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.

- 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 found this foundation to be way too thick and heavy. I like the feeling of not having makeup on when I apply foundation. This gave me the exact opposite sensation. My face felt very stiff after applying this. I also felt like the foundation sunk into fine lines I never knew I had. This was just not the foundation for my skin.

One of my favorite foundations of all time! I have oily skin and I make sure I use a good oil free primer and my makeup will literally last all day. I usually apply it with a beauty blender as it is a bit thicker in consistency.

I really like this foundation. I am all about full coverage and this will definitely give you that. I have dry skin and really don't have any an issues with it. I do find that it is easy to use too much and that will leave you feeling heavy and cakey. But it gives you a great full coverage look with minimal product.

I'm not too picky with foundation or brands in general, as long as they work will with my skin tone. I own Kat Von D Lock it foundation and I love everything about it. It gives me that coverage I need and last long the whole day. The price is decent and I recommend this foundation for those who need a good coverage,

I do have a video attached but if you don't feel like watching that ill tell you my first impression on how it feels. I have normal to dry skin..you don't need much it dries very fast and you have to work fast at applying the product. I found it to be too drying for me. I Moisturized primed all that, i find that it does cater to LIGHT skin tones so that is a plus. It didn't cover everything i could still see my freckles and i did go over it with a powder foundation. I think this would be good for oily/combo skin.

Coming from someone who has struggled with acne, I can say this foundation is the holy grail if you have bad skin. It covers pretty much any imperfections and you only have to use a very small amount. I went to the beach and went swimming, I got out and was still getting compliments on how well my foundation looked. This is a must have!

One of my favorite foundations! Covers up my acne scars so well! Very little goes a long way. I like to use a beauty blender while applying. Using a beauty blender you get the most coverage and it doesn't make it look cakey at all. Only downside to this foundation is finding a shade. It either leans to yellow or to pink.

This foundation is very beautiful ! It's full coverage and build-able to your desirable amount ! It its very thick ! And is best applied with a beauty blender . Honestly don't even attempt a brush it will just not go on good . Make sure the beauty blender is damp . It is very matte . I recommend to blend it with a less thick foundation that has a dewy finish . Blending two matte foundations it's a bad idea .. But over all I love LOVE this !

I give the shade range 5 stars, but the actually product 4. It's a bit hard to work with, because it is so full coverage and matte. Mix it with the primer for a more dewy look, but that takes away some coverage. Overall, you'll get a perfect shade match, but if your skin is dry at all, it'll cling to dry patches.

This is one of my favorite foundations at first it was a bit of a disappointment this was when it first came out and I wasn't much of a fan of the formula then but now I have actually grown to like it I use it with the primer which is also good especially used together it definitely helps out the foundation before it would oxidize bad and I'd look horrible but I've found a few tricks around it and only thing I can't still nip is how it can get oily even in my T zone other than that it's all good :)

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?
