If you are a l’Occitane fan you’ll have probably already heard about their new fragrance, Fleur Cherie. If you buy InStyle magazine, you’ll also know all about it, because this month’s has a free Fleur Cherie hand lotion! I have been using the body lotion, which is quite possibly the most fragranced body lotion I have ever used – it’s almost as potent as wearing the perfume itself! Lovely. But it’s not the body lotion that I want to talk about today, it’s the cosmetics – I have been playing about with the new range that launches early next month, and I made a video of my initial reactions to the products.
Spoiler alert: I love them! The Facecolour Powders (£12.50 each) come in the sweetest little cardboard containers; they remind me of eyeshadows that my Mum used to have on her dressing table! In the video I use the ‘Rose Dentelle’ as a blush – I think you’ll agree that it’s a splendid, suit-all-tones kind of colour. The ‘Bleu Damassé’ has two shades; a shimmery jade blue and a darker steel grey, both very wearable. The textures of the powders are excellent. I was also very impressed with the eyeliner – it was quite smudgy but very, very black, and I think well-priced at £8. The most memorable item for me is the Jewel lip palette (£22) which reminds me of a vintage pocketwatch! The lip shines inside are very wearable, have a slight shimmer and would suit both cool and warm skin tones.
But I’m totally ruining your viewing experience here, aren’t I? The video is obviously a much better guide and review than anything I could possibly write, so take a look. The only thing it can’t reveal to you is the gorgeous Fleur Cherie fragrance that gently scents the makeup powders – it makes them feel very ‘boudoir’!
