    Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

    Was told it was a dewy finish by a sales representative, which appealed to me because I have dry skin. Only slightly dewy and the light shade comes out more or a hello tone. Still trying to decide if I like the product!

    Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

    I have been through a million foundations all ranging from drug store to high end! This foundation is amazing and it covers flawlessly. It's light enough to where you can add a second coat if you want, if not- you still get great coverage. I'll never by another.

            Need concealer for areas needing more coverage due to more sheer or light coverage. But have always preferred sheer to light coverage. I dont like heavy, thick foundation. If you prefer a matte foundation, then this is not for you.

              I wanted the one with spf but they were sold out of my color so I picked this one up not realizing it said sheer. I went ahead & tried it out anyway & was surprised at the coverage. It's a medium buildable foundation. Very easy to blend & lasts pretty much all day with my oily skin. I'm very happy with this product & will repurchase.

                  I been looking for a nice foundation and this is clearly not it. It goes on poorly and doesn't stay on very well. I have kind of dry skin and you can see nothing but flakes. Even my off brand rite aid foundation for half the price covers better. Very disappointed to have wasted money on this.

                    The lady who showed me this product said it was a full coverage foundation. Sadly, it is not. Both my sister and I used it and it caused major breakouts. I have oily skin and she has dry skin. Waste of money.

                        Unfortunately we are not familiar with other branded complexion shades. However the second lightest shade in our line up would be the PS2. This shade has a beautiful yellow tone and is fair but not porcelain in depth. How this helps!
