Everyone needs a thrill.......(not a review)
Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystals are lippies that actually stopped me in my tracks in a NYC Sephora store. They were located on a bottom shelf but the glittery goodness and overall weirdness caught my eye.
They looked like MAC dazzleglasses on acid. Before you bum rush the Sephora website, I have to inform you that the sparkle power is low wattage. It looks like it is going to be a disco party on your lips, but it is a very sheer pigment gloss with a shimmer promise that is never fulfilled.
Having said that....these lip glosses were still very cool.
They contain some moisturizing ingredients such as Castor oil, something called Pulp Shine Complex, Pulp'up(according to the Sephora website this is a biomimetic tripeptide developed by Givenchy to stimulate synthesis collagen) and Vitalip. This last ingredient acts a scrub to remove dead skin cells. This could be foreshadowing for a lip disaster.
Glitter Parm #413 is a sheer purple with blue glitter. In the tube it looks like it glows in the dark.
Glitter Pink #515 is a sheer salmon with gold green glitter
Glitter Pomelo #416 is a fruit pink with purple shimmer
Glitter Orange #414 is a sheer orange with gold green glitter
These retail for $23.50 and are available at Sephora.com I was unable to see many of the shades in person.
Let us know what colors are worth checking out and how the formula stands up during the course of a day.
