      I have been looking for a powder that will give my some coverage, without being too drying or settling into my wrinkles. This is perfect! It blends really well and looks very fresh and clean - not overdone or too made up. Love it!!

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        I am not using any foundation just powder for mattiying purposes. I have good skin (no acne etc..) This powder did not cause any acne or skin irritations but it did not mattify for over 2 hours unfortunately and I do not even have too oily skin- Just normal.

        This was my second High end brand powder and I am not as satisfied as the ULTA Associate was suggesting this product...

        Well anyway, I brought it back and purchased another powder.

        worst powder foundation ever

        By christal

        from long island, ny

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        I bought this powder spur of the moment, and I so badly wanted to love it. But it actually made my pores look WORSE than they ever have before. This is actually the first and only product I have ever returned to ulta in 5 years. Hopefully everyone else has better luck with it.

            I am a beauty junkie, I try something new every time...however I have bought this THREE times! That's saying a lot! It is my go to! Makes my skin look airbrushed and smooth. I am obsessed with this powder and will buy it forever! I set my foundation with it and if I have any red bumps standing out I apply a little extra with a small brush and it conceals it perfectly!

                Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

                I *am* a budget buyer but will $pend for skin care products - I include face powder in this because I prefer to skip the foundation and BB/CC creams. This stuff isn't cheap, but it IS worth the money. That said...

                I really like how this powder evens out my skin color without feeling heavy. I apply it with a big brush by dabbing, not sweeping. I once applied it with a sponge to see how it would look but went on way to thick/heavy.

                I've only been using it for a couple of weeks but really like it so far. Even though I'm in my 40s, my skin is still prone to breakouts. While I can't claim this has improved that condition (which I was hoping, given that it contains salicylic acid), it hasn't made it any worse :-)

                It gives me good, even coverage without settling into my lines and inadvertently highlighting them like many other powders do. For that, this is really great stuff!

                  Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

                  I love Lorac as a brand and their powders are usually pretty solid. I this is a good powder but not what I expected from the brand. 1) it didn't come with any type of applicator 2) it has started to crack already 3) very messy in because of how powdery it is. It has good coverage once it's on and the color options are great. Unfortunately the 3 cons I listed will keep me from buying this again.

                      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.
