My Review: Laura Geller’s Eye Spackle

laura_geller_eye_spackle.jpg

I bought this without reading any of the reviews online.  I was picking up some eyeshadow, and I had run out of my primer.  I picked this up, and was eager to try it!  I have to use primer under my shadow. If I don’t – it wears off by the end of the day!  After I bought this product, I went online and read the reviews on Sephora, and a lot of them were negative! Luckily I found that I really like this product.  It is very white – and some people don’t like that.  It doesn’t matter to me, because I’m putting eyeshadow on top of it anyway.  It holds the shadow in place excellently – and your makeup stays fresh all day!

Laura Geller’s Eye Spackle is a creamy, weightless, light-colored eyeshadow prep.

Makes your eye color glide on smoothly, look vibrant, last longer, and stay truer – it’s the perfect undercoat for powder shadows.

My Review: Baked Marble Eyeshadow

I recently tried this eyeshadow, and I totally love it!  The marble of colors is so beautiful – it is unlike any ordinary eyeshadow.  There is such depth in the color, it is gorgeous!

Baked Marble Eyeshadow by Laura Geller is baked powders for the eyes that feature multiple infusions of color.

The shadow can be used by swiping the brush all over the entire compact and stroking over the eyelid. Or, you can identify different shades and tones within the palette and apply them individually, use darker tones in the crease and at outer corners, brighter ones to highlight.

All of these gorgeous combinations are designed to use wet or dry, and the deeper tones work beautifully as an eyeliner.

GET THE LOOK: “I wanted the makeup to reflect Leighton’s beautiful and effortless dress,” says makeup artist Christopher Colbeck, who created this neutral-toned look on Leighton Meester. “We decided to keep the colors very soft and subtle with notes of cooler tones.”

INSIDER TRICK: Colbeck kept to the following neutral palette of products: Lancome tinted moisturizer, Chanel bronzing powder, golden sand Dior eyeshadow and icy beige M.A.C lipstick. He finished the look “with a light dusting of pearly white shimmer powder on the cheeks, eyelids, shoulders and legs to complement the cooler tones of the look.”

I love that Dior palette! Okay, I love any Dior palette.  I wish I had money, I’d buy this right now!

Becoming a Blue Eyed Beauty!

Blue eye makeup is IN and not in a Marcia Brady way. Check out the latest blue beauties along with expert techniques on how to apply BOLD BLUE color in a feminine, fashionable way…

“Blue can be gorgeous or a little 70′s prom, so it must be dealt with cautiously,” remarks Too Faced Founder and Creator, Jerrod Blandino. “Brown eyes tend to look better in brighter hues like teal, peacock, or turquoise. Green eyes look great in a plumy or lavender based blue, (think iris or periwinkle), and naturally Blue eyes look best in navy or smoky cobalt.”
