This month, L’Occitane released a limited edition range called Pivoine Délicate – focused around a new fragrance – Pivoine Délicate, inspired by a rare peony found in Provence, and a make up and body collection to compliment it.
Within the make up collection are three lipsticks, three lip shines, and an eau de toilette & gloss combo in gorgeous packaging. I was sent some of these to try out.
The three things I have are all part of the same family of colours, but all different from one another.
The lipstick I have is No 2 – Pivoine Délicate (£12.50), and is my favourite of the products I was sent. The bullet looks like it’s quite a dark dusty rose colour, but it’s actually very sheer with just a hint of a peachy colour. It feels very moisturising, almost lip balm-like in consistency; feeling like it’s doing good things to my lips at the same time as making them look beautiful. I love love love it.
The lip shine, No 2 – Rose Fremissant (£11.50) is a soft jelly pink, with teeny silvery flecks of microglitter. The shimmer adds dimension to the product, making lips look even more shiny, and fuller. It comes with a brush applicator on the wand which helps with precise application. Again, this isn’t a strong shade, more of a delicate hint of colour. It smells and tastes slightly of the Pivoine Délicate fragrance.
Lastly, the Duo Eau De Toilette & Gloss (£14.00). This is an absolutely amazing idea that I wish more brands would take note of! In perfect handbag size, at one end is a 5.5ml bottle of Pivoine Délicate eau de toilette, and the other end, a 5.5ml bottle of lip gloss. Genius!
The fragrance is sweet and floral. It smells powdery and delicate – containing citrus fruits, white peach, rose, peony, lily of the valley, white musk and light woods. It’s a nice smell, but not something I would wear personally. It’s one for the Flowerbomb lovers of the world!
The lip gloss also has a hint of the fragrance. It’s comes with a sponge applicator and is a soft apricot shade with the tiniest flecks of golden microglitter. It looks almost iridescent once it’s on the lip. A very pale, soft, delicate glossy colour.
L’Occitane is not a brand that I would normally consider when looking for make up, but I am thoroughly impressed with all three of these products and has definitely put them on the make up map for me. I am sure they will all be used during the summer months – I adore them!
Have you used L”Occitane make up before? What do you think of these products?
