Lorac Breakthrough Performance Foundation and POREfection Baked Powder Review

Sunday, November 11, 2012

These are my absolute holy grail face products. Together they make my skin look so naturally flawless, it is AMAZING!!! The foundation is just so silky and feels like nothing is on your face. I don't know how LORAC did it...but they did.  They have created the perfect foundation. It stays on your face until you wash it off, and it looks flawless throughout the whole day. Top it off with the POREfection powder, and you are in complexion heaven. I wear the color SMS 1 in the Breakthrough Performance Foundation, and FAIR in the POREfection Baked Powder.

Lorac Breakthrough Performance Foundation:

The foundation is only on the right side of my face. It blends so well into the skin!

Now I have the foundation blended over my entire face. The difference is AMAZING! It looks like this all day long!

Now for the completed look. I have the foundation blended all over my face. The POREfection powder is dusted all over my face to set everything in place, and get rid of pesky pores!!!

I do not use a primer with this foundation. It's staying power is strong enough that it really doesn't need one.  Both of these products are great for sensitive and breakout prone skin. I have not had one breakout since using these beauties.  They are formulated to keep the skin clear and healthy. The powder actually has salicylic acid in it!

    1. I swear lorac seems like it does not get the hype it deserves

      1. You are soooo right! It seems like the Youtube world has really taken over in telling girls what products they have to have...then noone branches out!

    2. What is your favorite brush for applying foundation? and I agree, lorac should get way more hype!

    3. With this foundation I love using my 190, any kind of flat foundation brush. I also love using Ulta's version of the Beauty Blender!
