Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

Easy to use. I apply a mattifying lotion (Murad) because my skin gets dry, then apply this Lorac primer over top. Next comes my concealer and powder foundation. I have noticed throughout the day that my face has more of the mattified look. However the primer does not last ALL day. By late afternoon, I definitely could use a touch up to my makeup. In regards to the pore coverage, I still notice my pores around the nose and cheek area. Overall it's a good product for the price and I do notice the mattifying affects that help with oily skin, but not so much the pore coverage.

Great product but not great for pores

By Disney Rose

Pros

  • Matte Finish

Cons

  • Doesn't Last Long
  • Does Not Reduce Pores

Best Uses

  • Reduces Shine

Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

It's a great product that helps reduce shine on my oily T-zone but will last only about three hours for me. I love the smooth soft skin it gives me though. My makeup glides on smoothly. I really needed something to reduce the appearance of my pores though.

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    I'm 43 and have very oily, acne-prone skin. I have tried many primers and all of them have been a bust. Every single one. I received a sample of this with my last order and it said "matte", so I thought I'd give it a try as I wear mineral/powder foundations and a little something under them helps them apply better. I usually use Philosphy Clear or Murad oil-free lotions for acne prone skin.

    The product applied smoothly and had a silky feel to it and my Pur Minerals powder foundation applied smoothly. However, it didn't stand up over time. Within an hour, I noticed my skin was oilier than usual. Within 2 hours, I was blotting my face. After 4 hours, I saw no benefit to wearing the primer as I was continually blotting my face and all my powder foundation was coming off on the blotting papers. The next day, I woke up to several painful cystic acne bumps forming. No thanks.

    If you have dry to normal skin, this product should work well for you. If your skin is combination, oily or acne-prone, avoid this at all costs unless you enjoy dealing with breakouts and love blotting your face.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      This project is a must! It keeps my face from becoming oily throughout the day and a tube lasts a long time! I've used other primers in the past, both prestige and drugstote brands, and this one I have found to be the best!

            I received a sample and tried it this morning. I loved how it felt going on but, oddly enough, I had to use twice as much concealer to get my desired coverage and my concealer had disappeared by lunch time. I even used finishing powder after the first application but it really didn't seem to help. I guess if you want to try their four step system, maybe you'll have better results. But I expect a primer (especially such an expensive one) to actually prime and hold.
