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.

Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
this was a good foundation! i have not repurchased and i probably will not due to the fact that i thought it felt a little too heavy for me and it was extremely full coverage. it’s also very expensive but the coverage (if you’re looking for full coverage) is amazing.

Smooths out my skin tone very well and very full coverage. A thicker formula, so go lightly. Definitely a buildable foundation. I would recommend it for oily skin because it’s so full coverage. Definitely would buy this again.

This has been a long staple in my theater arsenal as a very thick foundation that does the trick for concealing my blemishes onstage. I've had a lot of compliments about my skin while wearing this on my face, even onstage.

This is the best foundation I’ve ever used!! I can’t believe how much I LOVE Kat Von Ds line. It’s all vegan and that’s a big A+ for me! It really hides everything..

Review for: 53 Medium - Warm Undertone more...
This foundation is extremely heavy and uncomfortable on the face. As it claims to be full coverage, it sure meets the standards for someone in need of the most coverage they could get; perhaps one could get away without concealer.

I did not enjoy many things about this foundation, such as: smell, application, thick, etc. It was a very interesting smell...I've tried the lock it concealer and it did not smell anywhere similar to this. It is difficult to apply the foundation due to the thickness of the foundation. I love using beauty benders for all of my foundations and it was hard to use one this time around -- must use a brush. Additionally, people with dry skin should stay away from this foundation because the product will cling on to your dry patches. 

I would not repurchase!

Extremely thick formula. I used first when my acne was bad but once cleared, the formula was too thick for every day use. Great for full coverage but very sticky and thick to apply

I have a total love late relationship with this foundation. FULL coverage. Beautiful matte finish. Lasts forever because a little goes a long way. My only complaint is that it dries out my skin causing breakouts 😭

Is this a full coverage foundation that works with hyperpigmentation?

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?
