L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Collection Lipstick in Fuschia Is Perfect for Casual Fridays

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Of the products I’ve played with so far from the new limited edition L’Occitane Pivoine Flora collection, my favorite has to be the Lipstick in Fuschia ($15, one of four shades; yes, here Fuschia is spelled with an ‘s’ before the ‘chia’).

It gets the pigment just right, walking that fine line between mediocre pigmentation and high-maintenance, with a finish that still looks natural even with its subtle shine. Perfect for days when I want a casual lip look without the blinding bling of a gloss.



Wear time clocks in at around two and a half hours — pretty good considering how thin and slippery it feels. The rose scent and flavor are nice touches, too, although I do detect a hint of wax. Luckily, it dissipates within a few minutes.

And they’re priced right in line with MAC Lipsticks, which isn’t bad. When it comes to these lippies, I’m a big fan. :)

PRICE: $15 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at L’Occitane stores and also online

    That lipstick looks superb and so do you Karen. Does it has some glitter in it (appear in the swatch) or is the shine because of lighting??

  3. Terri says:

    That color is lovely on you! When I first heard fuschia, I thought that the color would be aggressively bright, but it is actually quite lovely.

    I hope you are doing well! Do you have big plans for the holiday weekend?
