Givenchy has introduced a new line of lipsticks to their fabulous beauty collection; the Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt two-tone lipstick collection. Now, let’s get one thing straight, I am not an expert make-up application person. I tend to wear eyeliner, foundation powder, concealer, blush, and lipstick. That is my daily routine. When I saw this two-tone lipstick, sent to me by Givenchy, I was excited, and frightened, at the same time. How does one apply two-tone lipstick? Yikes!
When I review a lipstick collection, I always like to photograph it before I smear it all over my lips. The first time I use it, is when I photograph myself wearing it. I became a bit nervous when I realized this lipstick is extremely creamy. If you are not careful while applying it, it will easily smudge on your lips.
This is two-tone lipstick. Due to the duel colors on the lipstick, you cannot rub your lips together to even out the color after you apply it to your lips. This would destroy the two-tone look you are going for. Instead, I realized all you can do it carefully apply it, and then blot with a Kleenex.
I do not currently own a lip-liner. There is something really ’90’s about lip-liner, and I can’t bring myself to purchase, and use, one. It brings back bad memories of the dark liner, frosty lipstick trend I regretfully followed. So, after I applied the Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt two-tone lipstick, I realized this is a lipstick which needs a lip-liner. So please excuse my less-than-perfect application shown below. I definitely need to break my perception and purchase a matching lip-liner for my favorite Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt lipstick, which is the “Sculpt’in Violine” hue. So pretty!! Just needs a lip-liner!!
In this photo, I am wearing my favorite color from the Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt two-tone lipstick collection, Sculpt’in Violine. As you can see, I need lip-liner. Hopefully this photo is enough to show you how the lipstick leaves a two-tone look on your lips; which is fashion-forward, and fun! I also discovered this lipstick color makes your teeth look a bit whiter. Love that!
Sculpt’in Violine offers a blue-purple main hue, flanked by a vampy purple hue on the edge. This creates a nice evening look which is perfect to wear now, and into the new year. After all, purple is the color of 2018! Love!
The other color from the Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt lipstick collection I was able to test out, was Sculpt’in Rouge. This is a bright red hue which is perfect for the holiday season. This lipstick also needs a lip-liner, so please excuse my uneven lip line. The Sculpt’in Rouge hue offers a bright, holiday red hue flanked by a reddish-brown color. This color does not go too well with my skin-tone, but my Mom looks amazing in this color so she is going to keep this lipstick. She is thrilled to wear it! She loves it!
If you love red lipstick, this is the perfect alternative to your basic red. It offers a chic, fashion-forward two-tone look which is perfect for holiday parties, and evening occasions in general.
All-in-all, the Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt two-tone lipstick collection is a fabulous alternative to wearing one color lipstick. Just remember, you need lip-liner! Unless you are uber talented and can make this soft, creamy lipstick apply perfectly. Then I bow to you! -and. . .um. . .can you teach me your tricks??
