Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
Okay this is the thickest, most heavy, high coverage foundation that has ever touched my face. I only give it two stars bc when a little tiny bit of this foundation is mixed with my FAB coconut moisturizing primer stuff it becomes a light, beautiful foundation that I love. It does not last long at all though when I mix those two. But this product alone is a 0 star product and my dry skin HATES it

This foundation was not a good one for my skin type. I become very oily, but I have created a routine that keeps the oil at bay. Even with this routine I found that the foundation was cracking along the creases of my nose as well as on my smile lines. I also found that the foundation started to separate on my skin after about 4 hours. I think it would work better for dry skin types potentially.

Meh... I mean, if you like really THICK full coverage foundation, then this would be for you. My friend recommended it to me because she has freckles and says this is the only one that will cover them all of the way. By skin did look very smooth and nice, but I couldnt get over the texture and just how thick it was. I love me a full coverage foundation but this was just a little much for me lol Oh, it also oxidized a bit on me. Not anything crazy but I did notice it went from being a perfect shade match to more orangey. I think this is great for anyone with lots of blemishes to cover, but for everyday wear, this would be a lot

I love this foundation. I have pretty oily skin and tend to sweat on my upper lip under my nose way more than the rest of my face. Usually in the summertime, that part of my foundation gets patchy throughout the day, but with this foundation it really stays in place when  I blot my face. It is very full coverage and really does the trick when I get breakouts. I love that it covers all my blemishes and patchy red tones in my cheeks. I rarely even find myself using any concealer with this foundation. Although I will say, the Sephora near me did not have all the colors in their inventory, so I had to do some experimenting with ordering foundation colors to find my shade. All they could help me with was estimating which color/undertone I would be. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Review for: 74 Deep - Warm Undertone more...
If you love full coverage then this would definitely be for you. I don't really like full coverage so it wasn't my favorite but if you're trying to wear makeup for an event then this would definitely be a go to. It's a decent price in my opinion but I'm a makeup addict so $40 Is typically how much I pay for foundation. It lasts a long time without creasing and it doesn't oxidize too terribly.

After shaking it up and applying it thinly on top of a primer, it has a nice patte finish. Looks great after adding a little bit of powder. Do not use without a primer or it will sink into pores and crack. It lasted the entirety of a party and I looked good.

Review for: 62 Medium - Warm Undertone more...
This is a really great full-coverage foundation. A little goes on a long way so a bottle of this can last a long time. It doesn’t feel cake/y on my skin like a lot of full coverage foundations do. I also didn’t experience any cracking or creasing. I put this foundation on before going to work a bartending shift for 8 hours. I have oily skin so my t-zone was a little oily, but there was no creasing which is amazing! This foundation oxidized a little bit but nothing crazy. The picture attached shows the on the left the foundation after I set it with a powder and applied my powder contour, and the picture on the right is after I had gotten done working at the bar.

Note: I received this product free for testing purposes.

I used to have a lot of pervasive acne and this covered it extremely well. Thick and very full coverage. You don't need to apply multiple coats. I was long lasting however, felt very cakey on the skin. I would not recommend to anyone trying to clear up their acne. However, if scars are an issue it would definitely be helpful in getting an even surface to apply the rest of the face.

This is the ONLY foundation that matches my skin tone, and didn’t irritate my skin and cause me to break out. In fact, I used this foundation to cover up my acne, and it actually seemed to help stop my break outs. I got it at Sephora, and highly HIGHLY recommend this foundation!!!

Review for: 56 Medium-Neutral Undertone more...
This is the most full coverage foundation I have ever found. It feels a little heavy when applying more than one pump, but there is no doubt that it is full coverage! It’s a beautiful matte finish and wears well through long hot days. I have gone through so many of these over the years and is a staple piece in my makeup bag! There is so much product and you don’t need a lot so you get your money’s worth!

What is the best way to apply? fingers? brush? beauty blender?

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?
