Les Merveilleuses de Laduree

Thursday, January 5, 2012

Who likes Laduree? The prestigious french patisserie, will be launching their own cosmetic line. Laduree already has a beauty, candle and home fragrance collection. Has anyone tried it?

The cosmetic collection is called, Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée (or “The Wonders of Ladurée”). It will feature 20 different blush colors in the form of cameos, foundation and lip color. Can you imagine their lip color tasting like their goodies? YUM!

Ok, the "bad" news! It launches in Japan, February 2012. Do I have any Japanese friends? :) Europe, Fall 2012. THEN the United States (so I'm thinking Christmas).


What are your thoughts on a "pastry shop" delving into cosmetics? (source


I can't officially tell you what #1-4 is, because I don't read or speak Japanese! HELP! LOL :) (source)

The Dainty Doll's House said...

Love the packaging..so pretty!! I would sit them on a shelf and stare at them, haha! Could eat there all day, that's terrible, hahaha!! Yummy treats though :))) This post has made me want the cake in my kitchen, shame on you ;-) hahahah xoxox

CottonCandyINK said...

never heard of this company but I'm so loving the concept

Little Ms. Fun said...

I'm so excited that I won!! I've never won before :) I can't wait to try all it's coconut goodness and tell you all about it.

As for the bakery cosmetics, I love the idea! 1) Who doesn't like sweets? 2) French products are usually amazing. 3) I'm obsessed with cameos. I'm actually wearing a cameo right now.

Love the post girl!

aki! said...

Hmm. Food and cosmetics are so different. I love a good tasting lip balm... but I don't think I'd get it if all it was was yummy.

Why does Japan always get the pretty cosmetics first? I'm still waiting on Majolica Majorca, Anna Sui, etc.

Lindsay said...

Wow! I was skeptical at first and they look so beautiful! I love the macarons so I might just have to try the makeup too!

A BRIT GREEK said...

I'm surprised at the launch for Japan, and that Europe has to wait when it's a French brand... Nuts! But Je L'aime!

Chocolate, Cookies & Candies said...

The packaging looks amazing! Part of me is a little skeptical about a macaron patisserie dipping into the make up market but I can imagine the Japanese market will go nuts over them.

Nelah said...

They look so divine and luxurious Kim. Up until this day, I still haven't tried any macarons. Look so yummy!!! Have a great weekend.

Little Rus said...

That's so beautiful!!!! I think every woman would want a piece of this collection. :) x

BROKEN.WHIMSY said...

Woah, I think this is a completely new venture non? Ive never heard of a patiseerie company going into cosmetics.....but maybe NZ is THAT behind lol. Interesting but for some reason Im feeling that it seems wrong! I think its the chemicals incosmetics goes a bit against the natural quialities of baked goods lol.

prettymeggy said...

Cara said...

Anyone who can make such impeccable macarons must be able to make a sweet tasting lip gloss, right? This is exciting, I'm always ready to try new cosmetics!

Silvertigo said...

Those are so beautiful! xoxo

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

Too cute! The packaging is just lovely. I am really going to have to restrain myself when it hits the U.S hehe.

just tututiny said...

Not sure how the quality of the makeup will be but the packaging sure is pretty. Just leaving it on the nightstand will be a pretty picture ;)

Rhe Beep said...

So fun. I love the antique look. It's so pretty I don't think I could use it. I wouldn't want to ruin it's greatness.

miss b said...

I'm sure the make-up products will be as gorgeous and pretty as the macaroons (which I happened to be eating two days ago!) The pastel colours will be perfect for the new Spring trends.

Kassi said...

I LOVE IT! Seriously, it looks like fancy vintage packaging, which is amazing! I think our cosmetic packaging is sadly un-glamorous these days.

Marionberry Style said...

Hmm, it looks beautiful however the idea of a pastry company producing cosmetics is a little strange to me. But I suppose they already have branched out with various lines...so they must know what they're doing!
Lovely photos and I can't wait to see what the reviews are :-)

I like the idea of a pastry shop delving into cosmetics. Maybe they might make their products 'sweet' smelling, hehehe :)! the products themselves look really cute though. xo

OMG KIm,

Hello! Im sorry that I have been missing you. Very late happy new year to you. My my, this is a very nice fresh looking blog. Im glad to know you have started another blog (out width blogspot.com) This is a very sweet & refreshing page blog. Did you design it yourself? It is very nice indeed.

So sorry I havent been around much. Have been away on vacation. My parents came over for a holiday very recently and have been spending my time completely OFF-LINE, except work emails!!

I hope you had a good time with your family.

p/s: Laduree are certainly prestigious but Im sure their cosmetic line aren't cheap either.

Anyway, hope to catch up with you soon.

Peh Sun

Cosmetic line? I think they their packaging would be as delicious as their macarons.lol

Joey said...

I love Laduree!! Omg I always feel so posh when ever I bite into their macarons. The price is a bit steep for the student budget, though.

The cosmetics looks soooo pretty, though I'm not big on it. Still, I'd love to have a nosey around.

Alex Elizabeth said...

My Japanese is so rusty, but...

#1 is cheek cream base (whatever that is).

#2 is rose colored rice powder, I believe. The description is kind of vague. I think they're hand made and there are three colors. I think it's ¥7,350 for all three, which isn't so bad.

#3 is a bunch of cheek and foundation compacts, and there are hand mirrors in the center? I've never understood Japanese beauty ads all that well.

#4 are cheek color compacts.

My impression is that for most of the products, packaging and refills are sold separately.

Hope that helps! Honestly, I don't really know about that orange blush...

Jacqueline said...

I love macarons, so hopefully I will love this line when it comes out!
