      My HG powder. I've converted everyone I know to this. Finely milled, smooth and evens out your skin tone and texture. Will not use any other. And for the price, I purchased 4 different shades for different times of the year as well as to lightly contour.

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        After always trying new face powders for my very oily and slightly acne prone skin I'm happy with this buy. I use it along with other oil prevention like Urban Decay's de Slick spray and Smashbox's Photo Finish pore minimizing so I wouldn't say that this product alone works great for oily skin. It works good with everything else I use. The coverage isn't the greatest. Really have to work the powder to get a lot on the brush. I follow with Pur's Shine Control Powder on top and I'm happy with the combo.

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        Sorry to say that I returned this powder. It is NOT bad, but I think better for a more oily skin. My face looked dry and the powder seemed to accentuate flaws. I have combination skin, semi-oily in the T-Zone. For the $$$ I would expect a better performing powder. I used it alone over moisturizer and also over a Lorac foundation. It wasn't great for me in either case.

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

          I have very dry and sensitive skin, so I was very skeptical when this powder foundation was recommended to me, especially given the price of the product (I had never really ventured into the world of high end makeup before). Now the Lorac Porefection Baked Powder is my holy grail! It is very pigmented and has completely eliminated any need to wear liquid foundation. It is very easy to build up for more coverage using a wet beauty blender sponge. I find that a layer of this powder over my primer and concealer, all set with a few spritzes of rose water as setting spray, leaves me with a natural looking glow that lasts all day long. Using so few products really eliminates the problems I used to have with looking cakey later in the day. This powder does not settle into my fine lines and does not further dry out my flaky skin. I personally prefer a more natural glow, but the powder does provide a nice matte finish without any setting spray, if that is more your style. I love this product and I am constantly receiving compliments on how naturally flawless my skin looks!

          Love this powder! Makes my complexion look flawless. I replaced my MAC studio fix powder with this. I never thought I would find something I liked better, but this powder doesn't settle in creases as quickly, has a beautiful matte color, and is perfect for blending. Recommended this to my mom, and she loves it too!

            Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

            This is by far, the BEST powder foundation out there! I have oily skin and large pores and tend to breakout. This powder has salycilic acid in it so it helps to prevent and treat the acne, while making your pores look smaller! I live in Florida so with my oily skin and the heat, I need something light that still gives good coverage and controls the oil and this does the job. It's gentle on your skin and provides the perfect amount of coverage when you're looking for something other than a liquid foundation. I've tried pressed powders from practically every brand and this hands down is the BEST!!!

                    If you are looking to set your foundation/base We would recommend a light density fluffy brush. If you are looking to achieve coverage or additional coverage to your complexion use a slightly denser brush. For a full coverage application you could also use a sponge or beauty blender. We hope this helps!

                    A:

                    We have not had any complaints of flashback. This is a colored powder and does not contain sunscreen, so the chance of flashback is very minimal. The powder will help with a typical level of oil and is great for touchups.

                    The LORAC POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder can be used as a setting powder by applying it with a light touch. However the powders are so beautifully and strongly pigmented that they definitely may be used as a powder foundation.
