In Leather. In Colors. The ultimate Couture lipstick reinvents itself with a balmy and sensorial texture…
The perfect balance between lipstick and lip care, this ultra-elegant leather-clad whipped lipstick is your best ally for a casual chic, ready-to-wear look.
Like all must-have fashion accessories, it comes in a wide palette of 16 shades, from the most nude to the most sophisticated.
Givenchy finally came out with the line of lipsticks that is as classy and elegant as Le rouge but not as opaque in coverage. I am head over heels with le rouge a porter line! I do not even know where to begin because I love everything about it.
Packaging is the nicest and most luxurious I have ever seen in lipsticks. It is covered in real leather. It is slim but again heavy enough to give that luxury feel to it. It is thinner and slightly longer than their Le rouge packaging.
I have very dry lips and love only sheer wash of color on my lips – these are absolutely perfect for me. If you love Rouge coco shines from Chanel I think you would like Rouge a porter also (and they are in the same price range).
Texture is silky, moisturizing, almost balmy but not sticky. Even though they are sheer with one or two swipes color and intensity can be built. I think you would be surprised how different they look when color is built – much more intense and semi opaque in coverage. Givenchy added hyaluroinic acid to help retain moisture on lips.
Application is a like a dream. They glide on without tugging and go on perfectly evenly. These are kind of lipsticks you apply without needing a mirror (or a lipliner).
Finish is satin shiny. No shimmer in these.
I chose 4 colors based on online description and very few swatches I could find.
103 Beige plumetis is a light beige with strong peachy undertone.
104 Beige florale is light beige with a bit more of brown to it.
106 Parme Silhouette is for me unique mauve that I do not have in my stash at all.
201 Rose aristocrate is brighter than it seems rosy pink that leans warm.
Yes these cost an arm and a leg – 36$ a piece at Sephora (where I purchased mine). But honestly I do not regret it. For this level of quality and packaging that is pure work of art it doesn’t suprise me it costs this much. Chanel rouge coco shines are also 36$ and compared to these come in very plain black plastic packaging. (I do love rouge coco shine formula though)
I have been loving Givenchy a lot lately. It is simple line without too many products but what they offer is the highest quality. I would love to try their liquid foundation and powder foundation but their shade selection is terribly limited.
