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.

I really appreciate that Kat Von D has such a great lighter shade range, but this formula just doesn't work for me. It's very full coverage (and does a great job) but my dry skin just cannot handle it. Even when I apply it after I use plenty of moisturizer and a moisturizing primer I end up with dry patches all over my skin after wearing this foundation. I would recommend that those with dry or sensitive skin test before buying. The good news is that it does a fantastic job at covering. It looks absolutely beautiful on.

I suffer from acne and this foundation has really helped cover it. I felt so much better when I had this on. The only down side is that is oxidized when I would wear it

Although it took me a while to figure out how to apply this product without it being TOO CAKEY, I have to say I absolutely love it. As far as application tips: a little goes a long way, and it applies very good via wet beauty blender. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the coverage of this KVD product, and for someone with acne-prone skin, this foundation is a god-send when I have bad days. Stays on super well especially with the lock-it finishing powder! Would definitely recommend to anyone who has facial discoloring and problem areas.

this foundation is the definition of full coverage and has a matte finish although it lives up to the full coverage name it can be a little to thick so for me when i use it i do mix it with the makeup forever ultra HD foundation to make it less thick

Absolutely love this foundation! I have a lot of acne scars from over the years and they are very hard to cover up without my face looking caked on. This foundation covers so well without being greasy, it's long-wearing, and matches my skin perfectly. I have to say, this foundation is the BEST EVER!! If you are looking for a full coverage foundation, then this is for you! If you like a smooth flawless face, then I highly recommend this foundation! It covers very well and last all day. If you struggle with any imperfection you are always trying to cover up, this foundation will do the trick...trust me!!

this foundation is way too thick, it it wet and tacky but finishes into a matte. it feels very heavy on the face, i will never buy this again. it does not last long either and the coverage wears off throughout the day

The coverage of this foundation is impeccable. I love it, I use it nearly everyday. I also love how long it lasts. I've had the same bottle for about a year now & it hasn't gone bad, and I still have half of it. I use a generous amount on a daily basis. I only give it a B because the price is kind of up there in the 30 dollar range, which isn't necessarily affordable. However, with how long it lasts, it might be worth it. Another thing that holds my review to a B instead of an A is that if you don't properly moisturize your face regularly, it will stick to the dry patches of your face and make it flaky. All in all, I'm obsessed with this foundation & will continue to keep purchasing and using it.

Talk about COVER-AGE. It literally does conceal your real age! Lol. It provides a flawless finish to the face - redness, breakouts, tattoos, etc. It covers anything and everything. It's a full coverage foundation! I usually wear this foundation when I'm attending an event, but you can wear it on a daily basis, if you prefer. It stays put ALL day and does not settle into your wrinkles or fine lines. There's a pretty good range of shades, which I think is amazing. KVD nailed it with this foundation! #Lockit #Locked&Loaded

Stays ALL day long. If you have oily skin, I highly recommend. Do not recommend for those with dry skin. It is not the most natural looking just because of how full coverage it is. Apply this with a damp makeup sponge

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?
