      Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

      First time buyer based ono a recommendation from someone in the store. The shade fit my skin tone perfectly in comparison to the use of Sephora's ID thing which gave me horrible choices. Will definitely buy again since I found that it does not break out my sensitive acne prone skin that much. Finding the perfect foundation may just be the one that your skin likes and fits your needs.

      Applying using a brush, product can be layered but with my oily acne prone skin this product doesn't help control my shiny areas. It has s clean light weight feel but can be shiny if you like that look.

      I was a long time Clinic user until their City Base foundation changed, so I tried the Lorac based on a suggestion from an Ulta associate and I was hooked, Lorac provides good coverage, adjusts to sensitive skin and has a good color selection, it is a bit heavy (just a bit) but it makes my skin feel really nice.

        I have purchased this foundation twice now and I don't think I'll ever buy a different foundation again. I am in love with this foundation by Lorac. I wear the lightest shade a day it's a perfect match for my skin tone. It goes on smoothly and blends nicely. It is a bit pricey compared to what I use to buy but I guess you really do get what you pay for. No complaints from me!

          I use this product daily, which is why i like the SPF version of it. I love that its light weight in the face and that its hypoallergenic. It doesn't clog my pores and it covers blemishes if need be. The only thing i do not like about it is the price. Although i enjoy the product loyaly, i really wish it was cheaper.

                It's hard to find a foundation that matches my olive completion and I have combination skin as well. This foundation is awesome on my skin and the trick is blending and using a good blending brush.

                          Natural Performance Foundation in NP2 (LIGHT) is the closest match to CC Cream in CC1 (LIGHT). Both shades are light with a yellow undertone.

                          A:

                          Natural Performance in NP5 is still yellow based, however, this shade does have warm beige undertones. If you have a true yellow undertone, we recommend trying NP4 which has near the same depth but with more golden undertones that will help blend better.

                          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!

                          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.
