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

    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.

                        I overheard a sales girl talking about this product to another customer- so glad I did! I began using this more than a year ago and I've never gone back to my old liquid foundation & powder routine. It goes on easily, quickly and feels so wonderful & natural. Not like the heavy liquids I use to use. I always thought a powder would be dry but since it starts as a liquid and then baked it' s an ENTIRELY different product! I love it & will never stop using this or even try another product to replace it. A little pricey but since it replaces 2 products it becomes more cost effective. Also, Laura Geller has wonderful promotions offering kits or free product with purchase. BTW, my 24 y.o. daughter loves it too!

                                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?

                                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!

                                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.

                                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!

                                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.
