Givenchy Le Rouge Deep Velvet Lipstick – 37 Rouge Graine

This is only the second lip product I’ve ever tried from Givenchy and I must say yet again, I like it. If you are curious, the other formula I tried was the Givenchy Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Balm that I reviewed back in 2020. I purchased this from Givenchy’s Holiday 2021 release so my case is a limited edition version in black velvet casing with a gold tube. However, the lipstick shade is part of their permanent lineup and typically comes in red velvet casing with a silver tube.

Givenchy Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Balm Review

Givenchy has turned its iconic lip balm into a liquid gloss formula.  I think that if you read the description from Sephora and that is what has piqued your interest, you will likely be disappointed and feel that this lip gloss claims to be a balm.  However, according to the description on Saks, it is actually called a liquid gloss formula.  I purchased the shade 14 Nude Soul**.

This balm starts off as a lip gloss, but as it wears away it feels more like a balm.  On my lips, the color is a light pink.  It has a slight scent that doesn’t linger for very long.  Surprisingly, it does hang around through drinking and eating for 2 to 3 hours and I still feel like there is a balm on my lips even a little while after that.   I can also feel that it did help my chapped lips after just one day of wearing it.  I also feel like my lips feel softer and smoother after I use it.  It does have a tingle at the start of wear thanks to pink pepper that is supposed to plump the lips.  If you’ve ever used a gloss or lipstick with peppermint oil in it, then this will feel similar to you.  I didn’t notice any plumping effect from the tingle and it goes away fairly quickly.  I really like this and do feel it performs a lip balm function but with a nice sheen on the lips and gives a hint of color.
