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

      I honestly can't say enough good things about this foundation. I have struggled for years with finding a foundation that worked with my skin tone and oiliness and the gal at ulta recommend trying this one since this was one of the only ones I hadn't tried yet and I fell in love immediately. My skin has never looked better.

          Tan color is good for early tan, but covers up highlights (multicolor dimension) of natural tan. Gives a flat, one-dimensional color.

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

              I'm allergic to so many products these days, but Laura Geller has exceeded my hopes for a foundation. I'm mature, but I still have very oily skin and am prone to breakouts, so I use powdered products exclusively. I bought a combination pack as a starter and I couldn't be more pleased with the products. This powder feels sheer and light, but covers very well and can be layered on those special areas. I've recommended this to friends who have purchased it too and they're as pleased as I am!

                At first I tried the Bare Mineral's brand, but I wasn't too enthused. I kept up my search for a lighter foundation and found this little gem. I really like using this product on days I want to be a little more natural, but better. Also works great as part of my setting powder when I wear my liquid foundation.

                      A:

                      Yes! This is a color correcting foundation and also completely covers redness and any dark spots. It is buildable, so you may find that you need to apply multiple layers to reach the coverage you desire. I would also recommend using a brush that has sense brissels, this way it'll pick up more pigments and give more coverage. This is one of my favorite products, I know you're going to love it!

                      Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation is handmade in Italy and is created by baking liquid pigments for 24 hours; the effect is an almost creamy texture once applied to your skin. It is very blendable and buildable, and layering looks very natural. Unlike some powder foundations, it never looks chalky!

                      This foundation can be tested at your nearest ULTA store:

                    My skin has a yellow undertone, but it's extremely light. The lightest colors available here have pink or neutral undertones that look off. Are there other colors available or is it this limited?

                      A:

                      I would recommend trying the Balance and Brighten in Fair. This has yellow undertones and should compliment your undertones as well. It is pretty light and is forgiving because it's infused with up to 7 different shades in each compact. So even if he color isn't perfect, you won't have a line under your jaw and it'll blend perfectly in with the rest of your coloring. Enjoy!

                      A:

                      This foundation does a very good job at lasting. However, no matter what makeup you use, the natural oils in our skin want to suck everything through so you may find that you'll need to do a touch up half way through the day. I highly suggest trying our Spackle Under Makeup Primer! This creates a barrier between your skin and whatever makeup you use on top, so the makeup sits on the primer and does not sink into the skin. It will hold any makeup on and keep it looking fresh all day long! Try the Spackle Mattefying- our newest primer designed for oily skin :)

                      Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation 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 bought this product in Fair. It seems to make my skin red, I already have some red undertones. Do you think that I am using too much product or should go to the lightest shade in this product. I really want to love it. Help

                      A:

                      If you consider yourself a level one on the skin tone spectrum (porcelain, light, or fair) then I would definitely recommend trying the porcelain. If you're more of a level two (medium to tan), then try the medium. Because these products are so forgiving, if you're a true fair, you will be able to go a shade lighter or a shade darker without having that line of demarkation under the jaw. I do think that if the fair is making you too red, trying another shade will certainly help! You can also try our Spackle Neutralizer before you apply the Balance-n-Brighten. This will start to eliminate any redness that may already be in the skin, and it will hold your makeup on and keep it looking fresh all day long! Enjoy!

                      A:

                      Balance-n-Brighten is meant to color correct and provide all over coverage, and Bronze-n-Brighten is not. Use Balance-n-Brighten if you want an all over even skin tone, and to cut away any redness or skin discolorations. If this is your goal, use the color that is most like your natural skin tone. Use Bronze-n-Brighten if you want an all over warm, natural, bronze glow. This can be used all over the face, or we recommend using it on the high points of the face to contour, such as cheek bones, forehead, and chin.
