Laura Geller is a nice Jewish lady who sells her line of makeup products on QVC. During the recent snowstorm that hit the Northeast she was on selling her products, and having nothing better to do and my IPhone close by, I indulged in a few items.
Now by way of explaination Ms. Geller is most famous for her Spackle makeup primer (refer to previous post) and her “baked” blushes, eyeshadows and even eyeliners. She claims these are mousses of several colors blended and baked for 24 hours on TerraCotta pans in ovens in Italy. Ok, I’m a half-Italian girl and if you tell me it’s from Italy I’ma buy it! Her line was available on Sephora, but it has since been pulled. As far as I know you can now only buy it from QVC, her website or her store on Madison Avenue in New York, NY.
Ms. Geller also claims she attended and learned her makeup artistry skills under a famous Theatrical makeup
artist. She did makeup on Broadway shows for many years before opening her own makeup studio and then creating her own line and selling to the masses on television.
I have previously purchased some if her baked blushes which are gorgeous swirls of harmonious colors. These are called Blush and Brightens. The foundation is called Balance and Brighten and the Bronze is, what else, Bronze and Brighten. She also produces regular foundations, lipsticks and eyeshadows.
So, the items that intrigued me were her Tropics lipstick and gloss and the Eye Rimz eyeliner.
The Tropics lipstick & gloss got me because Ms. Geller dais that the lip color was a best seller in her store called #46 and that this color looked good no matter who she used it on. So wanting to see for myself I ordered it. Well, Ms. Geller is true to her word. This lipstick looks corally in the tube. However, when swatched on my hand I see pink, brown, gold, a hint of red, and a bit of bronze. Perhaps it is this mélange of colors that makes it so adaptable. I know I was very pleasantly surprised when I applied it and it looked good. The gloss however is a bit gritty, but does add a nice shine. It can be used on it’s own, but I’m not sure if I ever will utilize it that way.
The Eye Rimz eye liner is a baked liner that can be applied wet or dry and comes with it’s own brush. To get the best and most intense effect I prefer to apply it wet. Just run the tip of the brush in a little water and then run it over the product.
When I used it this way it gave an intense line of color and wore fairly well with little to no smudging. The amount of product is very generous and will most likely last for quite some time.
So, you should help a nice Jewish girl out and help her make a living and buy some of makeup, ok, my lemmingista’s??? Oy Vey!!!
