No, I don't use foundation everyday. In fact, it's more of a 2-3 days a week kind of thing. The reason for this, is this: I like my skin. My skin isn't extremely oily or dry, I don't have mush redness, and I don't break out often (knock on wood!). However, when I am having one of those days where I feel like giving my skin a boost, I've been L-O-V-I-N-G the Lorac Natural Performance Foundation.
A few weeks ago, Lorac sent me a small package that included this foundation and a gel eyeliner (post about that coming sooon!). I had to pick out my foundation shade online, so I was kind of nervous about how it would match my skin. Let me tell you: this. stuff. matches. perfectly.
PERFECTLY! Waaayy better than the couple of other foundations I actually picked out in person. I'm in the color "Porcelain".
The texture/consistency of his product is smooth and creamy-not super thin, but still not super thick. It blends incredibly well, and I found that it applies the easiest when I use my fingers for the general blending, but then use a brush to really blend out the edges.
The coverage is definitely build-able, but overall I'd say it's light to medium. If you have a pimple you can definitely dab a little extra on it and blend it in to cover it a bit more. The finish of it is, well, natural. It blends so well with my skin tone and texture you can hardly tell I'm wearing any face makeup at all. For me, it lasts a full day without primer, but for someone who has oily skin it might be different.
Here is my current foundation routine so you can see where I use it and how it looks:

wet n wild's Natural Blend Pressed Powder. I think it helps it stay in place longer and matte-ifys it a bit more.
In other makeup news, I made an exciting purchase yesterday:
I bought my first ever M.A.C. product! As you can see, I purchased "All That Glitters" eyeshadow. Ermehgerrrddd! I LOVE it! Today, I'm wearing it all over my lid with the color below by Lorac in my crease.
