THE BEST HOLIDAY LIPSTICK: GIVENCHY LE ROUGE LIPSTICK
Ahhhh! I’m back yet again with another Sephora post but I had to squeeze this one in while the Holiday Bonus Event is still in full force. [See details & my picks HERE.] I already did two post covering the event and the must-haves and I wanted to get this one live ASAP so that you can shop these Holiday lipsticks while you have a chance to get 15% [VIB/Insiders] or 20% [Rouge] off. I actually was sent a few of these in PR and after my sister came to start working on our Christmas trees I started feeling all of the holiday vibes! I have always thought highly of the brand Givenchy in general – I have a kind of embarrassing story I will tell sometime actually. BUT! I used to ONLY use their mascara – I would save my pennies so that I could buy it because it made my lashes look like lash extensions! I would get stopped everywhere by people asking what mascara it was! Anyway, SO! I got a few shades gifted to me and just knowing that the brand is super good in general I decided I’d start by testing out the deeper red shade [333 ‘True Red’]. I really want to have a good staple red Holiday lipstick for Christmas and all. So I literally barely even touched my lips with it and BOOM! The color payoff was insane! I am talking – these are GOOD.
These Holiday lipstick colors apply beautifully but they feel super soft and almost like they are hydrating your lips in a way – but they not glossy at all – mainly matte / semi-matte. They are definitely not dry or drying. As soon as I put the darker red shade on that you see in the photos I got so excited to try the others! So being my typical self I tried the nude one ‘Beige Nu’ and it appears more pink on me – but it is the other color I am wearing in the photos. For the sake of photography / blogging I went ahead and snapped a few photos of the product before I messed them up because the entire presentation is so well done. There are 3 finishes – the Deep Velvet [I wore ‘Beige Nu’ in it and loved it!], the Le Rouge Night Noir which has a shimmer finish to it, and the Le Rouge which is the deep red I am wearing! I think over all I prefer the Deep Velvet and the Le Rouge – but that is mainly because I am not big on shimmer finish! I will definitely do a video showing you all how they look on my stories if you’d like though – let me know?!
You guys know how excited I get when I find a new product I like and I start talking a ton – and I’m trying to tone it down but I’m seriously so excited because I think many of you will really love this Holiday lipstick. Especially if you find a red shade that suits you because during the month of December I am ALL about red lips! I like a bright red mostly but I love a deeper red too if I am dressing up a bit more. I feel like the deeper red shades have a more elegant look and the brighter ones are more fun! The shade you will see me wearing in my stories today is [306 ‘Carmin Escarpin’] and I really like that one if I am wanting a bright, fun red lipstick. I love how red lips make your teeth look whiter AND a great red lip can be a huge statement and you can spend less time on your eye makeup! 🙂 I totally skipped eye liner and mascara for these photos!
Okay I am wrapping this Holiday lipstick post up! But just a reminder that the Holiday Bonus Event at Sephora does end on the 11th and you can get 15-20 off based on your Reward Status so make sure you place your order before the event ends!
