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:

- Synthetic Fragrances

This foundation has been formulated to work synergistically with Kat's Rehab Priming Elixir, Tattoo Concealer, and Lock 'N Load Setting Mist.

If you need to cover any imperfections up— this is a go to foundation. It is 100% full coverage. I have a pretty good complexion though so i do not use it anymore.

Very thick and super full coverage. It’s a good
Consistently and will last since you don’t need a lot. If you are looking for a full coverage definitely a good choice.

This is my go-to "going out" foundation! I wear  COVERGIRL Clean Matte BB Cream most days, but I wear KVD Lock-It when I really want to look flawless! It has a perfect matte finish that doesn't make me look too flat/dull. I also will sometimes use this foundation to add extra coverage to certain parts of my skin when I'm wearing a BB Cream! It's a great way to save money by only using a tiny bit of the more expensive foundation, only where you need full coverage. I love the shade range this foundation comes in - I was easily able to find a shade that suits me, including the undertone. I always set this with RCMA No Color Powder and I stay matte all day! Love this foundation for full-glam days and nights.

This is the product I've been using for years. I've seen it through its packaging transformation and I like the new look though I don't feel like the product changed, which is a good thing! It's just the right amount of heavy coverage, because it doesn't feel heavy. The price is middle of the road but the bottle lasts you forever because the pump system doesn't waste any product and you can be careful about how much you dispense. I use two shades, one for my summer skin and one for my winter skin. I have yet to find a foundation I like better than this one!

I was super disappointed with this product, it makes my skin look really gross after just a few hours, getting really greasy and shiny. Not impressed and won't buy again.

I had heard such mixed reviews I was a tad nervous about ordering this. But I love KVD products so I just had to take the risk. And I am so happy I did.

This foundation is incredible! Only a couple pumps covered my whole face FULLY. It blended out smoothly and looked absolutely flawless. It’s one of the first foundations that didn’t sink into my pores, or melt off of my nose. It’s absolutely perfect!

I absolutely love this foundation! Kat Von D has managed to create a heavily pigmented foundation that, when used with the finishing powder, has a long staying matte finish. I do believe this is better for oily skin, I've used this a few times on others who have dryer skin and the foundation has oxidized quicker on them. I will also say that this product line definitely needs to be used with each other. I have found that using the foundation and then another company's powder to set it, will cause odd coloring and oxidization. Kind of a bummer when you don't have time to run out and buy a new powder, but not a deal breaker in the least. In short, this foundation has been my personal go-to for years and will probably stay that way

Great coverage, breathable and not heavy!!! It is matte, however it doesn’t stop oils from coming through if oiliness is an issue for you. You only need one pump to cover! Love this foundation.

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?

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?
