A Review of Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow and Highlight in Amethyst Skies: Good for Day to Night

Laura_Geller_Baked_Eyeshadow I am a sucker for purple eyeshaodw. With my chestnut brown eyes I am always looking for things to make them appear like they glow from within and purple usually does that for me. So when Laura Geller sent over a Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow and Highlight in Amethyst Skies ($24, amazon.com), I knew I had to try it.

Color/Pigmentation: 3.5/5 

The colors of the quad are beautiful. I really like the dark, almost indigo purple shade with subtle multi-colored glitter. It’s gorgeous with a lot of depth. There’s also a more matte violet, and a light lilac. The highlighter is a shimmery peachy pink. I found the pigmentation better on my eyelid than when I swatched for pictures. It took a few swipes to get a swatch that looked like the pan color, but I had no problem getting a beautiful color on my eyes. Laura_Geller_Amethyst_skies

Durability: 4/5

The durability of this product was good. After applying the eyeshadow (along with primer), it lasted all day. The compact is also very durable. I dropped it on the floor without the eyeshadow breaking apart or the mirror shattering. Laura_Geller_Amethyst_Skies_On

Texture/Finish: 5/5

Baked eyeshadows are one of my favorites. The texture of this eyeshadow was relatively soft, and I liked the finish of all the eyeshadows. One thing I really appreciated was that you could easily achieve a multi-dimensional look with this compact. Often times we see palettes with shadows of all the same finish ( all shimmer, all glitter, all matte), but personally I prefer to use a palate with several difference finished. I like that this palette included shimmer, sheen, and glitter. Laura_Geller_On_Eye Laura_Geller_Eyes_Side

Bottom Line

I really like Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow and Highlighter in Amethyst Skies. It has a lovely array of multi-finish eyeshadows. It’s durable, and you can create a great look in a matter minutes. This is definitely the kind of thing that can transition from day to night, so I’ll definitely be keeping it in my makeup bag.
