Last Saturday saw a crowd of beauty aficionados, including some of our Clozette ambassadors, taking over Givenchy’s pop up space at Sephora’s launch pad in ION Orchard. Clad in black, gold and metallic opulence – all synonymous with the characteristics of the luxury French house – the launch pad features a beauty counter, a fragrance section and a dazzling feature wall packed with Teint Couture Cushions. It was a sight to see. After all, Singapore is the first in the world to witness the spectacle of the whole new Givenchy Teint Couture Cushion.

We’ve seen our fair share of foundation cushions around, but what is it about the Teint Couture Cushion that stands out? “Rebounded, fresh skin, as though it has just been moisturised. A light, even and corrected complexion with a glowing finish – I wanted to create a compact that would be an object of desire,” notes Nicolas Degennes, Givenchy's Le Makeup Artistic Director.

Here are five things you should know about the new Givenchy Teint Couture Cushion.
It is a metal cushion foundation

“Traditional” cushion foundations usually come in the form of foam cushions. Givenchy is one of the first beauty brands to use metal plates, instead of foam, to expel the fluid formula. With the metal cushion, it keeps the formula fresh and well protected from air. The metal plate also allows the product to go on your skin cool and revitalising – perfect for the hot and humid Asian climate.
It can be used as a touch-up or a corrector

Because it’s so lightweight and compact, simply slip the Teint Couture Cushion into your to-go bag and touch up any time throughout the day without worrying about your makeup caking up. This convenient cushion compact can be applied over makeup or on blemished areas to correct, conceal and give a natural-looking shine.
Its fluid formula contains a high concentration of water

Formulated with a high concentration of water, the foundation delivers a fluid texture that is incredibly featherweight. On top of that, it contains Commiphora oil, Glycol, Polymer beads and a unique “Blur & Glow” complex. In essence, it plumps, hydrates, and optically erases flaws while reflecting light for radiant-looking skin.
It is available in four shades

You can look forward to four shades to cater to all skin tones in Singapore: No.1 Fresh Porcelain, No. 2 Fresh Shell, No. 3 Fresh Sand, and No. 4 Fresh Beige. So fret not, you’ll be bound to find a shade that best matches your skin tone.
The 4G logo on the metal plate gives you just the right amount of product

The 4G logo you see on the metal plate is not just a design – a single push using its accompanying sponge applicator is exactly what you need to get the right amount of product for flawless skin.
