Kat Von D 'True Portrait Lightweight Medium Coverage Foundation'

Not only does this vegan offering from Kat Von D come in 40 shades, but its clever liquid-to-powder formula helps control shine and creates an airy matte finish, making it the perfect pick for those with oilier complexions. It also features an exclusive ‘Elastic Essence Effect’, which means it won’t clog pores and moves with your skin. Like we said, clever.
