A Peony For Your Thoughts-------
Since launching its peony-inspired debut color collection last spring, L’Occitane has been steadily building its makeup junkie fan base. Fall’s limited-edition, orange-blossom scented Chérie range certainly helped matters—and its latest release is poised to do the same. The new, limited-edition Pivoine Flora line is inspired by the Mediterranean and features the region’s warm color palette. Enriched with skin-softening peony extracts, the collection includes two different eye shadow duos, an eye shadow quad, a face powder, four new lipsticks, and four new lip shines. Our favorite new arrival is the Facecolor Cream Duo, which features a double-sided pan of blush and highlighter, with three different super-blendable shades (we like Arabesque Apricot best). For the record, the largest bouquets of peonies that we’ve ever seen were being hand-delivered to celebrities on La Croisette in Cannes, and while we never received our own bunch (what gives?), the soft scent and gorgeous textures of these products hint at what it must be like to get the star treatment.
