Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE
I absolutely love this foundation and switched from Kat Von D's line to this. It's a better color match, blends well, doesn't cause breakouts, sensitive enough to go over existing breakouts, dries matte and does not shoe pores when a powder is baked on. Hands down the best and will continue to purchase. Only thing is shake this bottle like no tomorrow before each use. The product separates and you're left with an oily product on your face. So shake it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Too Matte for My Dry/Dehydrated Skin
I think this was a good product, it was just too drying for my skin at this time. I have sensitive, acne prone skin that is on actives that make it prone to dryness and peeling, and I live in a climate with dry weather especially in the winter. This product is extremely pigmented. I mixed a drop in my SPF or moisturizer and my face had quite a bit of coverage, and used alone, it had the coverage of a concealer. The finish is quite matte which I know a lot of people like, but I prefer a dewy and radiant look, and while mixing with something with more radiance helped, it made my skin feel tight and dry as the the day wore on, even with a moisturizer. I had a little trouble color matching, the colors were all a little too pink or orange for my more yellow NC25 undertones but 35w was a decent match. It wasn't a bad product at all but it just didn't fit my foundation needs so I ended up returning it. I would still recommend it to someone with oilier skin who likes a matte finish.

Mo from Texas
I love the coverage it gives along with how easy it is to blend. The picture of the shade is a tad off though. Without color match it's hard to pick a shade.
Worst foundation I've ever had!
Blackpink from In your area
I don't have dry skin but my skin looks dry when I wear it. I have some hormonal acne I wanted to hide.. don't bother hiding anything with this foundation you see EVERY pore. If I could give this a -5 star I would. Returning this!!
Love this foundation
vegaschic from Corpus Christi, TX
Love this foundation, it covers flaws and spots better than anything I have ever tried.

Stays put even under my mask
I will use this everyday
hbovay from Tennessee
I was looking for something that I could wear under my mask and hope that it does not transfer completely off my face to the mask. This works much better than the No.7 Matte makeup. Right now I can wear my mask and take it off inside a restaurant and not be worried about all my makeup not being on my face.
Really Wanted it to Work
Kim from Maryland
I absolutely love the coverage, and the fact that a little goes a long way, but this is NOT for dry skin. It sits in every pore on my face, and dries my skin out severely around my mouth (I can feel the dryness pretty bad about 2.5 hours after application). What I do find weird is that I had one bottle that didn't dry me out like this, but I purchased a darker color because I got tan, and that's the one that is awful. So not sure if the formula is different between the two, but I will sadly be returning it.
Elvis from Chicago
I don't recommend the bottle.
Due to covid you cannot try on testers. Trying to find the correct shade, I had to return this product twice now. also, I found the syringe does not pickup liquid. I found the liquid to be to sheer. I am returning the product again for a cream base.
Worst applicator ever
Lucy from Gainesville Fl
I am currently planning on returning this product or came with the bottle half full and the applicator didn't even work!
Zelma from CA
This is hands-down my favorite foundation of all time. The key to using this foundation is NOT to treat it like a regular foundation. A dollop of this stuff is enough to cover my dark undereye circles, acne scarring (which is extensive - I'm getting laser treatments to treat them), and hyperpigmentation.
Instead of using a beauty blender, I use a small eyeshadow blending brush to apply it to trouble spots and blend it out from there. I use a dimethicone-based primer, Benefit's PoreFessional to be exact, underneath a small amount of this foundation and it's literally the ONLY thing that makes my skin look halfway normal.
I apply a small amount of yellow setting powder on top, and voila, my makeup is done. I personally like very natural-looking skin, and since I'm very oily I blot and powder throughout the day.
Textures worst nightmare
PolarRegion907 from Anchorage AK
TLDR - Don't buy this, it's finish is bad, it doesn't blend and the dropper comes broken or breaks shortly after.
I bought this product because it felt so smooth and provided excellent coverage in the store. Once I got home I found that dropper doesn't pick up product from the bottle. I thought maybe it's just a one off, returned it and got a new one same problem.That was just the beginning of this foundations problems.
You want to blend it? don't bother. When I tried to blend it out with brushes it just CLINGS to every single piece of texture or dryness on my face. I tried all kinds of brushes before giving up on them all together. So I used a beauty sponge, this worked slightly better but still it highlighted the dryness around my nose and under eyes. I can correct that with concealer but that's just more product I don't usually have to use.
The finish on this is awful regardless of the amount of product or how I applied it just looks cakey when it dries.
Desi from Austin, TX
I use this product every morning. Recently had a an acne break out and coverage used with loose powder is flawless
Absolutely the best foundation I've ever used.
Rebecculous from Seattle, WA
I've hesitated to purchase this product because I had concerns about shade matching, but I'm so glad a took the chance.
Not long lasting at all
Lara112 from Lawndale, Ca
Put setting powder over foundation and left my entire face oily after 2 hours. Foundation also smudges easily and transfers onto clothes/objects.
LJ from MO
Love the coverage and is buildable where needed. I have a deep red birthmark and this covers it completely! Also holds up with the hot humid summer days (I do set with the setting powder).
I would buy it ahain
Doxie mom from Dewitt, Michigan
I've only used it aline but I want to add to sunscreen for the summer months. I think that's an awesome way to use this product. So versatile!
Not sure about it...
Natalie from St Pete, Florida
I think it's would be great if I could get the right shade! Since COVID, I just had to go with what Dermablends shade finder suggests. Kind of disappointed!!
Kim from PA
I have a fairly large permanent dark spot on the side of my nose that defies all concealer/coverage attempts. I've tried dozens of premier and expensive products only to find that the spot shows through no matter how many layers I apply or how I build on them with setting powders, etc. This one ALMOST completely covers the spot with just a regular application. I use just a tiny spot of it to pat over the spot again when I'm done applying to my whole face, and the spot virtually disappears. Nothing has ever worked like this for me. I'm so glad I found this product.
Susie from SD
I Love this foundation! Great coverage without being heavy. This foundation has a siilky texture that blends beautifully. My new go-to foundation.
Good coverage but with some issues
Makeup Trier from Stockton, CA
It's a great healthy, highly pigmented foundation and great to tint sunscreen or moisturizer but I can't quite find my shade! Also goes on very drying and matte which is okay for really oily skin but it just feels too drying for me. Definitely does not give a natural look.
A game changer
Stace from Moore, ok
I use this with the jelly primer from the same brand. It is the best make up I've found for rosacea. It covers bumps and redness. It's my new favorite.
Jefe from TX
Use this as a full coverage foundation. Looks great in photos and zoom.
Dan from NYC
Let me tell you, never in my life have I written a review for a product, but here I am at 12:30 in the morning because it HAD to be done.
I have acne-prone combination skin. Oily t-zone and drier on the cheeks, but tend to get oily as the day goes on. I have tried many foundations but they either made me an oil slick or broke me out.
This product is great. It effortlessly blends and blurs our out any imperfections, redness and pores. Hours later it's still in tact. When I go to wash it off at night, I almost forget I have any imperfections under the makeup. In my opinion it gives an "airbrush" finish. Absolutely love it!
Best Foundation Ever
AwkooTacoo from Arizona
Now, I have used A LOT of different foundations, my skin is light with pink undertones and VERY sensitive. This foundation works wonders! Feels light and doesn't clog up my pores at all, I also got the Dermablend Setting Powder and it lasts all day! Absolutely love this!
Dropper Doesn't Work
NashTiff from Nashville TN
I want to love this product but the dropper does not work. I shook the bottle as the instructions said to but the dropper is useless. It's not a foundation that I can pour out of the bottle either. I'm trying to decide if I will return it when my store opens or get a makeup spatula to scoop product out everyday.
Dropper doesn't work
Cutenclassy81 from Georgia
I would also like to comment on the dropper. No product fill the dropper when you squeeze it,I had to turn the bottle upside down and let it run on the back of my hand.
