Laura Geller | Blush-n-Brighten blusher and Baked Marble Eyeshadow

So following on from my little make up haul here, a good few of you mentioned that you'd be interested in seeing reviews of the Laura Geller products.
Your wish is my command!
L-R: Laura Geller Baked Marble eyeshadow in Moonstone/Blue Heaven, and Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Berry
I love the packaging of these products, namely the little plastic window that allows you a cheeky peek into the pan. How enticing...particularly when the products look so beautiful in the pan! The pots are really sturdy and I love the globular shape of the eyeshadow. The mirrors are also really quite generously sized.
So let's start off with the eyeshadows. In the pan, they have a lovely swirl of silver throughout, which gives the eyeshadows their shimmer applied to the skin.
They have great pigmentation and a really luxurious, silky smooth texture.

Unfortunately the above swatches don't do the shades much justice, but they are actually really lovely bright shades, particularly the blue which is a really vibrant colour. The eyeshadows last well and have minimal fallout. Overall a lovely little pallette.
Laura Geller Baked Marble Eyeshadow in Moonstone/Blue Heaven can be bought on the Laura Geller website for around £17 here
Next up is the Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten blusher in Berry.

Again, this looks absolutely stunning in the pan, although I was quite worried about the amount of shimmer in the powder! I had mental images of me looking like something out of Twilight, with cheeks so shiny you could use them as a mirror.

However the shimmer is actually really lovely and subtle. I am usually a lover of matte colour on my cheeks, but I actually can imagine myself wearing this quite a lot during the summer months, as it makes your skin look lovely and healthy.
This particular shade is quite dark and probably best suited to olive toned skin, but again it lasted me the whole day with no problems. It definitely needs to be applied in light layers as it builds up really quickly (as I found on my first attempt when I was in a rush for work).
Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten blusher in Berry can be bought here for around £19.50.
Have you tried any Laura Geller products?
Do you think they're worth their price tags?
Hope you've all had a good weekend. Last night I went to a 21st which was a fancy dress dressed as Lara Croft! My mum and I had spent ages making gun holsters to go round my legs and getting the outfit together but unfortunately a handful of people were asking me why I was dressed as Rambo.
So as you can probably imagine I wasn't very enthralled and kept going back to the bar for more G&T's to take me past the point of caring. It worked, trust me!
I spent this morning nursing myself back to health with a bacon and egg butty and a few brews. Good as new now! I also have this week off uni and placement so that I can tackle the stack of work that I keep adding to at my desk. Wish me luck!
Thanks for reading,

  1. I really like how these look! I'd definitely have to try them before spending the money because I can be quite picky with eyeshadow! The blusher looks nice though :)



    1. They are really good quality but yeah I'd definitely at least swatch them first! xo

  2. That blush looks absolutely gorgeous, I love how it is marbled! I'll have to check it out next time I see it in a store. Thanks for the reviews :)

    1. I love marbled products they just look so much more luxurious! :) xo

  3. these look awesome!


  4. I got both of these products in a set from QVC last year but neither or them really suited me so I passed them on to a friend. Wish I'd kept the blush now though as I'm more confident to wear deeper shades and think I'd use it lol.

    1. Aw what a shame! I've also learnt the hard way not to give stuff away that I don't initially get on with, I ALWAYS regret it! Haha xx
