This foundation did not work for me, I’m sad to say :( . I do think if you don’t have super dry skin like I do this foundation will probably get the job done!! It’s very full coverage, and a little goes a long way!! My negative is that it fell off of certain parts of my face as well as I purchased the wrong color !! The price for what you get is fair kinda on the expensive side .... would recommend to anyone who has oily skin

So I bought this for my boss because I was teaching her about makeup, and felt like she would enjoy Kat von d brand because she has tattoos and matches the overall brand. I heard great things about the tattoo foundation, but I bought this for her instead because I didn't want to get the tattoo foundation for her and she think I was implying she needs to cover her tattoos. Well, next day she comes in and the foundation is sitting in her acne scars, looks cakey, and was making her itch. Granted, she probably didn't use a primer, but I looked bad and ended up recommending a foundation from a brand I trusted.

If you are wanting to hide freckles, blemishes, redness, or a murder this is definitely the foundation for you. I love this foundation when my skin is at it's best and hydrated, but when it is dry I cannot use this.

The cons to this foundation is that it is incredibly heavy feeling. It is unable to be mixed to make a custom shade because it is so thick. So, your skin has to match one of the shades to wear it. It sticks to dry patches, so your skin has to be very moisturized for it to look good.

The pros is that it will make your skin look flawless and babylike.

I know people love this foundation but I don't think it's as good as I was expecting. I bought it in hopes to replace my Estée Lauder double wear but so far I'm just not that impressed . It's definitely thick and the best way to apply it is by a sponge so that it blends more easily. However during the summer when I would sweat it just turned into a nightmare and I ended up just washing it all off to avoid further embarrassment .

The jury is still out on this one for me. I've only tried it recently and I don't think i've quite figured it out yet. I was looking for a more full-coverage foundation, and this was recommended to me. I have very dry skin so, after a few hours of wear, it felt tight on my skin. It never looked cakey or dry, so I stuck with it. But I think my issue was not using all KVD products together. I was using other makeup brand products for concealer, moisturizer, powder, etc. I think I need to invest in the KVD finishing powder and that should solve my issue. To be continued!

I have acne scarring and a lot of redness in my skin so I love this foundation. It has such high coverage and barely requires any product so the bottle lasts forever. I normally run out of foundation super quickly but I've had this bottle for many months and still have it. I only rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel like it can become cakey very quickly if you are not careful with it.

This a good foundation with a great color range. It's a full coverage foundation and will cover any scars or pimples you night have. This foundation leaves your skin with a matte finish I have used half of my bottle and will buy when it runs out. My only down side is the foundation is kinda drying and I have dry skin and found I have to spary to keep my skin from looking flaky and dryed out. Other then that this is a very good foundation and would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a good foundation.

I had to revisit this foundation becasue of a recommendation from a Sephora consultant. This foundation is extremely full coverage but you have sheer it out if need be, basically a little goes a long way. I love the finish is gives my skin. I suffer from hyperpigmenation and I used to use concealer and then foundation, but now I can completely skip that step with this product! AMAZZING coverage! If you like full coverage foundation this is the product for you.

My color was medium 53 i like the foundation but not totally in love with it i wish it was less thick because it is really hard to blend out and because of that you ended up putting a whole lot on your face which would eventually make it cakey and not cute but i had already gotten it and its expensive so what i did is i mixed it with a face moisterizer to help it blend better the coverege would go down to a medium but u were always able to add on some more to make it full coverage also it was the first high end foundation i had ever gotten but still found it difficult to manage

I know some people love this product, but here's why I was slightly disappointed: for my job, I need a full coverage foundation. This foundation is EXACTLY that, but when I tried it, it was heavy and settled into my pores and lines. It sort of made me look older than I am because of the way it settled on my skin, and I desperately wanted to like it but it didn't work on my skin at all. That being said, I know several girls who love this foundation and would swear by it. So, I'd recommend trying a sample. It all depends on your skin and what kind of foundation you're looking for.

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?
