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 have my birthmark on my face, plus combination oily skin. This foundation gives the best coverage as well as to a full 24hr wear, even if you sweat definitely a must buy!

I have oily skin, so I need a foundation that stays and stays put, and this is it. It's thick and blendable. Full coveration completely. A little goes a long way with this stuff. If you use too much, you're going to have cake face, so sparingly is best, which is great. At $40 per bottle, I expect this to last, which it does. It stays all day, and you might need a touch up once (mostly during those hot and humid days). But if you have acne, dark stops, uneven skin, ANYTHING you need to cover up, this is the stuff for you

I love the coverage this foundation gives. Great matte finish when I set it with powder. Little bit heavy and difficult to build with a brush, recommend using a damp beauty blender!

This foundation has great coverage and I love the packaging. You don't get makeup every where when it's packed in a makeup bag. I'm giving it 3 stars because it feels like it doesn't hold up to the no transfer claims. I definitely don't see it as waterproof. I start looking really shiny. I've tried it with the KVD primer and I'm
A few hrs I look very dewy. This foundation might be better for normal to dryer skin. Someone who can moisturizer well before application but not worry about oil produced by the skin.

The absolute best foundation I've ever used! My friend talked me
Into going into sephora to look at makeup one day.. I always buy my makeup at the drugstore or Walmart.. And I've never really been satisfied with any foundation I've used. I also used Mary Kay foundation that I liked a lot better than the ones from Walmart.. But nothing compares to this Kat Von D foundation! It's so light and the lady at sephora matched my skin tone so perfectly to the right foundation color. Mind you it is pretty pricey! But you're paying for the quality, and it's definitely worth every dime! I would recommend this to anyone with dry oily skin. Also a little bit goes a long way!

Finally a foundation that's great for my oily skin! This is a thicker foundation and a little goes a long way! I prefer to use a brush to apply! The beauty blender leaves splotches is you don't move fast enough! That would be my only complaint is that it dries VERY fast! But the coverage is amazing and it lasts all day! The packaging is very cute! I would definitely buy this product again!

This is honestly the best foundation I have tried so far. I used to only use drug store foundations because of the price differences on drug store make up vs. high end. I can't believe I wanted so long to try the high end versions because they actually make a noticeable difference and its not always about the brand that makes a product cost more. This foundation is thick, but it is full coverage. If you have blemishes or acne on your face, this foundation will help you. It will feel uncomfortable if you pack a lot of it onto your face because of the thick formula, but depending on your skin, how much you put onto your face is up to you. Overall, worth the price.

I recently bought this foundation in 48 light and I completely love it! It looks lighter at first, but it oxidizes and blends perfectly with my skin tone. It offers full coverage as promised, I don't even need concealer when I wear this. I have worn it for 20 hours straight before and it does not disappoint! Beware, a little of this product goes a looong way, so make sure you apply a little at a time. I have combination/ acne prone skin and sometimes need to apply translucent powder when I'm in the sun too long because my skin begins to look oily, but that's not a problem for me. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for full coverage foundation.

i love this foundation so much! The price point is lower than most high end products, and it works great! It definitely needs to be applied with a beauty blender over a brush though. This is my go to foundation.

Definitely in my top 5 foundations! Lasts forever and has amazing coverage! Paired with the Kat von D primer I know my makeup isn't coming off! Definitely get your hands on this foundation or the duo if you can!

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?
