Review: Laura Geller Spackle

I feel like this product needs a drum roll.  This was, easily, the product that I was most excited about.  If you'll remember, Laura Geller is my current holy grail makeup brand.  I have been incredibly impressed with her blush-n-brighten and now her spackle.

The color might throw you off, though.  I received bronze in my box, and I was very afraid that it would look too dark.  I'm super pale -- I don't even have to look at the foundation shade that I purchase.  I just purhcase the lightest shade.  And sometimes it's too dark.

But enough woe-is-me, this is about Laura Geller.  This product gave my skin a bronze-y sheen without being shine.  Sheen without the shine!  Birchbox tells me that I can wear it alone, but I didn't really like it that way.  Under foundation, it makes my skin look clear and even.  And glowy.  I love glowy.  It's not just a color-enhancer, though, it's primary purpose is being a primer.  My makeup doesn't go anywhere when I'm wearing this.

This is, without a doubt, my favorite product out of my October box.  I'm using it very sparingly, but I expect it will take me a while to work through this sample size.  As far as the price, it's on the expensive side but not too expensive for me.  I don't use primer every day, so I feel like I can splurge a bit on it.

(For comparison's sake, my other favorite face primer is Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer.  It runs $36 for 1 ounce, where Laura Geller's is $25 for 2 ounces.  I think we know which one wins my vote!)

  1. I've never actually used a primer. Is it more of a "feel" different, or does it help alot with the way your make-up looks too?
