      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      Okay, as my title says, I love this foundation. I have very sensitive, acneic skin and rarely change products because I'm so hesitant do to often breakouts from products. The former foundation I was using was the best of the best therefore very expensive so I was on the hunt for something just as effective but not $60 every 3 months.. This product is the one for me. It has different vitamins to help sooth my sensitive akin and salycilic acid to help heal my acne with anti-inflamatory ingredient's. This product is buildable if you want more coverage or just one coat for a day time look. It covers my blemishes perfectly without cakey feel or look and lasts me all day. Definitely going back to try the face primer and bronzer.

            I have combo skin with an oily t-zone, at first this foundation looked great however only after two hours of wear it started breaking down around my nose first then on my chin. I primed my skin and also set the foundation with a powder and still the foundation wore off after only a couple of hours. I just don't think this foundation is for people with oily skin. I tried many different ways to apply this foundation, (different primers and different setting powders) and still it broke down around my t-zone. Im just going to stick to my two holy grail foundations, EL Double wear and CG 3-1 stay fabulous. I guess if you don't have a problem with oily skin i would recommend this foundation.

              I chaged my smashbox full cover foundation to try the Lorac full coverage, I like it but doesnt meet my expectations. The foundation doesn stay longer, but its easy to apply and cover imperfections very well. Maybe if I use face powder over the foundation stays longer.

                I love how flawless this foundation is. Isn't greasy but leaves your skin with a slight dewy look. With a good primer, it keeps my face less-oily looking than other foundations.

                        Yes, POREfection Foundation is formulated for all skin types including dry skin! If you experience flaky dryness, we recommend exfoliating once to twice weekly, moisturizing, and priming with POREfection Mattifying Face Primer prior to foundation application to ensure the smoothest finish.

                        If pore size is a concern, we recommend this foundation due to its pore minimizing benefits. It provides buildable medium-to-full coverage to effectively conceal skin redness/broken capillaries. We suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store to test the shades and find your match:

                        We recommend shade PR2 - Light (Item #:2269595) for light skin tones. This foundation provides buildable medium-to-full coverage (slightly more coverage than Breakthrough Performance Foundation, but still a very natural finish). It features more enhanced anti-aging benefits plus greater sun protection than Breakthrough Performance, and it is oil-, paraben-, and fragrance-free.
