Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

After trying several different brands of powder, this is the one that I find myself buying over and over. I have very fair skin. The lightest color works well for me. It is light enough and still very flattering.

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

    I recently switched from Bare Minerals, after my Ulta was sold out of my usual shade, and it beats them at everything! It lasts longer, in that a little goes a long way and is long-wearing. Definitely worth a try if you're a Bare Minerals user!

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        Let me start off with my skin. I have oily skin that is somewhat acne prone. I have been using some topical gels and creams from my dermatologist to control the acne and scarring.
        So, I have a clean face ready for makeup. I put on some foundation, concealer, and top it off with this guy. I just used a regular powder brush to apply. I don't usually use primer, unless it's for an event or if I'm going to be out long enough. With that being said, when I first put on this powder, I LOOOVEEEDDD the way it just blended into my skin. This product controlled my oil and I thought I found "my precious", but that wasn't the case. Within an hour of the humid air in Texas, my face was oily. AN HOUR! I'm better off without this product when it comes to controlling my oily skin. I was super super excited because I thought this product "controls your oils", but it in fact made me worse. i also noticed, after two days of wearing the product, that I had developed some red-ish bumps on my face. My skin is just not liking this stuff. Apparently, everyone else likes this product. I don't know why this doesn't work for me.

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

          I use this as a finishing powder over my bb cream and concealer. My bb cream isn't quite my skin tone but with this powder over the top---it magically matches to my skin. It leaves a nice matte finish. I don't like the packaging. The powder goes EVERYWHERE. It goes get messy so I suggest covering your clothes before applying or apply before getting dressed because it is very loose and dusty. I've only noticed that with long wear that it does tend to settle into creases (I have dimples and smile lines by my eyes). For those with aged skin--it might be more prominent.

              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!!

                  You may find that Tan (Item #: 2232639) is the best match, although if you are in between shades, we recommend testing the product at an ULTA store:

                  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.
