LOVE!!! This product is great. I really wasn't expecting much when the Sephora worker recommended this because I thought it was a gimmick product. I was totally wrong. This foundation has high coverage, I rarely use a concealer on my dark spot prone skin when using this. I don't know about the 24 hour lasting power because I only keep my makeup on from 8am-7pm, but during that time it wears quite nicely. My only problem with this foundation is that it transfers a lot, even when I set it with a powder. I apply this with a buffing brush since it is a bit thick. It also has a pump built in which is great, but I have a hard time seeing how much product is left since I cannot open the product. Color is a great match as well i am between a NC15 and NC20 and bought Light 48. Really want to try the lock-it concealer after how impressed I am with the foundation.
I did not have a good first impression of this foundation. It was quite dry and not good looking when I first tried it. I realized that this foundation requires a bit of trial and error when it comes to making it work. For me, the coverage payoff was worth trying to find a way to make it work. If you have severly dry skin or are prone to dry patches, you will likely have to find a GREAT moisturizer or primer to make this work. I have acne prone skin that is also prone to dry patches. The way I got this to work for me is by using a moisturizer first, then applying the foundation with a GOOD brush (I love Real Techniques expert face brush), and then using a hydrating setting spray so that the foundation does not look or become dry. I like ELF Mist and Set Spray which I think is good and cheap. When I use a primer with this, I like to use Hourglass Mineral Veil. As long as I use a good base first and make sure to use setting spray, I find the foundation provides amazing coverage and doesn't become dry or cakey. The price is worth every penny and I find I only need 1 pump for each application. A little goes a long way. I LOVE that I don't need any concealer. Definitley would recommend.
So i bought this foundation because everyone raved about how full coverage it is and i totally agree. Definitely the most full coverage foundation i have ever seen. I don't like using this as a foundation all over my face but rather use it for spot concealing. I dont have terrible skin but i do have acne scars and just use this for spot concealing. Since this is so thick you wont get the no makeup makeup look and its super matte. I have normal skin and it made my skin look almost kind of dry. I love this foundation as a concealer but not for all over foundation. Another thing is since it is so thick you need to work to take it off or you will get clogged pores and acne.
This foundation is full coverage, matte and long lasting. It is exactly what I wanted in a foundation. I don't have any problems with it transferring. It matches my complexion perfectly. It glides on well but it is a thick paste like consistency Kind of like a full coverage concealer. It dries quickly but not so quick that you need to rush through your application. I really enjoy using this foundation. It doesn't give you a mask like cake face appearance which isn't very flattering so thats really good. I find that I do not need any concealer when using this product. You also do not need more than 1 full pump for full coverage (more like a little more than half a pump) if you have blemishes and redness you'd like to cover up. For reference In MAC I am an NC 35. In KVD Lock it Tatto Foundation I am a Medium 53.
Fullest coverage available in my opinion. The packaging is amazing! This has lasted me so long. It hardly takes me any to cover my whole face. It lasts all day long and looks matte-dewy all day. It goes on even and is truly amazing. The best foundation I've ever used. It's pricy but lasts so long it's worth it. Seriously amazing! Definitely worth a try.
This was way too cakey for my liking. It IS possible to be full coverage and not have a cakey appearance. It took forever to set and made my oily skin even more oily. Not impressed at all.
I love Kat von D's cosmetic line! Definitely a full coverage foundation, dont need much concealer after this, does make me a bit oily after a long time of wearing it, but no spots or unsightly build up of this on my face, it stays even! However it does transfer, so be careful around white shirts lol! Overall, one of my favorite full coverage liquif foubdations.
For awhile now, I've been looking for a foundation that seems like it could withstand all the conditions of a rock show. Lasting 11-14 hours and sweatproof. I finally tried this product today and I feel like this could be the one. I'm in the shade Light-Medium 52 and after it oxidizes, it matches my Asain skin perfectly. I found it to be super easy to blend with my Real Techniques buffing brush. I hadn't even used a primer. It's not waterproof, but it comes pretty close. I put some on the back of my hand (without a primer) and tried rubbing it off with a q-tip. It finally started to come off if I rubbed it hard enough, but it does come off easily with makeup remover.
The only two downsides are that it makes dry skin more noticeable (Which won't be a problem for me after winter). And I noticed a somewhat chemical-ish smell. But it doesn't bother me too much. Overall, this is an amazing foundation. I would repurchase, but you don't need to use that much, and there's a ton of product, so it'll be awhile before I do.
I bought this product in light 44, I was matched by the girl at Sephora, and it seemed to match better than any product I've previously used, but I found it to oxidize rather badly through out the day, to my surprise.
I was so excited to try it out at first because it's the first time I've come to splurge on a higher end product, as I usually stick with drug store brands. I was really disappointed by the coverage. I apply it with an Elf powder brush and I stipple it in. I tried using powder with it once and I found it looked extremely cakey and unappealing. Every review I've seen tends to rave about how highly pigmented it is and the outstanding coverage. While I do have some minor acne and post acne scarring, the really annoying red/pink marks, this foundation took two layers to even make all that non noticeable. It didn't last as long as it claims, or others have claimed, either. I can wear it through out my usual 10 hour day but definitely not without a couple touch ups, unless I just don't care that day.
I'm not going to repurchase this product, I have no desire to at all. I'm just waiting for my bottle to run out now, as I mix it with moisturizer, because I hate to waste product especially when paying that price.
I think I've definitely seen better results with drugstore foundations.
What a disappointment ! Lol, I really wanted to be able to love this foundation, it was full coverage as I desperately needed and the bottle was so beautiful. However, it is much too heavy for me, it was like spreading gunk on my face, it never set & it transferred sooo easily. Had it for one day and returned it.
