Good to know that January starts with gloss! Also, after almost 20 years of writing about beauty, my brain has only just alerted me to find out what the actual translation of ‘interdit’ is. It means ‘not allowed’ or ‘forbidden’. Who knew? I’ve written about Rouge Interdit, Noir Interdit, L’Interdit fragrance and not questioned its meaning although right at the back of my mind it is ringing a bell regarding the fragrance. Maybe I forgot but it’s a great surprise all over again if that’s the case!
Anyway, here we are with the Vinyl edition of Givenchy Gloss – smooth, shiny and radiant. You can’t beat Givenchy packaging really, but the attention to detail is next level from the fabric strip on the lid embossed with metal beading, down to the wand tip that distributes colour via a letter G.
I think you can just see it on the tip of the black shade. Speaking of shades, I have three here from a selection of 12. The black is Noir Revelateur and the orange is Bold Orange. It has a small amount of shimmer. The red shade in the main picture is Rouge Thriller. Mainly, what I love about these is that while the colour is bold, it’s not a drench of saturation – it’s fairly easy to modify if you want a lighter covering.
Noir Revelateur uses a pH formula so will give your lips a pink tint after the grey wash. There’s another shade, Electric Pink Revelateur which does the same, as does Rose Revelateur.
In the swatch above, it’s Bold Orange, Noir Revelateur and Rouge Thriller. I don’t have a price for these yet, but what a great start to 2018!
