Nude Cachemire (101)

Givenchy Nude Cachemire (101) Le Rouge Liquide ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was very emollient with a high amount of slip, which made it harder to apply evenly and keep it inside the lip lines due to the rounded applicator. It had nearly opaque color coverage that sank into my lip lines within an hour of wear, though the color stayed on for about four hours. It took three hours or so for most of the sheen to go away. The formula was lightly moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.10 oz. - $370.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "velvet matte" finish that "never feels drying" and is "super-vibrant." It is also supposed to "hydrate and smooth like a nourishing lip balm." The applicator is a fluffy foam tip with a light slant and rounded shape where the lip color exudes out when twisted--the actual lip color has the texture of a thick cream than a traditional liquid lipstick. I found the applicator to be tricky to use and certainly worse than a standard bullet or applying using a doe-foot applicator. It was hard to maneuver along the edges of my lips, especially around the cupid's bow. Of the shades I tried, they were semi-opaque to opaque, comfortable to wear (lightly hydrating), and lasted between four and six hours but found that they seemed to fade more unevenly than the average lip product.

Rouge Mohair (308)

Givenchy Rouge Mohair (308) Le Rouge Liquide ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a vibrant, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and this one I struggled with as the color looked uneven and almost splotchy in places as if some of the product stained my lips but not everywhere. The texture was thinner and more oily, though it seemed to set a bit faster than other shades. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

African Light Gold

Givenchy African Light Gold Bouncy Highlighter Cooling Jelly Glow ($41.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a soft, light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It’s a new, limited edition cream-based highlighter that has a slightly cool-to-the-touch sensation when initially applied, but it has an overly-emollient texture that seems to dry down incredibly quickly to the point where all it did was catch on texture and separate the more I tried to blend it out. I tried using fingertips, brushes, and sponges to apply and to blend out the product, and I did not feel like anything worked well.

The product seemed to sit on top of my skin, which isn’t usually an issue with cream-based formulas, as they’re often designed to look more natural and skin-like. It worked terribly over any base products as it lifted them up and caused them to turn patchy wherever it touched the base. It did not look dewy or shiny or luminous, even in person; it was barely visible in photos, and it wasn’t much better in person (I felt like it was more visible because it texturized my cheeks but not that visible from giving it dewy sheen). It lasted for six hours on me.

Rouge Stiletto

Givenchy Rouge Stiletto Le Rouge Mat ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was good but shy of full coverage (as described). The lipstick felt velvety and smooth as it glided across my lips with ease, but it was a thinner formula and seemed a bit more prone to emphasizing my lip lines overall, though not as badly as other shades in the formula had done. It wore well for five hours, left barely any stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

Givenchy released a new, matte finish of their Le Rouge lipstick range. It's supposed to have "an ultra-velvety intensely matte" finish where "one stroke is all it takes to saturate lips in plush, opulence color that lasts and lasts." While I've been a fan of the original Le Rouge formula since it launched, I found the Le Rouge Mats to be rather disappointing. The pigmentation varied but was rarely opaque--certainly not one-stroke "maximum coverage"--and the lipstick itself seemed to gravitate toward my lip lines and any imperfections on my lips. I always make sure to exfoliate my lips prior to doing a round of lip swatches about an hour ahead of time (to give them time to soak up some lip balm and calm down, in case they reddened at all!), and this formula tended to emphasize.

The texture was velvety and had a lot of slip without feeling wet--it felt packed with silicones like a face primer--so they were comfortable to apply, thin without being clingy, but they lasted between four and five hours on me with minimal staining with the deeper shades. The formula was lightly hydrating on me overall. They did have a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Nude Androgyne

Givenchy Nude Androgyne Le Rouge Mat ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly. The lipstick had a thin, velvety texture (felt more like a silicone face primer than a typical lipstick!), which helped it glide nicely across the lips, but there was slight color that pulled into my deeper lip lines. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Brun Baroque

Givenchy Brun Baroque Le Rouge Mat ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply as evenly as expected, and the product seemed to clump in places where my lips weren’t perfectly smooth (despite exfoliating prior to applying the lipstick). The consistency felt smooth, velvety, and thin without being clingy, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing, but it did pull into my lip lines over time.
