Hello my little loves, today I’m doing a product review which I have REALLY enjoyed writing and I hope you enjoy reading it too!
As many of us in the blogging community will know, the lovely Fleur de Force has been a very busy lady recently. As though publishing a book and launching her own line of lashes wasn’t enough for her, Fleur has just launched her own make up range too. This makes me so happy, although I don’t know Fleur, I have followed her blog and YouTube channel for years, in fact she was one of the first bloggers I discovered, so to see her doing so well is amazing!
The range contains six lip glosses, two eye shadow palettes, a make up bag and a compact mirror. Although I could easily have bought everything, (there wasn’t one item that didn’t appeal!) my bank account rejoiced as I restrained myself and purchased just a few items.
First of all I’d like to say that I absolutely adore Fleur’s branding; it’s simple but beautiful. The pastel water colours fading into white are right up my street, as are the tiny golden stars which I think are a lovely personal touch – if you’re a
stalker follower of Fleur’s blog or YouTube channel, you’ll know how much she loves stars. I think it’s nice to see something which illustrates that Fleur has control over these kinds of projects.
Starting off with the two lip glosses, I chose “Starry Starry Night” (Top) and “Written in the Stars” (Bottom) I really love the colours of these two, but obviously I would say that since I chose them
duh! I’ve been wearing Written in the Stars to work a lot over the past few days and this really works as a day time colour for me as it’s quite muted but pretty. Starry Starry Night is a colour I would wear on a weekend or evening and I haven’t had chance to experiment with it too much but the swatches below capture their colours quite well.
Moving on to consistency and feel, generally I find lipgloss a pain because whilst it looks lovely, if anything dares to touch your lips whilst wearing it then it’s stuck there forever, but Fleur has got it down with these. They’re more of a lip-balm-from-a-tube texture, yes there is a bit of stickiness but nothing a girl can’t live with. The built in wand makes application simple and precise, and the product applies nicely to the lip. In terms of durability, these are pretty average. I found myself reapplying every few hours which, considering the price point, isn’t something to complain about in my opinion.
And now for my favourite product
drum roll please the eyeshadow quad in “Lunar Rose”. I absolutely adore these four little eyeshadows and I am a self confessed eyeshadow snob so I don’t say that very often! The swatch picture doesn’t do it justice, but the colours in this palette are super pigmented which is fab because the colours themselves are beautiful – the palette is a better representation of the colour than the swatch to be honest.
This is a great product to go from day-time to night-time as the darkest purpley colour can really build and blend to an amazing smokey eye. The little brush that comes with the quad is good for the price, I wouldn’t use it on the whole eye but it’s nice for adding detail or applying colour to the inner corner of your lid. I could write an essay on how much I love these eyeshadows, but instead I will just say buy it now!!!
And finally, the little compact mirror. Feel Unique were offering this as a free gift when buying two products or more, so obviously my order qualified for this, otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it as I already have tonnes of similar mirrors. It’s nice, it’s pretty, when I look into it I see myself looking back at me so it does its job! Ideally, I would have liked to see this have a cover on it as I think that the side with the mirror on will scratch and cloud up after a bit of time in my bag.
Overall I was really impressed with these products from Fleur, I can sometimes be a bit skeptical when people in the public eye bring out their own line of products but these are amazing quality especially considering the price.
Have you tried any of the Fleur de Force products from Feel Unique? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
