Summer usually asks for a lighter foundation, which for me is s problem as they tend to have less coverage.
When I saw the Givenchy Teint Couture Balm I thought it would be way too sheer for my needs.
Surprisingly, this smooth balm, which unifies the skin making it look fresh, gives light but decent coverage with a flattering blur and illuminating effect.
The “Light & Blur” complex helps conceal imperfections such as fine lines and blemishes, creating a more natural, lightly corrected and glowy complexion.
It has no oils and applies well; apparently it has some volatile ingredients that vanish as the balm melts into the skin, contributing to its lightness.
Durability wise, I’d say it stands a full work day with some wear; in warmer climates, it looks great for at least six hours.
