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 have oily skin so for my skin type this was NOT the best foundation. It felt light but definitely looked like it had smeared in my t zone area. I tried several different primers with it but I just couldn’t love it.

I like this foundation but I don’t love it. It got me through a few party nights in Vegas and it also has a great matte finish! Will definitely keep using this whenever I need a foundation.

It made my skin a little too matte or a little chalky. I prefer a more natural finish. Good color match and it really did last all day.

This is soooooo cakey. It's the first KVD product I've ever tried and after hearing so much about her I was really excited to give it a try. My skin was moisturized and primed and this foundation still make it look cakey. It does have good coverage, as long as you're okay with also looking like a sponge. A blemish free sponge.

This foundation is super nice! It’s very full coverage so i wouldn’t get it if you don’t like think foundation. It’s not my favorite but it’s definitely so good and i would recommend it to people who like full coverage

I bought this foundation because I heard so much good stuff about it and the brand in general but I honestly hated it. It was very cakey and flakey, it was so thick and sticky as well. No matter what I did it looked horrible. I would not buy it again. It is definitely overrated.

I am very picky when it comes to foundation, so much so I only wear it a few times a month. This product really impressed me! It’s a lightweight formula that dries matte and it is very full coverage. I use one pump for my whole face and it is perfect. My skin is very dry and my cheeks are very rosy. It usually takes a lot to cover the redness but this worked perfectly. I used it along with the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème they are a gorgeous combo that lasts all day with minimum touch ups. I didn’t even use a setting powder and they stayed in place.

I’m conflicted. When you first apply this foundation it looks ridiculously good, like you have good skin naturally. Some foundations that have that effect almost “over do” that good skin effect and it looks too good to be true, so it’s obvious you’re wearing at least something on your skin but this actually looks like my skin. Not to mention because I have texture on my skin the thickness of this foundation helps smooth it out. The reason for the 3 stars is because towards the end of the day my skin look SO bad. This seeps into every single pore on my face, even place I didn’t even know I had big pores. Also it exaggerates fine lines I didn’t even know I had. When I say end of the day I mean within 5-6 hours, I expect my face to start melting off at least 8 hours later... if this foundation started looking as bad as it does towards 8+ hours I would’ve gave it at a higher rating.

The foundation has great coverage! The color was a touch too light for me, but I think that was my fault in making the choice. Even then, it blended well to my face. I would definitely recommend this foundation as well as Kat Von D to anyone looking!

I got this foundation a few months back from this app & I absolutely love it! I do have to mix this foundation with my born this way foundation because it isn’t in my color! This foundation has a very smooth texture & stays on all day! I definitely recommend it!

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?
