L'Occitane Pivoine Delicate collection review and swatches

L'Occitane products have the most delightful packaging don't they?  Just look at these beauties from the Pivoine Delicate collection - the packaging is just as gorgeous as the products inside.  They're such a lovely little treat and look so beautiful on my dressing table.


The Pivoine Delicate collection is inspired by a rare Peony flower found in France and includes fragrance, hand cream, a shimmering body powder and some lush lip products.  I got to try out three of the lip products and one of them also includes the fragrance as a double ended duo product - nifty!


This is the duo roll on fragrance and lip gloss wand.  I love the idea of this two in one product for saving space in your handbag - it would also remind me to reapply the perfume when I reapply lipgloss too.  The Pivoine delicate fragrance is a beautiful girlie floral scent and I've totally fallen for it.  I think it's a really romantic sort of smell - perfect for a date.  I'm planning to buy the full size fragrance for myself as a little treat.  


I also got to try the lipstick in the namesake shade  - Pivoine Delicate, and a gloss in Rose Fremissant (glad I don't have to try pronouncing that, thank goodness I'm not a you tuber!).  They're both pretty delicate colours  which give a really natural and fresh look to the lips.

In the swatches above left to right is the duo wand lip gloss in a peachy shade, Rose Fremissant baby pink lip gloss and then the peachy nude lipstick in Pivoine Delicate. Beautiful Spring shades.

I'd not tried any make-up from L'Occitane before, and have really enjoyed trying these.  The formulas of the lip glosses are not sticky, and Rose Fremissant has a pretty glitter running through without having a gritty texture.

You can pick  up the full Pivoine Delicate range direct from L'Occitane here.  The prices of the products I tried are as follows.

Duo roll on fragrance and lip gloss - £16

Lip shine - £11.50

Lipstick - £12.50

Aren't these just the prettiest products?

  2. Oh wow the lipgloss and the perfume duo stick is such a unique idea! I would have never imagined combining two very different products together, but they would honestly come in so handy. However, based on the swatches i do feel that the lipstick/lipgloss are very sheer, there isn't much pigmentation, specially based on the relatively high price! Great review though, i was not aware of this brand :)

    Love, Ana

    1. The lipgloss / perfume duo has been a staple in my handbag since I got it! You're right they are subtle / delicate shades, but I think that's the idea for this range xx

  4. I love the packaging of these products, it's so pretty! I love the idea of the lipgloss and perfume duo, it's such a random combination but it's two of those things that you definitely would touch up on throughout the day!
