re going to invest in simply because you need a new blush, it’s more a collector’s piece and will appeal to those who love the brand. Even though I like the blush I can even easily admit it is a little too highly priced to justify for such a simpler blush in terms of color, packaging, and presentation as Givenchy LE’s are normally a tad more fancier and prettier. This is very pretty don’t get me wrong but not as special to warrant its near $50 price tag.

  • Those who want a subtle, elegant dash of colors on cheeks!
  • High end makeup users!
  • Makeup collectors!

  • Anyone not interested in high end price tags.

The formula, packaging, and presentation of the blush is sheer perfection and I’m very happy to add this to my Givenchy stash however I realize the price definitely won’t appeal to everyone. If you’re a fond fan it’s probably worth the haul since it’s one of the few Givenchy products that I feel compelled to not only say “hey, look, pretty blush” but also use it on my face without being scared of ruining the design and/or product.


Available exclusively at Sephora.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse, thanks so much for reviewing this!!! Givenchy has really stepped up their game lately IMO. Have you seen the new e/s quartets? I MUST have the Khaki Egerie (sp?). GORGE!!!!

    • the Muse

      hi caroline I picked up the khaki! great minds think alike. agreed. Yes, they have really stepped it up lately. It’s been a while inbetween my givenchy purchases but lately I’ve had strong lemmings 😀

      • Caroline

        Wow, I seriously *gasped* when I read you picked up the Khaki, (and I’m not even a dramatic person!) Is there anything you could tell me about the other quartets? I do not have access to these in person and have only seen swatches of the Khaki on another blog? Other than the blue and midnight, do any of the others look like a cool/neuatral girl could wear them?

        • the Muse

          mmm caroline totally can’t tell you much b/c I ordered khaki online 😀 they aren’t at sephora yet or at least the ones I visited. But the Khaki should work great for you. Greens always look nice on both cool and warm imho 🙂 but as soon as I see them in person will tell you more!!!!!!!! 😀

    It look really pretty but if Im gonna splurge it’s gonna be on YSL or Dior maybe Channel even if its kind of a boring brand, but for some reason these products always seem overpriced just like Guerlain.
    I would rather buy something from a Beaute Cosmetics or Illamasqua, because they seem to be more accesible and they have better pigment.
