Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator – Gilded Honey & Ballerina

Hello my loves!!! Sorry for the delay on this post, I know I mentioned on Instagram over the weekend that it would be going up that day. We hosted Friendsgiving on Sunday so that ended up occupying a lot more time than I thought – I actually still have to hand-wash all of my china as soon as I finish this post. *cries*

I’ve been wanting to try out Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey for the longest time but it’s always sold out when I actively look or I forget to check when I’m at the store. I finally scooped it up as well as the other illuminator shade, Ballerina. While I absolutely love both, I have to say that Gilded Honey is the bees knees – no pun intended! I don’t own it so I can’t give a definite comparison but it reminds me so much of MAC Whisper of Gilt with it’s super smooth & metallic finish. I’m obsessed! Finger swatches definitely appear more metallic than with a brush but it is so buildable! It really wears like MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finish (again, like Whisper of Gilt!). I love to mix golden and pink highlights so I picked up Ballerina as well, still a near opaque metallic swatch like Gilded Honey but not as bold! I like to wear Gilded Honey along my cheekbones with Ballerina on top just at the very peaks and then also my cupids bow & down the bridge of my nose.

I would jump on them online while they’re still in stock as it wasn’t the easiest to get my hands on Gilded Honey! I had to buy one online and one in store. As of the time I’m posing this.. they are both at!
