Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick


Leaves are turning shades and we find ourselves amid a rainbow of colourful leaves. The weather crisping up, wardrobes changing, and so are the contents of our make-up bags. And what better way to perk up your complexion than a bold red lip? Here I present you Givenchy Le Rouge Egerie (305), the newest addition to my lipstick wardrobe. Housed in a luxurious, soft leather case, a gorgeous coral red pops out. Initially bought to fit the seasonal transition – not that we had that much of a transition – but a gorgeous shade nonetheless.

Shade and luxury aside, the formula is what made me cave. It was love at first lip swatch: Smooth, creamy, and opaque. Note that I suffer from dry lips and making lipstick look good is an adventure on its own, but I had clearly not tried this range before. It smoothes over my lips without accentuating any lines, chaps, or flakes – impressive stuff. There was no doubt – I was going to adopt at least one! Described as a matte formula, but I’d rather call it a more satin finish. It feels genuinely comfortable onto the lips which is not common for “matte” formulas, but then again it’s not really matte … It’s not necessarily hydrating but it’s not drying either; Sometimes I dare to forget that I’m wearing lipstick and I’m not too sure if that’s a good or a bad thing. Imagine yourself smearing your lipstick without even realising – not the best look unless it’s Halloween. It’s opaque in one swipe and stays put for more or less an afternoon whereupon it gradually but equally fades into a beautiful stain. Definitely my kind of lipsticks, and if not careful, I might come home with a whole lot more of their lipsticks …

    All these Givenchy Le Rouge lipsticks!! I think yours is the 3rd I’ve seen JUST THIS WEEK! The urge to get one is getting stronger.. ugh! Such a beautiful formula judging from all the photos I’ve seen so far. The shade you got is STUNNING – suits you very well Alice darling!

      They are SO good, Shari. I suggest you plan a trip to your local Givenchy counter ’cause you need – at least – one into your life! ;) I, on the other hand, am very tempted to get my hands on the Nars Audacious lipsticks. They look so good as well! X

        Sadly (but fortunately for my wallets LOL), we dont have any Givenchy counters here. Only the fashion brand is available – cosmetics aren’t :) But yes another Audacious lipstick is always a good idea ;)

    Thanks Alexandra, I’m obsessed with oversized sweaters! If you’re after a comfortable and semi-matte lipstick you should definitely check out this range! Haven’t tried the Audacious lipsticks, wish there was a Nars counter where I live! X

      They had it on Asos but I don’t see them anymore. Will let you know if I find the shade I am looking for. xx
