The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

I know some of us love anything Violette_fr creates so letโ€™s discuss her line as it grows! These small lines will always have my heart. Sheโ€™s such a talented makeup artist and love that she also included skincare and fragrance.  I have loved her past collabs and look forward to any newness in her well-edited line. Sounds like more Yeux Paint shades are coming soon and itโ€™ll be great if she develops new lips, cheeks and more!  Share all your pics and thoughts! ๐Ÿ’‹ Photos from her Instagram.

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Oh yes, those look extremely wearable, @Sunnysmom. Now to try to pick just one! 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Yup a good thumbs up to these @eshoe . 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Adding my little collection with a few thoughts to share as well!

Spoiler
Boum-Boum Milk - the description on this is quite accurate. It is touted as a โ€˜toner, serum & moisturizerโ€™ all-in-one, and is does just what it says.

It behaves like a rich essence, and somehow manages to leave my skin feeling soft and not tight/dry in the morning when used at night. It is pretty versatile, standing in for a complicated routine when I am not up for it. My favorite use for it has been as a post wash-off, pre-sheet mask prep.


Baume Shine - I have found this to be an emollient highlighting balm that is easy to use (a common theme here!) and applies a very soft glow.

Avec Amour - this perfume oil is perhaps the most complicated of the three. The ombrรฉ blue bottle feels luxe, with its weighted gold-tone cap. The roller moves easily and applies smoothly. The scent is different from any other perfume I have tried. My first impression was playdoh, and it is still what I notice when I first apply it. But then it blends with my skin and cascades into this curious blend of subtle vetiver and bergamot. I donโ€™t think if I were looking for a vetiver perfume, I would choose this one; it is far too light and playful as opposed to mysterious and smoky. There seems to be a tiny note of something spicy - coriander-like, maybe, that draws me in. Similar to how the Kiehlโ€™s Coriander scent is. A very unique scent, and one that makes me smile whenever I wear it.

Beauty as art, I love it!

 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Thanks @eshoe , very good to hear your review on these items.  Iโ€™m so sad as my poor highlighter broke after I used it yesterday! ๐Ÿ˜ข Itโ€™ll still work but a little tricky.  I will probably have to try the perfume and Boum-Boum Milk at some point. The perfume intrigues me.  I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever bought one that I havenโ€™t been able to try in person first! 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Oh no, @Sunnysmom - I am so sorry to hear your highlighter is somewhat out of commission. I can see how it would be easy for that to happen, though.

 

I have purchased a few perfumes scent โ€˜unseen.โ€™ I havenโ€™t had a terrible one, which is surprising because I donโ€™t think I have a real nose for detecting separate scents in a perfume. I usually go off the description, which of course this one was incredibly vague. After it changed on her site, to include vetiver, I knew I had to try it.  

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Yup Iโ€™ll have to just make do with it for now. Bummed tho! ๐Ÿ˜• Oh thatโ€™s great that you have had luck with fragrances. I do like vetiver so I bet I would like it too. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Just pull me in why don't you @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

๐Ÿ˜‚ guess itโ€™s what we do on here eh @lmaster ?! itโ€™s how I feel when I look at your gorgeous baby blues in shadows too! Just want to buy em all! ๐Ÿ˜˜ 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

You're so sweet!! ๐Ÿ’‹๐ŸŒน๐Ÿค— @Sunnysmom 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

@Sunnysmom oooh! I haven't tried anything from this brand but I am loving the aesthetic !

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Me too @Kim888 , so simple yet love the wax seal inspiration on top of them too. 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

@Sunnysmom Wow I'm obsessed with those photos! I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye on this brand. 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Sheโ€™s really fun @Samtian ! 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Ooooh thank you for starting this thread, @Sunnysmom! The images you used are so pretty๐Ÿ’– I will have to update with some thoughts on the items I have (so far)๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Thanks so much @eshoe , I figured we could have fun with her new collection right?! Love to hear your thoughts on what youโ€™ve triedโ€ฆ so farโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜‚. I have a hunch those new Bisou Balms will find a new home also as well?! Know youโ€™re really behaving. I restrained myself on just the one. Baby steps. 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Oh, I do want to try that balm at some point, @Sunnysmom! My current inventory begs to differ, though ๐Ÿ˜„ I canโ€™t remember the last time I finished a balm, now glosses are another story. But yes....at some point. 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

I have the Baume Shine complexion universal highlighter and Petal Bouche Matte. The Baume shine is small but mighty , not sticky nor glittery, dries down well and is creamy.  Just healthy illuminating glow. The lip is definitely matte but not uncomfortable at all and the color is justโ€ฆ glorious?! Lol. Itโ€™s the best reimagined velvety rose. A bit tricky to apply as it goes on quickly and spreads but itโ€™s manageable once you work with it. I would love to see the applicator a bit smaller and controlled but oh man the color is breathtaking! Waiting to receive the Betise Bisou Balm, just out yesterday. I know @eshoe has tried the Boum-Boum Milk and likes it,  did you also get the fragrance? Love to hear any of your thoughts. @itsfi did you try anything yet? ๐ŸŒน

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

@Sunnysmom, thank you for the tag. ๐Ÿ™‚ I placed a few items in my cart ๐Ÿ›’ but haven't had a chance to go back and edit it. That highlighter is gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜ and that red lippie is you! 

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Sounds good @itsfi ! Me too! Teehee, could this be a HG red?! Nah, always room for more. Besides this is a matte. Lol ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

This lip looks so saturated on your skin, @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿคฉ

Re: The VIOLETTE_FR Thread

Itโ€™s really something @eshoe , so good!
