      This is the best foundation I have used in a very long time. It matches well, goes on well and looks very natural. Last night was the first time in years I had a compliment on how well I look. My daughter recommended it to me because she jas been wearing it and loves it as well.

      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!

              I have acne prone, oily skin. I went to ulta looking for a non comedogenic foundation and was recommended by a worker to try this one! I so wanted to love it and tried it with different primers, sponges, brushes, powders, etc. and nothing worked. It slid right off my face, made my face look extremely greasy, and made my acne marks look terrible.

                I used this with a regular foundation brush & over a glow mineral primer for a daytime wedding. It did not settle in my lines and it look natural yet covered what I needed. Can't wait to try Lorac's primer :)

                Used this with my normal damp sponge to apply. The coverage was thin and wasn't greater if I added more. Even with using a primer and a setting powder, it wasn't covering well after 5 hours wear.

                  The foundation formal is runny and the base application is barely noticeable. I have skin that is not too dry yet not too oily. After application, it was clear this product was not bending well and simply "sitting" on my skin/pores. Plan on returning immediately.

                  Note: I do appreciate a thicker formula, such as Makeup Forever HD Foundation.

                  I had been using Loreal Infallible Foundation which offered me more covrerage...
