Best for oily skin, limited shade/undertone range
I have combination oily skin, which gets SUPER oily this time of year. For this reason, I only use serums, a mattifying SPF moisturizer, and primer under makeup in the summer. I forgot to apply my mattifier while testing this, but that was a happy accident: This foundation is MATTE!! No need to set with powder and you do NOT want to apply this around the eyes. I have a LOT of textured acne scars. This covered most with one swipe. I went over my cheeks twice, as they have the most scarring. I wore this for 8 hours and it looked great until I removed it. I only saw the tiniest shine on my cheeks and nose after 4 hours or so. I accidentally rubbed my nose and chin throughout the day, and I could only tell close up (and even then, it was BARELY noticeable). I still have to try it over a luminous primer and a regular SPF moisturizer, to see how it performs. Downsides: 1. I'm sure I won't be able to use this in the colder months, as my skin dries out due to the indoor heating (this is NOT a dry skin-friendly finish). 2. Limited shades per undertone. I purchased shade FB-14, which is slightly too dark. It's fine for mid to late summer, but I won't be able to use this once my tan fades. There isn't a lighter "deep" shade w/ yellow or golden undertones that matches my skin.17 found this helpful.Christine C. Aug 20, 2019
Love this foundation
I am 67yo and have combination skin so finding a foundation that doesn’t cake or become too shiny is difficult. This foundation solves that issue. Goes on easily and blends evenly. Covers sun spots on my cheeks and creates even matte coverage. I used it for the first time at a summer wedding that was outdoors for the first hour. The coverage lasted through the outside time and throughout the next 4 hours of dancing!! Love it!!10 found this helpful.jesse f. Aug 17, 2019
creamy to cakey streaking powder
even with included brush and my beauty blender this left little desire to reapply which sucks since I love most KA products. sits awkwardly and never really set. does feel like luxurious cream to the touch but turns into a pressed powder consistency which exaggerates pores and fine lines. also tried with primer, moisturizer, spf, oils and on it's own, never got the desired coverage. was looking forward to keeping this as a staple for easy on the go application, not the case. will stick to bottled foundation for now. great concept but not quite it.. :(8 found this helpful.Buthaina A.

I'm in love!
I have an extremely T-zone where foundation wouldn't last on that part of my face beyond 2 hours. My face seems to drink up foundation like we guzzle water on a hot summer day. This foundation stayed put for over 10 hours and could have lasted longer if it wasn't time to wash up and prepare from bed.
I highly recommend this for anyone with oily or combo skin. I did powder my T-zone, only out of habit but I am pretty sure it would have performed just as well without powder.3 found this helpful.Molly E. Aug 21, 2019
I have to be honest, this foundation was a let-down for me. I had very high hopes, as this was the first time that I was trying a foundation balm (not to mention it's KEVYN AUCOIN!) I felt like it looked drying on my skin. It is very full coverage, but it ended up looking patchy after only a few hours. For now I will stick to my liquid foundations. If anyone is interested I did review this foundation balm on my channel. Momomakeupofficial -- I received this product complimentary from Kevyn Aucoin and the Octoly Family.3 found this helpful.Ann N. Dec 07, 2019
Was scared at first. I have dry skin and all the reviews said to stay clear. Thank goodness I don’t listen well. I used tatcha moisturizer and an oil. Went in with a beauty blender and had perfect skin for 10 hours! The shade match was perfect which usually never happens. I love this stuff! I really didn’t need another foundation as I have 30 others. However this inspired me to use all my others up and keep purchasing this and just a few holy grails. I would have never bought this without beautylish’s sale. Now I love it so much I will purchase at the regular price. I’m a medium tan for shade reference.2 found this helpful.
