Formula and application gets 5 stars, but I subtracted 1 star due to the smell. I used to use the LM translucent powder and noticed that as I am getting older and the skin under my eyes is becoming more dehydrated, the LM was starting to settle a bit in the creases under my eyes and accentuating these lines as the day progressed. The Kat Von D powder does not seem to appear dry or settle under my eyes even after 12 hours of wear. I apply this after my concealer with a damp Beauty blender under my eyes and "bake" it for about one minute. I have been using this now for about 3 weeks and I think that I'll continue to use this over the LM. The smell isn't bad, it is just strange to me and I am not crazy about it. It's not bad enough to discontinue use, it's just a little off putting. Nothing major though. I also love absence of parabens and sulfates, along with not testing on animals! I recommend this to anyone especially is you want a good, natural setting powder to "bake" without looking like an Instagram model with a cake face.

I received the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent for free in a VoxBox last year. If you love a matte look to your skin and makeup, then this is definitely the setting powder for you. Personally, I prefer a more dewy look, but I do sport the matte from time to time. I have dry/combination skin and this powder didn't cause any irritation or dryness except for around my under eye area. There was a bit of dryness there. It does dust across the skin nicely in other areas though, for a beautiful pore diffusing effect. I have fair skin and the powder didn't leave any weird pigment on my face. Which is a huge plus. The jar comes with A LOT of product. My biggest complaint though is that the jar is kind of messy. There's almost always a big pile of loose powder sitting on top when I open the lid and it likes to go EVERYWHERE. :D Not fun when it lands on the clothes you plan to wear out for the night.

Holy setting powder amazement, batgirl. This KVD LockIt setting powder has CHANGED MY LIFE. Not kidding...I got this powder in a set with the KVD concealer (review on that soon, also FAB), as a trial set at Sephora (one of those but so many items of this size for “x” dollars). I am cursed with dark circles & dark shadows under my eyes-always. Even when I’m tan and relaxed at the beach, always. I’ve tried and been disappointed in so very many products to conceal, correct, and set that area - it’s gotten worse as I’m an over forty woman also. I do use a good eye cream faithfully am & pm, I’m careful about avoiding shimmery products with fall out and tacky, messy mascara formulas, etc. I’ve watched bajillions of tutorials-you get the idea...I followed the enclosed instructions in the two items to the letter and for the FIRST TIME EVER, my under Eye area was bright and smooth and even! I burst into tears, I was that excited...Since mastering the under Eye area, I’ve been using this powder to set more of my look and have been truly blown away by the quality. I can “bake” with it or just brush it on & off. It does not settle into pores or ANY of my fine lines, it’s a mostly matte finish but it’s a little brightening as well. Alas, my first holy grail powder has been found. I will be gifting both items to my daughters-in-law this year for sure. Maybe my sister and mom also.

Excellent powder!Interesting mica based formula
Give a lot a of luminosity to the skin
I never noticed any glitter just pure luminosity 
The only thing I don't like is the texture. It's the kind of flour like texture (like the Laura mercier)but the heaviness doesn't translate on the skin.The powder completely disappears leaving a luminous veil in the face

So I just bought this the other day at Sephora and I was so excited to try it because I have heard so many great reviews on this! I tried it out the next day. Did my makeup per usual. Primed, used foundation, and concealed. I went to set my under eyes. I tried one side with a beauty blender and the other side with a brush and they both pretty much turned out the same. They looked very cakey and this product made lines appear that I didn't even know was there crease so bad! I looked like I aged by 10 years!! I wanted so bad to love this product! It has cute packaging and it feels amazing. Very silky smooth! Under my eyes my skin is normal. So I don't understand what could have gone wrong. I also made sure I didn't use too much product! I'm very disappointed!

So like many other reviews Iv read, I used to be a Laura Mercier trite and true user as far as the translucent powder was concerned. I have always struggled with creasing under my eyes, and I have learned a bunch of helpful tips to avoid creasing and decrease appearance of creasing, but all in all the best things were 1) starting to use a hydrating under eye primer 2) change my under eye setting powder to this Kat Von D one!  This loose setting powder doesn't dry my skin out, leaves a nice subtle glow and sets so well that I only need to use my setting spray; where as before I had to use fix plus to settle the dry powder into my skin. very happy with this product!

I was recommended this setting powder by many many people. I heard lots of fantastic things about the product it made me want to try it. I have had so much trouble finding the perfect setting powder. From coty airspun to pressed powders. Here I am , finally finding the perfect item to add to my daily makeup routine. This setting powder is by far the best one I had come across. It sets my makeup so perfectly , it highlights every desired area , and it doesn’t look cakey. The price point is a little up there because it’s Kat Von D but I do recommend many of you out there to try this wonderful setting powder. I’m thankful I did

I used to use the Laura Mercier powder and switched over to this after I became a big fan of the Lock-It foundation. This powder is amazing. I struggle to keep my makeup on because I'm a stylist and I'm working with hot tools/blow dryers all day and nothing survives a 10 hour day of that. With this powder I at least stand a chance of leaving the salon without looking like I've gone through a car wash. This powder is light, buildable, and really helps lock in your makeup without getting cake-y or dry. I have super oily skin, as well as dry patches, and this works like a charm for me.

I’ve been using this setting powder for a little over 2 years and it has always been my go to. It keeps the shine and oil off my skin for several hours but lately I’ve been noticing how it makes my skin look patchy dry. Or a residue of over use. Could be just me. But I love this powder, no over powering scent, and feels soft to the touch. I wouldn’t recommend using with a mattifying foundation, it’ll really make your face dry and enhance du spots. Otherwise a good product, but a little on the pricey side. I will say though I’m still on my second batch. It goes a long way!!

I looked through Q&A and noticed term "baking" that I don't quite understand. What does it mean in the context of setting powders?
