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!

First primer I’ve ever used and lock it foundation was my first non drugstore foundation so Kat Von D has a special place in my beauty heart. I like the texture of the foundation very hydrating and works great when you mix the foundation with the primer first before applying

Works best with KVD'S foundation since it's silicon based.. doesn't leave a greasy residue, leaves skin ultra smooth for foundation application

I have large pores and have a problem with them standing out with makeup. I am looking for a product that can help hide my pores along with a few life lines that are letting themselves be known. Anyone use this product that has this issue and how did it work?

I'm wondering if this goes on more like a moisturizer/lotion or sits on your skin to fill in pores?

I used to have super oily skin and I absolutely loved Kats foundation. Now my skin has dried out substantially and the foundation clings horribly to my dry spots. Will this primer help with that?

I have very large pores and I have yet to find ANYTHING that helps conceal them. Does this primer help with pores at all?

Does this help my makeup last longer? Is it better for oily or dry skin?
