I’m such a lemming for Givenchy‘s relevateur lipsticks and there was one included in their glittery shimmery Holiday Collection.
It’s the color Prune Folie 37 and it looks pretty scary in the bullet. The whole colection was black with sparkle, but while it’s rather easy to find black eyeshadow with sparkle, how often do you see such a lipstick?
Deliberately unfocused close up to show the multi colored sparkle. It looks like a galaxy.
Despite the scary color it does not apply so dark. It’s not meant to. The revelateur lipsticks are sheer lipsticks meant to react with your skin to give individual color. Dior has similar ones.
When applied to skin, both on wrist and lips at first I didn’t see anything. After half a minute of anxiety – have I just paid a small fortune for an “emperor’s new clothes” lipstick? – the color comes out. I think it looks like a lovely dark stain, like I’ve just eaten blackberries. I could absolutely not catch the glitter on camera, but it is there and very multi-colored sparkly. The glitter feels gritty on the lips but I stopped noticing soon. The whole lipstick is moisturizing as well. I’m glad I picked it up after all. 🙂
