            I am a bit of a grease ball, so I don't know if it is fair to say it doesn't stay on all day. I think it does make my makeup stay on longer, but not like I had hoped.

                Love how this primer does not leave my skin feeling oily a few hours after application. Other big name primers have left my skin oily and caused me to break out. This one does not cause my skin to break out and stays matte finish through my work day. Its a great product.

                            This formula has not been tested for use on the eyes. However, you may want to try our Behind The Scenes Eye Primer for your eye area. The eye primer can be purchased separately or a mini size primer comes with all full size LORAC PRO and Unzipped Palettes.

                            LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals.

                            POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer is intended help achieve a poreless-looking, smooth, matte finish and long-lasting makeup wear. It is suitable for all skin types and should not cause breakouts; however, if you are looking to prevent breakouts, we do suggest using an alternative method in addition to the use of POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer.
