            I really like this product especially with my Lorac Matte Finish Primer but I wish this was more of a Matte Finish itself. But with a light dust of powder and a setting powder over it it is fine.

                  • Q:

                    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!

                      Unfortunately we are not familiar with other line's shades. However we would recommend PR5 if your looking for as shade that is medium with a beige tone. We also always recommend visiting a nearby ULTAY store to have one of their knowledgeable staff members professionally color match you. We hope this helps!

                      A:

                      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?

                      A:

                      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!

                      A:

                      Unfortunately we are not familiar with other brands shades. However we would recommend the shade PR3 based off of the description. It is best to visit your local Ulta Beauty store to have an artist help match the perfect shade for your complexion. We have not experienced any complaints about oxidation. We recommend setting your foundation with a light brushing of the LORAC Baked Perfecting Powder in PF2 to avoid any slip or color change throughout the day.
