        Comments about Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation:

        Sooo glad I discovered this powder foundation. I mix porcelain and light for my perfect shade. I've used other powder foundations before and they've either looked ashy and heavy on my skin, or just didn't hold up well for me (I have combination skin). During the winter, I'm more dry and I find that this does not cling to dry patches or accentuate the dryness under my eyes. It holds up well in my shinier areas, as well. It's very quick and easy to apply. It has a bit of glow, but doesn't make me look like I'm oily. It just plain rocks, and I'll be sad if it's ever discontinued!

                  It gives medium coverage and this is the only foundation I will use.

                          A:

                          Yes! Because this product starts its life as a cream and is baked into a powder, it never dries out the skin. It's almost like getting the best of both worlds between a liquid and a powder. Also, it's baked on a terra-cotta tile which helps the product retain moisture, so its almost a bit hydrating too. You will love it!

                          Has this product been wet in any way? If so, it van harden or develop a film on top. I would try using a raiser and try lightly scraping off the top layer. This should solve the problem! But make sure to use a light hand so that you do not scrape away too much of the product. Enjoy!

I just used it for the first time and I'm not sure it's right for me. It looks pretty light. Just from the color I use in bare minerals could you recommend a comparable color please?

                          A:

                          Sounds like the Medium in our Balance-n-brighten would be perfect for you. Because this product is made up of multi-pigmented swirls of color, it is very forgiving. Most people can switch between shades and are able to wear both. If you want to stick with the fair, try adding some bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks, your forehead, and below your jawline to add the warmth back into the complexion. Either way, you can't go wrong! Enjoy!

                          A:

                          Yes it will! Because it has multi-pigmented swirls of color, they work together to color correct your skin tone. This means it will cover skin imperfections, cover redness, and brighten dullness. You will love it! Also, if you have extreme redness in your skin, I would recommend starting with our Spackle Under Makeup Primer with the "soothing" title. This is a green primer that will counteract redness immediately. Please see the link below:

                        I see that the color light is now available. I was using fair and medium. The fair I would warm up with bronzer. Sometimes the medium looked muddy on me depending on the compact I'd receive. I have neutral undertones would the light work with neutral undertones?

                          I would definitely recommend switching to Laura Geller! All of our products are very skincare driven and contain a ton of botanicals and antioxidants that do such amazing things for your skin. Start with our Spackle Under Makeup Primer, I suggest the mattifying primer. This will create a nice base and will instantly start to fill in pores. The Balance-n-Brighten is a baked foundation powder that gives the skin an incredibly airbrushed finish. The first time I used it, it completely filled in my pores- I was blown away! I think you're really going to love this brand. Check out what Laura Geller has to offer on Ulta.com and choose which products work for you :-)

                          Both of these shades have warmth and color, however the Fair has more swirls of white, and the Light is best if you're closer to the medium shade. If the Medium is way too dark, try the fair. However if the medium is just a tad too dark, go with the fair. Enjoy!

                        Hi, I have always used a medium foundation, but I get that orangy look. I have yellow undertones I'm thinking maybe I'm more between light and medium Color suggestions? I just hate that heavy powdered and orangy look. Also, does this foundation have a pearly, unnatural sheen? Looking for a foundation that compliments skin, and is not heavy or cakey BTW, I am 59, not many wrinkles, oily skin, yellow undertones, and some redness Very dark undereye circles with bags

                          A:

                          This foundation will be perfect for you! Because it is a baked cream, it will never look cakey or powdery. That is the beauty of baked! And because it contains several multi-pigmentedf swirls of color, this product is extremely forgiving. It will self-adjust to your skin tone, never leaving a line of demarkation under your jawline. Based on what you told me, it does sound like the Light would be perfect for you. Here are shade descriptions:
                          Fair- You are close to porcelain but have a bit more warmth to your skin
                          Light- You still have some warmth and are on the lighter end of the medium spectrum
                          Medium- A true medium, contains cooler to neutral undertones
                          Golden Medium- You have warmth and the regular medium is too light for you.
                          Hope this helps! Enjoy!
