Givenchy Gloss Interdit Lipgloss - Review

This lipgloss was one of those beauty insider perk sample. I would think 10 times before buying a $24.50 lipgloss…
Anyways, it’s a decent size sample and I have used it and personally I am impressed!!
The shade is in Rosy Taboo (04). A lovely mauve rose shade.


Gloss Interdit Ultra-Shiny Color Plumping Effect

A vibrant gloss with a high-performance formula, a sophisticated
silhouette, and a professional brush applicator. With its infinitely light
texture, Gloss Interdit provides spectacular shine and leaves lips smoothed and
plumped. The formula is enriched with high-performance skincare ingredients
developed by Givenchy Laboratories.


Swatch of Givenchy Gloss Interdit Lipgloss in ROSE TABOO

The tube is square in shape and not round like most of the glosses, very chic.
It has a brush applicator, which is cool. The product itself is a bit on thicker side and is completely creamy, with just a hint of Silverish shimmer, which is visible in the tube, but not much on lips. On my lips its an opaque creamy, slightly thick, but not so sticky or tacky gloss. The brush applicator gives more control in application as the consistency is on thicker side. This particular shade is not sheer at all. Its decently pigmented and gives medium to opaque coverage on lips. It plumps the lips a bit, with no tingling or burning sensation. Now, I am not sure if the plumping part is due to the formula or the shine in gloss makes it appear plump… May be I am just making it up….I don’t care…Never been a fan of swollen lips….


Givenchy Gloss Interdit Lipgloss in Rose Taboo (04)

The gloss lasted for around 3 hours and then I had to re-apply. I don’t remember eating or drinking. Usually MAC lip glasses last a bit longer than this. I guess as this gloss is less sticky, it affects the staying power.
The Scent of the gloss is something to notice. As per Sephora website, there is something else to know about the gloss.

The scent of Gloss Interdit is an elegant, sensual, and sophisticated new facet
of the "Espièglerie" concentrate found in Rouge Interdit and Rouge Interdit
Shine. The fragrance is composed of top notes of bergamot, litchi, and red
fruit; middle notes of rose, jasmine, and lily of the valley; and base notes of
sandalwood, vanilla, amber, and musk.

I never knew so much went into the Fragrance part of this lipgloss. In my layman's language, i would call it sweet, strong and like those flavoured, scented lipgloss that come in kits for small girls. Those cute, little Barbie, Disney make-up kits. Ok, may be I am exaggerating a bit. Its not that bad...its just sweet, not so annoying...and for a color like Rose Taboo, I can live with that scent.

This particular review is just based on one color that I have. I don’t know how good or pigmented other shades are. I would sure love to try other shades from this line, if I get some kind of discount in near future.
