      Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

      Bought primarily based on good reviews. While not noticeable in the pan indoors, this powder does has tiny glitter specks in it, that, when worn in sunlight, really show. Some ppl don't mind--just not the look I was going for. This powder was okay....applied a little blotchy. It lasted pretty well, and the finish was good. Ultimately, I returned.

          I love this powder so much. I've gotten more compliments on my makeup since I've been using this powder. It's so easy to apply and it lasts! I use it to set my liquid and it makes my makeup matte and smooth. The color is awesome and matches very well with untanned me and me with a tan as well and it's the same shade! I'm so sad it's out of stock because I need this ASAP!

          i stumbled on a great powder

          By babsalot

          from Oak Ridge TN

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

          I bought this because it was on sale at Ulta and I needed powder. I needed something to keep my face looking matte and my makeup in place. I had read mixed reviews about this so I was hesitant but since Ulta has the best return policy I bought it. I'm glad I did. it leaves my face flawless, matte and last a long time. it blurs my pores beautifully and leaves the imperfections not covered by my foundation, covered with the pwder. I'd recommend this powder. I read complaints about pore coverage but I don't think you can expect miracles from a powder, it can only blur so much and if you have realistic expectations you should enjoy this powder

          Great Coverage - MESSY and wasteful

          By Emilie

          from MD

          Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

          Overall, I LOVE the light Coverage, Feel, Color and my overall look. I have normal to dry skin. In my early forties it's getting hard to find a Powder I like because I cant stand foundation on my face. Primer and powder (light weight thats all)
          However, This product is incredibly messy especially applied with a Powder brush. Alot of product is wasted goes all over the place when applied.

            I stopped using all powders after trying this. I have acne prone skin and this is the ONLY foundation that doesn't break me out. It feels light on my skin yet offers full coverage and gives me a flawless look. I only wished that Ulta carried darker shades.

              Love this!! Bought it because of the sale and so happy that I did! I usually use Balance and Brighten but no shade matches me and sometimes the finish is too shiny. Tried this and fell in love! Its perfect, light to medium coverage. Looks amazing on the skin and the best part is there is a shade that matches me!

              • Q:

                I'm a Lorac fan. I have most all your eyeshadows and blushes. I'm a full coverage gal with very oily skin. Can I use my full coverage foundation then apply this powder over it to give me the matte oil control finish I'm looking for without getting that cakey look? Will I have to blot throughout the day? Will it be long lasting? Please give me your honest opinion. I've been on the hunt for a matte long lasting oil control powder for a very long time. Spent tons of money and wasted lots of time. I'm tired. I just want a product that works.

                  A:

                  Our Porfection Baked Perfecting Powder was designed with oily skin in mind. It is a medium coverage, long wearing, baked powder that can be used alone, or on top of foundation. Unlike other powders, the finish looks airbrushed, not heavy or powdery. It also works well as a touch-up powder because it does absorb oil.

                  Tan (PF5) is darker than Medium Tan (PF 4.5). PF4 and PF4.5 are similar shades but PF4 is more neutral while PF 4.5 is more pink.
