Les Merveilleuses Ladurée’s spring 2019 collection is the pastel-floral wonderland of your dreams
It goes without saying that the dawn of Crazy Rich Asians has brought about an awareness of Singapore on a global scale. Hawker culture, filial piety, as well as Singlish are sure to be brought up as awkward dinner party conversation should you find yourself on international waters. Wide-eyed queries about our supposedly lavish lifestyles are sure to follow. Yawn.
If there's one crucial point untouched in Jon M. Chu's modern-day Cinderella re-telling, it is the intricacies of Singapore's climate. Unbeknownst to non-locals, we, too, experience four seasons on the island: hot, hot AF, a literal pit of hellfire, and monsoon season.
As of February, we rest somewhere comfortably in between hot and hot AF while our cooler counterparts celebrate the imminent arrival of spring. And while we may be deprived of seasonal flower blooms and frolicking rabbits, that's not to say that we can't find our own ways to commemorate the changing of seasons.
Our prime pick has to be the Les Merveilleuses Ladurée, spring 2019 edition. Inspired by the beauty of spring as well as the enthralling aroma of flowers, their latest range comprises plentiful selections for both the face and body.
Divided into Spring Collection I and Spring Collection II, the former offers an illuminating face powder, a lip colour in 10 tantalising shades, a lip brush, and single pot eye colours in five varying hues. There's also the Eau De Toilette Merveilleuses to consider, an effervescent and refreshing scent taken after the iris flower. All of which comes in Ladurée‘s characteristically refined packaging, complemented with delicate blossoms and butterflies for the season.
Spring Collection II, on the other hand, is a smorgasbord of bath and body treats. This limited edition range comprises of a body lotion, body wash, mist, and hand treatment, all of which are scented with Heliotrope: a blend of florals and anise that was particularly popular in 18th-century France. How fitting.
