    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    I have been using this for about a year. I switched over from the Bobbie Brown line. I love this. It matches my skin perfectly, plus it makes my skin feel great, not heavy or even like I'm wearing makeup.

    wouldn't buy again.

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    Looks good for a while, but even if I use a primer and set this, I turn into an oily mess and it slides off my face in just hours. I donate even have oily skin, this is the only foundation that does that to me. & on top of that it breaks me out. I don't recommend.

      Really great, full coverage, not heavy, requires use of foundation brush. Pricey,sometimes I have to mix it with some moisturizer, however its worth the price for flawless coverage, covers age spots well.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      I don't usually wear foundation or anything on my face besides eyeliner or mascara but since I'm getting paler my skin looks very white so I decided to try something. It evens out my skin tone and tends to stay on for a long time and makes my skin look very clean and good coverage.

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I have oily/sensitive skin and at first I thought this stuff was great.. However, after using a couple of times my skin started getting little tiny white bumps. It seemed to really clog my pores up. It also didn't seem to last all day, even with a setting spray. It also made my forehead look dry and flaky which has never been a problem for me.. Overall I was disappointed

          I have normal/combination skin. This foundation was runny and greasy. I actually ended up returning it. I tend to like a more matte look so this just wasn't for me.

              • 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.

              • Q:

                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:
