So you’re not so hot in the eyeliner department eh? It’s ok, have no fear, the Muse here to save the day.
I’m not a fabulous eye liner queen me self in all honesty. Liquid I’m rubbish with, gel I’m ok with, and pencil I’m decent with. Lining my eyes isn’t my strongest point and I normal over do it unless my eye look is simple since I always look overly made up with say aqua eye shadow on and a black liner…..am I the only one that suffers so?
My discovery for simple lining? Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette!

Laura Geller Marble Cakes Baked Eyeshadow and Liner Duo makes it so easy to shade, line, and define my eyes with a great little kit that even includes a dual ended brush. Likey!
The Muse enjoys simplicity packaged in one box don’t you?
Jump for it!
Although Laura Geller Baked Eyeshadow and Liner Duos are readily available on Sephora for $23 bucks, the Muse highly recs checking ‘em out on QVC (Item Number A86595) as they contain not only a baked shadow/liner duo but also come prepackaged with a dual ended brush for application.
After my foray into the world of Laura Geller’s Baked products with a kit I recently purchased I’m kinda lusting all things from the line. These duos are super as they are affordable and have great color payoff. The shadow comes housed in a chic black compact with mirror. They are split down the middle with the shadow on one side and the liner on the other. Honestly, if you’re wanting to you can easily use the liner side as a contrasting shade of shadow as well. The shadow side has a slightly sparkle finish where as the liner is more matte but not difficult to work with as it blends rather beautifully. Both shades are super smooth, silky, and very easy to work with. Could be the baked formula but they sport a beautiful formula. The basic idea is to use the shadow side as a color wash all over lid and crease and follow up with the liner to define eyes. Lining with the enclosed color proves a little difficult since the shadow shade is so similar in color however it does end up working very well when used wet as you’ll get a bolder more dramatic finish. Color payoff on the shades I tried were very good.
The kit also includes a dual ended brush which has a fluffy shadow shader on one side and a flat angled liner brush on the other. Both brushes are good quality with super soft bristles and no shedding.
The colors I tried were SugarSky/BlueBerry and Unearthed/Dark Chocolate. Sugarsky is a shimmering sky blue and Blueberry is a deep navy blue. Unearthed is a sparkling golden brown and Dark Chocolate as per it’s name is a velvety dark chocolate.
For my look below I used Unearthed all over my lid and followed up by lining my lower and bottom lash line with Dark Chocolate. I didn’t wet Dark Chocolate so the results aren’t as dramatic as they could be.
Overall, these are great little shadows and quite a super deal if you purchase the set for $26. Sephora has a total of four shades including a green combo that I’m wanting to indulge in where a the QVC sets are only available in the shades I have reviewed and swatched for you here. I liked these very much and deem them worthy of a Muse Approval.
Loves ‘em! Great deal, beautiful pigmentation, and superb formula to work with.
Ok, let me tell you a story. A hundred years ago or so I purchased my first MAC Technakohl and promptly fell in love. To this day I still adore Technakohl but I also hate it. Dontcha just love having a love hate relationship with makeup? That so means you’re totally a psychotic product junkie like me, yay us!
So let me explain. Technakohl…omg awesome liner. This is such a dreamy, creamy formula that lines my eyes so perfectly but don’t let it wear down. I swear it’s probably good for three uses tops before the pencil quickly loses it’s sharp edge. Now what? Well nothing. You can’t do anything. There isn’t anyway you can sharpener a dull Technakohl liner. How can something so great be so incredibly crummy.
Someone suggested to be that I can roll the liner between a napkin or paper to sharpen it…yea well people…I am so not that coordinated…I tried and ended up with a mess of black swirls on a piece of paper.
Forget all this though.
MAC I am so sorry but you’ve been replaced by the joys of Laura Geller I-Care Eyeliner, damn straight she cares. She cares so much she included a sharpener and a smudger! My god I heard the angels just sing (in my head that is).
Jump ahead to learn more about the brand new Laura Geller I-Care Eyeliner and why the Muse thinks it’s the best thing since peanut butter on toast.
What is it?
It’s a super, smooth, long wearing, water resistant eye liner that applies like a dream. No skipping, no going back to re-line, just simple one line perfection. This is what love is. The formula is so dreamy and creamy and manages to glide across my lash line in a quick, flawless stroke so I don’t have to go back and reline or deal with skippage.
But let’s forget the formula for a minute and concentrate on the fact that it has a built in sharpener tucked inside the end cap. Laura you’re a master mind! You’ve solved world peace in my makeup world. I can’t believe a soft kohl liner housed in a plastic pencil has a sharpener, it’s a gift…from the gods above! The sharpener is really tiny but it manages to create a perfect point each and every single time. It’s like getting a new liner every time you sharpener! I admit I purposely squashed the end of my pencil so I could try it out and it created a perfect sharp point for me. I swear my makeup life is complete thanks to this handy, dandy sharpener.
Brand new again!
Ok, enough raving about that.
It also has a flexible, soft spongy smudger that’s ideal for smudging out the liner and creating an air of mystery to eyes.
If all this isn’t enough let me tell you that Laura Geller I-Care Eyeliner is sold in a pair for $22 bucks!
Have I sold it to you yet?
Get it. Now.
You’ll be all the happier that you aren’t stuck with a dull pointed liner that you can’t sharpener!
Laura Geller I-Care Eyeliner total loves it moment for the Muse and of course a mega Muse Approval for purchase.

Here’s the deets, the kit includes all these fabulous shades of yummy color that will go down so beautifully in the Fall! I was sporting this all weekend and got tons of comments about it. If you wear warm colors well you’ll want to get this kit.
The kit includes:
- Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Apricot Berry
- Laura Geller Balance-n-Bronze
- Laura Geller Spackle Cream
- Laura Geller Eye Rimz Baked Marbleized Illusion Shadow in Bewitching Bronze
- Laura Geller Dream Creams in Apricot Berry
- Retractable lip brush, Eye Rimz Brush, and Double Ended Face and Blush Brush
The kit contains everything you need for a complete face look and of course you can spice things up to create a few looks since the Dream Creams palette has a few color selections to use. All the color cosmetics in the kit are richly pigmented, silky smooth, and blend beautifully. The completed look is very warm and rich, elegant even and ideal for Fall in my opinion. Although it’s Summer I’m already counting the ways I’ll make use of this when the cooler weather sets in.
Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten Blush is an incredible product and I’m the pride owner of a few shades. This is a silky smooth blush that works much the same as a MAC MSF but minus the heavy shimmer, glittery finish. The color that comes with this kit is a swirled peach, berry, golden beige combination. Brightens up cheeks with a flush of peach!
I’m not a fan of Laura Geller Balance-n-Bronze as the bronze side is a tad too sheer and a bit chalky however the product is split so it houses the bronzer on one and the brighten powder on the other. Laura’s Balance-n-Brighten
is a fabulous product that brightens the face and erases dullness for a flawless look. This part of the split pan I like but I could take or leave the bronzer side.
Laura Geller Eye Rimz Baked Marbleized Illusion Shadow in Bewitching Bronze is a rich, deep chocolate brown. This is an incredible color that works fantastic on my doe brown eyes. The shade has a tiny twinkle of gold that’s very subtle and pretty.
And finally the Laura Geller Dream Creams Palette (my favorite item) is a quad of four creamy lip colors that apply beautifully well. These are pigmented little gems of lip color and can be used together or separately to create a full, luscious pout!
Also included with the kit is Laura’s Speckle Cream for prepping and priming prior to applying makeup and three brushes. All the brushes in the kit are quite good quality for the price.
All in all I think the kit is an absolute steal and a rather great item for Fall. Even with shipping it still ends up a really great deal. I highly suggest picking one up if you like warmer shades. The kit is undeniably gorgeous and Muse Approved for purchase! If you’re interested the kit is under item number A90709 on QVC.
Here’s the completed look using the kit:
Loves it, simply loves it!
