Terre d'Oc Figue Zagora (208) Lipstick




I was introduced to Terre d'Oc during the Elements show in January. The eco-friendly French brand had a lovely display of skin care and makeup products and I learned that they also have a range of home fragrance and organic teas. The products are easy to find in Europe (including online), but now there's also a NYC Terre d'Oc boutique in Rockefeller Center (a visit is in my near future) where all the natural, delicious-smelling pretties can be found.




 The formulas are rich with good-for-you ingredients such as argan oil and shea butter. The percentage of organics in every product is listed on the box (see photo), so you know exactly what you get. This is not a 100% crunchy granola brand: the products are scented  and the color cosmetics of Terre d'Oc  have a French flair. The shades are elegant and understated, not necessarily light and subdued. Take for example this lipstick, Figue Zagara (#208). The formula is light, sheer, and comfortable, but the color is deep enough for a dramatic look. I love this dark purple and find it wonderfully flattering (my lips make it pull a little more pink than the swatch).

Bottom Line: I'm sold.

Terre d'Oc cosmetics and home products can be found at their boutiques in NYC (55 West 49th Street) and in Europe, as well as online if you're in the UK. US residents can also be order by phone (347-380-7482). The lipstick was given to me for consideration by the brand's rep at the Elements show.

  1. Do go visit TD in RC. The products look great and the SAs are helpful. I work in RC and am hoping to spend more time there. Also, great samples!

  2. As a huge fan of green makeup, I've been curious about this brand for awhile. Just ordered a lipstick and gloss - thanks for the inspiration! Another green brand to try: Couleur Caramel. Excellent color payoff, beautiful textures!
