The Balm Soothing Crystal Shine Lip Gloss joins the Givenchy GelÃ©e Interdit family with Liv Tyler the ‘lips’ of the campaign.Â The balm has a colourful sparkling transparency that glides onto your lips and adds instant shine and sparkle. For the first time the clear wax-free formula allows the pigments to shine through. The non-sticky texture comes with a delicate scent of lychee.
The highlight of this product is the additional moisturising and replumping properties through microspheres of hyaluronic acid (a substance naturally present in the skin) sliping into the fine lines of our lips and like teeny tiny sponges they fill the lines with the water from the skin’s surface and plump them up smoothing the lips out. The lips remain hydrated with camelina oil and ingredient used throughout the Interdit lines.
REVIEW: My sister and I (and five year old niece) trialled three colours; the Vibrant Fuschia (04), Sparkling Petal (11) and Blooming Pink (07). My niece is biased she loves anything sparkly on her lips, but my sister and I loved the smooth application, and the hydrating feeling of them on your lips. Definitely not sticky, the pigments aren’t very dark, although the Vibrant Fuschia is dark it only adds a touch of glossy colour and deepens slightly after a minute. The Sparkling Petal would be a perfect gloss over a darker lippie adding a touch of shine. The application is via a brush, my sister prefers a more ‘firm’ applicator but I found if you used the flat of the brush rather than the end you got a better application of the gloss.Â My sister in particular commented on the ‘flavour’ or scent!Â Definitely a winner for us, so hydrated and we all know how much I love to have hydrated lips!
