Recently a lot of cosmetics brands have been launching make-up products to cater men’s needs. Men can be quite complicated when it comes to make-up products. Lots of men want to use them, but only if it is in a masculine way. One brand offering exactly this is Givenchy with its unisex ‘Mister’ Collection. This collection consists of 4 products that can make your face look better in a natural way.

Givenchy Mister Mattifying Stick
“A matifying stick with a second-skin effect in a sheer shade that durably smooths the skin and reduces imperfections without a caking effect.”
Just like the name says, this stick can be used all over your face to matify your skin. It mostly helps to reduce ‘oily’ parts of your face (especially the T-zone), and to smoothen out pores. So especially if you have an oily or combined skin, it will make it disappear just in a few seconds. The product is more of a nice-to-have. However, it is good to note that applying make-up on a matified skin, results in the most natural look.
Givenchy Mister Instant Corrective Pen (concealer)
“A concealer for dark circles under the eyes available in 4 shades to mask imperfections and signs of fatigue and to brighten the eyes.”
This concealer is my favourite product in this collection, and probably the best concealer I have ever used. It leaves no traces of make-up, covers imperfections in a natural way, and lasts the entire day. This concealer comes in 4 different shades so it is important for you to pick the right one for your skin tone. On my Caucasian-Mediterranean skin, I used the ‘130’-shade on the dark circles under my eyes (and on some small imperfections and scars) and the ‘140’-shade on the red parts of my cheeks. Even though this product is easy to blend with your finger, I blended with a beauty blender. The product has a light coverage and brightens up your eye-area. The concealer has a nice masculine packaging and looks like a real pen. So easy to take with you if you don’t want someone to notice you are carrying make-up products. Definitely recommend this to every man or woman.
Givenchy Mister Healthy Glow Gel
“A healthy glow gel in a universal shade that precisely adapts to your skin colour to enhance its tone with pigmented microspheres.”
If you are looking for something that makes your skin look healthy and smooth, then this product is your best friend. What I love about this gel is that it has small-pigmented parts in that give your skin a nice bronze as if you just came home again after nice relaxing weekend. This gel is not a foundation that covers your skin, but it is a great alternative if you’re looking to enhance your skin rather than correct it. I would recommend this product to everyone since it really is a hack for looking better and healthier in an easy, quick way. Use this product as part of your morning routine or take it with you if you want to look at your best the entire day.
Givenchy Mister Brow Groom
“A transparent gel that naturally disciplines eyebrows thanks to the precision of its curved brush.”
Best way to describe this product: transparent mascara for your eyebrows. If you want to have sleek-looking groomed eyebrows then this product is for you. It doesn’t have a drastic life-changing effect on your brows, but it is a nice-to-have if you want a sharper look. Invest in this if you need a quality gel for your eyebrows.
Givenchy really never disappoints so I am not shocked that this collection is so good. However I do hope they expand this collection with more items such as foundations, contouring products or highlighter.
Overall, these products offer real quality in a beautiful masculine packaging. You should definitely invest in the Instant Pen Corrective and the Healthy Glow Gel if you want a natural look. I use these two products on a daily and consider them to be essentials in looking great. The Brow Groom Gel and the Matifying Stick are nice-to-have which you can use if you want that last step to perfection.
