Givenchy Teint Couture Foundation Review


Teint Couture, the new foundation by Givenchy, creates a comfortable and long-wearing silky veil which matches your skin tone to provide a tailor-made coverage.

Visually stunning, we immediately fell in love with the packaging of both the Fluid Foundation and Compact Foundation, and were intrigued to see how they stood up to their long-lasting claims.

We put both of these Givenchy Foundations to the test…


I LOVE this foundation. I have been using the liquid formula for a couple of weeks now and I am definitely a convert. I have quite dry skin and look for a foundation that offers a slightly dewy texture rather than anything too matte and this was perfect. It has a lovely consistency which melts into the skin quickly and gives my skin a lovely glow.

The Givenchy Teint Couture foundation is elegantly presented in a glass bottle with an easy to control pump. I am quite fair skinned and tend to wear shades along the ‘ivory’ or ‘porcelain’ lines. I found that the Givenchy shade of ‘03 elegant sand’ was a perfect match. I found that it blended well and had a seamless near-matte medium coverage. My fine lines and scars were blurred and it left my skin looking lovely and airbrushed.

I have combination skin and I absolutely love the Teint Couture foundation by Givenchy! The texture is silky soft and light without being too runny or thick and when applied it transforms the tone and appearance of the skin. It covers imperfections and creates a perfectly illuminating base for makeup and it doesn’t create lines or emphasise wrinkles. The foundation sets comfortably and is virtually undetectable, providing the ideal finish that lasts all day long. Love, love, love it.

The consistency of both the foundations is light with very good coverage. I apply my usual concealer after the fluid foundation and dust the powder over the top to hold it. I found that I had to apply the powder just once again throughout the day to get rid of shininess (as I have combination skin) but found that it didn’t cake up at all. This is now a firm favourite in my makeup bag!

With the change in weather and my summer tan fading fast, it was time to step away from the tinted moisturiser and switch to an autumn foundation. After trying Givenchy Teint Couture I can 100% say that this is the foundation for me. As soon as the foundation was applied, my skin instantly looked radiant with a perfectly even coverage. The foundation has a lightweight, smooth feel to it and is the perfect all rounder foundation – I love it!





The Teint Couture Fluid Foundation was perfect for my dry to normal skin type. It stayed on my skin all day and felt really good – I didn’t think it needed any additional powder to be worn over the top because it provided an even coverage with no oiliness. I liked the fact that it has SPF20, providing a stronger and more effective level of protection for my skin.

I found Givenchy Teint Couture Foundation light and easy to apply. It blends into my skin and looks really natural, giving a glow without being overly shiny. I took this on holiday with me to see how it stood up to the Turkish heat and it stayed on my skin throughout the evening.

I was excited to try Givenchy Teint Couture as I haven’t used a Givenchy foundation before. First of all the smell was divine, I think because of the SPF! My skin tends to be quite dry but the foundation was great and gave me a perfect finish.

I decided to try the new Givenchy Teint Couture Foundation and Powder which claim to be long-lasting, taking you from day to night without reapplication. I found the consistency was like a second layer of skin, and it didn’t feel like I was wearing makeup at all! The coverage was even and the colour adapted well to my skintone. Regarding the long-lasting claim, I found that this definitely wore comfortably all day. All I needed was a quick dusting of powder and I was ready for a night out after work!
