I know it’s not right to fall in love with a lipstick simply because of its packaging, but boy, a sexy case can make up for a lot as far as I’m concerned! I’m shallow, I know. On Monday of this week, the latest addition to the Rouge Interdit lipstick collection from Givenchy was released, the Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl, and I love, love, love the packaging.
|L-R Rouge Rebelle, Beige Indecent & Rose Transgressif|
Essentially a sheerer version of their classic lipsticks, the Rouge Interdit Vinyl is a brightly pigmented and very glossy balm-formulation lipstick.
|Yeah, I used Rouge Rebelle before I took the photos. Sorry.|
I have three shades, Rouge Rebelle, Beige Indecent, and Rose Transgressif. Rouge Rebelle is a sheer clear red. Beige Indecent is a browned-caramel-beige and Rose Transgressif is actually a brighter cool pink, not quite the candy-baby pink you see here.
Personally, my favourite is the Rouge Rebelle (surprise! Some of you will have seen it on my instagram #LipsNspritz feed already), but I find Beige Indecent to be surprisingly wearable, because of the good pigmentation. Rose Transgressif is tricky for me to wear because there is a lot of white in the formulation, but it’s a good summery pink, if you can wear candy-pinks.
There’s also a BLACK one, which looks terrifying in the tube, but I discovered at the launch last month that it is surprisingly wearable on the skin. Mine hasn’t arrived yet, but I’ll be sure to show you it when it does … For readers of a certain vintage, if you remember Honey Tea by Shiseido, then this will be the replacement you’ve been waiting for, so pick one up fast! It’s called Noir Revelateur, and is No.16 in the range.
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl are now available nationwide and cost £25 each.
