How it work


How to use it

How to use it

  1. Apply immediately after moisturizing. Shake bottle to mix duo-phases, then saturate a cotton ball with formula.
  2. Sweep over face and chin, avoiding the eye area. The coverage should feel wet.
  3. Allow to dry, then smooth out with fingertips. Apply a second coat if additional coverage is desired. Wear alone or under makeup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Shake It! I cannot say enough about Lazlo Shake It. I am 63 and have been using this since I was 16 years old. I do not like wearing heavy face foundations. They feel so smothering compared to Shake It. When you discontinued it a few years ago I tried so many products (and spent so much money) trying to find a replacement. There is nothing that works in the same way. I am so happy it has returned. I am stocking up because I fear you might discontinue it again. The only thing I need now is the wonderful controlling powder that worked so perfectly with the Shake It. Please don't discontinue it again, and if possible bring back the powder! Thank You!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally - Shake-It is back! This was perfect for a no make-up girl with very sensitive combination skin, I have been using Erno Laszlo since I was in my 20's. I am sorry you don't have skin tone options - and I am hoping your 'neutral' will not have any of the yellow tones. My last Shake-It tone color was porcelain. I would hope you will have a good response to this product so you can diversity. I could see buying one tone for the summer and one for the winter due to changes from tanning. Such a light and non-greasy product, yet it evened out my skin tone like magic. I am looking forward to ordering it! Now if you could just bring back your eye concealer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have classic for my older combo skin I started using Laszlo when I was in high school in the 1970’s and continued to use it until everything changed. I was extremely disappointed when everything changed. I hope this will be a new trend back to what was a tried and true skin ritual with all the variety you could use to mix and match depending on the seasons or if your skin was experiencing changes. I’m going to order this and luckily I have light skin. I am hoping they will make it again for all skin tones as they used to, or maybe they can mix everyone’s individually? I hope this step will be a springboard to get back to the original rituals. Love this so much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One color?! I have been a laszlo customer since 1979 and I was crushed when the shake-its (of all types), the duophase face powder and other make-up products were eliminated. I was so excited to see the shake-its until I realized there was only one color and no finishing powder. If this is a trial, you are setting the product up for failure without color choices(like soft beige,) and the finishing powder. Last time you brought back the powder with out the shake-it which also made no sense. Please offer colors and at least one powder. Relaunch the line well and you will have another new generation to help keep Laszlo going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is amazing and exceeded my expectations I just got mine in the mail today. For reference-My skin color is 3c1 on Estée Lauder’s chart so I’m medium/cool. I thought it may be too light but it is truly is universal as they claimed because it works well with my complexion. This shake it by Erno Laslo is soo good! I have oily skin and Usualy wear powder and sometimes liquid makeup...but don’t want to use it everyday. However if I don’t use powder daily I just get really oily. This Erno Lazlo product is so good because it Is allowing me to use the bare minimum product and mattifies my skin and makes me comfortable and natural looking. I love this and will definitely repurchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin thanks you! I was so thrilled to see Shake-It return to Erno Laszlo! It works so well with the ritual I began using over 40 years ago. The original directions for my ritual involved phelityl oil, active phelityl soap, active phelityl cream, then Shake-It blended with the cream and blotted. I looked at your Marilyn directions and tried using just the soap, cream, and Shake-It-It for this warmer weather in the daytime and kept using the cream at night. My skin has tightened dramatically. When I lived in Boston in my 20's, a purchase of the Erno Laszlo Ritual cleared my skin so dramatically that I was asked to model clothes and do runway work! Thank you, Dr. Laszlo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blast to the Past It is difficult to express in words the level of excitement I felt when I saw that Erno Lazlo brought back the Shake-It Tinted Treatment. Way back in the early 70's this product was a vital part of my daily routine. I loved it then just as I love it now. I hope Erno Lazlo makes it a permanent edition. When applied it feels so cool and refreshing unlike heavier based foundations. It is not a total cover up but it blends the various tones of my skin so that my skin looks fresh and refreshed. After cleansing, using my timeless serum, and moisturizer, I apply a small amount of concealer under my eyes and then apply the Shake-It Tinted Treatment and I am good to go all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Take us back to basics This reintroduced basic Laszlo product (it is a treatment, not makeup) performs its function as it always did, prior to being discontinued. It was part of my 1 o'clock regimen for 40 years, and there simply is no replacement for it. The limitation of only one shade is unfortunate; it has a chalky appearance that Light Beige did not have on my skin. It was used in conjunction with Light Controlling Powder, which was discontinued years ago. All those products kept my skin in perfect condition, and I've noticed a decline in my skin's health without them. A return to Erno Laszlo's basic skin care regimens with their o'clock classifications, using original formulations, would be greatly appreciated.

Is an additional toner needed prior to moisturizing? Or will the Shake It lotion applied post-moisturizer suffice?

Asked by: JennyBug
We recommend using a toner in addition to the Shake It. The Shake It is more of a finishing treatment, especially with the tint, and can be used as either a final touch, or as a base for heavier coverage. A toner works to help prep skin for serum and moisturizer.

Is this product good for African American and darker skin tones?

Asked by: Na6767
We only offering one color in the Shake It, Neutral, as it was the most popular color and can be worn by many skin colors if blended correctly, however darker skin tones may still find it too light.

I used to apply shake-it at night over active phelityl cream. Is this still a good idea?

Asked by: Margaux
They used to have a product called Regular Controlling Lotion which was similar but untinted for nighttime use. It was excellent, in my opinion and helped normalize oiliness vs dryness. There was a stronger product called Heavy Controlling Lotion for oilier skin. I am so sad that the company discontinued many of the really unique and useful products EL was famous for.

Is this good for sensitive or dry skin?

Asked by: Annette
While dry skin can use it carefully, we would not recommend using this if you have sensitive skin, as it contains alcohol, which may bother you. It is best for normal to oily skin.

Can men wear this? It was already discontinued when I started using EL. I’ve always wanted to try it and experience the full classic ritual.

If you put moisturizer on before shake it, do you follow with sunblock before or after shake it???

Asked by: Cindy10711
We recommend using your full routine, including sunblock, and letting it sink in for a few minutes, prior to using the Shake It. As the Shake It has a tint, it should be your final step.

Hello when are the other shades going to be brought back? If you are not a fair skinned person shade 1 will not work. It will either be too pale or it will disappear into the skin without the tint being visible, so it will be just like a toner.

Asked by: Bunny_Wabbit
We only offering one color in the Shake It, Neutral, as it was the most popular color and can be worn by any skin color if blended correctly.
