        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I was looking for a lighter wear than my double wear foundation. This worked for that purpose, but wiped off with the slightest touch. Even with a moisturizer, primer, setting powder and setting spray. I've already exchanged out for something similar but promised to be longer lasting. Also, I've never noticed my pores before using this foundation. After a few hours the pores on my chin and around my nose were completely visible. I really wanted to love this, as it blends well and it matched my skin color exactly. But it just didn't work for me.

        This foundation just did not work- I loved its lightwieght feel and it ok to put on in the morning but by noon I could already see it coming off. I'm pretty pale and it matched my skin tone but as it would melt off it would make my face look like a bunch of white speckles- I can't explain it! Haha. I even tried setting sprays and powders. I have normal/combination skin. I'm just upset because it was way more expensive than the other brands I'm used to buying that work 10 times better.

                  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.
