My go to nude lipgloss is Korres Nude 33, it’s my I wish I looked like Kim Kardashian but at least I have her rocking nude lip look. Mind you, I don’t LIKE nude lippies because they make me look like living dead girl. Hey, not that that’s a bad thing, zombies are people too ya know…but on me, fuller face, chubby cheeks, it isn’t rockin’!
However, after discovering Nude 33 suddenly the skies opened up, harp the Herald Angels sing, I could wear a nude lipgloss and rock it hardcore.
Up until now that’s about the only true nude lipgloss I really liked….but now L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Lip Shine in Rose Ballerine is my new OMG you NEED this nude lipgloss of choice.
I danced around the house and sung I feel pretty in Julie Andrew’s haughty British accent this morning. It’s that damn L’Occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Petals Eye Quartet…the shades just make me feel oh so pretty, witty, and gay! I was actually all of these things before the palette but the palette helped emphasize my sheer awesomeness….I’m kiddin’, I’m kiddin’ but seriously the palette is one of those soft, feminine little numbers that makes you feel pretty just staring at it.
The new Pivoine Flora Collection is an ode to the graceful beauty of the peony flower that sways gently in the breeze like a dainty little ballerina!

As you know from my prior post has a brand new Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection that released for Spring 2011. The collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze. The collection features a stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues with a formula that’s enriched with softening peony extract (in some cases the makeup even has the delightful aroma of the peony flower)!
I have a full review of the new L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Petals Eye Quartet that will be pop later today but I wanted to do a quick post with a look I used to create it!
This is a super easy Spring look for day use that can be achieved with a few simple steps.
The L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze, the brand unveiled its stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues and velvety textures enriched with softening peony extract earlier last week.
The new Healthy Glow Face Powder is a matte bronze that has a soft peony fragrance that warms up the complexion with a soft glow of the sun.
After reading Romeo and Juliet in 8th grade our English teacher proceeded to show us what I deemed the ultimate reenactment of the play, the 1968 film starring Olivia Hussey (SWING! Girl crush!).
I could have been deemed a geeky 13 year old because of the odd romance I had with Shakespeare but if in any way I was unsure of that love and passion for the poet it was easily erased as soon as I saw that faithful film. There are so many parts in the film that I love but Mercutio’s death always remains a scene stealer for me. John McEnery passionately shouting, “A plague on both your houses….” ah it’s the stuff of pure legend.
Speaking of plagues….I swear liquid cream lipsticks are an utter plague. They look awful on me particularly because my lips tend to be dry and cracked in the colder weather and adding liquid lipstick on top…well, it’s gross looking to say the least. Plus is it me or does liquid lipstick have a guns will travel personality going on? Because I swear I’ll put it on my lips in the morning and within 20 minutes it’ll travel from my lips to my upper lip, to my chin, and onto my cheek and let’s not forget on my teeth. It has a life of its own…like the blob! A living, breathing lipstick!
Bare Escentuals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor is a new cream liquid lipstick from the brand released for Spring. I actually purchased a kit from QVC back in November that had a shade included…..here’s some more thoughts on Pretty Amazing Lipcolor and a few swatches!
I’m happy to share the news of the L’Occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection that released yesterday for Spring 2011.
The collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze, L’Occitane unveils its stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues and velvety textures enriched with softening peony extract.
