    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    I use a brush that's shaped like a mushroom and I use circular movements and the finish is smooth and flawless. Great product well worth the price because a nice foundation can really be difficult to find as everyone knows.

    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    I wasn't very crazy about this product. I have combination skin, and no matter how much moisturiser I apply to my dry cheeks, this foundation seems to highlight the dryness (the Maybelline one I bought did not). It also feels very oily for me after a bit, and after a bit, looks almost cracked on my skin. This foundation is probably great for those lucky normal-skinned people, but it just wasn't for me.

        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!

            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.

                    A:

                    Natural Performance Foundation is good for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The foundation formula is free of parabens, synthetic fragrances and dyes, petro chemicals, phthalates, GMO's and triclosan, however, if you have particular sensitivities, you should consult your physician and/or use the product in question on a very limited basis to evaluate your level of tolerance. We hope this helps and please let us know if LORAC can further assist you!

                    A:

                    The closest match in Natural Performance Foundation to Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS4 is NP4 (Medium). Both shades are similar in depth, however, NP4 has more of a pink undertone and SMS4 has more of a yellow undertone. For the best foundation shade match, we recommend visiting your local Ulta store to have a beauty consultant help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.
