    Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

    I'm not an everyday make up person and when I explained to the Ulta staff what I was looking for, this was a wonderful change from my old foundation. It's light and comfortable and easy to apply for a busy Mom like me.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

      It does what is says it does. It was kind of hard to match my skin color in the summer because I get a little dark. Not sure if the color goes with me or not but I won't return it. Love the way it feels and covers up yet not thick & does not cake up.

              Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

              I visited Ulta in search of a new loose powder that would offer enough coverage for the recent hormonal acne outbreaks I was experiencing while also providing a very natural look. Every loose or pressed powder I have used in the last year have either been too heavy causing my face to look like I had put on the heaviest foundation/powder on the market or didn't give me the right amount of coverage, thus exposing my embarrassing acne spots. I was always the girl who could "look natural" with minimal makeup and actually sold several name brand cosmetics for years - Lancome, Clinique, and Elizabeth Arden. I know what works for me and customers. I have oily skin. I am about to hit 40 and my body decided to go into hormonal acne mode as an early birthday present.

              This loose powder is exactly what the doctor ordered and is the product that you NEVER want discontinued. It lasts all day long, goes on sheer without looking cakey and controls oil (oily skin) like no other loose powder I've ever used. Kudos to whoever created this product. You are a lifesaver!

                I'm am very pleased with this powder. I find it
                comparable to MAC natural mineral skin finish. So if you like that one you will absolutely LOVE this powder.

                            POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder contains natural jojoba seed oil for hydration, and it is free of pore-clogging mineral oil, so it should not cause breakouts. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin.

                            While LORAC always provides ingredient listings of all substances contained in detectable levels in LORAC products, LORAC cannot be responsible for the disclosure from suppliers of raw materials and, therefore, any customer with a concern should seek the counsel of their physician.
