Laura Geller Balance N Brighten Baked Foundation .32oz & Brush
Love this product!
This product has grown on me. I use Bare Minerals and love every one of their products, but I also have been using this foundation on some days and for some reason when I use this for my foundation, I get so many compliments when I go out! I don't know what it is! I think this gives about the same coverage and look of the Bare Minerals, but it must look different for some reason. Maybe the color looks better on my skin or something. Anyway, I have been reaching for this more and more lately and love the Kabuki retractable brush also.
Love how it feels on my skin long lasting would not call it full coverage can still see imperfections makes a good finishing powder over your foundation I think the spackle is the key for the application
Balance N Brighten Baked Foundation
I love this product because it feels very light on the skin and covers any red/brown marks without caking. My last purchase of this was just as good all the way down to the terra cotta tile. Thanks Laura.
I bought this for the warmer months since I tend to be deeper toned from the sun. I'm African American with a skin tone of Sanaa Lathan or Tracee Ellis Ross. I was disappointed, once applied, the tone was too orange and a bit darker than I wanted. You take a chance with the marbling effect. Didn't see a lot of orange in the foundation I received though. Sorry but it's going back.
I WAS A BIG FAN OF BALANCE N BRIGHTEN UNTIL I READ THE INGREDIENT OF TALC. I WAS COMPLETELY TURNED OFF BY SOMETHING I BELIEVED IN. SORRY TO SAY I WILL NOT USE THIS LINE OF COSMETICS AGAIN.
Love this make up. Better coverage then Bare Minerals but shades are light. If you are southern girl or have a tan do not get medium shade as it very light.
This is a great product and goes on so light and smooth. I love the brush too!
It's pretty nice.
In my opinion it works best as finishing powder over a small amount of foundation. It gives a nice "finished" look. But, unfortunately I have to touch up in the middle of the day to keep the shine away.
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.
