      This powder covers so well, my cheeks tend to get very rosie and this evens out my skin tone. It looks so natural and is super light. By far my favorite thing in my makeup bag because of how even it makes my skin look!

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

        I like the smoothness of the product and it does brighten your skin. It did break me out and it was not the coverage I needed. I have real sensitive and it is hard for me to find the perfect foundation. This product would be great for someone with normal skin and not a lot of blemishes. The product lasted about 7 hours.

                I have oily skin in the t zone and can't seem to find foundation that keeps me from having to apply powder several times a day. Do you recommend this product?

                  A:

                  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!

                  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!

                  A:

                  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!

                  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.

                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?

                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!
