Since I seem to need to force myself back into the habit of writing a post a day (or one every two/three days), I can't wait too long for my photo issues to be resolved before giving in to just posting the best ones I can get. So moving on, LORAC foundation!
Breakthrough Performance has been hit and miss with me since I bought it, but I never returned it. Supposedly it is oil-free and anti-aging, but you've heard this before--I have no way of validating any anti-aging claims! I can tell you that the formula is somewhere between lightweight and heavy, and the coverage is sheer to medium. It feels thicker when I put it on, but especially with this product I can't find the patience to put it on in thinner layers. When I try to build up the coverage through layers, I can not see any difference between the first and fourth layer other than all of it is starting to smear and there is still sheer coverage.

What DO I use this for? A nice layer of sheer coverage and SPF when I want a super low-maintenance look that I don't powder and don't care that it comes off during the day. It's my "housework with a side of errand-running" foundation, and LORAC serves me well as such.
There is no smell/scent to this product. It's tube can be finicky to twist up sometimes, and the hair-trigger will pump out a different amount of product each time. Just be aware of that. I do not get overly oily or dry when wearing this, so everything seems to balance nicely on my skin. Also, so far I have not noticed breakouts stemming from the use of this product.

I got mine at Sephora, but LORAC is available online and through Sephora.com.
