    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    Been using this foundation for about 3 years, it's far and away the best match for my super-fair skin with pink undertones, I had to look a long time to find a color that was a good fit. Thanks Lorac!

        Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

        I have to blend this foundation with moisturizer.. it is very heavy and thick. Hard to apply. It gives a lot of matte coverage and lasts but it also can look mask like- not very natural. I am using it all up then switching back to what I was using before.

          This foundation is easy to apply and stays on, even in a desert climate. I apply it with my realTechniques expert face brush, and it is very easy to blend + add extra coverage on blemishes. I love that I can apply this from light to completely full coverage.

            Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

            I alway dismissed higher end products due to the price, thinking that "they really can't be worth THAT...". Well, my mind is changed, thanks to this. Since trading out the $10 drug store foundation I have use since I was 16 for this, my skin had improved drastically. Its not perfect by any means, but since using this I haven't had to endure any over night breakouts and my general skin tone has evened out quite a bit.

            When I initially purchased this my skin was not in great shape, so I had always HAD to use a full coverage foundation to get an even tone, so LORAC worked great to achieve that for me. But as I used it my skin improved I'ev been able to get away with mixing a little foundation with my daily facial moisturizer to get the lighter desired coverage.

            My only complaint would be that after application the foundation still stays damp on my face for a little bit so it makes it difficult to apply blush or bronzer evenly. I usually have to wait 10-15 minutes for it to dry. Otherwise great product and I will be purchasing again!

              Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

              I am a single mom on a budget but I really want to try this. Now I am surly going to be broke because I really really love it. I apply it with my fingers first & then rub it in with a make-up brush. It is lightweight, yet still covers well...it doesn't hide my freckles, yet hides skin imperfections (dark circles) & it also minimizes the appearance of breakouts. PLUS it is all natural! I love it! The only cons I can think of is 1 - the price. It is pricey! 2 - If I apply too much it will clump in the small lines under my eyes...That could probably be avoided w/a powder foundation though ;-) I love this product!!!!!!!!!!! & the color is PERFECT for my porcelain skin tone!

                  The closest Natural Performance shade to POREfection® Foundation in PR4 (Light Medium) would be NP3 (Light/Medium), but this shade has a yellow undertone to it whereas the POREfection® Foundation in PR4 has a pink undertone.
