I had to leave work on my lunch break to go wash this off. It felt SO cakey and heavy on my skin. It just felt really gross.Coverage was fine,but it emphasized texture and breakouts. I'll stick to my CYO Lifeproof foundation.My skin is combo,sensitive,acne prone.

I discovered this after one of my favorite Youtubers talked about it, and I truly love this product. I feel like it's a hidden gem and more people need to try this. i love combining this with my Hoolah bronzer. i use hoolah to contour and then use this to warm my skin up a bit. It's a perfect bronze without the orange. A little goes a long way as well. it's not cakey and goes on …Read more

I feel like this primer is so under rated. I used to only use UD or Shadow Insurance and was really weary of any drugstore primers, but I am so glad I gave this a chance. It really is comparable to UD or even shadow insurance. it keeps my eyeshadow and gel liner looking fresh all day , and even after my daily run/work outs. It's super affordable and the packaging is the same as the two …Read more

This stuff is amazing! Coconut is my favorite scent ever, and this lotion smells so fresh and clean and not artificial like most coconut scented things. I love it for many reasons, it's vegan, affordable, but mostly it's not greasy which is a big reason i avoid lotions all together.

I love this bronzer - perfect mix of cool tones and goes with many shades of skin. It doesn't look muddy and is emollient and blends nicely. I use a light hand with this however, because it's very pigmented and if overused can leave a grayish cast on the skin. I love to use this for my everyday natural contour.

UPDATE:
After debating for a couple of months, I finally gave in and returned this. i just didn't reach for this ever, only occasionally to use the highlighting shades and even those are completely dupeable. I do love that this palette had something for lighter to deep skin tones, however, I don't think shelling out almost $50 is worth it if you're not using every single shade …

update:
I recently got a few more eyshadow palettes and after realizing all the colors that are in this KVD palette are all in my other ones that I have, I ended up returning it. I simply never reached for this when I did my daily makeup and realized I use eyeshadows with the same and sometimes even better quality than these. I do like this palette, however I would only use a few shades and …

Good concealer over all, but i think the formula could use a little upgrade. i feel like this should be creamier and not as dry. I literally scramble to blend this out once I apply it because I know within 10 seconds on my skin it will be nearly impossible to blend smooth without major pull. It brightens my eyes and doesn't crease which is a bonus.

This really isn't meant for brown eyes, at least not for me. It made me look tired and sick whenever I used this, also, since I wear contacts my eyes get a little dry at times and this really accentuated any redness I may have in my eyes. Pink just isn't my color I guess. The formula is UD quality for sure, the pigments are good, but overall they were a little repetitive and there was …Read more
