Laura Geller Holiday Baked Stackable Macaroons Collection
LOVE IT !!
These are perfect !!! Love all the colors, love the product !!!!
only fresh faces
Beautiful colors.nice predation. However they ARE to shimmery for my 52yr old face. I tried all kinds of ways and even a light hand didn't cut it. I'm sure on a young fresh smooth face they look fab. Terri..
BEST OF THE BEST!
I bought this collection and I love it! Now I'm buying one for my daughter for Christmas. EVERY color is beautiful and I can interchange them all for eye shadow/ cheek color/ highlighter! There isn't a "bad" color in the bunch.........best eye shadow kit I've ever bought from Laura! Thought I would share these with my daughter but too good to give away so I just have to buy another kit!
This was a great birthday surprise from my sweet husband. It arrived today, I automatically began to play with it and apply. There's not one thing about this collection that I don't love! Thanks, Laura Geller! Oh, the highlighters may be my fave (at least today) I'm wearing each one, as well as my standby, French vanilla that I always wear in the corner of my nose, by my eyes. Oh, I have juicy cheeks with one color (I was so excited I didn't read the names as I applied), a gorgeous under-brow highlight with the lavender shade (sounds like it may not work, but it's perfection, and I highlighted above my eye-brows on my forehead instead of the middle of the forehead for the look of an eye lift ;~). The blushes are GORGEOUS (I think I'm wearing lychee rose. And I'm wearing every eye color, lid in the medium color, crease and eyeliner with darker shade and gold in corner of eye on very edge of the inner eyelid.
Did I say LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection - my husband did good!!
Very Pretty Colors
Received this collection yesterday and was happy when I opened them. The colors are Beautiful. I do not find them to glittery . As a licensed cosmetologist you can not have a heavy hand. Better to layer as you go. The only concern I have is the darkest color in the eyeshadow may not be Dark enough to contour the eye the way I like. May have to use slightly wet.( I have very highlighted hair and Blue/Gray eyes and usually need Darker in the crease to make my eyes pop) I think this collection is to Beautiful to send back because if this so I will blend a few colors that I have to make it work. I LOVE Laura's Baked eye shadows. Always creamy and blend well never chalky/or powdery(ugh) Would def. recommend
I LUV Macaroons!
I not understand all the negative complaints about glitter\shimmer in the products in the macaroons kit. The key to applying any make-up is the amount of product you use. For a lighter dusting of color I use a dry brush\ blend.For more intense color dampen the brush apply\ blend well.I like the translucent creamy texture of the product. I am a light to med complexion African american woman and found most of the shades do well on my golden skin. I have used the cheek colors as eye shadow. I am not a fan of wearing blush, great colors for soft daytime make-up! They give me a hint of color.If you apply too much of the product or the wrong shade for your skin tone; yes you will look like a colored disco ball!!!! LOL :-D
Too Shimmery For Everyday
I do love LG's makeup and I thought I would love this set too-wrong!It is a holiday collection so I should have realized this is not for everyday wear or even during the day due to the high glitter/shimmer content.I am a "make-up junkie" who does enjoy a little shimmer but it was just too much in the blushes and shadows, the lightest shadow even has glitter in it that falls off the lids and gets all over your face.The highlighters were beautiful, though I would not keep the whole set just for them.I sent the set back and will continue to enjoy her other products.
I usually like laura geller makeup and look forward to her annual holiday kits. So when i saw this as a one-time-only i jumped on it. Unfortunately, as some others have stated, all of these are too glittery for me. The three highlighters are about the same shade. The blushes are too bright to be used as blush or shadow. I gave it two stars because the presentation is cute as a gift, and these are nice sizes to have for travel (also because it takes so long to "use up" a full size.) i will continue to purchase other laura geller products as i have been pleased with most of what i receive.
Oh Laura these are gorgeous, I love everyone!. They are so versatile!!! I don't think they are too glittery, just a beautiful wash of soft shimmer, very nice!! All colors are so wearable!! The orange blossom I think is my favorite, I used that as an all over eye color and then put one of the darker ones in the crease, lovely!!! And they last all day!!! The shadow stayed all day through a long day at work, and still looked good when I went to wash my face that night!!! Thanks QVC and Laura, have a bless holiday season!!! :)
Too much Shimmer & Glitter
Love Laura and her baked products but IMHO these have way too much Shimmer and Glitter. I had to send them back.
I love these macaroons , the blushes have beautiful colors a little goes a long way .Shadows and highlighters are outstanding .Very happy about my purchase.
I am a huge laura fan but I felt this kit fell short. The colors were all very warm. I think there might have been one that I felt I could wear. I think most makeup professions forget that not everyone can wear browns, beiges and the other warm based products. Sadly back it went.
