Floral and bright, Givenchy did capture my heart. A limited edition I have been patiently stalking for months, Givenchy Couture Edition Intense Color Sensuously Mat Lip Color 205 Fuchsia Irresistible finally landed on zilla’s woman cave and I could’t be more ecstatic. It is the most beautiful vibrant fuchsia exquisitely encased in the most beautiful floral leather tube. Jaw-droppin’, mouth-poppin’, if zilla’s rappin’, you know she’s lovin’.
Superbly opaque in one pass, this lipstick is semi-matte, creamy and ultra-hydrating. Wear time is five hours, give or take. I am an avid fan of Givenchy lipsticks because they have not failed me in the formula department and everything I have blindly purchased turned out to be phenomenal.
Compared to its predecessors, this particular limited edition release is by far the most popular so in case you spot one at Sephora or Barneys, buy it in a heartbeat because it sells really really really fast.
For reference, gold and silver limited editions are still available at Sephora. I have reviewed Rose Plumetis (rose mauve tube, berry, Fall/Winter 2014), Violine Precieux (gold tube, rose berry, Holiday 2013), Rouge D’Exception (silver tube, brick red, Fall/Winter 2013) and Rose D’Exception (silver tube, rosy nude, Fall/Winter 2013). Love the shade but can’t find the elusive floral case? hear ye, read ye! It’s available in the regular Le Rouge line, also called 205 Fuchsia Irresistible.
Hot pink is a perennial favorite but it gets the most attention vis-a-vis wear in the summer. With sweltering weather comes smashing puckers. Ready to stop traffic?
