This is my going out, last all night, full coverage go to makeup. This foundation lasts like a dream. I can dive into a pool with it and it will still look perfect on my face. I do have to hydrate my face very well prior to applying it or else it will look a bit cakey and thick looking on the skin. There a wide range of shades and undertones which I love since I'm more of a yellow undertone and it's sometimes hard to find. I haven't used a full bottle yet since i use it only for special occasions but I will for sure repurchase when this one starts running low.

Honestly this foundation is love/hate for me. Lately it has been love, but there are some days where it looks so thicky and nasty looking that I have to wash my face and just use powder. My skin is combination, so it does cling to my pores in some of my dryer areas like on my chin and the side of my nose. If my BB is super wet it applies better than when I use a makeup brush. And when I combine it with the Lock-it Concealer and the Sculpt contour palette it works amazingly well together and everything blends perfectly.

This is a foundation that always stays in my collection I have oily combination skin and when I have huge break outs I love this this foundation hides it so well and my makeup stays in place and locked in so to speak this makeup last all day and then some. It's a full coverage foundation and if you don't mind that then it's great! I also love that a little goes a long way my bottle last me anywhere from 6-8 months even when I've used it every day as well as reapplication. Hands done my all time favorite!!!!❤️❤️❤️

This foundation is amazing for full coverage with only one drawback.

If you have anything at all that needs to be covered and concealed without worry this foundation is an answer to your dreams

It covers up all my imperfections. I would have given anything to have this when I was a teen with acne

The one thing that I don't like is it creases where I smile and move my forehead.

What I did was dilute the full coverage with my primer to stop that. Since taken care of my skin. Getting into skincare full force, I don't need full coverage anymore. So this option works for me.

I purchased this foundation because of all the hype about it being full coverage ! Now ... the great thing about this foundation is that it IS full coverage as it claims . The thing I disliked about it was that it was extremely heavy and caused me to break out . The formula was just so thick and made me look very cakey . I love KVD but I would not purchase this product again

This was my to go to foundation. You didn't need a lot because the coverage was great. It stayed on all day, but I did have one problem with it. My skin has a yellow tint to it instead of an orange tint. So it didn't match my skin tone that well, but even when I picked the closest color by the end of the day the foundation would turn orange. If they fixed that problem I would go back to this foundation.

This is possibly my least favorite foundation I have ever used! Although the coverage is really great, it is extremely thick, almost unbearable thick. Only a little and you will get a long wear, full coverage finish. For the price I personally don't think it it was worth it. I ended up having to give it to my friend because I was highly allergic too it. My entire face was itchy and my eyes swelled up. I wanted to rip my face off, it was that itchy. Even if I was not allergic, I wouldn't recommend it, wayyyyy to heavy!

I really like this Kat Von D Lock it tattoo foundation.  It has amazing full coverage and it applies pretty nicely.  My only downfall to it is I can only wear it in the winter or when I know I will be inside because outside in the natural light it is just too thick and looks cakey.  I guess that is because it is such a full coverage foundation but I prefer a more natural look in the light.  Overall it is a great foundation and I have oily and sensitive skin which it didn't irritate at all.

Omg, this stuff! Wow!! The most full coverage foundation I've ever tried. Along with full cover, this stuff is thick! As far as an every day foundation, Id say you better have some good face wash as well. This is great for photos and nights out, I just think for more sensitive skin it might cause issues as a daily foundation. I'm a full coverage girl and I love it, I just seem to have a hard time matching my skin tone. I've tried 2 shades and they still aren't perfect matches. I mix 2 shades and that seems to work. One pump will cover the face and I love the airless pump so you don't waste any product.

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?
