Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

I see new releases literally every day, so I don’t get excited that often. But when I saw the photos of Givenchy’s Le Rouge lipstick I thought that is was a mind-blowing collection! I also knew that I had to get it!

I have bought it only last week, although it was released back in February, because the lovely  Givenchy PR actually sent me some lipsticks and polishes to show you and I did not want to get the same shades, so had to wait.  But the samples got lost, thanks to the glorious post workers, along with some of my other post…

I bought  the lipstick for my Birthday anyway, as I wanted at least one shade for my personal use.

The thing is that there are different shades available in different countries and I had my fingers crossed that I would be able to buy 302 Hibiscus Exclusif  which was the shade that attracted me. Luckily, I was able to find it.

So what is so special about Le Rouge?

First of all, this is the best lipstick design that was ever created, I don’t think I could love it more. It is leather with silver metal with engraved Givenchy logo on top  and “Givenchy” written both on the bullet and the cap. There are also two studs that look really cool. The package feels heavy and luxurious!

The lipstick formula is gorgeous, it is smooth, non-drying and pretty long-lasting. It smells nice, as well. Le Rouge has a semi-matte finish which is my favourite, I find that it looks more flattering on, than very matte lipsticks.

As for this particular shade, it is a gorgeous warm pink which is  vibrant enough to brighten up the look but is still very wearable and appropriate for a day time and for work (at least I think so).

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful “accessory” a girl can ask for and I have been obsessing with  mine and have been telling all my girlfriends to get it.

As you  can guess, I have been wearing it non-stop  ever since I’ve got it.

This is how it looks like on the lips.  But I’d say that in real life the colour is deeper and brighter actually.

Hibiscus Exclusif shade makes me think of Spring and will be definitely wearing it a lot!


You can buy this shade from Harrods for £25 or from Sephora for $26.

      Hi Grace, this may be a EU only shade (I don’t know exactly), it’s not available in the UK, too. The closest shade (from those that I saw) was 301.

  2. SO pretty! It looks like a really Spring friendly shade. I can see why you’ve been obsessing! Really loving the packaging too.
