A211185 - Laura Geller Femme Fatale Baked Plum Eyeshadow
Very beautiful and travel friendly
I was very pleased with this kit. The colors go beautifully with my green eyes, and they do not look so "purply" on the eyes, they rather look more neutral, like mocha. I think this is a great little kit to travel, since these colors go with EVERYTHING, it has its own little brush, and is very compact. The brush is rather small and not as easy to work with, but perfect if you're looking for something small that you can just throw in your bag and go. I also have the bake sale eye pie kit, which is lovely as well, but it is too pink and doesn't go with more salmon or coral tone outfits, or very colorful outfits. This kit I think is more neutral and universal.
Whenever I go out of town, this is the only eye makeup I take with me, and I can make it look as soft and natural or as dramatic as I want by just applying more or less shadow. I haven't found another kit by LG that is as versatile as this one, although her other kits are very pretty as well. This one I think is more universal, and very flattering for most eye colors and skin tones.
Have used LG products for years. Love most of them---not this one. I found the shades to be waaay to dark for my green eyes, blond hair, and fair skin. It just looked too harsh and almost gawdy on me, even when I used only a small amount. The packaging is elegant and lovely!
Having read some of the other reviews, I have to agree that this product has some drawbacks: it is overpriced for the quantity and the powder does fly around the compact. However, the colors, while not as shown on TV, are pretty and light enough for every day wear and they coordinate well. I have green eyes and the plum palette really makes my eye color show up! I use a plum liner under the eye as well. I'll have to see how long this product lasts, since I use it daily.
I want more!
I just received this yesterday and used it this morning. I love it. I want more colors. I like having the three colors together. No thinking about it when you are in a hurry. It is small and compact...perfert for travel.
I think these colors are very nice but the value is very poor. The amount you get of each color is very small. The brush on the inside is nearly worthless. It takes 4-5 swipes of the product to do each eye. I love LG eye shadow but I would never buy it in a kit like this again. You are better off buying the full size product without the compact,mirror and mini brush.
powder flies all over
I am unhappy with this product. It is like a mess of sparkle powder, flying everywhere and no real color.
I am dissapointed and in my opinion this product is not even up to drug store quality
I have to send it back.
disappointed in colors and look after application
I loved the look of this eyeshadow on TV on all the different models. I often get compliments on my eye make up and love to experiment with different looks. But this product was disappointing. Although the texture and length of wear time was good, I was really disappointed in the way the colors made me appear more tired and drab looking. I have tried it with both wet and dry applications. It is not the same look as it was on TV.
I will end up using it, but I will mix it with other make up I already have. It was not worth the high price tag for me. I have to say this is the VERY FIRST QVC product that I have not been absolutely thrilled with. I would have a hard time recomending this to a friend..
I'm an "older" lady and not real keen on shimmery and glittery eyeshadows but this I love! All the colors are beautiful and it is a great way to mix and match using the lighter as shadow and the darker as liner. I think the colors would be complimentary to all skin tones. And the shimmery-ness (a new word?) is really not over the top. I would like to see another such packaging in green, brown, or lavender tones. Thanks again Laura!
I've waited several months for this item to be available again. Finally got it. The colors are very nice and coordinated and since I've become such a Laura Geller fan, I'm not surprised. Can't wait to wear these colors. Thank you Laura Geller and QVC.
Not Impressed For The Price......
This is just alright. I don't feel it's a good buy considering the price. If you ask me, it's worth around fifteen dollars less.
I have Laura Geller products in drawers and all over my vanity, this is not something I have been reaching for since I used it two or three times and that was months ago now.
Oh so Sexy!!
Laura, I absolutely LOVE these baked plum eyeshadows. The colors are perfect for me and go with almost anything I wear. I'm coming back to get another set for fear of running out. It's really all I need for eyeshadows when I go out of town or on vacation. Please don't stop making this combination. I'll be sixty in August and it makes me feel sexy, but not desperate. Thanks again keep the baked coming.
Enjoying this product
I don't use this weekly, but when I do choose these colors...this is nice. The colors are rich and dense. I don't like a heavy makeup look, so I mostly use it dry...have wet it down a couple of times, and it's lovely that way as well. More expensive than eye shadows that I usually purchase, thus only 3 stars.
