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

      I am a half Asian woman in her early 20's with yellow based skin. I have red spots and acne scars on my cheeks. The sales associate recommended this foundation in fair for me. It looked nice on me in the store, but when I went home and applied it myself with my powder brush it looked very blotchy and too Orange. I applied more of it on my cheeks and it didn't apply smoothly nor did the color match my skin. It seemed the more I applied and blended in, the more orange and blotchy it became. I do not recommend this product for women with red spots, scarring, or Asian skin like mine. Seriously disappointed and confused as to why this foundation looked so terrible on me. Spent my money from this return on cheaper foundation that has worked way better for me!

        I have used this product for years. A great foundation in the summer when you want light coverage on hot days. I also use this year round when I just want a light makeup look or I'm in a hurry. Has very nice light coverage and evens out my skin tone while not being heavy.

        I find that it does a good job covering my redness on my face. I apply it with a brush and use a bb cream under it. Pretty good at staying on all day.

                    I have used this product for awhile now and can say that I really love this product. I use it on its own and over liquid foundation I feel that this has medium coverage I can really build it up or use it on its own with a little bit of concealer. I think the price is a little high on it but the color matches me perfectly and blends well. This has also lasted me a long while and I am impressed I havent hit pan on it

                    Although I'm in my early 30's, I've developed sun spots. I hate them! This is the ONLY foundation that I have found that covers them and stays put. The price is high, but it is well worth it as it last a good amount of time.

                    I love this product. As a former bare minerals wearer, I was looking for a light weight foundation that would cover better. This fits the bill. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it doesn't last all day, and I have to reapply.

                        This product does not contain sparkles and is not shiny. Its finish is matte; however, because of its color-correcting swirls of pigment, it works wonderfully to brighten and even your complexion and add a youthful glow.

                      I have a medium skin tone but will be getting lighter with fall coming (I lose my tan quickly). So, I'm not sure if I should get fair or medium. I have green eyes, freckles, and yellow undertones.

                        Use all over face in place of foundation or with your favorite base for an even and healthy glow. Mix with Bronze-N-Brighten to achieve a flawlessly bronzed complexion.

                        We recommend applying using a large, dense brush like Laura Geller Beauty Retractable Kabuki Brush (Item #: 2218975):
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2240053

                        Swirl the brush onto the baked powder, tap off excess, and buff onto the face in circular motions until your desired coverage is achieved.
