            I like to use this as a daily liquid to give me a little more coverage than a basic powder. It feels great on my face and most medium coverage powders will step it up a notch, without looking too cakey. I know it's meant to be a shear, so it can be a little messy, depending on how you apply.

            Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

            I really like this foundation. Medium coverage but easily buildable, blends easily with brush or beauty blender, and is very comfortable on the skin. The lightest shade is a perfect match for my skin, which doesn't happen often! The only problem I have is that if I wear it more than 10 or so hours, it starts to break up. Also, be sure to shake it VERY WELL before use - it will come out separated if you don't shake it enough. :-)

              I wanted to switch from Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer but didn't like the heaviness of foundations. This was recommended I LOVE it. Not heavy at all, but gives great coverage.

                    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.
