terre d'Oc Natural Lipstick in Cerise 202* (4g, £16.95, link)
One of my beauty resolutions this year is to shake things up a bit make-up wise, and that includes straying out of my neutral lipped comfort zone and experimenting with some other shades. To ease myself in, I opted to try out one of terre d'Oc's Natural Lipsticks in Cerise.
The first thing I'm sure you noticed with this lipstick is its size, or lack thereof. This thing is tiny, but is actually the same full sized 4g as most traditional lipsticks, just minus the excess packaging. This compact 'eco stick' is most welcome in my already over-flowing make-up bag - I think it's genius!
Cerise is a 'morrocan inspired cherry red', which looks intimidatingly dark in the bullet, but transfers much lighter and brighter on the lips. The formula contains fair trade argan oil and organic natural waxes so it feels very moisturising and comfortable on. I didn't experience any dryness at all and it reminds me a lot of MAC's Cremesheen lippies. Given that this is a natural and organic lipstick, I wasn't expecting the pigmentation to be this good and I was also surprised by the wear time which lasted around 4 hours before I needed to reapply.
It's a few pounds pricier than say MAC lipsticks, but if you're after a new lippie that's packed full of natural, sustainable and organic ingredients, then it's really quite reasonably priced when you think about it!
Have you tried any terre d'Oc lipsticks?
