    I love this product, but wish it had a little more coverage ability. I spend a lot of time with cover-ups then cover it all with Laura Gellar and it's a great finished look.

      I have wanted to try this powder foundation for a while. And since it was on sale, I decided to finally give it a shot. Looks beautiful by itself, but mostly use it as a finishing powder. Gives a nice flawless look. I wanted to get the tan but the undertone was too olive and light. I got the color sand and it's the perfect shade for my tanned skin. I love it and can't wait to try other products from Laura Gellar!

              I tried this foundation at a sales price and really like it. I am a very fair-skinned person and most foundations are too dark for me. This matches me perfectly, though, and lasts through the day. It feels lightweight and doesn't crease or crack around my eyes. It is a bit pricey for my budget.

                      A:

                      This definitely will help cover! It will not eliminate the darkness completely, but it will certainly start to color correct and will even out the entire complexion. To cover dark circles completely, I would recommend trying our Real Deal Concealer. This will eliminate all of the darkness and will add so much light and brightness to the entire complexion. It contains skin-loving ingredients and glides on smooth and creamy. Check out the link! http://www.ulta.com/real-deal-concealer?productId=xlsImpprod2240061

                      A:

                      I recommend using a larger, fluffy brush. The more dense the bristles, the more coverage you will get from this foundation. When the brush is not dense enough, it will not grab as much pigment, which means less coverage. Decide what type of coverage you would like from this foundation, and then choose a brush to your liking! A sponge is fine too, however that is a little harder to apply and blend. A brush is definitely recommended!

                      We now offer 9 shades of the Balance-n-Brighten on ulta.com! Based on the Mac nc 20, because it is on the lighter end of the spectrum and contains a lot of warmth, the Balance-n-Brighten in the shade Light would probably work best for you. That should not go on pink at all. Enjoy!

                      A:

                      Yes! Because this product starts its life as a cream and is baked into a powder, it is not drying at all like some conventional powders can be. It is also baked on a terra-cotta tile which helps the product retain moisture... so you may find that this will actually keep the skin nice and hydrated! I would recommend pairing it with our famous Spackle Under Makeup Primer. This will hold the makeup on and it will keep it looking fresh all day long. We now make a hydrating primer which will add extra hydration to the skin as well as prime. Check it out! http://www.ulta.com/spackle-hydrating-under-make-up-primer?productId=xlsImpprod11911115

                  • Q:

                    Hello. I have fair to light skin, and while my face has a lot of pink in it, I use products aimed at neutral undertones to combat the pinkness and match my neck area. I used to have to buy MAC foundations in both NW15 and NC15 and mix them. I also tend to have to mix 2 different shades regardless of the brand I use because I fall mid-spectrum (when using liquid...powder foundations are a little more forgiving but sometimes I do still have to combine powder shades to get the right undertone). So my question is - what shade might work best for me, either fair or light? I would go to a store but I live far away from an Ulta!

                      A:

                      Based on the current foundations that you use, I think the Balance-n-Brighten in fair would be perfect for you. It actually contains multi-pigmented swirls of color, and the fair has a great amount of warm and neutral shades. This product is extremely forgiving and I do not think you will have to mix considering it has all of the different swirls. You can even start your makeup routine with our Spackle Under Makeup Primer in "Even Tone". This will neutralize the skin tone, so the foundation will stay true to it's color.

                      A:

                      Most of the time, these shades are so forgiving that you could wear up to three different shades and all of them will work. However if this truly isn't working, I would recommend either going up a shade (switching from fair to light). The light has a ton of warmth in it which is what I usually add to a color that looks muddy. Another option is keeping your fair, and adding a warm blush or bronzer to your cheeks, forehead, and jawline. This will also take away the muddiness.

                      I have seen this product look muddy if you wet it, so make sure that you are always using it dry! Enjoy!
