        I love this product so much! It flawlessly evens out my skin tone and makes me look great! After having my son I've had these ridiculously rosy cheeks that won't go away and this foundation covers the redness up and evens out my skin so nicely. Worth every penny :)

                  This foundation has completely ruined me on liquid foundation. I found it kind of by accident, while a friend bought their bronzer, I sampled this and was immediately impressed. I've been wearing it since about June, and finally just had to refill. The coverage is so smooth that a little goes a long way and the container is very generous! I also love how buildable the coverage is without looking at all cakey. I've also been searching for many years for a foundation that doesn't look orange on me, and this stuff really does adjust to my skin tone to make it look exactly the right color. I may skimp on any other product, but this is my must-have favorite makeup product of all time!

                    I wasn't too sure about this baked foundation at first. That was because the wrong color was recommended. I decided I would give it another try so this time I chose toffee. I love it. I even had one of my male friends tell me I had a healthy happy glow going on. Hey I take the compliments as I get em. Lol

                        • Q:

                          I am grey haired and previously used Bare Minerals powder foundation in Medium. Once my hair lightened to grey, my skin tone seemed lighter as well. Do you think fair or light would be best? I do have warm undertones in my 59 year old complexion....colors normally good for me are wines, burgundies, etc. Thanks!

                          Hi, I've never tried this brand before. I have oily to oily/combo skin, prone to acne, and disappearing acne scars with a good amount of redness on my cheeks. Can this product cover all that? Is this meant to be full coverage? Also, what type of brush works best with this?

                            This product delivers medium coverage, however it is buildable. I like full coverage, so I use a cream foundation underneath and then this as a setting powder. If you later this on top of our Quench-n-Tint hydrating foundation (sheer coverage) or the Cover Lock Cream foundation (full coverage), you will have the most flawless, full coverage you can imagine! The denser the brush, the more coverage you will obtain. I like to use a big fluffy kabuki brush that is very dense, that way it'll grab a lot of pigment and give me the coverage I am looking for. Enjoy!

                            It absolutely will! Apply in the morning while you're doing your makeup and if you get oily throughout the day, you can apply a light dusting just over the oily spots and it will absorb oil without building. I also recommend trying our Spackle Primer that mattifys the skin and helps with oil control. Please see the link below!

                            I have been with Laura Geller New York for 7 years and this has been and still is my favorite product ever! It is very long lasting, gives the perfect amount of coverage (not too much and not too little) and it's very versatile- meaning you can wear it alone, or on top of a liquid foundation for extra coverage. Because it is baked, you can apply it multiple times throughout the day and it never looks chalky or cakey or powdery. Another option, is try using our Matte Maker. This is an invisible oil absorbing powder that will eliminate shine and oil without adding more makeup. This might be a good idea if you were extremely oily and need to use several times throughout the day. Check out the link below!

                          My favorite powder foundation has been discontinued or no longer being carried at Ulta. Could you please recommend a shade comparable to Stila illuminating powder foundation in 30 Watts. I'm unable to make it into a store so could you please recommend a shade, Thanks kindly!!

                            Hello! Based on the information given to me, it seems like our baked powder in the shade of medium will be perfect for you. We have two different baked powders to choose from. The Balance-n-Brighten, which will offer medium coverage, or Double Take Foundation, which will offer full coverage. I invite you to check out the powders online and read about which one suits your needs best! I have also included a link to our foundation shade finder. Enjoy!

                          Will this product clog pores or cause an allergic reaction due to ingredients? I'm looking for something that is safe for sensitive acne prone skin.

                            All of our products are hypoallergenic and are very safe for sensitive skin. The Balance-n-Brighten contains skin loving ingredients like botanicals white tea extract and centella asiatica. These provide anti-aging benefits and help protect the skin from free radical damage, so you should actually start to see skin improvements when you use this product regularly. If you do somehow get a reaction, you can certainly return it back to ulta.com, however I think you're going to be very happy! It is worth a try because this product is so amazing. Enjoy!
