Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick: Review and Swatches
Promising shine, color, and hydration, the Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipsticks ($38 CAD) are a line of light-coverage lip colors infused with precious black rose oil. Housed in the most exquisite packaging, these lipsticks are definitely going to be on your wish list... if they aren't already. To see some swatches and read my reviews of a few shades, click......

Packaging:
Givenchy always has killer packaging but the Rouge Interdit Vinyl lipstick takes it to a whole new level. Housed in a stunning translucent black case adorned with metallic ribbon details etched along its sides, the lipstick has a little black ribbon loops as a handle.

Givenchy spares no details so even the inside of the lipstick is etched with a very intricate ribbon design. The actual lipstick has a flattened tip, which I usually don't prefer but because these lipsticks are rather sheer, a precise application is not as important.

Formulation:
Infused with black rose oil, the Rouge Interdit Vinyl has a super slick and hydrating formulation that's not too sticky or heavy. The lipsticks have a soft fragrance and their coverage is on the lighter side, although there is a bit of variation amongst the five shades I've swatched here. The finish has a beautiful sheen and the formulation make the lips look very nourished and plumped. These actually remind me quite a bit of the Dior Addict Lipsticks because of their sheer and lightweight formulation and if you are looking an easy-to-wear, on-the-go lipstick, the Rouge Interdit Vinyl is a great pick!

11 Rouge Rebelle
: This is a bright warm red with a decently pigmented but slightly patchy formulation. Out of all five shades, this is the only one that I felt could have benefitted from a slightly adjusted formulation. I don't mind the sheerness but it is the uneven coverage that is a bit of a letdown.
07 Fuchsia Illicite: This is sheer bright pink that's also fairly pigmented compared to the others. Unlike Rouge Rebelle, Fuchsia Illicite provides a more even and smooth coverage.
01 Nude Ravageur: A soft creamy nude, this shade didn't provide a whole lot of color but it did give the lips a milky nude finish.
09 Corail Redoutable: This is a very flattering soft coral with just a hint of shimmers. Although sheer, the coverage is very even and flawless.
16 Noir Révélateur: Hands down the most intriguing shade out of the five, Noir Révélateur appears dark purple in the tube but when swatched on the lips, the color actually adjusts to a flattering pinkish plum due to the lip's pH level. Unlike Givenchy's Le Rouge Perfecto Balm, Noir Révélateur still retains a bit of vampy darkness that will look even better over a dark base color.
