Benefits of the Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm
This is a full coverage foundation “balm” meaning that you’ll still get full coverage foundation with the lightweight feel of a balm. It isn’t a liquid rather it’s a compact that goes on wet and dries down for a beautiful matte finish. The matte finish though, isn’t too drying or dewy it’s a perfect seamless look that feels like your normal skin according to the website.
Essentially, it’s full coverage in a hydrating balm so you don’t have to worry about flakiness.
This is a one and done product – you don’t need a concealer because it basically will cover your entire face including all redness, blemishes and acne (scars too).
It’s also buildable so if you swipe your brush once, you’ll get a lighter finish than if you go in a few times with the product.
Since it is infused with apple extract and sodium hyaluronate (similar to hyaluronic acid for moisture), the foundation balm actually helps to hydrate and nourish the skin even though it is full coverage.
Shades of the KVD Good Apple Foundation Balm
Here’s where it gets really exciting – there are 40 shades of the foundation balm with a huge range. The darker shades are strongly represented as well as the lightest of light shades.
The shades are organized by light, medium, tan and dark. And for each of those categories, there are the ranges of undertones: warm, neutral, terracotta, pinks you name it.
KVD Beauty really thought through the shade range here.
Here are some of the most famous YouTubers swatching each shade:

What Skin Type is the KVD Good Apple Foundation Balm Best For?
The KVD Good Apple Foundation Balm is best for dry skin. It is a mattifying product made for people with DRY skin. Can you believe it?
I also came across someone with oily skin using the foundation balm and originally it went on well but after going outside made her look really slick and oily.
Reviews of the KVD Good Apple Foundation Balm on TikTok
Also, on TikTok users got fuller coverage when they used a sponge or beauty blender versus a makeup foundation brush.
Here are some of the best TikTok reviews of the KVD Beauty Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm.
Mikayla is one of the biggest beauty gurus on TikTok and she did a wear test showing that the foundation broke up a bit around her smile lines but that was to be expected with the way she wears foundation.
Glamzilla who is my all time favourite beauty guru in Canada, says this foundation really works for her at first application. She uses it on a brush and swirls on her cheek and notices that it’s instantly full coverage.
She loves the fact that it covers all of her redness and says that it feels like velvet on the skin. She doesn’t do a wear test for longer than the first application so keep that in mind.
After testing the foundation out all day Chanel Mardrosian says that there’s barely any transfer after her wearing the mask at all. She did set it with powder so keep that in mind. She also says that if you have oily skin stay away as it may be a bit greasy on you!
I hope you enjoyed this KVD Beauty Good Apple Skin Perfecting Foundation Balm Review.
I’ll keep you posted on when I pick up this foundation so I can confirm or deny this review.
