Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

I absolutely love this foundation. It's super easy to apply & blends beautifully, especially if you use a Beauty Blender. And one pump is enough for the entire face! It really makes my face look brighter & more awake in the mornings too.

At first I felt like it didn't stay on very well throughout the day but that was easily fixed with some makeup setting spray.

      LOVE this foundation! I used Tarte for about the past year & a half then they changed the colors & my face started breaking out. I have very large pores & Lorac POREfection covers them wonderfully! This isnt as long lasting as I would like there for I do have to do touch ups throughout the day but I love this foundation

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

      This doesnt last forever, it refuses to erase it. I use the pore less primer by Lorac, followed by the CC Lorac cream ( both of which are amazing!) And finish with this Pore less foundation. The foundation finishes the look by making my skin look poreless as promised, it is light, doesn't have a strong smell, and makes me look great as long as no one hugs me, my face isn't touched, and I don't get warm or sweat. If one of these things happens however the foundation comes sloughing off my face resulting in embarassment . The CC cream alone honestly covers almost as well and that at least don't come off; even in those hot/sweaty/hug situations. If someone has a suggestion for how to make this stay on I'm open to it because in all other situations it makes me love my acne prone skin because you can't see my acne and it doesn't make me break out. But if it can't stay on then I don't see myself buying it again.

                Comments about Lorac POREfection Foundation:

                I have tried at least 10 foundations recently trying to find one that improves appearance of aging skin and pores. I am 46 with very fair skin and going through beginnings of menopause. This is the best that I have tried. It covers very well and I use Merle Norman powder foundation lightly on top for full coverage. It stays on through the S.C. heat and actually looks better after a few hours. Hope that they continue to make this foundation.

                    A:

                    If pore size is a concern, we recommend this foundation due to its pore minimizing benefits. It provides buildable medium-to-full coverage to effectively conceal skin redness/broken capillaries. We suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store to test the shades and find your match:

                    We recommend shade PR2 - Light (Item #:2269595) for light skin tones. This foundation provides buildable medium-to-full coverage (slightly more coverage than Breakthrough Performance Foundation, but still a very natural finish). It features more enhanced anti-aging benefits plus greater sun protection than Breakthrough Performance, and it is oil-, paraben-, and fragrance-free.
