Laura Geller Fresh Brewed Beauty I Want You But I Probably Don’t Need You!

Today’s post is brought to you by Van Damme’s Shia love fest on Jay Leno yo!

No Harm in Van Damme trying to cop a feel of Shia on Jay Leno as far as I’m concerned. If Shia was sitting next to me I’d want to tap it too!

Off the topic of Shia….!

Laura your new Fresh Brewed Beauty Set is on my hit list girl! I love how it comes packaged in a coffee bag. You’re so damn creative with your packaging on these QVC Today Special Value sets.

But let’s chat for a minute…

The thing is, I want this kit but I don’t need…

More freaking Balance-n-Brighten!

OMG Laura please….! I can’t order this set because it has Balance-n-Brighten Foundation in it.

Listen, I love your Balance-n-Brighten. It’s copacetic! Totally HG! But every single QVC Today Special Value you do contains it.

Girl, I have about seven of these compacts, unused. Ok, ok you might say well swap them or E-bay them. But I don’t have the time for that.

Sad sigh….!

How can I say no to this kit though?

The new Laura Geller Fresh Brewed Beauty contains six full size products many of which are new launched like the Baked imPRESSions Blush and Baked imPRESSions Eye Palette.

The set is on auto delivery so you’ll get new seasonal colors of the entire kit in both January and May. Problem? That means two more Balance-n-Brighten Foundations coming your way! Eeep!

Double Applicator Brush

  • Laura Geller Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla
  • Laura Geller Baked imPRESSions Blush in Mauve Mocha Latte (terracotta pink)
  • Laura Geller Baked imPRESSions Eye Palette in Creamy Latte (light brown), Warm Mocha (medium brown), and Dark Roast (dark brown)
  • Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Foundation (choice of shades)
  • Laura Geller Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Cafe au Lait (creamy caramel with coffee aroma and flavor)

The set is $49.95 and $6.22 for shipping. You can order it once or get it on auto-delivery which entitles you to two more shipments of the same set in different shades.

It’s available now for QVC Beauty Insiders at and premieres September 24th on QVC.

Will you be indulging?

I’m honestly having a hard time resisting.

Damn you Laura Geller!

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.

    Lady, let me help you. I will take all that you don’t want. My bestie lives in NYC, so if you like he can pick up anything you’re tired of looking at. I can bribe him with a new RPG or something, as he is a serious gamer.
    But on the real, it’s a trip when *every* kit contains this one thing. Are you trying to tell us something Laura?

  • Cindy

    That packaging is just so cute and cleaver! Although her makeup may make me look better in the morning, it sure won’t make me feel better, that’s coffees job!

  • Shelby

    I’d love to try the balance and brighten, I love my skin to be glowy. You should do a giveaway.

    • the Muse

      hey Shelby kinda excludes everyone if I do 🙂 they come in a variety of shades and I just have one shade so it would be a giveaway for people that only can enjoy the color and not for everyone to enjoy…great for those who match my tone but sucks for everyone else. That’s why I never really did a giveaway for the extras I have of the compact.

  • Laura

    You are having the same problem I”M having! Do I want it? Yes! Do i NEED it?? No.

    Some of her blushes are so HG to me, and love BnB, but don’t need it (it didn’t even say SPF??)

    Kinda want the highlighter – really want the gloss, don’t need anymore brown eyeshadows from ANYONE right now.

    I’m on the fence

    • the Muse

      DITTO! don’t NEED bnb but everything else is a big YES but can’t justify getting three more bnb compacts ugh seriously?!

  • kiwikiwidragon

    Need is such a subjective word….goodness knows I don’t need anymore…but damn it! I want it! Simple as that 🙂

  • Boone

    I hardly ever buy QVC beauty TSVs because they always include foundation, and I have extremely difficult to match skin tone. They put foundation in every TSV because color cosmetics alone won’t justify a price point that makes the TSV profitable (well, as profitable as they want it to be). If it was only a shadow palette, a blush, and a lippie, they probably could only charge around $30. Throw a foundation in, and for the production cost of only one extra item they can charge $50+ for the kit. I can understand that it’s a business decision, but it totally sucks–I’d probably have bought 90% of the TSV kits they’ve offered in the last three years if the kits had been color cosmetics only. 🙁

  • Ruth

    have you seen the expendables yet? it has JCVD and all of my fav action hero’s in it! it’s like the first one with blow ’em, shoot ’em up’s, but still fun and fantastic

    • the Muse

      tbh no it really isn’t my type of movie…I’m so not a shoot ’em type a girl lol!

  • lilloulou

    Well, . . . My first thought was “OOOH, I need that!” But. . I have extra BnB, The eyeshadow just looks kinda so,so. And I love her blushes, but I have so much blush I’ll never run out. The only thing I would really be excited about would be the highlighter. And I think I’m set with that too.
    Just a thought about the extra stock you have, a couple of years ago the girls at my church took our extra (unopened) makeup and made little makeup baggies up and donated the bags to the local battered womens shelter. Even if its not the perfect shade, I’m sure there is someone that could use the extras!

    • the Muse

      same for me on the bnb lilloulou! that’s really nice…I typically donate much of my unused stuff to my mum’s senior group. They absolutely love getting new makeup bits and bobs 🙂

  • Liz

    Muse, thanks so much for sharing! I’m so excited, I’ve been just NEEDING the highlighter in French Vanilla, and was ready to shell out more than half the price for just that. But now the highlighter, PLUS a blush, eye-pallet, foundation, and lip gloss for fifty bucks?! This is insane! Pinch me!!

    • the Muse

      hey liz my pleasure girl! I really want it myself but I have SO much BNB at the moment to justify ;-D hehehehe!

  • diane

    i already got this set & did a video on it. lady if u like coffee u need this. the gloss smells/tastes fantastic. the eyeshadow and blush have coffee bean imprints!! they colors feel more pigmented then usual, if thats even possible LOL. do u know what the auto ship colors will be?

  • Isis

    I don’t need but I want it, we this side of the pond have a LG tsv next week, it’s the glow and behold collection… september! so I’ll be waiting till Christmas when it’s rumoured we’ll get this one. 🙁
