I am not the one to shove my drawers full of lipsticks though there comes moments when I crave a little bit of colour on the lips. Most of the time I go for the nude ones. Lets face it – the touch ups are the pain in nether regions with bright colours.
I have to admit that I picked up Givenchy Le Rouge in 103 Brun Createur on a complete whim. Liked the colour, had a bad day…that’s how stuff like this happens. Just take a look at the package – leather, spikes… The Brun Createur is dusty rose colour and a perfect nude shade for me. Pigmentation of it is amazing. With just one swipe you get completely opaque lip colour. The lipstick itself applies like a dream. It practically melts onto your lips. It’s a semi-matte without glitters, shimmers and all that jazz. It doesn’t slide around, but there is no dryness one get with matte lipsticks. Though bare in mind that it tends accentuate patchy lips, so don’t forget to scrub them beforehand.
