Givenchy Le Rouge N315 Framboise Velours | 2018 Couture Edition

Givenchy Le Rouge 2018 Couture Edition

I totally missed out on the gorgeous Chinese New Year edition (ooh, I just saw it's still available on Neiman Marcus!) and was not going to let that happen again when I saw the 2018 Couture Edition. I believe the 2017 edition was also Framboise Velours. I wish Givenchy went with a different color for the spring. Nonetheless, Framboise Velours is a very pretty berry shade that works well on my complexion. And more importantly, would you look at the case.

Honestly, I wouldn't have bought this if it wasn't for the beautiful packaging because nowadays I don't wear traditional lipsticks as often.

The case itself is a bit bigger than what I'd like to carry around. Still, every detail is meticulous and aesthetically satisfying.

Framboise Velours is indeed a velvety raspberry color with complexity. I see a hint of grey that makes this particular berry so much more interesting and wearable as well.

The lipstick is rather fantastic as many fellow bloggers have praised. The saturated color goes on smoothly. It stays on for many hours and my lips feel comfortable wearing it. For a full coverage lipstick, I think it is very low maintenance. The color does fade after hours but does slowly and evenly leaving a nice stain behind. I've worn this lipstick on a very busy day with no issue and needed only one light touch-up during the day.


I am happy to discover that Givenchy Le Rouge 2018 Couture Edition is not just about the pretty case. This certainly has tickled the makeup collector side in me and gotten me interested in the other Givenchy offerings including the new Le Rouge Liquide range (avail on Sephora France for now).

I haven't had a chance to snap a good overall look photo with Givenchy Le Rouge Framboise Velours but will feature this lovely berry lipstick in my next "Face Tray" post soon.


Wish you a great Easter weekend!

    1. If you like full coverage lipsticks, you'd definitely enjoy this range. I hear other lip makeups are excellent as well. :)

  2. I haven't tried any Givenchy lipstick yet. I believe I tried one of their eye shadow palettes way back when... but it was a forgettable experience. Perhaps things have changed now? The casing is gorgeous though <3

    1. Their pressed powder formulations are on the drier side, I remember. I was never into the famous Prism series even back then when everyone raved it. This lipstick, however, is excellent that I'm impressed. :)

  3. What a gorgeous color! I want it for the case, but for me this sort of color doesn't get worn too much. I only let myself get the CNY one since it was a shade I'd wear often. Maybe in the future collecting LE Givenchy lipsticks will blossom into a full time hobby! I'm still annoyed at self for missing the 2017 holiday one.

    1. I was surprised to see NM still carries the CNY one - do you think I should get this one..? (sighs). I like that their LE ones are so beautiful yet only cost a few bucks more. Of course, we have to act quickly... ;)

  4. That case is really stunning! It would be awesome if they made it refillable. The formulation and wear sounds really nice as well. I bet this looks lovely on you Lena :D

    1. I doubt that I'd use it up any time soon but I know that I'd keep the tube for the sake of it. And, now you mention it, the outer case would fit other Le Rouge lipsticks. ;D
