Laura Geller is a brand that’s kind of been on my radar for a while thanks to its availability at QVC, but it’s only due to it’s relatively recent launch into Debenhams that’s it’s becoming a lot more accessible, mostly since a lot of people prefer to check out products in-store, if they can. If you’re unfamiliar with Laura Geller, the Perfectly Pink Collection is a great place to start since it’s a decent representation of the brand and the sort of products they have in their collection.
The Laura Geller Perfectly Pink Collection contains five full-sized products and one brush. The complexion products include both a primer and a foundation, which I really like as normally with these kits they tend to focus more on colour products above everything else. You also get a lipstick, a blusher and a mascara, so basically everything you need to create a basic, pretty look, although obviously you have to like pink! The Spackle Colour-Correcting Under Makeup Primer is a lovely, hydrating product that very much acts like a light colour-correcting, as it just tones down both redness and ashiness without looking heavy. It isn’t a full-blown colour corrector, so if you have very red skin then you’ll need to stick with your green and yellow correctors, but it definitely works as an overall skin leveller. The Balance ‘n’ Brighten Baked Correcting Foundation is a great product (I reviewed it here a while ago, but as I had too dark a shade it was a bit tricky to make the most of it) that gives a lovely level of coverage without looking heavy, powdery or flat. In this particular kit, the shade you get is Medium (pictured is Porcelain which I was kindly sent in its place) which is probably the only downside of this whole set as obviously there’ll be a lot of people who Medium will be too dark or too light for, so that isn’t great. You get a decent applicator brush in the set though, which is a major plus.
The colour products include the gorgeous Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Blush in Rosewater, which is a very pretty, warming pink that’s great for that “been out for a walk in the cold” flushed finish. My least favourite in the set is the Color Brilliance Lipstick in shade Wink, which has a great consistency, but the pink shade is a little too dull and deep for me – it’s pretty, but it doesn’t really suit me. The final product is the StyleLash Mascara, which is a great and easy mascara that probably won’t blow your mind, but it’s also not bad either – it gives length, definition and a bit of a volume making it a great all-rounder. The set is worth over £100, so for £45 you are getting fantastic value on a kit that contains a great selection of thoroughly decent products without any filler add-ons. It’s a Debenhams exclusive and stock is low, so if you fancy getting yourself one, you can find it here – link – but you might want to get moving!
