In addition to the rose-patterned offerings by Prescriptives and MAC this spring, the Body Shop has hopped on this floral bandwagon and came out with its own rose collection. Here are the blushes and a lipstick (there were 3 lipsticks total, and all had a light rose scent.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: while I'm always happy to see designs on makeup (I do think they deserve a museum, after all), I'm getting a bit tired of roses. Especially for spring - with all the lovely flowers available during the season, I think companies could definitely come up with something besides roses. How about a peony or tulip-inspired collection? Oh well. To liven things up a bit I've decided to present a little dose of art featuring roses.
Salvador Dalí's Meditative Rose (1958):
Cy Twombly's The Rose ("IV" of four paintings, 2008):
And here they are installed at the Gagosian Gallery:
Let's hope we see a different floral motif next spring!
