          Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

          I love the fact that I can wear this foundation with no burning, itching or breakouts, I have bought and returned so many foundations that I was afraid the girls at Ulta were going to refuse to sell me any more makeup, when lo and behold I found Lorac, my only wish is that the coverage was better with that said it is buildable. If you have very sensitive skin and trouble with foundations I would suggest you give this a try!

            I LOVE this foundation! It goes on easily, blends well, and stays all day. I've repeatedly bought it for almost two years now, and I cannot imagine wearing anything else! I've never been dissatisfied with any Lorac product.

            Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

            I am a foundation junky and will try anything. I went with this on a whim after running out of Make Up For Ever HD (so good!). It immediately caused breakouts, and after working for months to get my skin to clear up from a previous foundation, I was really sad to see this was causing the same issue.
            While it is much more long lasting than some other foundations I have tried, it broke up fairly quickly on my normal-oily skin. I had to either reapply or add a little powder to my face after a few hours, which led my face to just feel cakey by the end of the day.
            Overall - I would recommend this to someone who has little to no issues with their skin being sensitive/oily/prone to breakouts. It's a fantastic foundation, and the packaging is awesome, but it just wasn't for me, sadly.

                This product matched my skin tone perfectly and didn't cause any breakouts. Unfortunately, it made my dry patches show..I even applied it using a moistened makeup sponge. I would recommend this for normal skin types.

                    LORAC creator Carol Shaw uses LORAC POREfection Foundation and Natural Performance Foundation on her celebrity clients for photo shoots and Red Carpet events, and their skin always looks beautiful in pictures! She designs LORAC foundations and complexion products to perform flawlessly on and off the Red Carpet. Carol’s tip is to avoid the use of HD powders and other products with high levels of zinc when having your picture taken to minimize a "flashback" effect.

                    Depending on the depth of your skin tone, NP-8 Dark Tan or NP-9 Brown may be your best match. We recommend testing these shades at your nearest ULTA store to determine your perfect shade:
