When it comes to face-enhancing makeup, like blush, bronzer, and luminizer, I’m typically less adventurous than I am with lipgloss, eyeshadow, and the like. Instead of stocking up and experimenting with any and all of the newest shades, finishes, and formulas (okay, some may call it hoarding), I typically find a finishing powder I like and stick with it… until it gets discontinued or shatters in my purse, of course. The one exception is that I am a sucker for pretty palettes… and Givenchy’s new-for-spring Le Prisme Visage Bucolique sets the standard relatively high up there in terms of prettiness! Infused with four different pastels, the shades are arranged and layered within the compact to apply evenly (so clumsy makeup-appliers don’t need to worry about showing up in public with unsightly green-tinted cheeks!) and the overall finish is subtle with just a slight neutral, flattering iridescence. With minimal shimmer, but just the right amount of light-reflecting radiance, this luminizer seems like the ultimate universally-flattering addition to anyone’s makeup regime this spring!
