                      I've read so many good things about this product and was excited to try it. I used my moisturizer then the spackle, as suggested, then I applied the Balance n Brighten in Porcelain with the brush. It looked very cakey and dry. So disappointed :(

                            Im an ivory/fair skinned person. The fair they offer was too dark, so we went with porcelain. This turned my face pink. I used with the Laura Geller BB cream and it still did not match. I went back to Ulta and the sales girl who helped me even looked at me funny and said my makeup looked very pink. Luckily, the took back the product. Wished they would offer an ivory shade.

                                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.

                                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.
