I absolutely ADORE my nudes! That is why I decided to write a mini series dedicated to all my favourites ( NOT all the nudes in my collection do not worry!), structured by my favourite brands.
This post is dedicated to my amazing Givenchy Le Rouge‘s. I always bust them out during this period as they are the “darkest” nudes in my collection, and so close to the beautiful Autum colours.
There is no simple way to describe how gorgeous Givenchy Le Rouge lipsticks are! They are amazing starting with their leather case packaging, followed by how creamy and moisturizing their formula is and how long-lasting they are!
I fell in love with this lipstick! It is not drying, so opaque and you will get intensly pigmented colours on your lips with only one swipe! It also delivers a semimatte finish, all in one stroke. I never thought that I would ever say something like this about a makeup item, but Givenchy Le Rouge is my most sensual looking/feeling lipstick, and it is the only lipstick I own ( and know ) that comes in a genuine leather packaging.
Is the real leather unnecessary? Absolutely! But as the lipstick obsesed/hoarder/lover that I am, the effort Givenchy put into creating this lipstick is much appreciated! And, luckily, the formulation is one of the best I have ever tried!
I think that even if the formulation was not great, it would still had been a beautiful “collector item”, as it looks amazing on any vanity!
My first Givenchy Le Rouge nude I bought was #102 Beige Plume, a light-medium beige; more of a peachy-beige lipstick with warm coraly undertones which delivers a natural finish on my lips. It is so pigmented and the colour gives opaque coverage. There are no shimmers in this lipstick which makes it more wearable, in my opinion! The fact that it is so creamy makes it so easy to apply as the lipstick literally glides on your lips. An amazing experience, let me tell you!
My second choice was #103 Brun Createur. Brun Createur reminds me a lot of Burberry Lip Mist in #04 Rosewood, only that “mon” Givenchy Le Rouge is more matte. On my lips it shows up as a warm-tonned dusty rose, with the same luminous matte finish as Beige Plume.
It also applies flawlessly – opaque and with full on colour coverage, making the lips look smooth, full and plumped.
Both lipsticks are creamy, moisturizing and last on my lips for over four hours. They do not cling or accentuate any dry patches, on the contrary! They moisturize my lips helping them recover faster. They fade evenly and also did not transfered on my teeth or gathered in my lip crevases. There is no need to previously line your lips as these lipsticks do not “bleed”! I could not recommend them enough!
I literally cannot wait to share my other nudes with you! Next post of the mini series will be up next month!
Have a warm and sunny Autumn, beautiful!
See you soon!
