Beauty VIP of the Week: Laura Gellar Ethereal Balance

This week my Beauty VIP is Laura Geller’s Ethereal Balance. I’m kind of obsessed with her Balance-n-Brighten right now. It’s one of those products that I bought awhile ago but got home and it got lost somewhere in the abyss that is my stash. In fact, I still haven’t touched the box I bought because I’ve been using Ethereal Balance instead. I received this as a sample when I visited New York in May… that’s how long it took for me to give this a try. Bad, bad Carla.

What I love about this product is I can have varying amount of coverage to even out my skin and blush in one product, freeing up my makeup bag for my other must haves. It’s also really easy for me to do if I’m in a hurry, which I always am in the mornings during the week. If I want to concentrate coverage in one area, I use it with my Cargo Magic Brush otherwise I use my Becca Kabuki Brush for everyday wear. I can combine the shades together to give my skin a glow or I can use them separately. I love have my foundation and blush in one compact, it is so convenient.

The shade in this compact is slightly darker than the one I would wear in Balance-n-Brighten but it still works for me. I think Laura Geller’s shades with this product are pretty forgiving so it would still work for light to medium skin tones. Unfortunately, this only comes in one shade so darker skin tones are out of luck but hopefully that is remedied soon.
