Adding Laura Geller into my routine

I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves the way Christmas gift sets allow you to try a whole host of different products and brands, and sometimes you might even be so lucky to find a new favourite product that becomes a very welcome addition to your everyday routine. That's how I feel about Laura Geller, after trying the Laura Geller So Scrumptious 6 Piece Full Size Colour Collection, which I featured in my Christmas with Laura Geller gift guide. There are a few products from the set - which is still available by the way -, that I have really enjoyed using and have become regulars in my routine.

The So Scrumptious 6 Piece Collection included everything you need for an everyday look in one convenient set; Spackle Treatment Even Tone Make-Up Primer, Balance 'n' Brighten Baked Foundation, Baked Blush 'n' Brighten Blusher, Colour Lustre Lip Gloss in Sugar Cane, Double-Ended Sculpting Blush Brush and a Baked Eye Shadow Sensation Trio in Tiramisu. It's the 3 compact products I've been enjoying the most; the foundation, the blush and the eyeshadow trio.

The Balance 'n' Brighten Baked Foundation is available in 3 shades; fair, porcelain and medium, with Fair being the shade featured in the So Scrumptious set. I have an olive Meditterrean complexion and Fair is a touch on the pale side for me, but I have found throughout winter, followed by the right contouring, bronzing and blush products, it actually works, surprisingly, and doesn't leave me looking ghostly pale. It certainly manages to give a healthy look to my skin, with a subtly marbled baked pressed powder that has a semi-matte finish and works to counteract imperfections.

It's more on the sheer side, but can be built up if you desire a more medium coverage. It has slightly more pink undertones, whilst my skin has naturally yellow undertones, but I find it so subtle, alongside the subtle sheer coverage, that it still looks OK. Another way to use the Balance 'n' Brighten Baked Foundation is as a finishing powder above your usual base, which is my favourite way to use this foundation, as it just helps to create the softest, healthy looking finish. Available at, RRP £26.

The Baked Blush 'n' Brighten Blusher has become a real popular choice for me when deciding which blusher to go for, and it's mostly because the shade included; Tropic Hues, is very, very similar to MAC Stereo Rose Skinfinish, but actually manages to look more beautiful and with a much nicer finish, than Stereo Rose. What started out as a cream formula was then baked on Terracotta tiles for 24 hours to create a beautiful marbled blush that feels completely weightless and leaves a natural looking flush of colour. It also features anti-oxidant protection from White Tea Extract and Centella Asiatica, which works to soothe skin. I have used this blush more than any other so far this year, really impressed. Available at in 5 shades, RRP £23.

The Baked Eye Shadow Sensensation Trio is the only product I can't seem to find outside of the So Scrumptious gift set; although there are eyeshadow palettes within the Laura Geller range which look equally as beautiful and sure to be as lovely to use as the Tiramisu trio. The trio features 3 shades; a lovely golden champagne, a delicate soft pink and a chocolate bronze. A gorgeous trio of shadows to use on sunny days when the warmer weather calls for more soft and subtle looks. The shades blend together really well and application is easy with the smooth baked formula. The chocolate bronze is a bit brighter than I'd usually go for with my crease shades, so I do like to add a touch of a darker, cool-toned matte shade to complete a look, but the trio is super compact and would be a great one for travelling with.
