I’m a huge fan of the Givenchy LeRouge formula in general and have about a dozen shades and building in my stash. If you like super creamy, slightly thicker but lightweight, highly pigmented lipstick, this could be a perfect formula for you. I chose this shade, Rose Plumetis, as a casual day lip colour. For me, this works as a MLBB shade and is very similar to my actual lip tones. I was drawn to this particular shade as it runs a little cooler and plummier than others of similar ilk. I have neutral skintones and find this extremely flattering against my skin whereas most shades in this range pull more nude/warmer and look rather unremarkable. This one just gives me that little extra oompf.
Givenchy Rose Plumetis (207) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pinky mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a light shine. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied beautifully without tugging or dragging. The color lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is warmer, less pink. Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is brighter. Givenchy Brun Vintage (105) (P, $36.00) is a touch lighter, but it is very, very similar. MAC Mystical (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Estee Lauder Intense Nude (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer. Buxom Centerfold (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, pinker. NARS Last Tango (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more matte. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is similar. MAC Mehr (P, $16.00) is more matte, lighter. MAC Craving (P, $16.00) is darker. Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
