Rated 5 out of 5 by HONEYBEAN SIMPLY THE BEST!!!
I have tried every new foundation that has been aired recently on Q.V.C, not because my skin has been a problem, but just to see if I can improve on balance and brighten which I've used for the last 5 years or more. Well the simple fact is, I can't.
It's not just the ease of applying this product, but the pore coverage, no sinking into the fine lines, no initial scare until fully blended feel I get with the others, when I wonder at what point is it going to be completely blended in and I can safely go out in daylight. Not exaggerating here. With B and B I know that it will be correct the minute I start applying it. I've even had to put it on over other foundations that won't blend properly to get a smooth finish. I still have the others, and will use them as they are the top sellers in a lot of the brands and I will have wasted my money, but I have to think about what I'm doing and concentrate more for a good finish, but with B and B I don't have to think about it at all just go ahead and apply. I wear the fair option. Love this large size.

I've using this product for a few years now. I decided to change from the mineral powder I used to use because of many different layers I had to do, a foundation pot, under eye pot, warmth, concealer and veil all to achieve to a nice completion, which could be time consuming. This is so easy to use all the colours are there in one compact, just swirl your brush and apply all over your face. Then you can you use the light swirl for under your eyes and over the lids. A little mascara, eyeliner, blusher and lipstick and I'm done! really easy. Saw this larger size and brought it because of the great value, as I use it everyday to have that beautiful natural look. Great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by fimfc Great coverage, but messy
I really liked this product and the natural way it looks on my skin. Its so easy to apply and you could probably do it without a mirror
However, I find it is extremely messy! The powder falls onto my clothes, and once it went all over one of my Kipling bags and I struggled to get it off

I bought Balance and Brighten around May 2016 and absolutely loved it! The coverage was fantastic and my late 40's skin looked luminous for the first time in a long time but........
The more I wore the make-up the more frequently my skin started to react to it. My eyes would swell up as if i had been in a boxing match. Embarrassingly this happened on train a to London for an important meeting and also another important social event just to mention a few awful times this happened. I was embarrassed and devastated. It took me a long time to realise it was the Balance and Brighten which was the cause of the skin reaction hence writing the review some time after buying it. I read up on this product and apparently it may be caused by the Talc used in Laura Geller products.
Either way it's frustrating because I genuinely loved how it made my skin look.
I have not had this reaction to any other make up since or before Balance and Brighten, I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fran71 Superb easy foundation
I bought this supersize because it was good value & I thought go on try it. I've been using BM ready foundation for a while (& it's lovely) BUT they've stopped doing it. I like a compact as they travel better & less messy to use.
I'm pleasantly surprised with this. I bought the medium (I use medium beige / medium tan in BM) & it's a good match on my skin. I've used faux tan & it still blends in & matches! Not sure I would need to change shade unless I was VERY tanned on holiday. I'm confident it will still be ok & I could top up with bronzer.
I was concerned it has talc listed on the ingredients, talc can be drying, but my skin has been fine, I then noticed that BM have changed formulas & also has talc.
I'm considering buying another as it's such good value. After using BM mineral foundation for some 10 years I think I'm a LG B&B convert! I never thought I'd like anything as much as BM but this foundation hits the spot #shocking

Rated 5 out of 5 by fullofgrace Love this product
I first bought Balance and Brighten in tan when I wanted light coverage when I was on holiday. I was so impressed with how it looked that also bought the medium for the winter months. This foundation is so easy to use. It simply brushes on and provides great coverage without a 'made up' look. I have high colour, especially on my nose and have found it difficult to get a colour that matches my natural skin tone, but true to its name this product balanced the colour on my face. I love the compact and its handy mirror. I find I do not have to use a lot of it to get the look I want so it is lasting for ages. B&B is my first purchase from Laura Geller and I love it.

I just love this foundation. The best coverage and feels so light weight on my skin. I use both tan and deep shades, I'm really impressed with how long the product has lasted and I use it daily. A fantastic, lightweight product with great coverage. Would recommend this; it's well worth the money!
