To be completely honest, I have only recently experimented with loose powder, with Givenchy’s Prisme Libre being my second jar. I have always stayed away from powders of any kind as I get shortness of breath whenever I’m exposed to them. Fortunately, none of that has happened when using loose powders.
With loose powder, my makeup lasted for an entire day and mattified my skin, even in humid, forever-summer Malaysia. Only once in a blue moon would my foundation would last until dinner time if I went without loose powder.
Being the top-selling loose powder in China and having one unit sold every two minutes worldwide already speaks volumes for Givenchy’s Prisme Libre.
Am I excited? very.
I received the Givenchy Prisme Libre in Mousseline Pastel, which carries lovely shades of pink, lilac, baby blue and light green. Green powders, particularly, is known to neutralise redness, which my skin desperately needs.
Each shade of colour corrects skin tones, and when swirled together, they result in a lightweight, pearly white mix.
Givenchy also has another loose powder called the Poudre Première, a universal, translucent loose powder for all skin tones.
My Prisme Libre indeed has made my makeup last an entire day with a subtle hint of rosy glow. My skin also remained matte and a little dewy. I am also in love with its glamorous packaging, where the loose powder will fall through Givenchy’s emblem.
Loose powder is a must-have, especially if your skin tends to get oily gradually throughout the day like yours truly. A tiny amount of product goes a long way.
Givenchy’s Prisme Libre and Poudre Première retail for RM205 each (12 grams) and is available at Aeon Midvalley, Sogo KL, Parkson KLCC, Parkson Pavilion, Sephora KLCC, Sephora NU Sentral and Sephora Starhill.
