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.

I cannot remember my exact colour, sorry! I ended up returning it. It is an INSANELY matte finish, like ... too matte. I am a very oily skin and even still I couldn't handle it. I will say that for a full coverage matte foundation it doesn't feel as heavy as many others but any spot of dehydration it would cling to and texturize making my skin look like the Sahara desert in that spot even though the rest of me is so oily! I debated mixing it with Smashbox Primer Oil or a moisturizer to reduce the matte finish which worked fairly well but I don't want to have to mix something every day just for it to apply nicely and ended up returning it.

I'm not sure how I feel about this as I prefer a medium coverage and this foundation offers more of a full coverage. I have oily skin and I feel as if it clogs up my skin over time, however I don't have any pimple breakout after using it. It feels like a mask over my face, and I feel that it may be too heavy for my skin (I'm 20). On a positive note, this creates a perfect base for photoshoots which require flash as there are no flashbacks from this foundation.

Pretty solid foundation. Its not as good at staying matte as my MUFE is but a little goes a long way, coverage is good and I only end up a little shiny by the end of the day.

I recently purchased this foundation after all the hype. I noticed that the product is extremely thick, & as listening to others saying a little goes along way i tried a pump and for some reason it was extremely hard to blend. I use a beauty blender for my foundation and it sucked to blend, so i used a brush and again quite hard. So i used more product which ended caking me up. I have combo skin so I'm not sure if others with my skin type have had this problem too. Coverage is great doesn't leave you blotchy but i noticed product comes off if i put my hand on my face. :/ Really wish i had some luck with this product :(

I enjoy this foundation. I was colour matched for this in the Oxford Street store when Kat Von D first launched in Debenhams.
The consistency of this foundation is quite thick, it applies best with a brush.
I do like this foundation but I do find that it oxidises and it begins to come darker once it's worn. I use LA Girl foundation in White to mix this and apply it and it works really well together.
The foundation is quite long lasting although it does sometimes get patchy around my nose area.
You do not need a lot of this product and it is quite full coverage, so a bottle of this can last you a good while. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

I am a make up junkie and can honestly say that I LOVE the Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation. It is very full coverage, and makes your face look flawless! However, one thing that I will say, your makeup application will only look as good as your primer! Make sure if you have dry skin you are using a hydration primer to allow the product to go on smoothly. A little product goes a long way as this product is very pigmented! I have used both a foundation brush and a beauty blender and actually found that the beauty blender has a much nicer finish :) would highly recommend this product!

I really wanted to like this, but it was wayyy to matte for my dry skin. Very full coverage, but just looked cakey and heavy on my skin. Maybe better if my skin wasn' so dry. Just not for me.

This foundation has INSANE COVERAGE!!! I bought this foundation before going on roaccutane (acne medication that dries out skin)...when my skin was oily I absolutely LOVED This foundation, however now I have extremely dry skin and I HATE IT! If you have dry skin, don't go anywhere near this!!!

Selling points-
LONG WEARING (it's soooo hard to get off)
Great for oily skin

Hard to remove at the end of the day
Can clog your pores as it is soooo thick

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?
