Givenchy Beige Caraco, Beige Deshabille, Rose Ruban Le Rouge Lipsticks

Givenchy Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz. each) recently released twelve new shades in the range, and I purchased all twelve through Sephora. I’m working my way through testing each one, so you should reviews sooner rather than later! The formula is described as having a semi-matte finish and intense, “one stroke” color. Each lipstick is housed in a tube that is encased in a thin layer of leather. They are rose-scented with no discernible taste. You can see all the shades I’ve reviewed previously here. Here are reviews for the first three I’ve tested:

Givenchy Rose Dentelle & Prune Taffetas Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows

These are the last of the Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) shades I have to review! You can check out previously reviewed shades here. :) The brand describes them as “creamy, waterproof, [and] long-lasting.” It’s a cream-to-powder formula, so it feels like a cream initially but dries down to a powder finish. Givenchy actually states that this lasts for 16 hours, which is quite a tall order and one that I haven’t found any shade to live up to (or even last close to that).

Givenchy Blanc Satin, Bleu Soie, Gris Organza Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows

Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a more recently released cream eyeshadow that’s supposed to be “creamy, waterproof, [and] long-lasting.” It’s a cream-to-powder formula, so it feels like a cream initially but dries down to a powder finish. Givenchy actually states that this lasts for 16 hours, which is quite a tall order. I reviewed three shades here, and I have a few more to share with you now.

10 Cheek & Face Products to Try at Sephora

Here are some of my personal recommendations for cheek and face products to pick up while Sephora’s offering 15% off! Beauty Insiders use code TICKET, VIBs use code VIBTICKET, and Rouges use code ROUGETICKET. :) Feel free to share your recommendations for other readers to try!

  1. Clinique Cheek Pop (review) are so incredible, I can recommend every single shade without hesitation. Great texture, pigmentation, and not too pricey! (Pictured: Plum Pop)
  2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (review) are soft, lightly luminous blushes that are great for everyday wear. They’ve gone in and out of stock during the sale, so you might have to look in-store for them if they’re on your list. (Pictured: Ethereal Glow)
  3. Make Up For Ever HD Blush (review) are forgiving, easy-to-use cream blushes that wear well, come in a variety of shades, and have a great texture. (Pictured: #215)
  4. Guerlain Meteorites Pearls (review) is a fantastic way to add subtle glow and softening to the face after applying your favorite foundation, and they’re an indulgence to be sure! (Pictured: Clair)
  5. Givenchy Le Prisme Blush (review) is incredibly finely-milled, velvety, and smooth in texture, so the blush goes on evenly and looks natural on the skin. (Pictured: It-Girl Purple)
  6. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (review) might be “old news” now, but they’re products that can easily be used often and add soft luminosity to the skin. (Pictured: Luminous Light)
  7. Benefit Rockateur Box o’ Powder (review) is a sweet fix for a craving for rose gold.
  8. Illamasqua Blusher (review) is a lovely option for anyone looking for more satin and matte finish blushes. (Pictured: Lover)
  9. Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush (review) is a richly pigmented, long-wearing, silky-smooth formula. (Pictured: Sensous Rose)
  10. Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder (review) is a classic option for a finely-milled, silky-smooth, long-wearing bronzer. (Pictured: Moyen Brunettes)
