I currently use this foundation mixed with another brand of foundation. On its own, I find it is good and very full coverage. My only complaint is that even with oily skin, using it on it own, it is very heavy and breaks out my skin. Maybe for another skin type it would be great. Probably won't re purchase.

I bought this foundation a few months ago and I really love it. It's a great full-coverage foundation and not as heavy as you would think for that type of product. I work 12-hour shifts and this stuff stays put. There is an extensive variety of shades so make sure you match the right one. I got one that was a little too dark so it doesn't blend well into my neck, but otherwise it's great and I would definitely buy again.

This is a wonderful full coverage foundation. I love how creamy and light weight it sits on my face. it is build able and very blend able. I love going to Sephora for this. It is my go to for a great high end foundation. The quality is really worth the price. It only takes a little to get a full coverage look.

I like or this foundation enough. It reminds me a lot of the UD All Nighter Foundation and other foundations like that -- very thick and full coverage. This can make it hard to blend if you don't need this amount of coverage and clings to texture (dry skin). It seems like it would be a dream for normal to combo skin :)

I love this foundation! I used to only use drugstore foundation and it would sink down and slide everywhere on my face. But after switching to this foundation, I'll never switch back. It has amazing coverage and a little goes along way. It doesn't cling to any dry spots, it makes my oily spots feel matte and less oily. It's the best!!

I love this foundation! I have an oily t zone and this foundation keeps the oil down. I've use this foundation in extreme heat and in constant rain and it performed so well. This foundation is on the heavy side, it's very thick but that's what I need. I am a full coverage girl and my job requires it. I've seen a lot of reviews from people not liking the formula but you have to play around with it and you'll be glad you did.

I have oily skin and this matte foundation is my go to!!! The coverage is amazing!! This was designed to cover tattoos and it def covers my flaws. This product is so smooth, and easy to apply. The product is really long lasting, I will powder every few hours or so and that really increases the wear of this. The price for such an amazing foundation is actually pretty good at $35 compared to other name brand company's.

This foundation has the BEST coverage I have ever experienced. I instantly fell in love. Sadly, this foundation broke me out. I typically DO NOT have acne problems so I was deeply saddened when I realized this foundation was the cause. On the bright side, this foundation 100% covered the acne and it was hard to stop using it because of that. I would highly recommend this for anyone with oily skin. (Mine is dry) It covered my dry patches very well. I hope Kat Von D comes out with a full coverage foundation for dry skin in the future! I would definitely give it another try.

I absolutely love this foundation! It took me a while to figure out how to work it but when I figured it out i fell in love with it. It's perfect if you're looking for full coverage. I have a lot of freckles on my face and it helps minimize the appearance of them. I personally like to blend it with a primer for a less caky look. I have oily skin but this foundation works great with my skin type, last all day long and the product itself lasts a very long time! You get so much in the tube!

My skin type is oily/combination so it is very hard to find a foundation that keeps me looking matte. However, this foundation is absolutely amazing and one of my favorites. It keeps the skin matte and looking completely flawless all day long without going cakey. I've worn this for over 15 hours and it still held up amazing with little separation and barely any touch ups. The consistency is also very nice and not too thick.

What is the best way to apply? fingers? brush? beauty blender?

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?
