Lorac Touch-Up To Go is a new click pen foundation that the brand released for Spring 2013. Touch-Up to Go isn’t an innovative foundation product by any means as brands have embraced click style pens a plenty in the foundation world. The funny thing about these style foundations is that they are almost always an excellent formula for me and Lorac’s is no different.
Take a look!
Lorac Touch-Up To Go ($28) is available in twelve shades and features an oil, paraben, and fragrance-free formula packed with vitamins A & E, acai berry, white and green tea.
Now they get slightly off track with the formula as they market it as a foundation and concealer product all in one. At first I thought they were addressing concealing issues on one’s face but no they actually mean under eyes as well.
Ummm no. It’s far too sheer a product to use under your eyes particularly if you have a ton going on under their. I personally want to conceal minor dark circles, some puffiness, and fine lines. My eyes tend to look tired without concealer and I rely on my concealer to perfect them. Sadly, this is too sheer a product for me to be comfortable concealing with. If you use minimal concealer daily, mmmm….it might just work out for you but if you’re a fuller coverage concealer girl I’d say no, this won’t multitask.
Some people are going to love this and some people won’t. It really depends on what you want from your foundation product. I personally love it because it provides sheer coverage that perfects but doesn’t offer major coverage. This is what I expect and want from base products. I don’t want a ton of foundation on my face because I don’t need it. I do however, want something to brighten my face, ease dullness, and make my skin look alive and awake. This provides all that. It does not however, offer coverage for acne scarring, darkness, or major issues. If you reply on your foundation to conceal major problems you won’t like how sheer this is.
This comes in a larger click style pen with a brush applicator. You click, product flows into the brush head, you swipe on, you blend out, you go! Done. Easy! Unfortunately the brush head doesn’t remove so it isn’t washable. I simply wipe it clean with a makeup wipe after each use. Product does flow quickly to the brush head so be careful! It also tends to drip off as the formula is creamy yet very runny. I clicked it and it dripped right onto my shirt. Just be careful. I tend to click a few times to get products like this started however, this requires maybe three clicks before product flows out so be careful not to get it on yourself, your clothes, etc…
As I mentioned the texture is creamy but it is quite runny. It has a nice hydrating dewy to the touch finish but isn’t oily nor greasy. It does not have a shiny finish either simply a soft, smooth dewy feel. I’d recommend it for those with drier skin however, oily skin might feel its a touch too moisturizing especially if you prefer a more mattifying foundation. It absorbs easily into my skin and leaves lightweight coverage behind. Again, as I mentioned, it merely perfects. So it does brighten and creates a nice flawless canvas for my makeup while easing my dullness and waking up my lackluster skin. It won’t however, offer buildable coverage. Or at least I don’t feel it will. The pigmentation just isn’t here for more than sheer coverage.

Overall, I personally loved it. It’s lightweight, very breathable, easy to apply, and my dry skin just sucks it up. It pretty much sticks to what I want and need in my foundation products. Sheer yet able to tackle dullness and brightens. If you desire more lightweight coverage this is a great pick. Especially as the weather becomes warmer!
It’s available now at Sephora or online at loraccosmetics.com
