One of the items was this Precious Stones Eye Shadow Trio ($36). I love Laura Geller's baked makeup, and this shadow trio was everything I had anticipated.
Each of the handmade, highly-pigmented shadows in the trio have been baked for 24 hours and can be applied wet or dry. The three sumptuous shades were selected to complement each other for a neutral look. Wear the lighter shades for a soft, daytime look and add the darker shade for extra drama.
From let to right in the trio, the shades are:
- Vanilla, an ideal highlighter that instantly illuminates and brightens up eyes without a lot of pigment;
- Topaz, soft, scrumptious mocha mousse, with a shimmer of golden flecks;
- Garnet, a rich wine with a softly shimmered glow.
The shades all look nice together, and they have a lovely, soft texture that clings to the skin. I have not applied them with a damp brush, but I assume that would intensify the colors. The presentation of Precious Stones is unusual. It comes in what looks like a little black hard-shell eyeglass case - very handy for travel and it protects the shadows.
You can purchase the Precious Stones Eye Shadow Trio at Laura Geller's Web site. I did a quick scan and didn't see it at Beauty.com or QVC, two other Laura Geller sources.
