Givenchy Beauty Le Rouge Semi-Matte Lipstick Review

Givenchy Beauty Le Rouge Semi-Matte Lipstick Review
Product Description
So… the Givenchy Beauty Le Rouge Lipstick. It’s definitely an interesting, eye-catching lipstick, to say the least. Coming in a heavy, leather-coated tube, the product absolutely screams luxury, and it’s certainly very, very nice to look at, embodying the aesthetic of the Givenchy brand. These traditional bullet-type lipsticks look very pleasing once swiped, giving the lips a light coat of color. And also, despite being a semi-matte, it does sit quite comfortably on the lips. The problem here is that as a product, it just doesn’t quite do enough to justify the price tag it carries. For $38.00, the coverage is barely-there, in some cases looking more like a tinted lip balm than actually coating like a lipstick should. The wear time is also decidedly insufficient, disappearing at the slightest hint of anything consumable. To us, this product is a disappointment because it could’ve been absolutely perfect with a better formula in the gorgeous packaging. But unfortunately, we feel inclined to warn you that this product just may not cut it if you’re looking for rich color and lasting wear time.

With packaging that evokes the aesthetic of the Givenchy fashion house, everything seems to be in place for the Le Rouge Lipstick to deliver on its promises. But alas, disappointment. Despite its much-cited packaging and some pleasing pigmentation, the Le Rouge Lipstick is ultimately unable to truly deliver in coverage and wear time. With a whole host of luxury products in the market that serve both style and function, this lipstick just can’t rise to the task and compete. With luxury products, there’s a very fine line to toe between paying for the brand name and the actual quality of the product, and it just so happens that for this one, it’s very apparent which side the scales favor.

SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
