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

    I have been a loyal user of a different mineral makeup since it came out. I was given a sample of Laura Geller to try. I like that it is baked, & it has the different colors baked into the foundation. So far so good, just hope it stands up to my very oily skin

      Not for those of us who want to put on make up once in the morning and be good for the day. I'll redo my makeup if I'm going out for the evening but I don't want shine within an hour of putting it on. Color and quality seem ok but not my thing - returning it.

            I love the versatility of this product. When I want light coverage I use a powder brush and I get a nice matte look that makes my skin look more even. When I want more coverage I use a foundation brush and my skin looks flawless and matte. It doesn't feel heavy and I don't feel like I'm wearing foundation.

                  I purchased this in light as I tend to be in the winter months and figured if I liked it I get the medium for summer here soon. I do have some discoloring which this didn't cover at all. I would say it's very light coverage at best. It's also very dark on the skin. No way I would consider this light. I probably should have went with fair. Might work well with a liquid foundation under. I would say if you have any flaws I'd go with something else.

                      A:

                      There is no SPF in the balance-n-brighten. If you're looking for some SPF protection, I would recommend starting with our Spackle Under Makeup Primer that has SPF 30. Use this first, and then the foundation. Not only will your skin be prepped and primed for the foundation, you'll receive the protection you're looking for! Please see the link below to the Spackle.

                  • Q:

                    I am fair to light with yellow undertones but some redness on my cheeks so I tend to buy foundations with warm or neutral to cover the minor redness, for example I wear MUFE in Y215 and it matches pretty well... I was just curious as so what shade I should try! I had thought Light, but the set I want to purchase only has the option Medium and I am worried that will be dark.. suggestions?

                      Light sounds like it will be perfect for you! It has much warmer undertones and medium has cooler undertones. Based on the info you gave me, definitely go with light. Enjoy!

                    Hi! I have mild rosacea and am looking for a good foundation. I am reading the reviews and this looks like a good one. How is the coverage? Does this work as just a foundation or will I need to buy a foundation as well?

                      A:

                      This is a foundation that delivers medium-buildable coverage. It usually does a great job at cutting away redness and covering mild rosacea. I would recommend using an under makeup primer (try our Spackle Primer in Spackle Soothing- see link below!) first. This will start to tone down any redness and will hold the foundation on, keeping it looking fresh all day long. Enjoy!

                      Because this product is made up of multi-pigmented swirls of color, it is an extremely forgiving product. Based on the information given to me, it seems like Golden Medium should be perfect for you. Please see the link below to our foundation shade finder... this should help you greatly!

                      I am sorry, this does not come with a brush. I recommend using a larger, fluffy brush... something like a Kabuki brush. Keep in mind- the more dense the brush, the more pigments it will grab, and the more coverage it will deliver. Enjoy!

                      If you would like to use this wet, I recommend lightly spraying a large fluffy brush with some water. A light mist will do, it will not work the best if it is soaking wet. Spray your brush, dip into the compact, and buff onto the skin. Enjoy!
