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

I bought this product because of the reviews and I found it to be just okay. I'm not super impressed with it...but at the same time I am not totally disappointed by it either. I think it is average.I have found that I have to reapply the product several times during the day to keep it looking fresh.

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

    I love Laura Geller cosmetics, and this is the product that got me hooked! I use the light without a tan and the medium with a tan. Having naturally oily skin, I try to avoid liquid face makeup/oil-based products. This powder gives me perfect coverage, it's long-lasting, it gives me a soft matte look, and I remain oil-free all day!

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

        I bought this online when they had the 20% off and there was a nice free gift with purchase. I got the shade fair wich is too dark for me so I will be returning it. I would have considered purchasing porcelain (if it matched me well, I'm not sure if it does though because I haven't seen it in person) but when I tried using this I used a very soft brush and gently pressed it into the powder and there was a ton of kick back. I feel like it is such a waste of product. All of the powderiness also makes the container messy and that bothers me. I did like the finish on the skin but I think I am going to try some other powder foundation instead.

            I felt that this powder does balance out and creates a beautiful tone to my skin after foundation and concealer. I applied to half of my face to see if there was a noticeable difference worth the price and I think there is! I love it and will purchase again!

              It is easy to apply, goes on smoothly, and is easy to blend! I love Laura Geller products and recommend them to everyone!

                  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!

                    Hello! The foundation in this collection does contain Jojoba Seed Oil, however this type of oil is extremely lightweight and non-greasy. It is often used to treat acne and moisturize the skin. It soothes, conditions, moisturizes, softens, and does not clog pores. You will absolutely love this collection!

                    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.
