Hello, hello! I hope everyone is having a wonderful start on their weekends.
As promised, here is a review of the other Givenchy Le Rouge I purchased from their Fall 2014 collection.
In my excitement, after I unboxed it, I tried it on first before remembering I haven’t taken a picture yet. Oops. Forgive me, it looks used in the photo above.
Rose Plumetis is described as a pinky mauve. On me, it shows up as a medium rosey mauve. It feels nowhere near like a semi-matte at first when I put it on because it starts off with a little bit of shine but soon ends with a satin finish. It’s non-drying and lightly hydrating on my lips– the same moisturizing power as the other Le Rouges. It offers full coverage and lasts for at least 5 hours before fading evenly.
With it being a limited edition, I hunted for a possible dupe in my collection. On my lip swatch, it reminded me of two MAC lipsticks so I took those out for a comparison.
Cosmo and Mystical both look warmer and more peachy looking compared to the cool-toned Rose Plumetis. Color-wise, it comes pretty close but the texture and pigmentation of a Le Rouge is miles away from any MAC lipstick.
Available at Sephora for $36.
