Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars
This foundation looks and feels amazing. I'm usually a tinted moisturizer kinda of girl since foundations tend to look heavy and cakey on me. This one is very light weight, doesn't feel like anything's on my face and looks very natural and smooth. The packaging is very compact which is great for travel/saving space. I combined it with the new Lorac glass primer and they make my skin look amazing. For reference, I have combination skin and I'm usually use light/light neutral makeup. I bought the color 6 for this foundation and it worked out great for me. It's a bit yellower than me but it doesn't seem too yellow anymore on my face once it's blended in. I figured it'll look great once I get more color over the summer. It sucks they had no chart listing the shade names with undertones. I took a wild guess based on the colors some beauty influences on Instagram use. Overall, I love this foundation and it looks great throughout the day!
Initial use I was impressed with coverage and slip. Dry down was good and the fragrance it puts out dissipates quickly (yes it does smell like maple syrup). After the third use, I broke out across my cheeks and chin. Now saying that, I wonder if it is from wearing a mask. I usually don't have break outs anymore as I am 52. But I'm suspicious because of the fragrance. No skincare products should have fragrance. On the fence about returning it. Foundation purchasing is a problem now with no testing of colors and feeling texture.

Lorac left no choice but to select this when they quit making the PoreFection foundation. This has no sunscreen and it has an odor similar to molasses. I use it because it doesn't break my face out.

I love love this foundation, awesome coverage and beautiful finish on skin

I love it one of the reasons I love it is because it doesn't crease and settle in my lines and it's very very hard to find products they don't do that. I can't get over the coverage when I first tried it I was so skeptical, because it is runny and well, it just didn't seem like it was gonna be that great…! And it is in my opinion… To apply it I use a beauty blender and it goes on amazing and for me honestly a little bit goes a long way. … I have large pores texturize skin, but yet this one seems to work good for me and not feel too heavy.… I wouldn't say it's totally water resistant, but good enough because let me tell you I've cried while having it on and it does not streak not at all at least not for me and like I said, I'm almost 46 years old. I'm a 45 year old woman so it's been a struggle for me and I know other people have been saying a lot of different things then I am saying, but I know for me personally it is one of my favorites and always will be! And I highly recommend for more mature skin… I really really do … I have used a brush with it before and it does work good as well. Not a matte either. Just a beautiful natural finish not too dewy. Put it to you this way whenever I use the Lorac foundation, I always get compliments oh, and before I forget, it does not crease on my eyelids, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves ever 😂.

I couldn't get porefection in my shade so I had to get this. It just doesn't match up to porefection. I've been using lorac for over 15 yrs(?) but I may have to look elsewhere. So disappointed. Porefection WAS perfection. If there is a way to get porefection in my shade let me know.

Since the perfection foundation was discontinued I thought this pro version would somehow be better. It is not. It is very heavy coverage and cakes on. It truely smells like maple syrup. Laura Mercier makes a tinted moisturizer w SPF that is more like porefection formerly by Lorac.

I HATE this foundation. I used the lorac sheer porefection foundation foe years. when it was discontinued I was upset but thought I would give this new product a try. I used a primer under. I used an applicator sponge. it is terrible. it is thick. I was hoping this would equate to better coverage. no such luck. it settles into pores and fine lines. it looks chalky on the skin. it transfers easily. I HATE this foundation. 😒

Great coverage. Nice replacement for the Porefection foundation that was discontinued.

This doesn't dry down and the colors are more gray/dull compared to previous Lorac foundation lines. It's disappointing that they got rid of all the good ones. This leaves a satin finish with full coverage but feels like a layer of lightweight oil and will transfer so easily that it's embarrassing.

This foundation looks beautiful on the skin. Not cakey & doesn't cling to lines and pores. one of my top foundations!
Kook2 from Chicago
This foundation is so light yet it covers fully. Unlike many foundations this one makes my skin look younger. Combining it with the light source 3 in 1 illuminating primer is my favorite combination
Neetz from Florida
Packaging of liquid very poor. Thought it screwed. It doesn't. Couldn't get it back to work properly.
Foundation very runny.
I will not order again.
Anj from northern california
Great coverage but settles into my pores. Love the feel and smell—does smell like maple syrup. Doesn't take a lot of product for good coverage.
Uluvanurse2 from Louisiana
I love the coverage and you only need a small amount. I have sensitive skin and I had no problems with this foundation. I love the coverage. I will definitely buy it again!!!

I finally found a fair olive shade that matches me in 04. The formula of this.......why is there not more hype? It's so so so good! Long wear. Natural finish. Super easy to blend. Smoothing. Lightweight and Thin. formula. Medium builds me coverage to full. Non cakey. Fabulous product.
I have combo sensitive skin and this has completely taken over my makeup routine.
As a side note, this is also one of the very few foundations that will hold up in 105 AZ heat.
This is a dupe for the Pat McGrath Sublime Foundation. Super fluid and thin with a high pigment. Dries down to a satin finish and it super flattering on texter. I have very combination skin and this sits well on all areas of my skin. Applies well with a brush or sponge.
I think the negative reviews are people using to much product. Keep it thin like the PG foundation.
Shade 4 is great if you are fair with an olive undertone.
Melissa from Louisville
Pros: outstanding coverage, despite seeming watery. Evens out skin tone beautifully. Lasts literally all day. Doesn't settle in pores or creases. Looks great on the skin. It feels very light and didn't look cakey on me.
Cons: the strong caramel smell… it's so difficult to get past, it's just so sweet - almost nauseating. If you don't like to wear sweet scents this will be a problem.
After 4 hours on my face, my cheeks, around my nostrils and under my eyes all felt like they were cracking. One day I put down a hydrating primer and had the same problem - I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off my face.
If you have more oily skin this foundation might be fabulous for you. If you have dry skin, I would stay away. Good product, just not for me.

Too thin, not enough coverage for large pores. Please bring back Porefection!!! Would like my money back.
Madison from Michigan
I've been using this foundation for a year now and it is amazing. Full coverage with a natural finish but it is super light on the skin and fills in every pore. Only foundation I will ever use!

Not even close previous line, shade different, unique smell. I have the original one & its not even close. Thicker. Ended up giving it to a friend
Green lady from USA
I got the shade light four , first I was exited because it's almost the same as urban decay 30cg which I know has an olive undertone although when you start blending it and start searching it enough , it may have the identical overtone but it's not olive , it's more warm undertone than an olive undertone . It's also pretty yellow and looks like more of a light warm undertone than an olive undertone . Where is that green? Other than that the finish and coverage is nice . Last all day .

This product I was completely satisfied with. the color lasted a lot longer then i expected. I'm not sure how I feel about purchasing this in the future it's a little watery for my taste. I would recommend if you like more watery products.
Stacey from Albany Ga
My face seemed a little white and when I blow my nose with a tissue I will have to reapply make up. When I reapply it will leave a streak where original layer of make up and powder is and will not blend seamlessly.
Mlavair from Ogdensburg ny
I don't ever rave about anything but I'm telling you I'm raving about this foundation! It's the best foundation I have ever used! I have used a ton of them too!! It makes my face feel and look amazing!!!!!!!
Kat124 from Brick, NJ
I just started using LORAC Pro Soft Focus Longwear and couldn't be more pleased! The foundation has a nice matte finish and is easy to apply. I love that is gives my skin smooth and even coverage that last all day. I highly recommend this product!
