          I tried to enjoy this product but it just does not work for me. First, it works best with oily skin/normal skin. You'll get flakiness when apply on dry skin. It gives a light to medium coverage. But the biggest problem that I have was finding the right shade. A sale rep helped me to find my match but still it did not work out for me. I bought it in the shade of "Light." The sale rep told me that it has help a hint of yellow undertone which I am. But it will oxidize into an orange shade! My face turned orange. It looked like I just got a tan. So, I feel the named of "Light" does not mean it is a light shade...it is an orange/ medium tan shade.

              I like this as a mattifyer and to add a little extra coverage to my liquid foundation. That being said, I usually have to reapply midday, because I'm pretty oily by then. I like how easily it applies, and i haven't had problems with color consistency yet. This was my second time purchasing and I am going to try her matte maker powder, but i will likely repurchase this.

                  • Q:

                    I just bought this product and I am loving the coverage and color. It's light with still makes my skin look flawless. The only problem I have been experiencing is it doesn't stay on my nose. I've tried with with and without a primer underneath and I have tried it wet and dry. Half way through the way the foundation is completely off my nose and I can see a line were the oil has started. I have combination skin, but I wouldn't say my skin is any more oily than the average person. Do you have a recommendation on a product that would be better for this problem or any tips on how to prevent the problem? I really want to like this product, but I just need it to stay on my nose better.

                      You purchased the exact same shade? I have noticed that the fair is much more neutral, and the light makes the skin look a lot warmer, and in some cases, a bit orange. Since we offer 9 shades, I would recommend trying out a different shade with more of a neutral or cooler undertone. If you wear light, try the fair.

                  • Q:

                    I just bought Plexiderm for my under eye bags. You must use a foundation without liquid ( oil or water) to maintain the effectiveness of the plexiderm. Will this product work for me? I'm 60, have acne scars and still some breakouts. My skin is on the dry side and have some sun damage. I need all the help I can get!!! I have used LG products before and been very pleased.

                      This product actually does contain jojoba oil which is a skin conditioning oil. It is baked into the product and there is a very small amount, so it never looks or feels oily on the skin. I am not sure if this will be ok for you. All of our foundations to contain some sort of oil or water, I am so sorry! I would recommend giving this a try though, because it is a baked powder it could be ok!

                    I loved the Laura Geller BB Cream in medium which I'm finding out has been discontinued or just isn't available anymore. Would medium in this be too dark or similarity this? And I have extremely dry winter skin. Will this powder make the flakeyness worse?

                      If our BB Cream in Medium worked, then this product in Medium will work perfectly for you. Thank you for your love for LG products! Balance-n-Brighten is one of our best selling products, it orders medium-buildable coverage and looks incredibly natural on the skin. Since you have dry skin, I do recommend trying the Quench-n-Tint. This is our updated version of the BB cream. The shade medium should work perfectly. I use the Quench-n-Tint first and then Balance-n-Brighten over it. Please see the link below so you can read more about it. Enjoy!

                      A:

                      This product delivers medium coverage, however it is buildable. I like full coverage, so I use a cream foundation underneath and then this as a setting powder. If you later this on top of our Quench-n-Tint hydrating foundation (sheer coverage) or the Cover Lock Cream foundation (full coverage), you will have the most flawless, full coverage you can imagine! The denser the brush, the more coverage you will obtain. I like to use a big fluffy kabuki brush that is very dense, that way it'll grab a lot of pigment and give me the coverage I am looking for. Enjoy!

                      It absolutely will! Apply in the morning while you're doing your makeup and if you get oily throughout the day, you can apply a light dusting just over the oily spots and it will absorb oil without building. I also recommend trying our Spackle Primer that mattifys the skin and helps with oil control. Please see the link below!
