I've always wanted to try Laduree's petal blushes; it's basically a vintage- looking tub filled with artificial Rose petals that carried the blush. I finally got to try it at a Laduree makeup counter in Japan, but was sadly underwhelmed. No doubt, it was luxurious- looking and nice to look at, but it takes a lot of effort to pick up the product from the rose petals. At P7k+, I would expect that the product, more than looking nice, will deliver in all ways.
So I picked up the pressed cheek color instead. Not as fancy as the petals blush, but my priority was a product that will work.
Les Merveilleuses Cheek Color is a pretty blush that yields a soft matte finish!
LADUREE LES MERVEILLEUSES CHEEK COLOR IN 09 IN DETAIL
This blush comes in refill form and is housed in a special compact. Shade range features 23 shades in a matte finish.
The compact is pretty and conveniently features a compact blush brush that's soft, gentle on the skin, and picks up the right amount of color. The compact is lightweight and decently sized that it won't take up too much space in your makeup kit.

If you want a wide range of blushes in a matte finish, you should look into this collection. I also noticed that the collection features pretty bright and unique, vintage colors such as yellow-orange and bright orange; they added to the overall vintage Parisienne theme of the products.
09 is a brick rose shade. Finish is matte, texture is smooth, soft, and buttery, and packs medium to heavy coverage. My only problem with the blush it it's not pressed very well onto the pan; it fell once from a chair level height and the bottom portion of the blush chipped off!
LES MERVEILLEUSES LADUREE CHEEK COLOR IN 09 IN ACTION
This blush yields a soft matte finish; pretty natural- looking for a pigmented matte blush and that's what I love about it. Staying power is very decent too.
If you have the money or you don't mind spending on pretty packaging, I suggest you get this because it's pretty and product delivers too. To be honest, I won't say go grab this one right away because even if it's a good blush, there are other matte blushes that can deliver at an affordable price.
