A high-pigment foundation for full coverage with a long-lasting, beautiful finish. Kat created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage, without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed to match a broad range of skintones with bold coverage the proprietary pigments can even effectively cover tattoos. The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance. Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish and the added emollients provide a velvety texture for perfectly smooth, hydrated skin.

It is formulated Without:

- Parabens

- Synthetic Fragrances

This foundation has been formulated to work synergistically with Kat's Rehab Priming Elixir, Tattoo Concealer, and Lock 'N Load Setting Mist.

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!

BEST FOUNDATION EVER OH MY GOD. The coverage is amazing!!! I have never seen a foundation cover all my imperfections so well! I love that it's matte finish so it's great for oily skin girls like myself. It's full coverage and a little goes a long way just because it is so good. I find that it's easy to blend I would def use it with a brush instead of a beauty blender. I would also prime first just because it is on the thicker side and you want to have that "protective barrier" between your face and the foundation. I've gone clubbing, dancing, had sex and everything and still look pretty damn good after everything.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
This foundation is SUPER full coverage. It literally doesn’t let any hyper pigmentation peak through! The only downside is that it’s very drying. I know it’s meant to be matte, but it’s even more drying than some other matte foundations out there. It’s also a very thick formula and can be hard to blend if you don’t work fast enough. I find it also can be hard to blend products over this foundation (the foundation can become a bit patchy). I LOVE that there is a shade pale enough for me! Lots of foundation companies don’t have my shade, but this company has a shade that is almost too light for me!

You know what's way cuter than a perfect complexion (not that this foundation will give you that anyway, it literally magnifies every amount of texture you might have on your skin)? Children who are disease free! Kat Von D just publicly announced that she will not be vaccinating her child, using her fame and large audience to promote KILLING CHILDREN. I will no longer be giving this moron any more of my money.

I like this foundation. It spreads and blends easily. I do find that it is highly pigmented. Sephora didn't correctly color match me so it's a little dark on me but I'm still able to use less product and blend it out to where it doesn't look too dark and I still have coverage. I love the bottle design that lets you see how much you have left. I don't think this foundation meets my hopes and dreams for lasting on my face ALL day in the heat and humidity of where I live, but it still lasts longer than other foundations I've tried.

Shade "Light 48 Neutral"
Another phenomenal #kvd product! My holy grail in the Summer time with our super muggy weather and modeling outdoors! Bullet proof and flawless coverage. Tip: for extra dry skin like mine, add a couple drops of argan oil or FX oil drops to it( I apply from the back of my hand) ... It helps it blend seamlessly and not "set" too fast 💛

This is a great foundation if you're someone who needs a full coverage foundation. This will cover any imperfections you need to cover. This is also a very matte foundation so if you're into extremely matte foundations with full coverage than you'll love this. If you aren't into full coverage then this foundation will most likely be too heavy. It's a good product but can tend to look cakey if you have dry skin so I would highly recommend using a moisturizer before using this foundation. However if you're oily then you will love this

This foundation is shockingly amazing! I have dry skin and was hesitant buying it for this reason, and honestly it still works amazing!! It is very heavy so I do tend to sheer it out because I just wanted the full coverage but I am not a fan of the feel of full coverage foundation. For such a thick consistency it is one of the best foundations for my skin! As long as I keep my skin moisturized and use a good primer it doesn't get cakey or look flakey on my dry patches! My only complaint is that it is so heavy I am afraid it will cause break outs but I've been wearing it for weeks now with no issue!

This foundation is super long wearing and also very full coverage. I have two big issues with this foundation, and they are the reasons I no longer wear this. The first is that the range of shades leaves something to be desired. I am very cool toned fair, and even the supposed cool tones run very warm. The second issue I have with this foundation is the smell. It is so overwhelmingly gross that I would dread putting this on.

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?
