Love this stuff! I apply with a beauty blender and it looks flawless and covers everything. Only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is I’m super busy and when I don’t use setting powder there’s a lot of transfer. If I accidentally touch my face my fingers will have makeup on them and it will get all over everything.
Use setting powder and you’ll be fine!

This is one of my favourite foundations. It last you the whole day. And I do not see the need to colour correct before. This also works really well with oily skin. I have very, very, very oily skin and my face really does show the oil through this. With this product, a little goes a very long way. Definitely something I would recommend to others.

Being a really pale woman can make finding a shade light enough nearly impossible... Finally found this amazing product and can’t believe how amazing the colour match is for my skin! The coverage is unreal, lasts all day with absolutely no flaking! If I had to only use one product a day this would be it! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Really good for those wanting suuuuper coverage. I would have liked it better back when I had bad skin, but now that it's clearer I find it too much. The product is quite thick, and it felt like it set really dry to me. I tried mixing it with other foundations/products but still too drying and thick for my liking. Shade range is really good though.

If you're blessed with nice, soft, poreless and hydrated skin and you like the matte look, then this or Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup will work well. I found choosing the correct shade very difficult as I'm in the UK and have no stockist near me, but I would recommend going 1 or 2 shades darker than you think you'll be.

I would say this foundation would be great for someone that doesn't have dry skin and wants a heavier coverage. I unfortunately have dry skin so this foundation isn't one of my favourites it tends to stick to the dry patches and ends just looking cakey. When buying this I would definitely buy the lock it primer as well they work great together!

Finally! A foundation pale enough for my face! Usually I struggle finding a foundation that is pale enough without a strange yellow undertone to it. This one is perfect! It's really lightweight on the skin with a nice finish and I would definitely buy it again. My only downfall is the price but you are paying for the name as well as the formula.

This foundation is impressive. It really does cover everything, especially acne prone skin and scarring. The shade range is also huge, and the formula is suitable for vegans. I did find that it can be drying, so if you have dry skin, I recommend using a heavy duty moisturiser before hand to prevent it from becoming too dry throughout the day.

This is definitely a foundation that YouTube made me buy. I'm very pale skinned so was excited to try this, however was disappointed. It feels very heavy on the face and after a few hours sets into fine lines and i also found it got quite smeary and came off around my nose and chin area. Only plus side for me is that the colour matches my face

Review for: 62 Medium - Warm Undertone more...
Oh my God this foundation is a Gem, seriously i've never tested any foundation that has a coverage as full as this one gives me, it has a matte finish, as i said is it the fullest coverage ever. It's very long lasting. I use it for big events and more importantly for photoshoot, videoshoot and live shows the foundation keeps me on fleek under the spot lights.

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?
