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 was my first every high end foundation and my first love. It is full coverage and very long lasting. It dries matte which is just what i love. I have normal skin and it was perfect for me but my skin often gets dry in the winters and even then it was amazing. Only draw back is that it is a little too thick so a little difficult to blend. I would still highly recommend it

Being extremely fair in skin tone it's often hard to find a foundation that matches me. I was quite surprised at how light the KVD range goes. I was using this foundation daily for 2 years! The coverage is beautiful such a full coverage and the foundation lasts up to 12 hours looking flawless on me! I have dry skin and this foundation looked amazing and not cakey at all.

This is like MAC studio but better when MAC failed. The coverage is there, but you have to like a matte coverage to like this foundation! And yeah it's kinda of heavy but I suppose you have to expect that with such a high coverage foundation. I only use 1/2 -1 pump for my whole face. And let's thank Kat for supporting all us pale girls and showing the beauty community that "ivory" isn't the palest our skin tones go.

This foundation is a full coverage matte foundation.
When I first brought this I absolutely hated it! But, now I love it.
I found that applying this foundation with a damp beauty blender is the way to go.
Originally I was using a brush and stippling and trying to blend it in that way, and it looked absolutely horrible.

Also make sure to use a good primer, that's a must!

Kat Von D is my idol I love everything about her. This foundation is great. It is very full coverage and is build able too for extreme coverage. It is good for any skin type. I think applying with a sponge will give you the best results. The only things I don't like about the foundation is how thick it is, you can feel it on your face all day, and it does oxidize

I absolutely love this foundation. I have a hard to match skintone and this one matches perfectly. It covers all my problem areas, my uneven skin, blemishes, everything! Super bendable but you can't let it sit before blending or it does get cakey. Full coverage but feels lightweight. Definitely my favourite product. Love it. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

I recently bought this foundation due to its great reviews at its coverage and how long lasting it is. I attended a festival using this foundation and it did not move from my face. It's great for those who are looking for a long lasting matte foundations and for it being a cheaper high end foundation it's amazing for the price. The packaging is also great and eye catching

So, this product wasn't my fav for a while but it has grown on me and I've began to love it! It is full coverage as it claims and a little goes a long way. However, a thing I disliked about this product is it doesn't dry down very well, it remains almost tacky once applied but it does last a long time but the transfer is a problem especially for my boyfriends shirts!

I bought this Foundation twice now and I absolutely love it I finally gives me great coverage and I don't find a cakey at all which I was afraid of because I read reviews that it was it goes on very well when I use a blender to blend it evenly I will definitely buy another product when this one is finished. I find it is a bit pricey but a little bit goes a long way

Kat von d lock-it foundation makes your skin look flawless. It blends out evenly and it works for me, I have oily skin. Pros: super full coverage. Cons: it might not work for all skin types. I love this and will definitely buy it again.

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?
