Day 33: The Cleveland Gang Discovers Givenchy!
by MUA's Cavewoman
With Spring finally in the air in Northeast Ohio, Ms. Blogdorf and I headed up to Cleveland on a recent lovely sunny Saturday to hang out with our friends, have lunch, seek out the newest scents to try at the fragrance counters, and check out the newly-installed Givenchy Cosmetics display at our little Sephora store. With the 40 In 40 Lip Service project well on its way, we had lippies on our minds and we wanted lippies on our lips! Ceil was looking at the plums and deep reds, Leah loved the peaches and light shimmery pales, and Annie and I quickly fell in love with the huge selection of our favorites, the pinks. There were beautiful choices for all of us, and we caved. There's nothing like a new lipstick to usher in the new season, and we were all ready to celebrate Spring with the new Givenchy lippies!
The texture of the Rouge Interdit is a cream-gel type formula, with saturated color and an ultra-comfortable feeling on the lips. Some of the shades have a bit of shimmer, but no big glitter particles here. Even the more pale shades have good coverage. The shades range from pales and nudes in warms and cools, to outrageous hot pinks, to stunning va-va-voom reds. The formula feels packed with moisture and has a pretty, satin finish. We all agreed that we want more of them and will be back soon to play and test and ooh and ahh at the new Givenchy area.
Rouge Interdit Shine is a lipstick-style gloss in a smoky, see-through lucite case. The shades available were beautiful, about a dozen or so, all with lustrous shimmer. Of course I couldn't resist Candy Shine, a medium pink with a hint of coral. This gloss is similar in style to the new Clarins Joli Rouge Brillant, and I'm so glad to see more lipstick-style glosses at the counters.
Have you bought a new lippie for Spring? Have you tried the new Givenchy Rouge Interdit yet? We can't wait to hear!
