          I always struggle to find a foundation that covers my breakouts without giving me cake face. This product provides great coverage in just one application. I had been using powder but this liquid is great and dries to a powder looking, matte finish. It's clean and light weight. Loving it so far!

                This product looks great right after you apply it. However once I left my house and exposed my face to the world the foundation started getting greasy. I could use my finger and wipe across my forehead and all of my makeup in that wipe would come off. It didn't last long. My face felt so gross towards the end of the day. My pores looked more defined and noticeable. I applied it with the Lorac pressed powder and Lorac powder contour set. I love those two products but this liquid foundation isn't worth it.

                  So far I haven't had any cons with this product. I have been searching for a product that gives me good coverage and not heavy and I think I just found it! It is very easy to blend out and apply. (I apply it with a damp beauty blender) But, of course this may not apply for everyone, but I know I love it!

                  • Q:

                    I used shade L2 in the Natural Performance Foundation. What would I wear in the Porefection Foundation? Also, why was the Natural Performance Foundation discontinued? I used it for years. I liked that it didn't contain SPF.

                      A:

                      If the shade NP2 worked well for you in the Natural Performance line the shade PR2 would be similar in color. If you are looking for a SPF option you may want to check out our Sheer POREfection foundation! It offers a similar coverage and wear to the Natural Performance foundation. We hope this helps!

                      The PR2 Light has a bit more of a pink undertone than PR1 Fair. We would recommend the PR2 for you in this case. However we always recommend being professionally color matched by one of the beauty associates at your local ULTA store.

                      A:

                      Yes, POREfection Foundation is a long-wear foundation. To ensure extra long-lasting wear, we recommend prepping the skin with POREfection Mattifying Face Primer and setting the foundation with POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder. Using a primer to prep and powder to set your foundation will help keep the foundation in place and fight against oils that can break apart the formula and cause a loss in coverage.

                      We develop all of our products with all skin types including sensitive skinned customers in mind. This formula is oil, paraben and fragrance free formula. It is also infused with anti-aging antioxidants of Vitamins A & E, Olive Leaf Extract, Lemon Fruit Extract and Papaya Fruit Extract to help soothe, nourish and rejuvenate.

                      A:

                      She could be using a foundation with the wrong undertone. We recommend to have her try a light shade foundation with a yellow undertone rather than a beige or pink undertone.
                      Try using Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS2 (Light) or POREfection Foundation SPF in PR2 (Light). Each of these shades are for lighter complexions and have a yellow undertone that might match her better. Sheer POREfection offers light to medium coverage, and POREfection Foundation SPF provides medium to full coverage with SPF benefits.

                      A:

                      Absolutely. POREfection Foundation is formulated with Vitamin E which helps to add moisture to the skin. For best results, we recommend first prepping the skin with I'm So Sensitive Soothing Face Primer (Item #: 2253465) to keep the skin hydrated throughout the day. Having the layer of primer underneath the foundation will ensure the dry skin does not absorb in the foundation. It will instead absorb the primer and not weaken coverage. We also recommend using fingers or a sponge for application and blending with a blotting/patting motion.
