For any good paint job, prepping is key. You need to prime and you need to invest in quality brushes. It’s the same for walls as it is for your face. Personally, I happen to hate painting walls. But my face? A whole different story. I look forward to painting it every day! And Laura Geller thinks there’s even one more trick that woman can borrow from painting 101. For a truly flawless job, before priming, she also recommends a good spackle. And I’m telling you, if Laura Geller recommends something, we should listen!
You see, Laura is one of the queen’s of QVC. In fact, her line is the second best selling cosmetic line at QVC and has just celebrated its ten-year anniversary of being on the channel. It’s easy to see why; she’s both extremely likable and knowledgeable. Millions of women trust in her for simple, multi-functional, easy-to-use beauty solutions. Purchasing a product from her line comes with the added bonus of pretty much knowing, this product works. Our review team was lucky to get to try two spackles from her line of five formulas.
Their Eye Spackle is a fixative for shadows and blocks out any kind of eyelid discoloration. Imagine creating a clean slate, an even base. It’s also gives your shadow something to cling to, which allows it to both apply better and last longer, while cutting the dreaded creasing off at the path. It even provides broad spectrum sun protection. Read the comments for my detailed thoughts about this miracle in a pot, but here’s a hint: I think this may just be my favorite prep product that I have ever used!
The Lip Spackle took a bit more getting used to, but once I did, I was very pleased with the results. Like the eye spackle, this is a fixative product. Again, creating a smooth canvas for smudge proof lip color and providing broad spectrum sun protection. In addition, it provides a bit of moisture and conditions. (Really is there anything worse than lipstick on dry lips?) And most exciting to me, it prevents feathering and bleeding. If you’re a bright lipstick wearer like me, you know feathering can ruin your look quicker than anything.
What about you Review Team? Were Laura Geller’s spackles so good that you started thinking about drop cloths and sponge rollers too?
