Givenchy Spring 2011: Candide Tangerine

Givenchy Candide Tangerine (50) Rouge Interdit Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, bright orange with a touch of darkness that keeps it from being a completely neon shade. The finish is satiny with a soft sheen but a creamy texture and nearly full color coverage. Illamasqua’s Temptress is a touch redder, while shades like MAC Neon Orange are closer but a little lighter.

my thoughts on the formula: The Rouge Interdit formula is creamy without being slippery nor clingy. It wears comfortably and holds on for four to six hours, with some of the lighter shades lasting only three to four (but those are in the minority). It has a noticeable floral perfumed scent but no taste. I do find that this formula is moisturizing, too, while still wearing really well.

The Glossover

This is a shade of orange that will work well on warmer skin tones, particularly deeper skin tones, because it offers a lot of brightness without turning neon.

  1. gorgeous!!! you look great in orange!!!

  2. Love this! A shame Givenchy is so hard to get here in Finland.

  3. Romina

    How would you compare to MAC Morange?

  4. Evelina

    That color is amazing, and the lipstick also.Love it!!!

  5. This is my favorite lipstick formula. Thanks for the review, now I know what color to try next!

  6. Marcy

    to me, orange lipstick looks terribly Halloweenish on any skin tone. yuck and PASS! unless it’s for a costume, photoshoot or the runway.

  7. Tish

    Gorgeous! I wish I had the guts to wear something this bold.

  8. AS

    Can you explain what “clingy” means in reference to lipstick?

    • It sinks into the lines in your lips, hugs them – think of when your face feels tight after a cleanser that strips skin of moisture or clingwrap.

  9. Holy bright! I love this colour on you :)

  10. Devon

    Loving this lipstick, but orange is so not my color. Going to have to go track down swatches of all the others!

  11. Hilary♥

    Very outstanding but not my kinda color.

  12. Liz Mc

    Too bright for me, looks like a traffic cone 😉

  13. //julie

    holy shit my eyes hurt! but beautiful color anyway.

  14. Want! This is gorgeous! I’m scared of wearing orange lipstick, though, even though I think it’s beautiful…

  15. Lucie

    Oh my god. Metaphorically jizzed my pants when I saw this swatch. Ordering it this minute! What a perfect tangerine orange! This is what I hoped Tom Ford’s Ginger Fawn would be.

  16. Beautiful color! and it looks AMAZING on you!!

  17. Jessica

    Very unique color and very opaque but I probably wouldn’t wear it.

  18. Steph

    I’m not sure I’m liking the colour, it is halloween-y to me. The formula looks nice though, very creamy & opaque.

  19. Nora

    It does have a bit of darkness to it, you’re totally right! This color is so, so gorgeous.

  20. This looks gorgeous on you! I have tons of orangey reds, but have yet to make the jump to a true orange. This might push me over the edge! I love that it isn’t as neon as many I’ve seen.

  21. Destinee

    This color is GORGEOUS!

  22. Pamela S.

    reminds me of lady danger but ofcourse lady danger is matte and i think i bit more orange. looks good on you : )

  23. Jenn

    Wowza, that’s bright! I need shades just to look at it! Very pretty and interesting colour for sure, just not sure when I would ever have an occasion to wear a colour like this!!! 😛

  24. Aude Mai

    Better than MAC’s Neon Orange you think ??!! =)

  25. Marie

    You totally rock that color! Love it!

  26. Jazz

    I love orange against my skin, but I think Ill try orange blush or eyeshadow first

  27. Vale

    I love Ginvenchy but this colour is… is… O_O I’m feeling ill… Definitely too noisy!

  28. ak

    I’ve never seen an orange lipstick look so good before, and yeah it is darker and less neon. I’m an NC45 and I hope that if I buy this, that it will look just as lovely. Christine, how does this compare to MAC Chili?

  29. kfm

    This looks so juicy and beautiful. I have Mac’s Neon Orange and although I don’t wear it often, I like it a lot- great summer colour! I’m not sure whether I can justify having both if they’re really close, but I’m really impressed with this one…

  30. All I can say is: wow!

  31. ak

    I tried this on and eventually I’ll have to buy it. It’s the best orange lipstick I have ever seen on me; I’m an NC45. Candide Tangerine didn’t make me look like a racist cartoon from yesteryear or like Halloween! LOL

    It’s really pricey; in the UK it’s almost £20, but my goodness it’s very pretty for an orange lipstick. I like actually that this color isn’t coral at all, and it doesn’t appear as a red on me either but as a true orange.

    It nearly has the finish of a Lustre lipstick from MAC or something as it’s slightly sheer but not too sheer. But again it’s not neon on me at all. To me this particular lipstick from Givenchy this time is worth the higher price as it’s so different in a very good way.

    My Mom was lucky, not that long ago she received a dark brown Givenchy lipstick as a gift from a work colleague. She would never spend that amount for it.

    But the summer’s gonna have me lookin great if I put this Candide Tangerine on my lips, that’s all I can say!

  32. ak

    Yeah by the way Christine, is this color permanent with Givenchy do you know?

    • It is limited according to Givenchy!

      • ak

        Noooooooooo! *screams* LOL I’ll just have to buy it then. But I’ve been buying so many lipsticks and even glosses lately that I feel guilty. There’s this gorgeous and wearable orange right here, and then I find myself looking at two or three of Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color ones also! *bite my lip* :)

  33. ak

    Yay I bought it! Maybe I should go back and buy one more….hmmm….

  34. I own this lipstick and I am so in love with it, Thank You for posting!

  35. Shi

    I’m pale with cool undertones but… I still want this. XDD

  36. Hey Christine! I’m viewing this review on your website and the images showing are the no hotlinking ones. Glitch?

  37. sonya b

    I love Givency Candide Tangerin, beautiful colour and very smooth, my is almost finished I really want to buy more, does anyone know where can I get the same, HELP

  38. virginie

    I always miss the limited edition stuff, and I, of course looove this product. Do you know if Givenchy, like MAc for instance, “repromote” their limited edition???? Please say yes. I want to get one, but it’s nowhere…;-((
