Givenchy Mini Gloss Interdit – Travel Exclusive

By Get Lippie

I do have my boy trained well, I was delighted last week when he came home from a trip to Aberdeen with a little airport exclusive for me.  I’ve not tried too many lip products from Givenchy (albeit that one of my all-time favourite reds of all time is a Can-Can Red by them), so it was a nice way for me to try the range.

There are five shades in the kit, skewed towards pinks, lilac and rose:

I was delighted that the glosses are intensely pigmented, if a little on the thick and sticky side, with quite a fruity scent:

Lasting time is about average for a gloss, a couple of hours before fading, and they will get all over your coffee cups and everything.  You know how glosses are.

I’ve found them to be non-drying, and a pleasure to wear (I don’t mind a bit of stickiness, to be honest), but a couple of the shades do contain a bit of glittter, which, whilst it doesn’t feel gritty on the lips, it does tend to stay ON the lips long – long – after the gloss itself has disappeared …

You bought anything on your travels this year?

The Fine Print: Purchase.  And for once, not one made by me …
