    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!!!

            I like this powder. It blends well with my skin tone and looks very natural. It's light weight and spreads evenly across face. It also eliminates any shone. The downside is that it doesn't have much cover and doesn't last long, so you have time apply it throughout the day. I used smashbox liquid foundation and then put apply Lorca over it. This helps to eliminate the shine.

            I am not a makeup guru, but, powder has always been something that I've used. I've tried multiple brands and so far, this one is my favorite. The compact that the powder is in is pretty. Furthermore, the powder itself is fine and it goes on smoothly.

              Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

              As someone who has suffered from bad acne and VERY oily, sensitive skin ever since high school, I had tried just about every product on the market for a good powder that 1) did not break me out, 2) helped control oil, 3)covered my acne and scarring and redness, 4) did not look cakey. Let me tell you this foundation is it. It can be a little powdery/cakey if you apply too much, but that goes for any powder. I have the best results honestly wearing it alone or just with primer. I have tried just about every big name oil control brand with and without primers, and this one works by far the best, even without primer. Even looks natural and not oddly colored or streaky in "car lighting", which I find to be pretty rare. Super easy to apply, takes 2 seconds for great coverage all day, and helps reign in the oil. Only complaint being that it can be expensive, as you do hit the pan pretty quickly.

                    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.

                    We recommend POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder in PF3.5 (Medium Beige) or PF4 (Medium). PF3.5 works perfectly as a setting powder to Sheer POREfection® Foundation in PS5 (Medium Beige). If you are looking for more of a full coverage use from the powder, you can also try using PF4.
