Beauty land is awash with the news that French patisserie Ladurée, which has been putting the mmmmmmmmmm into macaroons since 1862, is all set to launch a makeup collection called Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée (The Wonders of Ladurée). The products will be crafted by Albion – the same company that makes cosmetics for Anna Sui and Paul & Joe – and looks very French, very fancy and oh-so-pretty that you (or at least me!) will have to have some, no matter what!
Here’s a sneak peek at the goodies on offer (alas! the makeup is not edible):
The Face Color Rose (available in three shades) is pressed into the shape of delicate rose petals and housed in a Fabergé egg-like case. Sighhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
The Cream Cheek Base is again very Fabergé-style… clean and elegant with a quirky twist!
My personal swoon-worthy favourite is the Pressed Cheek Colour, which comes in the form of a cameo blush. This is one of those products that you buy in multiples – a set to preserve and another set to actually use!
The range will launch in Japan this February before reaching Europe in fall 2012, followed by the USA and elsewhere in Asia. Since there is no way I am going to be able to wait to get my hands on it for so long, here’s to internet shopping!!!! (And if anyone is travelling to Japan in the meantime, please feel free to get me gifts!!!!)
