Everyone knows I am crazy when it comes to Jill Stuart, I dun really used it but yet I spend a lot of it because it has nice packaging and it smells nice. It also like to come out with limited edition to tempt me to buy them. However, I was browsing online as usual, something caught my eyes!!
Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée cosmetic looks so pretty. They are not those cute or glamorous type of beauty. One look it reminded me or noble and royal which is supposed to be as Merveilleuses is a name given to the most prominent leaders of female fashion which is also their image of the brand. It portray an image that other than the general beauty that everyone is doing, the most important is to find your own unique beauty. They hope that by using Les Merveilleuses de Laduree to find the unique beauty in you.
I guess there is a lot of people who know what is Laduree, they make fantastic Macaroons. Ladurée is a luxury bakery brand founded in 1862 by Louis Ernest Ladurée, a french miller from the southwest of France. The brand is known as the inventor of the double-decker macaron known all over the world.
It has a name of “Best Macaroons in the world”
It was quite a shocking news for a pastry company to also join to competitive cosmetic line. It is a colarbortion with Albion and Ladurée. Albion made other brands like Anna Sui, Jill Stuart and Paul and Joe too. It was first launch in Japan, Tokyo early this year. It will be launching in Europe this autumn and later in US and the rest of Asia.

Understand why it mesmerized me? First is their flower pedal blusher, it reminded me of the ancient type of makeup where woman have to wet their lips and apply the lip colouring paper by putting it in between.
I bought 4 pedal from their 01 and 02 blusher. I think it cost around S$11/pedal with shipping. It has a nice smell too. But its price is way more expensive than Jill Stuart. I guess that will stop me from wanting it as Jill Stuart is still my favourite. I feel that Jill Stuart is for princess and Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée is for queen or diva.
Below are the Summer and Fall released respectively.
