A high-pigment foundation for full coverage with a long-lasting, beautiful finish. Kat created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage, without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed to match a broad range of skintones with bold coverage the proprietary pigments can even effectively cover tattoos. The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance. Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish and the added emollients provide a velvety texture for perfectly smooth, hydrated skin.

It is formulated Without:

- Parabens

- Synthetic Fragrances

This foundation has been formulated to work synergistically with Kat's Rehab Priming Elixir, Tattoo Concealer, and Lock 'N Load Setting Mist.

This foundation is definitely a FULL coverage formula... it’s thick, but if you use a little droplet, it won’t go on cakey and it will last a lot longer. I love that it lasts all day too! It is a bit pricey, but worth it for how long it lasts.

Loveddddd this product. You only need a pea sized amount in order to cover your face. It stays matte all day and feels really good on. Also it doesn’t clog my pores. Totally worth a try!!! Also it matched me so well!

This formula is one of my favorites! I hate the heavy feeling of full coverage foundation so I rarely wear it but this feels amazing on my skin. It provides excellent coverage while feeling light as a feather. It also pairs perfectly with the concealer.

Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is incredible. It is a heavier foundation, with FULL (extremely full) coverage. When they say full coverage, wow do they mean it. This foundation will cover literally EVERYTHING. It is made to cover tattoos and works very well. Will cover an entire sleeve if needed. It is pretty expensive, so I personally would not use it as an everyday foundation, but one for extreme situations that I would need beyond full coverage. I love the packaging, it is beautiful. The container is heavy and will not break (and I've dropped it a lot!). I highly recommend this foundation to others needing full coverage. 

Daily, I use Maybelline's Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation.

This foundation is full coverage and made skin look so flawless. It was very easy to apply with a beauty blender. My skin is very dry but this product did not break at all on my skin. I was very happy to receive this from @Influenster as a #gift and will recommend it to all my friends. Thank you @katvond and Influenster #lockitfoundation #katvondbeauty #influenster #complimentary

VERY thick and a bit heavy, covers well, but apply quickly and best to use primer or moisturizer first. I found this shade to have very heavy undertone of yellow. It can also be a little tough to work with and you need to really blend or it will look cakey. I used it about 4-5 times full makeup on my skin, it can look a little cakey if I use too much product, so I tend to add a drop of facial oil to thin it out a bit and give it a more natural finish when applied.

Great coverage. The pump is perfect. The color matched perfectly too. It definitely is matte, almost chalky for me throughout the day. Feels a little heavy too. I feel like this foundation would work best when taking photos.

This foundation keeps me matte all day and doesn’t budge, it’s a great foundation for all day wear, however it’s very heavy (thick).

I love this foundation. I have very red skin and blemishes. This covers everything beautifully. I use it with a primer and it goes on smoothly. I have oily skin so the matte of it works great on me. If you have dry skin I would probably not use this cause it will dry you out

What is the best way to apply? fingers? brush? beauty blender?

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?
