T’is the season for brands to bombard us with amazing holiday collections. They’re going to be coming out left, right & center. We’re all going to be broke by the time the new year rolls around – but t’is the life of a makeup lover & avid collector. Laura Geller was generous enough to send me their holiday collection! I’m truly blown away by all the amazing products & I hope you’ll find something you love too!

The Starlet Collection
The Starlet collection of 5 different eyeshadow palettes that resemble books. Each “book” is inspired by legendary ladies of Hollywood – Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe & many more! Each palette has 10 eyeshadows each & are available on QVC.com for $109.98 USD. These palettes are full of baked eyeshadows – which can either be used dry (for a more natural look) or wet (for a more dramatic look).
I love that the eyeshadows correspond with the outside packaging. Also, the fact that each palette represents their legendary woman. You have everything from neutrals, to warm tones to even cool tones in this collection. I think this collection would be fantastic to gift to someone who may just be starting out with makeup or heck, even keep it for yourself!
Hollywood Blushing Baked Blush Trio
This travel-friendly palette contains 4 of their best-selling baked blushes. The pigmentation in these blushes are incredible! There’s two marbled blushes & a two-in-one that has a cute set of lips imprinted in the middle (Pink Grapefruit, Bora Bora/Maui & Honeysuckle). The shades are stunning & I think would look nice on a wide range of skin tones. This palette can be found on the Laura Geller website or Ulta.com for $32.00 USD.
Let There Be Light Baked Gelato Swirl Collection
This collection has 4 highlighters – Fairy Dust (Limited Edition), Peach Glow, Ballerina & Gilded Honey. This box also comes with a dual-ended brush. This collection can be found on QVC.com for $49.96 USD. These highlighters are insanely pigmented & give off the most beautiful glow! I’ve heard so many people rave about Laura Geller highlighters before; but never had a chance to try them for myself! They really are worth the hype!
Hollywood Lights 6 Piece Collection
This collection comes with their Hydrating Spackle Under Makeup Primer, Baked Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation (Fair or Medium), Baked Blush (Pink Grapefruit), Color Luster Lip Gloss (City Lights) & Hollywood Glam Eyeshadow Palette as well as a dual-ended brush. You can get this entire collection the Laura Geller website or Ulta.com for $59.00 USD.
The Diamonds Color Luster Lip Gloss Duo
This cute little duo of their hi-def top coat glosses comes already packaged like a little tree ornament. These lip glosses are infused with light reflecting pearls & lip conditioning Kendi oil. The formula is silky, non-sticky & give off a high shine making your lips look plumper. This duo can be found on the Laura Geller website or Ulta.com for $13.00 USD. They also have another duo called “The Pearls” which has more of a peach shade.

This collection is truly wonderful. From the highlighters to the eyeshadows to even lipgloss (and if you know me, you know I don’t like lipglosses). The eyeshadows are obviously my favorite part (I’m obsessed with eyeshadow palettes). I think this collection fits so many different people – neutral makeup, bold makeup & everything in between. Is there anything from this collection you’re going to get or maybe gift to someone else? Let me know in the comments!
