Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

This was introduced to me by a friend a few years ago n I literally ell in love with it the first time i tried... Its been my HG since thn... I tried many new foundations like laura mercier, tarte rainforest of the sea, makeupforever, UD but always return them coz nothing compares to this one. It gives a nice glow, its not cakey at all n my skin can breathe with it. Its just beautiful n the best out there.

                      I have very fine dark veins on the lower part of my face-great right? I typically use a concealer and foundation ontop, but looking to just use one maybe. Will this cover those tiny dark veins you think?

                        A:

                        Natural Performance Foundation comes in a smaller variety of shades. We would recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation to achieve the same benefits you are getting from both products mentioned. Sheer POREFection is a light weight, oil, fragrance, and paraben free foundation that provides light to medium coverage with a natural finish. For a deeper, warm foundation shade, we recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS8 (Tan); however, for the best shade match to your complexion, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty to have an artist help match your foundation shade in person.

                    • Q:

                      I have patches of dry skin on my chin and forehead and most foundations separate along those areas and make my skin look even more dry. Is thing foundation for more oily/ normal skin or would this work with a certain brush. If so what brush is recommended.

                        A:

                        LORAC Natural Performance Foundation is a light weight foundation formula that should not separate around or into dry spots. For the best application, we recommend trying "I'm So Sensitive" Soothing Face Primer which is a moisturizing, water-based face primer that will help hydrate your skin prior to applying your foundation. All LORAC's Foundations can be applied using a foundation brush, sponge or fingertips.

                        LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals and we are not owned by another company.

                        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.
