      I normally have to be so careful with foundation. Most brands usually clog pores and irritate my skin. I also have redness on my cheeks that is usually hard to cover but this product takes care of everything! I love how you can build how much coverage you want!

          The shade range on this product isn't good. The lightest shade is really, really light-- it's basically a frosty highlighter. I got the next shade and it's really on the bronze/tan side. I didn't return it because I've decided I can probably use it in the summer time as a bronzer. It does have a dewy look to it.

            I've used so many different make ups over the year and nothing has EVER compared to this. I like enough coverage to look natural. This is perfect. My skin is also VERY VERY sensitive and I could even sleep in this make up (even though I don't recommend for obvious reasons) and my skin would be ok. Normally with other make up, by the end of the day my skin is greasy looking and my make up is worn. Laura Gellar has created a great product!

                I can't get enough of this powder!! I use it alone on "no makeup" makeup days, just to balance out my complexion. It is winter and my skin is really dry, this doesn't cling to my dry patches and is virtually untraceable. I also use it to set my foundation on full glam days and it never looks cakey or flat. The shade I needed was a bit surprising, I'm usually a medium skin tone (sandstone in barepro and 240 in fenty), and I needed this in Fair. Light was too pink and medium was too orange. But once I found my color match, the formula of this powder is literal perfection. I don't see myself switching from this anytime soon.

                I wanted to love this but it just didn't provide much coverage for me. i used a brush to buff it on and even though i put on a good deal of product my spots and redness were still visible. It just did nothing for my face other than add a bit of a glow. I would use it more as a highlighter/ bronzer than a foundation.

                • 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.

                    A:

                    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. The link below is our shade finder which you would find very helpful. Enjoy!

                • 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!

                    A:

                    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!
