By amanda

I was excited to try this as part of a kit. I love the balance and brighten foundations but this was a total waste of money. looked like I had a very sheer highlighter all over my face. accentuated pores

Too much shimmer

By Melly

from Nyc

Comments about Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Glow Illuminating Foundation:

I really wanted to love this because of all the high reviews and I already use and love the original balance n brighten but this has way too much shimmer for me. The only good use for it was to set my under eye concealer but I couldn't use this as a foundation.

Comments about Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Glow Illuminating Foundation:

I've always loved Laura Gellar and also use the balance n brighten. The medium shade of this illuminating one is a little darker on me than the medium shade of the balance n brighten. It's a little on the orange side for me. I'm going to try the light shade. But the texture and coverage is beautiful.

    I had been wanting this product for a while now. My local store did. It have it out but a nice salesperson went in the back and got it for me. I use it daily and it is so easy because it blends and goes on smoothly and gives coverage.

      Comments about Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Glow Illuminating Foundation:

      My old holy grail powder foundation was discontinued way back in 2008, and I've been searching for a new one ever since. I've tried practically everything on the market to no avail. I was recently in an Ulta and I *accidentally* bought this instead of the Balance & Brighten. Wow, thank heavens for happy accidents! This is my new baby! Beautiful and silky on 35 yo skin, good buildable coverage, gorgeous in photos. I can't sing the praises loudly enough! I just wish it were cheaper.

      Other than the lack of coverage, it made my skin look Illuminating but very dry

          Comments about Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Glow Illuminating Foundation:

          I have LOVED Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten foundation for years. Then last year that shopping network started offering Balance-n-Glow. It is awesome. It's a powder that goes on creamy, does NOT settle into lines and wrinkles, and give the most beautiful, subtle glow to your skin. I've been waiting for it to come available at Ulta and I was thrilled to find it today! WOO HOO!

              I am sorry, it does not. You can get your SPF from a primer or from a moisturizer and use this as your foundation. Enjoy!

              A:

              The light shade has much more yellow. It will simply give you a natural looking radiance- a healthy looking glow. It will not look shimmery or glittery.

          • Q:

            Does this work good with dry skin?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              It certainly does! Because it is baked, it starts it's life as a cream, so it is actually a powder that adds some hydration into the skin. It will not dry the skin out, and it will never look cakey or powdery. Definitely give it a try!

            Will this foundation give flashback in pictures?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              It only has 5% glow (95% pigment), so it will not give flashback! Enjoy!

          • Q:

            How does this compare to the Baked Balance n Brighten powder?
            Asked on 1/7/2018 by kbug from US

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              This will deliver the same amount of coverage and pigmentation, however it is made up of 95% pigment and 5% glow- so it has a natural highlighter already built in. Regular balance-n-brighten will deliver a matte finish, and this product will deliver a slightly luminous finish. Nothing too shimmery- just a soft, subtle glow that adds luminosity to the complexion. I hope this helps! Enjoy!
