by far one of my favorite foundations in the world ever! amazing for oily skin, full coverage and will easily glide on, sometimes i do find it is a little too thick for my skin on days where i don't have much to cover. i highly recommend this to people with oily skin, and a love for kat von d's products!

It is very hard to find foundation that fits my skin tone as I am very pale, however this was by far the best match out of all my foundations. Of course this product is very expensive but I believe the amount of product and the quality of it is worth all of the money. It’s long lasting and has fairly high coverage. Made my skin glow and I very much recommend!

This foundation is amazing, yet I did expect better! It dries rather quickly, so you have to make sure to blend it to your liking! It also sticks to dry patches as it is a thick foundation, allowing full coverage. The packaging is very pretty and unique, which definitely sticks to the heart of the brand!

Extremely happy, I love this foundation!! Packaging is lightweight and really pretty. It is a heavy foundation and is extremely heavy coverage which is fab for what I'm looking for! It leaves in between a matte and dewy finish. 100% love this and would recommend!! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

These foundations deliver on their promise of full coverage. Along with a matte finish, it can provide a very high-end appearance. It is far too full coverage for me to want to use, but is perfect for those that do. Watch out for applying too much because it can get cakey. My sister used it and loves it.

Horrible foundation! 

I have acne prone skin so I wanted to try a high-end foundation with high coverage but this just felt so heavy on my skin. The foundation feels like a mask on your face.

It starts to break up around your nose and if you take pictures with flash you'll see a white cast.

It is a bomb! Super amazing. The best long lasting foundation for oily skin. Has full coverage. You need to prime your skin well before applying it. It feels a little heavy on skin but not as much as other full coverage foundations. Overall my favourite foundation out of all full coverage ones.

This foundation is the worst foundation I have ever tried, it doesn't last more than 3 hours on my skin before it starts to break down and look flaky and dry. I tried mixing facial oils in with it to make it more oily but nothing helped, I wouldn't recommend to anyone and definitely will not repurchase.

This is by far my most full coverage foundation ever. I mean to be honest it's really pigmented and high coverage so if your face needs a lot of covering this product is for you. When it comes to this, a little goes a long way. The downside of this is that it feels really heavy on the face.

I was very excited when KvD Beauty came to the UK. The packaging is to die for, and it quickly became one of the most loved brand upon release. I needed a new foundation as my dry skin was now in good condition so all my dewy ones were starting to slide off during the warmer weather. I wasn't overly excited about the Estee Lauder Double Wear as I felt the formula had changed so I went to KvD since the hype of the products seemed so good. I was colour matched to Light 45 Neutral as I'm fair but with yellow undertones. As soon I tried the foundation it was different to any other I've tried- it's a very thick texture and you don't need a lot. In fact I was worried how my skin might breakout or feel caked given how thick it actually is, but it doesn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on at all. It blends seamlessly but also very quickly so I have to be fast with my damp beauty blender. I prefer applying it with a damp sponge than a brush as it does blend better but also more flawlessly in my opinion. It's matte about being seriously matte to highlight your lines or dry patches. It really does give a smooth flawless look and I was surprised over the fact that I hadn't given matte foundation a chance sooner! All I can say to you is that they call it "Lock-It" for a reason. I wore this foundation when giving birth to my daughter, and it didn't budge. It still looked amazing after 5 hours of screaming crying sweating sleeping, to push out my little one. I am more than impressed. If this isn't a long wearing foundation, then cement is your next choic.

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?
