      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      I am 52 years old and have yet found a cream foundation that does not accentuate pores and has that look of foundation seeped into pores. I keep going back to bare mineral powder matte as it seems to have a smoother effect or look on my face without that makeup in the pores look.

                I have an olive undertone in my skin thanks to my American Indian heritage (I love my it), so it's always a little more difficult to find the right shade to use, the shade I got is good. The only problem I face as of right now is I forgot to put on primer one day and my foundation looked horrible by the end of the day, my face looked more oily than usual and all of my lovely blemishes where flashing red lights on my face. So always make sure you use your primer with this foundation!

                    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.

                    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?

                    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!
