A Red Box Of Makeup...Les Merveilleuses Laduree Makeup Coffret


Dark, dank and dreary! That's what the weather has been like lately. But, I'm not complaining...well, maybe except for the dank part...F#$@ my hair! I'm not ready to let go of Winter yet, and I'm milking whatever I can of what's left of it.


Here's the look I wore on Friday using Les Merveilleuses Laduree's 2014 Makeup Coffret. You may be asking, "what came inside the Coffret?" Well, I'm glad you asked...


This cute, gemstone-printed pouch with a Laduree cameo zipper pull. I'm not ashamed to admit, I did a google search to find what the proper name was for the zipper-pulley-thing was, and now I'm better informed and wiser, thank you. 


Eye Color Duo in 101: A satin, nude-champagne and demi-matte, blackened midnight-blue color with blue shimmer.


Creamy Cheek pot in 104: A french rose pink. 


Glossy Rouge in 101: A soft, coral-pink.

As with the last look I posted, the photo of me looking down came out blurred.

I'm going to address my gripe with this Coffret first. I was really, really, REALLY excited about the Glossy Rouge, thinking it was going to be some kind of soft, cherry red, but, no, it's a soft, coral-pink. It's a beautiful lipstick, but I really wanted that soft, cherry red. 

The eye color duo has a silky soft texture and the cheek pot has a whipped, silicone consistency; both are lovely in quality and performance. 

Aside from my personal dissatisfaction with the shade of Glossy Rouge Shade, all three items are fantastic, and coordinate beautifully with one another.
