    Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

    As many women, I have at least three different brands and shades of foundation. They are either too light or too dark and don't give me the coverage I need. This product fits the bill and I will continue to use again and again. Looking forward to testing out the concealer for under the eyes.

            I loved how easily this went on- with my fingertips and even better with a foundation brush. However, within an hour my skin was so greasy & the product never dried. Needs to be paired with the right powder for sure- not to be used alone- unless maybe you have crazy dry skin. Great coverage, pores looked great & actually matched my skin tone great.

                • Q:

                  If I'm light skin toned and have red tones would the #2 shade work for me? I need a foundation that's for red tones not yellow and I'm light skinned. I took the color match on lorac website that suggests the #2.

                    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.

                    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.

                  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 :)!

                    A:

                    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:
                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                    This foundation is oil-free and formulated for all skin types including combination normal/oily skin. It is formulated with antioxidants and SPF to help keep skin in beautiful shape!
