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.

- 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 tried a sample of this from Sephora after hearing a lot of hype.
I have dry skin with moderate dry patches and it seemed to cling to some of the dry areas after a couple of areas.
I am not one who looks for full coverage so I put a little bit of this on and blended but it still looked cakey on me.
While it was a nice shade match (finally), and it is vegan, I can't get on board.

Honestly.... I hate it. I thought it would be amazing so I bought the whole thing after getting matched in sephora. It is really full coverage but is incredibly cakey and settles into every line and crevice on my face. You could probably add a little to your normal foundation to add coverage but I'd be very careful to avoid the cakeiness and separation. Would not buy again.

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is a good product. I personally believe it’s maybe just a little to cakey for me but really does cover awesome! It has awesome coverage. I never could find my perfect shade in this foundation but it also might just be my skin tone because it changes a lot. I do usually mix it with other foundations because it sometimes I feel like if I put to much it makes me feel really cakey and unnatural.

Okay this product is honestly amazing. Maybe not for a everyday unless you just do a full face of makeup everyday. But this product is absolutely amazing. Flawless finish. But must warn the makeup lovers that want that see through finish (natural look) this isn’t the foundation for you! This foundations goal was to cover up tattoos. It’s amazing. I have quite a few freckles and it completely covers them, I love my freckles, but I can’t say that I didn’t love this foundation and the work I did with it! 100% RECOMMEND!

I first used this with a brush and hated it, then I used it with a beauty blender and almost liked it. The coverage is great and the product is build able if needed but ends up being very caked on and mask like. What I did not love about the product was later in the day it seemed to settle into my creases and started to break apart. The cost is great at $35 but not for me.

After all the foundations I've come across, I believe this is my number one go to, I fell I love with the foundation because of the high pigments, how a little bit goes a long way. Love the way it sets on my face and lasts all day, without making my face look shiny by the end of the day. Also I love the fact that I don't even have to use concealer because It has amazing coverage. The packing is by far the cutest and easiest to use.

This foundation is my life!! I have acne scars from hormonal acne after having my 4 kids, and this foundation provides the best coverage I've ever had with a foundation!!! It goes on smooth and doesn't feel heavy for the amount of coverage it provides! I love all of Kat Von D's products!

Review for: Deep 74 more...
this is actual gold. this is one of he BEST mattifying yet flawless foundations i've ever tried. i used this for prom and my skin looked so airbrushed and so amazing especially since i have issues with dark spots. i'm even more so impressed with the price ($35) compared to other high end foundations. the only thing about this foundation is that you have to work quickly when blending because it dries down super quick and a little bit goes a VERY long way because it's easy for things to get cakey. i feel you have a special event i recommend only using this foundation for those occasions.

Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
I searched this foundation on purpose. To tell all of you how amazing it is. It has a matte finish, so for my oily skin that’s amazing. A little goes a long way with Kats foundation. It has buildable coverage and you can keep it light if need be. It lasted me almost a year and I was shocked it was still good after 11 months. I would absolutely recommend and buy again!

This foundation covers everything! It is very full coverage and personally I like applied with a damp beauty blender (because I have dry skin.) I use a luminous primer underneath and it goes on beautifully!

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?
