Birchbox Breakdown

We may be crazy for cupcakes and cookies, but the latest baked good to catch our eye is calorie-free (and the opposite of 'cakey'). Laura Geller's silky self-adjusting foundation swirls together several pigments into a baked powder, making for a light, long-wearing brightness capable of evening out the ruddiest skin tones. Free of paraben and mineral oil, this rich baked powder foundation uses the antioxidants in centella asiatica and white tea to battle the effects of aging while balancing redness or dullness in your complexion. With three highly versatile shades, it can be worn alone or with additional foundation.

How to Use

Using a brush, apply all over the face as a regular foundation, layering as needed. Apply as a powder over your regular liquid foundation for a smoother, more substantial coverage.

Seriously a miracle product

I didn't have high hopes for this when I received it as a part of the Laura Geller Piece of Cake collection, but I am in LOVE with it!! I have very light skin so I'm probably between the Porcelain and the Fair, but I received "Fair" with the set and it blends beautifully so I don't look mis-matched at all, even though it's a slightly darker shade. The foundation is buildable - I HIGHLY recommend getting the LG travel foundation brush to go with it, as it really does an amazing job of evenly distributing the product. You can also adjust the brush so that it gives heavier coverage or lighter coverage. I have very, very dry skin, but this foundation actually looks way better on me than any liquid foundation or BB/CC cream I've tried. I also have rosacea, and this product is one of the only foundations that does not cause my rosacea to react/flare up. And I can use just enough of the product to cover my redness without having to use much at all. My complexion is very smooth and looks great in photos, and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything at all on my face! I seriously can't recommend this enough, especially to those who have sensitive/problematic skin. Just make sure you use a good moisturizer to "prime" it (you do not need a separate primer underneath this, in my opinion, just moisturizer).

Love it
Purchased

First time ever trying the baked foundation. It covers better than my old mineral foundation that I used for years. My face feels good with it on (if that even make sense lol). I used about 3 layers to get the coverage I wanted. I have dark spots and red spots and acne spots. All my flaws were covered. Looked natural. Highly recommend.

Not for me
Purchased

I was so excited to try this foundation since the reviews were so great, but this foundation wasn't for me. I have a light complexion with olive undertones, but the fair was too dark for me. The foundation looked more like bronzer on my skin than a natural coverage. Overall, my skin looked a little bit brighter, but the color didn't work for me.

Silky smooth; Perfect cover
Purchased

This powder is light and silky, and is easy to apply. It doesn't look or feel like I have any product on my face. It balances my tone and covers age spots.

YES... Finally
Purchased

I finally found what I was looking for....what I needed. I do not like to feel the foundation on my face, never have. So this powder trend is just right. I have a smaller size Laura Geller baked correcting foundation, but I find it is too dark now that we are entering the fall months here in New England. The tan has faded so I went with the lightest shade, and LOVE IT!!!
