    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    This primer works so well, that I have forgotten to apply foundation because it looks like I already have it on! You just can't get better than that! I use it daily and buy another tube as soon as I open one, so I won't run out; if I could give it 10 stars, I would!!!

        I have very oily skin and my main reason for buying a primer was because my foundation would seperate halfway through my work day and would look scaly. This has totally kept my foundation well kept together.

        My new favorite primer

        By Angela

        from USA

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

        I have oily, breakout-prone skin and to make matters worse, we are having an incredibly hot/humid summer. I was tired of my makeup sliding off my face during the day and looking shiny/greasy so I looked for a better primer. The girl at ulta recommended this one and after using it for a week, I absolutely love it. It really helps keep my makeup on my face, makes my pores disappear, and keeps me looking at most "dewy" not greasy. I wish there was a travel size!

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.
