Makeup and skin care products are some of the greatest indulgences in life. A fabulous lipstick can change an entire look, making you feel polished and beautiful.
L'??Occitane En Provence is known for it'??s high quality, natural ingredients and use of essential oils in fragrance, face care, and bath/body products. On May 9th, this brand branched into the realm of cosmetics, unveiling the Pivoine Flora Collection. I was sent two products from the new collection to preview. I was thrilled, to say the least; having been a decades long fan of L'??Occitane and a complete make-up junkie.
The Pivoine Flora Color Cream in Rose is essentially a cream blush with two shades; the deeper rose is intended to accent the cheek bones, while the pearly color is meant to highlight. I usually shy away from cream blushes as I have oily skin that tends to break out easily. This product actually felt extremely light going on, however, and lasted throughout my workout. I had forgotten how easy cream blush was to blend and manipulate, and enjoyed using a more emollient product over my usual powder one. The rosy pink also gave my skin a healthy, warm - yet completely natural - glow.
In the tube, the Pivoine Flora Lipstick in Fuschia was a brighter color than I'??d usually choose for myself (a shocking pink), so I was unsure at first. But on the lips it was almost a translucent shade of rose; making it appear as though my lips glowed from within. Because it'??s so sheer, the Pivoine Flora Lipstick doesn'??t deposit a lot of color. So if looking for a deeper hue, you may want to layer this shade over a lip liner (also making it longer lasting).
Like all other L'??Occitane items, these products smell and feel extremely luxurious. They'd make excellent choices, particularly if you'??re trying to achieve a natural make-up look.
