            Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

            I wanted this foundation to be 5-stars for me the way it seems to be for most other folks! I've given it 2 weeks but just can't hang anymore; regardless of moisturizer, primer, setting spray, powder combinations used, the foundation just didn't hold up with a great finish for me. My skin is neither consistently oily nor dry but this foundation seemed to cause excess oil around my t-zone and dryness around my chin & mouth. It's tough to rely on reviews for foundation especially, because everyone's skin is so different. The packaging is really great - the dispenser is a pump (1 pump is perfect for med-full coverage on whole face) and the bottle is translucent with the floor of the bottle moving up as you utilize the product; this allows you to not only use every last drop but also see an ongoing status of your amt. of foundation left. This foundation is packed with pigment and also has SPF which is a major bonus to me. There is a light scent, a sunscreen essence, which fades quickly and is not overwhelming.

            All things considered, I would strongly recommend that anyone interested in this product tries it; the pros mentioned above outweigh the risk of a poor formula match (particularly if you have a sample & can move fwd w/ the full size afterward). If this formula had been a match for my skin, this could've easily become an HG product for me, so I hope you all have better luck with this baby than I did!

              I've used so many foundation and by far this works the best. It apply smoothly and evenly. It's lightweight and long last wearing. It works well with oily skin and it looks very natural with the desire coverage needed.

              If you're looking for a full coverage foundation, with a matte finish that stays on all day this is NOT it. It does not smooth out the skin like one would assume considering it's called POREfection, instead it settles into your pores and is incredibly greasy. I feel this foundation would only benefit those who already have flawless skin and are just looking for a light dewy look.

                  I use a face primer first which is by Physicians Formula with Arian oil with coconut water. I'm not really sure if I'm sold on it yet. I read about in the Allure magazine so I thought I'd give it a try. I just started using it so we shall see. Then I apply my foundation with a Bare Minerals brush which I really like but I'd like to get another one for foundation. But I do really love the product..I'm sold on it and will buy it again

                          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!

                          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.
