|Petals Gone Wild|
Ed. Note: My darling Marsi is teasing us today. Look at all these delectable delicacies, delicious in every sense of the word. . . but chances are we’re in the wrong geographic marketplace. For the moment she offers us eye candy. Perhaps fulfillment is merely a question of time — and patience.
Leave it to French macaron godLadurée…
…to make something as unabashedly womanly and feminine as cosmetics and push it, all boomps-a-daisy,straight over the top and deep into Marie-Antoinette territory.
Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée(The Wonders of Ladurée) is Ladurée’s new cosmetics line, in collaboration with Japanese cosmetics company Albion.
… with “Japanese” being the operative word here, because unfortunately, unless you live in the Land of the Rising Sun, you’re not likely to get your hands on these beauties for a while. The line is exclusive to Japan… for now.
And that, mes amies, is a shame, because will you just look at these pieces? Can’t you just picture a collection of these gorgeous little keepsakes embellishing your vanity?
