Laura Geller Shimmer Down Mattifying Powder with Brush
Love Laura's products
I haven't gotten to use my new power enough to give a review. I ordered it because I was on my last compact of her oil blotting power she no longer carries. I'm sure I will love this one too.
I bought this powder to use for my daughter's graduation. I knew it would be hot and sweaty in the school gym. It was the first time I'd ever used any of my new Laura Geller makeup. Even with Rosacea and allergies I was able to wear all her makeup with no side effects! All of my family told me how great I looked, and my sister asked me what I used. This powder is so light you forget it's there! My makeup looked great that night when many other women's makeup was melting. Bless you Laura!
My first time using LG.
I love this powder, I'm a 54 yr old brown skin woman with a oily T-zone. I tried this a few days ago and I love it, not to mention I perspire a lot these days "sigh". One other thing, doesn't leave my face ashy plus I don't wear makeup ONLY lipstick.
Thank you Laura!!
I have oily skin and it is perfect for mid-day to cover the shine. Instead of the purse which I won't use, a retractable brush would have been perfect. It is too much to carry in my purse. Please reconsider the brush.
My favorite powder!
Love this powder. I actually use it after applying my foundation and again after applying my blush. I just wish it were available on auto-delivery to where you only got the brush and pouch the first time, and just the powder (for a slightly lower price) for all deliveries after that. I don't need a new brush and pouch each time. This is a five star product, but only gave it four stars because I cannot get just the powder without the brush.
Nice for not too oily skin
A great idea for reducing look of pores...also helpful instead of dry shampoo around hairline. Agree with previous reviewer...don't need more brushes, so wish this was stand-alone product.
Okay, the bag is a throw away, but the powder is great. The brush is very nice, but is too large to fit in my purse makeup bag. Instead I use a L Geller collapsable brush. This powder is great for toning down sparkly eye shadow and getting rid of general shine from humidity. I am never without it.
great powder, bag came apart
I have super oily skin and this powder works very well to cut down the shine. Really like it. However...I carried the bag once as an evening bag and it came apart at the top. Maybe the velcro is too strong for the lightweight lame. Guess I should get out the superglue to try to fix it. I love the bag, just fits so nicely in my hand. Want to be able to use it again since nice silver items are hard to find. This is the first time I have ever had a problem with a Geller item.
fine to nix the shine
I am 54, had oily skin when I was young, now I have dryish skin when I start the 'makeup' process but my pores release alot of oil throughout the day. I start with a moisturizer and then Laura's Balance N Brighten and my face looks soft and smooth. But within a few hours I'm shining like a piece of chrome! This product is fabulous for taking the shine away without having the tedious chore of removing and reapplying your makeup. The only down side is that I have to reapply several times throughout the day - but its a simple step compared to the alternative. The bag is worthless: if another item is to be added to the offer, make it eyeliner, not a bag. BTW: Laura's i-care eyeliner is pretty good at not leaving black smears under my oily eyes by the end of the day - you just have to let it dry a few seconds (no blinking) after applying.
I was very unsure when I purchased this product, skeptical about how it would actually work. Amazingly it works wonderfully, like magic. I don't need to use it all the time but keep it in my purse for those long, hot days when I start to feel a little oily or shiney. A few touch ups and I am back in business, make-up color and coverage stays the same.
I was very pleased with this product. Very soft glow and very light finish. Nice double-ended brush. Similar to the new LG baked loose powder, but this is SO much better!! Works well to even out makeup and keep the moisture at bay during these hot, humid days.
Not for dry skin
This made my dry skin even drier. Used it for a couple of weeks and it made the skin around my nose crack and peel. Very uncomfortable and disappointing.
