Les Merveilleuses Laduree Symphonic d' Automne Autumn Collection 2012


Here's the first of many Fall collections that I've purchased. I've had these items for over 2 months, and I'm in love with all of them...with the exception of one :(

 Eye Color Palette 001 ¥4,200 ($54.83), Eye Color Case ¥1,575 ($20.40).

I own four of the Eye Color Palettes, and I truly enjoy them. I only wish the shadows had some sort of divider.  
 Curling Mascara Base ¥3,360 ($43.86) and Natural Lash Mascara ¥3,990 ($52.09). 


I was disappointed with this Mascara Base. I found it clumped my lashes together, left them feeling stiff, and made the mascara application difficult. 

 Natural Lash Mascara 

As an overall mascara, the Natural Lash Mascara performed will. But, I found it works great in the smaller inner lashes, as well as the lower lashes.

 Eye Color Palette 001.

Color description from left to right

A shimmery rusty gold.

An iridescent gold shimmer. 

A pearlized ivory shimmer. 

A matte white.

A dark plum shimmer.

Cream Cheek Base 101: A coral-red.

Pressed Cheek Color 001: A blue-based bright pink.

Pressed Cheek Color 002: A guava-pink.

Pressed Cheek Color 003: A muted royal yellow.

Rouge 08, 09, 10, 11, 12.

Rouge 08: A muted pale cantaloupe. 

Rouge 09: A yellow-based medium pink.

Rouge 10: A dusty pinky-brown mauve.

Rouge 12: A bright tomato-red. 

 I don't remember when I got this gift with purchase, but I wanted to share this cute bag.

  5. All of your looks are so pretty! Too bad about the mascara, as for me, I never spend that much on a mascara simply because they go bad after only a few months.

    1. Thank you Cake-pie! Yeah, it is rather expensive for a mascara :(

  6. FIrstly, your new haircolour is fantastic and I adore the dark brunette on you. Has it got a lot lighter after a few washes?

    The blushes are so bright! I can't wait to play with mine. It always surprises me that as 'classic' as the Laduree packaging is the blushes can be SO neon.

    I want a yellow blush post! That's as yellow as the ADDICTION eye shadow. Haha.

    1. Thank you darling! and It's gotten a whole lot lighter!

      The blushes may look neon, but they give a gorgeous flush of color to the cheeks.

      Okay, yellow blush post coming soon :P

      Actually, 003 works amazingly over other blushes. It really transforms and enhances whatever blush you layer it over.

      Hmmmmm....I think I'll need to give 003 a try then. I need to experiment with their lippies too. They look like little wands. Maybe I can magic my mouth magnificent;P

      I'd definitely recommend 003, and the lippies are a magical wand of rouge goodness!!
