When this lipstick from the new L'Occitane Pivoine Limited Edition Collection dropped through my letterbox, it was love at first sight. I absolutely adore everything about this lipstick. The pastel pink textured cardboard packaging (which has been imprinted with the peony flower which the collection is based upon) is divine - and it's home to the most beautiful soft pink lipstick I have ever come across. The shade is 02 - aptly named Pivoine Delicate - so if you're drawn to gentle ballerina pinks, you may just love this one as much as me.
Having not tried L'Occitane cosmetics before (I'll be honest - I wasn't aware they had a makeup range) I didn't know what to expect in terms of quality, but I was highly impressed with the formula of this lipstick. Soft, creamy, moisturising, good pigmentation - it has it all. It leaves a slightly dewy finish to the lips which I love and it's fairly long lasting. For me, this lipstick is perfection and I can't get enough of it! I had no idea L'Occitane created lipsticks but after falling in love with this one I'll certainly be taking a peek at others on offer. Their lipsticks are on the pricey side but I'll happily pay that amount for such an incredible product.
