Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl “Charming Pink” – Review, Swatches and Look

Today’s highlighter review comes courtesy of Marshalls, where I picked up a Laura Geller Gelato Swirl highlighter for …..wait for it……5 dollars!

Sephora products for drugstore prices? I live for days like this.

The Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Charming Pink comes in Laura Geller’s standard packaging – a clear domed compact with simple black text.

The product for Gelato Swirls is an embossed hypnotizing swirl. I’m a sucker for a good embossing because it adds just a little something extra to the experience.

The Gelato Swirl products are probably the best baked products I’ve used, simply because every other time I try a “baked” product, I can barely get any product on my brush. But with these highlighters, it’s pretty easy to get a nice amount. I applied it in the usual way – with a Morphe M501 on the high points of my cheeks.

Pretty nice, right?

The Wet n Wild highlighter in Blossom Glow still reigns supreme if you’re looking for a powerful icy pink glow, but Charming Pink performs substantially better than BECCA’s Rose Quartz. I’d say that Charming Pink is for you if you’re in the market for something a little more powerful than a natural-looking highlight, but not something that will make people whip out their sunglasses. And with a price tag of $5, why not give it a shot?
