There’s something about the phrase “limited edition” that makes everyone excited and frustrated at the same time. It is usually a product produced in limited quantity, packaged or marketed in a way that is extremely hard to resist buying one. Les Merveilleuses Ladurée, the cosmetics line of the legendary French patisserie is well known for their exquisite, pastel packaging targeted at the dainty ladies. To add on to our uncontrollable desire to buy all these pretty things, they have launched limited edition items and colours that are available for a short time only. Collect them now or regret later:
Les Merveilleuses Ladurée Spring Collection 2016 (launched on 29/1)
Could you tell from the pictures what this set of beautiful rose petals serve as?
Who could have guessed these beautiful petals are meant for your glorious cheeks? Filled with delicate and realistic rose petals in a beautiful pot, the Face Colour Rose Ladurée is one of the prettiest blusher I’ve ever seen. This is definitely going onto my wish list instead of to-buy list, unless I can part with ¥10,000 for a blusher (before tax, approx SGD $120, price inclusive of pot).
As if they heard my grumbles, Les Merveilleuses Ladurée launched a mini version of this blusher this Spring, with similar gorgeous flower petals. Though the petals are smaller in size and thinner than the signature, the Face Colour Rose Ladurée Mini comes in a cylinder box with choice of 2 gorgeous print. Without the pot, this mini version comes with a more affordable price tag of 3,200 Yen (approx SGD $40 before tax).
Here’s a closeup of the real thing which arrived at our office from Japan:
@lm_laduree rose face colour has finally arrived! Amazed by how delicate these rose petals can serve as a blusher, I just had to show you a video. Comes with a pretty pink cylinder box as captured at the back. The petals smell of baby powder! #ladureemakeup #makeupjunkie #cosmetics #makeup #rosepetals #blusher #iveairfroved
