Normally, this should be filed under Beauty Promotions (Have you checked out the NEW Beauty Promotions section of the blog?), but as I am in love with Laura Geller's baked products, I figured I would highlight this QVC Today's Special Value right here. Hey, it also gives me an excuse to explain a bit more about the NEW Beauty Promotions section on the blog.
For today only, over on QVC and QVC.com, Laura Geller has a 5 piece Color Collection as the Today's Special Value. This is her Delectable Chocolate Baked Color Collection. The retail value of these beauties separately is $96.00, but the special today only price is just $39.98 - which is an incredible deal.
The 5 pieces are as follows:
- Balance N Brighten Baked Powder
- Blush N Brighten Baked Blush
- Baked Marble Eyeshadow
- I-Care Waterproof Eyeliner
- Shine and Shield SPF 15 Lip Gloss
"Laura's Baked Collection begins as a marbleized liquid and is baked in a terra-cotta pan for 24 hours, resulting in a silky, easy-to-apply texture. Balance-n-Brighten is infused with color-corrective pigments ranging from light tan to sheer beige. The dewy, shimmering Blush-n-Brighten drifts into place and looks natural. The Eye Shadow glides on, blends easily, and stays for hours.
The long-wearing I-Care Waterproof Eyeliner applies with ease. Laura's hydrating Shine and Shield SPF15 Lip Gloss is full of natural moisturizers like jojoba and safflower seed oil and cocoa seed butter."
I was browsing the QVC forums and saw that some people were worried that these shades are "too brown". First off, this collection comes in two shades. Regular, which is the universal flattering shades and Fair for very fair skin tones. These are not very dark colors, so there is no need to worry. They are meant to brighten the skin, as there are strands of gold and a soft almost nude shimmer into them. The result is subtle, and never too bronzy for this time of year.
Now, for a bit more about the NEW Beauty Promotions section that I mentioned earlier in the post. Click up in the navigation menu to check out all of the beauty promotions that pop up through-out the week. I'll be updating this as I learn about promotions, but you will have to remember to click there as these special offers, contests, sales and more will not be listed on the front page. It's sort of a blog within a blog. Feel free to send in any beauty promotions you see or hear about too.
