      I tried this foundation using a sponge, and foundation brush.. I used primer and setting powder.. felt like this makeup never set, an hour after application it would rub off. It has a horrible chemical smell that I could smell for the entire time I had it on. I had to wash my face and start over with different foundation. I wouldn't use this foundation again if it were free.

              The sales consultant recommended this one. She said it's full coverage, last all day, and a slightly dewy finish. But for me I have dry skin and it looked matte so I Did not like the finish. I clung into my dry patches but when I swatched it in the store it looked very creamy and luminous. The coverage is medium but I'm a one and done girl who likes full coverage with natural-luminous finish. This one is not for me.

                I love the level of SPF with this product. It provides full coverage for me to wear every day, yet it has a natural look. I wish I could use less product to achieve these results (past MAC foundation user where a little went a long way), but it is still worth the purchase.

                    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!
