Laura Geller Profile

Laura Geller is a cosmetic brand (founded by makeup artist Laura Geller) that offers gorgeous beauty products including their popular baked cosmetics. I have been a long-time fan of Laura Geller highlighters and regularly wear Blush-N-Brighten in Como (you may have noticed in some of my past looks/tutorials). 

For the holidays, Laura Geller has released this adorable set of "baked stackable macaroons" which consists of 9 baked face and eye products--3 compacts per product type organized into 3 macaroon boxes. Macaroons are amazing, but macaroons plus makeup? Heaven! And since they come in mini boxes, you could always split these up between several people!

On the Face

Laura Geller's baked face products are super finely milled. These are shimmery, so what I typically do is layer a matte color underneath (cream or powder) and then put a shimmery, complementary cover on top to create a glow from within. I think it's important to experiment with these as I know some prefer not to use shimmery blushes, but they can be gorgeous when applied well. Like all of Laura Geller's baked product these are very lightweight. These are well pigmented and I recommend using a fluffy brush so that you can build the color and shimmer gradually.

On the Face

As I mentioned above, these are some of my absolute favorite highlighters when I want a decent amount of shimmer. They are not chunky and are finely milled and lightweight. While I don't find that they blur lines and pores, I do find that these are very complementary on the face and don't overly emphasize texture as long as they're not applied with a super heavy hand (which I wouldn't recommend for any highlighter personally).

On the Eye

I typically use baked shadows to either create a gentle wash of color or pat over another products for extra dimension (I like them over cream products). While these are not lacking in pigmentation per say, their soft formulas translate to a soft effect on the skin. I think knowing how they will translate onto the eye will help you apply them in such a way as to best show off their beautiful colors and finishes. While all 3 colors are nice, Orange Blossom is amazingly unique in my opinion and I cannot wait to include it in some future looks. I recommend using a fluffy shadow brush with these so you can pick up a decent amount of products.

My Thoughts

I think this set has a fabulous theme and includes some really lovely products! This is such a fabulous gift idea and I think it would be a super cute stocking stuffer or under-the-tree present for any makeup lover. I love that they come in 3 separate boxes held in 1 longer box, making it easy to split them up and give them to multiple people if you want--you could rearrange them and put 1 blush, 1 highlighter and 1 shadow in each macaroon box for customized mini sets! While I do think the shimmer in the blush and highlighters require a little bit of finesse when applying, with a little bit of experimentation I think anyone can get the hang of them!

What do you think? Will this be making its way to your holiday wishlist?
