Givenchy Le Vernis Intense Colour Nail Lacquer in Rose D’Exception for Fall/Winter 2013 (swatches & review)

When is comes to luxury cosmetic packaging, Givenchy easily ‘takes the cake’! With lipsticks and compacts dressed in leather armour and pyramid studding, each piece is a treasure to be desired. A new collection called ‘Soir D’Excpetion’, is now available for Autumn and is one of exquisite elegance and sophistication, and perhaps a bit fun as well. Among the new collection is nail and lip duo in the shade Rose D’Exception and the two pieces that I have purchased from the collection.  givenchy-rose-dexception-polish111

Givenchy Le Vernis Intense Colour Nail Lacquer in Rose D’Exception is contained in a clear glass bottle with a reflective silver cap. The cap removes to reveal a rounded black cap with ridges much better suited for application. A wide brush, similar to that of YSL and Dior, allows the formula to apply with ease. I find both the formula and packaging very similar to the YSL Le Vernis. Like the former it almost ‘applies itself’. The formula is pretty close to perfection and the finish is a high-shine, glossy one. The wear time is also excellent.


Rose D’Exception is described as a dusty-rose. The formula doesn’t streak or bleed and applies flawlessly. Two coats are recommended for he perfect finish. Rose D’Exception is a romantic and feminine shade for fall. I imagine it paired with a white Angora sweater and a glass of wine, beside a roaring fire. Too much? Perhaps…
