Most Helpful Positive Review BEAUTIFUL FOUNDATION
I have been using this foundation for roughly 3 months now, and I absolutely love it. I am a little disappointed by some of the poor reviews, so I want mine to set the record straight:
1. Some people noted that the foundation feels heavy. While I disagree, I think there may be a few explanations for this. First, the users may not be used to full-coverage foundations. With significant pigmentation comes a slightly "heavier" feel on the skin. I solely use full-coverage foundations, and compared to others (like the Estee Lauder Double-Wear, or Tarte Amazonian Clay), the All-Nighter feels much lighter. Second, the users may be applying the foundation in a way that uses more product than is necessary. I find that using a damp beauty sponge is the most successful technique with this foundation because it gives me control and allows me to build up the product in specific areas.
2. Some people also noted that the foundation does not stay on very long. Again, I disagree, so here are some possible causes. First, when makeup companies compile their "claims", most long-wear tests are done with a primer and setting powder (since this is how the majority of users will be applying their makeup). This being said, the longevity of ANY foundation increases when you use a decent primer and setting powder. If this foundation isn't lasting on your skin for as long as it claims to, and you're not taking these precautions, it's more than worth the effort. Second, most foundations will appear to "break-up" or "separate" on the skin if you use too much product. Since this foundation is very full-coverage, it is important to be mindful of this during application! I find that I can get away with using about 1.5 pumps for my entire face and neck without any issues.
I hope this clears up some of the negative feedback left for this product. I truly adore it and consider it a HOLY GRAIL

I really wanted to buy this foundation. I really did; however, I feel like my drugstore foundation does better than this! It is full coverage, I will admit. That didn't change the fact that it glided off after spraying one of my setting sprays onto this. I never had a foundation do that to me. It oxidized WAY too dark. I can usually get away with this, but it was WAY too dark. The creasing was horrible around my nose. I also noticed some missing patches, which makes no sense because I applied the foundation with both a beauty blender and a brush (I thought maybe it needed to be applied differently). It's great coverage, but the cons definitely outweigh the cons.

Natalie from Florida
My t-zone is EXTREMELY oily, not just some minimal shine. It is an oil slick with only a couple hours even without foundation. That being said, this foundation looks beautiful on, and covers absolutely everything. It has a soft matte finish on me. Please do not use more than one pump for your entire face/neck. I don't even use a full pump and can cover acne and scars flawlessly. However it doesn't help with my oil at all (doesn't make it worse though). Keep in mind it oxidizes a little. A lot of comments saying it turns orange but you just need to select your correct undertone.

Absolutely FLAWLESS application and coverage. I was completely blown away. It. Is. Stunning. Wish I'd tried this sooner.
Dries out my skin,cakey
AshleyH from Limestone,TN
I feel like this foundation really matches well to my skin and it goes on well. However,I apply it in the morning and by lunchtime my skin looks super dry,flaky,etc. Just overall terrible. I moisturize my skin,use primer setting powder and spray. But it still doesn't look good at all halfway through the day
Orange, orange, orange
DanaElayne from Nashville, GA
I wanted to love this. I really did. I bought two different shades 1.5 and 1. Both shades turned me absolutely orange from the oxidation on my skin.
I love this!!!
Gigi from Desmoines ia
Very light weight and doesn't cake
Color matching app failed me.
None from Texas
Nothing to say, other than I wasted my money.
Karri from Wyoming
I bought this foundation because I sweat a lot and needed something waterproof. I was super disappointed. The foundation does not blend well and it looks cakey on my skin. I put it on this morning and took it right back off it was so bad.
No, foundation makes my face really greasy.
Yess from CA
I tried to use this item daily but unfortunately made my face really oily. Foundation smears with any touch to my face.
Her majesty from San Antonio
I use concealer daily because I have rosacea and need the coverage but it tends to make your skin look orangy
Worth the money!
Nhdz510 from California
I've been using this foundation for the past 5+ years & it remains my favorite! No matter what new foundation I try i keep coming back to this one. The coverage is amazing & a little goes a long way with this product.
Great reviews will try

I want to purchase this item but can't color chose.
Peach from Lehigh Valley PA
This product is true love!!!
My skin is a combo of oily and normal. When wearing a mask at work all, I feel oily and shiny and gross by the end of the day/ and I sit at a desk!!! So I purchased this to give me mattifying and I love it because it's not too heavy like the Mac foundations, it's not drying! It's not cakey. It goes on smooth and I literally used three small drops for my whole face! This bottle is worth the money! I also found a shade that matches my skin better than any other foundation I've ever used! I double checked an artist at the store and she agreed on the color match. I wish I had found this for me wedding instead of using Make Up Forever's HD photo finish! It has great natural looking coverage, after my morning routine I moisturized and then put the foundation on and my under eye concealer and I'm good to go for a day of running around and cleaning! Then I can dress this look up more for work and super easy! This is my new favorite, thank you UD!!!!
Candy from Va
Best matte foundation ever!
Disappointing, like most foundation...
Bacchante from Alaska
Not worth the hype, $$$, or stress of worrying if I've turned orange yet. I'm very pale. Too pale for the majority of foundations without a white mixer but the lightest UD shades are pretty workable. Except, of course, that this is the worst oxidizing foundation I have ever used. It's so bad, that my coworker who was also finishing of a bottle of this, guessed exactly what foundation I was wearing after watching my horrifying transformation. It IS full coverage and applies pretty easily. I'm giving it 3 stars instead of fewer, because as disappointing as it is, if you are a lover of modern high coverage foundation formulations you may like it. Like pretty much all full coverage foundation, it is pretty obvious you're wearing makeup. Not my jam. I knew it was full coverage but I dared to hope for a gorgeous, perfected finish. My bad.
Definitely my go to for myself and my clients
Yaya from Paramount
I love love love!!!!!! This foundation I am a person that loves full coverage this definitely has that I do have oily skin this foundation is a perfect combo with a setting powder I will not be oily the whole day! I also use this foundation for my clients even if they don't need full coverage I most use it when I know they will be taking lots of pictures or will have the makeup on for a full day. I know this makeup will last them. This makeup does not move or melt. However I would not use this foundation for everyday unless you want that extra coverage. And the formula does matify very quickly But it is still workable and not a big issue
No thank you
Liz C from Michigan
This foundation is great for full coverage and builds nicely. BUT it turns orange, every time. I have tried different shades and different moisturizers and primers. Still oxidized and made me look like an oompa loopma. The Naked foundation line by Urban Decay is WAY more true to color and feels so lightweight on! this is would give a 2/10.
Peeps from 82604
Covers acne scars very well and it stays put all day .
Love this foundation !
Shell from WPB
I finally switched !! I have been wearing KVD for a very long time. This makeup goes on so nicely a little goes a long way. Stays on all day not reapplying or misting in the afternoon. No wearing off. One of the ladies at the store made a recommendation of going a little lighter than normal as when it drys it will dry slightly darker and she was spot on !!!
Stuck on this!
Cherry bomb from Fort Worth
Love this foundation! I have bad acne and after I apply this you wouldn't even know it! It matches my golden undertones very well. I have oily skin and wish it were a tad bit more matte for me. However I always get a flawless look with every application. I'm a UD junkie!
WHAT FLAWS ???!
misscynthia.mp4 from California
Perfect for a full coverage queen !!
Cruelty Free AND amazing quantity!
AllyF from San Diego, CA
I switched to this foundation from Estée Lauder's double wear foundation. I switched because they test on animals, even though they claim not to. If you're unfamiliar with the animal testing process, please research it. You will want to switch all your brands :( This foundation goes on smooth and lightweight, yet still covers blemishes and lines. Very good coverage! I was recently in a pool for hours and my friends all noticed my foundation was still almost perfect. Highly recommend! It doesn't dry your skin out either.
Becca from Lake Grove, NY
This product is really heavy on your skin. I was unhappy with how it went on, it left streaks and looked caked on no matter how little you used. I tried a brush, sponge and fingertips for application.
Urban Decay changed their foundation line and they shouldn't have.
My favorite foundation of all time
Brooklyn from California
The shade is perfect (0.5) and does not oxidize for me! It is a perfect matte but still glowy finish. It does not crease and lasts me all day without deteriorating. Really great for hiding my pores too which I use along with the Dr. Brant pore refining primer.
JJ from Alabama
Shade matching took 2 tries. Customer service was awesome. Not 1 problem.
Will continue to buy!
Tee from New Hamshire
Amazing foundation. This covers everything! It lasts through not only my day, but my workouts. It isn't coming off until you take it off. Flawless.
Advise :DO NOT always go by the " find my shade". I ordered online believing I was a 3.25 which was so light on me. I finally went to the store and The lady said 4.0 would be next shade up, NOT 3.5. That was a surprise to me.
I tried the 4.0. It was a perfect match. I am blonde, hazel eyes, and between a light and medium skin tone.
