Givenchy recently sent their “Noir Revelateur” Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick (whew! that’s a long name) to me, and I’m so glad they did, because it’s not something I would normally gravitate toward. I usually go straight to the bold, matte shades and completely skip anything sheer. I don’t have a lot of pigmentation in my lips, which is why I’m so big on lipsticks, and sheer finishes usually look a little lackluster on me. That’s why I was surprised to immediately fall in love with this unique lipstick. It adjusts to your skin tone, so it’s a truly universally flattering shade. Though it looks like a tube of pure black lipstick, it has a sheer finish that will look like anything from a lighter shade of berry to a vampy plum. On me, it looks like I just ate a bowl of black cherries, which is pretty much my dream color. I don’t have a lot of pigmentation in my lips, which is why I’m so big on lipsticks — but I love how the finish of this is more like a moisturizing, tinted balm than a lipstick. It’s nice to have that extra hydration in the winter, but I have a feeling this might become my go-to summer shade. I’m curious to see what it looks like on different skin tones, so if you’ve tried it (or will try it), please show me pictures!

    It’s a great shade. I’ve tried something similar before and it truly is universal. Great post!

    That lipstick looks gorgeous on you! I would be intimidated to try it out because of the way it looks in the tube, but it looks gorgeous! I also like that it adds a bit of hydration in the winter.

      I’m actually not sure what it was…I got it at a nail salon and I can’t remember which one I picked!
