      Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

      I've been buying this for nearly four years as a setting powder. It's incredibly light and adds just the right amount of added coverage to make my foundation look flawless. I've found that for my light to medium (depending on my level of self tan) I can use PF3 all year round, because even if it's too light, I can warm it up with bronzer. Honestly a gorgeous powder that I can't be without.

      NEW FAVORITE POWDER

      By Sav

      from Colorado

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

      Before I begin this review, let me start off by saying that this does not work as a foundation powder. Sure, you can absolutely build it up to a decent coverage, but when you do that it just looks way too heavy. However, I rated this product five stars because it is BEAUTIFUL as a setting powder for the face. I tend to like foundations with a little bit more "slip" and comfort. That being said, my foundations need to be set. As a setting powder, this product gives the most gorgeous, even, flawless finish. I honestly want to get a shade lighter than my skin tone to brighten up my under eyes. Also, the ingredients in this are really fantastic, especially for those with sensitive skin. This truly is such a unique powder, I'm absolutely in love!!

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder:

        Been wanting to buy this for so long and once I saw it was on sale I jumped right on it. So glad I did! I stopped using liquid foundation recently and now I only use concealer and powder for a little extra coverage. I was using the Laura Geller baked powder foundation but this Lorac one is amazing and now I'll never use anything else!!! I'm very oily and have big pores on my nose and cheeks, but this seriously makes them disappear and gives me a flawless finish! I also haven't gotten as oily as I typically do during the day. It gives a good amount of extra coverage but it doesn't cake up like other powders do-it looks like I'm barely wearing any makeup at all and I just naturally have good skin (but I don't). If you're on the fence just try this product and I swear it will be your favorite powder!!

          I have used MAC Studio Fix for 12+ years. I've tried every brand of powder foundation and have always ended up going back to MAC until this. This powder is so light, but provides excellent coverage. I have normal/ oily skin and this lasts through the entire day and night and even stays put through an occasional afternoon nap! The compact lasts forever it seems like. This is my new favorite and new go to.

            There are so many products out there, and I have tried them all! This has been the best results I have seen yet. I'm typically a banana powder lover. I have boughten every single pore minimizer there is in a Prestige brand on the market. I am the type that always wants to explore each brand. To see if there's one better than the other. Waste of money, because this Lorac pore minimizing powder is honestly the best formula on the market. Buy it!!! It truly works wonders. Especially, if you have large pores and oily skin!!!

              There is GLITTER in this product. The pieces are so small, you can barely see them, but Lorac is misrepresenting their product when they advertise it as having a "matte finish" when it clearly does not.

              That being said, the finish is slightly pearlescent, which is beautiful, but I was looking to get a matte powder.

                I've been using Tarte for a significant amount of time and was told to give Lorac a try because I would not be disappointed. The finish is very lightweight! I loved I didn't have to reapply throughout the day which I loved. I love this stuff!
