I was looking for a new settling powder to add to my makeup routine. This was recommended to me by a Sephora cast member. I bought the travel size to see how I’d like it before committing to the full size. That being said, I should’ve just bought the full size. I love this stuff! It goes on so well and just melts into my makeup! I apply it with a puff instead of a brush. I find my makeup sets better when the powder is pressed into the skin instead of swept over. I noticed a huge difference the first time I used it. I wasn’t getting oily on my usual oily areas. After a full day at work I would normally be a greasy mess on my forehead and a few other spots. I barely had any shininess at the end of my day when I used this. I’ve almost used my whole jar up and I will most definitely be making a trip to Sephora to buy the full size very soon. This was a game changer for me for sure! The price is pretty reasonable for how much you get and how much I use on a daily basis. I found this to be a bit cheaper than other high end loose setting powders which is a huge plus. If you’re looking for a new or just a cheaper setting powder give this a try.

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.

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.

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.

Kat Von D has some really amazing products this is a pretty decent setting powder unfortunately with how pale my skin is using the setting powder with my foundation and concealer already being on it turned my concealer and Foundation a darker color which then messed my look completely up. It seemed to work pretty good but it looked cakey I think if there were different varieties and different colors of the setting powder it may have worked better but I'm not for sure because it still was cakey so I don't know if it would make much of a difference with the color being different or not

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!!

So first things fist I bought the travel size to try it out. It was $13 at sephora so yes the price us rather high. That being said I love that there is almost no flashback in photos and this is an amazing baking powder! It's slightly yellow so it can be used by darker skin tones without looking ashy. I don't exactly like that it comes with a powder puff but it really is good for on the go. The powder doesn't fly everywhere in the air like most powders it's somehow thick but very fine grain, if that makes any sense.

This powder sets my foundation perfectly, and lasts FOREVER. I apply makeup almost every day and I've used this product for maybe 9-10 months now and I've only had to buy it twice, with one of those purchases being the first time I ever bought it. Definitely worth the price you pay. If anyone is worried about breakouts, I have struggled with acne since the fifth grade due to some hormone issues and Kat Von D products (Lock-It Foundation + this setting powder) are the only products that haven't made my acne worse.

I love the setting powder but I will only use it for major events or when I’m looking for a heavier look. It is a great job at really making your heavy make up stay for a good couple of hours. I also scarcely use it because it is expensive and I have a cheaper drugstore version of a setting powder called air spun which works just as well. I tend to have higher end stuff and then drugstore stuff every day. I have noticed that this gives sometimes if flashback and I was just making sure they just blend the product really well. The product is great for baking and for just setting your make up

Something I always look into for my makeup is #1 Vagan #2 cruelty free. Kat Von D Beauty is known for being both. I received this powder a few months back as a gift from my sister. Sadly I am almost out 😬 This is an Item I use almost everyday! I have used Airspun, LM, and a few other drugstore and High End brands. I am satisfied with this product over all. I feel I do lose a lot of the powder while applying it, but what lose setting powder doesnt do that? Doesnt leave flashback and applies great

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?
