There’s nothing more exciting than discovering a new beauty brand to fall in love with, the products, the finishes and of course the endless makeup look opportunities. So, as you can imagine our beauty-loving hearts were spilling with excitement when Laura Geller hit the Escentual beauty desk.
Laura Geller is the namesake makeup line of a New York City makeup artist, it’s the makeup industries best-kept secret and I’m here to let you in on it. Famous for her time saving, multi-use products, Laura Geller makeup is a girl-on-the go’s best friend. Also well-known for her collection of Baked cosmetics and beginnings on QVC, there’s a reason that Laura Geller products have been cult favourites of women for over a dozen years.
But when it all looks so good where do you start? Whether you’re beginning your Laura Geller love affair or returning for a second-look there are a handful of products that you need in your makeup bag, and we know exactly what they are…
#1 – Spackle Primers
An iconic collection, the Laura Geller Spackle Primers are mainly water and film forming agent based, which contrasts to many primers on the market which contain mostly silicones. Silcones will leave the skin feeling silky smooth because they temporarily fill fine lines and pores, but the downside is this filling action can often clog the pores and lead to breakouts. The Spackle Primer collection has something for everyone, a primer for every desired finish. The collection comprises of 8 primers, the Original, Mattifying, Hydrating, SPF 30, Champagne (a radiance enhancing primer), Supercharged (anti-ageing benefits), Neutralizer (colour-correcting) and the Bronze Tinted primer.
The Spackle Primers are the ideal undercoat to achieve perfect skin texture and they contain shiny pigments to a lend a subtle glow to the skin.
#2 – Balance-n-Brighten
The Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Brighten foundation is one of the brand’s most popular products. The oil-free powder foundation has a marbleized blend of soft tan and cream that work to offset redness and even out the complexion. Infused with age-fighting, antioxidant protection of Centella Asiatica and White Tea the foundation can be used alone or over the top of your regular foundation to achieve a flawless finish. The powder has a smooth texture that applies sheer and can be layered for additional coverage. The Balance-n-Brighten is the ideal on-the-go makeup product, allowing you to touch up and achieve a healthy, radiant glow wherever you are.
#3 – Love Me Dew Moisturising Lip Crayon

Infused with Vitamin E the chubby sticks will coat your lips in glossy, pigmented colour. But that’s not it, the Lip Crayons are also extremely nourishing with their balm-like texture. Available in seven shades, the Lip Crayons never need sharpening, making on-the-go touch-ups easy and convenient.
