Lovely coverage

I love this foundation. It gives great coverage and is non-greasy. It has a slightly cool sensation when first applied which feels fresh. Long lasting wear is also a bonus!

The best foundation!

I love this foundation. I wear it every day to even out my complexion and it is so smooth and lightweight, it feels like nothing! Has a very subtle herbal smell which I don't mind. Also love that it's local from Vancouver.

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!

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.
