Givenchy introduces Matissime Velvet collection

Published: 2017-02-07 by Marina Milojević in Makeup


The house of Givenchy has just announced the launch of its new collection, Matissime Velvet, which is said to be inspired by this soft, luxurious fabric that looks completely matte but shimmers with the slightest movement. Inspired by the feel and comfort of this material, Matissime Velvet becomes one with the skin for a long-lasting, velvety-matte finish that lets the complexion’s natural radiance shine through.


The face of the Givenchy Beauty campaign for Matissime Velvet is Isis Bataglia. The campaign visuals were shot by Ben Hasset, while Nicolas Degennes was in charge of the makeup, and Christian Eberhard created the hairstyle.


The Givenchy Matissime Velvet Foundation is a luxurious liquid foundation designed to leave a healthy-looking matte finish that doesn’t look flat. The innovative formula wraps your skin in a velvety veil of natural-looking color, while letting your inner light shine through. Presented in a massive glass bottle with a black colored, studded cap with 4G logo, this foundation is fortified with PA +++ SPF20.

Givenchy Matissime Velvet Compact is a portable, easy to carry around version of Givenchy’s innovative mattifying foundation. Presented in a sleek black case with magnetic closure, the finely milled pressed powder is embossed with Givenchy’s insignia. The compact opens to reveal a large mirror, a convenient applicator, and one of the five mattifying shades. This multi-tasking powder also provides a medium level of sun protection, thanks to PA +++ SPF20.

Givenchy Makeup Blender is also a part of this interesting new collection. This unique, professional-quality makeup tool is made from soft black sponge. The original dual-ended, cone-shaped design ensures quick and easy, uniform application of both liquid and powder formulas.


Its versatile design, with slightly pointed ends, enables you to access hard-to-reach spots: around eyes, nose, and mouth. The improved ergonomic shape allows for an optimal grip.

Givenchy Matissime Velvet will be available from March 2017.
