    I honestly had high hopes for this product unfortunately it didn't work out for me as it did for others. If you want that quick simple super natural look go for it. I wasn't too fond about the smell either. I have a combination of oily and dry skin. Boy did it bring out the dry a little too well. I returned it.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      I have wasted so much money on foundations, this is by far the best for makiing your skin look perfect. I hate seeing pores and this really helps hide them. My 14 year old takes it because it is so good, but I think her skin is too oily. It gets shiny fairly quick. I would say this is perfect for normal to dry.

        i wanted to love this. It went on so well, but after 2 hours, it looked like i had it on 2 days. I made sure to buy the primer, as well as the setting powder but was so disappointed in the results. Revlon Color Stay + primer + urban decay setting spray works so much better, I hate to say.

                I have red, sensitive, acne-prone skin with a lot of acne scarring and this foundation seems to enhance everything wrong with my face. it's not full coverage, it's very hard to blend in with my beauty blender and it's very watery. the product turns my acne marks into a weird purple color and makes them even more unsightly. do not buy this product if you have the slightest imperfection on your face because it will ENHANCE everything. terrible product, waste of money

                • Q:

                  I need a replacement for my Lorac natural performance foundation. Is this the right product? What color would I use if I had NP4 previously?

                    A:

                    If the shade NP4 worked well for you we would suggest PR5 in the POREfection Foundation. If you are looking for a foundation replacement without SPF similar to the discontinued Natural Performance Foundation, we would suggest Sheer POREfection in the shade PS4.

                • Q:

                  I used shade L2 in the Natural Performance Foundation. What would I wear in the Porefection Foundation? Also, why was the Natural Performance Foundation discontinued? I used it for years. I liked that it didn't contain SPF.

                    A:

                    If the shade NP2 worked well for you in the Natural Performance line the shade PR2 would be similar in color. If you are looking for a SPF option you may want to check out our Sheer POREfection foundation! It offers a similar coverage and wear to the Natural Performance foundation. We hope this helps!

                    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.

                    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.
