I received a generous sample of this from Sephora in shade 57 i agree with the sales girl that the golden based shades are limited with that said its about 105 here in Arizona summer and this foundation has help up. I usually wear bobbi brown shade 4.5 becca foundation in olive mac nc40-42ish. If its not golden enough for you I recommend using L.A girl Hd conclears in yellow and green to cut any pink or red tones. I also use ben nye banana powder or bobbi brown golden orange powder to yellow it up a little more. I don't have oily skin i have combo dry but for the summer or if you need a foundation to last all day with full to medium coverage this is a great one!! and you have a drier complexion I do recommend this i will purchase in the fall after my tan has faded a little bit I suspect i might the next yellow based shade down.

I have mixed feelings about this foundation. First off, it's definitely FULL (and I do mean FULL) coverage, there's no doubt about that. So, if that's your thing, this may be perfect for you. OTOH, this stuff is VERY VERY thick which makes applying hard if you don't know what you're doing. Applying section by section helps. Also, some of the shades seem off. 74 is actually lighter than the 72 (glad I got samples for both). In any case 74 was good for my NW45 complexion.

In all honesty, I probably wont use this stuff again. I mean really, who needs foundation that lasts 24 hours??? This stuff basically good for people with VERY oily skin, tattoos (duh!), severe hyper-pigmentation, vitiligo, or a lot of acne. If you have normal to dry skin, you really don't need this amount of coverage IMO.

This foundation is full coverage but it's not as heavy as other full coverage foundations. It's very blendable and easy to blend around the face and it Delano adhere to any of the dry areas. This goes amazing with a setting spray to cancel our the cakey-ness. I believe this foundation is a holy grail product for people with acne since it's a full coverage foundation. I really like using it with a damp beauty blender to give it a natural look. Definitely recommend!!!

So a while back my sister bought this product when I first tried it I noticed that it was very pigmented and thick I stopped using it and years later I decided to give it another shot because my skin has scaring and acne so I thought it could cover it and I loved it it covers everything I would suggest using a beauty blender to apply it because it does dry quickly.

I can't use any primer with this!!!!! It does not function well with anything on my face. I cannot moisturize, I cannot use primer, I cannot even wear it with milk of magnesia underneath. This stuff will apply so patchy and slide off my face if I wear anything with it underneath! I have to wear this alone. This stuff does have good coverage though. Definitely very thick and can be hard to blend since this can emphasize your pores and dry spots. It can also look sort of patchy. Very very hard to blend!! Found that using my fingers and beauty blender works best with it. If you're going to be in daylight and around friends I suggest not using this since close up this foundation makes your skin look so ugly. At a distance though this foundation looks flawless and beautifully made up. It looks so glamorous but at a distance. This is an amazing foundation for night time! The reason why I gave it a three

This foundation is great if you're looking for an oil free, full coverage and flawless foundation. I didn't like it very much when I first bought it because I found it hard to blend and it looked too cakey.🎂
But now that I tested different methods of application I love it! You only need a TINY bit on each area of your face. Make sure you blend it good because it can leave splotches but if you're careful you can get a truly amazing coverage. I love the way this product covers literally anything. I have bad dark circles and bags under my eyes and when I'm wearing this I barely need to use concealer. I'll give it a four out of five because of how difficult it can be to blend at times. I'd say it's worth the price if you want a full coverage long wearing foundation that will NOT make you look oily!! Oh and also I should mention I tend to get acne around my mouth and chin, but I don't even need to apply concealer if I'm wearing this, unlike other foundations I have which require me to wear concealer too. Definitely give it a try but I wouldn't recommend for dry skin! Good luck gorgeous 💜

You know, looking back, I didn't have that bad of a run with this foundation.

This foundation is basically face-wall paint. It is opaque. Like, if you were to tell me you could hide a dead body in this stuff, I'd believe it. I've seen this stuff cover tattoos no problem and it will cover just about anything you can throw at it. It's not /that/ heavy compared to other full coverage foundations (ahem, Hourglass Veil Fluid), but it's still very full coverage. It can be sheered out to medium with a Beautyblender alone, possibly less by mixing in moisturizer.

However, one thing I did note with this foundation is that it is very finicky with moisturizers. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream made it pill and slide off my face, but it really played well with Dior Hydra-Life.

Although I have dry skin and this doesn't always play nice with people with dry skin, I did not have any issues with it emphasizing flakes on my face. My ultimate issue and what killed me using this forever is that they didn't have a color that matched me. This line tends to run very pink and I have very cool yellow undertones, which KVD does not really make. Even if she were, I still don't think I'd go back to it as I don't really need that high of coverage.

A small quibble, but I'm not a fan of how KVD designs her products. I know she's got the rockabilly/goth thing going down, but it looks like a roadie for Poison or Whitesnake designed it.

So, while it didn't work out for me, get a sample and try it before you purchase. Dry-skinned ladies are definitely going to want to test this before buying. If you are looking for something with lighter coverage, this is definitely not the one for you.

Pros:

- Full coverage (if that's your flavor)
- Long-lasting
- Can be sheered out
- Many pink undertone shades (for those that have them)

Cons:
- Limited yellow undertone shades
- Can be drying for those with dry skin
- Tacky packaging
- Finicky with moisturizers

This is my favorite foundation! Very thick, full coverage and buildable. If you like a thin look, like a BB cream or powders this is not for you. It also has a real matte look. When you use it, start with a small amount, one or two squirts and I highly suggest using a beauty blender as its so thick. The only other foundation that is comparable to this is Becca but Becca isn't as thick but offers almost as much coverage in as much product.

I LOVE this foundation. My skin is combination and I also deal with a lot of acne scarring. This does the trick to seriously conceal all those red marks and I don't even need to use a concealer when using this. I prime my face and use a powder overtop, and although I do need to reapply powder in the evening when wearing this (the oily parts of my face always need powder reapplication), it still covers my blemishes. I use a brush to buff it into my skin - if I use my fingers or a sponge I find that it can look cakey really easily. I also love the fact that it is oil free. I find a lot of products make me break out but this one does not. I have repurchased this 3 times since using it (pretty much when it first came out) and I don't plan on switching foundations any time soon!
