The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance.

I wanted to LOVE this product!  I adore KVD, and I admire her brand's approach to veganism and cruelty-free makeup.  However, this foundation just isn't for me.  Its super heavy and full coverage, which isn't a big issue, but it didn't perform well on my dry skin.  If you have normal to oily skin, you will probably love this, though!

I have struggled to find the perfect foundation and this one has taken the win! It's FULL coverage, feels like nothing is on my face, and looks so smooth. I apply using a damp beauty blender, and use maybe two pumps mixed with two drops of an illuminating liquid. It is the perfect combo to create a glowy, full coverage canvas. If you have oily skin, this is the foundation for you. I have extremely oily skin and so I was looking for a matte finish foundation that was full coverage, but didn't look too cakey, and this one matched all of that.. mixing it with the illuminating liquid sounds a little extra but this foundation is actually so matte that it doesn't even look like my skin is oily when I put it on, so the liquid makes it like a PERFECT, natural, dewy but not too dewy, flawless finish.

Love this foundation I have been wearing it for over a year I repurchased this product , I feel that it is best to build up the product to the desired coverage as it can be hard to blend if you use to much. The coverage is great and wears long. I also recommend using a primer or moisturizer first then apply in thin layers to get desired coverage it makes it easier to apply and blend without being patchy and streaky but still allows for a full coverage look

I fell in love with this product after first use, and it continues to impress me after each use! I personally like full coverage and matte finish foundations - which this foundation is both. I only need a tiny bit of foundation for my entire face. I also like to add a pump of this to other foundations to add more coverage. It lasts all day, with use of a primer. I have very oiley skin and only after extreme long wear (9+ hours) do I notice my natural oils peaking through. I will continue to purchase this foundation!!

This foundation is great for full coverage ! I love using this foundation on my clients to cover up any acne scars &/or tattoo’s !!! I also recommend this foundation to anyone who has Very oily skin ! If you do I would definitely recommend her primer as well to help give the matte look and control the oils ! I use this foundation typically during the summer because i tend to be more oily around that time of year. I don’t recommend it for those who tend to be more acne prone; due to it being a heavier coverage and I’ve seen it create more breakouts. But, if you are that person who is looking for a matte & full coverage look this foundation would be a great match !

I'm always nervous with full coverage foundations that they'll leave my face looking cakey but this one left my face looking flawless. I have acne, redness and un even skin tone and it's hard to find foundations that cover all of my needs. But this one was able too. It made my acne nearly invisible, covered up my redness and evened out my skin tone. This foundation is perfect for special events like weddings, parties or anything really, it stays in place all day. I like to use the Lock it setting powder and spray to keep it all together. I do think this is a lot of coverage for everyday use and I did find it caused me to breakout a little but still a great product

Kat Von D Lock it foundation, 24hour wear, full coverage, build able, transfer resistance matte finish and can pretty much cover a tattoo as you can see that's my son Danes name and I put one drop and blended out, if I add another drop or two I'm sure no one would see the tattoo all together! Formula is a bit thicker but I like that, and it dries fast so got to be a bit fast when applying besides that I love this product! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

This is by far, the fullest coverage foundation I have ever tried. I really enjoy wearing this foundation but only for when I need my face to look flawless while lasting more than nine hours. It's not a foundation I would wear just for a day that I'm shopping and not doing much just cause it is heavy on the face. If you don't wear a primer with this, then the foundation will settle into your fine lines and be VERY noticeable. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

This is hands down the best foundation I've ever used! The color matches my skin perfectly even thou I'm super pale. If you're not sure which color you are, go to Sephora and have them color match you with their computer. The foundation is a little on the pricey side for me but a little goes a longgggg way so it's totally worth it for the quality and quantity of the product. I find the foundation sets better if I use a face primer first. I like the primer by Becca the best. Then set it with a translucent powder and you're set!

I love this foundation its one of my daily foundations very light weight, easy to blend super smooth. I have oil/combination skin and this is incredible however it can at times cling to dry patches if you do not exfoliate.

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?
