Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminators in Ballerina, Charming Pink, Gilded Honey and Peach Glow which are utterly beautiful both in terms of design and product quality. Gilded Honey is my favourite and I actually prefer this to Champagne Pop!

I love the golden highly pigmented highlight which sits so beautifully on cheekbones. Each shade is beautiful, for warmer skin tones go for Gilded Honey and for cooler tones try Charming Pink. Peach Glow and Ballerina are great for any skin-tone.SheHeartsBeautySheHeartsBeauty2016SheHeartsBeautySheHeartsBeautySheHeartsBeautySheHeartsBeauty


Pinks, Peaches, Golds, Reds and Bronzes are wonderful colours to opt for during Summer months such as warm shimmery eyes, rose-gold highlights, pretty warm lips and radiant dewy looking skin.

Being experimental with your makeup wardrobe is the ‘beauty’ of makeup and spritzing on fruity and floral scents.

      The Michael Kors scents are light and last for about 2-3 hours also, however I tend to spritz my perfume as the day goes on anyhow 🙂

      Laura xo

  • Amazing beauty collection!
    I spent the last 2 hours checking all the makeup brands I could think of and see who is cruelty free and who still tests on animals. Unfortunately, my list of safe brands became very small.

    • The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is lovely, the brand overall have impressed me!

      The Benefit eyebrow products are gorgeous! The launch was fantastic and learnt to much.

      Agreed there, Smashbox’s palette is a pretty one and you can create a very natural or dramatic look with it, always fun to experiment!

  • What a thorough and wonderful review! Wow, you did such a great job with organizing your favs! 👏🏻

    I really love some of your favorite products too! For instance, Tarte The Sculptor and Clinque Cheek Pop in Berry Pop (in fact, that’s the exact shade I’m wearing today!)

    What a great job, Laura! I’m bookmarking this post so I can go back to it later to compare our opinions!

    • Thank you so much Kayta! I’m really glad you enjoyed my review, I enjoyed putting it together for you all.

      The Tarte The Sculptor is one I use daily, it’s great for contouring. The Clinique Cheek Pop is lovely, really pretty products 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the feature 🙂

      Have a lovely rest of the weekend and week ahead!
