Laura Geller Color Optics CC Finishing Powder w/ Brush
Does not neutralize redness, as promised
Sometimes, I like to tone down the natural redness of my cheeks, and I thought I would give this product a try. The product has too much of the peach hue to work for me. My skin is almost alabaster in color and any amount of this powder leaves me looking like I made a terrible mistake in my application of make-up...like I goofed it up. Have sent it back.
This is a great finishing powder! It brightens and gives a more polished look to my make-up application. Very nice!
Love this Product
I love this finishing powder, the result from just a small amount is fantastic. Stays on for hours and needs very little touch ups. I would highly recommend this for all skin types. Sometimes finishing powder turns orangy on my skin, but this did not. I am well over 50 and it did not clog up in wrinkles and creases either, so on younger skin I would imagine the result would be just fantastic.
The perfect way to get through a day
I like most every other woman have tried several products to make myself beautiful. This product is the perfect freshener upper without breaking your wallet. I love the fact that I can apply my foundation in the morning and anytime of the day I feel oily, etc I can apply this product without adding more foundation or looking over done. Laura Geller products are outstanding whatever beauty need is needed. Natural is the best word I can think of in this finishing product.
I was a little sceptic about this product but to my surprise it does a great job and it definitely does exactly as described by Laura - I have slight dark circles under my eyes so I decided to add a little extra under the eye and it definitely helped with the appearance of dark circles - this doesn't replace my makeup for evening wear but it works for a quick get out of the house in the am.
Great Coverage for Imperfections/Discoloration
I love this powder; however, it arrived slightly broken apart. Not enough to return but I would expect for the price. The brush is not necessary. It's too "rough" and uses too much product. A smaller, softer brush works much better. Although I was disappointed in the formula, it really does work and I will buy again because I haven't found anything better. And it's great if you don't feel like applying foundation and want to just get out the door.
A Little Disappointing
I got on the auto delivery for this but I am a little disappointed with this. The brush is useless and I think it's overpriced. I will keep using it but may cancel the auto delivery if it doesn't apply better with another brush. I love Laura Geller and that's all I use. Barbie in Baltimore
This product is great to use all over your face to even out your skin tone. It seems to work well so far and I really like the brush which is included.
I was reading the other reviews and I have to disagree with them. I have used this for the last 5 months and absolutely love it and it covers the redness in my cheeks. I actually use it like a foundation and just add a little bit of blush. I do have to agree that the brush is not that great so I use a different brush. I LOVE it so much that I actually just ordered another one. I am totally hooked on Laura Geller products and absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her Glam Last Mascara and I hope and pray that she never stops making it. Thank you so much Laura.
Didn't work for me
I've tried applying this either with the brush or by finger - didn't do anything to color correct my flaws. Redness on my cheeks, dark under-eye circles, blemishes - still showed their natural color.
O.K., But ..
I ordered this because I had been using LG Shimmer Down Matifying Powder (A20185) and love it. So I thought this would be similar, but with the added correcting factor. It does that - sort of, but tends to look more cakey on me. I still use it occasionally, but don't notice that it corrects anything. I really love Shimmer Down though. It gives a nice natural glow without being shiny. It's really lovely so I'll stick with it.
Not really worth it...
It really doesn't make a difference unless you put a whole bunch on, and then it is cakey and drying.
I use it to absorb the little bit of oil I might have at times.
Not really worth it!
There are other brands out there I have had better results with in color correcting finishing powers.
