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

      I use this product especially in the summer for a lightweight, but medium coverage look. For fuller coverage, I would put liquid foundation on first, then lightly add this on top to keep it matte. Lasts forever and it's the perfect shade. It doesn't have a yellow-ish tone like some foundations.

      I love this product, I am a self tanner and use this to even my skin tone and add some luminosity. I do not find it drying or settling into my fine lines, she adds moisturizing ingredients and I also moisturize and use her spackle beforehand. It feels soft, silky and very lightweight, takes 30 seconds to apply.

            I have rosacea and extremely sensitive skin. Almost all products make my face break out, even Clinique brand products. This mineral make up doesn't give me any problems, blends really well (especially with the kabuki brush), and give surprisingly great coverage for a mineral poweder make-up.

            I bought this in the fair and really hoped it would match my skin due to the outstanding reviews, but sadly, it had too much yellow in it. If it was offered in a fair shade with pink undertones I would be an owner. As it is I had to return it.

              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.

                A:

                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.

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                We recommend using a big, fluffy brush like Laura Geller Beauty Retractable Baked Powder Brush (Item #: 2218974), which picks up and deposits just the right amount of product to prevent "cakey-ness". If Medium appears muddy, the shade may be too dark for your complexion. We'd recommend trying one shade lighter - Fair (Item #:2218587). These shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store to ensure you've found your best match:

                This product does not contain gold sparkles. 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.
