Laura Geller 25 Shades of Baked Eyeshadow Collection
Colors that are trend!
Saw the negative reviews and have to give my voice. If you are looking for eye shadows that are now and on trend with fashion, this is a must buy! There is every color of shadow to pop your eyes. I am 43 yo and love all the colors. Yes, some have a hint of sparkle and pearl, but there are matte colors to blend to give your eyes dimension. Great brush is included. So glad I purchased. Left my other shadows in the drawer since this set is now my go to. BTW well packaged when received.
Was going to buy
Was going to buy 3 but the reviews scared me off. My daughter and her daughter (and me) all love Geller eyeshadows. But, didn't want the cost of sending them back after I read the other reviews.
25 color eye kit
recieved this last wk. Item came in great condition. Loved the color assortment & also placement of colors. Was just slightly higher than what I would normally pay but it was worth it. Would recommend for any fashionistas.
One of my worst purchases ever. Laura Geller never mentioned that this is is a palette of glitter shadow perfect for a thirteen year old. Great disappointment when I expected Laura Geller quality.
Love, Love, Love!!!
These are the best shadows ever!!!! My favorite is the khaki and the purple shades!!! I LOVE these eye shadows so much! Keep up the good work, Laura Geller!!!! :)
BIG BEAUTIFUL SET BOLD COLORS
This was a Christmas gift for my 29 year old daughter....she loves it and so do I . This was a great buy for so many full size shadows of Laura's.
no staying power
I was excited to get them, colors nice , but like some have already said ,they have no staying power. I barely make an hour with them on and then gone. I would have sent them back but the month was up.so don't waste your money., I wish I could get my money back. I also used a primer.
My first impression of these eye shadows was thinking how beautiful the colors are. They certainly do go all over the place when brushing the surface. And I expect some of the colors won't be useful for my purposes because they're too glittery. However, between the colors that will work as eyeshadow and those that make beautiful eye liner, I think I will find plenty of use for most of them. I'm really enjoying experimenting with this collection.
Great X 2
Bought this collection for my 17 yr old Grand daughter for Christmas. She absolutely loved it; I knew she would. A bit of a splurge for me, but she's worth it. Well, recently she took the eye shadow case with her to Anchorage for a Pageant hoping to win the prize, a scholarship. Someone stole the eye shadows & she is absolutely heartbroken.
Her 18th Birthday is Feb 2, and I'm agonizing over wanting to get it again for her. I'm having a hard time justifying spending the money, but that's how much she loves it, so I probably will. This is such a good purchase for anyone who loves beautiful colors, or just loves to experiment with color on the eyes.
Worst eyeshadow ever tried
Oh my gosh. Where to start. First sign of trouble is that as you run the brush over the shadows the color pops all over the container. It is like it has static or something. You end up trying to pick up the shadow off the surrounding cardboard so as not to waste so much of it. Ok. So you finally get it on your eyelids. It doesn't want to stay there either. You maybe get 1 hour wear time and then you start to notice that a lot of it has left your eye area and found it's way to your cheek bones. Not kidding. By two hours wear time you look ridiculous. I am wary of holiday formulations because they are so often not the same trustworthy product that you have come to rely on - but - Lisa Robertson pointed out that this was not a cheap holiday formulation but rather Laura's usual formula - to which Laura herself agreed. Well Laura .. don't need it. Returned.
Great eye shadows
Good purchase. Eye shadows go on great. Nice variety of colors. Laura makes great products.
Need To Rethink The Packaging
Being a woman of color, I was somewhat skeptical when I purchased this item, as I haven't had much luck with Laura Geller products in the past. I threw caution to the wind and purchased this product. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised how beautifully the colors worked with my skin tone. I do agree with another reviewer that a couple of the shades have a bit of fall-off, leaving sparkles on your face. I also think that the packaging is not strong enough to withstand packing for travel, even though I had it padded pretty well among my clothing, and I packed in my Heys suitcase. The mirror has broken, which in turn caused one of the eye shadows to crack. Also, the cardboard needs to be made out of stronger material as after my recent trip, several more of the shadows cracked. I would give this product more stars, but the packaging leaves much to be desired.
