The second product I picked up from the Givenchy Fall Collection is the exhaustingly long-named Blush Memoire de Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in the shade Rose Extravagant. At the moment this is the only shade available in this formula, but perhaps Givenchy will release more in the future! A huge part of the reason that I wanted this blush was the texture. Based on promo pictures, I assumed the Pop Up Jelly Blush would be quite similar to the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées, which I talked about here. But rather than being firm and truly jelly-like as the Josie Maran Gelées are, the Pop Up Jelly Blush seems to be closer to a gel/mousse hybrid. It is much more liquidy and is soft to the touch. You could easily get away with using your fingers to apply the Givenchy blush, but I've been using my trusty stippling blush.

There is no shimmer or glitter in this blush at all, but the sheer formulation allows your skin's natural radiance to come through. I quite like the fresh and natural look that this blush gives, but for me it isn't an absolute 'must have'. The color and texture aren't hugely unique, so you may already have something similar in your collection. But Givenchy devotees such as myself may want to grab it, especially as it is limited edition.
