Seriously love this foundation. I feel that I have tried everything. I can honestly say that this is the best. Easily my HG. For this for a wedding I was in. The temperature was at least 105 and the wedding was outside. My Foundation lasted through profuse sweating not to mention all the rest of my makeup because my base was so solid. This Foundation does what it says it will do and more. Go to Sephora now and find your shade you will not be upset with spending the measly 38 bucks

At first I didn't like it because it is so thick and definitely doesn't work the best with dry skin, BUT I have found amazing combinations that makes this one of my favorite foundations ever. It has full full coverage and if I mix it with an oil for hydration or another foundation, for example tarte rainforest of the sea foundation, it really thins out the formula and makes it look so beautiful on my skin! I would definitely repurchase. Also a little tip is it goes on kinda weird with a beauty blender for me so I have found if I put it on with a brush then blend it out with a beauty blender after it works so much better!

This foundation lasted me FOREVER. A little bit of this goes a super long way. Two pumps for a full coverage face! That's insane! In the winter months, this would get a little dry and patchy on my skin but if you added an extra moisturizer I think you would be just fine. I loved the coverage, and the finish of this foundation. I did not care for the way this foundation smelled. Luckily, after it's applied and dried down, it doesn't smell anymore. I also believe I needed a different shade. My skin is more yellow toned than I originally believed. If I purchase again, I will get a more yellow based color.

I love kvd products like her lip liners and liquid lippies and i thought i'd like this too bc of her other products bt this was one of the worst foundations for me personally. I was looking for a full coverage one and since i knew this one was i decided to give it a try. Im really oily and the little that i put on, my laughing lines creased so badly! U could see the buildup, after this i still continued to buy from her and i fell in love with the white lock it concealer (such a great idea for concealer, no one has ever thought of a white concealer) bt the foundation was just a no for me sadly.

I see lots of mixed reviews with this product before and I can just say personally with my skin it is a perfect match it all depends on how you apply the make up don't use a beauty blender use a brush like a stippling brush that I got from Sephora and it works really well to apply so it's not too much on your face it's not too cakey it's the perfect Matte foundation it's not like you have inches of make up on and it works very well you just need to be careful of how you apply at

This foundation is great for full coverage! It definitely covers everything and lasts all day long. I wouldn't use this daily because it's so full coverage and I usually don't need very much coverage. But I love to use it on my "bad skin days" or for events where I will be photographed a lot because it photographs beautifully! It applies and blends beautifully as well! It is a little pricey but it's worth it because a little goes a long way!

This foundation is super full coverage and once it sets it doesn't budge. I think it's better for oily skin because it can be quite drying, but I've made it work for my dry skin by moisturizing and hydrating it as much as I can and using a primer. You have to work FAST and in small sections if you want even coverage because it sets very fast and once that happens there's no fixing or blending out a patchy area. It also doesn't irritate or break me out, which is super rare for me. So while it has a few downsides, it really is the most full coverage foundation I've tried and it works very well.

with more expensive foundations like this one, i always like to get samples of it from sephora or ulta before i dedicate my money to buying it. I got the sample, i can't remember the shade, but it was very drying. I have combo to oily skin and it make my oily spots look dry. It lasted a long time on my skin, which is definitely a good thing but to the extend that it dried my face out, i didnt like it.

maybe i just had a bad batch because that happens sometimes with makeup, but i definitely dont see myself buying it any time in the future. if you try it out and like it then hey, go you lol but as of right now i wouldnt recommend buying it.

It's hard for me to find foundations that cover all of my imperfections and last all day. This foundation is an absolute miracle!! It covers my acne and dark spots, making my skin look flawless. I've used this product for about 4 months now and keep buying more. My color is #46 and it fits my skin tone so well. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good coverage 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?
