The KVD Vegan Beauty Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm has been everywhere! TikTok users went crazy for it, and so naturally, I had to try it out for myself! The product comes in a completely recyclable clear compact - yay! - and you get 10g for £29.00.
There are a whopping 40 shades to choose from, ranging from pale to deep skin tones, and I did watch a You Tube video that said to order a few shades deeper than you might think, as the colours did come out lighter, so I opted for the shade Light 010, which is for light skin with cool pink undertones. This foundation is a buildable, full-coverage, hydrating balm that has a lightweight long-wear formula and a fresh matte finish, although personally I didn't find it overly mattifying and if you have oily skin, you would probably have to use a powder over the top.
The formula is infused with Apple Extract to help nourish the skin and I found that the Balm minimised the appearance of my pores and gave an overall, smooth healthy look to my complexion. It is non-cakey, flashback-free, and covers blemishes and discoloration, and I normally have quite red cheeks, and so I did really appreciate the coverage this gave me. I have combination skin, with an oily T-Zone and drier cheek areas, and so whilst this worked overall for my skin type, I did find that a powder over the T-Zone worked best.
I did try using a foundation brush, a BeautyBlender and my fingertips to apply the product with and I definitely preferred the look using my fingertips gave. Because this is a high coverage foundation, you can go over the top of blemishes after applying if you need a little extra coverage, which again, was really good for the redness on my cheeks. Since not wearing a huge amount of makeup during lockdown, I don't always like heavy foundations anymore, and as this is so lightweight and comfortable to wear, I have been reaching for this quite a lot recently.
