Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen. Here come today’s pretties!
Givenchy Le Rouge 102 Beige Plume and 301 Magnolia Organza
Givenchy Le Rouge (CDN $38 / US $36, exclusively at Sephora) is a modern semi-matte lipstick. It is silky, lightweight and reflects light to bring dimension to the lips. Both shades I tried are packed with pigment so they cover the lips in one swipe. This is the best semi-matte formula I’ve ever tried. Its velvety texture is something I would liken to Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Foundation. It doesn’t migrate out of my lip lines after I apply; it just sets to a beautiful silky, almost powder-like finish. This lipstick is longer lasting than most of my lipsticks. It may or may not have outlasted a McDonald’s combo of quarter pounder with cheese and french fries. Ahem.
Givenchy Le Rouge — Packaging
Givenchy did not only make a great makeup product here, but they also cased the bullets in hefty, soft leather and chrome covers. Meow! So sexy. If the packaging was fugly I probably would still want to buy all the lipsticks! anyway.
Givenchy Le Rouge 102 Beige Plume
102 Beige Plume is peachy brown. On me, it is a warm nude colour that is a safe bet for the office. It’s sweet and demure, and so perfect.

At $38 a piece, Givenchy Le Rouge is definitely a luxury product, but one I’d bet most of you will love. This is pretty much holy grail material right here. Have you tried Givenchy Le Rouge? What are your thoughts on the formula?
