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 love love love a full coverage foundation, however, I got color matched wrong at the Sephora I frequent! So I ended up giving it too a friend who had more fair skin than I did. Would buy again in my shade, if I should trust the Sephora workers. Definitely think its a great price for how full coverage it is.

I like using that foundation. It’s full coverage but doesn’t look cakey on me. You can still get a somewhat natural looking makeup with it

It’s a very heavy foundation that doesn’t really have tattoo coverage. It feels thick on the skin with little payoff in my opinion. Although it is better than most others on the market I feel like it is not nearly airy enough.

Works so well!!! A lot of coverage and it’s buildable so that’s really great. I got mine for free from influenster to review. I will buy it when mine runs out.

Review for: 49 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
Es una base de muy alta cobertura, que una vez aplicada debe distribuirse lo más rápido posible pues sino es más difícil difuminarla, se difuminar bien tanto con esponja como con brocha.

Yo en lo particular sólo la utilizo para ocasiones especiales donde el maquillaje tiene que ser un tanto más producido ya que sí es pesada.

Cabe mencionar que tenía muy altas expectativas ya que en innumerables reviews casi casi decían que era perfecta. No es mala pero hay que saber manejarla, sino puede llegarse a ver fea, además transfiere por más que la fijo con polvo, eso sí, no saca brillo facial, manteniéndote mate por mucho tiempo. Aún transfiriendo dura bastantes horas.

En total contiene 30ml (1oz) y una vez abierta tiene una duración de 12 meses.

No sé si cambiarían la fórmula de la base pues por lo menos la presentación sí.

En lo particular no la volvería a comprar pues no me gusta que transfiera y sí siento la base durante todo el día. Esperaba algo mejor.

I love this foundation! It is definitely full coverage, a little goes a long ways. It lasts through out the day. This foundation had a matte finish which looks so pretty. The only downfall would be that it sometimes showed the dryness on my skin. This did have a yellowish undertone which worked fine for me, but others it might not. Overall, I would definitely buy this again possibly in a different shade to see how it looks when I’m s little tanner!

When has Kat Von D ever let us down? A really creamy foundation that goes on as a thicker cream & really wears well through the day or night. Performance under lights, heat or rain is brilliant. For vest results I recommend you exfoliate your skin the evening prior to wearing this product. If you can put a nice moisturiser on your face up to an hour before application. As this is long wearing I find it sits better & wears longer if you follow these steps. Wearing either the matching Kat Von D primer or another primer under the foundation will help keep your foundation looking flawless & skin hydrated.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
It is truer to my actual shade than most foundations I have tried, however, it is absolutely horrible for my dry skin. I can moisturize for days on end, and this foundation will still dry me out. I have to mix it with moisturizer so that it won’t look blotchy and cakey on my skin which means the full coverage benefit of it is gone. It is definitely a good full coverage makeup, and a little goes a long way with that.

I love the thick consistency of this product, personally I don’t use such a heavy foundation all over my skin (I have freckles and flaunt them) 😋 but using his under my eyes as a higher coverage concealer is my go too. I love how sleek and clean the packaging is, and I am obsessed with the applicator. Makes it super easy to control the amount of product you want to work with and over all I just recommend if you love a full coverage, not drying out but I would say it does matteify the skin at the same time as leaving it moisturized.

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?
