This is my new go-to foundation! I bought it at the counter in Liverpool, after getting shade matched by a very helpful MUA, and tried it as soon as I got home. It is very easy to apply, stays matte and lasts the entire day. It doesn't oxidise and works well with creams and powders. As a very pale person, i love that there is such a massive shade range available. This is fantastic for people with darker and paler skin tones, as those shades aren't normally available in stores. I especially love using this Foundation with the

This is my go to foundation on a daily basis. It gives great coverage and lasts on my normal/ dry skin all day long. You can use a smaller amount for a day time look and still receive good coverage or a larger amount for an evening occasion and receive a flawless coverage and finish. The shade selection is also great for pale skin like myself and was able to find my PERFECT shade!

Love this foundation. This is exactly what it says on the bottle- matte, full coverage and stays all day. Although the foundation is very thick it doesn't look caked on the skin and gives a flawless finish.

Update - I recently retried this product and I have to say I love it all over again.

This a great foundation. One the best full coverage products out there. However, I find that it task time learn how to work with this. You only need a small amount to get great coverage and I found that in the beginning, I was a little heavy-handed and it takes some getting use to. Great for parties, last forever. I highly recommend.

This is currently my go to foundation for long days. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars, is because I have to wear a pore filling primer or my pores look huge, and it also transfers off my nose and chin by the end of the day..

I work 10 hour days and it does mostly last (other than the slight rub off on my nose and chin) but it can start to break up a bit and look a little messy.

I have repurchased and will continue to do so until I find my holy grail.

This foundations is really great if you have scarring from acne. This gives you great coverage without looking cakey. It goes on dewy which makes your skin hydrated and dries matte. It is a little pricey but I would still buy it again. I bought this in the summer and my skin tone has lightened so I need to get a lighter shade to see how it stands up to through the winter months!

Foundation is the base to any makeup application! This Kat Von D foundation is full coverage and a matte to natural finish! For me personally I love this combination but the only pro alarm I have is in the UK it is not sold in any stores so I am unable to test out my shade and I have to guess off the internet. For a lot of people this would be very difficult as majority of the time the picture does not relate to the actual shade. For anyone with this problem I suggest googling swatches of any foundation to get a more accurate picture of the different shades!

I have this in two shades. It is definitely heavy coverage. But you can sheer it out using less product and applying with a damp Beauty Blender, which is how I usually use it. It does allow concealer to layer over it well and once it's set I don't find it moves a lot. I haven't had any problems with oxidization although I've heard others have

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?
