Great foundation

I love this foundation. Provides a nice amount of coverage and is so nice knowing I am putting a product on my face every day that contains great ingredients. I would like if they made a bit bigger bottle!

Jennifer Skogman
Lightweight and perfect coverage

I’ve used the Kate foundation for a few years now and I really love it. It’s lightweight but yet covers really well. I haven’t found anything that compares. I highly recommend trying it!

Favorite foundation

My favorite foundation. Lightweight, feels really nice on my skin with still good coverage. I’ve tried a few other Sephora foundations over the years and always come back to this one. Is a staple in my morning routine.

Lightweight and beautiful finish!

This foundation is the perfect fit for me as someone who doesn't wear heavy makeup. It makes my skin look glowy and even without feeling cakey or thick on my face. Perfect coverage with a little bit of a dewy look. It's also great for cost as a little bit goes a long way!

My go to!

I have used this product for years and love it. It blends so evenly and doesn’t leave a cakey feel. Love!
