European Beauty: Les Merveilleuses Ladurée


Ladurée, well known for their fashionable little macaron treats, has become a brand that embodies everything lovely, pretty and feminine. Their storefronts are beautifully decorated, their afternoon tea service is dreamy, and their macaron boxes are utterly adorable. If you ever want to live in a pretty Parisian fantasy, Ladurée is your place. So when I was in Paris a few weeks ago, I knew I would have to stop by the iconic Ladurée store on the Champs Elysées and pick up some macarons - and a little souvenir too.

Beside the obligatory box of macarons, I decided on a cute little keychain that, to be honest, I've been eyeing on their website for the last 5 years. They had some gorgeous candles and home fragrances too - it was a tough choice! I gleefully walked down the Champs Elysées with my prettily packaged little goodies in one of their signature mint green bags. It wasn't until a couple of days later during our time in Paris that I remembered that Ladurée also has a line of makeup...and what better place to track it down than in Paris!

So I did some cyber sleuthing and found that Ladurée's line of makeup, Les Merveilleuses Ladurée, is sold in the Sephora on the Champs Elysées, much to my delight. (Side note: the Sephora on the Champs Elysées is insanely INSANELY massive. It was Boxing Day packed in there on the middle of a Tuesday. Insane.) Anyways, I managed to track down the little section featuring Les Merveilleuses Ladurée and decided on the gorgeous cameo-shaped blush you'll see below. Isn't it stunning?? A lovely Parisian Sephora employee helped me choose a shade, a dusted it on my cheeks to try out. The colour was perfect! A nice flush of matte colour. The packaging is so sweet, just like everything else Ladurée creates. What I thought was really neat too is that blush refills can be purchased separately, so when you run out of product, you don't have to buy a whole new compact. Not to say this blush is cheap - this was a total splurge for me (and totally worth it!).

If you're hoping to snatch one up, you can check it out on Sephora's French site here, or take a peek on the Ladurée website














Happy Styling! xo
