Givenchy Le Rouge Sheer Velvet Lipstick Swatches
I have six of the shades to you show you – 10 Beige Nude, 23 Rose Irresistible, 27 Rouge Infuse, 32 Rouge Brique, 36 L’inderdit & 37 Rouge Graine:
My favourites are No 10 Beige Nude which is the perfect Neutral, and No 36 L’inderdit which has just got to be the easiest red to wear ever.
There is something about this formula that makes lipstick wearing so effortless and actually rather addictive.
The formula is so comfortable and balmy. No 10 seems to be a nude that flatters most skin tones and I can even apply it without a mirror. I tend to want to top it up not because the colour has faded, but more because I love how it feels on my lips.
Personally, I am a lipstick fan, but I think this is the perfect lip formula if you don’t traditionally love lipstick.
The 36 L’interdit shade, which is Givenchy’s classic red, has never been easier to wear. If you want a pop of colour to wake up your face that needs no maintenance, this has to be the one.
I absolutely love the whole Givenchy Le Rouge Sheer Velvet Lipstick collection and I know I am not alone because all the shades just keep selling out!
I adore the packaging and have been carrying around No 10 in my handbag for weeks. It still looks as beautiful as when I first got it.
