    I know SPF is important, but even being near my eyes irritates them and it is very hard to find makeup without SPF. The colors are good and don't fade.

        Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

        I've been a pretty loyal Amazonian Clay user for a long time, but recently I've been having issues with dry skin and enlarged pores and the clay foundation really seemed to sit down in there and make them look worse. A MUA friend recommended I try this foundation as an alternative.

        So far I'm impressed! This is not a full coverage foundation straight from the bottle, but it's extremely buildable without looking cakey. I do an all over layer of light coverage and then go back once it's dry and build coverage over my cheeks and chin where I need it. The trick to applying it is to use a beauty blender and pat it on for really good even coverage. It sits on top of my imperfections and covers them well. I use fixer to extend the wear, but even on the one occasion I didn't it stayed put most of the day and didn't crease or slide off. It's definitely a new favorite!

          Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

          I was a BareMinerals "refugee" once I hit age 30 and my skin was too dry to carry on with mineral makeup. This was recommended to me at Ulta, and I'm glad I made the plunge into liquid foundation! I'm very fair with dry skin, oily nose, and ruddy cheeks. This stuff goes on very well (I use the IT BRUSHES FOR ULTA blurring foundation one), and gives a medium coverage. It does not break me out and does seem to stay put throughout the day. The finish is a more matte than I care for (just personal preference), so I will probably hunt for something more dewy when I run out. Overall, a great foundation!!

              I bought this product because sunscreen in foundation usually breaks me out. So I was excited when the girl showed me this. For the price I am extremely disappointed. It is extremely light coverage but feels thick going on. I couldn't even tell I had anything on. All my imperfection showed right through after two applications. It is also very sticky. After only an hour or so it settled right into your pores and looks blotchy and uneven. Would not recommend!

                      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.

                      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 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.
