I will be starting with my reviews on “Amazing Givenchy Le Rouge” lipsticks, the sneak peak of which I had shown in my preview post a few days ago. Today’s review will be on the shade “103 Brun Creatéur.”
A semi-matte lipstick encased in genuine leather.
What it does:
Enjoy perfectly defined lips that last as long as you do—and a genuine leather goods item. This lipstick-as-accessory delivers intense colors and a semi-matte finish all in one stroke, and as the first lipstick to come in real leather, it imparts a soft, supple touch and sensual feeling.
My Experience with Givenchy #103 Brun Créateur Le Rouge Lipstick:
Packaging: The packing is absolutely classy and luxurious. The lipstick has a cap covered in genuine leather and has a decent amount of weight to it which gives it a feel of being a high-end product. Only the cap has weight to it, the tube inside is fairly light.
The cap has a slot in which the tube slides through with some resistance like 2 pieces of puzzle and closes securely.
Texture and Pigmentation: These lipsticks are super creamy and smoothand just glide on the lips like butter. There is a decent amount of slip to it which helps it not tug at all. It does go on evenly and opaque in one swipe, good enough to cover even pigmented lips.
Shade and Finish: The shade “103 Brun Creatéur” is described as a dusty rose color. It is a gorgeous MLBB shade on me and I love that it pairs well with most of my everyday light makeup looks and especially perfect for “no makeup” makeup days. This is a very flattering shade for those with light to light medium skin tones.
During the initial couple of hours of wear, the finish is creamy with a slight sheen and after that, it settles down to a more semi matte finish. The finish is not a flat matte instead it makes the lips look soft and supple.
Feel and look on lips: This lipstick was fairly hydrating during the initial hour of wear when it is still in the creamy stage, but once it settles to a more matte finish, it is neither too hydrating nor drying. It feels very comfortable and lightweight on the lips. Also, once it does settle to the matte finish, I can see it accentuating the fine lines and clinging to my dry patches just a little bit, only noticeable from up close. This can be fixed with swiping a fresh layer of the lipstick.
Staying Power: Staying power is pretty good. It stays for 6 hours with light snacks and drinks before I notice some fading. It does transfer and you will need reapplication after a full meal.
Fragrance: It has very subtle makeup type scent which is not at all noticeable once it is on the lips.
Overall, I am truly very impressed with this lipstick. I feel you get the best of both worlds of a creamy and matte lipstick with this semi-matte lipstick. I love the super creamy texture of it, the super wearable color and the decent staying power. This lipstick has found a permanent place in my handbag.
