Product Description

Meet Lock-It Foundation’s BFF! This hydrating primer is a pretty smooth move for creating a pure, clean canvas that’s primed and ready for long-wear foundation!

This water-based, fast-absorbing formula is infused with high-tech polymers that minimize the look of pores. With a lightweight, milky consistency, the primer is specially formulated so long-wear, full-coverage foundations (like Lock-It!) glide smoothly and evenly onto skin. When prepped with Lock-It Featherweight Primer, you’ll notice right away that foundation won’t settle into fine lines and your skin will stay hydrated and protected.

Nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba and shea soothe and hydrate your skin, creating that balanced surface that you need for a ridiculously flawless finish. It’s also free of fragrances and dyes, to keep even the most sensitive skin happy and fresh!

  • "this stuff definitely makes my skin feel hydrated before putting on my makeup. i also use to kvd foundation with this and it helps with the dry patches. wouldn’t say it’s the best primer you could get for this foundation but i do like it a lot! i just think it’s not good for the oily parts of my skin. very convenient and cute packaging that i love and you get a very good amount of product!" in 326 reviews

I got this product because I wanted a long wearing primer that wouldn’t make my makeup slip and slide all over the place. I have combination skin, so when I used it on the dry areas of my face, the primer worked amazing! However, when I would put the primer all over including my T- zone, this primer didn’t do anything for the shine. I know this is a hydrating primer and it’s not meant to have a mattefying the fact, but if you’re like me and you have an oily T-zone then I recommend using this primer in the dryer areas of your face and using a matte primer in yourT-zone

Although the foundation being a flop for me, I ended up really liking the primer. I had to steal some from my mom because I liked it so much, and eventually went and bought my own. It gives me a nice base and I love the way it makes my skin feel. I love applying it with a brush or a damp beauty blending and applying a bit of powder over top. Even though I am oily, and this is a hydrating primer, it doesn't make me too over the top oily!!!!

(Disclaimer, this is what happened to me, and my opinion and etc)
It’s Horrible, it’s SUPER thin! It doesn’t last long at all, and showes all of my pores, it does not help at all, It makes my skin a lot more dry and makes my skin very red, and I was disappointed, at first I didn’t care, but I started using it for about 2 weeks, and it broke me out so bad! And I do not like the formula, I do not recommend this!

Perfect for dry to normal skin types! This has a very similar consistency to Too Faced Hangover Primer and feels more like a moisturizer! I use this before any type of foundation finish and it works well on my dryer skin type. More affordable of the primers in Sephora. Recommend for dry skin especially!

By far Kat Von D is one of my favorite products, with everything. The primer is great because I have combo skin type, and this helps hydrate my face without making it oily. I noticed a big difference when using this product. Sometimes the foundation can be dry, in certain elements, so this primer really helped for that.

I used to use this religiously but then I realized my skin problems were coming from this foundation. It is very thick, looks super cakey, and oxidizes very fast. I don’t recommend this for people who want a natural look. This is full coverage and needs A LOT of setting spray/powder to not look greasy by the end of the night

One of the best primer I’ve used . It’s my go to and I prefer this one over smashbox. The cost is $32 you don’t need much product and provides a clean smooth surface to work with. Very light and has a really soft scent.  I use about 3 pumps and I’m good to go .

I have this primer and I have to say but I don't like it at all it does not seem to prolong my makeup at all it doesn't seem to make my pores look smaller or my fine wrinkles look better it just it does nothing other than maybe a little moisture my skin but that's it this primer does not make my Foundation last longer at all and I am just so disappointed it's the only Kat Von D product and that's saying something because I like everything she makes except for this.

Got a sample of this from a friend and I really can’t wait to purchase this, there was enough in the sample for two applications... I wore it once with a full face and once with nothing but the primer and I have to say I’m impressed. Will be purchasing this cruelty free vegan HYDRATING face primer!

Does this help hide any pores and bumps/texture? I love the foundation and that in itself hides my pores pretty amazingly, but sometimes they perk through as does the texture i have on my cheeks. hoping this is worth the cost

I'm trying to find a primer that can suit my oily skin and make my makeup look smooth, without any cakey effects. Would this be a good primer? Or are there any better ones out there that you guys recommend?

Has anyone mixed this directly with the KVD tattoo foundation & how did it effect wear / finish? The KVD foundation is too cakey by itself and I was hoping this might thin it out some.
