Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette Review and Swatches

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… I the only one that suffers so?

My discovery for simple lining? Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette!

My first lining experience happened to be with a powder liner from Revlon about 75 years or so ago. I remember it like it was yesterday though as it was the best eye liner experience of my young life. To this day I haven’t forgotten the joys of that little palette of powder black liner and have ever since tried to recreate the experience of simple, awesome eye lining with powder.

Obviously someone understands the joys and simplicity of lining your eyes with a powder and here in Laura Geller created her new Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette.

The new Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette contains four shimmering gems of baked color for lining, defining, and creating dramatic eye looks with a simple powder formula that’s easy to work with and mess free.

The shadows come in a flip top sturdy cardboard box with mirror and dual sided brush. You get four shades which are Dutch Chocolate (rich chocolate brown), Plum Pudding (velvet plum), Blue Sugar (midnight blue), and Black Forest (shimmering black). Each shade has a shimmer finish and I’m positive if you wanted to get daring you could go right ahead and use them as a shadow.

The formula is pigmented enough to work dry but can easily be used wet as well for a more dramatic look or for ease of application if you’re used to working in a “wet” medium. Personally, I like the palette because it’s a powder as I find lining with a powder is a snap during application and goes smoother and easier for me than it would with liquids or creams. I notice these allow me to go easily from a super thin line to a thicker one without creating a major mess in the process. One reason I love to work with powder so much is because it looks more natural and less harsher than other mediums. The powder manages to accentuate my eye and create a more natural finish.

If you’re looking to simplify your lining experience I recommend picking one of these little guys up. You get four shades for $34 dollars from QVC (A87990). The set is exclusive to QVC at the moment but will become available after November from other locations such as Sephora.

Overall, if you’re a bit of a newbie to lining your eyes or just like a little variety this is an ideal kit to pick up.

Loves it!

    I love the blue in this kit, very pretty!

    I find gels the easiest to line with these days. I actually find pencils more difficult for the upper lash line than gel!

      hey dd 😀 Gel is a great one. I’m always a tad over done though when I’m wearing a bolder shade of shadow and a gel liner which is when I prefer powder. I tend to wear gels with softer shades like gold!

    This is a gorgeous pallet!

    I’m the best with liquid liners with felt tip, I can put on eyeliner in 1 smooth movement.
    Gels i’m a dork with, i mess up my whole eye LOL.
    Powder i’m okay with, but I always use my dear ‘ol liquid liner.
