- 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.

Tried this foundation because a lot of youtueb gurus suggested it and i, like always, fell for the hype! I am always looking at stuff to try out especially foundations. I always go for the more medium to full coverage foundations. I don't have major problems on my skin except for some dry patches here and there and some redness. I tried this foundation one day at my job and all i can say is CAKEFACE! It is not forgiving to dry patches, on my small lines, and also i had it on my neckline! It transfers to clothes! I tried it with a brush, my fingers and with a sponge, but i didn't like the finish of this foundation. Lightest color made me look like i had an oompa-loompa mask on. I gladly returned it and got my other holy grail--Lancome Teint Idole 24hr foundation. I rather pay a fwe more extra bucks for my lancome than look like a snooki.

Such amazing full coverage with a small amount of product. Blends nicely and easily with a brush or beauty blender. Medium weight but does not make you oily at all. Would recommend unless you have dry skin, this product may make you dry!

This is one of the first foundations I thought about buying a second bottle of before I ran out,toward the end I had some issues with it slipping around,but id had it for 7 months ish so it could have been a season thing,or the age of the actual product. as a natural redhead,i IMMENSELY appreciate a shade as light as light 42 in this range. its as close to "vaguely off-white but still cool toned" as ill ever get in a foundation,im convinced-and its just what I need. i might get another bottle just to mix in with other foundations that are just lacking coverage,or are a little dark. I do find this NEEDS a damp beauty blender to apply or its CAKE FACE FOR DAYS,so be careful applying it,a little goes almost TOO far,but the coverage is impeccable,and it stays on not needing to be set,primer,or setting spray,at least on my(combination) skin.

I really loved this full coverage foundation! For me personally I just wear it on special occasions due to the coverage.  It really does cover a lot and it has a matte finish.

I was slightly hesitant about this foundation because I thought it would be cakey. It is beautiful and amazing for oily skin!! Works amazing with the lock it powder and setting spray. Has a very high coverage without looking unnatural!

If you're pale the KVD foundation is amazing, it's good for combination, but more for dry skin. It's gives a slight matte finish, close to full coverage but it's a slightly thick formula but I highly recommend it!

This foundation has so much hype around it that i don't really understand. my only issue is how oxidized so much. make sure you get a sample to test at home before buying!

If you have oily skin this is a great matte foundation! Just like the name it locks in. You do have to move fast with this foundation or it will dry and hard to blend. Def a repurchase.

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?
