Fine-uh-ly!

By Janna

Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

After what seems like years of struggling to find a primer that just keeps my foundation stuck to my face all day, I've found it! I don't care if it's mattifying, I just wanted something that kept my makeup on, and this does it. I highly recommend if you have oily skin or an oily t-zone. I am thrilled with this purchase. Even my blush and bronzer stay on throughout the day now.

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    I received this product as a sample when I made another Ulta order, I was pretty excited when I saw it because 1.) its a matte product, and I really struggle with oily skin, especially in Florida humidity, and 2.) I've been wanting to try out a primer for awhile but with so many products and brands I really just could not decided what to try. I've been using this for about a week now and it is amazing! It keeps my face matte all day long, no matter how much I sweat or how humid it is outside. It blurs out some of my pores, but it doesn't do much for the larger pores on my cheeks, thats the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars. It makes a great base for my foundation, I'm currently using bare minerals, and it makes applying that so much easier, and I believe it is improving the overall texture of my skin, though I'll have to keep using it a bit longer to be sure. So overall I really enjoyed this primer, and I will be purchasing a full size as soon as I'm done writing this review.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I started using this primer a couple days ago, and I have to admit... It's pretty good stuff. I didn't realize it had the mattifying finish until I put it on my face, which was a happy surprise. Loved it and would recommend it to all acne prone skin.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      This was recommended by one of the sales persons in Ulta when they were out of the Smashbox I wanted. It's very...meh. It goes on smooth and makes a great canvas for makeup but the mattifying effects don't last very long and it does NOTHING for pores.

            This really works. I have oily skin and this keeps me matte pretty much all day and keeps my makeup on. You only have to use a little bit so this lasts a long time. Worth the money. My only complaint is it does really cover my large pores around my cheeks that well.

                Don't buy this product if you have dry skin or dry patches. Very mattifying& long lasting.

                      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

                      I use this primer under my concealer and sometimes foundation.
                      It makes everything look so flawless and matte.
                      I first tried this as a sample and fell in love.
                      It look a while for me to be able to bring myself to pay the price but it's worth it.
                      I have been using it for a few weeks and noticed my pores overall look so much better!
                      A little goes a long way!!!
