    I was looking for a foundation that doesn't get oil and minimizes pores. It will say, my pores look amazing when I use this foundation. However, my face still gets greasy within about 2 hours.

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I have large pores and an oily T-zone. I do not have acme or problem skin as far as breakouts are concerned. I was looking for a medium coverage foundation for my skin type. This foundation did settle into my pores and magnified my imperfections! It did not last on my skin for more than 2 hours before it became a slick zone. I did use several high end primers before each application ( Hour glass veil & Becca). Poor results on 2 different trys.

        The first day I started wearing this, I got a couple compliments at work about how nice I looked (and it wasn't b/c of my outfit since it was just an average outfit that I had worn several times before). But this product didn't make the pores on my nose look any smaller, so that was disappointing since that was one of the reasons why I purchased it.

          I love that this product covers up any blemishes and redness on my face. It is light weight, so it feels like I am not wearing makeup! Also, it blends well with my skin color. Definitely worth the cost of it!

          It's ok but even if you have slightly oily skin DO NOT buy this product. It smudges easily & does not last all day. Not a good buy! I personally dislike the shine on the face & this only makes it worse!

            I am always on the lookout for a great foundation. Of course this time of year in Maine it is still on the cold side so my skin is drier and I need a moist but not greasy finish.
            I also swear by Amazing Cosmetics concealer which covers incredibly well and stays put.
            I want medium to full coverage without looking cakey or dried up. I have been using a brush to apply which gives me a smoother finish than my fingers. This foundation fulfills all my needs!
            Beautiful finish covers well and looks lightly dewy just the way I like it :)

              This foundation is fantastic. It makes my pores disappear doesn't settle into lines and doesn't make my skin feel dry. I usually use Bobby Brown or Laura Mercier, but this is my new go to this looks much better.

              • Q:

                If I'm light skin toned and have red tones would the #2 shade work for me? I need a foundation that's for red tones not yellow and I'm light skinned. I took the color match on lorac website that suggests the #2.

                  A:

                  We recommend trying POREfection® Foundation in PR2 (LIGHT) or PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE). Both shades are very similar and for a fair complexion. PR2 (LIGHT) tends to have slightly more of a yellow undertone than PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE), but that could help balance the redness and neutralize your skin. PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE) has more pink/red undertones. We recommend visiting your local Ulta to meet with a beauty consultant who can help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.

              • Q:

                Hello

                I have a question about the color range. I am an African-American woman with yellow and warm undertones. Plus, I am matched to the MAC cosmetics as the "NC 50" which is the darkest shade for their foundation line. Thus, I am wondering if I match shade 9 or 10 for this particular foundation but I am quite confused though.

                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:
