She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Laura Geller's Eye Rimz Baked Wet/Dry Eye Accents

The next item in my Laura Geller haul is one of her beautiful baked eyeshadows! This one is the shade Cobalt Blue; it comes in other shades such as Bewitching Bronze and Hocus Pocus (Rich emerald green).
The packaging for this shadow is just a bit bigger than a MAC shadow, it is 1.2 grams of product. I love that the lid comes with a mini half sized mirror!
These are available for $26.50 on sites like QVC, Laura Geller, and at Ulta Beauty.
This shadow is baked in Italy and has beautiful swirls of dark royal blue, shimmery pearl and silver, and irredescent smokey black. This shadow can be used in so many ways to create a wide variety of looks.
These can be used wet or dry, mixed, or seperate, and all over the lid or as an accent.
Wet: Mist your cleam palm with a little water or makeup setting spray. Now tap your brush into it. Dab the moist brush into the shadow to pickup the pigment. Pack the shadow onto your lid. The end result is pure metallic color.
Dry: Apply an eyeshadow base all over the lid. Tap your brush into the shadow anto pick up the pigment. Pack the shadow on your lid. the end result is rich and dramatically smokey color.
Applying this product wet or dry creates different looks, but the colors you use in this shadow can also have new effects on the look. Swirling the brush in all the colors creates a deep smokey eye. You can also tap your brush in one color at a time to build a full lid, crease, and browbone eye look.
I mentioned before that this can be used as an accent. Although I didn't take a picture of it, this shadow also comes with a small crease-like brush. It is perfecrtly sized to pick up the shadow and small enough to pinpoint where you want the shadow; like around the rim of your eye as a dry eyeliner accent.
This shadow is great for day to night looks. Apply it lightly using all the colors in the shadow for a blue and pearl eye with black accents for the day. Easily transfer into a night look by reapplying the shadow with a mix of all the colors!
Versatile and packed with rich pigment payoff, this is a great product!

**If you would like to see this on me, I am wearing it as an allover smokey lid color in the swatch found on this nail review:  http://vixenslovee.blogspot.com/2011/09/pure-ice-nail-polishes.html
