Good foundation with a price that is typical of higher end foundations. I like the formula and blendability a lot but the product oxidized on my face and turned out a little darker than I'd anticipated so if you go with it try to go a shade lighter than you think you'll need. Stays on all day and doesn't transfer. Not drying and doesn't make your face oily. It's even able to cover tattoos on its own! Good stuff.

I have always used drug store foundation, but lately have found the coverage just wasn't enough. I tried this on in-store and it is great! My skin colour is quite pale and can be hard to match, but I found one that works. The only thing that is a bit annoying is that it feels a bit sticky for awhile. I am going to try the lock and load spray too, seeing as it is the summer. I will be buying this again!

I have to ammend my original review for light 41...turns out this was not only the wrong color for my skin but also a completely different t formula!! I kept reading about people having this wonderful experience with this foundation and couldn't believe it after trying to blend an unblendable, ghostly pale, very drying formula. I gave up and haven't gone back until now. On the advice of a friend, I matched my shade to light 43 and the consistency is completely different. I looked online and a lot of people also had the same issue with light 41. Now I can say it's full coverage, easy to blend (but you must work quickly), and doesn't feel heavy or cakey on my skin. For those extra dry winter months I add a drop of tarte maracuja oil and it thins it out just enough to be slightly less matte but still stays all day.

At one point this is all I would use! As someone who is pale but also red this stuff covered it all. However with the thickness and full coverage means it also loves all the little wrinkles I have. It also oxidized very badly. Now I mix this in with foundations that lean to light on me and also if I want to ramp up the coverage but I would wear this again if I could actually fond a color that matched.

Review for: 47 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
This is amazing! I love how full this coverage is. It’s a perfect match for my skin tone, it’s easy to use. This covers all imperfections without looking like I’m wearing tons of makeup. It goes on matte and stays that way throughout the day. I have found my favorite foundation. The plus is that it is #CruelyFree and #Vegan which is something I go out of my way to look for. A wonderful product that aligns with my ethics. #LockItFoundation #KatVonDBeauty #HowILockIt #MadeWithLove. **i received this complimentary product in exchange for my honest review** Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
The coverage on this foundation is unlike any of the others in my collection. The shade range is strong, the finish is beautiful and the coverage is awesome. I personally prefer medium coverage, so one pump is perfect for that (applied with sponge). I had no issues with blending, but I will say it does dry quickly so apply little by little. Worn all day to my 9-5, I didn' t have any issues with the foundation breaking up or getting oily around my chin or nose, my normal problem areas. I can def. see this becoming one of my go-to foundations for long wear and high coverage. Especially for special events!

Review for: Light 43 Warm more...
Great full coverage with a satin matte finish.  I found that if blended better without a primer than with one, but it may have been the primer also.  Felt great going on and I didn't feel like it sat weird on my face.  I have combination oily skin and used the Kat Von D setting powder also.  It did separate a little around my nose throughout the day.  But I really like it.

Overall, I would recommend this product. I received it free in a KVD Vox Box with the Lock It Concealer with it. Unfortunately the color was not a perfect match for me and is too pale - I am hoping I can try it again in Winter for color matching. The product itself is pretty good - not a thick feeling on your face and gives a nice matte finish. It dries VERY quickly so you need to either work fast or do a little at a time. It needs a liiiittle help to blend well. If you apply on a brush that was sprayed with primer must or setting pray, it gets a little watery and harder to get full coverage. One pump of product gets you sheer to medium coverage and two pumps/layers is full coverage. Blends well with contour cream and powder. A super workable product I just unfortunately can’t utilize right now. I don’t think I’d use it or buy one had it not been free in a VoxBox.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
Okay this is the thickest, most heavy, high coverage foundation that has ever touched my face. I only give it two stars bc when a little tiny bit of this foundation is mixed with my FAB coconut moisturizing primer stuff it becomes a light, beautiful foundation that I love. It does not last long at all though when I mix those two. But this product alone is a 0 star product and my dry skin HATES it

Okay, I've been eyeing this for a while but I just don't want to buy a high end foundation again and be as disappointed as I was with the Too Faced Born This Way 😩 I have oily, acne prone, combination skin with a super dry nose. I have a lot of redness from acne and so on and I want something that covers it all instantly! I want something that stays matte all day, with or without primer, and doesn't melt off no matter the weather. I am super light (like ghost light) as well with a yellow undertone and wonder if they have any good shades. Does it oxidize? Does it wear off around the nose? Can you apply it both with a Beauty Blender and a brush? Would you say this is a foundation for me?

I really want to give this foundation a try and I have been hearing mixed reviews. Is this product worth the money or should I try something different?
