Sometimes, the makeup industry kills me. One month we get lipsticks that are opaque in one swipe, the next day we get sheer lipstick balms.
Eh, I’m not complaining though. I think we need both textures in our lives! Somedays I want an easy to wear lipstick that I can just throw on without a lot of effort, and somedays I want bright, bold lips that will blind people. 😛
If I have to pick what lipstick brand is the most couture and fancy, it’d have to be Givenchy Le Rouge. From the sexy, heavy black leather case, to the divine formula-that expensive lipstick is beautiful and well worth the investment. I have two of them and my new goal is to get one every Sephora VIB Sale to soften the $$ blow. I think there’s a sale coming up soon, so…. 😛
But, if you’re looking for a a Couture Ready To Wear Lipstick-meaning easy yet elegant-then take a look at Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter!
This is a balm formula of the Le-Rouge Lipstick. And it feels SO GOOD on. It was love at first swipe for me and my lips! Especially since they’re super dry at the moment. Spring in Edmonton is like a roller coaster ride my friends. Today was 17C and gorgeous! Tomorrow, it’s going to be 2C and SNOW. Not a lot, but SNOW. My lips are freaking out people. They need moisture and fast!
Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter Lipstick is taller and slender than the Le Rouge Lipstick, but as you can see it still has the same sexy luxury case that’s made with genuine black leather and the metallic stud inspired by the Givenchy House fashion collections.
Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter has a unique combination of spheres of hyaluronic acid and natural microcrystalline waxes to protect lips and leave a subtle, shiny finish. It’s smooth and glides over lips leaving them feeling moisturized and soft! It’s very lightweight feeling too and feels great on your lips as you’re wearing it.
There are 16 shades to choose from! I have #303 Framboisse Griffèe, which essentially means scratched raspberry.
When I first saw Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter #303 Framboisse Griffèe, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to wear it. Berry Lipsticks are hard for me to wear. I think they age me.
But thanks to the sheerness, I can wear it! And love it. It lasts well too for a lip balm lipstick-I get a few hours of wear which amazes me. Comfortable wear too. And my lips feel better after it wears off. Bonus and much appreciated at this crazy weather time of year!
Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter Lipsticks will be available this month and will retail for around $40. Now, this is not a cheap one that’s for sure! But it’s really nice. And luxurious. And pretty. And COUTURE. It’s a Treat Yo’ Self Lipstick definitely! Maybe an Easter present for yourself instead of chocolate? Now that’s an idea, right? I want the Easter Bunny to bring me a BASKET FULL OF LIPSTICKS. EXPENSIVE ONES. Screw the chocolate ya’ silly bunny. Hand over the good stuff! 😛
So, I’m exhausted but happy today! I went to a 9 AM Zumba Class and then walked a 6.5 km walk with my hubby because it was so gorgeous outside today! Stupid snow tomorrow is ruining my life. Spring sucks.
What’s YOUR favourite high end, couture lipstick brand? Givenchy is mine hands down!
