This is by far my most full coverage foundation ever. I mean to be honest it's really pigmented and high coverage so if your face needs a lot of covering this product is for you. When it comes to this, a little goes a long way. The downside of this is that it feels really heavy on the face.

Review for: Light 45 Neutral more...
I was very excited when KvD Beauty came to the UK. The packaging is to die for, and it quickly became one of the most loved brand upon release. I needed a new foundation as my dry skin was now in good condition so all my dewy ones were starting to slide off during the warmer weather. I wasn't overly excited about the Estee Lauder Double Wear as I felt the formula had changed so I went to KvD since the hype of the products seemed so good. I was colour matched to Light 45 Neutral as I'm fair but with yellow undertones. As soon I tried the foundation it was different to any other I've tried- it's a very thick texture and you don't need a lot. In fact I was worried how my skin might breakout or feel caked given how thick it actually is, but it doesn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on at all. It blends seamlessly but also very quickly so I have to be fast with my damp beauty blender. I prefer applying it with a damp sponge than a brush as it does blend better but also more flawlessly in my opinion. It's matte about being seriously matte to highlight your lines or dry patches. It really does give a smooth flawless look and I was surprised over the fact that I hadn't given matte foundation a chance sooner! All I can say to you is that they call it "Lock-It" for a reason. I wore this foundation when giving birth to my daughter, and it didn't budge. It still looked amazing after 5 hours of screaming crying sweating sleeping, to push out my little one. I am more than impressed. If this isn't a long wearing foundation, then cement is your next choic.

Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
This foundation is really really full coverage. I find that it works better with a sponge than a brush. With a kabuki brush it can look a bit caked on. I would recommend a pore filling primer as a base, because it’s so thick and full coverage that it has a tendency to cake up over my more rough areas.

I had massively high hopes for this foundation! I was so disappointed when i got it home. I tried it a few times with primers without with setting sprays without and every single time this product separated on my nose it just went all weird. This formula didn't suit my skin at all! Totally disappointed

Review for: Light 41 Neutral more...
This foundation is the worst foundation I have ever tried, it doesn't last more than 3 hours on my skin before it starts to break down and look flaky and dry. I tried mixing facial oils in with it to make it more oily but nothing helped, I wouldn't recommend to anyone and definitely will not repurchase.

Favorite foundation of all time, anything this lady creates is 10/10. Created to cover tattoos so this will cover everything on you're face. Dries matte and doesn't budge after wearing for the day. I have oily to combination skin and it doesn't affect the performance of this foundation. Highly recommend

Review for: Light 43 Warm more...
I liked it but I didn't buy it again because it was too thick for what I needed. It was very high coverage. This was very hard to blend into the skin and pores. No matter how much you blended it always seemed to sit on top of the skin. I did like that there were neutral, warm and cool undertones.

This is one of my favourite foundations. It gives great coverage and lasts all day without getting dry or gunky. Some of the other foundations I have used have dried out my skin, but this felt great. I have on occasion used it to cover my tattoos too and it works! Will definitely be buying this again.

I bought this because I heard it was amazing, it literally covers tattoos! But it was not great for my skin, it caused me to break out quite badly. With this as much as it is amazing and sits great and lasts for ages, the formula did not work well for my skin. The colour match was perfect for me though.

just one of the upsides of the new kat von d foundation is that you can choose from a wide selection of colours that might match your skin tone. it has quite a matte finish and i speak from peronal experience, it is long lasting. even though i loved the idea of a lock it foundation that lasts long i would not buy it again only because of its price.

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?
