TK Maxx is a beauty junkie’s hotspot for the best beauty buys of the year. They always have some of the best beauty deals from both high end brands and drugstores. I managed to bag this gorgeous Laura Geller set for just £25 which is such a bargain. It would be perfect as a gift as it comes in such beautiful packaging.
The set is called Candlelight. It contains a bronzer/foundation, a blush shade, a lipstick and a little brush. All this for £25!! This set it the first I have tried from Laura Geller and it has left me wanting to try more.
First up in the box you get this sort of beige looking compact. For the average Brit this would probably work really nicely as a powder foundation. But having skin comparable to Casper the Ghost this is just a little too tan for me. However I have used this as a bronzer/contour and it works really well. The coolness to it makes it a pale girl’s dream bronzer. I love the little compact it comes in too. It looks so chic and the tiny mirror is a nice touch. It is plastic but feels very much robust.
The next product is the blush which is in the shade guava. It comes in this little spiral shape like the iconic Laura Geller highlighters. The shade is pretty bright but absolutly stunning and well pigmented. The first time I used this I was a too heavy handed and walked around like a clown all day. Bright shades like these are perfect for so many people. With darker skin tones it looks more like a natural flush and with paler people the pink is more contrasted and looks equally as nice. I actually love the swirl shape of this and of course how photogenic it is! Truly a blogger’s dream product.
The box also contains a chubby lipstick. It has a sort of glossy finish and the colour is very similar to the blush. So they go perfectly together. On another note the lipstick tastes amazing like tiny vanilla cupcakes. I always find chubby sticks hard to control but as this one is a little more glossy and translucent is works. My only complaint is that the lipstick is a little hard and you have to press on to get some sort of colour pay off. Other than that it is a nice balmy lipstick.
Finally we have the brush. A travel sized kabuki brush is also included in the set. This makes these products all the better for travelling with. They are already compact but I love how you get a brush too. The brush is so soft and feels like a dream to use on the skin. To put the brush away there is an innovative twist. This ensures that none of the bristles are ruined. This works really well as we all know the pain of accidentally ripping hairs out of our brushes whilst on the go!
