Laura Geller Delicious Shades of Cool Delectables Palette

Laura Geller Delicious Shades of Cool Delectables Palette Review and Swatches

When I was browsing Ulta the other day I saw the Laura Geller Delicious Shades of Cool Delectables Palette and decided I had to have it because it’s a cool toned eyeshadow palette. I keep saying I want to see more of these so I feel compelled to buy them every time I see them. The last eyeshadows I tried from Laura Geller were the Creme Glazed eyeshadow trios, which were insanely pigmented, so I was hopeful this palette would be too.

First let me say it would be nice if every color in a cool palette was actually cool. I don’t understand why companies are afraid to actually commit to making all the shades cool toned. I will never use Bronze or Frosting. It just won’t happen.

I do like the packaging. The names are written underneath each color, which I really find useful. It’s pretty lightweight despite the mirror, because it’s made of cardboard. The brush is meh, and I would never use it.

Carbon, Slate, Plum, and Marble are mattes. Graphite is a metallic. Smoke, Midnight, Bluebery, and Amethyst are satiny. Espresso and Lilac both have micro-glitter and a soft sheen. Candy, Macaron and Frosting all have this gleam that make them nice eye brighteners.

I do feel that these are high quality shadows, but you get a very small amount of product for the price, making this an expensive palette. Laura Geller emphasizes that you can use these dry or wet, and when you use them wet you get better color payoff. I feel like my swatches – with and without primer – show you the type of color payoff you’ll get. The eyeshadows apply smoothly on bare skin, but really come to life on primer.

I’d say overall this is a nice but expensive cool-toned palette because of the small amount of product you get in it. While I do wish that they hadn’t included the browns, I’m sure it would be a deal breaker for some people if they weren’t in there.

  • It’s such a bummer that these are small in size because I love how it looks. I’m a huge Laura Geller fan and I’m always impressed with the quality – these shades are gorgeous.

  • Such a bummer about the warm shades. These blues are gorgeous though. Thanks for the swatches too. 🙂

  • Like you, I love cool toned palettes. Even though I have red hair and fair skin, my grey/blue eyes just react better to those sorts of colours.
    This is a great palette and I love all those cool colours. Yes, they could do without the browns and the two blacks. Sad to see that there are no teals in here…. However it is lovely.

  • I stopped loving baked shadows because I didn’t feel like they were easy to blend but most of these look very nice. The purple one is especially beautiful and very Phyrra like.

  • I definitely like the look of these shades and I can wear all of them, whether they are actually cool-toned or not, because of my red hair hair. I don’t mind that the size of the pans is small coz I almost never use up eye shadows anyway, I prefer the fact that there are 14 shades to choose from. I will look at this at Ulta

  • I love all the colors in this. I like to wear both warm and cool, so the warm shades don’t bother me. However, I do agree if it says it’s a cool palette, it should be a cool palette. All the “cool” palettes do seem to have at least 1 or 2 warm shades. The only Laura Geller I have is Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla. I’d love to try more.

  • Pretty colours. There are a few Laura Gellar items I would like to try… A blush or two and a highlighter that has grabbed my attention.

  • Oh my – I really do enjoy the shades in this palette… though I’m always swooning over laura geller. I do agree, they should be true cool tones, but since I gravitate to warm tones, I think I would really love this palette.
