Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25
I was surprised that this product did nothing as far as color correction for me. It was as if I was putting on something shear. Also, the sponge would leave residue on my skin.
Like Product..Dislike the Smell!
This is my first foundational purchase from Laura Gellar (I love her Spackle and mascara). I really didn't buy this for my main foundation use; I wanted to use this as a color corrector under my makeup. For that purpose this works great! In my opinion it is too light of coverage to use as normal foundation for me but it works well enough to balance out skin tone. The unappealing aspect of this product is the horrible fragrence/smell that it has. I'm not sure if it's the sponge or the product. Seems to be both. Has a plastic rubbery smell like a new swim raft. Hope that can be worked out because that alone would be enough to turn away prospective buyers. Thanks for letting me share my input.
Love love love it. It is great for mature skin, easy to apply and looks so natural.
"Light" too Light
Overall, I think this is a great product: buildable coverage that goes on smoothly, lasts all day and doesn't clog pores; however, the "light" shade looks almost white on my relatively fair skin. Too bad there are only three shades available.
I love everything about this compact and how it makes my foundation even. However I too agree with the other comments; more product please. The sponges are easily found ( or have on hand anyway) and there is so much wasted space to 'conceal' it in the compact.
I love it!
I've been trying different foundations from different brands and found the powders were too drying and really showed wrinkles, the colors were too yellow or peachy. This just glides on and doesn't show texture problems (like acne scars) and the color is perfect. I got the light. You can go light or build and I am so happy with this! Thank you Laura Gellar for giving me something that works for me.
Works for me
I'm surprised to see this isn't rated higher. I think it is a great product; full of hydration but leaves a clean, matte finish.
Do not recommend
at first loved the product, but I stopped using it for a month and it turned hard and had discoloration.
I have used other Laura Geller products and have felt very satisfied but not with this one.
Preview Your Review
I bought the light color, and love how it applies and looks. I thought I would need another foundation on top of this product, but it turned out that I don't need anything else. My only disappointment is that it didn't take long for the bottom of the case to begin showing under the makeup, and I don't use very much each day. I love the sponge that comes with the compact, but I would like for the part holding the makeup to be deeper. Please, Laura Geller, give us more foundation in the case. I feel like I shouldn't have to be thinking about re-ordering so quickly. Still, I really love the product and would have rated it as 5 stars, but for the one glitch.
Heavy matt finish
This purchase was made for a good all over coverage to even out skin tone. Unfortunately, color did not look good. With moisturizer or without, and I recommend with, but either way, this produced a very heavy caked on appearance. With that being said, uneven skin tone was still not completely covered. Not an everyday makeup. It looks pasty when applied. I've purchased drug store base that looks much better than this product. I threw the full compact away after the fourth time of having to wash my face and going back to other brand i've been using.
I like the product, but, like the other comment, give us more product and don't need the sponge applicator. I am ordering one more time, but hope you take the suggestion to give us, your loyal customer's, MORE PRODUCT PLEASE!. Thanks Laura, love all your cosmetics.
Missed The Mark
I am usually a Laura gellar fan. Love everything in this brand however this cc cream missed the mark. I am medium shade in balance and brighten but the medium in this product left me looking ghostly. I had to apply bronze and brighten over it. Also could see the bottom of the compact after only 3 weeks. Sorry but won't be reordering this one.
