            I loved this foundation so much it made my skin look so dewy and flawless. Got so many compliments on my makeup when wearing it and I have very bad skin so that goes to show how good of a foundation it is. Only con is that it doesn't stay on and can get extremely oily but putting a mattifying primer underneath should do the trick!

                  My favorite of the higher end foundations. Perfect shade, dispenser always works as designed. I've never really been loyal to one brand...until this. I've been using Lorac for over two years straight. This foundation delivers.

                    I like using this with the Lorac face primer. It goes on smooth, but a little goes a long way so don't put on too much. I put a little dab on the back of my hand and then use my foundation brush to dab onto my face and then blend in really well. This is usually enough for my whole face. The finish is a matte finish and helps my "mature" skin look really nice!

                    • 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.

                        A:

                        POREfection® Foundation in PR1 (FAIR) does 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.
