This product was horrible for my skin

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      I have normal skin. I very very rarely get 1 pimple and I've never had a breakout . Using this foundation gave me a lot of little white bumps not exactly pimples on my forehead . It also exaggerated the size of my pores. I've also noticed the pigmentation changed throughout the day and it also made my skin dry after a couple hours of wearing it like the product was sucking moisture out of my skin. I always moisturize and use primer before hand and I've never experienced this before. Overall I just didn't like this product.

      Smells like sunscreen and has that thick texture that I have found with most foundations that have an SPF of 15 or 20. Will most likely be returning for a refund.

          This foundation is really great. I started using it last fall so I never really had the chance to wear it during extreme hot weather. It does run and makes you feel like it's melting off your face during these circumstances but extreme hot weather isn't really makeup friendly to begin with. This foundation is super long lasting, easy to blend and a little bit of product goes a long way. This is my go to foundation. I love it and will keep using it!

                        We recommend trying POREfection Foundation in PR7 – Medium Tan as it offers the same warm medium tone as NP4.

                        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!

                        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!

                        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.
