A206507 - Laura Geller Baked Eye Shadow
I love licorice
I love LG's mint licorice eye shadow. It is so subtle and smokey. It has a hint of green and grey that is so basic that it goes with just about everything. I have hazel eyes and this color brings out the green soooooo much. I love this color. Please Laura, do not discontinue the color. I used to be able to get it at Macy's, but no longer. Please don't stop offering it through QVC!! Girls, try it especially if you have hazel or green eyes. Love, love, love.
PLEASE BRING BACK FORREST GREEN
I have not been able to find the forrest green eye shadow anymore.
I have green eyes and I use the forrest green to outline only the outsides of my eyes to help accentuate my eyes. I am just about out of my old one and cannot find that color anywhere anymore... please bring that color back! I cannot wear green w/black in it.. it's too dark.
Not a blue person
I think the last time I wore 'blue' eyeshadow was in Jr. High School, many years ago. I would never had considered buying blue now, however, I received the blue icing in the last test tube so decided to try it for a laugh. The color is amazing and definitely does not look like the name suggests. My eyes are brown and my skin tone is fair to medium. The blue icing looks like a neutral, warm sheen without shine or sparkle and very easy to use. This is my new everyday, go to eye color. Thanks Laura!
TOO MUCH BLACK FOR ME LAURA GELLER!!!!
I received a Laura Geller baked marble eyeshadow in a Test Tube I ordered in Mint. The color has way too much black in it unfortunately. I liked the texture of the eyeshadow a lot and perhaps I may try it in another color that is flattering for me. I do not use black eyeshadow unless I am trying to make up a scary custume for holloween or something like that only. I am an artist who started doing portraits in highschool and was immediately hooked on them. I apply makeup the same way I would paint a portrait. Makeup is just another medium of art. I was contouring in the 70's. I have been offered so positions with some very big makeup companies (however, I didn't want to work in it full-time at that time). I stopped using black eyeliner when I was in my mid-twenties. It can really age a person and date them. I prefer working with colors that define but are more natural looking like browns. Even when you know and understand color you can still make mistakes with it. I hate when people get on QVC and say everyone can wear this color. Technically, everyone can wear the color; but, not everyone is going to look good in that color. People are individuals and so should makeup. Yes, there are some basics such as primers which I lighly recommend. They can make a big difference in how well makeup wears and looks good without having to touch it up. I believe in wearing a good quality makeup. A good quality makeup has a better pigment that last and wears much better not to mention last a lot longer because you use a lot less of it. If you know how to store and take care of makeup it can last you a long time. When I was 19 yrs. old I learned a valuable lesson about how important skincare is to do. Skincare is 1 of the most important things to learn about makeup. Good skincare goes a long way into looking good with makeup. Yes, you can hide a lot with makeup; but, makeup doesn't replace good skincare. Makeup is to enhance your looks. I love the fact that makeup companies today are more conscience about adding skincare properties to their makeup. I do not subscribe to everything that Laura Geller recommends people do with makeup anymore than I do Bobbie Brown. I am an artist and I apply makeup that best works for that individual person. Putting dark pinks and reds on your eyelids make you look like you are sick with a cold or flu people. I have never bought anything from Laura Geller that I have liked yet; but, then I am very particular. I do like the texture of this eyeshadow & perhaps I may try a color that is more flattering for me that doesn't have a whole lot of black in it. I was interested in the green color in the mint; but, there was so much black in it I couldn't find enough of the pure green color without all the black in it to try. Try making this color without all the black. Instead of the black color replace it with a lighter shade of the green color perhaps or use a little bit of brown in it (a more natural coor). But, please leave out the black with this green. I don't even like to use black eyeliner anymore. I stopped wearing black eyeliner in my mid-twenties. I perfer browns for me. It defines while still being more natural looking. I fine that black eyeliner can really date and age people greatly--nice I am now 59 I am not trying to date myself or trying to make myself look older. When I was younger, I looked older with black eyeliner and as I got older I found that I looked younger using browns. I'm not trying to look like some "old" beauty queen that has pasted her prime in life. Black makes a statement all right. It reads as old and dated. You can define your eyes with colors that don't date you so much. Greys work great for some people and browns work well for others. They aren't nearly as harsh looking as black. I like the idea and texture of this Laura Geller eyeshadow that I may try it in a color that doesn't have any black in it and is flattering for me. I will try to unload this Mint color of eyeshadow on to someone who is perhaps very young (teenager at church perhaps). Laura, please try making this green shadow without all the black in it. I have green flecks in my brown eyes and I would like the green to help bring out the green in my eyes. The green color is actually very pretty; but, I wasn't able to get just the green color without all the black and it isn't because I didn't try believe me. Make this green without all the black and I will probably like it a lot. Good greens can be hard colors to get in eyeshadows. Hopefully, Laura Geller can create a geen color eyeshadow that I like. I like to stay away from the olive green colors because too much yellow doesn't work for me. I have cool undertones in my skin and I like to work with my skin undertones. When you go against your skin undertones the colors don't work well for you. There are cool browns and there are warm browns, there are cool greys and there are warm greys, there are cool and warm in colors depending on the amount of yellow or blue in the color. Wearing colors that flatter your skin undertones always good better. And NO Bobbie Brown and other people out there who believe that everyone has a lot of yellow in their skintone. I don't have a lot of yellow in my skintone just like a lot of other people in the world. 80% of the population are cool undertones. Yet, so many makeup companies want to shove yellow down our throws. Leslie, if you are going to make makeup at least try to learn color. Well Rested is the complementary color of darkness around your eyes. Complementary colors cancell other colors out. Please, Leslie learn color!
I haven't worn blue eyeshadow since the 80's but wanted to give this a try since I love all of Laura's products.. oh myyyy...so glad I did. I have very long dark brown hair and a medium complexion and brown eyes and let me just say..it's aweseomeness..just the right shade, just the right everything..lined with black and a bit of navy liner and it's perfect! Thanks, Laura, your products are fantastic...and if you happen to be reading this, your attitude is just as beautiful as your products and you are..you always make me smile, thank you! :)
Lovely color ; goes on smoothly ... can't say enough for the color. You can apply lightly or heavy changing the intensity of the blue color. What a concept Laura -- Bravo to you!!

All the Laura Geller products I have gotten have been so worth it.
I love the baked eye shadow for all the amazing colors mixed into them.
Love Laura's baked eye shadows
I love trying new beauty products and this one is a winner. I think Laura is brilliant for her baked eye shadows! They are my favorite! Wear them dry or wet them and you'll find the color is more intense. GREAT EYE SHADOWS!!! I would also recommend the products listed below. These are my favorite make up products. :D
"Eye" Love This Shadow
Purchased this in Blue Icing. The swirls of colors are fabulous. Thanks Laura♥♥♥
The Best...i'm a Geller Girl now!
Laura's products are by far the best on the market. This product works as a shadow and a liner and stays on! Having tried every eye shadow made for the last 40 years...this is the finest. Thank you Laura!
Eye popping at its best!!!
I too have brown eyes and purchased the mint, this product is the bomb. I typcially use this as an eyeliner (wet). This product will last a long time. The mint color is a must for brown eyes, it makes them pop; especially when used wet and as an eyeliner--the bomb and then some!!!
