There’s nothing not to like about the Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto (except maybe the price) which is described as a lip beautifier. That’s about right because my lips look much better with than without. The point about Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto is to be a 3 in 1 product providing a plumping concentrate, a moisturising balm and colour booster.#
I definitely felt the ‘plumping’, provided, apparently, by ‘pepperslim’ which is a pepper extract to stimulate blood flow. It also has a menthol deritive which accounts for the tingling sensation. It’s not a lip burn like old style plumpers (remember Lip Venom?!) but you do certainly feel something. Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto also contains hyaluronic acid and shea, which seems to be formulated very nicely because it stays around a while and gives lips a juicy finish.
The colour boost element comes from the pH reactor so you can expect a rosy glaze. I thought mine looked a bit more peachy than rosy, and certainly didn’t come out that kind of acid pink that some pH reactors can bring. All in all, as a lip booster, all boxes are ticked – my lips look natural but more refined with a light sheen, a slightly smoother appearance and perked up a bit colour wise.
Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto is £26 and launches in June. If you like a natural lip look, I’d really recommend it – maybe for weekend makeup? Plus, it’s one of the prettiest balms I’ve ever seen with a pink leather wrap.
