Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

I had high hopes for this powder, but it did not meet my expectations. First, it does not come with a brysh or any kind of applicator. Then when I put it on with a brush the powder seemed to crumble and half was lost before the brush got to my face. The coverage was not great. The worst part was I wore it on a humid day and of course I got sweaty, when I would dab at the sweat with a hanky or just my fingers the powder just came off. Half way through the day it looked like I didn't have anything on my face! I have not ever had this happen with any other product I use on my face.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

      The finish of this powder reminds me of the hourglass powders. Very smooth with a hint of glow. I have 2 shades, 1 that matches me and one a little darker and use it in place of bronzer. Great for touch ups during the day. Gives a hint of coverage.

        Probably the most beautiful pressed powder I've ever used. Covers really nicely without caking on to my 35 y/o skin. Color options are really nice. Doesn't settle in creases. With a few spritzes of UD all nighter makeup looks flawless & airbrushed.

                          A:

                          We would suggest trying POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder in PF2 (LIGHT) or PF3 (LIGHT/MEDIUM). PF2 (LIGHT) has a pink undertone, whereas PF3 (LIGHT/MEDIUM) has more of a yellow undertone. However, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty location to have a pro artist help match the perfect shade to your complexion.

                          POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder provides light to medium coverage for a flawless, poreless-looking finish. It works great as a setting powder which can be used through the day for freshening up without getting cakey.

                          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.

                          PF3 corresponds to Light/Medium (Item #:2232637). If you need one shade lighter, choose Light (Item #:2232636).

                          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.
