    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    I decided to try this primer because I love Lorac's contour kit... I was definitely disappointed. I found it was too thick for my combination skin and it made my foundation look cakey. It also clung to my dry patches and didn't control my oil at all. The only good thing I have to say is that it made my skin feel soft upon application.

        It's a bit pricey but worth it. I like to try different products. Im a bit of a product junkie. I liked this primer aiot. Very comparable to the Urban Decay primer. Applied smoothly and did not feel heavy at all.

          This is by far my favorite makeup primer. It goes on smoothly and stays there. It really is mattifying unlike other matte primers. It's also great for my sensitive, dry and sometimes acne prone skin. It keeps it clear and hydrated all while keeping my makeup in place. I love this!!

                            LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals.

                            POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer is intended help achieve a poreless-looking, smooth, matte finish and long-lasting makeup wear. It is suitable for all skin types and should not cause breakouts; however, if you are looking to prevent breakouts, we do suggest using an alternative method in addition to the use of POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer.
