Givenchy Golden Red (888) Le Rouge ($42.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, warmer red base with flecks of gold sparkle throughout. The finish was more satin-to-matte than particularly glossy, but it had noticeable sparkle and shimmer but not enough to make it truly metallic.
The texture was moderately dense with enough glide to apply comfortably without tugging; it seemed less velvety and creamy compared to other Le Rouges, though. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which deposited even color that didn't emphasize my lip lines or natural texture. The color stayed on well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
