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.
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?
