Heya loves! Hope you guys are doing great! I am so caught up with the jet lag after my US trip. Also, the weather in US is more fickle than a girl on her period. The temperature ranges from 10-26degrees in a span of 24 hours. Not complaining though, my skin loves the chill and has been doing great by not breaking out on me despite all the late nights. To keep my lips feeling moisturised and looking fabulous in the day, I have been wearing Givenchy's new line of Rouge Interdit Vinyl lipstick which I had the opportunity to preview a few weeks back.
The launch was held at Bang Bang @ Pan Pacific Singapore. Let me add a super irrelevant line but the DJ that night was ON POINT man. Kudos to his sick beats, I would totally listen to his playlist if it's available.
When I first swatched these lipsticks, I thought it would be a sheer balm judging from the texture on my wrist but boy am I wrong! These lipsticks are so pigmented & gorgeous it gives such a plump and beautiful shine on the lips. If you are into juicy apple bitten lips, this is definitely your go-to lippie!
The new Rouge Interdit Vinyl lipstick is infused with a special mysterious & rare ingredient which is black rose oil. I literally have never heard of black rose oil because black roses itself are so rare to come by! This special ingredient provides hours of comfort & moisture to the lips, making it extremely wearable for a daily basis.
Forget the gloss, this lipstick when applied, has a vinyl-like shine which creates instant fuller and thicker lips. It has a special soft-focus agent that blurs out even the tiniest imperfection on the lips. Talk about photoshop in a lipstick ;)
The Rouge Interdit Vinyl has an extensive shade range and our local Sephora carries 12 of these illicit colours. However, the one shade that has us all in suspense was the Noir Revalateur, a mysterious black shade that is universal to all. Playing with pigment alchemy, it reacts to the pH of the lips and transform into a different shade for every women. It may appear mauve on you and plum on your friend, how interesting right? You can also use this special shade as a top coat on top of other shades to create a darker and more intense lip colour. Transforming a lipstick from day to night suddenly becomes so easy!
Of course, being a lipstick junkie, I had to have the Noir Revalateur. Since I wasn't in Singapore when it hit the stores, I literally searched high and low across so many Sephora stores in the US just to get my hands on this gem. I finally found ONE piece in a super ULU Sephora in LA and literally thank all heavens for it. This shade was SOLD OUT everywhere, I almost lost hope in getting it. (I sound so dramatic....but the struggle was real!)
Anyway, the night was really happening. There were tons of VIPs including Dominique Lehongre, the international training director of Givenchy alongside Jean Phillipe. The famous celebrity artist Larry Yeo graced the event as well and I think I was so star-struck. And I mean make-up god kind of star-struck *hyperventilates* Of course I did not dare to approach him, maybe one day when I muster enough courage. In the meantime, I will be a secret fangirl for his works and witty remarks. :P
The Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl is a true beauty on its own. These lippies retail for SGD$48 a pop and I am meaning to add more shades to my collection too! Do let me know your thoughts about this lipstick & which shades you got!
Have a lovely weekend!
