Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 PA+++ in Perfect Vanilla Review and Swatches

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 PA+++ ($48) is a top-notch product for normal to oily skin. Housed in an elegant bottle with a pump dispenser, Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation has a creamy, silky texture that provides excellent medium coverage. The foundation infuses your skin with a subtle glow and sets to a soft powder finish.

For the picture below, I applied Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum and a single pump of Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation in Perfect Vanilla on my entire face. My skin was pretty blotchy at the time so I could have added more to the sections of my face that needed more coverage, but I wanted to show you how the product looks with just one pump. 

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation in Perfect Vanilla is a great color match for my skin, and I love the soft matte finish that enlivens your complexion rather than dulls.

After it sets, Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation is not going anywhere. It does not melt off or fade during the day, so my skin still looks great when I wash it off.

In fact, I feel like Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation looks better as the day wears on. It's as if it meshes with your skin over time until your complexion looks even more luminous and fresh.

The mattifying properties of Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation are extremely impressive as well. I don't blot at all when I use it. Sure, I get some shine here and there after awhile, but it is minimal and seems to disappear after a few minutes.

Bottom Line: Although pricey (I saved up to buy it), Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation is a worthwhile splurge. This long-lasting matte foundation doesn't make you sacrifice your glow for oil control.

  2. The foundation looks really good on you..looking at the photo it looks about the size of a bottle of fingernail polish...maybe the pic is deceiving...how long do you think this will last you??

    1. great question, Tessa! The bottle contains 0.8 fl oz. For reference, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, NARS Sheer Glow, and MAC Studio Fix are all 1 oz. So Givenchy Photo'Perfexion is a little smaller but not by all that much. I haven't worn liquid foundation regularly for awhile so I'll have to wait and see how long it lasts for me :)
