    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    I received this as one of the samples included in a recent purchase. never using primer before, the first thing i realized was that a little goes a long way (after i used the whole sample in one go, silly me). the second thing i realized was how super silky smooth it was. i just wanted to apply it everywhere! when i applied it to my face it was as if there were nothing there (other than the excess primer, oops!) super lightweight, made my face feel as smooth as porcelain. So far I've been wearing it for 6 hours and my make-up looks as fresh as it did when I applied it. If it wasn't for the price i would definitely give this product 5 stars!

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      i got the sample of this primer and i tried out today. it works amazing. I have huge pores and this covered them up pretty good without it feeling greasy or heavy. Ive tried a lot of pore filling primers and they didnt really work. ive also tried Benifits the porefessional because of of all the hype and great reviews. it worked but it made me feel greasy and gross after awhile. This one doesnt. i will be buying the full size on sunday. ????

        As I have gotten older my pores are bigger and this really minimizes them and makes my skin look smooth.

            I received this primer as a sample and I fell in love. This primer is wonderful. I use it under foundation and alone. It glides on smoothly and is just fantastic. I just purchased the full size with the rest of the POREfection line. So happy! Lorac is awesome!!

                  I've tried all sorts of primers.. Even tried the MUFE mattifying primer which is a tad bit more expensive but this has to be THEEEE BEST primer i've ever tried. Not once do i have to retouch and I'm usually out and about for 12 hours or so a day... Definitely kept me matte and my makeup looking fresh all day... I got the sample at first and then i bought the full size one coz i don't think i can ever live without it!! Definitely a must-have! Now i don't know what to do with the other primers i have coz i have no use for the already! lol

                  Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

                  I purchased this primer and the Becca Matte primer. The Lorac primer has a silicone base so it tends to feel greasy on the skin. I have oily skin in the summer and combination skin in the winter so I'll probably use this more in the winter months. As for the benefits, it goes on smoothly and fills in pores. If you're looking to get a few hours of semi-matte wear from your foundation then this product will do the job. If you don't want to look greasy by the end of the day, then go for the Becca alternative.

                      POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and primes the face for long-lasting makeup wear. However, this primer is not intended to be used as a cover-up.
