A218582 - Laura Geller Big Apple Beauty 3-pc Taxi Bag Collection
Best Concealer Ever!!!!
I purchased a tsv with this concealer in it in the same size and I have been using it for over 6 months. It last for EVER!!! Coverage is excellent! It only takes a pin head size for under eyes. TRY IT !!!!
SIZE IS AS PRESENTED
If u watch video presentation u will see she makes a point of showing u how small concealer is and if u look at still shot of the products when its sitting beside lipgloss, it is the same size as what u get.
That being said, to DOES only take a pinhead size drop. i found it to be to be too thick for under eyes but had a huge bruise on my shin and it covered it totally and blended perfectly and next day the bruise was still covered, it had not rubbed off while i slept.
I also like the gloss altho i agree the tube is a bit of a pain to use and once it gets to the bottom, i can just imagine how hard it will be to get out.
But i just LOVE the blush. It is big and a little goes a very long way. I only sweep my own fat brush across it once. I typically have a hard time with any makeup looking natural on me...but i will tell u what sold me on this. I'm 55 and decnt looking but no beauty queen...lol. Unexpectedly, my mom called saying a repairmen was coming and since i needed to be there immediately (she's old) I had no time for makeup. So I took my blush brush and just swished it all over my face and a little more on cheeks. Once the guy left, mom said he tol her, "Your daughter is pretty. "Well, that just made my day!!!
But on top of that, when I said to mom that I didnt even have any makeup on, and said "Seee???" she says, "Wow...you DO look pretty." (which is not typical of her...lol.)
So that just sealed the deal on the blush for me. On me, it is very natural looking. I am blondish, tan easily, and have yellow undertones. I also have oily skin and large pores....just so others can know it works on this type skin.
As others have said, i could do without the bag and have just paid less fo the products.
My beef with this kit is the lip gloss. I like the color -- very pretty -- but it doesn't go on smoothly and worst of all is the packaging. The very rigid plastic tube makes it difficult to control the application. And I can tell this small tube isn't going to last long at all. I understand the concealer only requires the tiniest amount so the teeny weeny tube should last a while. I don't even squeeze out any product; I just touch my fingertip to the opening and that's all it takes. I use it over the Spackle as recommended and it's OK, but not the incredible product described in the presentation. I prefer philosophy concealer. The blush is a nice blend. I could do without the bag.
ALL ABOARD A NYC TAXI…
…TO GIVE ME A LITTLE BIT OF ‘HOME’… CABBIE, TAKE ME TO 5TH AVENUE, PLEASE. I NEED A BITE OF LAURA GELLER’S ‘BIG APPLE BEAUTY’. The taxi bag is memorabilia of my life in NYC Battery Park, before 911. The products Laura has enclosed comprise a great value… The products replenish my stock of favorite Laura essential products. In full-size, the Blush-n-Brighten tasty Berry is a fav in my book; the blush glows on my face in a 'just-right' hue; Light Beams lip gloss in Passion Fruit is in sync with the blush, and the Real Deal concealer -- is a must-have in Light for me. The mirror in the compact is a fab addition to pop up anywhere to refresh my face, and not to miss out on the pop-up retractable brush! A substantial kit, and yes, Laura …all in a ‘New York minute’! :-)
Another real deal!
The real deal concealer really does work and I love this new shade of blush n brighten
The gloss is my least favorite, but nothing is wrong with it - !! The bag is perfect size for fitting in pocketbook and so cute on outside.
I am a fan of many of Laura Geller's products, and this is a great value. I was out of my balance and brighten blush, and this was the perfect opportunity to replenish and try the concealer also.. In this kit the blush is glowing on my face, the lip gloss matches the blush perfectly, and the concealer works well! My only suggestion is to try a new dispenser for the concealer. The portion is too much. The product only needs a smidge, and you get a glop!
I was disappointed at the size of the concealer....just sample size. Even so, If it worked, that would have been worth it. I used it sparingly, but made my under eye wrinkles more noticable. I thought the blush was my favorite, pink grapefruit, that I dropped, by the way, and smashed to pieces, but I;m still using, but I tried this new one and still prefer the pink grapefruit. The lipgloss, no, nothing special, and it's annoying to squeeze on it and try to get it on the lips. So back it will go. Laura, I do like some of your products, namely the spackle and wish you would bring back the building blocks I got several years ago. Oh, and please keep prices down, times are very hard still for most people and these are not products one has to buy. The shipping and handling has gone off the wall too. Thank you.
Great afor all ages
My first time trying Laura Geller - like the products - great lip color, and the Blush is very pretty, if you don't put too much on - the concealer really works well on scars and flaws.
GREAT for any age - I am 62 years old - I like the bag, but would have enjoyed a cute British Taxi on the bag, instead of yellow cab.
Great idea to have these items in a small traveling bag. I could take the bag with me on the plane. Love the full size Blush n Brighten! After a tough day of traveling---the compact has a mirror and I can apply the blush as needed. Of course, I already have the retractable Laura Geller brush---which I added to this group of items. The lipstick does not stay on very long but I use it as a gloss over my lips. Keeps lips soft.
For traveling---I wish Laura would make under make-up primer--Spackle in a travel container----I have the large one [4 oz] that I also have on auto-pay----but it would never get through security.
I hardly use the concealer so if I do have a breakout---I know where to find it.
Good deal if your looking for Blush...
I purchased this kit because I wanted to try LG products... well first off let me say if your a fan of her blush - This one is HUGE! I dont think you will be able to get thru it in a year if you use it everyday. I find its a very deep plummy color, you dont really get a good idea of it from the presentation. As for the lipgloss, I didnt care for the color as it had a pinky orange undertone to it - didnt like it on me. And the concealer was a sample size. I can not imagine that is a real size of concealer. I returned my kit wasnt working for me in terms of colors.
I love this cute little bag, the concealer is nice and the lip gloss is really pretty, the blush is beautiful, totally happy with my purchase. thanks QVC and LAURA GELLER
Too Little for Too Much $$$
I was so needing this kit, especially for the Real Deal Concealer, but when I opened the package, I was not a happy camper. As one of the other reviews written, this was not the size represented on TV. I love Laura Geller and her products, but this set with S.H. is not worth close to $40. The lipgloss is also not the size shown on TV. It's like a sample size. The blush is way too shiny and sparkly. Oh, and the bag is cute, but doesn't warrant the price either. I'd rather have product than cute bags. I feel this collection wasn't described and shown correctly as far as the sizes of the products. This set is too much cash for what I'm receiving. So, I'd rather spend $20 and get the full size concealer and call this set a total wash. Sorry Laura, but it's coming back.
