It is that time of year where we start thinking about Christmas gifts for others or gifts to get ourselves glammed up and looking our best. The Total Package 6 piece collection from Laura Geller is perfect for both such occasions.
Featuring as a Todays Special Value on QVCUK on 4th November 2018 – this collection comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving. Included in this collection are the following products :
Baked Balance-N-Brighten Colour Correcting Foundation 9g –
The iconic, one stop shop to flawless skin, baked foundation from Laura Geller is, of course, included in this collection. Now, I know many people have a huge stock of this foundation, but for people purchasing for the first time, it is fantastic that they get to create their perfect canvas with this product.
Balance-N-Brighten Foundation is created from liquid pigments which are baked in Italy for 24 hours on terracotta tiles. This means, even dry skin can use this without it causing further dryness, caking or adding a cracked look to the skin. Regular readers of mine may know that I have incredibly dehydrated skin, caused by medication. Therefore my 43 year old skin has to be very, very careful what it wears. I do prefer a liquid foundation because of this, however I have been wearing Laura Geller B’n’B for many, many years without compromise.
For me though, making sure my skin is moisturised well and primed before application is a must. I swirl my brush into the marbled compact, picking up a little of each colour and buff it over my face. Instantly the light reflecting particle’s brighten my skin, the darker shades cover any blemishes and pigmentation and it colour corrects my skin whilst leaving a lovely, natural looking finish and even coverage . This foundation can be expertly applied by you in seconds! It is easily build-able and you can pick out certain colours from the pan to give more coverage over a blemish, or use over the eyes and create your own bespoke look. I wear shade Medium
Baked Blush-N-Brighten Rouge in Pink Buttercream 4.5g :
If you have never tried one of Laura’s Baked Blush products you will fall instantly in love. The colours are pure pigments of liquid that have been baked on terracotta tiles in Italy and infused with great skincare ingredients such as Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts. They will not dry out the skin or look flaky, but glide on effortlessly creating a buildable flush of beautiful colour. They are super long lasting too and can be easily used as eye shadows . Containing swirls of Pink, Fuschia and Bronze shades this blends together beautifully to give that perfect hit of a flush. Darker skin tones can easily build the shade for a more dramatic look, and paler tones can use a lighter hand for their skin tone. A very flattering shade that sits well on the apples of the cheeks, sweeping gently back towards the top of the ear.
Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla 1.8g :
French Vanilla from Laura Geller is an absolute iconic product and one that has been in my make up collection for over 12 years!! How has it been out that long? time flies! Anyway, it just goes to show how long that beautiful, sheer, light highlighter has been around. I use it as a under brow highlighter, inner corner highlight to make me look really awake and above my cheek bones but you can use it anywhere you would like your features to stand out, and make them more defined. A little dab will do you!
Baked Highlighter in Sunset Glow 1.5g:
How lucky are we to receive two highlighters in one collection! Especially if you love a glow like I do and who doesn’t! These versatile little compacts are super handy for travelling over the festive season and beyond and last an absolute age.
This highlighter is super pretty with a very light pop of Pinky Mauve that works incredibly well on the centre of the eyelid when creating a spotlight look. It also really highlight the cheekbones and cupids bow beautifully, feels creamy, buttery soft and is super flattering. Perfect for anyone looking for a natural glow.
Kajal Longwear Eyeliner in Twilight Kohl:
Beautifully complimenting this collection is this silky, soft and creamy Kajal Eyeliner. The warm Grey tone with hints of blue and sparkle applies so easily without needing any pressure, meaning it doesn’t drag the skin on the eyes.
It is easy to apply to the top or bottom lash line and works lovely over a false lash band to make the eyes look more defined. I usually use these as an all over eyeshadow as they are that creamy and long lasting. Love this shade for an evening look. Perfect
Colour Luster Lip Gloss in Rose Tourmaline:
Full of antioxidants and luscious oils to protect and hydrate the lips, this is skincare as well as lipgloss. This moisturises as well as gives the lips a lovely high shine glossy look, without any of that nasty tacky, sticky feeling. It applies precisely due to the rounded, soft doe foot applicator and the light pink hues with just a hint of grown up shimmer look very pretty.
Obviously on everyone’s lips the shade will look different, on me it looks more pink, but I really like it, it also looks great over my matte lipsticks too as I have played around with that. Lip gloss by nature does not last long, but its quick and easy to top it up during the day. If you love Honey Caramel you will also love this colour.
My Thoughts on this collection : This collection comes beautifully gift boxed making it a lovely gift as I mentioned previously. Containing products that are the perfect tops ups and additions to Laura Geller fans make up bags but also a great starter kit for anyone trying the brand for the first time. Suitable for all ages and skin types, the foundation comes in shades Porcelain, Fair, Light, Medium, Golden Medium, Tan and Deep it does have quite a good shade range and easily colour corrects. As someone that has been using this brand for almost twenty years, I really enjoy it and often give it as gifts too. Above I am wearing only the tsv (Medium) and Glamlash mascara and no airbrush or facetune.
This collection is available as a Todays Special Value on QVCUK for one day only whilst stocks last. The collection will be available HERE on 4th November 2018.
