Laura Geller 5 Piece Vanilla Nudes Baked Colour Collection - 224564
Buying this kit for the second time!
This is the second time I am buying this kit as I can't find another bronzer or blusher quite like it. I particularly like the highlighter as part of the blusher, which when swept over the cheeks, gives a lovely shimmer and definition. The mascara is fantastic! I don't know why so many people have commented on this! It comes off fine with an oil based make-up remover or baby oil. The lipstick is a lovely colour as well. My only (tiny) issue is that the bronzer and blusher are part of this kit and are not sold separately, as I don't really use eyeshadow. However, for the price I don't mind this!

MY GO TO COLLECTION
May I please take the opportunity to write a second review on this collection.
I bought the collection back in August 2011 and at that time was a little dubious about it but had to have it as all of Laura's collection are terrific value and so well made, and of course there was the fab summer packaging in cream (not to be missed).
Loved the B&B of course and it was nice to have a waterproof mascara in my make up as I don't usually wear waterproof mascaras. The eye shadow is beautiful the colours are fab and the eye rimz have black goldy smokey colours in there, very sexy. The lipstick compliments the smokey eye and the texture is beautiful. I have found myself using these for most of the autumn and winter of 2011 and 2012/13 as with the divine highlighter compact which also contains two very discrete blushers which I use together.
In fact the reason for this review is I have found that these have been my most used colours since I bought the collection which I initially thought may have been too nude for me. I never expected them to be my go to colours throughout autumn and winter as I though the collection to be more of a summer look on first sight.
After a good 2 years of this being my everyday go to kit the B&B has hardly moved there is so much product left and in fact since using B&B have only ever reach the tile on the bottom of one compact. The eye shadow and the rimz you can see I have used but there is so much left at least another good year I would say. The highlighter is the same although slightly more of the highlighter used as this goes on ever single day makeup days or not, and the lipstick is about half way down.
Laura gets things perfect the whole collection is so wearable and such good value for money.
Just shows you, get every kit going she is so on the button
Thank you Laura

Not worth it. Only the lipstick is good.
I bought this with such hope as I loved the colours in the set and what looked like easy to use products.
The truth is I absolutely hated it.
The foundation looks cakey and show ups every imperfection and fine line on the face. The face doesn't glow, it just looks matte, dry and flakey.
The mascara clumps eyelashes together and it is a real job to get off.
The blusher looked wrong on my complexion and gave a horrid finish.
The eyeshadow also looked dry when applied and made my eyes look aged and tired.
The one saviour to this set was the lovely lipstick. Smooth application, kept my lips moisturised and hydrated all day. The shade would suit any skin type.
I was very disappointed the products didn't live up to previous reviews and description.
The marble effect of the products can't ensure even perfect finish on eyelids, cheeks or face; you'll get lighter and darker patches on the face.
I'm back on my Mally products now.
It was the first time I returned beauty products to QVC my Laura Geller set just didn't cut it!

Especially the mascara
1. The lipstick gives a neutral healthy colour and is very moisturising.
2. I have tried almost every expensive "waterproof " mascara. This mascara actually lengthens & defines lashes whilst giving a natural gloss and does NOT budge, only comes off with waterproof eye make up remover.
3. Balance and brighten gives effortless natural coverage.
4. The striped thing is a blush and highlighter,
5. Eyeliner and shadow is excellent too but apply the eyelines with an angles eyeliner brush for brill results"
