If you're looking for a heavy coverage foundation, this is the one! It'll cover spots and blemishes without the use of concealer and create a smooth, even, skin tone. It's definitely a bit heavy for me for everyday use, but will keep it for nights out and all day events such as weddings - cause it doesn't budge!

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!

Before you buy this product GET COLOURMATCHED - I'm so glad I did! Having dry skin, I was slightly intimidated by it however a damp beauty blender really makes it accessible for those with dry skin. Definitely not full coverage but I would recommend it to others if they're looking for a decent foundation that provides a medium coverage with a wide range of skin tones.

Love this Foundation but it very thick. It dries really quickly so you have to work fast once dispensed. Using a little moisturiser or facial spray while blending out works well if you have dry skin. Also as they don't sell it in many shops here in the UK, it's very difficult to colour match yourself.

This is a very high coverage foundation. I like to mix this foundation with something a bit more liquid in consistency as this is very thick and I don't like the way that feels on my skin. Once blended with a liquid foundation I love this. Don't know if it's worth the money to mix with another foundation though!

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!

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)

Great coverage, and I love that it's matte, however it can still appear a little bit cakey if you need to apply more to certain areas, and I personally found finding a proper match was hard, I would recommend it to others though! Some of the best coverage I've found! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

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.

This foundation is extremely high coverage! If you don't like the feeling of a thick consistency on your skin, I wouldn't recommend this as an every day foundation for you. But I cannot fault this foundation for any other reason other than it settles in any fine lines you may have, like most thick foundations. My skin didn't react negatively at all to this product.

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?
