L’occitane Pivoine Delicate Lip Shine Review & Swatches

With girlish packaging, romantically scented formulas, and a perfect combination of practical and pretty, most all of the L’Occitane makeup pieces I’ve collected have become cherished pieces in my rather large makeup stash.

I truly look forward to L’occitane Makeup releases and they have delivered ever Spring since the original launch. I’m actually kinda of happy they don’t readily carry a makeup collection in store. It keeps from overwhelming and boring me. This way, when a release does come along I can get terribly happy and excited about it without saying to myself, “Oh, this again?”

The L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Delicate Collection will be launching shortly and with it three new shades of Pivoine Delicate Lip Shine.

Take a look!

Although I’ve reviewed them numerous times I thought I’d take a second out today to show you one of the three new shades of L’occitane Pivoine Delicate Lip Shine.

This glistening sheer pink gloss imparts more sparkle than color but it proves ideal for topping your favorite lipstick or gloss with.

The gloss has a little lip brush which builds product onto lips nicely. I always appreciate a good lip brush as they allow you to build gloss so easily and this one has no splitting issue and slips right into the barrel easily.

The gloss formula is very lightweight and has a hydrating feel with a shimmering, glossy finish. It wears well even though it lacks a sticky texture. Applied over lipstick or lipstain it’ll last 4 hours and without it you’ll see 3 hours before a touch up.

The formula is scented and flavored with Peony extract which promises to soften lips. Be aware if you’re sensitive, it does have a perfume-y scent and taste.

Overall, L’Occitane proves they aren’t just about skincare and fragrance time and time again with these little makeup releases. A high quality formula, flirty little packaging, and decent prices keeps me coming back for more. I love these makeup releases and look forward to them every year.

Great stuff!

Muse Approved for purchase.

The collection will launch shortly in store and online at usa.loccitane.com

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ooooh! I’m really loving that color. 🙂 Muse, you’re going to get me into a lot of financial trouble with all of these posts about new awesome products I don’t own.
