NEW! L’Occitane Lip Collection!
L’Occitane, the luxury French bath, fragrance and skincare line recently debuted their new Lip Collection. This incredible collection includes moisturizing balms, scrubs and lipstick infused with fruits, vegetables, and herbs from Provence and the Mediterranean Basin. And I’m super excited about it all!
First, let’s prep our lips with the Delicious Lip Scrub $19. These scrubs look like jam, complete with seeds but without the harshness. I’m so, so tempted to eat them with a spoon! But don’t–instead apply to damp lips, gently massage and then rinse off with water for the perfect base before lipstick. All the delicious lip scrubs contain Vitamin E and are enriched with pomegranate oil, pomelo, mandarin extract and carrot for exfoliating perfection. There are 3 fruits to choose from: Marmalade Kiss,Raspberry Crush and Fabulous Fig have extracts from the fruit which bears their name. Lip exfoliating has never been this fun or tasted this sweet!
My favorites from the Lip Collection are the Fruity Lipsticks $20. These lipsticks are infused with cold-pressed pomegranate oil, organic carrot oil from Provence, hand-picked Corsican pomelo oil and vitamin E to provide color and shine, with buildable intensity and moisture.
Okay, beauties this is lipstick heaven! The color glides on, is sheerer than a cream lipstick but has more tint than a lip balm. The color is slightly buildable, uber moisturizing, and non-sticky. The formula is vegetarian-friendly and free from silicone and animal derivative ingredients. They are so comfortable to wear and the fun, fruity shades remind me of popsicles. In fact, they kind of look like you have been eating popsicles! These are available in 8 shades and I have 4 to show you today.
The packaging is a sunshine yellow bullet with the L’Occitane logo printed in gold. So cute!
TheFruity Perfecting Balm $24, is a highly moisturizing lip balm that changes color, based on your skin’s pH, when in contact with your lips. On me, it is a tender pink. The other Fruity Lipsticks retail for $20.
Provence Sunset is a pretty sheer coral, Provence Call is a fun lilac with pink undertone and my fav Plum Plum Girl is a strawberry pink. All these shades are perfect for minimal summer makeup days and leave behind a slight stain. They aren’t long lasting, but I didn’t expect them to be. I wore Plum Plum Girl all day yesterday and loved wearing it–it made me feel pretty in a natural way, not screaming “Look at me, I’m wearing red lipstick!” This is perfect for those of us that are a bit intimidated by red lips–it’s a dip your toe into red that even scaredy cats can wear with ease… you’ll just look like you’ve been eating cherry popsicles all day!
Last, if you are a lip balm girl, you are going to be doing a happy dance! L’Occitane releasedDelicious Tinted Balms$24 in 4 shades plus a Multi-Balmthat can be used as a balm, primer or mask. They are housed in beautiful frosted glass jars that allow you to see the color.
These super moisturizing lip balms look like candy in their pots, but make no mistake, they are for the lips. The ultra creamy texture and lemony sunshine scent will have you reaching for them constantly. The barely-there colors are ideal for no-makeup carefree summer days.
Carrot Fizz is sheer peach, Pink Calisson is a petal pink, Gimme Mauve is pinky purple and Grenadine in Loveis a sheer red. All the shades are fabulous though I do find myself reaching for Carrot Fizz and Grenadine in Love the most. If I want a little more color from them, I use a lip brush rather than my fingers.
Bottom Line: Whether you’re just looking to keep your lips from chapping during the dry, hot summer, or you want a fruity, juicy, shiny pout in summery popsicle shades the L’Occitane Lip Collection has you covered. I highly recommend everything!
