Ciate Forbidden is a slightly cool-toned, very dark berry with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Ciate Forbidden Glitter Flip ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a glittering finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer that applied decently but could have been more even, less patchy, and not pull into lip lines. The texture was very fluid, and it was the hardest to apply out of all shades, as it constantly shifted beyond the edges and dried down so fast that it dried down unevenly as I tried to fix the edges.
After the dry down, I pressed my l ips together and got a moderate amount of glitter to come forth, so there was a definite transformation. It lasted for five and a half hours but had a tendency to flake away as it wore down and was drying.
