    Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

    They were out of the foundation from Lorac in my shade/formulation so I tried this more sheer coverage and I love it. Perfect for summer and great coverage. Lucky me, I never would have picked this up on my own.

    This is hands down the best foundation I have ever owned! It goes on smooth and it doesn't irritate my skin. I only have to use one pump, and it covers my whole face. It stays on all day and doesn't rub off easy. absoluetely perfect!

            This is the first time I've bought foundation that I didn't find at the drugstore and I love it. The first day I used it i received compliments about how good my skin looked! It is a little pricey but it's way worth it. It does go on more yellow but that fades as you blend it on your face.

                Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

                After going through several brands at the store I settled on this foundation for its pigmentation matching and the fact that it has hardly any smell. I have been using Maybelline FitMe for months, but it's a little heavy for the summer. Two major cons for me: it settles horribly into wrinkles and becomes cakey. It is also very, very sheer. It's hard to apply it in layers as it settles even more. I'm disappointed that I paid almost $30 for a foundation that doesn't work as well as my $9 one.

                Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

                So I went in looking for something new that I could wear to work that wasn't full coverage since I work in the medical field, but would even out my skin tone. I've also lately had dry patches on the sides of my nose and around my eyebrows. The lady was nice and found my perfect color. And although it looks great as a finished product, I did notice some flaking around my dry patches/ clinging. Which I'm bummed about. I'm still going to keep using it and just try to get my skin more hydrated. It also dries down really quick, so you have to work quick. Once it dries it has a nice matte/ satin finish. And I thought it had pretty good coverage, it's definitely just light/ medium but just enough to even out my blotchy redness. Overall I'll buy again, just if you have some bad dry patches like me, you may want to hold out. If you don't, then this is a gen!

                    If you are looking for a more natural/matte finish, our Sheer POREfection formula is the best choice. We recommend visiting your local ULTA to have one of their Prestige Consultants match you with your perfect shade.

                    The original POREfection Foundation has a satin effect on the skin while the Sheer POREfection Foundation has a natural finish on the skin. But both formulas offer a wide range of neutral to pink undertone shades.
