It’s not every day one of the most exquisite beauty brands sends you your very own personalised lipstick! I have the gorgeous red-orange Carmin Escarpin from the Givenchy Le Rouge sensuous mat collection, and not only is the lipstick itself beautiful, but the casing engraved with my name makes it a super stylish accessory!
Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in 306 Carmin Escarpin*
Isn’t it lush? I was so excited to use it I broke the cardinal sin of blogging, and tried it without photographing first! Tsk..
It’s a very creamy lipstick, but what I like about it is that you can build up the pigment and really have control over how you wear it. I prefer to blot and blend it into my lips, as opposed to working a strong lip line, however as a statement lip it also works great. Really comfortable wear, very nourishing and keeps your lips looking supple and healthy without being too greasy; hence the name sensuous mat.
For some reason it photographs on me a little cooler than it is, so it’s a tad brighter in reality, but really not that much once blended in like this. Oh, and sorry about the moody face/pursed lips!
