Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 02 Beige Champagne ($30) delivers smooth, light-reflective color that hugs lips to create a plump and glossy pout. It's a nice lipstick for sure, but all in all I'm not convinced that it's worth the $30 price tag.

Like all Givenchy products, Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick comes in very luxe packaging. It features a square black outer tube, an embossed silver casing, and a Givenchy logo pull tab used to remove the lipstick from the outer tube. It's great if you love fancy packaging, but I prefer my lipstick to look a little more basic and inconspicuous. I just feel weird/self-conscious/dorky taking out fancy-looking lipstick in public, you know?

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 02 Beige Champagne has a very smooth, moisturizing formula with some shine. While it feels great on lips, this lipstick isn't as pigmented as I expected. I have to apply about 3 layers to get the coverage that I want. For the price, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick should provide better color payoff.

On the plus side, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 02 Beige Champagne is a truly lovely shade. It's a subtle warm rose beige that brightens your face for a natural and pretty look. I think this color is versatile and would flatter many different people. The smooth formula also does a good job of filling in lip lines.

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 02 Beige Champagne lasts for about 4 hours on me. However, because it lacks intense pigmentation, this lipstick doesn't stain your lips with very much color.

Bottom Line: While it has some good points, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 02 Beige Champagne doesn't knock it out of the park for me. If you're looking for a sheer, moisturizing lipstick, spend $12 on a Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick instead.
