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:

- Synthetic Fragrances

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

My all time favorite foundation. Full coverage and the skin tone matches perfectly. Its got a slight smell to it but nothing too unbearable. Will continue to buy for a long time.

I have tried to wear this foundation so many times but it just doesn't sit right with me. I have dry to combination skin and I got it for those hot Texas days but I find that it slips and breaks up on me. I have tried several primers and have set it with different powders as well but it just turns me into this greasy ball, and that is something that I am not used to experiencing with my skin! I'm not sure if this has happened with anyone else and in the reviews I have read it usually makes people skin look dry. I have not given up on the foundation and am going to pick up the LockIt primer to see if this helps my greasy mess 😁

I don't have many bad things to say about this foundation. I'm about an nc20 and light45 was a great match. I used my hard candy hydra primer primer lotion and I i think that is what's made this foundation look very dewy and natural, while still being full coverage. This combination of products was great and the foundation lasted all day. I applied it with my real techniques sponge, as per usual, and it looked beautiful! I think looked so good by the end of the day that I didn't want to take it off! However, there was a bit of creasing on my chin and in my smile lines, but everything creases there. I do recommend this foundation, especially those with skin on the more oily side because it is a very matte foundaiton.

I love this foundation so much. The photo attached is half of my face bare, the other half with one thin layer of the foundation. I use the lightest shade they have (light 42 neutral) as I have pink undertones. Make sure when purchasing this to test it on your chest as every color comes in a cool, neutral, and warm undertone. If you don't match the right undertone it won't look right. I have combination skin and with a bit of powder this stuff stays all day without getting oily. It's amazing.

I love it! Very full coverage, and is a thick, creamy consistency, but smooths on so easily. On days when I want less coverage I mix it with a day of moisturiser. Nothing bad to say about this foundation.

This stuff is amazing!! It seriously stays put without primer or setting spray. I love it! I wish they had a larger range of shades but if your skin tone matches this buy it 100%

I wanted to love this product, but it didn't work for my skin. My face is very dry and flaky, and this seemed to make the issue more noticeable and pronounced. I feel like this would be exceptional for oily skin, and the coverage truly is fantastic, it just didn't work for me sadly.

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?
