Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge
Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright coral pink.” It’s a bold, brightened pink-coral with a luminous shine and a creamy finish. MAC Elegant Accent is warmer, less pink. MAC Watch Me Simmer is very similar. MAC Hear to Heart is slightly pinker. MAC Force of Love is pinker. Guerlain Giulette is lighter, more shimmery. Chanel Phoenix is glossier. See comparison swatches.
Le Rouge is supposed to have a semi-matte finish, be long-wearing, and have rich color. It’s fully opaque in one stroke, and it has a lightweight, creamy consistency that’s comfortable to wear and hydrating while worn. Rose Dressing lasted five and a half hours on me. There’s a very faint scent that’s supposed to be mimosa and black currant, but I was hardly able to detect it in the tube and definitely not when applied.
One of its “features” is the leather wrapped around the tube, which while it looks nice, feels thin and prone to scratches and tears. Because of how thin it felt, and I would be afraid to toss it in a bag, because I could leave imprints and scratch it with my nails alone (I tested it).
