Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto has been one of my top five lip balms aka maximizer aka pink enhancer since last few years. I did review it last year here.  Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto is an ultra-moisturizing balm, a plumping, and color-boosting concentrate with a pink finish, the all-in-one Rouge Perfecto is available in three new customized shades this year in 2018.

Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto

The three new shades include:

No 1 Perfect Pink – Original 

No 2 Intense Pink – a pink for an ultra-intense result (new)

No 3 Sparkling Pink – a peach pink encrusted with silver pearlescent particles for a ‘party glow’ look (new)

No 4 Blue Pink – a plum pink sprinkled with pearlescent particles for a ‘disco-ball’ effect on the lips (new)

Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto

The 3-in-1 Rouge Perfecto formula combines moisture, lip care, and natural color in one. It is an innovative complex that instantly plumps up lips while its melting texture with shea extract offers hydration and comfort. It works perfectly to repair and soften even the driest lips, like mine. The eosin contained in the formula reacts to the lips’ pH for a natural and customized effect.

The packaging is perfection, sheathed in the same pink leather as the original Le Rouge Perfecto, along with metallic tube encapsulating the product. The new Rouge Perfecto shades are a great addition to create a fresh and natural look. It is easy to apply, keeps my lips moisturized, comfortable throughout the day, I do reapply after few hours though but overall, it really treats my dry and peeling lips making them look plump and pink. Another great thing is, it will look different on different people, means it reacts with the lips pH and imparts the color to lips based on the person’s respective pH value of lips. The sparkle in the new shades is not intense but very beautiful, you will be able to notice it and it looks so natural and beautiful, can be used as an everyday lip balm and lip tint with add-ons of plump and moisturized lips which look very youthful.

I would highly recommend you to check Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto if you have not tried it yet. And if you are a fan of it like me, you need to check the new shades, they are gorgeous. Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto is available at Sephora and Holt Renfrew.

Concealers are such multi-purpose products that are one sure shot which helps you look fresh, radiant, and youthful. Rodial has launched a new concealer, Rodial Diamond Concealer, which I have been testing since last few weeks, and few of you might already know that from my Instagram stories. First thing first, I am really liking how this concealer works, I use a very little amount under my eyes and it just makes my whole face lift up and lit up, if you know what I mean.

Rodial Diamond Concealer

Rodial Diamond Concealer is described as a sublime fluid-cream concealer which provides an immediate flawless and traceless finish, covering and neutralizing blemishes and dark circles. The lightweight formula melts effortlessly into the skin, creating an airbrushed, healthy radiance. Imperfections are perfectly camouflaged while minimizing the depth of shadows and wrinkles. A natural, luminous effect with medium to full coverage, which sits smoothly on the skin without drying or creasing. The buildable texture can also be layered throughout the day for quick touch-ups.

The key ingredients include Diamond core powder which works to create a flattering, youthful appearance to skin, Sea Fennel Extract which helps to boost collagen production to smooth and firm fine lines, Vitamin E that protects skin from damaging free-radicals while repairing and hydrating the skin.

I am using Shade 30 for my medium tan skin tone. It has a yellow undertone, warm shade, for light to medium skin. The texture is lightweight, yet creamy fluid, blends in seamlessly into the skin, sets to a semi-matte, velvet finish. The staying power is really amazing, stays on for over 7 hours and does not crease or sticks to the problem areas.

To use, ‘Using the precise cushion-tip applicator, apply a small amount to the area of imperfection and either gently dab with the fingertip to blend, or use the Eye Sculpt brush to gently blend into the skin. For best results, use Rodial Baking Powder to set for a long-wear finish. The buildable texture can also be layered during the day for quick touch-ups.’

Rodial Suede Lips

Suede lips are jumbo lip crayons with long-lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with Vitamin E and has a creamy texture, allowing the color to glide on effortlessly for smooth looking lips with a pop of color. They are highly pigmented and have a matte finish.

They have a good pigment and glide on easily on the lips, they are comfortable to wear and stay on well for over 4 hours until I feel the need to touch up. The formula is not drying and does not emphasize or clings to the lips when my lips are dry.

Rodial Eyeshadow Palette is described as an ultimate capsule collection of complementary nude shades for the eyes. In a classic Rodial mini-palette, this contains a range of six neutral, high pigment shadows to define the lids and line the eyes for the woman on-the-go. With a selection of matte and pearl shades, you can create a range of looks, from the everyday neutral sculpted eye to a more dramatic smokey eye for the evening. The silky soft texture is easily blendable whilst providing long-lasting wear to take you from day to night.

This is a beautiful nude palette for an everyday look. The formula is pigmented and blends in very easily. It does not smudge or fall off and stays put with an eye primer for a whole day and without the eye primer, it stays on well for over 6 to 7 hours. I do give it some time to blend and set it which avoid creasing.

I am also enjoying the brushes from Rodial, they are very soft and dense, makes the application of the product a breeze. The Airbrush Foundation Brush is a multi-functional wonder brush with densely packed soft touch bristles that form a full, firm domed shape for effortless makeup application that blends seamlessly into skin. The tapered tip allows for the easy and equal application of foundation and concealer products to difficult to reach areas. Also allows for precision powder application across the T-zone and hollows of cheekbones. The result is a perfectly even, airbrushed finish.

You’ll be able to apply your powder with ease and precision and it’s the ideal tool for buffing and dusting off excess powder so you can achieve that flawless suede matte finish to your complexion.

The Eye Blending Brush with densely packed, dome-shaped bristles the Eye Blending Brush is the perfect multi-tasker, ideal for all over shadow application, blending, shading and contouring, allowing you to create a variety of looks from subtle to sultry.
