    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.

      I have vitaligo; a skin condition where I have no pigment on my face in certain spots. This product evens out that area where you cannot tell the different pigments. It goes on evenly and doesn't feel greasy. Happy to have found it!!

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

          I love my Lorad Pro eyeshadow palette and was looking forward to trying their foundation. I wanted something that would minimize shine and last throughout the day. This foundation is very "runny" and I found it difficult to apply smoothly. Within a few hours my face was incredibly shiny and the make-up was wearing off. I kept using it for a week to see if it got any better and I noticed I was breaking out all over. Sorry Lorac but this product is incredibly disappointing. Returning it today!

            Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

            I'm not one to write reviews but I have been searching endlessly for a foundation that was this amazing. I have lots of freckles and I like to be able to cover certain areas. I also have dry skin (espeically in the winter) and this foundation completely nourishes my skin. I can definitely tell it as A & E oil in it because my skin just glows and is helping my skin look better without wearing any makeup which is definitely a plus! I can't say enough good things. I'm normally a MAC user because it stays all day and this foundation lasts me all day. It's nice to be able to leave the house in the morning and still make it to happy hour without needing to touch up (because who has time to go home or remember to carry makeup with them?) Ok, sorry this is the longest review ever but if you have dry, dull skin this foundation is the best thing you'll ever buy.

                    Was excited to try out this product but I was very disappointed. Too greasy. Does not stay on long at all. Oil shines through. Irritated my face very badly after one use. I haven't tried such a bad product like this in so long. Save your money

                    • 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 :)!
