Roses done right: Laura Mercier

Laura Mercier stealthily put this lovely little highlighter on the table for the 2011 holiday season.  Now we all know my feelings on rose patterns in makeup design, and I do find it strange to do flowers for a winter release rather than spring, but this time I think the roses are executed beautifully. 




With flash:


They almost look like they're sprouting from the palette itself, and they're not "traditional" roses - these look more like big ruffly garden roses (of which I am a huge fan).  Between the soft rose-gold hue and the slight 3D effect, Rose Rendezvous presents a pretty new twist on floral makeup design.  What do you think?
