Laura Geller is a brand that I feel deserves more hype in the beauty world. I have tried quite a few products from the brand and they have all impressed me. The price point is in the mid range - not quite budget but definitely not high end either, which is where I think some brand get overlooked as they aren't cheap enough to buy without much thought but also not a luxury brand with fancy packaging and a high price tag and cult status. The other brands that I believe fall into this category that I have already posted about are Stila and theBalm. Today I want to share my five favourites from Laura Geller and let me tell you that it was tricky to choose just five!
Filter First Luminous Foundation: This foundation offers medium but buildable coverage with a luminous but not dewy finish. It glides over pores and fine lines, rather than highlighting them and creates a smooth, even base. I find that it's very long-lasting and doesn't break down at all over time. It's quite similar to Armani Luminous Silk foundation, if you are familiar with that but with a cheaper price tag. Available from Beauty Bay, Debenhams and Feel Unique.
Dewdreamer Illuminating Drops: There are four shades of this liquid highlighter available and it can be used in a number of ways - under foundation (particularly if you are using a matte base), mixed with foundation (to add some glow) or as a traditional highlighter. It is a very runny liquid so if you want to use it as a highlighter, I would recommend applying a few drops to your hand initially and then using a beauty blender to apply where you want to highlight. It can be built up for a 'seen from outer space' look or applied lightly for some gentle highlighting. Available from Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay, Debenhams, Feel Unique.
Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator: This was the first Laura Geller product that I bought and I fell in love! Available in four shades, this highlighter is a powder but it has a creamy texture so it melts into the skin. I find that it is very flattering on the skin and because it is buttery soft, it doesn't accentuate any fine lines. For a very intense look, this works beautifully when applied over the matching Illuminating Drops. Available from Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay, Debenhams, Feel Unique, Look Fantastic.
Lip Gloss: There are two types of lip gloss available and I have some of each: Lip Lustre and Nude Kisses. I would describe the lip lustres as glossy lip toppers because they just add a hint of colour, whereas the nude kisses glosses are more pigmented. What I love about both is that they are non-sticky and feel comfortable on the lips. I find that the nude kisses glosses make my lips look full and plump, which I love. I find that both types apply evenly, which doesn't always happen with glosses so if you are a lip gloss fan at heart, I really recommend trying these. Available from Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay, Debenhams, Feel Unique, Look Fantastic.
Iconic Baked Sculpting Lipsticks: Available in 13 shades, these lipsticks are seriously pigmented and comfortable on the lips. They have a curved bullet for ease of application - one swipe and you're done! They contain a combination of oils, which makes the formula creamy but not overly slippy so you don't need to worry about it sliding all over your teeth and face and they have a satin finish. I find that they will last around 5 hours on me before they need to be re-applied and the formula is ideal for Autumn/Winter when the temperatures drop. Available from Feel Unique, Debenhams, Look Fantastic.
