This is a brief initial review, on this range also.
Inspiration : This is one shade out of the latest Givenchy lipstick collection, legend has it that for inspiration for this collection the artistic director for Givenchy makeup, Nicolas Degennes wanted to do something different for Givenchy Le Rouge, how so? By starting off with inspiration and ordering limitless amounts of different orchids from all over the world, thereby mixing different shades of these orchids into one lipstick.
Packaging : The leather and silver stud give an already different feel to other lipsticks in the drawer ( well mines still in the box, am I that God damn anal?! ). I'm drawn more to use it, even though I'm not!! There's bullet points on either side of the lipstick that need to be correctly positioned before you close it. That may annoy some, when your rushing you just want to slot it in, not play rubix.
Colour/Tone : Carmin Escarpin is a orange, red. The tone of this lipstick really does depend on the lighting, I hope I got it just, in the natural light, might be a tad darker.
Scent : Even the scent of this lipstick is sweet, it doesn't have a vanilla smell but there's a scent to it, *goes to investigate* the scent is "Infused with a delicate fragrance of powdery mimosa and blackcurrant notes"
Pigmentation & Lasting : It goes on a little semi-matte but the colour is one to build onto, it's soft, moisturising and last me about an hour or so but this is with most lipsticks and me, drinking, talking, eating - little can withstand all of that nearly each hour.
