Basic Essentials – Laura Geller ‘Spackle Trio’

I absolutely LOVE Laura Geller’s Spackle Trio makeup, eye, and lip primer!!

It’s 3-in-1 set that is good for people who are on the go, it comes in a cute size perfect for your purse!. Some gals just put foundation directly on the face, but I suggest using a makeup primer for several reasons:

1. A makeup primer prepares your face for the foundation by giving it a smooth canvas to start with. It is usually applied right after your moisturizer, and I use a foundation brush to apply it to my face.

2. It PREVENTS zits because it SEALS your pores, not allowing any foundation to enter your pores and voila! A fresh face!

3. It also makes your foundation/powder to last longer because it’s a creamy base that “holds” your makeup in place, so you look freshly applied for the whole day!

The eye and lip primer combo is pure genius! The “eye primer” (the lighter shade), is designed to keep your eyeshadow to stay put and to keep it from creasing on your lids, and the “lip primer” (the darker shade) prevents feathering of your lipstick/lipgloss, and keeps lipliner and lipstick on your lips longer!

You can get it only at You CANNOT get it at all Sephora stores because some stores do not carry Laura Geller, so you must order it online. If you order anything from, you get 3 FREE SAMPLES of your choice of fragrances, other makeup primer brands, lipgloss, etc. The bottle itself is about $30, and they give you a good amount.

See me in the reflection? haha

Hence the name, “SPACKLE TRIO”, it comes with a little baby spackle spatula!

I also use Sephora brand makeup base before the spackle because I love the pink pearlescent cream! It brightens my face so I look more awake and enhances the natural skin tone.

Welcome to my MAKEUP BLOG!

My friend, who has a blog where he writes restaurant reviews recommended that I make a blog about makeup and write reviews, (as well as other things), and I thought it was a great idea! He said he gets restaurant owners to actually invite him to their restaurant so that he can review ’em, and who knows, maybe some makeup mogul will stumble upon this blog and will send me some products to test out!

So this blog is basically going to reflect makeup reviews on products I have already tried myself, DO’s and DONT’s, etc. I have always loved makeup (since my mom let me start wearing it haha), and I get a lot of people asking me what stuff I use, where did I get a certain color of eyeshadow, etc., and what better way to let people know!!!

First of all, any suggestions I make here are purely from my OWN experience and my own skin, so there might be stuff that may work for you, and not me, and vice versa. Also, I MIX and blend all my eyeshadows, basically that means if you happen to like the color of the eyeshadow, it mostly like has 2 or more colors blended together.

Lastly, if there are any products, brands, etc that you would like to know, please feel free to leave me a comment with your email and I will get back to you. :)

Remember, have fun with makeup, it’s all about being creative!
