Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée

Ladurée, famous of their delicious macaron , had launched color cosmetics in Japan in February 2012 called Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée (or The Wonders of Ladurée, in English). Created by Albion, the collection centers on 20 different blush colors in the form of cameos. Also in the line are liquid foundation and lip color. I'm so interested of their Face Color Rose Ladurée which is like rose petals with color. These rose petals are actually paper with blush color coated over them with floral/powdery scented. You need to use a brush to swirl over the petals and apply on your cheeks. But I really feel that it really look so delicate and I think most girls will go crazy about it!

NARS Candles

NARS Candles were created to elevate the senses and instill a peaceful ambiance. Each possesses a uniquely delicious aromatic scent formulated to enhance the mood, inspire the senses and provoke individual memories. Encased in white, black or red matte glass with the NARS logo, each paraffin-free candle is composed of rich essential oils, allowing for an optimum burn time of 70 hours. 
The one I have is "Oran"( white ), A complex blend of tuberose and white gardenia blossoms, heightened by floral touches of violette, jasmine and heliotrope. Sweet balsamic undertones of styrax and resin help compliment and balance vibrant citrus, bergamot and grapefruit notes along with luscious leafy greens.

There's also 
Acapulco( black ) - A delicious top note of rich, velvety chocolate is combined with a delicate blend of whipped cream accord and coffee bean for intensity and depth, while the dry down captures the senses with a distinctive base of cocoa powder and creamy vanilla.

Bosphorus( white ) - Top notes of pure lilac blossoms and sweet essence of hyacinth are blended with middle notes of crushed green leaves, accents of currant, mandarin, and peony laced with raspberry and subtle aquatic notes.

Jaipur( red ) - Top notes of a teasingly sweet blend of citrus are complimented with hints of pomegranate and balanced by rich, exotic floral notes of rose, jasmine and geranium. Full-bodied base notes of amber and vanilla add warmth to the tantalizing scent for an overall sweet and seductive sensory experience.

Shangri-La( red ) - Fresh, clean top notes of bois de rose and mountain sage paired with warm, spicier notes of clove bud, nutmeg and basil leaves produced this enticingly spicy and exotic scent. The heart combines delicate notes of jasmine petals and black tea for a softly provocative touch.

Was doing a photo shoot with CLEO magazine yesterday using Maybelline Color Tatto 24HR. This Color Tatto 24 HR is made for women who live life to the fullest, squeezing every last drop out of the day and night. Redefining the term "long lasting", it really stays on for hours and stubbornly resist water and creasing. Which mean once applied, the color stays put!

This Color Tatto 24HR comes in color-loaded cream gel that glides on effortlessly and sets and clings like a second skin. Using a unique 'hot-pour' system, a combination of volatile fluids, waxes, a light weight gellant and duo of pearls and colourants is mixed, heated and poured at high temperature. During the cooling process, the volatiles evaporate, the end result is a smooth-as-silk cream gel impregnated with color as intense as ink! You can use it alone or even mix and match according to your own creation. Price at $15.90 but in the month of January only, it is on offer for just $13.90 each at Guardian, Sasa, Watsons, selected department stores, major supermarkets and hypermarts.
