Laura Geller Double Deal Real Deal Foundation & Remedy Stick Review and Swatches
There’s something fabulous of getting two beauty products in one. It’s more bang for your buck, it’s exciting, geeky packaging, it’s multitasking beauty, it’s me sweating the little stuff…..
I can’t help myself. I just kinda dig doubling my pleasure.
The new Laura Geller Double Deal Real Deal Foundation & Remedy Stick features not only a foundation but also a primer in one cool, travel friendly stick design!
Take a peek!

If you travel alot or just like taking the less is more route you’ll love the design of Laura Geller The Double Deal. The chubby stick is home to not one product but two and allows you to flip the stick to apply not only your primer but also your foundation in one design!
The Real Deal Remedy side of the stick is a prep for your makeup. It’ll fill pores, blur fine lines and minor imperfections, and just generally act as a prep for your makeup. I found the formula a touch drying and mattifying so I think I’ll stick to using it in the Summer when my face is considerably less drier. I’m not really sure how to describe the texture of the product, it glides on a bit roughly and patchy but can be smoothed out with fingertips and creates a nice base for makeup while remaining lightweight and comfortable. I didn’t get any itchy silicone feel from this so it did have a very soothing wear on my skin.
Flip the stick and you’ll find a cream foundation. Kinda reminds me of Benefit Playsticks, remember those? The formula isn’t particularly creamy and creeps into the realms of a mattifying cream to powder but it does wear flawlessly. My skin looks super bright with a nice natural finish after application and thankfully, although powdery, it didn’t accentuate dry areas. I can easily see this becoming more of a staple for Summer though as the glide of the foundation would prove nicer on more oily skin than my own I imagine.
Coverage is easily buildable so you can get nice, even coverage that eases dullness while concealing problem areas.
Both the foundation and primer are a touch to dry for me so I’ll be assigning this one to Summer. I absolutely loved how flawless it looked but felt it would look even better if my skin wasn’t so dry!
The product contains SPF 15 but a higher level of sun protection would be nice.
- Those with oily skin!
- Those who like travel friendly beauty that allows you to carry less but still have more (foundation and primer in one stick keeps things light in your makeup bag).
- Those who want flawless, even coverage that wears well without oxidizing too quickly (this wears fresh for around five hours).
- Those with drier skin (you may feel the glide is a bit dry on this and the powdery finish isn’t quite ideal for your skin).
I actually really liked this alot and think it’ll be a staple product for warmer weather use. The product doesn’t quite glide on as smoothly as I would like due to my drier skin which makes it an ideal pick for those with oily skin as it’ll mattify well. The foundation really brightens my skin up considerably and creates a nice flawless finish.
Quite a likey!
