Givenchy Gloss Interdit

I'm not a big believer in universally flattering makeup colors (and I have the skin tone to prove it), but Givenchy Gloss Interdit in Rose Taboo is as close as they come. It's one of those "not too pink, not too purple, not too brown", which work for just about everyone in a different way.

I wear it as a natural, neutral color, a polished "my lips only better" look. It would look gorgeous against pale skin without going to vampy territory. I guess the key word here is elegance, which is something Givenchy makeup often has in spades (stay tuned for a review of Prismissime Eyes).

The texture is smooth and thick but not very sticky. It wears comortably and gives lips quite a bit of moisture, the plumping effect is there, but isn't very significant (unlike the Bella Donna gloss I reviewed last week). The gloss has a lot of shine but not obscenely so and the staying power is light to moderate. Re-applying would have been a lot more pleasant if Givenchy would get rid of that berry-litchi scent.

Givenchy Gloss Interdit Ultra-Shiny Color Plumping Effect ($24.50) is available from Sephora online and in store, which is where I bought it.
