    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.

    I like a product that blends very well. I hate when the foundation looks good from a distance, but up close it looks thick and settles into imperfections. This one worked perfectly for me. Blended great and hides what it needs to. Definitely would recomend.

            Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

            I use this product everyday and love it. The color is spot on and it blends well. It doesn't provide a matte finish, but I don't want that . . . it provides a healthy glow. With some products I have an eye sensitivity, and end up not being able to continue use, but with this product I don't have any issues.

              I have oily acne prone skin and this product is perfect for it. It goes on smoothly and evens out my skin tone perfectly. I was using MAC studio fix but it oxodizes throughout the day. This doesn't! Bought it for my wedding and my skin looked flawless in every photo.

              Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

              I am a very pale person so it's rare that I find something that matches me perfectly and it did just that! I also am very oily and have super acne prone skin and this never makes me break out and keeps the oilyness down quite a bit and lasts all day, a little goes a long way with this and I don't think I will ever change it's a good price for how much product you get I use 1-2 pumps on my beauty blender and gives me great coverage! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS.

              I was so excited to try this foundation, so I was genuinely sad when I finally bought just to find that it's extremely streaky and impossible to blend. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

                  We would recommend Natural Performance Foundation as it has more a natural, matte finish and provides medium to full coverage. It is oil, paraben, and fragrance-free and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

                  We would recommend trying LORAC Natural Performance Foundation which is a medium to full coverage foundation that has a natural, matte finish. It is also oil, fragrance, and paraben free and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

                  We would also recommend using POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder to set your foundation for a poreless-looking, smooth,matte finish. This powder also works great for touching up throughout your day.

                  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!
