Several days ago the Muse was ohh’ing and ahh’ing over the cuteness that is Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation. It was so tiny and so cute I couldn’t resist snagging one for myself.
Sure am happy I did check out why after the jump!
The Muse’s last experience with Laura Geller wasn’t particularly great. She makes an incredible line of products but for some reason I’m always pushing them to the back burner after trying a powder out a year or two ago and finding it very chalky. The chalky episode prevented me from indulging in anything else ever after that.
When I seen the Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation I loved the packaging so much (and the price, hello $24 bucks) that I decided to indulge. Baked to Go is simply a smaller version of Laura Geller’s popular Balance N Brighten Foundation (this happens to be the product that I experienced chalky bliss with). Count me scared to try this but I couldn’t resist. I’m glad I did purchase it as it’s rather fabulous and all the promises of lightening, brightening, and erasing dullness are all true.
The formula of the powder is mineral oil and paraben-free which is always a plus for those on ingredient watch. The powder creates a super flawless even coverage that brightens up my skin and removes dullness. It’s funky how they designed the packaging as the powder is just a mini baked powder slapped into a spring-fed case which has a removable sponge applicator. Twist open and plenty of product is distributed on the brush so you can easily blend onto face. The product is plenty pigmented that one twist should give you plenty of coverage.
Indeed, as promised it works great as a foundation but I prefer it as a finishing powder or a touch up powder through out the day simply due to it’s wear. It needs a touch up within 2-3 hours of application so I really can’t enjoy it as a foundation as it doesn’t last long enough without having to reapply in between. It’s rather ideal for toting to work and doing a fresh up with as it brightens up any signs of tired, dull skin and creates a nice flawless finish.
It only comes in two shades so I’m unsure if I’d bother recommending it for anyone with skin darker than fair or medium fair.
All in all I absolutely loved this. It’s incredibly travel friendly and does delightful things to my complexion!

If you’re a beauty junkie you probably already knew that QVC had an all day beauty event on Saturday. As tempting as it was to stay inside and just watch beauty on the tube, the weather was too nice to resist the temptation of outdoor play so this Muse Tivo’ed up everything that was on this Saturday and fast forwarded through it early this morning to get a peep at what she missed!
After fast forwarding briefly I came across two or three items I had to have but was somewhat relieved that it wasn’t a ton of must have items.
Here’s what I hauled:
I’m not sure why but I got a bit crazy with all the Laura Geller items offered. It seemed like such a good deal and the Kiss and Bake set. The few times I’ve tried Laura’s baked goodies they have always been a tad chalky but I decided what the heck, might as well re-try ‘em!
As for the Bobbi Brown, obviously you can see why I love these shadows plus I thought it wasn’t too bad a deal for all three.
I’m looking forward to scrolling through the rest of my Tivo’ed recordings to see what else was offered on Saturday!

Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation, yeah well I can’t help but think of how comical the name is here.
Baked..to go? Are we on the same wave length here?
Meet Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation and no it’s not that kind of baked but hey the name can’t be beat. Thanks Laura I’m already breaking out my munchies!
The concept behind this intrigues me. What is it: A portable complexion compact of color-correcting powder that helps to create a smooth, flawless look.
Who is it for: All skin tones and types. It’s a mineral oil, paraben-free formula meant to create a radiant glow on skin all while evening out skin tone, ruddiness, and brighten up dullness. Ohhhh likey! Let’s get baked together!
Instead of the traditional loose powder this actually houses an entire sphere of baked foundation that you swirl a sponge over and apply! Cool right? I was so thrilled with getting baked I ordered myself one….!
I’ve never been a big believer in the original formula of this as it just seemed a glorified foundation powder that was baked (I really like saying baked teehee!) but this version has captured my interest, must be my inner geek that’s loving the gadgetry behind it all!
With Spring well on it’s way I’m always looking for a way to brighten my face up and give my cheeks an innocent blush of color! That’s why I’m loving the Laura Geller Roseberry Baked Blush N Brighten!
Available from QVC this set is $31.82 and comes with a full size Laura Geller Roseberry Baked Blush N Brighten plus a retractable blush brush!
The blush contains several marbleized colors such as rose, copper, and pink cocktailed into a baked blush that gives cheeks a super pretty pink flush with a formula free of parabens!
I’m loving the price of $31.82 USD as it also gets me a retractable brush, can’t complain about that.
The Muse is all about flushing pink cheeks for Spring and this should do the job nicely.
Wishy list anyone?
