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 just recently tried this as I have oily skin and was looking for something that wasn't going to slide around on my face. It's defiantly good for oily skin and it is very high coverage. The only reason I personally wouldn't buy it again is because it's a bit too thick for my liking. As I said it is FULL coverage so I do recommend to anyone that want's that full beat look. The packaging is really cute, and I love the way it comes out.

This foundation is amazing. Lasts all day with great coverage. I have really oily skin and all other foundations I have tried leave me looking really oily and shiney within a few hours, but this foundation does not! Packaging is beautiful and convienient with it's easy and smooth pump! This line also has a great shade range making it easy for you to pick a shade right for you! Definitely will be repurchasing when my current one runs out. Love this!

I'm in love with this foundation. For years I struggled to find a foundation which was full coverage but not too cakey and in my shade without oxidisation. I find that this foundation gives me the perfect balance of coverage and deweyness. Admittedly, I do mix it with a liquid illuminator as it is quite thick on its own and I don't feel that it looks great on my problematic skin without something mixed in to add that extra radiance and smoothness. 10/10 worth the price and I have been through 3 bottles in 2 years - it lasts so long!

I thought I liked this foundation at first...then I started to break out. I don't know what clogs your pores up more this foundation or any MAC product ever. I will say this: the coverage is amazing! Does not excuse for how it oxidizes lighter (for some reason) and how it's really hard to blend. If you want a foundation with the almost same amount of coverage get the Urban Decay one.

This foundation is definitely full coverage. I have the shade Light 42 Neutral. Sometimes In most lights it is a perfect match, which is impressive as I have a hard time matching even with the help of sephora employees. I add a bit of contouring to warm it up a tiny bit and it looks great. The only complaints I have are that if my skin isn't extremely well moisturized and exfoliated before applying, it can separate and flake in spots. Also I would prefer a more matte finish. After a few hours my natural oils start showing through.

I was very excited to use this product at first. I was searching for a foundation that would have a matte finish that would also have full coverage. I have combination skin. Normal girl with an oily t-zone. I couldn't wait to finally get home and use this foundation when I got my hands on it. However I was very disappointed. It was difficult to blend, didn't have a great coverage and it oxidized very quickly leaving me with a more orange tone. It also began to get very oily during the day even with the porefessional primer, setting powder and the UD all nighter setting spray. Would not recommend

Review for: Medium 53 Neutral more...
This foundation is FULL coverage, it makes your skin look so even! Unfortunately, it's a very thick, moussy consistency that tends to stick to dry patches. I reccomend using a hydrating primer/moisturiser underneath to give it some slip and help blend it out, it doesn't move once it's dry. The "Medium 53 Neutral" colour is EXTREMELY yellow, make sure you get a good colour match!

Awesome foundation, loved it.Important things to note:It is a high-coverage concealer. More than one pump is sometimes too much.It has a matte finish, and is extremely long wearing, so it stays matte.A lot of the times, especially with certain setting powders, I could feel the foundation on my face throughout the day. However, with her setting powder (which is very lightweight), the foundation felt weightless.The foundation oxidizes differently depending on what setting spray you use, not sure why this is, maybe it's just me.

Review for: 56 Medium-Neutral Undertone more...
Let me start off by saying that KVD line never disappoints me! The formulas, colors, pigmentation is all on key. This foundation is a pretty full coverage foundation, just what I like for the nights im out, or whenever I'm wearing a full glam look. It goes on flawlessly and literally leaves you looking airbrushed. Unfortunately, this started to crease literally everywhere on me. It started to separate around my nose and become patchy. I have oily skin, but thought at least the mattifying aspect of this foundation would've helped!

This foundation was not for me. I bought this from Sephora and it was one of my color iq results, so I decided to try it out. The woman at Sephora tested it out on my skin in-store and it looked fine there. But ounce I took it home and tried, it was wayyy to yellow and very cakey. If you like really full coverage and have not a lot of Pores then this is for you but if not, I would skip it and try a different foundation. For the punt that you get and the price, I would say it's worth it but other then that I would pass.

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?
