The last time I was in the L'Occitane store I was eyeing these up but I didn't buy, but couldn't resist this time. The Pivoine Délicate collection centres around a fragrance which is described as "blending the silky softness of peony and rose petals with the green transparency of lily of the valley in a luminous floral accord with a soft powdery tail."
I've never been one for floral fragrances. Ever. I prefer my scents to be sweet or fruity. But after being ultimately enticed by the packaging of these products, I picked up the Pivoine Délicate Duo Roll-on and Gloss to have a sniff of the perfume inside of it and I was very pleasantly surprised. The fragrance is not overpowering in the slightest, which is what I find most floral perfumes to be. It's very subtle and feminine, and perfect for the summer. I'm glad that I picked up this instead of the lone lipgloss, as at £16 for both a lipgloss and a perfume it isn't too bad a price, and I can definitely see it becoming a stable in my everyday makeup as it's the perfect travel size. I thought it was my imagination at first, but the lip products are subtly scented with the Pivoine Délicate fragrance which is a nice change from the usual vanilla scented products.
The collection contains three lipsticks, Pivoine Délicate, Corail Charmant and Brun Discret. I picked up Pivoine Délicate, as it's a very natural shade close to my lip colour, making it perfect for everyday wear. My lips aren't in the best of condition at the minute, as I have an awful habit of biting them but the lipstick felt softening and gave them a subtle sheen without making them look caked and cracked. If you're looking for an everyday lipstick, I suggest you pick this up!
Brun Discret is a golden-beige colour, slightly darker than Pivoine Délicate, and Corail Charmant is described as a veil of coral-pink and golden reflections. I didn't try out Brun Discret in store, but did have a go of Corail Charmant and it's definitely a more natural shade of coral. All three lipsticks would be suitable for wear on a daily basis.
I don't tend to buy lipgloss because I hate having sticky lips, but the Pivoine Délicate lipgloss, although slightly thick in texture, applies smoothly and actually feels nice to wear! There are also three (four if you include the perfume and gloss duo) glosses in the collection, which compliment the three lipsticks. The lone lipglosses retail at £11.50.
In regards to the packaging, it makes the product feel incredibly luxurious and if you whipped these beauties out in front of anyone I'm sure they'd make a comment!
