Bonjour Mes Petits! Comment vas-tu aujourd’hui? How’s my high school French? Bad I suspect! Speaking of French shall we chat French desserts? For example, the quintessential French dessert, macarons which are tasty little piece of heaven.
Macarons are a weird animal because somehow, someway they made their way from simply being a dessert to gaining a cult following that extends to housewares, stationary, accessories, and of course, makeup. Over the years, I’ve reviewed and features quite a few macaron themed makeup and beauty like It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm, Secret Macaroon Delight Deodorant (yes, I realize the spelling is wrong but that’s how Secret spells it), My Beauty Diary Earl Grey Tea & Macaron Facial Sheet Mask, and many others. Macarons just have that whimsical cuteness that not only makes them a tasty treat but a very cute accessory.
Hell, Ladurée even has their very own makeup collection! Needless to say macarons are a big business.
Now depending where you buy macarons they can be expensive or cheap. Oddly enough ones I’ve purchased in France are a few bucks cheaper than the ones you can purchase right here in Manhattan.
But the ones from Lancome are by far the most expensive of all 🙂
