She uses a color-mixing technique favored by master artists to create what she describes as “elevated color cosmetics.” Her painting background guides what pigments to use and how to match skin tones to the right products.

So I’ve tried a million foundations. I work in the cosmetic industry and I could never find THE ONE. Until I tried Kosas, I resigned myself to tinted moisturizers. Pairing this with their astonishing concealer, my face looks flawless! There’s no weight to it, the complexion is natural and bright. Plus, the amount needed to cover my face is so small, that bottle might last me forever! It’s the perfect foundation!
Despite seeing a lot of negative reviews I decided to try the product anyways. I’m glad I did! When it first came, I tried it right away to see if the color would work. I put it on half of my face. Didn’t need very much product (1drop) and I could tell a pretty big difference.I was looking for a lighter way to even out my skin in the summer months. This will be perfect!Just not sure why this doesn’t have any sunscreen in it?
Yesssss!!! I love this!! It definitely gives a nice but beautiful tint! I have freckles so I want to be able to show them off! I have very dry skin and I personally loved this formula on my skin
As a clean alternative to the drug-store foundation I’ve been buying for the past 10 years, I’m happy with this product. I’ve been using it every day for the past month now and my skin has not put up a fight. I think it’s actually reducing my dark spots from previous acne phases. It applies really smooth and you get a lot of coverage for just a few drops of the stuff. However depending on the day (super humid or hot) it can make my skin appear a little oily. I try and mitigate that with a powder. Overall I’m keeping it as my new mainstay just bc I do think it’s helping my skin’s natural appearance and I generally like how it applies and looks when I wear it. Can’t wait to try their revealer concealer!
This product was completely unusable for me. It sat on top of my skin and did not sink in at all. It also really accentuated the texture of my skin. I had just exfoliated my face with the DE sukari baby facial and my skin was looking super smooth and primed. Then I applied the Kosas tinted face oil and my skin looked like a flaky, splotchy, cracked mess. It was horrible! It also felt so super gross that I had to wash it off. I still wanted to try a tinted face oil so I ordered Haleys Beauty Re:Invent BB Drops which is made with marula oil, apricot kernel oil, and vitamin E. The Haleys Beauty face oil worked much better for me and didn't highlight the texture and imperfections on my skin.
