Givenchy Rouge Inderdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick in Noir Revelateur

For day 13, I've got an interesting Givenchy lipstick sample that I'd been very excited to try on. I jumped on this when Sephora made it available as a 100 point perk because I was curious but simply didn't want to buy the full-sized product until I knew if I would like it or not.

I'm glad I didn't get it in full size. First, this sample is too cute for words. Second, this scary black color is really not something I'd buy. Ever. You remember Clinique's Black Honey? I didn't like that one. That's what this reminds me of. My issue with Noir Revelateur is that when I put it on, it goes on this sheer almost black color and I'm not quite certain when I should stop applying to make sure that I've covered the lips in full. When I'm putting it on, I can see the black color in certain areas and in other places, I don't. While it seems to gradually fade out to a sheer dark pink on me, for however long that takes, I feel like I can still see black on the outline of the lips and that makes me uncomfortable. Other than that, I think I like the formula. It glides on nicely and feels comfortable on.

As to whether or not I would try other colors, at this point, the answer is no. I looked at the packaging of the full-sized product and it doesn't really appeal to me either. I'm not going to whine and say, why can't they package it like regular lipstick, because I understand that the brand is about having a little of that edginess, some leather or other. There are certain Givenchy products that I love, for example: their loose powder Prisme Libre Voile Audacieux and the Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen. I don't just like them, I truly love them. But their lipsticks are something I tend to pass on. Noir Revelateur will be no exception.
