Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect!!
I've never been more excited about foundation! This stuff is awesome! I love a natural look and when you are a pale gal it's hard to find one that matches! This matches perfectly and just a little bit does the job. The foundation brush is beyond words as well. Worth the money and you wont be disappointed!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Overhyped, Don't Bother.
If you have even *slightly* dry skin don't even bother. This foundation is patchy and transfers even after setting. Even with a base prepped with moisturizer and primer, and an application of setting spray and powder this foundation settled into every fine line and pore and transferred so easily. It made my skin look about 10 years older and genuinely worse than my bare face. The colour was decent and it's pigmented but it may be the worst overall foundation I've ever used and I'm also stuck with it because their international return policy is a JOKE (10 days from PURCHASE??) **For reference my HG foundation is also a high coverage cream so it isn't just a usage/type of foundation problem.

definitely covers and makes skin look nice BUT i do notice that it clings to dry patches and makes it harder to blend. nothing a moisturizer can't fix but it's very annoying. other than that it's a pretty good foundation
The best foundation!!!!
Val from Michigan
Let me just say I don't understand the negative reviews on this. This foundation is the best and I have tried almost every foundation on the market high-end and drug store. It gives you the most beautiful finish. Very light weight. Doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup at all. It's such a beautiful foundation.a little goes a very long way! This foundation is the best! Definitely recommend this foundation.

I bought this and wanted to love it but just couldn't! I did my entire makeup and my boyfriend looked at me and asked me what I put new on my face and I thought it looked great but 10minutes later after getting dressed it creased and look cakey and anything that hit my face it came off!!!
It's good not good with dry skin
C3c3Keen from Indiana
I have dry skin and every time I apply it in to my face it just makes my face appear more dry and flaky. I even used primer, and moisturizer all over my face and I still look crusty! However, this is really nice for combo skin or if you are prone to dry skin don't get it. It blends nice! But it moves around on your face.
Love love love this foundation balm!

I am absolutely in love with this foundation balm! It is definitely full coverage, but feels light on the skin. A little bit goes a long way (be careful not to overdo it or it will look cakey). I prefer applying it with a damp beauty blender. For me, the coverage lasted all day and didn't settle into any fine lines, which is a huge bonus! I highly reccomend picking up some of this foundation balm for yourself!
best foundation ever
shatefag from undisclosed
First thing first! I have never used a foundation that is THIS FULL COVERAGE! The coverage is unbelievable and unreal. Though the shade I received was a tad bit too light for me. It was still a bomb finished look after contouring and highlighting. It's as if I didn't have on makeup on my face. It felt so light and natural. The application was extremely easy and smooth. This is definitely a must buy for me! 100/10
good for concealing
kaylamaid from undisclosed
A little goes a long way. This foundation is full coverage but buildable. I like it better to spot conceal and blur areas rather than a full face foundation. Definitely a very versatile product that can be used in multiple ways depending on your skin type.
omob1 from undisclosed
I really like the coverage. It's build-able and not thick. Great for concealing the under eye area. Price point is good as well. Another fantastic product from Kat Von Dee!
alexallan3 from undisclosed
You have a lot of options in terms of coverage with this product. It doesn't get cakey but does wear away quite easily.
haylshern from undisclosed
I was pretty skeptical of this foundation since I heard from most people that it's oily however for me that was not the case. I loved how full coverage it is and I really didn't have to use much of it. Best for dry skin
Great in Photos, Cakey in Person
heidiorrr from undisclosed
At first, I was surprised how full coverage this was. It was easy to blend with a brush and a little went a long way.
My issue is that it's just too heavy to be wearing everyday. I have combination skin and without a primer, this foundation separates on my t-zone after 2-3 hours. Looks amazing in photos but unnatural in person. I feel like there's been a lot of blotting and touching up for days I wear this foundation all day day. Highly disappointed as there was a lot of hype around this product.
Can't get it right
Zyereri from Atlanta, GA
I have Combination dry skin and this foundation…. It's just too dense. It's lightweight but it sinks and makes my skin look worse. My advice? Use a TINY amount.
xmissbijou from undisclosed
I really wanted to like this foundation but it's WAY too cakey and impossible to apply. I tried with multiple brushes and blender sponges and this made my face look incredibly dry. I have combination skin and despite moisturizing and priming prior to applying, this gave me dry patchy looking spots.
Varah from undisclosed
Fabulous! This makes my skin flawless. I'm still on my first compact, I bought the day it released. I have two backups, I don't want to be without this ever. I am a beauty adviser at Ulta, and have literally used every foundation brand out there, this is the best.
Smooth and Creamy

This is my first time using KVD products. At first glance the packaging is very inviting and modern. I was a little disappointed that it didn't come with a sponge of some sort, but it wasn't a huge deal. Not a deal breaker by any means. The color was darker than I had anticipated, but did seem to lighten out the more I blended and layered. The application was very smooth which was nice for coverage. Overall, I enjoyed it. Just maybe would go a shade lighter.

i enjoyed this foundation. i haven't worn foundation very often in the past year but as i go out more, i've been looking for a good foundation and this may be it. i will continue to use it in different situations but i may purchase again.

I really loved this foundation balm. It's very full coverage and a little goes a long way. After a maybe 5 hours I did notice some creasing on my wrinkle lines. But overall it matched my skin tone perfectly. I would definitely keep using it!
Eh, It's Okay
srcowans from undisclosed
Overall, I think this is a good foundation for those who prefer balms over liquids. I am a liquid foundation girl. Also, the color match was a little off. During the summer, my undertone is kind of reddish and this showed up yellowish on me. I will come back to this during the winter when my undertone changes. It did go on smoothly. I did notice that as time progressed, it begin to settle in my skin. Also, it has a matte finish; I prefer a dewy/natural finish. However, the matte finish did not last long due to me getting very oily.

This product is very interesting and not quite like anything I've ever tried before. I struggled with the color since it seems to tend more on the orangey/yellow side, and it is also very full-coverage. I could see it being great for someone wanting full-coverage, but since I usually tend to more light coverage it looked quite cakey on me. But if you're looking for full-coverage, it's worth giving it a try!
nice product! I use as concealer
hellobrookey from undisclosed
I really like this product! I have been using it to spot conceal and using powder on top as this product is very full coverage and I look for more of a light-medium coverage. The color match is awesome and very full coverage but appears to be able to be sheered out and blends well (hence how I can use it as concealer)
love & hate
smcloon from undisclosed
Holy freakin coverage! I def underestimated how far a little bit of this foundation goes. The package design is also very cute and easy. However, I have combination skin and the foundation after just a little bit of wear created weird dry patches which made me super self conscious. I tried a few different types of applications and couldn't get it to do not do that. If you don't have dry or combination skin I'm sure this would be perfect for you!
A little goes a long way
leeg70fa from undisclosed
High coverage and looks pretty good in-person. I like to keep my application as thin as possible cause I don't like the look of full coverage. Normally advise against using a cream foundation if you have oily skin because your sebum will mix with the foundation creating an oily mess. I only use cream foundation if I have to get into makeup very quickly for a relatively short period of time (< 4 hrs). However, I did find that this stood up better compared to other cream foundations I've used over a longer period of time. It did cling in weird patches on my chin, which I've never experienced before though.
sahermf971 from undisclosed
One of my faves!! A little goes a long way. This foundation has buildable coverage , long lasting and does my feel heavy on my skin. This will be my new go to foundation.
melissajoybehl from undisclosed
I really wanted to enjoy this foundation. It made my skin look cakey and didn't have a nice finish to it. I just don't think it agreed with my skin type, I think this would be good for someone with well hydrated and moisturized skin.
alexl131 from undisclosed
Overall this product is decent. Not my favorite foundation I've used, but not bad! I received this for free through an Influenster campaign. I was excited to test it out especially since it has a "matte" finish. Overall, I found the product to make my skin a bit oily. I have very in-between skin, so a cross between oily and dry. This product definitely help with the dry patches on my skin! It didn't appear flaky when applied. However, as the night went on, my skin became significantly more oily. I recommend using it with a powdered foundation combination. Overall, color match was good too. It didn't make my pale skin look even paler. I would probably not buy this product again just because it didn't exactly work with my skin, but it's worth giving it a try!
