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’ve had problem skin my whole life (aka blemishes, dark spots/sun damage, acne scars, uneven tone, large pores and black heads). Kat Von D outdid herself with this liquid foundation (I expect nothing less from a tattoo artist)! After priming I use a small amount and blend to get perfect looking skin. I’m not a fan of liquid foundations being that they feel so much heavier than a powder, but let’s face it, sometimes your skin needs something more powerful. So put your best face forward and splurge on this product!

This is my go to every day foundation!!! It is very full coverage when applies with a brush but it can be sheered out with a beauty blender. It's the only foundation that hasn't transferred onto my boyfriend's clothing and stays pretty matte all Day. My skin starts out dry but is extremely oily by the end of the day but this looks great all hours of the day anyway!

This is really a great foundation. It has an insane amount of coverage. The shade range is amazing too. I only owned this for a short amount of time and ended up giving it away because it was too drying on my face. It leaves you with a matte finish and for dry skin people like me, it will just dry you out even more. This is the only reason I gave it four stars.

This is just one of those foundations I always tend to go back too. I have dry/combo skin, and I have found that using it with my beauty blender makes the application flawless. It lasts all throughout my 8 hour work day without separating and melting off my face. I kinda wish she would come out with a more dewy/luminous finish foundation too! Just to switch it up.

FULLLLLLLLL COVERAGE coming through!! Yes it's definitely very full coverage ladies, which means what?? It's thick in consistency and a little goes a long way. Use a minimal amount for the entire face and you won't feel the least bit cakey. The price point isn't that bad for a high end product. It's overall a great product if you are a full coverage freak like me :)

This foundation covers EVERYTHING and lasts all day! It is worth the cost because a little goes a long way so it does last a long time. I switch between this and Revlon Colorstay for work because in an office I don't really need to have perfect makeup, however when I'm going out OR if I have some breakouts then I go to my trusty KVD Lock It to cover everything.

This foundation is very thick, it could easily look cakey. I found it hard to apply and blend in with the beauty blender. It is full coverage and it found it hard to find a shade that matched me. I noticed that it would cling to my dry patches and it would rub off if there was oil Being produced on my face (even though I would set it with powder and setting spray)

So amazing! Lasted me about a year. I love the coverage! I would definitely say it is a heavy coverage. What i love about this is that it works so well! I even have dry skin and it didn't do what most foundations do on my dry skin, which is make everything more noticable. Longevity for this foundation, for me personally, was about 8+ hours. One on my absolute favorites.

Awesome foundation! This is my absolute favorite foundation! It lasts all day even in humidity. It's full coverage but doesn't look like your wearing full coverage foundation. Best of all, it didn't make me breakout! It is pretty expensive for foundation though so I save it for days when I have an event to go to or don't want to have to touch up through out the day.

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?
