Laura Geller Colors of Love Collection: Heart Blush-n-Highlighter "Pink Valentine" and Love Me Dew "Lychee Glace"1:00 PM
Laura Geller has some of my all-time favorite blushes, so when I saw her "Colors of Love" collection being presented on QVC a few weeks ago, I had to pick this one up.
The set consists of a baked blush/highlighter and a lip crayon. As I have recently fallen in love with lip crayons, thanks to the likes of Revlon, I was anxious to try one of Laura's as well.
First up, the blush. Look at how absolutely gorgeous this is. The color is called "Pink Valentine", and is a coral base with golden shimmer. The heart highlighter is a shimmery champagne shade, similar (if not identical) to Portofino. This blush is like Nars Orgasm, only brighter.
The lip crayon, Lychee Glace, is a bright coral, without shimmer. This goes on very pigmented, with a nice shine. The crayon itself is adjusted from the base, like other crayons are. A nice, thick crayon, it is hefty enough of a product to apply easily, and doesn't feather into your lines. It is sticky enough to last a majority of the day without a need to reapply, but doesn't dry out your lips like a lot of lasting lip colors are known to do.
Swatches side-by-side of all three shades below. When you swirl the blush together, there is just the added depth of the highlighter, although if you have a small enough blush-brush, you can reach for it alone to highlight your cheek bones. These are some gorgeous shades, for sure! Definitely a nice step up from your average box of chocolates on Valentines Day....go ahead, treat yourself!
