    Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

    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.

        Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

        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.

              Comments about Lorac Sheer POREfection Foundation:

              I switched to Lorac from Too Faced and don't regret it. It's always difficult for me to find a foundation that I'm in love with so I'm super surprised. It's a little lighter than what I am used to but still covers wonderfully. I've had a bit of a break out but I suspect it's really just from switching formulas.

                  I have sensitive skin that is neither oily nor dry, acne prone, but fairly clear now except for a few blackheads/white heads. Which foundation would be best for my skin type, the sheer poreperfection or the regular poreperfection?

                    A:

                    While both are oil-free and great for sensitive skin, we would recommend Sheer POREfection for your skin.

                    A:

                    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.
