Ladurée is one of France's most beloved pastry shops. With beautiful macaroons that come in myriad pastel colors (think pistachio green, cotton candy pink, violet, latte, and vanilla cream) and intricate pastries (Ladurée supplied all of the delicious cakes in Sofia Coppola's film Marie Antoinette), the store itself is just as stunning as its delicacies. In honor of Ladurée opening its first store in the U.S., we're highlighting our Top 3 pastel-inspired beauty products. Now all you need is a box of macaroons to nibble on!
This palette was one of makeup artist Gucci Westman's favorites during Fashion Week and is part of her collection for Revlon, The Expressionists. The quirky drawer reveals a deep plum lipstick that Gucci used as cream blush during New York Fashion Week.
Ladurée doesn't just make sweets—they also sell divine rose, violet, and almond waters that are perfect for splashing into the bath or using as a toner. too! The cute bottles (with macaroon-shaped tops!) look gorgeous in your bathroom too.
This gorgeous eye shadow palette contains the perfect shades for fall. The violet and silver hues are right on trend this season, and were seen at spring/summer 2012 shows such as Prabal Gurung and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
