Laura Geller Spackle: Tinted Under Makeup Primer in Bronze Review

I got a sample of Laura Geller’s Spackle in my October Birchbox. I love Laura Geller blushes, but I was worried that the primer was so dark since I’m a shade or two lighter than snow white.

Even out of the tube the product looks pretty dark (image above is in natural light, no flash). Fortunately when you blend the product out its completely sheer. I don’t notice any bronzing or shimmer on my face after application. What I do notice is outstanding wear on my foundation. The product really does act as a spackle, once I put it on my foundation, blush etc does not budge.

I usually wear Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, and the Laura Geller product is far better as far as keeping my foundation on my face all day. I do like the finish on the Smashbox product a lot better, but the reason I wear a primer is to keep my makeup in place, so I think I’ll be re-purchasing the Spackle when the time comes.

Instead of bronze, I think I’ll try it in Champange as it will be better suited to my skintone.

The primer is available here at Laura Geller’s website for $25.00.

The Hunt for the Perfect Mascara: Buxom Lash Edition

I’m on the hunt for the perfect mascara. One that lengthens without looking spidery and one that thickens without clumping. In other words, I’m trying to do the impossible. Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash mascara has been much buzzed about, so I decided to give it a chance. I was scared to try Buxom Lash, mostly because of the scary looking plastic bristle wand.

Stiff bristle brushes have never worked for me in the past, they don’t give me enough length and they clump like crazy. Buxom Lash is the exception to the rule, because this brush is amazing. The hourglass shape makes it easy to apply, and it never gets on my lids like all my other mascaras. I love that the top of the brush is domed, it makes it easy to grab the lashes at the edges of my lid.

No Mascara

With Buxom Lash

 Overall, this is a great everyday mascara. It doesn’t make my lashes a million miles long, but it holds a curl and doesn’t clump, smear, or flake, which is all you can really ask for.

PRICE: $19.00
