Personally, I was not a huge fan of this foundation. It was easy to apply the only thing that I had a problem with was how dry and caked up it made my face look I have natural skin so I can choose a foundation that has either a dewy finish or a matte finish. So that wasn't the problem for me. I believe that just some foundations may not work for some people. So like they say you can't knock it until you try it.  But On the other hand I love all of the other Kat Von D Products I have never had any issues with any other products from this brand.

Im absolutely in love with this foundation.....i literally am a sucker for full coverage foundation and this one just pulled me in. the moment i purchased it, i put it on the same day, i was a hot summer day and nothing is worse than sweating off foundation, this foundation was sooo full coverage that you couldn't even tell that i was sweating. it does rub off but other than that i have nothing bad to say about it i love it.

I'm in love with this foundation. I bought it the other day because I have heard good things about it and I was not disappointed! This is a very FULL coverage foundation. It lasted me through an insane workout. You need very little product for it cover. If you use too much it can look cakey. This is the first foundation that I have found in a shade that matches me so well. This is my new holy grail foundation. Worth the money!

I really like this foundation but only for the winter. It is very very thick and gives full coverage so you do not want to sweat wearing this or else it starts to look all weird. My only other thing is the fact that it kind of smells like paint, its not a horrible smell but its not a great smell either. I would recommend this to someone who isnt in the heat all the time or isnt very active.

This foundation is NOT for me. Having said that, I can see why others like it. It was heavy and cakey and patchy but for someone with very young oily skin who doesn't mind a heavy foundation, I can see the allure.

However I will say this, if you have mature skin, skip this one. I know your daughter and her friends love it but I promise it will sink into every line and highlight every imperfection. I can't tell you how many times I warned people with mature skin against this and they bought it anyway and ended up returning it days later.

This is currently my favorite foundation! This is on of those foundations that you have to apply in sections because it does tend to dry quickly. It has a slightly odd paint scent to it but it doesn't even bother me now because the quality of this foundation is so great. This product is truly full coverage without being cakey and I've gotten so many compliments of how smooth my skin looks when I where this. I'll definitely continue using this foundation!

Packaging is amazing, you really do get every single bit of foundation out of it. It is a FULL coverage foundation, so it is heavy, which is to be expected, but it applies so smoothly, and blends out so nicely. I find that toward the end of wearing it for 9 hours, the foundation begins to break down a little around my nose and forehead if I don't powder throughout the day. But thats not often, and not many people would be wearing their makeup for that long, and I don't have any other foundation that lasts that long, looking so good

I am incredibly pale and have a really hard time finding a foundation that matches my skin tone. This one is perfect for me in the winter months, and it mixes well with other foundations for the summer months. It is a pretty heavy foundation, so if you are looking for something light weight, this isn't it, but like I said, you can mix it with other foundations to get your perfect color or lighten up the consistency. Also, moisturizing or using a primer before hand can help. Covers up every blemish, and works great for pale people!

I really like this foundation for a serious matte full coverage look. It blended really well to my skin and blurred everything out without getting cakey. The trick is in the application, and you've got to keep in mind that a little goes a long way and blending out is your best friend, but I used my beauty blender to apply it and I really wasn't disappointed. I'm not a full coverage kinda gal, I used it to see how I felt about full coverage for sure though, and if what I need is full coverage, this is the one I would go for definitely.

LOVE this foundation. I am not a big fan of any full coverage foundation or thick products. This does not look thick at all when putting on for a night out or when I am out of town. It makes my skin look flawless without the makeup feel. I have gone to sleep in it and my face still looks amazing the next day. I have bought about two tubes/containers of it over the past two years. Also, if you don't like the thickness just take a small amount with a wet beauty blender and some beauty oil and it goes on very smooth and thin.

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?
