This should be a drugstore foundation

By Madalyn Claudia

from Wisconsin

Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

I'm a big fan of the pro palette and the Lorac eye primers, even the fiberized mascara so don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to just hate on a brand here. But this foundation is so horrible, it's pure liquid, it's funny, it creases and settles into dry spots and fine lines, no coverage, lasts on your face for about four hours and literally ZERO time before it oxidizes on my nose, just horrible.

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    I had been using another brand for a while, decent coverage but over time seemed to dry my skin out. After reading reviews and watching videos on you tube I thought I would try Lorac. It is amazing for my skin and after the short worry of breaking out( and it did not break me out!) I am now a new customer of Lorac. Worth the money

    Okay Foundation

    By Ciera

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    I don't hate this foundation, but it is definitely not for me. It gives a nice medium coverage, but it doesn't seem to cover my acne scars very well, and it clings on to dry patches like none other. While it does give a nice finish, it wears off within about 4 hours and I feel like I'm not wearing anything

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

        I have a medium complexion with combination skin. My T-zone is extremely oily and and my dry areas are very dry. This foundation is a medium to Full Coverage product and it was a little to heavy for my personal preference. I found that it caked up around my mouth and around my nose and settled in my creases around my eyes. I really had high hopes for this brand but it just didn't work out for me. I had to return it.

                  Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

                  This is my new holy grail foundation. I have a hard time finding a match. I am very fair. I have been matched to MAC NW20 but this PR1 matches me better. I have a hard time telling my undertone. Looking at my bare face I over all look more yellow but have alot of redness around my nose and chin. Neutral? idk but this is perfect and blended to my neck was undetectable.

                  After I apply my primer I like to use one pump on my finger tips and spread it on my face. Then I use a sigma F80 to blend it out. Flawless. I use one pump and it gives a pretty full coverage. I use the concealer under my eyes and for redness around my nose and chin and its perfect!

                  I love this so much that I got crazy and eventually bought the primer, concealer, and powder. Finish with L'Oreal setting spray.

                  The only con is that it really has a sun screen scent. Its not a bad smell but its strong at first but fades quickly. I just appreciate the fact that it has SPF so I dont mind.

                  I am a nurse and this combinatin of products lasts me entire 12 hour night shifts in the ICU.

                      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.

                      You can try using the online Complexion POREfection® shade guide to help match which shade you think matches your complexion the best. However, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty location to have a pro artist help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.

                      A:

                      We recommend trying POREfection® Foundation in PR2 (LIGHT) or PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE). Both shades are very similar and for a fair complexion. PR2 (LIGHT) tends to have slightly more of a yellow undertone than PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE), but that could help balance the redness and neutralize your skin. PR3 (LIGHT BEIGE) has more pink/red undertones. We recommend visiting your local Ulta to meet with a beauty consultant who can help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.
