Full coverage to the max!!! My first high end foundation , definitely not dissatisfied. It does oxidize a bit and becomes a bit orangey (my only complaint) but with the summer coming up, it will definitely match my summer shade!! Doesn't feel heavy either. My oils do come thru by the end of an 8 hr wear. But the finish is dewy more than messy/old

If your looking for a FULL coverage foundation KVD has you covered. This formula is like putting on concealer it’s very thick. I wish there was a wider color selection, I find myself having to settle for a color too dark or too light. No problems with oxidation. I don’t find myself grabbing for this anymore since discovering Tarte Amazonian Clay

Review for: 47 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
This was my first non drugstore foundation. I walked into Sephora super overwhelmed with no idea what I was looking for. My skin was also a lot worse back then. An employee did a color match of my skin after she suggested i try Lock It foundation and applied it to my face along with the primer. Went home with it and didn’t really look back for a long time. It did make me look like a ghost in pictures sometimes tho. It’s been years since I’ve used it now and I’ve been itching to try it again and see how my experience with it is now that my skincare and makeup game is more elevated. I stopped using it because it was too drying on my skin but now my skin is a lot more refined and properly hydrated most of the time

Can you say full coverage? Love love love this foundation when I have pesky break outs..the foundation does not clingy to my break outs or make them more noticeable..this foundation is definitely long lasting and it is completely worth every penny spent..you get an amazing amount of product for the price you pay and the best part is that you only have to use a pea sized amount to get the coverage you desire..this foundation is definitely one of my favorites and will forever be!!

This foundation works so well! It is VERY full coverage so if you like a foundation that is full coverage I would say to get this foundation. Sometimes if I have redness or blemishes that u need to cover I put a little pea size amount on my forehead, both of my checks and sometimes my nose and it covers EVERYTHING up. I would definitely rate this a 10/10!!❤️❤️

I try a new foundation when one runs out usually but this one I’ve purchased the last few times! The coverage is definitely full and I do notice towards the end of the day it starts to break apart, but after a quick touch up with my face powder I’m back to flawless! I plan on repurchasing this one again! I pair it with the KVD primer as well!

Review for: 47 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
Love this foundation! It goes on so smoothly and blends so easily. Not streaky at all. This shade is perfect for my skin tone. Not too light but does not have an orange undertone either. Great for the upcoming fall season. I love that it has buildable coverage. I only needed a pea-sized droplet to achieve the medium coverage look I wanted. A little goes a long way. You can also use two droplets for days when you want more coverage. It felt lightweight on my skin and I love the super matte finish. It's also long lasting. Will def be recommending this foundation to my friends and be wearing it for work days or a night out!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
I absolutely love this foundation for when I'm doing costume / avant garde / extremely dramatic looks when I need full coverage, flat, solid base.  This foundation is extremely full coverage and long lasting.  My one problem with this foundation is that it's thick and caky looking.  If you apply with a damp sponge, you can avoid this but layer on some more cream products and you'll be looking caky in no time.  I wouldn't recommend for every day wear but this is a great foundation for going out and knowing your face won't budge.

First I just want to say I never tried this product yet but I do plan do. From what I hear it’s definitely not for dry skin. It gives full coverage (Its Kat Von D) come on lol i personally think it looks very drying on the skin if you put a lot of powder on, I think it would go good without. I will this product and review my thoughts on it but for right now this is it.

Here’s the thing. This foundation gets a terrible reputation. If you’re using more than one pump, you’re gonna have a bad time. The pigment in this is so high that you really need to cut it by mixing in a primer. 1:1 ratio and you have a BEAUTIFUL 24 hour finish.  I love this foundation. People just need to use it correctly.

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?
