          Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

          I love the way this product makes my skin look. I can apply a light layer with a spong for a natural look or apply it with a brush and build it if I need more coverage. My skin goes back and forth between oily and dry and I love that I can use this no matter what my skin is like that day.

              Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

              I absolutely love how light this foundation is. Is blends out like a dream, but still has decent coverage. OBVIOUSLY, since it has "Sheer" in it's name, if you are a full coverage/heavy foundation type gal - this is not for you. So many negative comments on here say that they prefer heavier foundations - it literally says "sheer".

              You can barely tell I'm wearing makeup, but this really evens out my skin tone. The packaging is A++, air tight pump that brings up the product so you will get every last drop.

              Lorac does not get enough credit.

                    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.

                            LORAC does not do comedogenic testing, however, all LORAC products have been formulated for sensitive skin. We hope this helps and please let us know if we can further assist you!

                            LORAC recommends trying Sheer POREfection® Foundation in PS4. However, it is best to visit your local Ulta Beauty store to have an artist help match the perfect shade for your complexion.
