Really like this product for a night out. Stays on really well and no problems blending with other brands/products. Not that lightweight, matte finish. I personally wouldn't use this as an everyday foundation because it's very full coverage, but perfect for a night on the town.

I'm really in the middle with this foundation, i have a love hate relationship with it. The lock it tattoo formula is much better, this one is very drying. but it does everything it claims to do so i guess that's good.

This is one of the most full coverage foundations I have used to date but it is not recommended for someone with oily skin. The face needs to be prepped properly for the foundation to be flawless and stay all day long

Absolutely love this product it has a matte finish and doesn't feel to drying in the skin, it is so long lasting and doesn't need a touch up. So easy to apply and blend out, would definitely buy this foundation again!

This foundation is really great if you're looking for a really really full coverage look. I do believe however, that it can look cakey quite quickly... my best advice would be less is more! If you start with less product and build it up gently, this product is wonderful! Long lasting as well!

Amazing coverage foundation however it does tend to oxidise on the skin quite a bit. It is difficult to blend out with a beauty blended but is amazing with a buffing brush. I currently use it to mix in with other foundations so they have a greater coverage.

Let's start on a positive note. This foundation has full coverage for sure, which is something the brand prides itself on. It "should" be full enough coverage to cover tattoos. I have seen people try, and to be honest it does not fully cover tattoos, you can still see colour through. In regards to the formula itself, in my own experience I find that it is a very powdery consistency, and applies very cakey. I did also notice that it looks very dry on the skin and tends to clump up or crease, no matter which primer i use. I have tried it with cream primers, silicone primers, and primer oil and nothing seems to help. The primer oil does not allow it to dry out but it does take away from the full coverage aspect of the foundation and slightly changes the colour. I am not sure that I would buy it again.

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?
