Laura Geller – Baked Eye Shadows Swatches

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 4 - 2010

Remember this post from last week?  (gawd, was that *only* last week?!)

A couple of you demanded requested swatches, and I do aim to please… (sometimes)…

</a

Pink Icing/Devil’s Food:

L – R: Pink Icing (foiled), Pink Icing, Devil’s Food, Devil’s Food (foiled)

Bewitching Bronze:

L – R: Dry, Foiled – not a huge amount of difference there is there? Amazing pigmentation.

Fire Water:

Sorry, no pan shot (forgot!), check out the very top picture to see what it looks like.

L – R: Fire (Foiled), Fire, Water, Water (Foiled)

The Blue out of Fire Water is indeed beautiful, and the swatch does it justice… but it’s still too glittery and crumbly to be classed as anything other than a pain in the arse.

Here’s a quick EOTD with Pink Icing/Devil’s Food (my favourite):

Very simply: Pink Icing on the lid, Devil’s Food in the crease and foiled as a liner.

Sorry for the manky eyeball shot, hopefully you’re not eating or anything… I woulda shut my eye, but then you’d have had manky creasey eyelids to look at instead.

Thanks for all your recommendations on which other Laura Geller products I should have a look at, I’ve now got *quite* the shopping list!  Enablers, the bleedin’ lot of ya!

    Oooh so pretty, my mum has some of these from QVC but I doubt she would let me ‘borrow’ them…must sneak them into my makeup bag!

  2. Nina says:

    Those shadows look amazing! I thought Pink Icing would be too pink, but it’s a beautiful nude pink colour. If these 3 were the only shadows I owned I’d be happy!

  3. Prettiest bronze shadows I’ve seen in a while! :O

    Oh, and in reference to your photography tips post the other day – I tried the whole diffusing flash with a tissue thing on my P&S and it totally worked!

  4. Lucy says:

    Looks totally gorge on the eye and that foiled water is SUCH a fab colour X

  5. Ally says:

    Laura geller products are generally amazing! The pink icing, has been in my collection for a couple of years and one way to switch it up is to put the lighter colour in the crease and the dark brown on the lid. I have never failed to get compliments on this look. As other have recommended..her blushes and bronzers are beautiful. I somehow missed your LG post!

  6. Helen says:

    I love love love them. And I need more. Going back to the previous post to see where you got them from.

  7. Redtiger21 says:

    Oooh thatnks for the great swatches! I do love the look of those colours- how exactly do you foil your shadows? Sorry, i’m sure you’ve said before but i can’t remember when or where!

  8. @Helen – Get theeself on eBay my love x

  9. @SS – So glad you’re finding ways to diffuse your flash! Another one is holding a coffee filter infront of the flash :)

  10. @Redtiger21 – Use a synthetic brush… like a concealer brush.

    Wet it (you can use water, facial mist spray, fix+, whatever) and then apply your shadow like normal x Most shadows say whether they can be used wet or not or just google if you’re not sure.

    I usually foil the shadow that’s going on my lid, but then use the crease colour dry as iI find foiled shadows trickier to blend and I’m inherently lazy x

    omg how gorgeous! shame the blue is more a P.I.T.A than anything. Would have been really tempted

  12. I’ve never tried any Laura Geller products before, but these look gorgeous!

  13. Shifa says:

    I love the pink and brown due. I had it for quite a while and used up the pink completely and did not even touch the brown lol. It appears kinda muddy on my eyes :S

  14. ARGH I really want these now haha! Damn you and your gorgeous photos that make everything look BEAUTIFUL! First the alice palette now these.. you’re going to make me broke 😉 and no problem for the shoutout, you very much helped me bag my palette :) xxx
