I purchased the LG baked basics set from Sephora for around $50 which contains the balance n brighten (bnb), blush n brighten in berry and bronze n brighten .06 oz containers, which all come in little compacts with a half size mirror inside. The containers are in a MAC-like packaging and the size in ample. I personally won't need to re-buy any of the three for a long time. it also comes with a brush in a little holder, it found it hard, severe and stiff. Did not like or intend to use until it is broken in.
I usually don't use any foundation except a light sweep of BE mineral MU if needed. However, I've been trying the bnb for awhile now and I do like it. Its a swirl of beige, nude, lite brownish. The coverage is pretty heavy if used with the wrong brush, however, I've been using the BE flawless Radiance brush and its been working great w/ lite buildable coverage.
I do like it but probably won't re-buy. Worth a try and glad I bought the kit.
I'm south east asian girl with golden medium skin. I have a mini balance n brighten as a part of indulgence collection. While the colour is not a perfect match for me, but still I can use it for foundation. I like how it make my face kinda flawless, but for my dark brown spots, I still have to use concealer.
I am in love with this foundation. It conceals, corrects, covers, and looks fantastic hours after hours. I am super oily and this foundation is one of the few that I only retouched after 9 hours. It looks super natural and feels very silky and comfortable. I highly recommed this to oily skin people because it does not make you feel greasy, itchy and uncomfortable.
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. My mom gave this to me and I thought that the color was too brown / dark (I'm fair - NC20). I finally gave it a try and used it as finishing powder -- the effect was just amazing!!! It looked like I had flawless, glowing skin. Coverage and glow was similar to mineral makeup without the shine. I love love love it :) It lasts all day too.
I purchased this in Fair. Mineral makeups break me out or make me itchy generally speaking but this powder is different. I imagine it could be used as finishing powder or foundation. I use it as foundation. I will say, and maybe it's my compact "swirl" combination, that this goes on just a hair too yellow but in natural daylight, it really looks fine. Wears well. I tend towards an oily nose and the rest of my face is dry. My skin is good and I don't break out, though. This might not work on overly oily or overly dry skin.
I am a 30 year old with thankfully clear skin and I don't wear foundation,that being said when I want to look extra polished and have that staying power for my blush..I use this. It evens out my complexion without feeling cakey or heavy at all. No break outs for me using this product so I am happy. I like most of Laura Geller's blushes not crazy about anything else of hers.
I finally bought this product after reading about it for so long. I am now in love! I put it on before going out to run my errands today and got nothing but compliments on how "bright" and "vibrant" I look...that is a huge compliment for a work from home mom of two toddlers!! I have sensitive skin with a lot of redness and it really calmed the redness and it really made a difference on the darkness under my eyes. I reccomend this product to anyone!
Chalky, Dull, Comes off easily on my husbands shirt, doesnt cover acne scars.
My mom had gotten this in Fair and I tried it on a whim when she said she thought the color was too light for her (I'm extremely white). I use it all the time now. My skin looks really good, but not like I'm wearing makeup. It lasts all day too, no primer needed. I wear Neutrogena sunscreen underneath and my face doesn't look shiny at all. I imagine most women would be the middle shade because Fair is definitely for really fair people. The cool thing about this stuff is that it has flecks of many different colors in it so it will match anyone as long as they pick the right shade range.
I have fair indian skin and use this product as a foundation it is brilliant, it covers acne and scars, don't be fooled this is not drying like a powder or shiney like a mineral foundation. This product is better than any foundation i have ever used and i have used brands such as Chanel, Lancome, Aveda and Estee Lauder.
This product gives a true radiance to my skin i love it.
