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.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
