L’Occitane Delice des Fleurs Violette Lip Gloss

Hi Ladies,

Today, I’m going to review a lip gloss I bought from L’Occitane a couple of months ago.  I went to L’Occitane after a long time and wanted to buy something really small, that wouldn’t break the bank. I tried some of the lip glosses, lip balms available and liked this Delice de Fleurs Violette Lip Gloss.

Delice de Fleur range had two colours available – Rose and Violette.  I tried both of them, and the SA felt rose suited me more, but I preferred the Violette more. It is a very pretty berry shade. I bought this during Valentine’s day as a gift to myself.  I had an eye on it from Christmas onwards as I am always a sucker for Christmas limited-edition products.  This is my first and ever makeup product from L’Occitane, as I was never attracted to their limited makeup range before.  To tell the truth, I did not actually need a lip gloss, I was mere attracted to the sleek and cute tin and had to buy it! 😛

Product Description:

The Delice des Fleurs Violet Lip Gloss, with its sweet fragrance, softens the lip while leaving them with a subtly iridescent natural violet colour. It can be applied on the lips using a finger or a brush application.

My Experience with L’Occitane Delice des Fleurs Violette Lip Gloss:

This balm comes is a super cute tin which is slim and handy to carry around. The lid is a slide on lid and works perfectly well. The balm itself is quite creamy and thick. However when applying with fingers, the gloss melts and becomes easy to glide on. The colour is shiny and has just enough pigment to give a touch of colour. However, the colour looks quite bright in the tin. It has a very faint flowery scent.  The gloss does not moisturise lips, but glides on smoothly and makes lips look shiny by adding lustre.  Even though this gloss can be and is designed to be applied using a finger, I think using a lip brush is more hygienic and will look better on the lips. This lip gloss does not last longer on lips. However, this tin is easy for touching up during the day,so it is not an issue. This is also drying on the lips.

The violette colour I would say would look good on all skin tones and for any occasion as it is quite a versatile colour. This is overall a subdued version of any other lip gloss you would have used so far.  I personally don’t like heavy and sticky lip glosses which look artificial and heavy on the lips.

I still have heaps left in the container, so would not need to repurchase soon. Even though this was a limited edition product, I am quite keen on trying similar products from L’Occitane in future.

  1. i like such cute packaged products but i mostly dont buy these because of the unhygienic factor. i wonder why they named it a gloss though. Like the color also. :))
