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

I purchased this to use as my wedding makeup. I'm thrilled by the results of this product because it gives pale, fair skinned sisters like myself a chance at having flawless coverage. The powder is lightweight and lasts all day. A little goes a long way, so you'll rarely need to purchase. I've had the same the compact since January. Definitely will be purchasing again!

    Nice to find a powder foundation that doesn't cling to dry patches. It is long lasting and easy to apply. Though I am light with neutral undertones, the medium worked perfectly. I have super sensitive skin with some rosacea. No irritation or break outs. The coverage can be built up without looking cakey. It didn't cover all my rosacea; but, I have been using the Lumene C overnight cream and noticed a huge difference in evening my skin tone.

          I am normally an It Cosmetics girl but the last Illumination Foundation I got is so powdery, I had it all over me when applying it. ??? So, I thought I'd give this Geller Foundation a try. I really like the ease in which it goes on and stays on too.

            Couldn't be any easier to apply & always gives me a perfect result. Touching up my oily T-zone takes only seconds a couple of times a day (such a huge bonus) & I'll admit to loving all of the compliments I get on my skin... not on my makeup, on my skin! Laura Geller makes remarkable & reliable products. Try them!

                  This looks amazing on the skin! I will only use it when I need a full coverage since I only use it overy my foundation. It's also pricey compared to some of the drugstore brands that I usually use, so I will try to make it last by using it sparingly. But I would repurchase again!

                  • Q:

                    I have extremely fair skin with no yellow undertones. Many foundations look too warm or yellowish on me. How might the porcelain work for me? Also, my age is 47 and my skin can look dry with powder foundation, so I am wondering if it will work for mature skin. Thanks.

                      A:

                      The porcelain has definitely more of a cooler undertone, with more pinks and beiges. It is perfect for skintones in the range of Nicole Kidman. Since you mentioned you're extremely fair, the porcelain sounds like it'll be great for you. Our balance-n-brighten has more yellow swirled around, so I am afraid it might be a bit too warm for you. Try the porcelain! And don't worry about your age or skin type... because this is a baked powder (it starts it's life as a cream), its a powder that looks extremely weightless and natural and it won't dry out the skin or settle into lines! You will love it. Enjoy!

                  • Q:

                    I'm using the medium shade but could also use the fair. I would prefer a brighter look for my under eye area. Could I use the porcelain shade for that or would that be to much of a contrast?

                      A:

                      I would recommend switching from the medium to the fair. Because this product has multi-pigmented swirls of color, it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your skin tone and you'll never have that line of demarkation under your jawline. I am afraid the porcelain will be much to light for you... the fair should be perfect. I am more of a medium and I wear the fair because I love the brightening effect it delivers. Enjoy!

                  • Q:

                    Because the product is a swirl of colors and not fully mixed, is there a concern that as I continue to use the product, it will reveal just just the white or a paler color?
                    Some have said the color changed as they got deeper into the product. Thank you in advance.

                      A:

                      This is a completely logical concern, however I can tell you from 5 years experience using this product, the color will stay the same overall shade until the very end. Make sure that you swirl your brush throughout the entire compact so that the brissles look like the are picking up each shade. It also helps to use a somewhat lager powder brush, like a kabuki brush. Enjoy!

                      A:

                      Anything that is large, dense, and fluffy will give you the most coverage and the most airbrushed look. The most important thing to look for is that the brissles should be sense enough to grab the pigmentation for optimal blurring and coverage. IT Cosmetics has some great options!

                      A:

                      This is a foundation that has medium-buildable coverage. It will not completely cover brown spots as well as concealer would, but it does a great job at color-correcting the skin tone and evening everything out! It will cover redness and simply make the complexion look bright, even, and pretty covered. I would definitely recommend this as your every day foundation, and if you need a little more coverage on certain areas, you can always pop a little concealer on. Enjoy!

                      A:

                      You should be able to use this product without any fear! We are a very skincare driven brand, so this product contains jojoba oil (hydrating and skin loving), and botanicals that have free radical and antioxidant protection. It's paraben free and mineral oil free, and extremely light weight so I definitely think this product will be perfect for you. I recommend using it with a Spackle Primer... A primer will also protect your skin and hold the makeup on longer. Spackle Soothjng is a great choice for sensitive skin.
