I really like this product. It wears nicely all day even if you're out and about. Wore it on my 21st birthday on a wine walk and it stayed on beautifully all day. I've worn it so many times since and I am in love with it. I do like the way it looks when applied with a beauty blender better than a brush though. I've read that kat herself says she also likes the look when applied with a beauty blender. A+ product.

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
I received a sample from Sephora to try.  I love the full coverage.  I hardly used any foundation to cover my dark spots, that is a huge plus.  
I used moisturizer and Benefit Poprofessional before applying Kat Von D and after 2 hours, the foundation settled into all my pores and fine lines.  I removed it and tried my DDF primer, better but not by much.  I did notice after 8 hours my natural oils mixed and it looked better but I did not like the feel of this foundation.
It is thick formula, but not so heavy on the face.  
Pro:  full coverage and a little goes long way.  The price is decent, but this will last a long time so the price is not something I would consider.
Con:  settled into my fine lines, smile lines, and my pores were exaggerated worse than EL DW.  I looked dull.

I use Neutral 44 and sometimes 45 and I mix them together. I am super light skinned and have a few acne scars on my face and it absolutely kills me if you can see them through my makeup. This foundation covers everything and I mean everything! It legit can cover a tattoo without problem or layering the applications! It is smooth and might feel a bit heavy if your not used to foundation, but the feeling quickly subsides when you apply some loose powder to set it in place. Its worth every dollar and I since it came out I haven't used a foundation as much as I use this one! I keep going back to this coverup because it covers everything up!

This foundation helped me regain my confidence when my acne was at its absolute worst. I remember on Christmas Eve I was sitting in my room crying my eyes out because I didn't want to show my face to all my family. This foundation does SUCH an amazing job covering absolutely every imperfection, my confidence that night was completely restored. I've used this foundation for a little over a year now and I still haven't run out of product because a little goes a long way. My one con with this foundation is how quickly it dries on your skin. I have to do one half of my face at a time before it starts to dry and gets harder to blend out.

First, the coverage is absolutely amazing, it is highly pigmented! I would recommend applying with a beauty blender because it can get a bit cakey if you're not careful. A little goes a long way. It gives a nice matte finish, I always get complimented when I wear it. The only downside is that it oxidized on me, so it turned slightly orange after some hours of wear.

Review for: Medium 64 more...
I don't know how to exactly start this other than i have a love hate for this product. I have have oily skin and decided to give the kat von d lock it foundation a shot. I loved it because it had a full coverage on the days where i felt like wearing a full face of makeup. Then again i hated it because it would look very cakey on my face and even though i was oily for some reason i had dry patches in parts of my face which i really did not like. Don't get me wrong it was a really good foundation its just not for me if the dry patches hadn't have happened it would have been one of my fav foundation. Although her concealer is the bomb!

Review for: Light 41 Neutral more...
I used Kat v D lock it foundation for about a year straight. It did a great job of covering up everything which is why I gravitated to it I tend to prefer full coverage foundations and full coverage it was. I have combo oily skin that is acne prone and it covered everything up while looking smooth and airbrushed mind you that it doesn't look like your skin but better that's a sheer foundation look. So if u like full coverage you'll love it it's long lasting as well. I have a small tattoo on my face near my temple and when I wanted to cover it I wld wear this and I still do I tend to mix my perfect foundation n lock it is in that mixture.

This foundation is the holy grail of foundations. I have very oily skin and have struggled in the past to find something that stays put on my face all day. It has a flawless matte finish and is a great foundation on which to build (bronzer, eyeshadow, etc). This foundation disappears into my skin tone, and with a wide array of colors to choose from, it is almost impossible to miss a match. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this product. It is my beauty MUST.

This foundation is a full coverage. If you need to hide anything, this foundation is the one you need to get. A little goes a long way and if you put a lot your face will get cakey!

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?
