Beautifully-embossed and reminiscent of intricately-designed cathedral ceilings, I have but one word to say when I unboxed Givenchy Terre Exotique Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder Douce Croisiere 2, Magnifico! From its sleek black enamel case to ginormous mirror to bounteous product (16 g/ .56 oz), this beauty easily earned a stellar spot in my growing list of bronzer must-haves!

While I use bronzer practically year-round, it becomes more of a staple during summer months. I prefer matte but also enjoy sheen for that proverbial sun-kissed glow. Givenchy Terre Exotique performs exactly like that. It renders subtle luminosity, nothing too dramatic, overboard and muddy, at least for my medium skin tone. I like to apply it across my forehead, nose bridge and a little bit on the cheekbone and temple.

For comparison, here are side-by-side swatches of my favorite bronzers to-date. Givenchy Terre Exotique Douce Croisiere 2 is lighter than Hourglass Mirage and Guerlain Terracota and just a tad darker than Nars Laguna. If you’re fair-skinned, you will get more payoff from this. To me, it only becomes noticeable in certain angles and lighting situations.

The only con in using a product with splendid packaging and presentation? You hesitate touching it because the details can’t be preserved, ugh!
