“The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express”
L’Occitane is one of my favourite brands. I’m quite a fan of their skincare products and when I saw that they were selling eyeshadow, I had to get one for myself. What first attracted me to it was the packaging. I have to honestly say that the eyeshadow container is very beautiful. I love how it’s light and compact sized and includes a mirror in the container. I think it’s really useful as it allows for me to put or touch up my makeup anywhere without ever needing to bring an additional mirror with me. L’Occitane is a French brand that is very well known for their skincare, therefore them selling makeup was quite unexpected for me.
For those of you who love smokey eyes, this is perfect for you! I think the choice of black and white is simple yet very classy. It has a slight minimalistic feel. The eyeshadow feels very smooth to apply onto the eyelids, furthermore as I glide it onto my eyes, the colours don’t create a muddied field look. The smoky eyes created definitely has a more airy lighter feel and is not as saturated as the normal smoky eyes. Unlike quite a lot of eyeshadow, it’s not greasy at all. This simple colour combination looks amazing on and off the skin.
L’Occitane’s eyeshadow was able to last the whole day without retouching. However, if you apply only a light coating then perhaps halfway throughout the day it would be best for you to reapply the eyeshadow to ensure the best look.
The eyeshadow was certainly easy to apply. However, for those of you who prefer a strong concrete smoky eyes, this eyeshadow requires one to apply a few layers before achieving the strong smoky eyes. However, if a light and airy smoky eyes are your ideals than L’Occitane’s Pivoine Flora Duo Blanche Etoile eyeshadow is perfect for you.
