      Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

      There is some very nice coloration and the range from warm to cool is wide. The foundations did stay all day and was very natural looking, but I think that's because I have very dry skin.

            If you have oily skin, keep looking. I read some reviews and was hoping that I could pull off a natural looking foundation that didn't slide off my face by the end of the day. This was not it. The color match was off, but it was very easy to apply and blend. It felt a little greasy until I set it (red flag #1). It looked great for a few hours and then it started getting patchy and clinging to my dry spots around my blemishes. Sank into pores even with a pore filling primer. Transferred like crazy. Felt gross and I couldn't wait to take it off when I got home. Definitely not for me. Maybe someone with mature or dry skin would like this better.

                We would recommend trying Natural Performance Foundation in NP5 (Warm Medium). This is a medium toned foundation shade with warm undertones.

                We recommend testing the fairest shade, NP-1, at your nearest Ulta Beauty store:

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

                Natural Performance Foundation is an especially ideal choice for those with sensitive skin, since it is paraben-free, fragrance-free, and formulated with soothing natural ingredients. Enjoy!

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Natural Performance Foundation provides a natural finish with medium to full coverage that will last you throughout the day. Though this foundation is long-lasting, LORAC does not claim it as waterproof.
                We recommend also trying POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer for a silky, smooth poreless, matte-look and POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder to set your foundation and for touch-ups throughout the day to keep a flawless, smooth, matte finish.

                A:

                Natural Performance Foundation provides medium to full coverage that could help even out your complexion. To even out a pink skin tone, we recommend using a foundation with more of a yellow undertone. Many Natural Performance Foundation shades offer a yellow undertone. We recommend visiting your local Ulta Beauty to have a pro artist shade match the perfect foundation shade for your complexion.

              I currently use Lorac Breakthrough Performance Foundation SMS 6. Which is the closest color match in this product? Also, does it work the same as the Breakthrough Performance foundation?
              Asked on 9/6/2015 by Yvonne from Puyallup, WA

              1 answer

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Natural Performance Foundation and Breakthrough Performance Foundation both offer quality foundation formulas which are good for sensitive skin, however, they are different from each other. Breakthrough Performance Foundation provided a sheer/medium coverage that could also build to a high coverage finish, and it contained SPF14. Natural Performance provides more of a medium to full coverage, but it does not contain an SPF. If you are looking for a foundation with an SPF, we would recommend trying POREfection® Foundation which is a medium to full coverage foundation that contains SPF20.

                The closest shade matches to Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS6 (TAN) are Natural Performance Foundation in NP7 (TAN) or POREfection® Foundation in PR9 (TAN), however SMS6 did have slightly more of a golden undertone than each of these shades. We recommend visiting your local Ulta store to have a pro artist help find the perfect shade to match your complexion.
