Givenchy Gloss Interdit Ultra-Shiny Color Plumping Effect for Full, Glossy Lips

The gloss does lightly plump up lips, but there is no noticeable burn/tingle that is often associated with lip plumping products.  (Trust me, I am no fan of that lip plumping tingle.)  It’s a medium-thick, non-sticky gloss that can be semi-sheer to more opaque, depending on the shade chosen.  Glamorous Fuchsia and Lilac Confession both had good pigmentation, while Velvet Purple was most certainly noticeable, it still appeared as more of a sheer gloss.  Capricious Pink had the least color pay off of the four, but that is the nature of lighter lip glosses.

I find that these wear for four or five hours with minimal fading, and they don’t leave behind any residue when they do fade away after eating/drinking.  They’re also moisturizing and feel really lovely on your lips–lightweight and not thick or tacky.  They’re a bit pricey relative to other brands’ lipglosses, but the price is right in line with what I’d expect from Givenchy.

Recommendation:  Lipgloss lovers will likely enjoy this new formula, and if you want some fuller lips… even better.  The way the gloss looks helps to further amp up your natural lip shape, too.  A wee bit pricey for some, but if it’s within your budget or you feel like splurging… not a bad choice!
