And so commences the massive task of finding a lipstick to wear for my wedding next September (eek). I found a dress surprisingly fast. Nail polish is easy. But lipstick? I’m looking for something that’s not too pink but not too nude, not too subtle but not too bright. Long lasting but not drying. Not matte but not too shiny. So basically a lipstick unicorn. I tried searching around on Pinterest, but most wedding makeup pins are actually terrifying.
I really like the formula of Givenchy Le Rouge 301 Magnolia Organza, a bright pink lipstick I bought sometime last year ago, so I decided to start my hunt with another Le Rouge lipstick in a different colour. After much deliberation, I chose Givenchy Le Rouge 201 Rose Taffetas, which is described as a light pink coral.
The Le Rouge lipsticks are super creamy and opaque, extremely long lasting but not drying at all. The leather cases are heavy and feel very luxurious, so definitely wedding appropriate. Rose Taffetas is a little thicker feeling and shinier than Magnolia Organza, but I liked that in this case.
I really like the 201 Rose Taffetas colour a lot and have already worn it a lot. The colour does seem to look slightly different depending on the light, but I think in general might translate as a little too bright and warm toned on me for what I want to wear for my wedding. Any suggestions?
