      I use this for everyday wear and for work. Start light for a natural look or add on for more drama and coverage. Only experienced one pimple since using it and it was gone in hours! Definitely better for your skin than most stuff out there.

                Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

                I am typically a better brand buyer, but I've used the same drugstore brand compact for years. I recently decided to try Lorac, as I read many positive reviews. When I left my house this morning, my face looked nice (makeup slightly heavy, but nice). At lunch, I got out my compact and was very disappointed. My face looked very cakey--and my pores were definitely not hidden. In fact, I felt like this powder drew attention to my pores--at least several hours after applying. I didn't bother putting more on, because I knew it would just look worse. This will be returned. I'll stick to my $8.99 compact!

                  Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

                  I decided to splurge and try a brand foundation and powder. So far, this powder is excellent. I have found I like the end results better when using a makeup sponge to apply vs a brush. It's messy with a brush. I wish it came with an applicator.

                  I have found that I do have to reapply after 4-5 hrs. I have very sensitive, usually dry, but tone oily skin. This has not caused any breakouts for me, and I have gotten several compliments on it! It's not cakey at all. I would purchase again.

                        The LORAC POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder can be used as a setting powder by applying it with a light touch. However the powders are so beautifully and strongly pigmented that they definitely may be used as a powder foundation.

                        A:

                        We recommend POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder in PF3.5 (Medium Beige) or PF4 (Medium). PF3.5 works perfectly as a setting powder to Sheer POREfection® Foundation in PS5 (Medium Beige). If you are looking for more of a full coverage use from the powder, you can also try using PF4.

                        POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder does not contain an SPF.

                        If you are looking for a complexion product which does contain an SPF, we recommend trying LORAC's POREfection® Foundation which contains SPF20. You can use POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder to set your foundation, and it also works great for touch-ups throughout the day.

                        A:

                        Thank you for contacting LORAC Cosmetics! LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals and we are not owned by another company.

                        We hope this helps, please let us know if LORAC can further assist you!

                        If you wear a PF2 (LIGHT) as your POREfection® Baked Perfecting Powder shade, we would recommend trying PC1 (FAIR) or PC2 (LIGHT) as these are both lighter shades. PC1 (FAIR) has a beige undertone, and PC2 (LIGHT) has a yellow undertone. For the best match to your complexion, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty store to have a pro artist help match which shade is best for you.
