    Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

    Great sheer coverage, looked fabulous after application. However, it didn't stand the test of time unfortunately. With my oily skin and large pores, even with care and powder it did not last and keep it's smooth original look

      Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

      I was looking for a med coverage with a natural / radiant finish. This says "good for senstive skin". I have senstive skin that leans towards dry. Upon application it took forever to blend it out both with brush and beauty blender. The coverage was sheer, light after several attempts to add more product. It didn't blend into the skin and was patchy. Once set with setting powder, after about 1 hr my face felt warm and the foundation started to break down on random spots on my face. I washed my face which was red,and hot. Following day has several small pimple like marks on my face. I never break out. Took about 2 days for my skin to get somewhat back to normal ( I use sk ii which I think sped up the process to get my skin back to normal). This was returned and I won't buy from this brand again, bc it said for senstive skin and clearly is not.

        Too much pink undertone

        By Winnie Rose

        from Walnut, CA

        Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

        I was excited to try a no -cruelty foundation for the first time. I am a warm tan with yellow undertones, and I purchased the the golden-light color.

        It was unfortunately a little light and has too much pink undertones.

        I wish Lorac can expand their color ranges to have selections for warmer/yellow undertones. But overall great foundation.

        amazing product!

        from California

        Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

        I accidentally ordered this and had normally bought the regular porefection foundation and LOVED that one...but after using this one I will stick with this since it covers so well and feels light on the face! Don't get me wrong the porefection foundation works amazing too! but if you don't need to cover up so much this is even better and feels great on the face!

        I have tried numerous high end foundations and by far this is my favorite. First purchase and I'm sold! I am 48 and my face looks flawless! Beautiful coverage yet lightweight. Definitely buildable but not necessary one coat and it's perfect!

          • Q:

            Hi, so I'm just trying to figure out which shade I should purchase. I do not live near an Ulta. I use the Lorac porefection concealer in PC2 light and PC5 medium and mix the two together to get a perfect color. Also, i have Naked Urban Decay liquid foundation in shade 2.0 which matches my skin perfectly.
