    I bought this product yesterday and I love it! I have very oily skin and it doesn't make my face feel oily. I swore my smashbox primer but this is my new favorite. Everyone has different skin but this worked for me!

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I bought this primer yesterday and used it for the first time this morning, and I am very impressed! When I put it on, I thought I didn't get any on my brush or something because I couldn't feel it. This stuff is so lightweight, you can't tell you're wearing it. This can become dangerous though, because it kind of caused me to get more product on my brush than I probably needed. So after I (supposedly) got an even layer on my face, I put the rest of my makeup on like normal, and it was perfectly fine. I only use a translucent powder, no liquid or creme foundation. Usually my face becomes an oil-slick by after a few hours, but it has stayed perfect all day, and it has been HOT and humid in this Texas weather. That's saying something! Also, I feel it really is a good value for the huge bottle you get. Win win!

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

        I think finding the right primer is just as hard as finding the right foundation, maybe its just me, but i have a VERY oily T-zone. and this just isnt working for me. My cheeks also get a bit on the shiny side as well, I dont want to buy super expensive but im not buying the icky cheap gunk either. Oh the pains of finding a good primer. But i love the way my makeup goes on and looks for about the first 3-4 hours. Then its a constant touch up battle. lol But,i guess still an okay product. But maybe not best for the very OILY! Ack!

        I used this product once and my face felt itchy all day and it made me break out. I guess it provided somewhat of a matte finish, but who cares if you end up with a break out?!

        Lorac: Please bring back the Aquaprime primer!! Neither this or the primer for sensitive skin even comes close to Aquaprime!

        **Thank you so much, Ulta, for accepting my return!!

              Great protection for skin. Feels like silk going on and feelso clean, not caked on like a lot of primers. Very smooth look, covers pores and wrinkles well.

                Having tried dozens of primers and mattifiers for my somewhat oily T-zone, I was so hopeful that this one would be "the one." Sadly - no deal. Was oily by lunchtime and needed to blot the shininess away. Returning this and will keep searching. Sigh.
