Givenchy. Even the pronunciation makes me think "luxe". Zshee-von-shay! Can you feel the French-ness? Oh mon dieu! J'aime ce rouge à lèvres! I'd hoped to discover my next lipstick love from Givenchy's copious options, and after swatching the happiest cool pink of the bunch, I was in heavy like. I hoped it would turn to love after I'd had the chance to test it. Spoiler alert: it has!

Givenchy is a luxury brand that knows how to kick up the special with their packaging! You open the lipstick by pulling on the ribbon loop and a metal tube inscribed with their insignia slides out to reveal your lippie. For me, it's the thoughtful little touches like these that I love, and that I also think Tim Gunn would really appreciate. He would never need to remind the people at Givenchy to "use the accessory wall thoughtfully"; they've got it down!
Where to Buy: Givenchy, Sephora
