Love this lipsticks, but this color was much fuller and darker than I expected. Lovely berry color, like a dark berry on me. Some sparkle, maybe closer to burgundy on me. Im an NC25 dark medium blonde hair, fair complexion.
I would recommend this for olive complexion with dark hair. Striking color!

This is a great color - on me it seems a brighter pinkier version of my own lip color. The texture is nice - not too shiny and goopy like a gloss but definitely has a gloss to it. It doesn't dry my lips. The packaging feels good & substantial - not cheapy. The scent is a downside - very reminiscent of a fruity Bonne Belle Lipsmacker from back in my middle school days. The only other downside for me is the shimmer stays behind as it wears off and leaves little specks of tiny glitter on my lips. I think I would buy it again - maybe try another color. The price is high but I think all-in-all worth it.

The color is gorgeous and the formula is creamy and moist - what's not to love? (except for the price of course) This does have the tiniest bit of orange to it which I can't stand but other than that, it's a lovely hard-to-describe color that I think would look great on all skintones. Maybe it's a rosy plummy deep pink. Something like that. It doesn't have great lasting power but it's a stickgloss so I didn't expect much in that department. It is very flattering and a deeper, shinier MLBB so I will repurchase.

I bought this and loved it - the fantastic formula which is so comforting and still provides a great deal of colour. To me Peony is MLBB, a surprisingly warm medium pinkish tone. Then I repurchased - and the fragrance has been altered and is now a sickening fruity stink. Had the fragrance not been changed the overall rating would have been a 5 and I would have repurchased - again... Unless that is changed I will not repurchase.

When I first looked at the color in the tube, I thought that this would be a brownish/mauve shade but when I applied it, it turned out to be a gorgeous pink-mauve. This has become my go-to lipstick. as my DH and the (gruff) guys I work with mentioned that I look "great" when I wear it. In fact, one of my co-workers thought that I was going on an interview the first time I wore it to work.
...but I digress. This is a lovely shade, as I mentioned. It's not too pink, it's not too mauve. It has just the right amount of frost to make it interesting (matte shades don't work for me) but not enough to be OTT or emphasize my wintery flaky lips.
It doesn't feel like a gloss per se, but it does feel nice and smooth on the lips and doesn't dry out my lips. Its lasting power isn't amazing (I can go about 2 hours between touchups), but as it wears it leaves a pretty rosy color on my lips. It doesn't feel yucky as it wears, either, which is a big plus--I hate how some lipsticks get nasty after an hour or so.
This is a winner. I'm tempted to try other Stickglosses now, but I doubt I'll love any other color as much as I love Peony.

I stumbled on this lippie on a Sephora trip and it may just be my HG. I have fair skin and this color looks wonderful. I like the texture, it doesn't dry out my lips, but isn't too glossy for work, it lasts fairly well, no funky taste and brightens my whole face.
The color is kind of a mauvey, shimmer, neutral but not muddy at all!
I will repurchase and am in love with peony!

Laura Mercier's Peony lipstick is a wonderful enriched creamy stickgloss that lasts through my morning coffee hour at work right until lunch time! Looks lovely in its pinky mauve state! I would return to LM's lipsticks. I think they have a lasting quality that beats MAC lipsticks. And I absolutely love the variations of MAC's lipsticks along with the lustreglasses. Try it.

I love LM's Stickglosses, and Peony is no exception. I RIS from a lovely swapper (waves, Pam!) and so am getting to try before I buy. This is a complex color--cool, deep pink/rose with some plum/mauve and bronze tones--that is darker than my pigmented lips, but not so dark that it's aging or makes my lips look tiny. It is a bit less sheer and a bit more shimmery than other Stickglosses (like Rosewater or Purple Haze), but I find that those qualities give it a bit more polished finish, and it wears a bit longer, leaves a bit of a stain as it wears off, and doesn't require reapplication as often. The shimmer is a tiny bit gritty (minus one lipstick for that), but I don't find this shade less moisturizing than any of the other Stickglosses. Another winner from LM!

Peony is a rosey plum on my lightly pigmented lips. I think it wears well and is a go to color. Surprisingly, it's not very hydrating and can actually be a little drying. It's expensive, but the color keeps me coming back.

I bought this while on a mission to find the closest match to a much loved and discontinued Chanel Flamingo Glace lipstick. I had a swatch of the chanel on my hand and went around Sephora trying to match it. This was the closest match and it's really nice. I took off one point because really, the tube is small. I'm not sure why. Just make a regular sized lipstick tube please. This is a pretty cool mauve / pink / rose with a hint of shimmer lipstick. It's very flattering on my fair skin and gives a nice polished look without looking overdone. It is almost a neutral too as it's not so outrageous of a color.

I'm not sure whether I bought an 'off' product, but after a few days of using this, I developed tiny little bumps on my lips...never happened to me before! Otherwise thought it was a moisturising product with a nice bit of color. However due to my reaction, I won't repurchase.

I think I tried on ALL of the lipsticks at Sephora today, and came home with LM Peony Stickgloss. I'm NC25 with dark hair and hazel eyes, and it's very, very tricky to find a COOL rosy lipstick. So many of them are warm which looks garish on me! This one is a teeny bit frosty, which isn't great for me, but the color is lovely. The LM website calls it "deep aubergine plum" which is NOT an accurate description. I'd call it cool rosy plummy pink with shimmer. Great for summer.

I disagree with the reviewer below because Viva Glam VI and Peony are not the same colour. Viva Glam VI is more reddish brown and Peony is more mauvey. They both are good in their own way. I love them both. Both of them have great texture and colour! It's a matter of preference for each individual. Also, I do like the Stickgloss LM packaging because it's much smaller and not bulky at all (note however that even though the packaging is small, the quantity of the product is the same amount as the other lipsticks in the LM line). This being said, I won't repurchase because this colour is too dark for my skintone. Its alright for night time I guess but its just a preference that I don't like wearing dark lipsticks. For those who like dark colours and mauves I would highly recommend it.

I bought this, tried it on, and returned it.
The good: nice balmy texture, rose/brown shade that is flattering
The bad: smells bad, too frosty
My MAC Viva La Glam VI is about the same color but is less frosty. It's more of a lipstick but I definately prefer it to this.
Also the photo someone uploaded does not accurately represent the color of the product. It is not a light as pictured.

I love this color. It seems to go with everything and can change hues depending on what lip liner I use. My only complaint is that I wish it lasted longer. It feels great on, but I need to reapply often.

I love the new stick glosses from Laura Mercier - they are smooth and moisturizing with sheer even color (the darker shades leave a nice tint behind as they fade down), and they don't have any strange scent or flavor. "Peony" is the third stick gloss I've purchased --- it's a hard to describe color...a blend of rose, plum, and bronze tones. It has a frosted finish so it feels a bit gritty on the lips from the shimmer particles. I'm not that big on shimmer in lipsticks, but the color of this is so pretty I'm willing to disregard the glitter :D

Never try new stuff under artificial creepy light or you may hate it! This is what happened to me with Peony, i was really disappointed; then i gave it a second try, this time under day light and dang! Lovely deep rose/plummy shimmering l/s. The texture is heavier than the Brown Sugar's, but the moisturizing effect is the same. This is very similar to Guerlain Rose Strass but the shade of rose is deeper. I'm really loving these Stickglosses and want to try more shades.

Gorgeous plummy, pinky rose--what a beautiful shade! I love it on my medium pigmented lips. This one will be gorgeous for spring and all year 'round. I can't rave enough about this fantastic product. Part balm, part gloss, part lipstick--what an idea! You gotta love the mad makeup scientists for all the goodies they come up with for all of us. Respectfully submitted, colormepink

Hmmm. Hmmmm! I like this lipstick, but in terms of the color - just barely. It's almost too brown/dark/deep, but it's okay. (I am a LLL with yellow undertones but lavender-pink pigmented lips.) It's a complex purply-plummy-shimmery-rosy-browny color. I bought Purple Haze too and think I will try putting Peony on the bottom lip, Purple Haze on the top lip, and seeing what happens. (See my Purple Haze review.) By the way, this color is almost exactly like Prescriptive's Colorscope lip color Violet Rock Star, but I like Violet Rock Star better and don't feel as though it goes over the darkness line like this Peony does.
I haven't seen it on myself in daylight yet, so might revise.....

Argh. I really love LM Stick Glosses, but this one is more like a lipstick. It is not as glossy or sheer as Black Orchid or Brown Sugar. Beautiful color, not too harsh for PPP's like me, but I wish it was less of a lipstick.
