Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick ( 3.4 gms for 2750/- INR or $ 36 + TAX) is getting my all attention these days and so far you have Read my Review for # 205 Fuchsia Irresistible and # 303 Corail Decollete HERE and for # 304 Mandarine Bolero and # 307 Grenat Initle HERE and today I am sharing with you CARMIN ESCARPIN which is described as warm poppy red .
As the description says, it is orange based red shade with no shimmer but does have subtle luminous sheen to it, not hard to dupe but the texture is little different. It has soft, smooth and very light weight buttery texture but doesn’t slips off my lips or bleeds and settles in fine lines. This particular shade wore 4 – 5 hrs on my lips and then left a subtle red tint. I feel the texture is very comparable to MAC SATIN finish, long lasting but not very slippery like amplified cream.
All the shades I tried so far were consistent and I had no problems in any of them. They do need a little layering to get even finish; they are very light weight to feel even if you layer them.
I absolutely adore these but they are little too price at the moment, earlier they were selling it for 2.4 but not its more or less 2.7 K.
The packaging , you have seen this earlier as well ; looks gorgeous and feels luxurious without being hefty like Guerlain rouge gs. I like minimal packaging like Giorgio Armani or golden case like YSL , but still no complaints about this.
Here are the 3 new limited edition shades I picked recently , sharing swatches here and looks in few days :
308 Rouge D’exception , 311 Rose Précieux , 312 Violine Précieux
Here is how the color looks on my lips :
I hope you liked the shade on my lips ?
