Summer has officially started, and it’s about time that I show you the last summer collection I have, Givenchy Croisière 2015! Between *Mister Radiant, *Ambre Croisière Healthy Glow Powder, *Extreme Blue Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof, *Fancy Pink Gloss Interdit, and *Croisière Aquatique Le Vernis, we’re looking at bronzed skin (what else?) and some happy colors!
Givenchy Mister Radiant Made-to-Measure Glow is a non-greasy gel with golden and bronzy micro-spheres. It has a tiare flower type of scent, and it produces a very very subtle bronzy glow. I prefer to use it as a daytime moisturizer for a little something extra, but the difference is so subtle that I don’t think most people can spot it!
Givenchy Mister Radiant swatch:
I blended it out on the right side so you can see the result is there, but it is not that obvious at all.
Looking for a more warmth and glow? Givenchy Healthy Glow Powders might be more up your alley. There are 4 shades in total, and I have Ambre Croisière (3) here:
Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder is a baked gel that feels ultra smooth and lightweight. You can see a bit of shimmer in the swatch, but it does not show up as such on the face. Ambre Croisière has excellent color payoff as well as blendability. The lasting power is equally impressive!

Quick heads-up for the ladies and gents on the fairer side of the spectrum: I was asked which bronzer I would recommend for very fair skin tones, and Givenchy Première Croisière (1) came to mind.
Moving on to the colors!
Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof is not news. What I didn’t know is there is a permanent teal shade called Extreme Blue (2)!
It takes a little patience to work with the “puffy fish” brush, but you do get to get right to the roots to push the lashes up and separate them that way. Extreme Blue is darker than most colored mascaras I have tried, but it is obviously teal!
Isn’t it pretty? I like it more than the blue mascaras I have tried!
Here you see two coats of Givenchy Extreme Blue Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof over Dior Diorshow Lash Maximizer:
By the way, even though the formula is waterproof, my lashes stay soft instead of rigid and crunchy.
Givenchy Fanchy Pink Gloss Interdit (39) is a bright cool-toned pink with tiny shimmer. It is rather opaque for a gloss. Unless you eat a meal, it actually hands in there. The consistency is on the thicker side, and it does not seem to apply evenly with the brush. However, it does not feel sticky on the lips. Once you press your lips together, it is completely evened out. Quick heads-up: the formula is heavily-scented, so take a whiff and make sure you’re OK with it!

Here you see Mister Radiant, Ambre Croisière, Extreme Blue Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof, and Fancy Pink on me:
I saved the best for last with Givenchy Croisière Aquatique Le Vernis (27)!
I live for turquoise/teal/aqua type of shades in summer. What I love about Croisière Aquatique is the fact that it is more vibrant and saturated than a pastel, but at the same time there is a “dusty” quality to it so it has a very serene vibe. The consistency is slightly thicker, but it’s easy to work with and it’s fully opaque with two coats. If you like the shade, this one comes highly recommended!
This is the only limited edition piece here, so don’t miss out!
Did anything pique your interest here, or do you already have everything you need this summer?
