So today we've got something a little special to share with you. We L'Occitane here on the blog. The products are always smell and look amazing - for me they do the best hand cream ever.
Well they're now releasing a Makeup range.
Launching in April 2012 and part of the Pivoine Delicate range, L'Occitane have created 3 lipsticks, 3 lip glosses and a gorgeous lip gloss/perfume combo which you can see above.
We were sent a lipstick in Pivoine Delicate, the gloss in Rose Fremissant and the Eau de Toilette and Gloss Duo.
Firstly I have to just stop and say that the packaging is absolutely stunning. It has a real vintage vibe to it and I have to say I love it. Gorgeous and chic.

The Eau de Toilette is gorgeous which blends the softness of peony and rose petals and lily of the valley. It smells so beautiful and is perfect for spring.
The gloss is such a gorgeous peachy shade that is to easy to wear. The gloss itself has a little brush which makes it easy to apply.

Lip gloss - Rose Fremissant
The main gloss range is slightly different and applies with a little padded foot instead, which I do think provides a much better coverage of the gloss. The lovely pink shade is a perfect colour for me - only downside is that it's shimmery (regular readers will know that I have serious issues with glittery/shimmery/sparkly products) but despite my issues the colour is so feminine and summery.
Lipstick - Pivoine Delicate
Finally we have my favourite of the range which is a gorgeous nude/pink. It's quite a sheer lipstick but I like the look. It applies amazingly and I love the end result.
Overall I'm really impressed with the range. It screams of girly elegance with its gorgeous delicate peaches, pinks and reds and the packaging is just so pretty. I do think they're a little pricey but I feel like the packaging and overall quality does go someway to justifying the price.
Eau de Toilette - £14.00
Lip Gloss - £11.50
Lipstick - £12.50
