    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    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

      I use this everyday as my foundation. I layer it for a fuller coverage. Love it and doesn't make my acne worse while wearing it but gives me a great amount of coverage to hide those blemishes

        I Use this product with a damp beauty Blender. Goes on smooth and easily bendable. This does dry matte which I love. however after 3-4 hours of Working (running around all day chasing patients) I am very Shiny and oily, I have to powder with this throughout the day which I don't have time for. Love the coverage though but does wear off due to my oily skin. May stay on better with dry to normal skin. But over all I love the shades and coverage.

          Matched my skin tone perfectly, and I NEVER find a perfect match for my skin. It also gave me a good full-coverage look. BUT..... This is NOT for people with oily or acne-prone skin. After 3 days of using it, my pores were extremely clogged and started having horrific breakouts. (Still recovering 3 weeks later)Also, my face was greasy (not just shiny-greasy) after about an hour. Yuck...

                      POREfection® Foundation has great slip and is user friendly no matter what tool you use to apply. You can apply with your fingers, a sponge or a brush – whichever suits your personal preference best!

                  • 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:
