terre d'Oc Lipstick Review

Ahhh Spring…(insert belly laughter here) the elusive weather we have all been waiting for. As I post this blog post, I am looking at snow falling outside my window and declaring that it still looks like winter to me! I say no more….

Don’t you just love it when you discover a product that you didn’t know existed but which you end up loving? 
Cue in terre d’Oc and their Eco Certified, Fair Trade Loving and all round dancing lipstick in Plum 209. The very gorgeous plummy lipstick that I have been wearing and loving for the last wintry month.

I was sent this lipstick to review a little while ago, but unfortunately I have had majorly dry lips this winter (I blame it on the nasty bug I had, which knocked my immune system for six and has my skin and lips in a serious dryness/dehydrated rebellious mode).  So I have more or less lived on tinted lip balms and only picked it up to use properly over the last month, and I’m so glad I did because this bad boy is so creamy and moisturising that it hasn’t affected my lips in any way.

The first thing I have to highlight is that terre d’Oc produces natural and organic skincare and makeup products. The benefits of that mean that the lipstick uses organic and fair-trade ingredients. The second thing I noticed is that the packaging itself is titchy when you compare it to a lot of other lipstick brands. I initially thought this meant there was a lot less product but in fact you actually get 4 grams of product, which is more than some other brands! The reason for the compact friendly design is that they focus on producing eco designs, which means a reduction in packaging and with more product as a bonus.

Texture wise its very creamy and it goes on really smoothly. It’s more of a moisturising lipstick (this might be due to the fact that it’s enriched with argan oil) but I love that it’s not too glossy or overly shiny and that I didn’t have to top it off with a gloss.

I have quite dark lips, and usually have to mute out my natural lip colour before applying a lipstick if I want a real colour payoff. However I didn’t need to do that with this lipstick, which definitely gives it extra points in my book.

The only downside I found with it was the lasting power – I find it only lasts for about 3 hours on me before I need to touch it up, but this is a small price for the rest of it’s benefits.

It retails for £16.95 and can be found here terre d"Oc

I love the idea of a moisturising lipstick. My lips are always dry! 3 hours though?
