beauty review: Lorac POREfection foundation

oil, paraben and fragrance free…just a few of the standout features of the new LORAC POREfection Poreless Foundation {oh, and it also contains SPF 20}.

in addition, this new foundation is infused with anti-aging antioxidants: vitamins A and E, olive leaf extract, lemon fruit extract and papaya fruit extract. these ingredients help soothe, nourish and rejuvenate, and as i'm sure you already know, the SPF 20 provides protection from uva/uvb rays.

Carol Shaw, creator of LORAC says, "when formulating POREfection Foundation, i combined the best of nature {natural ingredients} and the best of science to create a makeup that performs ~ it has great slip and full coverage with a natural finish…i love the professional look and feel of this makeup."

the shade sent to me {PR-8 golden tan} unfortunately was one shade too light, but this didn't really seem to be an issue once my full face was on {and i was able to be a little more liberal with my bronzer, LOL}. i wore it daily for a good week {indoors and out} and i wore it alternating between other foundations from day to day for another week. needless to say, i got to know this foundation quite well...

it's not a long-wearing foundation, but i found it performed well enough. i like that the coverage is buildable, never cakey looking, and the finish is natural. i did have to do touch-ups of my makeup after about 6 hours {sometimes 4-5 hours depending on the day} because it did begin to wear off. and in case you were wondering, i always use a primer, and i applied it in various ways ~ sometimes with my fingers, sometime a sponge and/or with a brush.

my favorite thing about POREfection {that i wish my beloved drugstore foundations would adopt} is the pump. it's the fabulous kind of pump that pushes the product up as it's used {love that} so nothing is wasted and it keeps the foundation sanitary. i also appreciate that POREfection is a true multitasker. not only does it set out to keep skin healthy, youthful-looking and radiant, but provides good coverage and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. :)

while this wasn't an absolute i-can't-live-without-this-foundation home run for me, and i truly believe that makeup experiences, preferences and the like are personal, i definitely think LORAC POREfection is worth trying for yourself! find out more by visiting you can also visit your local Kohl's or Sephora to see/try it in person!
