Givenchy Coral Gypsophila Le RougeGivenchy 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.
