GIVENCHY Gloss Interdit Vinyl in 01 Rose Révélateur and 16 Noir Révélateur - Review and Swatches

The all new Gloss Interdit is extremely shiny, deliciously fragrant and long wearing! Probably the only time I used the word "long wearing" for a lip gloss because I was shocked that I had absolutely no need to touch up for 5 hours! The two shades I am sharing today can be used as a topper or on its own. I like to use it as a topper on lipstick and that is how I get the most longevity out of these. They intensify the lip color and makes it luminous and shiny, especially with the shade 16 - Noir Revelateur, the results are stunning!! Both shades are described as made-to-measure color booster that enhances lip color by reacting with skin's pH so everyone gets a different result.
Review and swatches of these beautiful Gloss Interdit by Givenchy Beauty is in today's blog!


ROSE REVELATEUR

This clear gloss enhances the natural lip color and adds a rosy tint to my lips. I love how it adds a little bit of color to lips, whle it looks completely clear/colorless in the tube. The G applicator makes it so easy to spread this gel-like texture all over lips and especially on my fuller lips, I love a bigger foam tip to apply. I usually go with just a single coat of 01 Rose Révélateur and it works nicely on bare lips or  lipstick. Whenever I use it on top of a lipstick, I make sure I wipe clean the applicator, to avoid adding any color in the gloss tube.



NOIR REVELATEUR
This shade was a little bit of a surprise because I didn't know how I could make it work, as it is black with multicolor shimmer in it and I am not a fan of either on my lips. My views changed completely when I applied this on my lips! It is a lip color enhancer, so the black is quite sheer and it makes my bare lips look as if I am wearing the perfect nude lipstick for my skintone!
The shimmers are not noticeable but only adds to luminosity and shine. I can't even tell there is shimmer on my lips on a lipstick or bare lips. 16 Noir Révélateur makes any lip color more intense and shimmer adds to the depth of shine on lips.

SWATCHES






As you can see from all the swatches above that they are extremely shiny and they look lovely on their own and as a topper. The texture of these glosses is very different from the other glosses, I have tried. It has a gel like feel and that makes the application very controlled and precise. The new foam tip applicator does an amazing job in applying it neatly on lips and I never had any issues with the formula. Its non sticky, it smells good and the extreme shine looks beautiful on lips. Its the one thing that brightens up every dull and grey winter day!
The Gloss Interdict in shade 01 and 16 enhances the natural tone of lips and that makes them perfect for travel as well, because I could be wearing the same lipstick during the day with 01 Rose Révélateur on top and again at night with 16 Noir Révélateur on top. Also, I think lip glosses are more forgiving when it comes to using makeup while travelling because they can be applied without a mirror and pursing the lips makes the application even. I also noticed that 16 Noir Révélateur not only intensified the lipstick shade on my lips, but also acted like a stain, so even after wiping it off my lips, I had a pinkish/plummy stain that I absolutely loved.
Givenchy Gloss Interdit is available at Sephora for C$37 and comes in a beautiful range of colors to choose from.
