Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée Autumn 2012 Cream Cheek Base Review

Hi everyone. I was planning to write about the Dior Golden Jungle collection for this post but I fell in love with the Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée Fall 2012 Cream Cheek Base in #101 Vermillion (I know, the name is so long) that I have to let it jump the chewylove blogpost queue.

Famous for their macarons as well as delectable cakes and pastries, Ladurée has since ventured into the cosmetics market with the launch of Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée in early 2012. The brand's products includes base makeup, cheek color, lip colour, eye shadows, brow palette, mascara and accessories (source).

I think that Ladurée cosmetics are only available in Japan at the moment but the internet tells me that Europe will get it in fall 2012 and US will eventually get it as well (source). My best friend got it for me when she went to Japan for holiday. If you are reading this post, I LOVE YOU!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR LOVELY GIFT.

Ok, enough of me talking. Now the product.
I am sure a lot of you already know that I have a weakness for pretty packaging. Look at this box, isn't it beautiful. If you think this is gorgeous, wait until you see the actual product.

This is officially the prettiest piece of makeup that I own. 

I have the Autumn 2012 "Symphonie d'Automne" limited edition cream cheek base in 101 Vermillion.

 Here's what the colour looks like. It gives a a very natural and pretty reddish flush.

First of all, the packaging of this product is absolutely gorgeous. Although it might not be very travel friendly since it's rather bulky, the elegant and feminine design is definitely appealing to the girly girl side of me. The packaging is made of plastic so it's very very light but the fine details give it a very luxurious touch.

The product did not fall short in the quality department. The texture feels like a light balm when it first touches the skin but when you blend out the product, it will dry and meld into the skin to give a very natural flush. I like to blend my blushes out into a natural flush but this product is definitely pigmented and if you want the colour to be more prominent, just don't blend it out so much. Being a cream product, it stayed on surprisingly well on my skin. I wore it for 7 hours (including a trip to the gym) and it only faded a little. The product has a very soft scent (I think it smells like rose water), which will not be detectable once you apply the product.

All in all, I am very in love with this product and I cannot wait to try out more of Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée makeup.
