Packaging: 9/10

Laura Geller’s baked shadows come in black, circular compacts with flip-up, snap-shut lids with a small, see-through window in the lid and a small, see-through mirror inside.

Quality: 8.5/10

Laura Geller’s baked shadows have a formula quite typical of a baked formula. The shadow has medium softness. Compared to MAC’s Mineralize shadows, Laura Geller’s are less crumbly.

The pigmentation on the 3 colors from this set is good, but not as intense as they seem in the pan and not opaque. Applying the color wet will deepen it a little, but you have to work the shadow into the skin more so that you get an even layer of color.

The shimmer in all 3 colors is prominent but refined. These work best over a base, whether it be a white base or a base that matches the color of the shadow.

Ease of Use: 8.5/10

The way to get the most color intensity out of these shadows is to apply a base and to pat the shadow onto the lid in small sections. With a normal shadow, you can sweep the powder over the skin. But this baked formula works better in smaller strokes.

Price: 9.5/10

For $39.00 you get 3 colors for a total of 0.24 ounces of product. Given that Laura Geller’s baked shadows usually cost $23.00 each, $39.00 for 3 shadows is a great deal.
