The Kat Von D lock it foundation is without a doubt the best full coverage foundation I have ever tried. The shade range is great, with shades covering cool, warm and neutral undertones and I find the neutral shades to be the perfect tone in-between. The coverage is fuller than any other foundation I have tried, it covers scarring and blemishes with ease and I don't even use concealer with this foundation other than for my under eyes. It also lasts all day on the skin, although it does get a little shiny throughout the day. My only issue with this foundation is that when topping up with powder to counteract the shine some powders can cause the foundation to break up and go patchy. Although when you find a powder that works well with this foundation then it's not an issue.

PRO: This foundation has unreal coverage. Very little product needed to be used in order to achieve the coverage that was wanted. This foundation literally covers everything. 
CON: Had a lot of break up on the skin within a few hours with how heavy the product was. It also looked quite cakey on other spots due to how heavy it was. 
USED WITH: Beauty Blender
PACKAGING: Loved the pumped, felt there was little to no product waste. 
RECOMMEND: I would recommend this to someone who has combination skin. They may be a little more successful than me. This product will last you forever though due to how much you need to get the coverage you want, so I believe worth the money.

Review for: 48 Light - Neutral Undertone more...
Okay here’s the thing: yeah it’s thick. Okay, true it is. So if you’re not a seasoned makeup wearer or just hate feeling makeup then maybe this isn’t for you. Or maybe it is and you just need to add moisturizer or an illuminating liquid to it!!! The thing is, there is NOTHING and I mean NOTHING that will stay put like this makeup, that will fill pores like this makeup, and that will prevent oil from coming through like this makeup. For those of you peeps who go work out right after work with your makeup still on? No more sweat streaking through your makeup! This will hold up. I have repurchased this many times and take offence when people dislike it. This foundation is an oily, enlarged pore, discoloured person’s dream. Dry skinned humans need not apply.

After applying this foundation in shade (Light 47 neutral) on and seeing the results; I can definitely say that this foundation is honestly my favourite foundation out of any cosmetics brand so far!! I am absolutely in love with the foundation, a little drop goes a long way with this product and I love that so much. It definitely felt like I had no makeup on whatsoever. I also love the packaging it’s very cute!! This foundation is full coverage, buildable, it doesn’t leave my skin looking cakey, long wear, and high pigment. I definitely recommend this foundation, I am definitely going to be getting more once I run out!!

Review for: 53 Medium - Warm Undertone more...
The coverage is great and it’s truly transfer resistant proof. It says it’s 24 hour wear but I find it starts to separate and settle into my fine lines by the 5th or 6th hour.

The foundation does dry fast, so when applying you got to be quick! Despite that; it’s easy to apply, the coverage is buildable and it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin. It’s a matte finish without making your face look flat.

I really enjoyed this foundation and will be using it until I finish the bottle! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Review for: Medium 53 Neutral more...
This is my holy grail foundation ! Been using this for about 2 years. It's very long lasting, amazing full coverage but doesn't feel too heavy, and it is so easy to apply !
I have dry skin and it doesn't show any of my dry patches, doesn't settle into any of my fine lines and doesn't move throughout the day - even if I don't set it ! I always look flawless. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
Can not recommend this product enough !

Review for: Light 45 Neutral more...
This foundation is great. Everytime I wear it, people compliment on my skin. I am oily to combo depending on the time of year. It last a whole day at work, I work in retail so I'm constantly unpacking, re merching and on my feet and this holds up pretty good. I do find if I don't set it on a really hot day it can move around slightly but nothing to the point where I need to reapply. The texture is different from any other foundation I have tried, it's a mouse like texture and very easy to apply with a sponge or brush. One thing I do suggest it that go a shade lighter because it does darken up slightly and adjusts to your skin. When I first put it on this colour is slightly pale for me but after about 20 mins it seems to darken slightly.

Review for: Light 41 Neutral more...
One of my favourite foundations..
I received this as a gift for my birthday
I think the coverage is really good, I wasn't expecting the texture of the foundation to be Somewhat tacky so it took some getting used to, I apply this with a brush for the best effect l! With a beauty blender you won't really achieve a flawless finish (in my opinion)
I got the shade light 42 which is quite light and I'm really fair skinned, I think next time I but I'll get a darker shade as the pale shades are super pale. On a side note this foundation lasts all day and can put up with the oiliness of my skin! Love it !x

Ahhh my holy grail and debenhams stocks it!!!
Got colour matched in an NYC sephora two years ago and this is my ride or die.
The range of shades is amazing I have not seen another brand like it.
The pump makes it nice and easy to get it out and not overdo it (estee lauder double wear I'm looking at you gurl).
Because of my small amount of adult acne I like full coverage and this is it! Nothing else comes close to the coverage of this.
I apply with a kabuki brush as a beauty blender gives it a more sheer effect.
Love love love this cannot live without!

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?
