I love this foundation. It's very thick so only a couple of pumps goes far. You wouldn't use as much as you would with other foundations. The packaging is beautiful. I am not a Kat Von D fan (nor fo) so my opinion of of this makeup is purely on the makeup. Great coverage and lasts all day. I'm very yellow and it matched unlike many other brands. I wear medium 57 and it matches the same as MAC's NC35
The consistency is pretty thick, but surprisingly it is pretty buildable and stays matte even without primer (of course it is much better with it but still). I'd recommend using moisturizer/hydrating primer on the areas that tends to get drier though, because although I have an oily skin it got me dry on certain areas on my skin. Unfortunately it tends to look slightly cakey on me but only if you look really closely, but it's matte and extremaly thick so not even that surprising. I do not know about other shades but mine has a pink undertone which is not the best since im more yellowish, but overall I am satisfied.
But be careful, since it's that thick it might be causing you pimples, but maybe it's just me.
I love this foundation! I initially got matched for this foundation a few months ago and they matched me with light 42 which actually matched my pale skin. I only just now got around to purchasing the foundation and unfortunately that shade is no longer sold in sephora stores and says coming soon on their website. I had to purchase light 44 which is just a touch darker than my skin but better than most. However that is my onlu complaint. This is not a natural foundation. It is full coverage and you can tell that there is makeup on your face but it doesn't look cakey or powdery. If you have dryer skin I do reccomend moisturizing and exfoliating regularly. As for the wear it last on me all day. I can have goundation on my face for up to 16 hours and this foundation will still be pn my face. If you are looking for a full coverage foundation I can not think of anything better.

COMMENTS: This is great for oily skin. It stays put and controls oil very well. I love the coverage, but it never feels heavy. It does dry quickly and is quite thick, so you have to work fast. I suggest using a sponge for the best application - a little goes a long way! It doesn't settle into fine lines, either. The major con that I have with this is because of its thick/dry texture, it clings onto dry spots real bad. I also prefer something that doesn't take as much work to blend. Love the product, but if it weren't for those cons I would repurchase.
Will not repurchase.
Love love this product! Great for my combination skin (oily t zone and dry outer skin). Awesome coverage, even though it's not heavy duty as it says but still good enough coverage. Also very smart packaging, love the pump.
So i went to sephora to get a match for a foundation and the MUA recommended this. I thought it was okay but it is super heavy on your face. It definitely covers but it feels as if your wearing a mask. I didn't get oily which is good, but i wouldn't try it again. I hate feeling like im wearing a mask
It does what it promises, which is incredible full, matte coverage. For the most part, I did like this foundation. However, it is extremely thick, almost glue-like, and I found it difficult to blend - almost impossible if I wasn't wearing a moisturizer underneath it. I didn't notice it break me out, but it did tend to cake up and dry my skin. Lastly, the range of shades isn't the most extensive, and the shade I owned seemed to oxidize after a few hours, becoming too dark and orangey for my very fair skin. Overall a good foundation, just not the best fit for people like me.
OH MY. This foundation completely exceeded my expectations. I had been struggling finding a good full coverage foundation, it was either not enough coverage or too cakey. I am not a huge fan on using concealer so my foundation would either be too sheer or look very cake face. This product is hands down the best full coverage foundation I have ever used. Definitely my new HG product. It's good for all skin types if you prep your skin properly with a good moisturizer and primer. It will leave your skin absolutely flawless. I was so worried it would clog my pores and break me out but since I've been using it, it hasn't broke me out once. I see a dermatologist and my skin is fairly sensitive and it's been simply amazing. For 34 dollars it will last you FOREVER. Totally worth the money. Simply amazing.
Great product. It is expensive but a little really does go A LONG way. Seriously, just a little bit. I find using a lot of this makeup is what makes it cakey or layer strange on your face.
This product is a great all day wear. Myself, I have oily skin and my skin stays almost matte after a 9 hour work day with this product. It is also great for a night out with photos.
The only downfall rating is for the packaging. I find the bottle gets messy with the pump, it is also very large for any transportation.
I can't say I absolutely love this foundation but I do like it. the color matches perfectly, it covers everything and looks nice and airbrushed when I apply with the beauty blender. the things I don't like about this foundation is I don't find it matte, at all and it never seems to really set on my face and has a sticky texture. also when I put powder on my face after with a brush the foundation separates, but when I apply powder with the beauty blender. I probably won't buy it again since I've tried much cheaper foundations that are just as good
