One Fine Spring Day Look


Hey guys, how's your week going so dar? This is the look I wore yesterday, for swatches of the products, please click here.


Products used:
Face:
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab (Medium 1).
Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow Pencil in Seal Brown.
Les Merveilleuses Laduree Mini Face Color Trio 103:
The peachy-beige shade in the hollows of the cheeks and blended upward.
The neon hot pink on the apples of the cheeks.
The lavender-blue shade applied over the neon hot pink.
Eyes:
Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30.
Les Merveilleuses Laduree Creamy Eye Color 05 (all over the lid).
Les Merveilleuses Laduree Mini Face Color Trio 103 (the peachy-beige shade in the crease and inner corner).
Les Merveilleuses Laduree Pencil Eyeliner 101 (on the upper and lower lashline and waterline).
Chanel Inimitable Intense Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique Mascara in 10 Noir.
Lips:
Les Merveilleuses Laduree Lip Lacquer in 01.

After using Laduree's Creamy Eye Color for a while now, I have to say that the product didn't perform as I had hoped. If you have any dry flare ups on your lids, stay away from this product! It goes on patchy, has a mind of it's own, and only performs well when it wants to...GRRRR! Shame, I love the color, and when it works, it's really lovely, but once it's gone, I won't repurchase.

If you've tried the Creamy Eye Color, please let me know what you think :)

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  3. Oooooh, that's bad news on the creamy eye color :(
    Perhaps Laduree should spend more on product perfection than on the packaging?
    Their line is waaaay too expensive for one to excuse low grade products.
    Thanks to your swatches, I ordered the Addiction Mudd Club, Tuxedo and Sugar Rusk palettes btw:) Which ones did you end up getting?

    1. The creamy eye color's are such a temperamental product with a mind of its own! Shame because I really love the color, and whenever I get it to work, it's beautiful.

      Agreed in regards to the perfection of product over packaging. Laduree beauty is not for the faint of heart or pocket book, so, I except more from the line.

      I wish yo'd let me get these items for you. I hate the idea of you paying such exorbitant prices online.

      I got Soda Lunch, Mudd Club(of course), Sugar Rusk, and, I was going to get Tuxedo Moonh, and I hate myself for writing this, but I caved in to the "limited edition" sticker shock, and got Black or White. Yes Buggsie, I picked up my least favorite palette just because I can't stand the idea of not having it...help me!

      So, I paid 6,510 yen for that one gorgeous greenish-black shadow. Tuxedo Moon and Unrated are not limited edition, so I'll pick them up later...and by later, I mean next week :P

    2. I'm sure that the greenish-black shadow will have you looking even gorgeousaah so it's money well spent! I soooo hear you on the limited edition thing!! It pushes ALL my panic buttons!! It took ALL my resistance to not order Soda Lunch. I love the look of that palette but I know that those colors are not meant for me. If only I were about 10...or 20 years younger :(

    3. Thank you for the support Mrs.Bee ;)

      Why do we go into the frenzy once we see/hear those two damning words "LIMITED EDITION". The idea of something not being readily available gives me makeup anxiety.

      Have you received your palettes yet?

      And bit your tongue woman! There's not age limited to color, it's all about how you apply it ;)

  5. Hi I love your blog and you are so beautiful! I always wanted to try the Laduree Trio blushes but unable to get from Australia and it's ridiculously expensive on Ebay! Really envy you... I wish I'm living in Japan too! LOL...

  6. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both
    educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  7. Hey there are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and set
    up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
