Review, Swatches of 18 shades of Le Rouge + Giveaway Rules are here.


My eyes are my favorite part of me; not for how they look, but for how they see.

…Frau Feuerameise

There are a number of quotes on eyes with different comparisons, words, trying to describe the beauty of complexity which the eyes are and it is amazing to know how different individuals describe them. In any way, no one has ever denied that it all starts with the eyes, whether it is that first look you have on something, the first impression, and that love at first sight. Eyes are a favorite part of me too, it can keep in hundred secrets and can still be the most innocent and pure. For me, eye makeup always used to be the eye khol which my mother always had on. It was the homemade eye khol in India, which then was replaced by the brands she still loves.

And now, as you might have seen me on Instagram, my facial features, I believe can tell you that I have Indian Origin. Eyes are an important part of any face and as they say doorway to what is inside your mind and heart. I love a dark kohl on my lower lashline, off course smudge free and my eyes being sensitive, I am always very careful in choosing the ones which do not irritate my eyes and I stick to those. Then I did my fair amount of experiments on the eyeliner over the upper lashline, and in doing so, I feel that a very thin line on the upper lashline suits me and not the thicker eyeliner. So another point I always keep in mind while choosing the right eyeliner for over my upper lashline is that the liner should be easy to apply with think pointer to facilitate my requirement of think sharp line.

Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in 01 Black, 02 Chestnut and Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-Tip Eyeliner

I have been using the Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in 01 Black, 02 Chestnut and Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-Tip Eyeliner in Black. I am very impressed with three of them and in short words, they do fulfill all my requirements I mentioned above.

Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner

Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner (CAD $31) is described as a waterproof, pigment-rich khol eyeliner enriched with intense color pigments. Its long-wear formula resists humidity and glides seamlessly onto your lids. Its retractable pencil means the application is precise and fast, and its comfortable and smooth texture allows for all-day wear. The array of colors interplay with the seasons to define eyes year round. I have been using both the shades for my dark brown eyes. The formula is very silky and smooth, easily glides on my waterline and does not smudges. It says on well for over 8 hours on my waterline without the need to touch up. I go for the 02 Chestnut for my everyday work wear and on the days I need intense eyes and feel that more traditional vibes, I go for 01 black with is buildable to a very dark black on the waterline.  The formula does not irritate my sensitive eyes which are very easily irritated and red. The packaging is good with a retractable bullet of the eyeliner.

Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-Tip Eyeliner

Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-Tip Eyeliner (CAD $39) in Black is described as an elongated, felt-tip eyeliner that draws an ultraprecise line and packs intense pigment density into one smooth stroke. This fast-drying formula is an essential ally for captivating eyes. The versatile formula can create a subtle trace along the lash line or a deep, dramatic line that won’t smudge or flake. The ultraprecise felt tip never gets it wrong. I prefer a very precise thin line and this does the works very well. The color is dark black which is what I prefer most of the days. The formula is easy to apply, the pointer tip is soft yet easy to apply. The liner dries quickly once applied and does not fades or smudges. It stays on well all day for over 8 hours over my oily eyelids. I did read some not so nice reviews about this eyeliner but after using this for over a month, I am impressed by how this has been for my eyes.

I am talking about Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick.

And now, I have got the chance to share my review and swatches of 18 shades of Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick. If you have heard about them before, I am sure this would be on your wish list or you must have already bought it. And if you have not heard about them before, I assure you, you will fall in love.

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick - Review and Swatches

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick - Review and Swatches

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick (CAD $42) is a semi-matte lipstick and is one of the most comfortable semi-matte formula I have tried. The lipstick is encased in an elegant silver and leather tube. The texture of the lipstick is creamy and comfortable. The formula is highly pigmented and one stroke on the lips gives a perfect amount pigment with radiant, lasting color. The lips do not dry out but the formula is very moisturizing and the staying power is amazing, almost 4-5 hours on me without eating much, but I don’t mind to apply and reapply. The formula glides on very easily on the lips, it is very lightweight and ultra-smooth.

To apply it, it can either be applied straight from the bullet, after defining the lips with a lip liner or it can be used with the finger for longer staying power. I apply the lipstick with my finger to the lips and press them a bit. Then I apply the lipstick straight from the bullet to increase the intensity based on my need, this method does help the lipstick stay longer. This is a lipstick-as-accessory which looks great as well as works great.
