GIVEAWAY & REVIEW! Laura Geller new releases have me swooning!

Dewdreamer Illuminating Drops, Giveaway, Iconic Baked Sculpting Lipstick, Laura Geller, Laura Geller Hampton Palette, Laura Geller Nude Kisses, review, Spackle Blur,

As I've mentioned before on the blog, Laura Geller is a brand that I grow to love more with every product that I try! Therefore you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive a parcel of the latest releases from the brand! There are new face palettes, lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid highlighters and blur sticks - all so beautiful that I didn't know where to start! Luckily, I was sent two of the face palettes so I'm delighted to be able to do a giveaway with the second one because, believe me, you will want it in your life! Stay reading to the end of the post for details on how to win!

Spackle Blur: There are two options available: hydrate and matte, which is the one that I have. This is essentially, a stick primer that blurs the look of pores. I personally find that this works best when applied to the hand and then pressed into the skin around the nose/cheek area, rather than applied directly to the skin. It is also useful to wear on no-makeup days when you want to tone down the visibility of pores and mattify the skin. £23

Laura Geller Dewdreamer Illuminating Drops Review, Diamond Dust

Dewdreamer Illuminating Drops: There are four shades available in this liquid highlighter and I was kindly sent Diamond Dust, which is a pearlescent pinky-white shade. This is the runniest highlighter that I have ever tried so I personally wouldn't use it in the traditional highlight way, however I find that it works really well either under my foundation or mixed with my base product. It adds a beautiful 'lit from within' look to the skin but if you want to up the ante, you can carefully apply a small amount over foundation to the high points of the cheekbones and then top that up with the matching Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator. A little goes a long way with this so this 15ml bottle will last forever! £21.

Laura Geller Nude Kisses Glosses Review & Swatches

Nude Kisses Lip Hugging Lip Gloss: I love the formula of Laura Geller glosses and this new range is no exception. There are 16 shades available, all in varying tones of nude; some with a creme finish, others with a shimmer but they are all extremely comfortable to wear and non-sticky. They are called lip hugging glosses due to the shape of the applicator - one side can be used to outline the lip and then you turn it around and due to its shape, it hugs the lips to provide an even application - something that isn't always easy to achieve with a gloss. The result is plump-looking lips with a high shine finish. The four shades I was kindly sent are:

Barely There - a mid-toned shimmering pink.
Blushing - a mid-toned pink with a hit of mauve with a shimmering finish.
Coastal - a muted peach with a shimmering finish.
Bikini Bottom - a mauve-toned plum with a creme finish.

All four have the same, light caramel scent and are pigmented, which is unusual for glosses. My summer lips are covered with these shades! £16.

Laura Geller Iconic Baked Sculpting Lipstick Review & Swatches

Iconic Baked Sculpting Lipstick: The latest addition to the baked range that Laura Geller is renowned for, these lipsticks have a magnetic method of closing, which is oh so satisfying! These lipsticks are the perfect harmony of both style and substance because they are long-wearing, comfortable and pigmented. They also have a curved bullet for ease of application. There are 13 shades available and I was kindly sent three:

Tribeca Tan - a terracotta with a satin finish.
Mulberry St - a ruby red with a satin finish.
East Side Rouge - a plummy red with a satin finish.

These are some of the most comfortable lipsticks that I have ever worn. They last around 4/5 hours on the lips before they need re-applying although at that point, there is still a stain on the lips.

Laura Geller Montauk Escape Face Palette Review, Swatches, Giveaway

Montauk Escape Face Palette: They have released two new face palettes and I was kindly sent the Montauk option. Housed in a sturdy plastic palette are four eyeshadows, a bronzer and blush. The four shadows are all warm toned and all work well together. They are:

Cabana - a light gold shimmer, which is soft to touch, finely milled, smooth and easy to apply.
Popsicle - a matte berry that feels a little powdery to touch, but applies evenly and can be built up.
Sandcastle - a matte medium brown. Smooth, pigmented and easy to work with.
Bonfire - a deep brown with a plum shimmer running through it. Pigmented, slightly powdery to touch but easy to work with.

On the left is Vitamin Sea, which is a neutral bronzer that isn't very pigmented, but can be layered and on the right is Summer Solstice, which is a warm coral blush that is shimmery but not glittery. It's flattering on my medium skin and I think it will be even more beautiful when I have a little colour in my cheeks over the summer months. It also contains a little guide card with suggestions on how best to use the 6 products, which is helpful if you aren't very experienced in using more than 2 shades on the eyes. Overall, it's a great little palette - perfect for weekends away! I'm quite tempted to buy the Southampton palette as those shades would be perfect for my summer holiday! £32.

All of these Laura Geller products can be purchased from DebenhamsCult Beauty, Look Fantastic and Beauty Bay.
