Given the price I'd expect more from this foundation it's not the most full coverage foundation I have tried and not the most matte either. Doesn't feel like anything special to me and there are other cheaper brands out there whichever do a better job with better coverage so it's a no from me.

I bought this one in summer.usually my skin is almost normal-combination in summertime.my forehead and nose gets a bit shiny but when I touch it it's not oily at all(I don't know why it shines!).other parts of my skin look like normal but if I wear a foundation without applying moisturizer(any foundation)it gets flakey and cakey
I asked SA to introduce me something with medium coverage and natural finish and I said that I prefer my foundation to have SPF(I'm too lazy to wear a separate sunscreen cream).I told here that however my skin doesn't seem to be dry,it sometimes acts as a crazy dry skin so very thick and dry foundations and matte ones are a no-no for me
I remember she introduced me couple of foundations and I tried them on skin and hubby voted for this one.seeing the word"matte" in it frightened me but SA assured me that I'd like it.
back then it was the most expensive foundation I ever had so I had a lot of expectations and it didn't disappoint.unlike other matte foundations it blends on easily on my face and I love it's satin-like finish.it's not too matte but not dewy either.it makes my skin look fresh and as if I don't have much makeup on and I love this
It's not a full coverage foundation but I don't need to use any concealer while using it,except for my dark cycles.my skin looks evened out and flawless and I like the fact that it has buildable coverage and won't get cakey when I apply more than one layer.it also has very good longevity(without applying any primer or setting it with powder or spray)and after hours when it's about to fade,doesn't turn patchy and ugly,it just gradually fades away.it has a pretty scent but didn't cause any breakouts even though I have a sensitive and reactive skin.and I agree with below review that it has a good effect on my skin.my skin looked more healthy and I had less pimples and blackheads than usual
It was a perfect foundation for me but I haven't used it in recent two months for some reasons:
I bought it in shade "4 matte beige" it was good for my tanned skin in summer but now it's too dark for me..second and more important,my skin is dry now.when I used it two months ago it turned to be flakey in some parts and clinged to my dry patches even though I was using moisturizer
It's biggest CONS:
-It's expensive.I bought it for 55$
-It's not easy to find here.I know just one mall which has it
-It's packaging is annoying.It's easy to carry and take it to travel.find it cute but I also like to be able to see how much product is left in foundation tubes.It's also not easy to squirts sometimes,I think whenever I reach to it's last ml s it can be difficult to takeout the product.it also gets messy around it's spray part
After reading it's reviews and remembering how much I loved it,I've decided to give it another go tomorrow,this time with a richer moisturizer or I may blend it with some face oil.I hope it works as I'm sure there's still a lot of product left in it's tube
EDIT:
I'm reducing it from 5 lippie to 3
I gave it another chance today and now I'm ready to cry
It's orange-ish on my pale skin but this is not my only problem
I applied it on my bare skin and on the other side,I used moisturizer and then my foundation.it looked terrible on both side and emphasized on each of my dry patches and was very cakey(to be honest,it was even worse on moisturized part).it didn't have satisfying coverage either
I'm very sad because most of it is left and it was expensive.what a waste! I can't fully blame this foundation because nowadays 95% of foundations sit like this on my skin but I can remember how flawless and perfect once it was on my face!
It's totally useless for me now but I'm going to miss it's gorgeous scent.it smells exactly like rose petals

I'm on my 2nd bottle now and it's still one of my favourite foundations! It's an excellent daily foundation, light-medium coverage and it last all day. I used to be a tour guide and I tour under the hot sun all the time and Givenchy Eclat Mattisime is the only foundation I'd have on while touring. Nothing else compares! Another amazing thing about this foundation that not many knows is that your skin gets better upon wearing it often. I was told by the beauty consultant who assisted me for it. She swears by it and now I do too. I used to be acne prone but eversince I started wearing Eclat Mattisime alot, I don't get breakouts anymore (apart from the pms period lol) and my skin is more normal than oily and more evened out. I assure you I didn't change my skincare routine or diet while at it. The change is caused by Givenchy Eclat Mattisime itself. I have no explainations to how it can do magic on me, I don't bother to look it up (I mean it works on me so whatever).

I love the coverage of this foundation and the duration on the skin, never flakes it stays put, although I have combo/oily skin and next day after wearing this foundation I get 1 small pimple on my cheek or chin. The packaging may be a bit messy, but its a high end foundation i'd definitely buy again

I love everything about this product except the package. It gets messy in time, and I have to wipe it off every other day because it keeps drying up around the opening. Other than that, great product, medium coverage, no flaking..it looks very natural and the shades are awesome.

I was really eager to buy this foundation after I read the reviews here. However, after I bought it I wasn't really impressed with it, especially comparing the price with quality. I bought the shade 2 mat shell, it becomes slightly orangey after it settles on my face so when you are buying this wait and see how it settles down on your skin. The foundation claims that it gives a radiant matte finish and I can confirm that except for my nose area. My nose looked really shiny (not radiant) after I applied it and even when I powdered my nose, it was shiny again after 1-2 hours. So I don't recommend it to those who want a really matte finish.

EDIT: This product is not worth the money. It accentuates my dry patches like crazy even when I use a moisturizer and primer beforehand. Don't buy this stuff!

Absolutely HATE it!!!!

The thought of spending almost 35 euros on it (with a 25% discount) makes me wanna cry and I CANNOT EVEN RETURN IT!! :(((((((

I am NC25 and bought it in #5 Mat Honey since #4Mat Beige was ghostly white on me.

It looked good on me but the next day when i wore it to go for a walk with my boyfriend, OH MY GOD.

First of all, my face was ORANGE. Secondly, ABSOLUTELY NO COVERAGE! And third and most annoying, IT IS SO PATCHY AND HARD TO WORK!

The packaging is extremely cheap especially for such a high price, it opens up like a Zippo lighter and it doesnt even secure, meaning that it can open in your purse anytime. YUK!

Oh how i wish i hadnt spent my precious money. Such a waste, such a useless product.

DO NOT BUY! Save your hard earned money for something better.

This foundation gives me a flawless, airbrushed look. I use it with a Beauty Blender and a little bit goes a long way. I have tried several other foundations (Becca, MUFE, Mac), but nothing gave me nearly as soft and beautiful of a glow as this product. The fragrance is a little strong, but I have come to enjoy it. My only complaints are the price and packaging - I find the flip top to be awkward. I highly recommend it if you're in the market for a high-end foundation.

Bought this at the Sephora in Paris. That makes this product a little more special for me. But, glamorous Paris aside, here is my objective look at it:

Pros
- great color match to my VERY pale skin. And for that I am truly grateful because it is insanely difficult for me to find a product that I love that matches my skintone.
- Matte, but not in a drying kind of way. Very nice (this coming from a person who was not into matte product before this one)
- Actually FEELS great on the skin.
-SPF 20
-Nice smell. Not subtle, however, for those who may not prefer scents. The scent will forever remind me of that trip, so a personal pro!

Cons
- not so great coverage (light and buildable). So if you don't have much to conceal and cover, go for this product without hesitation. For those of us who do, concealer and loose powder overtop of this foundation are going to be your best friends.
- Bit on the pricier side

My color match was 2 mat shell
