    Mom’s favorite powder foundation

    Got for mom because light was a little too dark, so got fair. Not cakey, very easy to apply with dense brush, doesn’t set into wrinkles or fine lines. Doesn’t look dry,very hydrating. Quality is great, holy grail!

    The lightness and coverage this powder gives is like nothing I have used before. It goes on and blends so well to my skin, which I’m 50 and aging, doesn’t feel caked on or even that I am wearing foundation. It smooths out my dark spots and gives a soft feel on my skin. I am very surprised and excited to be using this and the price is affordable. 5+ STARS

    Works Great on Mature Skin

    I am 57 and have tried dozens of foundations over the years. I kept seeing ads for this but thought it was a bit too pricy at first. When I saw it recommended I decided to finally try it. It’s been a few weeks now and I can say I’m very satisfied! I see no clumping or caking. I have rosacea along with dark circles and this definitely provides enough coverage to tone down my problem areas. This product speeds up my morning process for sure. No issues with having to reapply unless I’ve been sweating.

    Compact Lid Broke, Foundation Crumbled

    I am very happy with this baked, natural looking foundation, but need a replacement as the compact lid broke off and while attempting to reattach it, the foundation cracked into pieces!

    This is sheer/light coverage

    I wish I had ordered a shade darker. It goes on smooth, but doesn’t build and is only sheer/light coverage at best. I could not get it to blend well all over so my face looked streaky. Disappointed for the money it cost and the lack of coverage.

    This does a good job of covering and goes on nicely. It even covers my rosacea. Price is less than Bare Minerals and just as good and seems like it will last longer too. Very pleased.

    Great product

    I really like this foundation and have had success with it. Just one caveat when purchasing on-line, be sure you know your shade first. The last one I purchased was not correct for me. But, once you know the proper one, go for it!

    Great coverage but a little too shiny

    Love the coverage. Wish it had less sheen as my skin can look greasy. I love the brand – good quality. Will buy more.

    I was very skeptical when this arrived, but this stuff is wodoo magic. I have older, oily skin, so the liquid concealer was not looking great on my skin anymore, so I thought to give this a try. It covers as well as my concealer but without the ‘evidence’ of having something on. I ordered the Fair but think I might try the darker shade. Will definitely recommend this for older ladies and am excited to try some of their other products.

    I seen this product on TikTok a I watch was using it as she did a grwm video. I will be 39 this year the older I get the less makeup I want to wear. I feel amazing wearing the bare minimum. Anyways, my daily makeup routine is a tinted spf, mineral based blush, concealer, mascara and tinted lip gloss just in the past two weeks I added this to my routine and omg I’ve been getting compliments left and right from my fiancé and strangers about my skin! I had a lady come up to me this past weekend & told me what foundation do I wear my skin is glowing and beautiful I told her I don’t wear foundation that I just added this in color tan and she wrote it down lol. Btw I do have acne prone skin also hormonal cystic acne I have made it a habit to take care of my skin for the past decade and have seemed to have it under control and clear acne for the most part but when my monthly cycle starts every month so don’t think I already have this clear flawless skin like some woman who don’t need to wear anything! I’m keeping is honest with you. This powder is light weight and like I said it’s been 2 weeks no new breakouts just new compliments. I’m happy! Thank you

    The best powder foundation I’ve used

    I still use a tiny bit of liquid foundation {Ofir) where my larger pores are, but then dust the Laura Geller powder foundation on all over. I find that if I use the powder alone, my nose pores are much more visible than with my liquid foundation. It’s amazing how if both used together takes both of them up a BIG notch. I do use a matte primer on my t-zone, and dewy primer over the rest of my face. I am 50+, large pores/oily on t-zone, and dry everywhere else. I will keep with this regimen until something better comes along. I’ve tried EVERY foundation out there, liquid and powder. I find this is the best combination for my skin. Note – Prior to buying this Laura Geller powder foundation, I was using a liquid foundation, along with setting powder. Using the Laura Geller foundation instead of setting powder is night and day. I will continue to buy.

    I have finally found my NEW powder!

    With having ‘mature’ skin (67 yrs young here) – I was getting frustrated with these high priced foundations that STILL settled in those little fine lines and creases. By the end of the day, you looked like something from a horror movie.Not with this! My makeup looks brand new, even after a long day of running errands, getting in and out of the car , etc. My face feels so soft and moisturized and the color just adapts to my skin tone. There is NO guessing what ‘shade’ to purchase.Love it!

    I want to love this

    When I’ve used foundation, I’ve always gone with the liquid, but always felt it was too heavy feeling. I wanted to love this and for the most part it’s great. It’s easy to apply. Gives a consistent light weight coverage. Feels nice and silky. Doesn’t have a weird smell. My only issue with it is that it makes me look orange. I’ve tried to use it daily, thinking maybe the top layer was too dark, but it’s consistently the same which is a good thing. I just think it’s not right for my skin tone. Probably wouldn’t purchase again for that alone.

    Nice finish, very powdery kickup

    LAURA GELLER NEW YORK Award-Winning Baked Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Powder Foundation – Sand – Buildable Light to Medium Coverage – Demi-Matte Natural Finish ($26.50)I like the finish and it does provide lighter coverage. It produces a lot of powder/fall out so be careful when applying that you do not get it on your clothing or other surfaces you are sitting or standing over. This has no scent that I could detect which is great. After reading reviews I ordered a shade lighter than I would expect. When applied it is still a little dark, (I’m a black woman with caramel skin). It is the winter so maybe this would be perfect during the summer months. I did end up applying my PÜR Beauty powder foundation in the shade ‘Light Tan’ at the center of my face to lighten things up. That seemed to work well. Overall this is a decent powder. Would be 5 stars for me if the color matched better and if it didn’t kick up so much powder when using a brush.

    Color not as it describes

    This product is ok, coverage is ok very light. I didn’t really like the color, because it’s darker than it described. I have light to medium and yellow under tone, so I choose the light color, but still to dark for my face. So Recommend to get lighter shade than your your skin tone.

    Great lightweight sheer coverage that evens skin tone!

    It’s a lightweight powder that gives sheer coverage while also blurring those pores, fine lines, and evens out redness and dark areas. It gives a youthful glow. I have combination skin and feel it works best with well hydrated skin or oily-prone skin. If my skin is dry this powder foundation makes it feel itchy. So moisturizing well and using a primer helps a lot.

    I like it…

    I bought the small travel size of the porcelain shade. It’s a nice match to my skin tone. Ii have hyper sensitive skin and it didn’t irritate my skin, which is always a bonus. Matched my skin very well. Didn’t settle in pores or fine lines. I have it 4 stars because the price is not worth the size.

    Be careful with the color

    The product is great for a minimal but polished makeup look which is what I want at 72. Great for travel. But…. I’m now awaiting my third try on the right color (the lightest). I’m brown haired and eyes, freckled, & can tan slowly, though I don’t do that anymore after 2 skin cancer surgeries. I saw an advertisement featuring Laura Geller and I’m definitely more light complected. Since I’m having to wait several weeks for the lightest color, I’m obviously not the only one experiencing this.

    Powder on mature skin

    **(Updated review at the end)** Have only used it once but as a 52 yr old with dry skin, I’m pleasantly surprised that this powder didn’t look dry on me, dry out my skin or settle into lines and creases. I’ve only worn it once though because I chose the wrong color for my skin tone. A couple reviewers wrote that you could get away with wearing a few of the shades, so I chose based on that but it doesn’t work for me. I chose “Fair“ because for some reason, it was significantly cheaper than the other tones. And at these price points, I didn’t want to try a new foundation and dislike it. So, I thought with “Fair”, “Porcelain” and “Light” all having a similar color value (lightness), I’d be good. You can see in the pix that “Fair” is warmer (more orange) than “porcelain” and “light” but commenters have said it doesn’t matter. It does. I have cool undertones and “fair” made me very orange. And I only used the lightest touch and one layer- I didn’t build it up. “Porcelain” looks to be the same value but cooler-toned . I wanted to order “light”, which is between “fair” and “porcelain” in terms of warmth and coolness – it’s the most neutral. But “light” costs $8 more and “porcelain” costs $4 more than “fair” and like said, I didn’t want to pay $30-$34 for a product I was worried would be dry plus commenters said you could wear other tones and it would work with your coloring, so I trusted that. So now I’m stuck with this $26 product I can’t use. But I’m giving it 4 stars based on the wearability from the one time I wore it. Lovely coverage and it didn’t sink into my fine lines. Just know that it DOES matter what color you choose. And why is there such a vast difference in price between shades??**Update: I have not changed the star rating. I purchased my correct shade, porcelain. I’ve never bought porcelain in other foundations. I am typically darker than that but I am definitely porcelain with this foundation. You need to apply this immediately after moisturizer if you want it to stick like a foundation. Or primer is also good underneath. This foundation is very smooth and illuminating. Not glittery, but all of your highlighted areas of your face are illuminated, which is nice. The first time I wore it in public, I got a compliment on my skin, which was definitely due to this foundation because my bare skin is very uneven, and I have rosacea. I barely touch around my eyes though with us. I feel like it highlights my crows feet and lines too much. But I love it everywhere else on my face. What I think I love most is the non-make up feel. It feels like you have nothing on your face.

    It works!

    I waited until I used it more than a few times as I don’t wear makeup every day. I originally thought it was a bit dry but I used a foundation brush and it went on well. It’s not heavy at all and you do regulate how and how much you need. The color works on me too. It’s a keeper for me.

    Best Foundation!

    This is the best foundation I have ever bought and worn! It is marketed for all ages (mainly older women), but I am 29 years old and am in love with it so far. It is the first foundation I have worn that matched my coloring perfectly and didn’t make me look all orange or washed out. I have never gotten in to all the face make up stuff with contouring and such so have always wanted an easy application make up that looked natural and didn’t break me out. I have gotten all of that with this foundation! I love the powder so much more than I thought I would. I have always used liquid foundation, but may never go back after this. I apply this with one of the Laura Geller retractable brushes, add some blush, and finish off with finishing powder. It lasts all day and still looks natural at the end of the day after work. Highly recommend this for the young women as well!

    Quick way to look beautiful without all the foundation fuss!!

    This foundation is a game changer for me. I live in Arizona and try to avoid liquid foundation if I can, especially in the HOT weather!! This powder foundation goes on smooth, no creasing, covers flaws beautifully, and looks AMAZING!! So glad Laura Geller brought this miracle powder to market. I also love thebrush…

    I think I like it!

    Initially I was disappointed in the coverage and I felt the color made me look dirty rather than natural. But I’ve decided to use it as a powder over a very light tinted moisturizer; use bare minerals complexion rescue, and that is just perfect! Exactly what I’ve been looking for. I think I’ll actually purchase another in the next lighter shade and will use that to lightly even things out when I want a super sheer look.

    Must use a lot for proper coverage

    I really like this product. It does exactly what the description says but it takes a lot of product to adequately cover my complexion. I will add that I do have a blotchy complexion but other products have successfully covered my skin with less product. Maybe that’s the price of using this product- take the time. I am worth it!

    Wow love it!

    After seeing this on TV ads, I decided to give it a try for my 54-year-old skin. It doesn’t matter what kind of liquid makeup I use it tends to look flaky and settle into the lines on my aging face. I ordered the light and the medium in this product. Mixing them both seems to be ideal for me. No matter how many layers I put on with the kabuki brush they don’t look cakey or settle into lines or cause flaky dryness looking skin areas. I’m really impressed by this and it’s just enough coverage. It is buildable but doesn’t look like you’re wearing a full face of make up. Perfect for me .

    First impressions- Love it!!

    I was worried about it coming in tact as I had seen several others receive with some damage to powder. It came beautifully in tact.I have rosacea and my skin is sensitive. It’s also aging so balancing a look with something that my skin likes was important. Matching my fair complexion and ease of application was also important. I was unsure how a powder would stay on all day. So far I LOVE it!! It feels like a dream on my face, easy to apply, stayed on all day and one day was rainy and windy and my hair was all over, but my makeup stayed! LOL There is some settling in my “fine lines” but no more than anything else I have used and I’ve used many. They are just a reality and I love the look of not having heavy make-up on. I waited to review after a few days of using and I really love it!

    Color match and coverage is excellent for me!

    At 66 years old, I’ve been trying to find something, anything to use as a light foundation, BB or CC cream, or powder of any kind that would be simple and quick that would provide the coverage I want, but without adding emphasis to the light wrinkles and just a few, small dark spots I have on my face. This product finally met my expectations! I’m a fan!

    Covers nicely and doesn’t sit in fine lines

    I purchased this powder foundation a little while ago, not ever using a powder but I’m older now and my liquid foundation just didn’t look very good on me anymore. This powder foundation had very good reviews, I always read reviews, so I decided to try it. The color the Laura Geller website recommended was percaline. I have to say it’s a perfect match. I was pleasantly surprised at how the foundation covered. It has a nice medium coverage and doesn’t look cakey or too heavy. It goes on your skin very nicely and it feels so silky smooth. I would recommend it.

    BBB for mature skin, is wonderfully sheer, long lasting on skin and in the compact. BBB is very light weight, and quite moisturizing! I would buy it again, but it will be awhile, because it seems to last forever. Get the BBB compact for mature skin, you wont regret it!

    Thank You!

    I’m glad Amazon carries Laura Geller. I have been using the baked balance & brighten for over a yr and it is great for me. I have fair skin and freckles. I could never find a liquid foundation that works well. With bronzer, highlighter, I can apply a natural, sun-kissed look that works well with my skin tone and freckles. This is a good product for mature skin. I also like their hydrating primer (white/teal bottle). None of the products have a odor or perfume. Wished I had this kind of makeup when I was younger. It is so blend-able to get the effect I want without spending a tremendous amount of time applying it. If you have never used any of her products, I would suggest starting with a baked brighten & balance & the hydration primer. I like to apply my foundation with a Real Techniques sponge as the product it buildable.

    Baked-N-Balanced Color Correcting Powder-Fair

    I used this product for the first time, not believing I would get good results. I had been using a good cream foundation for way too many years with average results . I was always trying to even out the makeup in creases. Applying the Laura Geller Baked-N-Balanced Color Correcting Powder was so easy & the coverage was fantastic with not having to smooth out the powder in my wrinkles. My face felt so much lighter & did not feel caked on. I am so thankful for seeing Laura Geller’’s ads on TV which encouraged me to check out her website & read reviews. Nothing I’ve used over the 30-45 years compares to this . PS: the powder did not leave an orange tint of color on my face.

    It’s cute and it works

    I ordered this size to try the powder without committing to a full sized version and I’m hooked! It gives a nice, natural looking coverage without settling into creases and lines. Liquid foundation has never worked for me and most true powder foundations end up being too orangey for my skin tone. This is exactly what I was looking for…a subtle blur to skin imperfections that come with age. Would definitely purchase again.

    Blends great & is lightweight!

    I use this both alone & over a liquid foundation or concealer. I love how nicely it blends I do not need blush; I love the light tint on my pale skin. It’s great on a hot day because it’s so lightweight & feels breathable on my skin. I highly recommend for any skin type

    Only powder foundation I’ve felt good about as a stand alone foundation

    Normally I’d use some type of liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer 1st then apply a powder over the top. This one gives me enough coverage that I don’t need to apply a liquid 1st. It also doesn’t wash me out or look like 1 soild color. It has just enough swirls of color that it matches my complexion perfectly. It’s also buildable. My nose is very red looking and sometimes I need a little extra to cover the redness, but again w the swirl of color and being able to build coverage this works great. I’ve now bought this 4 times and even tho I keep trying other brands I still keep coming back to this one. Great product

    Not the coverage I expected

    This product is light to medium coverage I expected a little more coverage but the trade off is that it doesn’t make your wrinkles appear worse by caking in them. Not a bad product

    Love this make-up. It’s the second time I reordered it. Goes on smooth and not real heavy. I have a lot of dark spots on my face from sun damage and if I use a blemish stick and top with this make up, t covers so well and blends in with m skin tone.

    Unfortunately this make up is not covering as I had hoped it would, but I’m using it as a powder over my foundation and that seems to give it a nice finish. So, all is not lost.

    At 65, less is more! This foundation is just a veil that evens out ur skin tone and is like wearing nothing. Concealer is a must and this Laura Geller powder gets u out the door with confidence. Finish with a setting mist and ur glowing for the day.

    Color not quite the same

    This product is quality, but the color is a not more yellow than it appears here. I counter that by issuing a light touch. It would be very helpful if they sell a bracketed sample pack to ensure you get your color the first time, as it seems this is returned a lot for that reason.

    Loved it once I made this adjustment

    At first try of this makeup, I was afraid the coverage was going to be too sheer for my ruddy cheeks and age spots. But then I read a trick to keep the brush bristles twisted down so only about 1/2″ were exposed. Using the brush like this enables more foundation to be picked up. Then I “pounce” this shortened brush over the areas that need more coverage. I twist open and “sweep” the foundation over the areas that need less coverage. Works great on my 71 year old skin.

    very nice foundation

    I decided to try this since it is advertised so much. I really like it. It goes on so nicely and covers just right. It never looks like I am wearing foundation but I look more even in my complexation, covering dark spots nicely. I like how it feels and it wears all day although I always use primer so that might help, also.The one thing to be careful, it does darken, at least mine does. So maybe order a shade lighter if that happens to you as it does to me. Overall, I really like this foundation for how it looks and wears.

    Great Stuff! Especially for more mature skin.

    In my mid 50’s now and this is the perfect makeup for me. Super light, extremely flattering. Just a few swipes with a big soft brush and it gives such a nice soft coverage of redness, spots, unevenness. Also gives me a slight glow, skin just looks healthier with it on. Zero negative reaction on my skin. It feels like I’m not wearing anything at all. Sometimes (quite often actually) , I’ll use a bit of moisturizer, a light dusting of this powder and a bit of mascara and I’m good to go. It’s won me over.

    Silky, lightweight and does not accentuate wrinkles, as liquid foundations do!

    Loved ease of coverage – glided on with a brush and it is so light, you don’t feel you are wearing anything. For me, the major selling point is that it works well on mature skin ( I am 58)! I was sceptical when reading other reviews before buying, but it really does skim over wrinkles, as opposed to accentuating them! I started using almost a month ago and have had comments that my skin is glowing!I would have given 5 stars, but the only dislike I have is that it does seem to wear off quicker than I would like so you do need to top up.Excellent product though and good value.

    Excellent Powder Makeup

    I have several shades of this makeup. This particular shade is “Porcelain” which is to light for my overall complexion…..but I like the consistency & longevity of the makeup powder and use it to lightly set my under eye dark circle cover. I use a warmer shade on the rest of my face. It covers flaws easily, lasts all day and is great for my skin that easily breaks out & is sensitive to many products. I sometimes use this makeup alone & at times use it over a liquid base. Either way it gives a beautiful polished finish.

    WOW. JUST WOW. 4.5 out of 5; minus a little for no color/shade samples

    I’m almost 60/F, some wrinkles and a fair amount of discoloration, red spots, and sun damage, esp. on cheeks.This foundation (baked balance and brighten, color FAIR) is really easy to use. Feels like nothing, even when building. I used only basic, soft, fluffy brushes I had on hand; they worked well for light coverage, but I do think a denser brush option – like a retracting kabuki, as recommended – might work better for building.Very good coverage on bare skin (moisturizar only), pracrically perfect over an inexpensive primer. Almost all my flaws disappeared, even without concealer.Did not settle in wrinkles, either. I FEEL PRET-TY, OH-SO PRET-TY!…or, at least, “not bad for an old broad, not at all!”.I do find that using primer is better over large pores and significant discoloration, such as have I. I used a budget brand with spf 30 and the foundation went on perfectly.It’s FAST, too. The longest part if the process is waiting for the primer to dry, maybe 1-3 minutes.Found it difficult to shade match – but to be fair: When is it *not* difficult?Would be a very nice thing if Laura Geller Beauty offered an inexpensive “sampler” (say, $5.00 for just enough product for 1/2 face in two adjacent shades) to help in this process.I tried “PORCELAIN” first, but it was just a tad too light. The model wearing “FAIR” looks like an olive tone to me, whereas (I think?) I’m more peachy, like the “LIGHT” model – but I’m super pale…but … but.. hem ..haw..Seems really wasteful to open, use once and return a full product to try a color that isn’t quite right, as I have. “Samplers” would really help reduce the volume of product returns, not to mention reduce waste and carbon footprints – just sayin’.Step up,😀Laura Geller. Make the planet as beautiful as you have me!

    Pricey but worth it!

    The first powder I received had been opened and used, so I returned it for a full refund (easy and quick process). I reordered and was extremely pleased with my purchase. Laura Geller makeup is a bit pricey but well worth it. I was blessed with a complexion that didn’t require makeup, so I reached my 60’s and had never used any type of makeup! Seriously, I didn’t have a clue what to buy, how to apply, if it was layered (?) etc. I started showing signs of rosacea after turning 60, and didn’t know what to do, or how to hide it. For the first time I began purchasing different brands of makeup (Bare Minerals, IT to name a few). All of them looked terrible on me! I’m sure not knowing how to properly apply makeup didn’t help. Anyway, I finally gave up, and went back to a “bare naked” face, which was red and blotchy. Very unattractive, but I didn’t know what else to do. Recently, I wanted to get my daughter something special and asked her what she would like. She said she had been seeing ads for Laura Geller makeup and would like to try that. She just turned 50 and wanted a change from her current makeup routine. She chose several Laura Geller products and I had them shipped to her. She loved them!!! She said she had several compliments from co-workers etc. Having seen the ads myself, I knew that Laura Geller makeup was supposed to be easy to apply and “color correcting”, so I decided to order for myself. I’m so pleased that I did. The “color correcting” foundation is truly amazing! I purchased the retractable Kabuki airbrush with it and it made the application quick, easy and perfect!! In just a couple of minutes I was able to cover my blotchy skin. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Laura Geller makeup to anyone over 50 . The benefits of color correcting makeup can’t be overstated.

    Must get correct shade – very light coverage.

    When i first got this i hated it. Seemed to go right into my lines. The color was lighter than my skin and this really accentuated my lines. I usually wear a medium skin tone. But medium was too light! It was summer and apparently that was the difference. I put it away.Then a few months later, winter, my tan faded so now the color was correct and i really like it.I want to LOVE it, but the coverage is very little light and applying even more, doesn’t work. Id like better coverage myself. So if you are looking for light coverage, this is it! Just make sure you get the correct shade and keep in mind the seasons. Although i didn’t lay out in the sun, just going in and out of places exposed you even with sunscreen and you with be darker than winter.Good luck.

    So light and soft, feels like you’re not wearing makeup!

    I tried this on a whim. Though I’m retired, I still like to wear makeup, but hate liquid or cream foundations…they settled into fine lines, rubbed off on clothing, felt cakey and I hated it. I decided to give this a try and I absolutely love it!!! I use the primer beforehand, then apply this with the kabuki brush, a little of the LG blush and go. If I want to go full makeup, I use LG eyeshadow and add some mascara and I’m good to go. Seriously only takes 5 or so minutes and my skin feels amazingly soft, looks natural. No cakiness and no settling in fine lines. Wish I would’ve found this makes years ago!!

    Expect to return product because of color mismatch

    I am 38 and started having issues with finding a good foundation about 5 years ago when my skin turned to “mature” with more loss of collagen causing fine lines and less tightness. I wish I found this foundation years ago! I am absolutely smitten over this makeup!I have tried Bare Minerals + some others and all trashed because they do not look good – at all – on my skin now like it once did in my 20s. I assumed all mineral powder foundations would be like that until trying Laura Geller Baked foundation. My confidence has been boosted significantly by how good this foundation makes my skin look. No movement or settling anywhere : EXCEPT my deep 11s between my brows. For best looking results remember to be sure you’re using a top notch primer and setting spray while using this product. Also- remember too many skin care products on your skin before applying ANY foundation will degrade your foundation fairly quickly, regardless. ONLY complaints I have about this purchase are mild, but still important to note… read on, below:Before I purchased the Baked Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Powder Foundation in Fair, I tried using the Baked Balance-n-GLOW foundation in Light. Glow in color Light *horribly* mismatched my skin plus the “glow” is ugly; making me look like I had went tanning and not in a good way! I originally bought Light because of the reviews saying how all the foundations run dark. Thought I was safe going one shade lighter. Normally during summer I’m around a medium shade depending how much sun I get… I would never expect to choose FAIR as a shade for myself in my winter skin. With all that said …Fair ended up matching my skin pretty seamlessly!However my teen daughter – it’s still too dark and there’s no lighter to go that I saw.The Porcelain color wouldn’t be lighter it’s just a pink undertone instead of the yellow undertone that the Fair color has.LASTLY: The Balance-n-Brighten is so much prettier looking on aging skin than the Glow version of this foundation- IMO don’t do the Glow , it’s tacky looking to have an entire face looking as if you coated every centimeter of it in highlighter. If you want a glow just use a nice mineral highlighter instead so you can put it were it actually belongs on your face : and that’s NOT a full face of it.

    Good product

    So I have to tell people that I think I messed up my lighter Gellar color by applying a Bobby Brown foundation prep first and it made my palette sticky when I swiped on the pallet. I had to scrape the top surface to take off the sheen! It affected how much product was picked up by the brush! I’ve had the best results with just fresh moisturized skin. So I applied my concealer for under eyes and then followed with the Gellar powder all over and it’s a soft beautiful translucent color. Which works well for me because my skin is fairly decent with just a few spots.I actually purchased this product because I had an elderly client come in wearing it and she looked amazing. (I’m a hairdresser)I would absolutely recommend this for mature skin. It blurred lines. I’m 49.
