Laura Geller Balance N Brighten Baked Foundation .32oz & Brush
The brush that came with foundation, broke after two days
On day 2 my retractable brush broke. Plus, each time I use it so much powder flies up, just like the worst of mineral makeup, that it lands on everything. When I opened the compact at work it fell out all over my clothes. I really did expect more for this price. On the plus side, it feels very nice on the skin, but it's hard to get the amount of coverage such as shown on tv unless you really pull up a lot of product and each time I do that the powder flies up. I won't be purchasing again.
Balance N Brighten
It doesn't cover as well as I had hoped, but this this is a keeper. This foundation feels like you don't have anything on it is so smooth and light. And it really does balance out my skin tone and give it a brighter finish. So my age spotted 56 year old skin only better and healthier looking. It really did a great job of matching my skin tone which I have had trouble with before, using other products. One thing I didn't expect was the smell, it is delicious! Not sure what makes it so fine, but it is clean, fresh and natural. I'm sold, only wish that I had waited because the next week the bonus set came out, but hey, I'll buy that and put the foundation aside for future use.

Not bad but didn't last
I am almost 51 years old and looking for a new foundation that provides full coverage but doesn't feel heavy on my skin. I thought the "balance and brighten" was a great idea so I tried it. It's not terrible, but didn't work for me... I hesitated between the fair and medium shade but ended up ordering the fair. I liked it when I first applied it, but after a few hours I felt "orangey" and the only way I can describe it is that my face felt dirty, like I needed to wash off the day's makeup. Yet, oddly enough, I needed to reapply. The brush itself was way too light & airy for the makeup to really be applied on a level other than very faint. I love Laura Geller's products, but this one wasn't for me. It went back. Even though returned, I gave it 3 stars because perhaps it just wasn't a good fit for my own skin care needs, and also because the brush was a bit cheap. If you are deciding between shades, I'd go with the lighter one because it's darker than it looks online.
Not So Great Coverage
I bought this product because I thought it was interesting. I have very fair skin that burns easily, so naturally, I purchased the porcelain color. I am the fairest of fair, so I thought that this would be a great match.
That said, I couldn't have been more wrong. The product did not cover well, if at all. And the brush that comes with this set it worthless, even if you make the bristles stiffer by extending the tube. I ended up using the Bare Minerals precision brush, which worked better, but I had to pack the makeup on for it to even barely cover the redness in my skin. I am disappointed this didn't work, but I will stick with my IT Cosmetics, since I know it works.
Not for oily skin
This product although very well made and I loved the brush did not help my oily skin. Laura please make one for people with oily skin. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with non-oily skin.
I love this. It's easy, soft, provides coverage, and wears well. I have used it alone or on top of a liquid foundation. This is a product that delivers what it says!!
I typically do not wear foundation, but this is pretty good . I am 42 with some sun spots, nothing dramatic though. It appears to balance and brighten. No shimmer, just soft and natural diffusing. I can't see the powder on my face or feel it. Very natural and polished look. I say if you are on the fence with this one, consider it!
Best Purchase Ever
I am almost 60,and have never found a foundation I even wanted to use after purchase.This is the first time I've had one that really blends in with my face color,and feels smooth and silky.perfect!!! I'll never buy anything else.Thank you Laura Geller.
I appreciated getting the brush included in the purchase - also like the fact that the brush retracts into itself so that if it's put in your cosmetic case or purse it doesn't leave a mess - I like this foundation because it's light weight and goes on smoothly with the nice brush.
