Givenchy Lipstick Review

I love Givenchy lipstick, but I do not like the cases. Okay that’s my review, thanks for reading.

Haha, no. But that does pretty much sum it up. The lipstick is amazing. It is a really silky texture that glides on beautifully. The colors are rich in pigment, and I find the range of colors offered very aesthetically pleasing. Givenchy lipstick is high-quality, luxury lipstick.

But the cases annoy me. They hardly fit in my lipstick organizers, although almost every other lipstick brand does. I guess they thought it was a cute idea to have the little pully string, but I find it awkward. It’s unconventional in a way that isn’t at all practical, as far as I am concerned.

From left to right: Elegant Rouge, Illicit Raspberry, Rouge Interdit, and Rouge Cancan.

Illicit Raspberry and Rouge Interdit are two of my all-time favorite lipstick colors. The former is a delicious berry shade, and the latter is a bright hot red. I would carry them with me a lot more often if I didn’t totally dislike the cumbersome cases, that for whatever reason, Givenchy thinks are better than more conventional cases. Remotely cute, but mostly impractical, Givenchy. Your gorgeous, quality lipsticks deserve better.
