Fleur De Force Written in the Stars – Swatch & Review

A few weeks ago I picked up Written in the Stars from Fleur De Force’s new range at FeelUnique, I have a well publicised love of Fleur, I love her videos and out of everyone I watch she is the most relatable to me – beyond her youtube career and regular worldwide jetsetting, her english countryside life, with her dogs and her husband reminds me very much of her own.


I must admit with other products from Youtuber’s own ranges being largely disappointing when it comes to makeup, I didn’t have high hopes for this as much as I wanted to love it. But boy was I wrong, when I was on holiday I picked up 2 Vamplify glosses from MAC, I said in my review of those that I’m not a big lipgloss wearer and I knew I would get infrequent wear out of them – day to day I’m a lipstick girl. Since this arrived about 3 weeks ago I would say 4 out of 5 days a week (weekends are for testing and photographing new products), I have worn this.

The packaging of this is basic but nice, with metallic pewter chrome lid and writing it doesn’t look or feel cheap – although I am surprised she didn’t opt for rose gold given her obsession with the shade!


It is the perfect wearable rosey nude and reminds me of a gloss version of MAC Brave, it has the same easy wearability. In terms of pigmentation and how long a wear it gives, I honestly can’t tell the difference between this and the MAC Vamplify formulation – if this had been in the MAC packages I wouldn’t have been disappointed with it at all, and of course it’s a fraction of the cost. This has the same kind of texture, and for a non gloss wearer, I’m becoming a convert, it does of course have a tackiness to it, but doesn’t have the feeling that you’re attempting to prize your lips apart after being coated with superglue.


Whilst I like those MAC shades, I kind of regret buying them now, as I think I even like this a little bit more because the wands on those were so long they were more difficult to sweep on the lips and get a precise line, this I can apply without even looking. It wears away gracefully after about 2-3 hours with no patchiness as it wears off. I can tell I’ll be going back to get some more of these soon, I’m already compiling my list of ones I like, but I am almost tempted to get them all, which is unheard of for me to be THAT in love with a product.


Have you tried Fleur’s line? If so what shades would you recommend?

    This gloss is the cutest shade of pink and it looks great on you! 🙂 I have a darker lip tone, do you think it’ll be opaque enough to achieve the same colour have?

      It is opaque for sure – it looks like a natural your lips but better shade on me so I’m sure it would look nice as a paler shade too 🙂 x

    Trust Fleur to actually have DECENT products – she’s the most levelheaded out of the bunch of them. We all know she doesn’t need the money, so she’s really doing this for the passion. This shade looks fantastic and I can see how opaque and smooth the formula is!

      The most impressive out of all that I’ve tried! Good products because they are good products not just compared to every other YouTube range! Really pleased with it, looked at all the shades last night and think I’ll be getting them all!
