Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) Le Rouge Sensuously Matte Lipstick
Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) Le Rouge Sensuously Matte Lipstick

Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) Le Rouge Sensuously Matte Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “berry rose.” It’s a cool-toned, slightly muted, berry with hints of rosy pink. It has a satin-matte finish. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is cooler-toned, brighter. Bobbi Brown Berry (LE, $25.00) is brighter. Chanel Esprit (88) (LE, $34.00) is a bit redder. Guerlain Rose Bengale (P, $35.00) is more frosted.See comparison swatches.

It had rich, opaque color coverage and was nearly opaque in a single pass. The consistency is creamy, lightweight, and glides right on without pulling or tugging at the lips. The way it sits on the lips is particularly flattering; it looks very smooth and even, which ultimately makes my lips look about 15% nicer than they really are. It wore well for five and a half hours, and it was lightly hydrating during that time. The formula is rose-scented, and it seemed a bit stronger in this shade than some of the other shades (or the regular Le Rouge range). I really love the feel of the lipstick, though, and even as someone who doesn’t like floral-scented lip products, it’s a shade I’ve reached for twice on date night (which is a big deal!).

    so pretty and looks great on you!

    Is this part of the christmas collection?

    • I think it is! I don’t get info from Givenchy, so honestly it’s just my obsessive tendency to seek out new Le Rouges that helped me find this!

  2. Joanna

    Don’t think that’s a lip color I would be able to pull off but the packaging will definitely have me experimenting with it.
