      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      Tried this product on my hand at the store and liked it, but when I used it on my face, the areas around my nose and chin were almost completely without makeup after a couple of hours. Not bad if you like light coverage but wouldn't recommend for a night out

                I just don't think it's worth what they charge. I can find better drug store foundation that makes me looks flawless with full coverage. The liquid felt like water. Runny

                    Worst product I've ever purchased from Ulta. I normally use philosophy foundation, but wanted to try something new. The formula is horrible, it's streaky and doesn't stay on, and it causes break outs.

                      As many women, I have at least three different brands and shades of foundation. They are either too light or too dark and don't give me the coverage I need. This product fits the bill and I will continue to use again and again. Looking forward to testing out the concealer for under the eyes.

                              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.

                              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 am currently using benefit hello flawless foundation in all the rage beige. What color is similar?
                              Does this product give a dewy finish?

                              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 :)!

                                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:
