This is a thick, FULL COVERAGE foundation. There is no such thing as layering when it comes to Lock It. Most people probably won't even need to use a full pump to cover their entire face. I didn't see it oxidize that much. One thing that I don't like about this foundation is that it tends to dry down and set almost immediately so you have to blend it fast. I prefer to use my Sigma F80 - Flat Kabuki Brush .
I start to see a little bit of oil seep through on my nose after 6 hours of wear; this is excellent for my skin type. I do find that the coverage is a bit more long lasting when I set it with the Kat Von D Lock-it Makeup Setting Mist than some of my other setting sprays.
It just was not the foundation for me.
I would have rated it a 2, but it is a great FULL coverage foundation. Just NOT for DRY SKIN.
1st of all, I bought online so I ended up ordering a shade incredibly too dark for me.
I drove an hour to our closest Sephora store to return it and get help from a consultant to find the right shade for me.
First question from her "Are you really SET on KVD? It's a very heavy foundation and you do not look like you need something that heavy. And it is a matte finish, Which is the main reason it is sticking to your dry skin"
She set me up with another, lightweight, coconut oil infused, medium-full coverage foundation and WOW. The difference in the two is insane!
For dry skin, I'd rate the foundation a 1-2. Try something different!
For regular-oily skin.. 3-4. Give it a try!
Photo is with the KVD foundation on.. Just did not work for me and my dry skin. Can't tell in photo but I have orange dry skin spots ALL over my face. As u can tell, it is not the right color for me by comparing my face color to my chest. 😳
First of all, I think the shade range with these foundations are awesome, L46 is my perfect shade. I was also amazed by the coverage of this foundation. A little bit goes a long way, and this foundation is definitely high coverage. However, I give this foundation 3/5 stars because it did not control my oil whatsoever. It is advertised as matte and 24 hour wear, but after around 3 hours my face began to get oily. I tried powdering my face, but my oil still came through and began to break up around my nose. I was very disappointed, as I had heard great things about how thing foundation is oil-controlling and long wearing. I think this foundation is best suited for combo/light oily skin. It was a good thing that I didn't buy the full bottle, I got a few samples from Sephora and tested it multiple times.
A few months later I decided I would like to try the foundation but had no clue what shade to get. I have always had a hard time selecting the right shade and more times than not I ended up with something too dark.
I decided I would go to the Sephora store and get professionally matched. When I got matched at first I thought the shade was going to be too light cause it was one of the the lighter shade.
I was super excited to try this foundation. The next day I tried out the foundation. I used a beauty blender to apply. I was amazed! It matched my skin tone perfectly! It went on so smooth and when I was done it looked beautiful! It gave me a gorgeous air brushed finish. I love this stuff and it is completely worth the price. I would highly recommend this brand.
