A high-pigment foundation for full coverage with a long-lasting, beautiful finish. Kat created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage, without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed to match a broad range of skintones with bold coverage the proprietary pigments can even effectively cover tattoos. The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance. Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish and the added emollients provide a velvety texture for perfectly smooth, hydrated skin.

It is formulated Without:

- Parabens

- Synthetic Fragrances

This foundation has been formulated to work synergistically with Kat's Rehab Priming Elixir, Tattoo Concealer, and Lock 'N Load Setting Mist.

I I went to the mall and had the color matched for my skin before I purchased it, so the color was exactly what I expected. This is a very matte full coverage foundation, so it may not look the best if you have dry skin. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! is the key. Also, do not pump a lot out, because less is more with this product. You will probably only need a little more that a pea size pump to cover your entire face! I love that a little covers a lot, because that means we don't use as much on a daily basis. I use this everyday. It is my favorite foundation at the moment. I moisturize first, then primer, then foundation, and finally, I lock it into place with translucent power for a all day hold. It does not feel like I have makeup on with this foundation. A lot of full coverage foundation feels like it is caked on your face, but the Kat Von

Nice full coverage. I definitely do not plan on switching foundations anytime soon. With Only 2 pumps I completely and fully cover my face and and it isn't tacky.

I wanted this to work for me but it smells like paint, feels heavy, and the Wet n Wild photofocus is extremely similar so if you are going to try one get that!

This is a good foundation for full coverage that will stay in place. It doesn't take a lot of the product to cover the whole face. It is a very thick substance which I do not like but that's what comes with good coverage!
This is a really affordable high end foundation but I only have a few concerns. 1) It is very drying! It is a matte foundation so it is going to be drying, but I have oily skin and it was too much for me. I've tried to really moisturize my face before hand and it's still very dry. 2) because it is so dry/matte it gets patchy in certain areas. Places like my forehead or chin or around the nose. 3) it's hard to blend with a brush and fingers. I haven't tried it with a beauty blender but it's very hard to lend with a brush. Other than that it's very full coverage and very affordable!

Love this foundation! It is very full coverage, which works great for me because I have extremely red skin. The one downside it that this looks valet on dry skin- but that can be remedied by moisturizing before putting it on!

years and when they re formulated it was too thick. Bought everything from Channel to Lancôme and couldn’t find one with some hydration, coverage, and wearable for all day that didn’t feel thick. A friend on a whim offered me this, bc she bought the wrong color. I gave it a go and was so surprised as I’ve not used drugstore makeup before. I would still recommend using good moisturizer, eye cream, etc. P.S for giggles I purchased the glow primer that goes with this primer and didn’t fail me either. I normally use Lancôme’s glow primer and it’s quite nice as wel

Okay, I've been eyeing this for a while but I just don't want to buy a high end foundation again and be as disappointed as I was with the Too Faced Born This Way 😩 I have oily, acne prone, combination skin with a super dry nose. I have a lot of redness from acne and so on and I want something that covers it all instantly! I want something that stays matte all day, with or without primer, and doesn't melt off no matter the weather. I am super light (like ghost light) as well with a yellow undertone and wonder if they have any good shades. Does it oxidize? Does it wear off around the nose? Can you apply it both with a Beauty Blender and a brush? Would you say this is a foundation for me?

I really want to give this foundation a try and I have been hearing mixed reviews. Is this product worth the money or should I try something different?
