Laura Geller Lip and Cheek Treats Review and Swatches

Wow look at QVC getting all fast with the shipping!  I told you about the new Laura Geller Lip & Cheek Treat Sets on Monday which is the same day I ordered them and dude they came in my mail on Wednesday.  Awesome shipping time right?

Speaking about shipping, total rant, I had to pay almost $10 bucks to get all three shipped grrrr sometimes QVC ticks me off with their stupid shipping prices.

Anyway!

Jump for the review.

These set me back $29.90 each and include one Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten and one Laura Geller Lip Parfait Lip Gloss.

A little break down action….

QVC sells Blush-n-Brighten with a brush for $31-$35 or by itself for $29.50 so these are the better deal if you’re wondering. For me I just feel like I purchased the blush and got a free lip gloss along with it as the gloss isn’t fabulous so I’m just seeing as a gift with purchase at this point because I can’t consider breaking it down and saying I paid $15 for the blush and $15 for the gloss as lord knows the gloss is NOT worth $15.

I already own a few Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten Blushes and I’m quite happy with them although the ones I have are the sugar variety where as these are somewhat sugar-free, Laura refers to her shimmery products as being sugar or sugar-free. These are a suger-free or shimmer-free product. But I don’t mind although they have a bit of a chalky formula they end up going on very nicely with a beautiful finish and a good pop of color. I got all three shades and each wears better than the less. I was worried one or two might be too dark but they all wear perfectly. Really gorgeous. By the way Berry does have a tiny bit of shimmer too it! They do remind me of MAC Skin Finishes however much more pigmented and alot less shimmer/frost.

The gloss was a disappointment. They are ok but they have a drier formula which makes them more of a lip cream then a gloss. They have good pigmentation, a nice minty flavor, and with a little gloss on top you could make it work.

I like the kits, they are pretty cute although I did feel like it was sort of a clearing out type of deal. Where they slapped things together just to get rid of them. However, this doesn’t make me love them any less. I’d recommend a haul particularly because the blushes are so lovely.

Likey alot and a Muse Approval for purchase!

If you’d like to see what one of the blushes looks like on check my Lancome post today as I am wearing the shade Berry in my photos.
