Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

I have mixed emotions about this product. A friend recommended it to me because I have extremely sensitive skin. I normally do not use any foundation but decided to give this one a chance. The color matched my olive skin tone well and I'm happy it never oxidized on me. However, I would not recommend it for individuals with very sensitive skin. About 4 days after using, I started to break out all over my face. It's also not great in humid weather and turns my skin oily and starts to sweat off as well.

Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

I've tried MANY foundations. I fell in love with Lorac POREfection last summer. PR4 was for winter skin tone and I got PR6 for summer tan. So I figured I'd order PR5 online for the interim, but I got it and it's too light. It's def not for tan or reddish or medium skin tones. I have to now take it back to a store to replace it with PR6. Just an FYI.

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

          I have used all sorts of foundations in the past. Usually, they work great AT FIRST and then go downhill. POREfection foundation is perfect for me and every time I run out, I buy more. Although it is probably the priciest foundation I have ever used, it's well worth the money. I use a foundation brush to apply and it goes on smooth and looks dewey (it's not matte) and fresh. You need very little of it for every day use and u can add more if you need more coverage. It's even great for under the eyes or places where make up cakes (line, forehead, etc). I can't recommend this product enough!

                • Q:

                  I need a replacement for my Lorac natural performance foundation. Is this the right product? What color would I use if I had NP4 previously?

                    A:

                    If the shade NP4 worked well for you we would suggest PR5 in the POREfection Foundation. If you are looking for a foundation replacement without SPF similar to the discontinued Natural Performance Foundation, we would suggest Sheer POREfection in the shade PS4.

                    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!

                    Hi Cheryl!

                    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.
