Pourpre Edgy (326)

Givenchy Pourpre Edgy (326) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with cool, pink undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without tugging on the lips, but the color could have been a smidgen more even overall. The translucency to the coverage seemed to make any imperfections in the finish/application more noticeable, unfortunately. The lipstick felt smooth and velvety going on with moderate slip, and for all that slip, it did not accentuate my lip lines and seemed to smooth them out a bit (not as much as other shades in the Le Rouge lineup, though). It wore well for five hours and was moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.12 oz. - $300.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense color" with a "semimatte finish." Most shades are opaque with a few falling short of full coverage that apply evenly and last between four and six hours. The fomrula is lightly creamy to moderately creamy with some slip that is comfortable to wear and typically moisturizing over time. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Givenchy Framboise Couture (323) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer and applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without dragging or tugging during application. It had a velvety texture that wasn’t too thick, too thin, or too slippery. The color adhered well to the lips and wore nicely for almost six hours.

Holiday 2017

Givenchy Holiday 2017 Le Rouge Mini Duo ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains two, miniature-sized Le Rouge lipsticks in shades that can be purchased individually from the permanent line-up. It was available earlier this week, but the recent sale seems to have decimated stock on the lip sets this holiday season… I’m not sure if this particular set is available in stores or not, but both shades can be purchased on their own. As far as mini lipsticks go, these felt particularly cheap and lightweight with a very short bullet, and I felt like they had more slip and less pigmented compared to their full-sized versions.

Value

Le Rouge retails for $36.00 and contains 0.12 oz. or costs $300.00/oz. The set retails for $25.00 and contains 0.08 oz. It contains $24.00 worth of product.

Rouge Insomnie (12)

Givenchy Rouge Insomnie (12) Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium red with cool, pink undertones and a natural sheen. It had good color coverage, though it was not full coverage. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and felt comfortable to wear and was nicely moisturizing over time. The color wore well for six hours but feathered slightly along my upper lip line.

The formula is supposed to have “vibrant, satin color” with “long-lasting wear” and “absolute comfort.” The best part about the formula is that it is very hydrating, but the downside is shorter wear time (three to five hours) and a more balm-like texture that slides around and can be more high-maintenance with deeper shades. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade (based on the six I tried) from semi-opaque to opaque coverage. There was a sweet, floral scent and subtle taste (sometimes I noticed it, other times I did not).

Givenchy Street Rose (04) Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and never tugged on the lips. The texture was creamy with moderate slip, which made it incredibly comfortable to wear and hydrating over time. The color could have sat more flatteringly on the lips, as it had a tendency to gravitate toward my lip lines over the three hours it wore for.

Coral Gypsophila

Givenchy Coral Gypsophila Le Rouge ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. It was richly pigmented with nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across the lips.

The Le Rouge formula is supposed to have “intense color” and a “semi-matte finish” in “one stroke.” I’ve been a fan of the Le Rouge formula for its high coverage, natural finish, and comfortable wear, and this summer’s limited edition shade was no exception. The lipstick was creamy, smooth, and lightweight with enough slip to glide on nicely but not so much that it slid around while worn. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.
