Packaging:
The Givenchy Prisme Blush Highlight & Structure Powders are housed in a stunning shiny black compact. The lid bears a raised silver Givenchy logo and the compact closes with a silver stud button. The compact inside is divided in half, you get 6.5g of product and a mini powder brush. Quality-wise, the brush is just okay so I personally could have done without it. Nevertheless, it will still come in handy when I'm on the go.

Formulation:
Although the name suggests that this is a highlighting and structuring cheek powder, the Prisme Blush Highlight & Structure Powders are no more than standard blushes to me. The pan is divided in half and one side features a lighter shade and the other a brighter shade. The two can be used separately but because of the small size of the pan, it's difficult to swipe into one shade without picking up the other.
Pigmentation-wise, these are on the sheerer side. However, that's not an issue for me. When it comes to blushes, I've come to prefer a sheerer formulation over the years just because it's easier to apply and build. The powders are all very silky and finely-milled and all four shades below give such a nice and brightening effect. There are some very subtle sparkles so the blushes provide a natural glow that lights up the complexion. In terms of wear, these were surprisingly long-lasting because the color stayed put at the end of the day. Lastly, the blushes have a beautiful floral fragrance that's light and feminine.
