      Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

      My go to has always been Urban Decay's One and Done, but wanted to have a good back up. Sheer POREfection Foundation has become my new favorite! A little goes a long way and it blends out effortlessly. I don't think you even need setting powder, but I do out of habit.I like light to medium coverage, so this is perfect for that. This foundation is not talked about a lot and it really should be. I was pleasantly impressed.

          I was extremely impressed with this foundation. It is marketed as sheer coverage, but offers much more. It has a natural finish with medium-full coverage when a sponge is used to apply. It is oil free and is great for acne prone skin.

              I was color matched in store by an Ulta employee. It was way too pink, even though it was supposed to be a yellow tone. The next yellow shade is too dark.
              The coverage was decent, but it seemed to cling onto my dry spots. I returned it.

                  Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

                  Lorac is one of my favorite brands I love their contour....eyeshadow...and matte lip products. Decided to try the foundation and was disappointed in this one. Coverage was terrible unless you layer and layer. It was almost watered down or see through. It was shiny/greasy. May be best for dry to normal skin only. Smell was ok, but this was definitely not my favorite product.

                    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.

                      If you are looking for a more natural/matte finish, our Sheer POREfection formula is the best choice. We recommend visiting your local ULTA to have one of their Prestige Consultants match you with your perfect shade.
