        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I love this foundation. I have pictures while I was wearing it and my face literally looks airbrushed and I have acne! I have purchased 2 bottles but the second one I got a darker one for the summer, but I didn't get much of a tan so I stopped using it, but will be finishing it off when it does match. There are so many other foundations out there, I feel like I need to try a bunch to really have one as my favorite. But so far I like it more than Bareminerals, but not as much as I like Tarte. I am going to try Kat Von D next for the coverage because I heard thats great!

          I wss told by a sales associate that this product was full coverage and if it was a matte finish. The associate told me yes and even tested it on a small area on my face. It felt fine in the store and of course I knew that I would not get the full effect until I tried it myself for a full day. The next day when I tried the product I noticed serious problems. The foundation was not full coverage or matte finish. I was really irritated at the associate because those were my two main concerns in which I made specifically clear in the store.

          I really wanted to like this product. I ran out of Exuviance SkinCaring Foundation so decided to try this. It's is easy to apply but it doesn't stay on. I am not normally oily but this made me greasy and shiny. It transferred onto anything that came in contact with my face. It does not minimize pores as it claims. If anything it enhances them. No matter how you blend it liked to gather around lip and chin.

                  • Q:

                    I'm fair skinned with slight pink undertones. I have normal skin with a slightly oily t-zone as the day goes on, especially if the weather is warm. I really would like to try this product since I heard many good things & as I'm getting older (I'm 39) my pores are getting a little larger & I have very little fine lines. When I purchased the Urban Decay Naked foundation, it was recommended that I get shade 2.0 which surprisingly matches me well considering the yellow undertones. Which shade would u suggest in this foundation? Thank u :)!

                      A:

                      We suggest testing both PR2 - Light (this shade is most similar to UD 2.0) and PR1 - Fair (which is lighter and slightly more pink-toned) at your nearest ULTA store to determine your best match:

                      Yes, POREfection Foundation is formulated for all skin types including dry skin! If you experience flaky dryness, we recommend exfoliating once to twice weekly, moisturizing, and priming with POREfection Mattifying Face Primer prior to foundation application to ensure the smoothest finish.

                      If pore size is a concern, we recommend this foundation due to its pore minimizing benefits. It provides buildable medium-to-full coverage to effectively conceal skin redness/broken capillaries. We suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store to test the shades and find your match:
