Review: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick

By Beautifulbuns

Lipsticks that come in an angular tube casing always get extra points in my book, because this prevents them from doing the rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ down my wonky unevenly about-to-die Ikea table. This new one from Givenchy definitely takes the cake because it also comes in a gunmetal smexy casing – hello, just start drooling and commence the creepy caressing already.

The official write-up:

Enhance your lip look with Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick. This unique formula is infused with black rose oil, a rare and precious active ingredient that delivers extreme moisture and comfort to the lips for hours. It is combined with a silicone resin that forms a shiny, thin, and supple film on the lips’ surface for a second-skin feel. Lips are left with a “vinyl” radiance and a filling effect: lips instantly appear fuller, smoother, and denser. Each high-shine color blurs away all the lips’ tiniest imperfections and reflects the light, and its slick case features a metallic, satin ribbon design that’s inspired by the House’s fashion designs.

I say…

The Packaging: Dat sexy gunmetal casing – me loves! Use the black satin ribbon to gently tug the lipstick out of the exterior casing (there’s also a click-closure so that it doesn’t fall out easily).

The Scent: A subtle musky rose/floral scent.

The Texture/Application: Now this is said to contain black rose oil and that silicone resin thingy – I’m not scientist, but what I tell you is that it really does feel like a “second skin”. Note that it’s not thick, greasy nor uncomfortable – it just feels like a comforting layer of balm coating your lips and filling up the fine lines. I also love that it does indeed (as the official write-up says) plump up the lips.

The Verdict: I am really glad that the color payoff for this is a lot stronger than the Givenchy Le Rouge-À-Porter (which was more of a tinted lip balm/sheer lip colour). This one gives a decent colour, and fades into a rosy tint and even leaves your lips feeling hydrated and softer. Definitely a lipstick worth buying if you’re looking for one that plumps, gives good colour, and moisturises. Available at Givenchy cosmetic counters.
