So what is it exactly? foundation, bronzer, mist? A limited edition in time for summer, I was more than intrigued to get my hands on Givenchy Brume Bonne Mine. I am a bronzer gal year round so adding it to my ever expanding arsenal won’t hurt.

Housed in an aerosol spray, this product is the latest addition to Givenchy Croisiere line. It’s currently a limited edition but I am finger-crossing that it becomes permanent. But what is it again zilla? Alright let me break it down for you. If you are fair-skinned, slightly misting this on your face will give you that proverbial summer glow. If you have medium skin tone like moi, it can pass for tinted or light foundation. If you are tanning, it will compliment your faux tan depending on the intensity of coverage. Here’s how to use it as a foundation.

1. Apply sunscreen/moisturizer/serum as per usual.

2. Shake the bottle.

3. Close eyes and spray from about 6-8 inches away.

4. Blend and buff with foundation brush.

It dries to a velvety finish without the need for setting powder (personal preference). Wear time is about seven hours with slight dewiness peeking on the fifth hour. I am in love with its lightweight formula and how it compliments my skin tone, hence my wish for it to become permanent. I am surprised that it has the ability to even out my dull complexion. Simply put, it’s a great summer must-have if you’re coveting natural glow and skin enhancement.

Here’s Givenchy Brume Bonne Mine in all its glory. I purposely omitted blush and bronzer because I love it on its own.

    What a brilliant idea! This must be the quickest way of applying foundation. I'll definitely look out for this asap. I love the finish on you!

    Intriguing product. I am one of those weirdoes who can't spray anything at my face, it dries me crazy. So I have to apply to a pad and then apply which defeats the purpose of many sprays! I'm glad you are loving it!

    That sounds really interesting! I'd totally buy one of it came in a ghostly pale color 🙂

    It looks gorgeous on you. I love bronzers because I avoid the sun at all costs hehe. I am intrigued now!

    Wow, that's pretty cool!! I like that it doesn't distribute too much product, but just enough! <3

    Such a unique product. It definitely creates that healthy summer glow.

    You look fantastic! I have a question – does it get in your hair very badly when you spray it? That would be my concern from a fair-hair perspective! But otherwise I love the idea of spritzing on a glow!

    I want this!! I love products like this!!

    This looks perfect on you. It reminds me of Classified Cosmetics ERA Spray foundation but with a natural tan look.

  11. May 28, 2015 / 5:06 am

    I LOVE that you don't have to set it with a powder.

  12. May 28, 2015 / 5:36 am

    Thanks for breaking this down for me. These types of products confuse me but they are so awesome when used properly!

    This sounds a lot like Dior Show, love the finish!

  14. May 28, 2015 / 3:46 pm

    This is so cool! It looks great on you. I'm curious to see how it would look on me!

  15. May 28, 2015 / 5:46 pm

    Oooh – this sounds fabulous – so luxurious! I swear, everytime I see a post of yours for Givenchy… I seriously pronounce it in my head while reading the title… in that luxurious, french sounding voice of mine. lol I love reading your posts on the luxury items.

    Looks like a great aerosol! Love the finished look on you.

    This looks and sounds lovely!

  18. May 29, 2015 / 11:25 am

    Ooh, this looks incredible! I don't really do the bronze thing, but I would be all over this if they came out with a tinted moisturizer/ bb cream type version.

  19. May 30, 2015 / 12:50 am

    Ohhhh you've got my interest. I want to play around with this type of foundation application. As usual, you look stunning!
