Givenchy Le Rouge Complete Line-Up Swatches

All lipstick lovers have probably been gazing longingly at the promo images of Givenchy Le Rouge for a while now. First of all, the leather packaging is super sexy (it’s real too!). Doesn’t that remind you of a spy movie? The finish is supposed to be matte, and let’s just say for the moment I am all about creamy matte lipsticks. Well guess what? I got to see the whole range in person today and of course I had to swatch like a manic for you!

The packaging of Le Rouge is quite large and hefty. Here you can see how it sits in my palm:

It has that satisfying click you would expect from a luxury lipstick, and the whole thing is amazing to behold!

Now onto the swatches! First up we have Les Naturels, including 101 Beige Mousseline, 102 Beige Plume, and 103 Brun Créateur.

205 Fuchsia Irrésistible is still part of Les Roses, but 301 Magnolia Organza and 302 Hibiscus Exclusif belong to Les Créations.

My quick observation is that each one of these is incredibly pigmented, creamy, and smooth (most of the swatches were done with one swipe). It has quite a bit of slip so it glides on easily, but I will have to test it out to find out if it will slide around or not. For the moment I am a bit worried the formula will work well for me, because in that case I’ll want to snatch up just about the whole range! Also, these have a much lighter scent than Givenchy Rouge Intérdit, which wins it bonus point in my book!

    Damn Sunny you’re fast! 😀
    I just saw you swatch these like 3 hours ago and already online.. you’re a fast one hehe

    • Sunny

      Haha thanks! These aren’t everywhere in the blogosphere yet, so I thought the swatches would be helpful!

      • BeautyLoves

        Seriously woman, I got home a few hours ago and you already put them online! 😉

        • Sunny

          LOL yeah it didn’t take too long so I thought why not 😉

  • Shoegal

    Ooo…I like Rosé Boudoir and Hisbiscus Exclusif! Pretty!

    • Sunny

      Yeah Givenchy managed to create really pretty colors for this line!

  • Rabbit

    I love 201 Rose Taffetas and 204 Rose Boudoir! Fuchsia is also beautiful, but it’s not a colour for me.

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah those are superb! I am warm-toned and I can pull both cool- and warm-toned fuchsia just fine, though I find cool-toned fuchsia really brightens my skin tone!

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    When I saw this post, I just noticed that I’ve never paid much attention to Givenchy products. I think I should definitely try out some of its products. The lipsticks look very nice. Love the leather packaging and the colors look very beautiful.

    • Sunny

      I’ll get to test one out soon. I’ll keep you posted about the formula!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    I really like all the pink toned lipsticks. So pretty !

    • Sunny

      Yup I’d gladly wear all of these (maybe except for the very brown one)!

  • beauties

    oooh nice variety of shades :)

    • Sunny

      Yes they’re all very nuanced!

  • ValleyDoll

    They are all so lovely ! Darn that price ! I do believe I’ll have to buy at least one !

    • Sunny

      Yay do keep me posted about how you like it! I’ll try to get the review up ASAP.

  • Tina @ My Highest Self

    LOVE the fuchsia color and I will have to say yes to leather packaging so luxe!

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah I squeaked SO many times swatching everything. That fuchsia definitely stands out!

  • Isabelle

    I’m loving all the stud details! Givenchy is really taking on a bolder look & I’m loving it.

    • Sunny

      Yup for sure! They always do great packaging, and now they’re at a whole new level!

  • Leila

    I have been waiting for the longest time for swatches of this line, so thank you! It’s all too pretty and so cool!
    I like Givenchy and have wanted to explore the line a little more but never found enough to interest me, so it’s nice to see something pique my interest this much.
    I wish they had used Liv Tyler for this advert though, she’s especially perfect for it (I know she’s still advertising for Givenchy, so not sure why she wasn’t used this time).

    • Sunny

      Hey Leila, I’m glad this helps! I’m going to test the formula out ASAP. With the creaminess I don’t think it will be drying, so as long as it stays put it’s probably good to go!

      From what I was told Mariacarla Boscono is going to be the sole muse of Givenchy makeup from now on, so I’m not sure where that leaves Liv Tyler!

  • BeautyLoves

    I like the packaging, it’s very rock-chic, love it! The texture felt amazing, curious to find out how these perform on my lips.

    • Sunny

      And yes I agree! I can’t wait to see how it works either!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Real leather?!! Goodness that is very luxe! The swatches are *beautiful* too–looks like an amazing new lipstick for lipstick lovers :)

    • Sunny

      Yup I was told the leather is the real deal! I wooed and aahed so many times swatching these because they are SO creamy and pigmented!

  • Chris El

    Ooh these lipsticks look so luxe! I adore Beige Plume. :)

    • Sunny

      Beige Plume seems very universally-flattering!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    Look at all the pretties! How will I ever choose? :)

    • Sunny

      I don’t think I can either LOL

  • Taylor

    Hello roses! They look incredibly pigmented, the leather is very cool, a bit over the top but still cool :-)

    • Sunny

      Haha Givenchy always goes all out with the packaging it seems :)

  • Icaria

    I am so envious and jealous at the moment! They are absolutely stunning and choosing will be hard. *dreams of the “click”*

    • Sunny

      Choosing will be hard for me too! I got one to try the formula out. If it works I foresee myself collecting a whole bunch LOL

  • Meryl @ Memoiselle

    What a pretty packaging!! Love the leather in that lipstick tube! The color looks rich and pigmented :)

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah pigmented is the word!

  • Peggy Timmermans Visagie

    There are some pretty nice colours in teh range, i thougt they are not that matte as i expected, but for me, that’s a plus anyway!

    • Sunny

      These have a good creamy sheen which I welcome as well!

  • Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    the pinks are SO PRETTY :)

    • Sunny

      I like just about EVERYTHING here. So yeah, we have a problem!
