Givenchy Gelée D’interdit: Blazing Coral and Forbidden Berry*

Hello everyone! Every now and then I think it’s perfectly acceptable to splurge on a luxury lipgloss. A beautiful option in terms of packaging and formula are the Givenchy Gelée D’interdit Smoothing Gloss Balms. The sleek rectangular tube is topped with a beautiful silver lid engraved with the iconic Givenchy logo.The applicator is a small brush as opposed to the typical doe-foot variety. This allows for more precision along with lipline, however on the actual lips it takes a little bit of work to ensure even coverage. The formula itself is neither too thick or super thin, but rather a comfortable balance. It’s not sticky however you do feel that you are wearing a gloss (if that makes sense.) In terms of pigmentation, these offer a sheer layer of colour. If you’re looking for bold colour then this may not be for you. Pictured below are #26 Forbidden Berry (left) and #24 Blazing Coral (right). As you can see, Forbidden Berry is a medium-fuschia-berry gloss with no shimmer whereas Blazing Coral is a sheer peach-leaning pink that contains microshimmer that appears in swatches but not so much on the lips.
I apologize for the poor quality of these 2 photos on the lips…but hopefully it gives you a better idea of the colour in comparison with my skintone. Forbidden Berry is on top and Blazing Coral is on the bottom. Sheer but noticeable colour from both! Apparently these are also supposed to smooth and plump your lips, however I didn’t notice any substantial differences on myself.
Givenchy Gelée D’Interdit Smoothing Gloss Balms ($35.00 CDN) are available at Sephora and online at
