    Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

    Very disappointed with this product. I was looking for a change, and this product is what a consultant recommended. Once I tried it, I found that it was not all she had made it out to be. I separated on my skin and had very poor coverage.

      I love this foundation. It covers and blends well. Not too heavy, but not light. I have fairly dry skin and it is not too drying. I love the design as well, makes it very easy to use. I definitely recommend this product!

        I thought that it was okay. It was really light weight but it didn't last as long as I was hoping and it definitely made me shinier than i prefer.

            Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

            I have tried lots of liquid foundations, but this is by far the best. It gives great coverage, especially for adult acne, and it stays on all day! I have oily, acne prone skin, and this foundation doesn't irritate it at all.

            It is a little heavy, I'm assuming that's how it is able to stay on all day/night and provide great coverage, so it's not something I would wear on a hot day where it would be wiped or sweated off (that's what the Benefit BB cream is for!)but for typical wear (to the office/night out) it is perfect.

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

                  LORAC does not claim that Natural Performance Foundation is non-comedogenic, but it is oil-, paraben-, and fragrance-free and suitable for all 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.
