Several months back, the world renowned French Patisserie launched their exclusive line of cosmetics in Japan. Having been such a huge fan of their macaroons, I knew I had to get my hands on their cosmetics. Being a sucker for anything "Limited Edition" or "Exclusive", I got my sister to grab an item for me from the range while she was in Tokyo.
Having only seen pictures online, I had no idea about the quality of the cosmetics. Thus, I decided to go with a safe choice - i.e. nothing for the complexion like foundation or concealer. I decided to go for blush.
Laduree had 2 different types of blushes - Petal blush and regular powder blush. Undoubtedly, I went for the Petal blush because it was unique and I was curious as to what it was like. The pictures on the website were tiny but I went with it anyway.
There were 3 different color choices for the petal blush. I had initially wanted no.1 but it was sold out and had to settle for color no.2. It is a peachy pink shade and smells so delicious - like roses. Apparently, the blush was sold separately from it's container, much like a refill.
The design of the line resembles the Paul & Joe range of cosmetics. Perhaps it was designed this way due to the launch in the Japanese market. I am seriously not complaining because I love the design! The Petal Blush container was made of a solid thick frosted plastic, embellished with finely crafted gold trimmings and a medallion which carries the face of a lady (much like Lady Antoinette).
