An obsession I once had for Givenchy’s Prisme Libre has come back into full swing with the heat Los Angelenos have been roughing out lately. It’s not so much the weather that has brought me back to this product but the eight dollar find I bumped into while browsing the Sephora app. I randomly typed in powder puff in the mobile app search bar and immediately added to cart a three mini Velour Puff set from the Sephora Collection (see photos below). I took a stab at this purchase hoping these puffs would fit my long lost love for my Givenchy powders.
I entirely stopped using the Prisme Libre solely because I could not for the life of me find a puff to replace the Givenchy puff that came with the Prisme Libre. I had to wash it – it was filthy! When I did wash it I was gutted because the puff was far from over kill – it was ruined.
The Sephora Collection mini puffs fit perfectly in the Prisme Libre. These puffs actually do a better job than that of the Givenchy puff itself. It is thicker and does not cling to the powder but simply stays atop the puff like it is sitting on a cloud.
I am so very happy – so happy that I have stocked up on these puffs. If you own a Prisme Libre, you know that this powder will last a pretty long time. The puffs won’t and at $8 a pop (set of three) – I am a happy camper since these puffs brought back life into my holy grail setting powder.
About the Prisme Libre: there are five shades available via Sephora online and I was an avid user of the shade Voilé Rose. Voile Rosé had a more radiant effect on my skin. The shade you see in this post in Mousseline Pastel is not my favorite but I must use it before it ages. This shade still does the trick but is not as radiant as Voile Rosé. These powders are mattifying and are worth every penny in my opinion. When you hold the puff on top of the product, shake it, you can see in the photo above that each ‘G’ picks up equal parts of every shade to brighten, correct, and mattify the skin. I must also mention that the Prisme Libre smells beautiful! The longevity of my makeup also last a few hours longer. When I press the powder onto my skin it also leaves ‘G’ traces on my face. I press on both my cheeks, temples, and forehead each time going back into the Prisme Libre for a full load. I then blend what is on my face with a large powder brush.
