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 🙂
Lancome Le Teint Macaron Blush & Blender Quartet is a new Spring 2018 quad of adorable Whipped Cream Blushes. Each blush comes housed in a macaron shaped compact that houses a creamy blush which gives cheeks and face a hint of color for a just flushed finish. The set includes a rose and coral shade along with a pistachio and raspberry blending shade.
Now for the price.
This set is a whopping $75 bucks. Seriously though, this must be the most expensive makeup I’ve ever seen from Lancome. Ouch. There are two other Le Teint Macaron Sets each of which includes one blush and one blender shade for $40 which is more of an affordable option.
I have actually considered purchasing it because I’m a sucker for cute makeup! But I have this funny feeling they’ll be sheer and uneventful.
None the less there’s no denying the Lancome Le Teint Macaron Blush & Blender Quartet and the entire Lancome Spring 2018 Collection is cute as pie or in this case as cute as a macaron!
