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 received this in a VoxBox and fell in love with it! The coverage is incredible and doesn’t look cakey on my sometimes dry, 35 year old skin. It lasts all day and every time I use it I get compliments on my skin! Winner!

The finish of the overall foundation is nice, but it did not really stop my oils on my nose and t-zone from coming through at around the 5 hour mark.

I loved this foundation so much. My only problem with it was that this specific color was a little yellow for me. Besides that I absolutely love the formula. It’s easy to apply and blend and truly lasts all day long without giving an old oily look at the end of the day. I would highly recommend!

Review for: 64 Medium - Neutral Undertone more...
This is the first high end foundation I have used, and I am pretty impressed by it, but I would like to explore other brands.

The biggest thing that was keeping me from purchasing high end foundation is because I wear liquid foundation everyday and I was afraid I was going to be spending too much money purchasing all the time. This stuff lasts a long time though and I love that it has a pump to control how much you are using.

I have dry skin and large pores and some fine lines on my forehead. This is very matte and I like that. You do have to work fast with this though because it sets quickly. Very high coverage. It can get into your pores and lines if you do not use a good primer.

I tan and use the shade Medium 64, but to be honest the shade is kind of orange to me. I have also heard that people have had issues with this oxidizing on them.

Overall it's a nice foundation but doesn't absolutely "wow!" me.

This is honestly a really good foundation. The tricky part is finding a good primer to go with it. I've tried using a brush and sponge. It's best to apply with brush then use the sponge fora final touch up. Awesome product lasts more than8 hours, I've even fallen asleep with it on and it still looked flawless after a 3 hour nap!

Review for: 47 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
This is officially my new go to liquid foundation! I have combination skin but a little more on the dry side… And acne prone! Before using this foundation I have literally been using powder foundations for the last decade… Yes, even though I have dry skin I love the powder foundation! I don’t like the Cakey, heavy make up look And I felt most liquid foundations were too heavy and did not look natural… So I use the powder foundations and never had any issues. Until I tried this foundation… It does give a little more coverage but a little goes a long way! I literally use a Pea sized amount and it last me all day… Even stays put, for the most part, after a hard workout! I love that it’s vegan I just wish I had SPF because I am very light skin and not a big fan of the sun and it doesn’t help that I lived in Arizona! But I will forever use this foundation and less something changes in the formula!

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
I don't know about this foundation. I got a sample of it at sephora, and have tried it. It was definitely full coverage, but way to thick. It was so heavy on my skin. I also had a very hard time trying to find my color, they were either to light or dark.

This foundation has been a favorite for quite sometime. It gives you a doll like facetune finish! It is on the heavy side do not fir everyday use but for special events and any day you need a long wearing foundation. Make sure your skin is moisturized because it clings to dry patches!

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?
