Le Rouge-À-Porter delivers balmy sheer colour in a skinny leather case.

My new lipstick is sooo classy.

So what if it doesn't have an innovative formula to brag about, like those Clinique Pops I reviewed the other day. And so what if it goes on more sheer than saturated, like the Cliniques AND the new, semi-weird Marc Jacobs Lip Crèmes (which I've got a review on coming up).

It comes in this sexy, skinny, real leather case, and that's almost all that matters:

Am I right?

Okay, I'll back up a bit. The prod I'm talking about is the new Le Rouge-À-Porter from Givenchy—a line of luxurious "whipped texture" lipsticks in 16 shades.

You might be familiar with Givenchy’s original Le Rouge lipstick formula, which is intense and semi-matte. 

Le Rouge-À-Porter is like a more casual spin-off, giving you a sheer finish, subtle shine and a lip-balmy feel. Like prêt-à-porter, or ready-to-wear, versus couture. Get it?

Here it is, cap off. I feel like this is the model of lipsticks—way taller and slimmer than the norm.

But what about how it actually wears? 

I only have this one shade to show you, which is 202 Rose Fantaisie, but I'm enjoying it a lot. The colour is a mid-Barbie-ish pink, which I don't usually like on myself, but it's sheer enough to let your natural lip tone peek through. So I find it quite flattering.

As for the feel, it's amazing. Anyone remember when I first lost it over the new "gloss-balm" category, when that was a new thing in 2011—and Givenchy Gelée D'Interdit was the best example?

Well, it's exactly like that, minus the extreme shine. It really coats your lips and hydrates them, and stays on really well. But even after I've eaten/drank off the actual product, I've found that my lips still feel nourished—like it actually managed to improve them over the time I wore it.

So like I said, nothing groundbreaking here, just an easy-to-apply product that feels great and looks even better!
