        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I bought this product on a third party recommendation that it was good for Sensitive skin. However, it contains iron and titanium oxides which is not good for certain sensitive skin types like mine. The first couple of weeks were good, then one weekend I woke up with my eyelids tender, red, and swollen for several days. I ceased to use the product and my symptoms passed. It is unfortunate because the product does have "buildable" coverage as promised, and much better staying power than my current foundation. Disappointment aside, the packaging totally sucked. The little turn and pump mechanism did not work and I had to tear the pump assembly off with pliers to access my new hope. Bring in the b to f flat trumpets-- this product did not live up to expectations.

            I have oily skin. Usually after an hour, my nose is ridiculously oily. With this foundation, by the end of the day my skin still looks amazing. It blends nicely on my skin and the coverage is buildable. I couldn't be happier with this product.

                  Went in and had this professionally matched. Bought the fair as it matched well. Got it home and used it the next day. I'm 43. I don't many lines or wrinkles but do have a kit if redness, dryness and visible pores. This brought out every bad quality on my face. I used a beauty blender and when that didn't work I tried a budding brush. Returned it. This would be great for someone with lots of pigmentation on their faces but no texture changes.

                            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.

                            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!

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.
