Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25
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.
Love, love love this foundation!
I originally bought this for the color correcting to wear along with my regular foundation. I found it covered so well that I didn't need my regular foundation! It lightly corrects without the heavy "made-up" look or feeling. Going back for more!
I love this foundation but instead of sponge in compact I want more foundation for price value. I still gave it 5 stars because product is great. Price is just a little high for amount of product we get.
I guess this is a good product. I liked how I saw it presented on QVC and I'm hoping it looks as good on me. It feels good going on and it has a nice smell, like the breath of the sea. I still use a loose powder over it, just a little because I need a good cover. Seems to wash off nicely at the end of the day.
Like the way this product goes on so smooth and the color combo is a great match for my skin tone.
Excellent coverage and so easy to use. Looks very natural and beautiful.
Go Darker, or You'll Look Like a Zombie
I don't like the appearance of having a bunch of foundation on my face. I've tried numerous powder foundations, and found they look great until you get out into the sunlight. Then, you look like you're wearing a mask. They are obviously meant for those on TV, and not real life.
So . . . I thought this product would bridge the gap between 'no foundation' and 'the mask.' I didn't have a reason to use it until today, after purchasing it some time ago. That is unfortunate.
I'm not sure what the 'swoosh' is for. It's not light enough or large enough to use as a highligher, so why not just blend that color into the foundation? If we run the sponge across the compact, that is what it does anyway. Maybe it just makes it look pretty.
The 'medium' color is waaaaaaaaaaay too light. Did I mention it was TOO LIGHT?? I was shocked by how ghostly I looked after putting on the cream. I don't use self-tanner on my face, and I don't spend a lot of time in the sun. Truth be told my face is probably a little on the 'light-ish' side, and I use foundation to give it more color.
I like the consistency of the product. I like how it is applied, although I didn't see that it evened out my skin tone. But, maybe that's what the ghost-thing was all about.
I wish I would have used this sooner, so that I could have exchanged it for a darker shade. Maybe I would have liked it better, and had a bunch of good things to say.
Right now, my advice is to wait until Laura reads the reviews and improves the product before you buy..
