My search for the perfect foundation continues. I have been on the serious lookout for something that is liquid, provides full coverage, and stays matte the majority of the day. I tried a Lancome product first (see my review here) and next up is Lorac’s POREfection Foundation…
-Full coverage upon first application
-Pump up type packaging
-Blotchy after just a few hours
-Doesn’t stay put even with powder application
-Full coverage fades… acne, scarring, and oil clearly shine through
-$36.00 per bottle
Overall, I didn’t love this foundation and would only recommend it for those with dry skin. I truly did give it about 2 weeks for a fair shot and each morning it looked amazing immediately after application. After a few hours, though, it was pretty bad. The coverage faded and it looked very uneven. With concealer underneath the foundation I was able to provide more coverage, but the staying power just wasn’t there. I’m sure you have had the experience when you look in the mirror mid-afternoon and see some blotching. Well, this was extreme, and when I went to try to save it the patches got bigger and more noticeable. It just doesn’t move around well. Again, I don’t mind paying a higher price for a product that does what it claims, this one just didn’t for me.
On to the next… XOXO.
