I was really looking forward to receiving this product. I had been testing it at one of the local beauty stores. The color I ordered (deep) is nothing like the color in the stores (neither does it look like what is offered). I have great skin, a little discoloration from too much sun; there was absolutely no coverage
Rated 4 out of 5 by SilverChic Sheer and glowing without the glitter
I am actually pink-ivory fair, and fall between the Porcelain and Fair shades. Since I was trying it for the first time, I ordered the Fair (I combine the Porcelain and Fair shades in the Balance & Brighten). While it is a bit darker than I would normally wear, this brushes on as a sheer glow on the skin. I wouldn't recommend this for someone with complexion problems as it does not offer any coverage and any concealer such as BE Bisque would be very noticeable. You could use cover-up on problem area BEFORE using this as a finishing powder. I gave it 4 stars because it is good but not perfect and the lightest shades are either too light or too dark for a true cool ivory.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ctinaw Not full coverage like the original
I am not totally thrilled with the balance and glow foundation. I love the original balance and brighten. It's so easy and provides excellent color correction and coverage so easily and quickly. The balance and glow did not have the same color correction or coverage effectiveness as the balance and brighten. I definitely had to add a concealer under my eyes with this one, which I don't have to do with the original. It also didn't do as great of a job as color correction on the red areas of my cheeks as the original. I had to go back in with B&B to give a bit more coverage in those areas. Also, this one seems just slightly lighter than the original. When I compare the two of my compacts side by side this one is definitely lighter and has much less "swirl" variation than the other as well. This is probably part of the problem. Maybe if I tried medium in this it would work better for me? I am on auto delivery where this was included in a TSV, so I think I will switch to medium for next time. On the plus side, I didn't find there to be much shimmer or glow at all - really I can't see much if any. So if that is a concern of yours, don't worry. I think I would recommend people to bump up in their color range for this product from the original B&B. I will keep trying, but I think this one needs to go back to the drawing board.

I am so in love with this product! I am fair and purchased the fair. This can be tricky because most powders and even foundations look like they are just sitting on my skin or appear pasty. Most of them leave your face looking a different color than your neck (NOT a good look). This foundation does exactly as it promises. It balances out skin tone and leaves it looking healthy, young, fresh, and smooth. It doesn't look like powder or liquid foundation. Seriously, this is the best foundation I've ever used. I've searched for years for this product! I don't think it looks glittery or sparkly at all. But if you like dry, flat, and pasty, this isn't for you. ;-)

I use balance and brighten and have for years. I love it so thought I'd try this. It looks awful on me. It leaves my face all shiny and sparkly. Add to that it makes my face break out. It's going back and I'm back to my balance and brighten.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hotcakes This Is good stuff!
Ok I must start by saying I ADORE Laura! She's a doll and I love many of her products. This foundation is great! I wear it over my Tarte Amazonian clay foundation when I want more coverage and alone for less. It gives the perfect subtle glow! So much better than the original balance and brighten in my opinion!
Shades are forgiving. I'm light but ordered medium bc I faux tan some!
Rated 5 out of 5 by sz0125 Really Great but...
I really love the way this looks on over my it foundation CC cream. It is beautiful finish much better than the balance and brighten but I wish it did not have Mica and Talc in it!! These are ingredients that really irritate my skin and also are not good overall if you google. Please keep this but change the ingredients!
