Hautelook Heads Up: Laura Geller
Just wanted to let you know that Laura Geller products are on sale on Hautelook today! Things tend to sell out quickly, so I wanted to hop on here and tell you about some of the things that I've tried and love. There are actually a lot of things on sale that I haven't used- but here are my recommendations. (All photos courtesy of hautelook.com)
This kit contains one of my favorite full coverage concealers- The Real Deal. Keep in mind they are giving you a mini size in this kit, but it'll last you a long time (a little bit of that concealer goes a very long way). I'm also a big fan of LG's blushes- this one is the Blush-n-Brighten in Berry. I should also point out that unless her blushes & shadows are labeled as "sugar free"- they do have a bit of shimmer/glow to them. I still find the colors to be very pigmented though. The Light Beams gloss in Passion Fruit wouldn't be my personal highlight of this kit, but it's still great and very shiny. This all comes in a little bag with an NYC taxi cab on it too :)
I have the Italian Marble lipstick in Berry Banana (the first one shown in the lineup)- and I love it! Very soft and moisturizing (truly feels like a lip balm), and the color is gorgeous. I'm thinking about getting this set because the other two shades look really nice also. Since these are marbled, no two are exactly alike... so you may get a lighter or deeper lipstick depending on how the shades were mixed, and it may change as you keep using it. I actually think that's pretty cool!
This is a classic Laura Geller must have product. Balance & Brighten is fantastic as a powder foundation- or you can use it over a liquid foundation to boost the coverage. It does a fantastic job of evening out the skintone, and contains swirls of various colors, including yellow- which is very corrective. I love this product (I wear Regular), and my mom loves it too! I can't vouch for the brush (I don't have it), but this price for the powder alone is awesome.
A few more notes... I do like LG's baked eyeshadows, but don't own any of the ones offered in this sale. They can be worn wet or dry, and unless they say "sugar free"- you can assume they have a healthy amount of shimmer. I think the Eye Rimz gift set looks like an especially good deal- those shades would make great liners or smokey shadows. I noticed the After Hours Eye Set contains At Long Lash Mascara... that is one of my LEAST favorite mascaras of all time. Goopy, thick, wet, and way too much formula comes out on the brush. Hard to use. The Spackle primer is good, but I didn't have incredible results in terms of the impact on my foundation's staying power. A few of the Air-Whipped Blush & Bronzers are for sale either alone or in kits- I have a full blog review of that product here, but in a nutshell, I'm not a big fan. It continues to have kind of a moist feel even after it's applied.
- Just shot a couple of videos. Productive day so far!
- Watched a LOT of basketball yesterday. I don't really get into it unless it's March Madness time.
- I'm am wearing the ultimate in springy tops right now- you'll see it in an upcoming video.
- Meanwhile- we have several inches of snow on the ground! Frankly, I don't really mind, but I know Tyler would like to be able to get out and golf at some point!
