Think spring flowers and peonies usually come to mind. Named after Paeion, the physician of the gods, peonies bloom in late spring and produce large fragrant flowers.
L’Occitane, the French beauty brand, is adding a flower-inspired makeup line to its range of skin and body care products. The peony-inspired collection for spring 2010 includes lip, eye, and face products as well as makeup accessories.
Based on specific types of peonies, the Peony Make-up Collection features spring shades like the Valse de Vienne Face Colour Powder, a pale pink color with a satin sheen.
The collection contains over 20 items with prices ranging from $12 for a natural wood eyeliner brush to $35 for healthy glow sun face powder. Unique items include the Lip and Cheek Tinted Water that creates a natural burst of color and the Illuminating Powder that brightens the face with a subtle iridescence.
