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

      I bought this after the usual, seeing the good reviews, and after also seeing L.G on TV a few years. I had somewhat high hopes for the price and coverage. I have combo skin, with a reddish tint to my cheeks, and when I put this on I really have to work at it to make it not have the typical "powder look", also the fallout is horrible, and the coverage it sub-par for the price. I work a typical 8-5 job and by 9am I was already due for a touch up, that to me for this price point isn't okay. Ill stick with my NYX "Set it don't fret it" for a fraction of the price.

          not for neutral fair tone

                my skin tone is neutral and this makes me look too orangey. As much as I wanted this to be as fabulous as I've read about, it's just a no go for me. Given the cost, I'll use it.

                Oh, it crumbles (I've got another Laura Geller baked product that does the same), so not good for a make up bag that gets moved about or rattled.

                Pretty good foundation

                By Abigail

                from Virginia

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

                I tend to steer away from powder foundation mostly because I find them to be lighter coverage than I want and too cakey and drying on my already dry skin. That being said, I was pretty impressed with this foundation as it does provide decent coverage and is definitely buildable without becoming cakey. I also think this foundation does brighten up my features as it claims. My biggest issue with it is the color options. I bought fair when the foundation was on sale and found it to be too dark on my skin (although after about a half hour it had adjusted a little and was not so obviously discolored). I just happened to order a Laura Geller set with this foundation in it in the color fair again and the two are completely different. Even looking at the pan the fair I received in the kit is so much lighter and actually matches my skin. Because of this I probably will not purchase this item again. This item will last a while but the price is not worth it in my opinion for such variability. Also, this is not a makeup to me that provides full coverage and I tend to use it over a cream foundation to set it rather than by itself.

                        I hate the spider veins in my face and this foundation covers them and looks natural. I have had issues in the past with liquid foundations making my face itch or break out. I was thrilled to find this foundation which does not feel like you have any on and it evens out skin tones beautifully.

                            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.

                            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.
