Today I’m reviewing a lovely pink lipstick from L’occitane Pivoine Flora collection – shade no. 03 Fuschia.
Price : Rs 1050 for 3.5 g
What L’occitane says about the Product :
This semi-sheer lipstick melts onto the lips, coating them with shiny colours.
My take on the Product
The lipstick comes in a stiff cardboard packaging with a lovely floral pattern over it. I’ve never encountered cardboard packaging in lipsticks before and wouldn’t have expected it to be so sturdy but it is. The lipstick has a rather strong floral scent, not too sweet or unpleasant so should not be an issue unless you’re picky about scents in your makeup.
The texture is soft and smooth and as described by the brand, the lipstick literally melts onto the lips giving a lovely glossy finish. It is quite sheer so on my rather colorless lips, I get a whisper of pink which is looks very natural. If you have some natural color in your lips, it will look a little deeper pink but still quite natural. The formula is quite hydrating and very comfortable on the lips. Being sheer and glossy, it doesn’t wear too long. I get typically about 3 hours of wear and it doesn’t generally survive a full meal. But if you love sheer, hydrating lipsticks and don’t mind retouching the color, you would love this one!
The shade Fuchsia is a pretty rose pink shade that would look nice on everyone though if you have very pigmented lips, it might not show up significantly. For me, I like to wear this with smudged kohl and a soft pink blush for a effortless natural look. The shade has some very tiny shimmer but it is very well integrated into the formula and can barely be seen. I generally pick intensely pigmented colors but I was quite surprised how much I liked this sheer one on my lips!
How the shade looks on me :

- Doesn’t stain
The NOT-SO-GOOD about L’occitane Pivoine Flora Lipstick Fuschia :

- Low staying power
L’occitane Pivoine Flora Lipstick in Fuschia is sheer rosy pink that adds a whisper of glossy pink color to the lips. The texture is smooth and hydrating and if you don’t mind retouching the color every few hours, you’ll love this lipstick. I love to wear this soft pink when I’m aiming for a natural no-makeup kind of look and it pairs beautifully with smudged kohl and soft pink blush.
