Givenchy is one of my favorite brands, be it the formula, the shades, the range of products, and the packaging, I am a fan of everything from this house. Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt Lipstick is a long time love since I reviewed it on the blog a few months back, here is the link to all the products in Givenchy L’Autre Noir 2017 Autumn-Winter Collection. The lipstick is a must-have if you are looking for hydrated, plump, and beautiful lips.
The must-have Le Rouge Sculpt Lipstick which is Givenchy’s first two-toned lipstick and it offers color and contour on a single stick. The key points include: it restructures the lips with a single stroke, its sculpting volume enhancing effects reshape the smile. The lips are adorned with a luminous shade, while the darker graphic contour perfectly reshapes the mouth. This comes in five color combinations, each featuring a vibrant inset shade highlighted by its own structuring shadow. This contour shade of the lipstick is enriched with a revealing black made from eosin to bring out the inset.
This lipstick has all the qualities of the Le Rouge range. It has a creamy texture for a comfortable semi-matte finish, with very concentrated pigments to ensure maximum coverage. It does include beeswax and Hyaluronic acid to build up the volume and moisturize the lips. The fragrance in this lipstick is the same as the original Le Rouge. The shades available are No 1 Sculpt’in Rouge, No 2 Sculpt’in Violine, No 3 Sculpt’in Fuchsia, No 4 Sculpt’in Corail, No 5 Sculpt’in Rose.
When I first saw this lipstick, I thought how these two colors will work and look on the lips, and when I used this, they look so beautiful on the lips. They mix up really well on the lips. The outer contour shades define the mouth and the inner red shade gives the color. The result is a really beautiful amalgamation of the two shades giving me a nice color and moisturized plump lips. I would say this works very well if you don’t even use a lip liner. By two or more applications, more intense color can be achieved. Also, if I am not looking for the contour and color defined separately, I would just apply this lipstick and rub my lips together to have the color and the pumping effects of eosin on the full lips. The shades in all the bullets are chosen and coordinated so beautifully that they give the most beautiful look when applied.
From the swatch of the lipstick, you can see it looks like a normal lipstick because I have used it the way I normally apply these but if you see in the post I linked above, the swatch shows the brown shade separate from the colored shade. The below swatches show the shade that is the finish when the contour and the inner shade is mixed.
Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt has limited edition lipstick as mentioned earlier and is still available online at Sephora, Net-A-Porter, and Saks Fifth Avenue. So if you want to indulge in this luxurious beauty, I would recommend you to check it now before it is sold out.
