I heard many goodie goodie talks about GIVENCHY LE Rouge Lipsticks. I have been lusting to try other brands except MAC. Don’t get me wrong, MAC will always be my favorite brand in the world. Anyway the shade I have today is –MANGOLIA ORGANZA. This is my first ever Givenchy Lipstick and the shade looks so beautiful. Words are not enough to explain how excited I was to get my hands on this lipstick.

Givenchy Le Rouge 301 Magnolia Organza describes as a – bright reddish pink. To be precise it looks quite close to MAC Impassioned but lighter and less neon. It is a great alternative to a red lipstick. It is perfect for summers and springs. I was confused between Magnolia Organza and Fuchsia Irresistible, but online swatches sometimes are so confusing, when I swatched this I saw quite similar shades are already resting in my vanity. I like bright shades and see how luxurious it feels. For me this is an everyday kind of shade which not only looks luxurious but feels luxurious too.
Look at the packaging- the leather casing metallic cover is something I never had in my stash. It’s a high time that we select lipsticks not by shade but by packaging, atleast I do. Not only the outer case but the bullet has Givenchy trademark designed on it.
The Texture is creamy and very moisturizing on the lips. The applications goes on smoothly. The lipstick is not the most long lasting, but it’s easy to reapply and I wouldn’t consider it a high-maintenance product at all. It stays quite a long time on lips about 3 hours without any meal, but reapply after meal. The colour saturation is high and gives Opaque finish in just one swipe. Le Rouge set as demi-matte finish on lips after few minutes and doesn’t feel sticky or heavy. They are extremely comfortable on lips. Givenchy Le Rouge formula contains beeswax to give a rich creamy and moisturized texture, and hyaluronic acid microspheres that hydrates, rejuvenate and plump the lips.This type of formula needs to work on a smooth base therefore, proper exfoliation and moisturizing is necessary. It doesn’t look splotchy, it doesn’t feather but transfers if you having any oily food. It has a weird baby powder scent to it which vanishes right after applying (sorry I am terrible in explaining the fragrance).
WHAT I like about Givenchy Le Rouge 301 Magnolia Organza:
- Shade is rich pinkish red- On me it’s more towards pink than red.
- Staying power is moderately good.
- Love the packaging. So sleek, modern and luxurious. Black leather with metallic casing is freaking sexy!
- Beautiful in and out.
- Very creamy and moisturizing.
- Feels light on lips.
- Doesn’t look splotchy or bleed.
- Gives an opaque coverage.
- Rich Pigmentation.
WHAT I don’t like about Givenchy Le Rouge 301 Magnolia Organza:
- Price of course. *facepalm*
- Wish it could stay put on lips for more hours.
Yes. I do recommend based on light weight, rich colour pigmentations, moderately good staying power, Non drying moisturizing feeling. Shade is perfect for summers and fall. The Shade is pretty and can be used daily day or night. Price is steep but seeing the formula, it is totally worth it.
