Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation really is a holy grail product for those looking for full coverage. It’s the most opaque foundation I’ve used. Amazing shade range - I wear light 44 - there’s a number of paler shades which is astounding! It can be very heavy and cakey to apply but I’ve found if I mix a bit of primer or strobe cream with it it works like a dream. I suffer with acne and this covers it completely!

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
Now let me start off by saying I had this colour matched in Debenhams, and it was a perfect match. However this is not the case... It's a lot darker but that's not my main gripe. PATCHY. It's so patchy 😩 and so orangey / yellow. I have super dry skin but this is capable of making it look oily!! As for 24 hour coverage, I can barely get 2 hours! Wanted to love this but it's so bad 💔 I've tried different primers, concealers, application methods but it's just so damn patchy! As for the bottle design; I loved it at first, but it's so bulky for travelling - especially in handheld baggage on flights where you're only allowed one bag of liquids, and the """lid""" gets so messy and is annoying; a proper lid would have suited me better tbh!

This is a very nice foundation.I got a lighter shade but i combined it with a darker one that i had and it work's like a charm.I am happy that KVD is in my Sephora! I wish to get more and in the future to get my right shade. It's creamy and you can use little by little until you get the perfect look.I recomend nad have fun with it.

Review for: Light 41 Neutral more...
Firstly, I love Kat Von D so it kinda pains me to make this review but it has to be said. I had such high expectations for this foundation, read the reviews, watched the bloggers bla bla bla. It almost seems the marmite of the foundation world and I wanted to make my own mind up. Anyway, I ordered it online.... BIG mistake. I’m usually the lightest shade in every brand so went with that. Unless you want to be an absolute ghost then please don’t purchase shade 41 unless you are using it for lightening drops. I was so annoyed not just to throw away £27 (Debenhams UK) but because of my experience with it. I had a play about regardless of the colour and I really didn’t like the consistency on my face. It was cakey and so full on coverage where you can completely tell that your wearing makeup. Not natural at all. I am so sad about this however I have heard that there has been a change in the formula and perhaps this is just for this particular shade. I definitely will upload another review when I get matched to my shade. Lesson learned! Always visit the very helpful Kat Von D makeup artists as they are so lovely and helpful!

Favourite foundation ever! A little goes a long way I buy maybe 2/3 a year as it lasts and I use it pretty much everyday. The coverage is full but can be thinned out with a facial oil, but I generally like it full coverage! It dries matte but doesn't really need a setting powder but I still use one under my eyes where I get creases. Overall, really love this foundation does everything you want your foundation to do.

Review for: 46 LIGHTS - COOL UNDERTONE more...
The coverage for this is simply amazing. It has a semi-matte finish that truly hides every single mark and blemish on my face. It even hid marks I didn’t know were there. Lock-it Tattoo Foundation made my face look flawless, and because I really didn’t need very much product to get full coverage, my face didn’t look like a lifeless mask. 

The final win for Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation is the fact that it did not dry me out. Or maybe it did, but it’s just so good at hiding my typical mid-day flakes that I didn’t notice. Either way, my skin never looked or felt dry. It was also never oily.
Anyway, it’s pretty safe to say that I love this foundation. It might even be my new HG (Holy Grail).

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
I used the love this foundation, but I haven’t reached for it lately! Now I’ve been trying it again and I just think the formula is too thick for me! It just doesn’t blend well with a beauty blender and you have to work fast otherwise it will stick to the skin! It also oxidises a lot so I gradually get more orange throughout the day! It also collects around the opening of the pump, and when you pin it out you get hard lumps in the foundation which are even harder to blend! Used to love but now I’m disappointed

Review for: 45 Light - Warm Undertone more...
I received this foundation in my Lock-it voxbox! I really like the formula and coverage it provides, the foundation really does go a long way. It reminds me of the shape tape foundation by tarte which I also really like! 💕 I applied it with a beauty blender and followed it up with the Kat Von D créme concealer! I feel like the concealer was a bit too light a shade for me but blended out nicely regardless! The only downside to this foundation I noticed is that it began to separate on my nose, and I feel this may be because I have an oily t-zone! If you have more oily skin maybe this foundation won’t last as long as it should! Regardless, I was able to create a flawless look with it l! Thank you so much @influenster and @katvondbeauty! ♥️🖤☺️

Review for: 57 Medium-Warm Undertone more...
Right, I’ve hear mixed comments on this foundation about it being to thick consistency and oxidising. However, I’m absolutely in love with this foundation -yes, it’s thicker consistency but not too thick that I can’t blend it, with a wet beauty blender it works amazingly. Also I don’t feel like it oxidises too much - maybe ever do slightly. I have a combination skin and I feel like it just works perfectly even though it’s a satin finish it never makes my dry areas look dry. I am so happy with it and will repurchase it again and again.

Review for: Deep 76 Warm more...
I bought this foundation because i’d heard so many people talking about its coverage and i was desperate to see for myself. I have a lot of dark marks and hyperpigmentation on my skin and this foundation covers it all and leaves my skin looking flawless all day. I bought it from a sephora while on holiday in mexico and found that it sunk slightly into my smile lines while in that climate but when i used it at home in england it stayed flawless all day. still one of my favourite foundations💘😍

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?
