Review L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Lipstick.

L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Lipstick♦ (£12.50)
During the autumn and winter I go one one of two ways with my lip colours, bold and bright or nude and natural. L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate is a lipstick I've had for a little while and it was a shade that took me a long time to fall in love with, but now I wouldn't be without it.

Described as enhancing your natural lip colour by adding a delicate pink veil of colour this is exactly what this lipstick does. It's nothing too overpowering, it just adds a soft nude pink colour to your lips that ties your whole make up look together, no matter what other colours you're wearing on your eyes and cheeks.

The texture is absolutely perfect, it has extracts of Peony which help to make the texture so soft and I would describe it as being similar to a MAC Lustre lipstick. It has that lovely hint of glossiness without being overly shiny, the colour is rich and pigmented but not too bold and it feels so lightweight and comfortable. This is a shade that needs reapplying a few times throughout the day, but its balmy texture and wearable colour means that you don't need to worry about digging out a mirror from your bag and it always applies evenly.

At £12.50 it's getting towards the pricey side without tipping over on to the super high end scale. It's more expensive than a Topshop lipstick but it's less expensive than a MAC lipstick; definitely a treat purchase but one that's worth every single penny.

Have you tried any L'Occitane make up
Do the natural shades appeal to you or are you a lover of brighter shades?

  7. I'm going to shamefully admit something here... I don't own a single lipstick! :( I always thought they gave my face a hint of tranny... haha
    But your lipstick reviews are slowly giving me the courage to go out and try a few again! Especially the Topshop ones! We shall see ;)

    1. I wouldn't say it's quite as hydrating as a lip balm but it's definitely not drying & doesn't highlight dry areas on my lips <3
