If you've been following me on Twitter, you'd know that I recently swapped my Tom Ford lipstick to this Givenchy Le Rouge. A bit of an unfair exchange (cost-wise) but knowing how much I like the Le Rouge's formula, and coupled with the thought that I can't just seem to like how that certain TF lipstick look on my lips, I gave in.
Givenchy Le Rouge in 201 Rose Taffetas ($36) is described as a "light pink coral" but honestly, it pulls a little too warm on me to be described as "light." Nonetheless, it is gorgeous. Like the Brun Createur, Rose Taffetas gives a very opaque, semi-matte finish. It will also stay on forever - or at least until after you eat and drink.
The Le Rouge is encased in, by far, the most sophisticated looking lipstick packaging I've ever seen - it's clad in a silver metal casing with genuine lambskin leather. The Givenchy logo is also embossed in both the bullet and the lipstick itself. While the Tom Ford Private Blend looks very masculine-chic, the Le Rouge screams luxe. The only downside for me is that the packaging doesn't fully close - wriggle the bullet a bit, and the lipstick will fall out. It's kind of annoying and inconvenient as I can't really just chuck this inside my bag. Or did I just get a dud?
I'm itching to buy 307 Grenat Initie next - but I honestly have too many red lipsticks already! (I also still really want Tom Ford Wild Ginger................... not to mention Giorgio Armani #400 The Red.)
What will be your next lipstick purchase? ;)
Lipstick Week has finally come to an end. I feel kind of at lost to know that I won't be writing about lipsticks anymore (I mean in an every day basis - watch me review another lipstick by next week), except I'm kind of relieved also, to be honest. I thought that writing about lipsticks would be the easiest thing ever seeing as it's my absolute favorite, but nope.. IT'S SO HARD. :o
