Laura Geller on her 11th QVC anniversary

17

Hello Geller Girls,

It’s been my absolute joy sharing my beauty tips and tricks with you for the past 11 years.

And, in celebration of you, the loyal custoLaura & Sarahmer who has welcomed us in to your home and lives all these years, I’ve put together some amazing collections this month, perfect for every occasion, along with several which speak specifically to my core philosophies as a make-up artist for the last 30 years!

One of these pieces is my Brand new Baked Color & Contour Face Palette with Brush. This 80mm palette houses three of my most iconic baked products all in one place.

First – my desert island essential Bronze-n-Brighten, second – Baked Brulee Blush in Cherry Custard, and third – French Vanilla Highlighter.

Many of my longtime Geller Gals know it’s nearly impossible for the Italian artisans to make this size in baked. Remember baked starts its life as a cream and is then baked for 24 hours on a pure terra-cotta tile to sustain the hydration.

There’s no mineral oil, no parabens – it’s gluten-free! To create this palette the artisans had to bake each section individually, similar to baking a layered cake!Tight shot of Palette

Aside from wanting to create a portable palette of my most universal shades, I am bringing this to you especially for our anniversary visit because this palette encompasses a most tried and true philosophy of mine – contour and highlight. The very first item I brought to QVC was a face-restructuring kit back in 1997, because my heritage as a theatre and film make-up artist is in contour and highlighting.

In fact, I recently came across this photo of me standing in front of my Beauty School sign promoting this very technique of Chiara/Scuro (Italian for light/dark), which I’ve used every day since.USE - Laura at Beauty School

This is for every woman, not just women of a particular age. This is for women who want to showcase their bone structure. Anything you want to soften or recede you add bronzer, and for the places you want to lift and attract light, you add highlight. Lastly, pop on the blush for an added touch of youthful vitality and colour to your skin.

I hope you fall in love with this technique as much as I have, if you haven’t already. Looking forward to many more years (God willing) of traveling to the UK and sharing life with you all.USE - Laura in UK

Love always,

Laura

xoxo

    Happy Anniversary, Laura! My husband always says, with a little note of surprise!, “You look nice!”, when I wear your Balance and Brighten foundation. It blends in so beautifully with my own complexion. Thank you for an effective and easy product. I love your colours, especially the eyeshadow palettes. Plus, I like your bubbly personality, and your success is also inspiring. Keep it up! :) Best wishes, Sunita.

    Cant wait for all these new goodies to arrive may buy as Christmas presents to myself so I’m not disappointed lol!!! Thankyou Laura for all your beautiful easy to use cosmetics before I discovered you’re line on qvcuk I was lost in loads of half used items costing me hundreds possibly thousands of pounds of opened foundations and blusher’s that seemed ok but In real lighting are orange or yellow on my porcelain skin. So thanks for your excellent 24 hour Italian artisan baked items having six different colour pigments really helps to stop me looking caked in foundation please can we have some more bright coloured matte lipsticks in coral’s and pink’s. Thankyou have a good weekend xx love Emily

    Happy Anniversary and we look forward to seeing you for many years in the future! I had the same hairstyle as you circa 1982/83 I think, with one side swept towards the face. I think we called it the New Romantic look back in the day!!

    Hi Laura, as you know I am a true GG gal and adore your products. I couldn’t be without your B&B, I have one in fair and one in medium, plus your bronzers, highlighters, mascara, blush (your capri collection with the blush was divine), your eye liners are the only ones I can use that do not make my eyes run. Please never stop creating your products, I sometimes try other brands, but I always return to yours. Congratulations to you, here’s to many more years to come. Love Karen x

    Hi Laura, I’m relatively new to your make up range and so have been buying your sets to try everything out before purchasing the full sizes.
    And of course I love everything I have tried, I am 57 years of age but still have oily skin with redness mostly on the T section, I have come to love all of your products but hopefully will never have to be without your vanilla biscotti soufflé, even my husband tells me how gorgeous I smell when I have it on and my neck feels so smooth I put it everywhere.
    I’m just wondering if you are bringing back the trio of the smaller soufflé as my two 13 year old granddaughters love it and I would love to have the trio as well as buy it for them, I have looked everywhere on line to buy it, but without success, please please bring it back it will make me such a popular grandma
    Love Donna x

    Laura Geller question….

    I was gifted a Laura Geller item a few years ago which I have finally used up – but can’t find a replacement.
    It is a all in one brush with the powder blusher within it – It’s a shimmery bronzer type of powder.
    I LOVE this product and really want to get hold of it again!
    Can you help atall?

    Hi Laura, I love your products!Please, might it be possible to make the GLAM LASH in a NAVY BLUE?
    I have blue eyes and would love a glam lash in navy blue.It would accentuate my blue eyes with my long blonde hair.your make up products are the equivalent in stature to Dennis Basso coats!
    With hugs and kisses,
    Les Ardon-Bayle (f).xxx
