    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    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!

      Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

      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.

                      I love this foundation but it wasn't as much coverage as I thought it was. I know it is build able but I would rather use something I can apply once and be done. If you want something light weight with a pretty natural finish this is for you.

                        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.

                        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.

                            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.

                            The Natural Performance shade NP2 is the closest shade to Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS2, but we recommend visiting your local Ulta store to find the best foundation match for you. A pro artist will be able to help match the perfect shade for your skin complexion.

                            This foundation does not contain sunscreen and is not SPF-rated.

                          lorac foundation- the color I use is SMS-5 and is anti aging formula. Can you please let me know which one is the similar color? I no longer see this number so I assume it is not available. Thanks

                            We suggest NP 6 (Light Tan) as your best match in this formula. LORAC Breakthrough Performance Foundation has been discontinued.
