First, mood rings. Now, mood makeup! How do you feel about lip products designed to change colors once you get them on your pout? The idea’s nothing new, but Givenchy’s new take on it is making me smile. :)

Some of that’s because of these chic, sleek outfits. Givenchy always turns that mutha out! when it comes to good-looking packaging.

And then there’s the way new Magic Lipstick Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #57 ($30) and Le Gloss Revelateur De Liv Magic Lipgloss Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #34 ($27.50) feel on my lips — lightweight, silky and comfortable, like my favorite silk dress.

Both the Magic Lipstick Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #57 and Le Gloss Revelateur De Liv Magic Lipgloss Lipcolor Revealer in LIVely Pink #34 were inspired by Givenchy spokeswoman Liv Tyler, hence the shout-out to her name in the products’ spelling.

Apply either the light pink Lipstick or clear Gloss on bare lips, and ahhh… Feels so good! Lo and behold, about a minute or so later, both colors have changed into deeper pink hues that last about two hours on me.

I know! That’s not very long at all. A bummer considering the price.

But I do like how natural I think these look on my lips, almost like sheer lip tints or balms, and I can see myself wearing them when I’m feeling lazy after applying a pair of bold smokey eyes.

With their subtle pigments, unflavored formula and faint rose fragrance, I think these are kind of a fun extra to have around, but the price and limited wear time may hold many gals/guys back. Die-hard Givenchy fans and high-end makeup collectors who love the look of understated, barely-there pink lips still might fall in love.

    I do love the idea of mood makeup and the packaging on these is gorgeous, so gorgeous that even though I really have no use for these, I still want them ._.

  2. LEAH says:

    What lashes are you wearing? I must get about 145353 pairs of them!

  3. Tracy says:

      Hi Dani!

      Thanks for noticing the blush. I just re-discovered an old favorite — it’s Becca Flowerchild! Have you tried any Becca blushes? They’re amazing.

  5. jaymie says:

    LOVE the lashes! What are they?

  6. Soo Jin says:

    Karen! I love the eye look! Would it be too much to ask for a tutorial on this one?? :)

  7. Nadja says:

    Please tell us the brand of your lashes:) gorgeous!

  8. Ok I am officially in love with that lipgloss–but I really hope that if I get it, it’ll turn a similar shade of pink on me because it looks AMAZING on your lips! And your cheeks are so glowy and perfectly flushed! And I really love how you did you eyeliner with that shimmery wash of color on your lids…ok, so I love the whole look. :P

  9. I’m not too impressed with the rest of the collection, but that lipstick does look great!

    It’s so beautiful! I’m secretly glad about the 2 hour wear time because I know I’d just be buying this and never wearing it (like the dozens of other lip products I have!). :)

    PS Bourne tonight. Woo Hoo! And, TGIF!

    • Karen says:

      TGIF! Are you watching it tonight? Every time I see our boyfriend (hahaha!) I can’t help but think of him saying “Brows, lashes, lips. Frame the face.”

      See, even Jeremy Renner wants you to wear lip products! How can you refuse?!

      • Kim says:

        KAREN! You’re right – how can I refuse when you put it like that? :) I’m definitely going tonight. How about you? It’s not getting great reviews, but I’m quite predisposed to like it anyway. Oh, and I recommend going to Rotten Tomatoes today just because our boyfriend is plastered all over their page. hee hee!

        • Karen says:

          Yeah, I’m dragging El Hub. He has no interest in seeing it but he’ll just have to deal. I figure I can bribe him with movie snacks…it always works like a charm.

          Did you end up watching The Dark Knight Rises?

          • Kim says:

            The Hubs didn’t have high hopes and is not at all interested in JR’s forearms (or hearing about them) but he said it was “acceptable” which is decent praise from him. He thought Edward Norton had a particularly strong performance, but I’m so used to liking him in everything that I just expected it. :)

            No, I haven’t seen DKR yet. I wanted to get there while it was still in theaters but it would give the boys nightmares and The Hubs had been out of town quite a bit. It’s still playing but I’m running out of time!

  11. Nina says:

    Im not thrilled w/ the lip products in this collection – I mean theyre pretty and all, but they seem so dupeable, with products that are way cheaper too!

  12. I love Mood lip colors. They always leave behind a soft natural stain! Your lashes have created quite a sensation!

    Your skin looks so amazing and glowing!

  14. Lulle says:

    I love the clear tube with the pink brush. Yeah I’m a sucker for packaging gems!
    With this type of mood changing shade, I’m always curious about how it will turn out on me…

    I love the way this looks! I much prefer using something like this to a nude lipstick with cat eyes. Nude never looks natural on me, but a “bitten lip” always looks flattering.
