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.
Where to Buy

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.
