    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:

                  Yes, POREfection Foundation is formulated for all skin types including dry skin! If you experience flaky dryness, we recommend exfoliating once to twice weekly, moisturizing, and priming with POREfection Mattifying Face Primer prior to foundation application to ensure the smoothest finish.
