Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

All you need is a pearl drop to cover your whole face. It really makes your pores disappear and gives an absolutely smooth, matte finish. The key is to let it set for about 2 minutes before putting on foundation. This product is worth every penny!

    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    tried this primer after reading such great reviews. it is smooth, goes on easily, and blends makeup perfectly. helps eliminate face sweating and smearing of makeup throughout the day (even in the hot summer days) i'll use this even if i'm not using makeup one day just to hydrate my skin! best value is you only need a pea sized amount so the bottle will last!

        Great for oily Tzone

        By A beautiful disaster

        from Gilbert AZ

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

        I love this primer. It does help keep my oily Tzone controlled. For the days I don't feel like wearing makeup I use this primer to help keep the shine off and even out my skin a bit. Only use a pea size amount or it will roll as it is a thicker consistency. It doesn't work well with my tarte foundations but any other foundation it works well for me.

            Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

            I'm glad I only received this as a sample with my order. This is by far the worst primer I have tried on. Everything seemed alright when I applied it on before my make up. But during the day, I began to notice that my T zone was way too oily. It just made my make up look too dewy and gross. I live in the NY area and yesterday was too humid. My face literally looked bad. My nose was beyond oily. My make up literally was coming off. I touched my face and it was just completely was covered in make up.

              Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

              With very oily skin it is difficult to stay fresh looking in the Florida heat but this product has made a huge difference. I almost didn't try it because it looked greasy but it blends on my face so smooth my finger just glides across. With or without sunscreen. Make up stays fresh for about 5 hours.
              Love it!

                I apply this under my foundation every a.m. & it really helps my makeup stay in place. It's made it thru sweat, swimming, dirt, and murph: without coming off, yet it's easy to wash off every night. I've tried 6 other primers BC they were free samples and I hated them all BC they did not live up to the lorac. This keeps my combination skin nice and matte all day.

                The best primer

                Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

                Lots of primers out there and most of them do a pretty good job. I received a sample of the Lorac and found that I loved how it went on and how beautifully my make up stayed on all day. I was hooked. Then I read that it's got salicylic acid and vitamins, all the more reason to stick with this one. Benefits in addition to its magic as a great primer.

                    A:

                    POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and primes the face for long-lasting makeup wear. However, this primer is not intended to be used as a cover-up.
