Ready-to-wear: Givenchy Le Rouge-À-Porter lipticks

Lip-tastic treat

Givenchy’s latest lipstick offering has all the couture touches of their original Le Rouge lipsticks, but comes in an easy-to-wear balm

For the practical-minded woman, comfort plays a huge role on a daily basis. She'll probably forgo stilettos in favour of ballerina flats for her daily commute and won't want too much hardware on her designer bag — because it adds extra weight. But that doesn't mean she's willing to compromise on style. Givenchy's newest lipstick is the perfect lippie for her in more ways than one.

Givenchy Le Rouge-À-Porter

Unlike traditional lipsticks, it's a comforting balm with a luminous colour and natural, shiny finish. The slim lippie is still ultra-stylish as its housed in a black leather, studded case that wouldn't look out of place with Riccardo Tisci's designs. And with 16 colours ranging from buttery-soft nudes to more lush mocha and deep purple hues, she won't have to compromise on fashion-forward shades.

Mariacarla Boscono

Hubert de Givenchy was inspired by the late beauty Audrey Hepburn and it's no coincidence that the campaign model for this lipstick Mariacarla Boscono (Tisci's own muse) bears more than a passing resemblence to Hepburn. With her quietly chic and elegant beauty, Boscano is the perfect face to represent this gorgeous new lipstick.
