          Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

          Color matched perfectly. Easy to apply with blender but no matter how I set it this stuff does NOT stay put. I have oily T-zone and normal otherwise. It looks great for 1-2 hours then it starts to shine! Then if I try to blot it I lose a lot of coverage! I tried powder after blotting to fill in but this is a short lasting fix. My face is done within 6 hrs and that doesn't work for me! I typically use pore minimizer primer and setting spray. I changed the order of application and I tried without one or the other. If I followed setting spray with translucent powder I looked to dry. I wish it would adhere better or last longer!!! I'm in my late 30's FYI

            Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

            I read reviews saying that this would be good for dry skin as it tends to make oily skin worse. So I thought it would be perfect for me since I have dry skin. coverage was nice, but it settles into fine lines and made my skin so greasy. It just sat on top of my skin and never looked blended in, and I don't know how but made my dry skin look dryer and oily at the same time. tried a beauty blender, foundation brush everything even a matte setting spray. ended up returning

                I bought this product because literally every beauty site ever says it's the best for oily skin. But if you're like me and have ULTRA oily skin this is not for you. By the middle of my workday this foundation would be dripping off my face. I tried several different primers, different skin care routines, different application methods and nothing worked. I used it until the bottle was empty just in case there was something I was doing wrong but it never improved for me so I moved on to another product

                    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.

                    We hope this helps!

                    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.

                  I am wanting to switch from Bare Minerals Medium Beige Matte foundation to a liquid and was wanting to see what you would recommend for a shade. I am the perfect shade of Medium Beige in BM, so I see you also have a medium beige in your product line. Is this very similar or would you say it is darker/lighter?

                  Any advice or thoughts would be very helpful! Thank you!
