Okay, so, I'm RIDICULOUSLY behind in posting my purchases within the last two months, but I was extremely busy during May and June. Also, I like to play with products for a month or two before posting anything about them.
Anyway, enough with the babble, on with the goodies!
Two months ago, Laudree was offering a free gift with any 5,000 yen purchase. Not a difficult amount to reach, since the most inexpensive beauty item is approximately 3,990 yen ($50.17).
The gift with purchase was this fan with the same charm that's attached on the rouge lipsticks.
I love the print and texture of Les Merveilleuses de Laduree's packaging.
Cream Cheek Base in 05 (4,410 yen).
The Cream Cheek Bases have a lovely, velvety smooth texture and apply wonderfully. Unfortunately, they don't perform well in extremely hot and humid temperatures. With the humidity levels we've been experiencing lately, these cheek bases are basically nonexistent after 30 minutes. I do like the Cream Cheek bases, but during summer, I'll be using them as a base under powder blushes or alone/or as a base during the cooler seasons.
Rouge 07 (4,410).
I REALLY love these Rouge lipsticks!! They're moisturizing, creamy, pigmented, glossy and I love the way they feel on my lips...Praise Him!!
From left to right: Rouge 07 and Cream Cheek Base 05.
Rouge 07: A bright mid-tone pink.
Cream Cheek Base 05: A vivid blue based medium pink.
Here's a simple look I did using both products:
