    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    I tried it with primer and it settled into my pores even after applying setting powder. However, I saw a YouTube video where the hostess said to first lightly apply setting powder then the foundation then setting powder as usual. After doing that, it never settled into my pores and wrinkles. Looked great. Oxidized though.

        My skin is acne prone. This foundation is oil free, but doesn't feel like it. It does not cause my skin to break out. Other foundations I've tried have caused break outs. It goes on smoothly. I don't use a lot, but you could use more if you want more coverage.

              I like this product because it doesn't break me out like most foundations. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's not matte and tends to feel greasy after a few hours. I find myself having to reapply.

              • Q:

                I use the POREfection foundation in PR6 and the color matches however it gives me a pinkish undertone and makes me look a bit grayed out. I was wondering what color in this formula would be more suitable or comparable to PR6 but either a more yellow/olive undertone.

                  A:

                  Natural Performance Foundation comes in a smaller variety of shades. We would recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation to achieve the same benefits you are getting from both products mentioned. Sheer POREFection is a light weight, oil, fragrance, and paraben free foundation that provides light to medium coverage with a natural finish. For a deeper, warm foundation shade, we recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS8 (Tan); however, for the best shade match to your complexion, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty to have an artist help match your foundation shade in person.

                  A:

                  LORAC Natural Performance Foundation is a light weight foundation formula that should not separate around or into dry spots. For the best application, we recommend trying "I'm So Sensitive" Soothing Face Primer which is a moisturizing, water-based face primer that will help hydrate your skin prior to applying your foundation. All LORAC's Foundations can be applied using a foundation brush, sponge or fingertips.

                  A:

                  LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals and we are not owned by another company.
