It gives you full coverage and it does not look dry or oiled. It covers blemishes and anything else up. I get so much use out of it and would buy it every time .

I absolutely love this foundation. It has become a staple product in my daily makeup routine.
Pros: Naturally covers blemishes, dark circles under the eyes, freckles, ect. Pretty much anything I need to hide it covers. It definitely stays on all day and I rarely have to reapply.
Cons: It can go on a little thick. My motto: A little goes a long way with this foundation. Also sometimes if I do apply too much, my face becomes oily by the end of the day.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this foundation.

Make sure to get a sample before buying. I used to hate it, but now that my skin changed, I actually like the way it looks on me. My sister who has combination skin with acne tried it and it just made her acne worst.. I have dry skin now and it looks perfect. It is full coverage and yes, it does feel a little heavy sometimes but a little goes a long way and it's honestly worth it. Stays on for a long time, so it's my go to foundation when I go to a party! 💞

I have generally good skin but was looking for a one step foundation (so I didn't have to use concealer) to cover my dark circles and acne dark spots. And I gotta say I found it!

You only need one pump to cover your whole face which I love. Definitely need to moisturize and prime your face first though because this goes on thick and needs the smooth surface to glide over. I use a stippling brush to apply it and it works great!

I normally use it cosmetics cc cream as my go to foundation but decided I wanted to try something with more coverage. I had seen people recommend Kat Von d for oily skin a few times so I decided to give it a try. I purchased the foundation and beauty blender combo and I fell in love! A little goes a long way with the foundation and it kept my skin matte and nice all night. I was very impressed by the foundation and plan on continuing to buy it.

Adore this foundation. Getting a color match was a little tough at first but I loved the coverage so much I bought two shades to mix. Primer helps a lot with this too for me otherwise it sometimes looks a little pink-orange at the end of the day if I use one of the pink shades. The neutral shade I have (Light 44) doesn't seem to have this issue. Still despite the learning curve here for me, it is one of my go to foundations. Covers everything! Even on lighter makeup days I sometimes reach for this and use it like concealer for any acne spots I have, it works better than anything else I own.

Amazing coverage! Covers all imperfections and is evenly distributed among the face. Sometimes you dont even need a concealer with this foundation. Long lasting as well.

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?
