Givenchy Grenat Initie (307) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a medium-dark, ruby red with subtle warm undertones and a smooth, luminous finish. OCC Role Play is more matte, shimmery. Giorgio Armani The Red is cooler-toned. Giorgio Armani Red Fuchsia is pinker. Guerlain Garconne is a bit darker. Dior Diva is more matte. Buxom Scoundrel is brighter. See comparison swatches.

I’m seriously making a pact between you and me that I am not to buy any more Le Rouges until Sephora does their % off during the holiday season, except any limited edition shades that I’m unable to resist. I only picked this one up to qualify for free shipping when I bought the limited edition summer shades from Givenchy’s own website (threshold was $75), but it is a stunner. A very classic take on red with the signature glossy sheen of the Le Rouge range. That sheen gives it such a smooth, plump, and juicy effect on the lips; color just looks smoother, more even, and lovely on lips. Some lipsticks can catch or emphasize imperfections on the lip, but this is a formula that masks imperfections. The consistency is lightly creamy but not too slippery, so it doesn’t move around or feather while worn. It’s nicely hydrating, wears a solid six hours (with a residual stain that lingers after), and is incredibly pigmented.
