L’Occitane is killing it just now! They have some fantastic launches this year, and the new Lip Collection is one of them.
The packaging is bright, bold, sassy, yellow, and I love it. The products are simple, effective, and so great for summer.
There are Lipsticks, Lip Balms, Lip Scrubs, and a magic yellow Lip Perfector – one of those changing-colour products.
There are three Lip Scrubs (£14) – Marmalade Kiss, Raspberry Crush and Fabulous Fig. They all contain vitamin E, carrot, pomelo and pomegranate oils, and you apply them to dry lips, massage, then rinse off.
There’s a 3-in-1 Delicious Multi-Balm (£20) which can be used as a primer to prep the lips, as a balm to soften the lips any time of the day, or as a rich mask to pamper the lips overnight. It moisturises, protects and delivers long- lasting nourishment. It’s made with a blend of botanical oils bursting with beneficial properties – pomelo to soften, and carrot and pomegranate, rich in carotenoid and vitamin E.
The Fruity Lip Perfector (£20), which comes in a handy stick form, moisturises and adjusts to the pH of your lips to enhance their natural colour. Behind its sunny, bright yellow shade – which turns pink when it touches your lips – is an ultra-effective, 2-in-1 colour-revealing and plumping formula.
There are four Delicious Tinted Balms (£20) all with a super-sunny scent. I love the sunny orange Carrot Fizz, and the the hot coral Miss Grenadine, and there’s also the pretty Pink Calisson, and a soft purple, Gimme Mauve. They all deliver hydration to the lips.
Finally, the colour! Eight amazing shades of Fruity Lipstick (£18). Each of the lipsticks has a two-tone effect. The lightest shades are Nude Infusion, a subtle, natural beige, and Pink Biscotin, a luminous light pink.
The next level of colour comes in three shades – Red-y To Play, a lovely red, Provence Sunset, a natural shade that heightens the pink of your lips with a golden brown, and Gor-Juice Pomelo, a deep, bright, coral shade that is lovely.
The three deepest shades are Plum Plum Girl, a deep plum-red, Flamingo Kiss, a bright fuchsia pink, and Provence Calling, an out-there violet.
