would recommed for people who have oily or normal skin types but if you have dry skin i wouldnt bother because it cakes up on the face aswell as clings to dry patches and always go a shade or two lighter than what you normally would because this does oxidize 3/4 shades darker which would be orange if you arent pale

I love the range of shades as i am really pale but its a massive no no for dry skin. It almost looks cracked and seperated very soon after applying. Emphises my dry skin and looks a absolute mess! My mum dont know much about make up and even she picked up on all these negs. Think it would work better for oily skin!

I love this product! The coverage is amazing, it literally covers every flaw you have. The only down fall on this product is that, if you use to much on the product it can become very clumpy and sticky throughout the day, I recommend if using this use as little product as possibly but I would by this product again.

pimples? scars? dark circles? THIS foundation will solve all of those issues!! whenever i wear this, i never have to wear concealer. it's matte so you need to work quick with it! i mix it with a little bit of serum so it isn't so dry and is easier to buff in :) i've recommended it to my mum as well and she LOVES it

When it says full coverage, it means full coverage. You only need a tiny amount as a little goes a long way. Unfortunately this foundation is not good for anyone with dry skin, as it clings on to all your dry patches making them really visible. A shame because it's a really good shade range for those with pale skin.

This foundation is definitely not an everyday foundation to wear. If you have dry skin, don't even think about buying it. It's so matte and such a full coverage that it feels like you are wearing a mask. I couldn't find an exact skin tone match either. The only thing it will do is hide every flaw on your skin. So maybe it's better as a spot concealer. Would not recommend.

A M A Z I N G coverage, best applied with a damp beauty blender, brushes seem to take much more effort to work the product into the skin and can leave streaks. Pairs really well with more silicone based primers.

Great for oily or combo skin, lasts all day with minimum touch ups, fantastic shade selection, reasonably priced.

(Also bonus points for being cruelty free)

This foundation is by far my favourite. My skin tends to get a bit oily and this foundation is literally the only one that doesn't make me look like my face is melting off. I will stress this though, you need a good primer. Using it with a good primer and blending it well will give you a nice and flawless look.

THE BEST foundation I have ever used. KVD is one of my favourite people and when she brought out foundations I knew she wouldn't disappoint. Hard to find shades pale enough for my white skin and this is perfect!
The packaging is beautiful and the actual foundation applies so well and hardly budges! Will buy more!

Best foundation for full coverage! I love this for days when I'm out for most of the day and need my make up to stay in place. I have very oily skin and this works wonders, after applying powder this is ideal! It's very easy to blend, I tend to use a beauty blender or brush. This will always be my no1 foundation!

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?
