          This is the second time I have gotten this and not the last. The color goes on my skin evenly and doesn't give me a caked on look. A lot of people are shocked when they find out I am wearing foundation because it looks natural. If you want a more full coverage look then you just apply more and it still will not look cakey. This is seriously the best foundation hands down

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

          I purchased this product to replace my everyday foundation. I have worn MAC Studio Fix Fluid for years and, although I love the formula, I could never get a good match for my skin. I bounced back and forth between two shades for years and eventually settled somewhere in the middle. I am not a fan of mixing, so I went in search of a new brand. I live in South Carolina and we have extremely warm summers. In addition, I have naturally oily skin. This product provided decent coverage in late winter/early spring, but as soon as things started to heat up, I noticed the product slipping. I use it along with my favorite primer, as well as a finishing powder. No matter what I've tried, I have not been able to make this product last through an entire work day. My work day consists of 8 hours in an air conditioned building, with the occasional 30 minutes or so spent out and about around lunch time. This product is also a definite no for all date nights during the summer! The color is great. It looks phenomenal on my skin, but it does not provide the full coverage that I like and the product does not last more than a couple of hours.

                        POREfection® Foundation in PR1 (FAIR) and PR2 (LIGHT) do have yellow undertones and is for fair skin tones, so it sounds like it would match your complexion well. We recommend visiting your local Ulta to meet with a beauty consultant who can help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.

                    • Q:

                      I want to use a foundation that will help minimize the appearance of pores and even out my skin tone but not one that is too heavy. Would POREfection Foundation or POREfection Sheer Foundation be better for this? I don't really have many blemishes or anything that needs to be covered, just some freckles and a few old acne scars, but my main concern is my large pores.

                      I currently use Lorac Natural Performance NP 3. What color would match that in the POREfection line?

                        Hi Amy,

                        LORAC would recommend you the Sheer POREfection Foundation. It is light in coverage and feel however it is buildable if you are desiring more coverage in certain areas. If NP3 was a good match for you than the shade PS2 in the Sheer POREfection would be a good match. PS2 has a bit more of a yellow undertone than NP3. We hope this helps!

                        A:

                        Unfortunately we are not familiar with other brands shades. However we would recommend the shade PR3 based off of the description. It is best to visit your local Ulta Beauty store to have an artist help match the perfect shade for your complexion. We have not experienced any complaints about oxidation. We recommend setting your foundation with a light brushing of the LORAC Baked Perfecting Powder in PF2 to avoid any slip or color change throughout the day.
