Laura Geller Balance N Brighten Baked Foundation .32oz & Brush
The best product ever!!!!!!!
I just received this baked foundation and OMG!!!!!!!!!! I am 53 years old and it just glides on without being cakey. Usually I use a cream foundation because everything else settled into fine lines. NOT this. I am throwing out every foundation that I have and using only this. It's feels light on your face like your not wearing any makeup. It will be great in the summer. I am hooked! I usually use Laura Geller Spackle moisturizing primer then I tap a little Laura Geller concealer under my eyes then I use a bigger kabuki brush and brush this over my face. If your using this just to brighten then the brush that comes with it is good. I use it as a foundation and I found a larger kabuki brush is better with blending. Wonderful product Laura!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't stop making it!
I am 40 and have very dry skin. I was considering purchasing this product several times but was unsure because since I have dry skin I wasn't sure if it would make my skin look dryer/worse. After reading the reviews and after seeing Laura use this on the show... I thought I'd try it out. I am sooooo glad I did. I needed something to make my face look pulled together ... like a final step. I don't use a lot of makeup and when I applied this to my skin it gave me just enough overall balance and it doesn't look cakey or dry at all. Then... after reading the instructions on application it also mentions that if you tighten the brush up by closing it slightly it can be used as a concealer too..So I tried it on the little veins on my nostril that to be honest NO concealer has ever covered correctly most concealers make it look caked or dry... but this product did the trick. It covered with one or two taps to the area. I love Laura's products and am very happy I took the chance on this one. 5 stars!
Fair is Yellowish
This is the first foundation I've purchased of Laura's.
About color choice: When I look at my veins on the underside of my wrists in indirect natural light, they are a bluish color, not greenish. If you've ever learned about skin colors, you know greenish veins indicate a yellow based skin tone. My skin has a bluish undertone, but I'm not what would be called porcelain. I have ash brown hair and green eyes. I don't burn easily in the sun, but can tan if I take it in short doses; unlike most women with porcelain skin.
I made the mistake of buying this in fair. It was too yellowish for me. Perhaps the porcelain WOULD be better, but I won't reorder because the foundation was also very dry feeling on my skin. When I applied it, I could feel my skin tightening under it. I have normal skin that tends to be dry in winter, so maybe that is why this was too drying for me. It was a light to medium coverage foundation along the lines of Bare Minerals and not one I would say covered entirely. You could still see some scaring I have from breaking out a bit after indulging in Valentine's day chocolates!
I think it would work best for women with oily skin that has a yellow undertone and not needing much coverage.
Over da topp!
I am a 58 y/o woman of color & I haven't wore makeup 35-40 years because of sensitive skin & I couldn't match my skin color. My complexion is very light; family & friends call me a "redbone". I bought this on a whim. OMG! It is perfect, it looks natural & it really evens out my skin tone. I will continue to order this unless Laura Geller perfects something better. Thank you Laura for the perfect makeup that is so "diversified."

I've been a longtime user of this baked foundation, on auto-delivery. I love the product, it provides great coverage, and makes my skin look porcelain.
Laura, my one complaint is that after quite a period of receiving the right tone, now each time I receive the foundation, the color is too dark for me to use. I order the fair, and they have gotten progressively darker, and with lots of yellow in the mix. I understand, just by the nature of the product, that there will be slight variations, but it has become a constant occurrence, and I had to stop using it on a regular basis. Although, I did save the darker versions for summer use.
I really love the foundation, and want to use it, but I never know what color I'm going to get.
Wow wow wow!
Ok BE ladies, get your head out of the sand! I performed a test this morning. One side BE and one side BnB. I have used BE for more years than I can remember....because nothing is better, right?? Wrong! I was Shocked that the BE side was chalky, settled into lines and didn't look nearly as natural as the BnB.
The crucial thing to note is that you must use the right tool for the job. If you intend to use this as foundation, you must use a high quality densely packed brush intended for foundation application (not the brush that comes with the kit). I use IT cosmetic brushes.
The big bonus here is also that this stuff is highly portable with no mess.
I have never had a foundation work like this, it is fantastic. It so light on my skin when I first tried it I thought maybe it wouldn't work well. I am so use cream foundation I guess I thought it should feel heavier. The true test is all the compliments I have been getting from people on how nice I look. I am so sold on Laura's products! I am a very happy customer.
Listen to Laura - she rocks!
I probably watched a presentation on this product for 2 yrs. before I gave in...such a hassle to be disappointed , return, etc. even though I have a few of her other products and love them. This is just ideal, won't repeat the pros, but it's all true. I am in my mid - 60's, use great skin care, no "outside" help. I wanted something I could really cut a few corners with in the make up area if I had to look presentable in a flash. And it's just ideal for that assuming a skin care prepped face. I never realized that the secret to great skin in later years is ALL THE ABOUT THE SKIN CARE., much less about make up. So if I spend a lot of time in prep, then a product like this allows me to accomplish a lovely polished look in a fraction of the time. Add her baked blush, as I am very very pale/fair, her fab brow brush, and some lip color and for a quick daytime look, I am set. I would say to use the fair color, like me, we are talking very pale, but works great on me and does not wash me out at all. So be brave, trust Laura! and go for it.
I love this product and have been using it for several years. Please please offer this without the brush too! Don't need a brush every time and it's expensive to have to pay for the brush every time. Love LG products and the baked blush too
Not bad but I THINK IT WAS A BIT PRICY. It did not stay on my face for long.
