GIVENCHY Le Rouge in Rose Dressing | Review.

Having missed the first time Sephora had the mini version of the GivenchyLe Rouge lipsticks ($38, available here) for a mere 100 points (I am still kicking myself – don’t worry), I jumped at the opportunity when it became available again with any online or in-store purchases. For a mere 100 points (which usually gets you a 2-3x use product), this was a perk not to be missed.

I have previously written reviews of the Givenchy Le Rouge Mandarine Boléro and Givenchy Le Rouge Matte in Violine Precieux which I can only sing praises for, I knew this lipstick will not disappoint. The GivenchyLe Rouge lipstick range features a formula worthy of $38 for the full-sized version of these lipsticks: creamy, hydrating, intensely-pigmented, long-lasting, smudge/transfer proof in 24 shades.

The full-sized lipstick is encased in a luxurious case of genuine leather, this range of lipstick defines luxury at its best. The perk/mini version however, is no less impressive. Let me tell you this: Givenchy is a master when it comes to presentation. Just look at the presentation of the mini perk – the lipstick is encased a pull-out box as soft as velvet, and the “Le Rouge” tissue paper, all for a small lipstick perk. Unlike the full-size tube, the mini-version does not have the leather casing, but still carries the Givenchy logo, and exudes so much glamour in one little tube.

The formula is described as being semi-matte, but capable of delivering the intense color in one stroke. The semi-matte formula ensures that it applies evenly, and does not dry out the lips. The creamy and smooth texture of the lipstick makes the application very delightful; Far from suffering the tugging, and feathering of the lipstick upon application, I could not be more impressed and happy with how quickly and put together I look with just one swipe of the lipstick.

The GivenchyLe Rouge Couleur Intense Lipstick is a true testament to the lipstick effect and I cannot fault it for being a leading economic indicator. I am unlikely to run out of my favourite pink shade too quickly, but I would not ruling out purchasing another shade (The shade 301 Magnolia Organza and 306 Carmin Escarpin are calling out my name).

The lipstick is available at Sephora for $38. While the price is not for the faint-hearted, the Sephora Chic Week or Family and Friends or the VIB sale is the perfect time to pick these up at slightly cheaper.
