Laura Geller Balance N Brighten Baked Foundation .32oz & Brush
I came back to Laura- why did I leave
Other then thinking any foundation over $10 is pricey(hence the reason for the 4 stars vs 5) I love this product. I am fair and freckly and have been a Geller Girl for years, recently I thought I would try Tarte and Bare essentials...oh why- I came back to Laura I use the fair and the color blends so well. The brush that retracts is awesome. It stays clean and hidden in your bag. I also love the idea of loading the brush and taking just the brush when I switch to a smaller bag.
. I love this item.
Almost Disappointed, but
I almost returned product, but found that when I applied it over the primer, using the harder end of the retractable brush, IT WORKED. If you use the softer part of the brush by pulling it all the way out, you won't get the proper coverage. The 'fair' works for me...
I am between light and medium. The product also works on my hands, covering one or
two light brown spots.
Hope my review helps.
It's not spectacular, but it works pretty well. Wish the mirror was full instead of half shaped. Quite large for the purse, takes up more room than a typical size. I kept it but won't reorder.
Balance N Brighten
My first time using Laura Geller products. I like the Balance N Brighten, it is very light on my skin but also gives a full coverage look.
The on air presentation made this item look too good to be true. It was. The medium is for a light medium toned woman. If you have an ethnic background order the next darkest shade. I looked like a white ghost face. Too white for an Italian Syrian woman who normally buys medium foundation. It had to go back.
Was a BE girl now not so much
I tried this in a kit with QVC and absolutely love it!! I have used Bare Minerals for 8 years, but lately their foundation has not been the same. Every time I wear the Balance N Britghten Baked Foundation I get compliments from people I don't even know. I still love BE and have several foundations that came with kits, but it looks like I will use those when I am out of Balance N Brighten until I can get some more.
POWDER FOUNDATION, YES!!!
I wasn't quite sure I would like a powder foundation, Laura Geller talked me into it after seen her on QVC. It is so easy to apply, the coverage is great and to know that your doing something healthy to your skin is what I was looking for. I've found my new foundation.
Please make this in yellow tones
before this gave me a pink look that didn't
match the yellow tones of my neck.
Looked I was wearing a mask.
Please make this for the us that
have yellow tones. Thank you!
Best! Best! Best!
This is the best foundation EVER. I've tried so many and this is the one I always come back to ... no contest, this is my favorite and in my opinion the BEST. Nice light feel but covers beautifully without looking heavy on your skin. Long lasting compact and the retractable brush is a dream. Thanks Laura for such wonderful products!
Love Love Love
I first tried this product as it was part of a larger kit. It's such an amazing product! You can use it very lightly over a tinted moisturizer or foundation, or even slightly heavier if wearing it alone. It amazes me how it covers my skin!! It's heavenly :)
Makes life easier
I have many foundations but this one goes on so fast and easy, and covers all my redness without having to really use much concealer (only on a dark red spot), and it's not dry or dusty looking but rather it gives your skin a glow. I live for this stuff! I never bother much with my other foundations anymore, they take more time and effort and deliver a less desirable finish than this product. I just got the duo with kabuki brush so I'll never run out. I do find it runs a bit darker than other brands, I'm pretty fair and I use the fair when I'm tan, if I'm not tan I mix it with the porcelain.
Laura Geller balance n brighten
I have ordered this make up in the past and it is always my go to brand. Easy to apply and covers well. I have used it for many years and like it a lot. Powder foundation has always been my pick over liquid foundation and Laura's products do a good job. Thank you for this lovely foundation!
