And the Award for Longest Name in a Lip Gloss This Fall Goes to…Givenchy Acoustic Colors Gelee D’Interdie Smoothing Gloss Balm Crystal Shine in Acoustic Wild Rose!

Published in: Givenchy, Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews

Wild Rose.



That’s what they call me — the people who know me best — but everyone else just calls me by my given name, Givenchy Gelee D’Interdit Smoothing Gloss Balm Crystal Shine in Acoustic Wild Rose #18.

I’m new here. I actually don’t even start work till the fall. They got me sitting on shelves at this place called Sephora. It’s a contract position — you know, a limited time. I told them I wouldn’t work for a nickel less than $27.50. I said, “That’s my price.” And they agreed.

The job description called for someone who “has a thing for biker bars, bouquets, and playing breakup songs on her guitar at corner coffee shops on open mic night.”

Eh, I needed the work…

I’m a very sheer, shimmery pink, and have pearlescent purple and golden glitter. If I had my druthers, I would have preferred a job looking smooth, shiny and dainty on the lips of ladies who lunch — the bored ones who like a kick of disco glitter to spice up their cucumber sandwiches at afternoon tea.

You think maybe you’d like to show me around? :)

  1. Gosh that is one long name! I still don’t know what to think of the little glittering particle. It looks great on you though!

  2. Ester says:

    I love your makeup here. Especially your eyes!

  3. Yelena says:

    I can’t help that I love this. I want to help it, but I have no willpower. I have to keep reminding myself of how often (not very) I wear my Candide Garden quad that I *had* to have. Which is not very often. I’m going to think about something else now. Like Tabs in the Curiosity photo, which is all kinds of awesome, and this evening’s movie. :)

    • Karen says:

      That’s a good quad, dude! You need to take that bad boy out and give it some love. Seriously.

      BTW, I’m writing the review for the new quad and it’s glitter city!

      • Kim says:

        I know! I really like it a lot. I’m just so crippled by my laziness! :)

        I just finished reading your glitter quad review and, despite the fallout, I still kind of want it. I’m going to try to hit a Sephora next week and check it out. It’s sad that I’m hoping I hate it in person.

  6. Windie says:

    Was “additional makeup worn in this look” part of a short series?

  7. Livy says:

    Do you know anything about where they’d be released internationally? There’s no sephoras here but I just have to have the eye quad and lip gloss(I’d never call it a balm, I found the one I tried before so drying!)

  8. Nina says:

    Well hello thar, Wild Rose! Youre pretty hawt!

  9. I like that from far away, it just lends a light pink flush to your lips–but up close, it’s like a party!! :P

  10. Jane says:

    Wow, your eyeliner looks SO amazing in this look! I was mesmerized. I have never tried gel eyeliner around the entire eye but I am def going to now.

  11. Lulle says:

    I have a couple Gelée d’Interdit lipglosses and I really like them! I never found their sparkles gritty either, and they attract so much light!

    Wild rose is a very nice shade for fall, I might consider getting it :)

    you have to try this lipstick from Guerlain http://bit.ly/OJivkD I think it is better than lip gloss.

  13. The colors here are all so awesome! Great collection!

    Karen, I wish I could pin your posts on Pintrest! That way I would be able to remember to buy them!

    Thanks,
