            This is a great foundation for a heavier coverage. But, it doesn't feel heavy when you are wearing it. Creates a nice base that you can build and layer on. Doesn't look caked on. Reduces appearance of large pores.

                  I have oily skin and live where there's alot of humidity. So I needed something that wouldn't get cakey, crease, or look horrible after a couple hours out. This foundation gives you amazing coverage and is oil free. It has held up to my oily skin and humidity. It doesn't smell weird or make my skin feel like it has alot of foundation on it like Bareminerals Bare skin did.

                  Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

                  I like this foundation it minimizes pores as it says the only thing I can complain about it that oxidizes right on the tip of my nose where other foundations I've used have not however that may just be my skin BC my nose is the only place I catch this. With that being said I LOVE the packaging - with this pump and bottle is it almost impossible to waste any of the foundation which I like BC other pump systems leave lots of foundation around the bottle THIS DOES NOT it catches all of that and the moment it was pumped to the top and I thought I was out it lasted another two weeks with the way it pushes all the foundation to the top. The foundation it's self also wears nice and lasts long and the color is great to match.

                      A:

                      POREfection® Foundation in PR1 (FAIR) and PR2 (LIGHT) do have yellow undertones and is for fair skin tones, so it sounds like it would match your complexion well. We recommend visiting your local Ulta to meet with a beauty consultant who can help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.

                  • Q:

                    I want to use a foundation that will help minimize the appearance of pores and even out my skin tone but not one that is too heavy. Would POREfection Foundation or POREfection Sheer Foundation be better for this? I don't really have many blemishes or anything that needs to be covered, just some freckles and a few old acne scars, but my main concern is my large pores.

                    I currently use Lorac Natural Performance NP 3. What color would match that in the POREfection line?

                      Hi Amy,

                      LORAC would recommend you the Sheer POREfection Foundation. It is light in coverage and feel however it is buildable if you are desiring more coverage in certain areas. If NP3 was a good match for you than the shade PS2 in the Sheer POREfection would be a good match. PS2 has a bit more of a yellow undertone than NP3. We hope this helps!

                      A:

                      Unfortunately we are not familiar with other brands shades. However we would recommend the shade PR3 based off of the description. It is best to visit your local Ulta Beauty store to have an artist help match the perfect shade for your complexion. We have not experienced any complaints about oxidation. We recommend setting your foundation with a light brushing of the LORAC Baked Perfecting Powder in PF2 to avoid any slip or color change throughout the day.
