- Synthetic Fragrances

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

Best use for a special night out. I have found that for everyday use it can lead to breaking out your skin. Color selection is great even the palest of the pale have options.

I have oily skin, so when I did my research on this product I was excited for the coverage! Now it might be because I would prime my face with a mattifying primer & that could be why I resulted in dry patches. But I loved the coverage from this! I was really sad to have to return it but the dry patches on my forehead( which is my oiliest area) and then when I would wear my sunglasses I would no longer have makeup in that area. Anyways long story short- I didn't have a good experience with this product but a greater part of me wants to try it again but with a different primer.

Love the coverage! It's really matte & just awesome!!! I love the fact that it is not "Cakey", it might be a bit heavy but not to much! It is so easy to apply either with a brush or blender. I would totally recommend this product!

Coverage is excellent on this I have scars on my face and this helps hide them very well. But on the flip side is very cakey looking. But the bottle of last a very long time.

So this is my all time favorite foundation i swear.

I live in arizona and during the summer i can never get a foundation to stay on my face because of how hot and sweaty my face gets. By the end of the day all my other foundations i tried look streaky. But i apply this with a beauty blender and leaves a flawless look. Even for being a full coverage foundation i feel like i have nothing on my face. It will literally last me all day looking nice and matte without melting off my face from the heat. I've recommended this foundation to so many people because of how amazing it is.

One of the best high coverage foundations for me! I love the application and the packaging it comes in as well! The only downfall is the texture, for some, it may feel Cakey!

I love love love this foundation. It is very full coverage so a little goes a long way (which will save you money). There are people who will say it's cakey but it's only cakey if you use too much. I think most skin types can use this, although it is oil free, it works well on dry skin. It has a mostly matte finish. Kat Von D actually formulated this to be used with her primer so if you're able to get that also, I suggest that you do. Overall, it is just a great foundation that I highly recommend.

This product was just okay to me. The coverage to me was a high medium at best. I have about 10 plus years of acne scarring and as I've come into my mid 20s my pores around my cheeks have enlarged. This foundation settled into my pores and never really set to the matte finished that was promised by its description. It left me greasy and unnatural looking like I had on a mask and transfered pretty badly whenever I'd accidently touch my face. I wanted to like this but even when adding powder this was just too much and I ended up returning it to the Sephora I purchased it at.

This foundation is ok. It's definitely a full coverage foundation with pretty good staying power. My biggest issue is that no matter how much or how little I put on it would get really cakey around every little crease and age me. I tried it with several different primers and had the same result. It doesn't blend very well and it feels filmy on, which is pretty standard for the type of foundation. Unlike most foundations of this type I didn't have any issues with my skin breaking out or getting dry. It's not the best foundation for me, but I would recommend it if a friend were looking for this type of coverage.

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?
