Review: Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée

My Les Merveilleuses de Laduree was gifted to me by my lovely boyfriend, and it's something that makes me feel like a princess everytime I look at it. I've placed it next to my Guerlain Meteorites and Etude House Eintoinette Collection Blush, but I feel like a more appropriate place would be on a pedestal somewhere, far, far away from my clumsy hands.

Although the packaging was certainly beautiful and memorable, the blush itself left something to be desired. I found that although the color was a buildable beautiful soft pink, which translates to a natural, healthy flush, many applications were needed in order to get the color it self to show up. This may be due to the initial waxy layer on top of the petal, but it makes it rather hard to apply, especially since I didn't want to press the blush too hard. It' beautiful, but when you compare it to the price of the product, you can't help but expect more from it.

Although I wasn't exactly thrilled over the application of the product, I absolutely love it on my vanity. As many have said, it's more art than makeup, and having something this beautiful always starts my day off with a smile.

Thanks for joining me!

  1. Looks so cute! But so expensive. Hoping to save up money so I can try out some stuff from this brand!
