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.

This is literally the jesus of all foundations. I refuse to use any other type of foundation. Kat Von D's whole line is incredible. This foundation lasts a long time on my skin, even without using primer. Very smooth, good for sensitive skin, and great for people with an oily skin type as well. Love love love it. If I could give it 20 stars I would

I got this as a sample from sephora and it took some time getting used to. Normally I love matte foundations but was feeling adventurous when I asked to take this home. This is a full coverage, lightweight foundation, which I LOVE!! It does oxidize throughout the day though so be aware about that but other than that it feels nice on the skin and not too heavy!

This foundation in light 42 is the only one I've tried that matches my pale skin! For reference Mac's NW10 is too dark for me.
Price is pretty run of the mill for Sephora products but for me it's worth the price tag to get full coverage and have my face match my body! Thank you Kat Von D!!!

My holy grail perfect foundation. Lasts all day on my oily skin and keeps me pretty matte! It is slightly drying but my skin is crazy oily so it doesn't look cakey. I like using a pore filling primer then an illuminating primer in some areas, and my complexion looks amazing. The best and fullest coverage I've ever gotten, love it with a damp sponge.

Love this foundation! It has great coverage and hides my acne scars pretty well. I have oliy skin so its really hard for me to find a foundation that won't leave my skin looking oily by the end of the day. This works sooooo well and I totally recommend.

I am in love with this foundation. It is the closest match to my skin pigment I have ever found. The coverage lasts all day. Must use a beauty blender or good quality foundation buff brush to apply because it dries too quick and becomes cakes if applied with fingers. I doubt I will ever purchase another foundation. Love it and the primer too!

If you're looking for full coverage, this is definitely the one. It is so thick and cakey. It made my skin break out like crazy. For the price, invest in something else unless you want your skin to look like garbage. Not for everyday use at all.

I tried to love this. I tried combining it with moisturizer. I tried combining it with face oil. Either way it was way too thick and looked like I painted my face with house paint. There’s a fine line between full coverage and spackle and this is right on it.

Best full coverage foundation I own. Seriously, this covers all my imperfections and acne dark spots. Only things is that you have to be careful to only apply a thin layer because of how thick this is but once you get the hang of it it's amazing.

this foundation was one of the first high end foundations i ever purchased. covers almost anything as it claims but there are better foundations out there. i have oily skin so i don't think this one was for me. looks really cakey. my recommendation is if you have oily skin that a better and more affordable product is the l'oréal true match so good.

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?
