Review/FOTD: Laura Geller Baked Impressions Eye Duo in Fine Wines

C: I recently gave in and ordered the August Cohorted Beauty Box (for the full post click here) and one of the items inside was this eyeshadow duo by Laura Geller. I have seen these beauties around, but never invested in them/found them particularly exciting so it was nice to receive an item I wouldn’t normally try. You can buy this from Amazon for £9.95 here.

The packaging itself isn’t anything too exciting, but it is sturdy meaning you can throw it in your make up bag without being too worried about it. It also has a tiny mirror inside which is a nice addition but not that useful really as its so small!

When you open it up it is embossed with a beautiful floral/grape print, which is in-keeping with its name “fine wines”. The colours are also beautiful for Autumn and although not normally something I would pick for myself I actually really liked them!

And here is the smokey eye look I created using them! I added a winged liner for extra definition and I really like it! The eyeshadows are easy to blend and are super pigmented, they also last all day without creasing/disappearing!

So overall I am really impressed with these eyeshadows and pleased that my Cohorted box introduced me to a new brand. Have any of you guys tried anything from Laura Geller? What would you suggest trying next?! #twolittleowls

The August Cohorted Beauty Box! 

C: Hi guys, an exciting day today…. I finally got my August cohorted box! I say finally as I ordered this on like the 20th July or something before they went out of stock and I’ve been super excited to get it! Apparently they were all dispatched on the 10th, so really delivery was super quick! So here is what I got:


So first up, I love the packaging! Sleek but looks super high end and beautiful! Not normally keen on the whole black/white theme but it works well and I enjoy the ribbon! Everything is also safely encased in shredded black paper to keep all your goodies safe!


Bare Minerals Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper RRP £15 – basically a skin perfector that also helps extend the wear of your foundation. This is one of the items I am most excited about trying! I haven’t used anything similar to this before and I love bare minerals as a brand so a thumbs up from me!

Bare Minerals Soft Focus Face Brush RRP £20 – another item I am pleased to receive, I love new make up brushes! This is super soft and I can’t wait to try it out! It seems like the perfect powder brush.


Cargo Eye Colour Quad Palette RRP £10 – when I first opened this I assumed from the colours that this was a blusher/bronzer palette! They don’t seem very eyeshadow like colours to me… But I haven’t tried anything from this brand before so I shall certainly be trying these out!

Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan Zhi Body Cream RRP £6 – I was a little disappointed with this addition to the box just because it is tiny! I don’t think I will even get two uses out of this, which isn’t much use when deciding if you like a product! I have however used Molton Brown body lotions before so I know I will love this, but if you hadn’t it would be hard to get a feel for the product!


Laura Geller Baked Impressions Duo Eyeshadow RRP £15 – I actually love the colours in this and don’t have anything similar in my collection, so I shall definitely be doing a FOTD using this!

So there we have the August Cohorted box, which contains £66 worth of products so is great value for money! My only criticism is that I got 6 eye shadows! I feel like there could have been a little more variety to the box, as I would have preferred a more diverse selection of products! What do you guys think of the Cohorted box? #twolittleowls
