Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
I absolutely adore this foundation. It has taken me forever to find a formula that is good for my skin. I have combination oily skin and I find most foundations wear off after a couple of hours. A little goes a long way and I don't have to apply much to cover my whole face. It gives super amazing coverage too without being too heavy. This foundation has staying power! I also love that it has paler shades than most other foundations, as I find it hard to match to my pale skin.
personally i did not find the kat von d lock it foundation to be that great. unfortunately, i was matched incorrectly in store and the colour was too dark and it really oxidized on my skin. even when mixed with a lighter foundation it was way too dark and oxidized. if it was the right colour i would buy again but the oxidizing makes me unsure.

I love this product!! It's the only foundation that I will ever use now! I was very skeptics to buy this in the beginning as a lot of people said the was very thick and cakey, but OMG 😲 it's the best foundation I've ever used! It's completely full coverage ( which ya girl needs☺️) and it totally mattifying! In addition to this I have to say a little definitely goes a long way! It's completely 24 hour wear and doesn't wear off throughout the day! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS!!!

Having heard great recommendations of this product I was anxious to try it. Having an event over 12 hours long I needed a long lasting foundation and this definitely lives up to being long lasting however I found it often appears cakey and can look painted on quite easily making for an unattractive look. It does conceal blemishes and pigmentation but I would not recommend this product for acne prone skin as it is quite heavy and would most likely lead to further breakouts.
I got the shade light 44 as I would say that I am yellow toned, pale skin. One pump of the foundation covered the whole face with good coverage, I also use a power foundation on top for extra coverage and to help keep the foundation on. Then the initial foundation it looks very pale (obviously) but once I added blusher and contour powder, the foundation matched perfectly and didn't look like a mask. Lasts all day with minimum touch ups when a fixing spray is added.

KVD's products are generally amazing but this foundation? DAMN! The coverage is AMAZING. It doesnt feel overly thick and so easy to blend. Even with out concealer this product hid my spots and freckles perfectly. There is such a wide range of shades also, and as a ridiculously pale girl, its usually pretty hard to find my exact shade. but lock'it in Light 45 is perfect for me! It is also so long lasting no matter the conditions. I honestly could not recommend this enough!

My shade is Light 43 Warm. I have repurchased this 3 times in the last 5 years. My skin is very clear, so I only gravitate towards this foundation when I know I'm going to need something sweat-proof and long lasting. I recommend applying with a beauty blender. It's very full coverage and thick. I barely need 1 pump to cover my whole face. I recommend this to someone who is normal/oily. I have dry skin and sometimes it can look a little dry if I don't use a proper primer.

I love that Kat has very, very fair shades for us pale girls!!! And this foundation wears well for quite a long time. I can go all day in this foundation, it's full coverage, and it works well with my oily skin. In fact, I even had dry patches with this product (although, it was winter at the time), so i'm not sure that I would recommend it for drier skin types. I would say this is comparable to Urban Decay all nighter foundation, but I prefer the UD finish over this one.

This is a great full coverage foundation! I love the packaging because of the squirt bottle and the fact that the bottom of the foundation botttle moves up to ensure you get every little last bit of the foundation. the price point it also great, 47 canadian for a full bottle! I will admit it can be a bit too matte and full coverage for me but i had a super hydrating/glowy primer like the hourglass primer serum or the first aid beauty coconut primer and it looks great!
Q & A
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?
Does this foundation come on very thick?
I have Rosacea, would this be able to cover up my rosy red cheeks?
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?
