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.

Yes it'll give you full coverage but it does not sit well in the face. Does not mix well with my oily skin. Plus it separates on my nose !! Very unflattering foundation, I've applied it with a 'Beauty blender', Real technique Sponge and a brush.

I really wanted to like this foundation. When I first put it on it looks great. I rest my chin on my hand a lot throughout the day so all my foundations have to pass the chin test by not rubbing off; this stuff did. By the end of the day I noticed (as did others) that all my foundation had sunk into my pores, leaving my face looking like it had a really odd texture.

my favorite foundation ever!!! i love this so much. light 44 is an exact match for me. i have normal skin and it works amazing. its so full coverage but isn't super heavy and wears the best out of all my foundations.

I thought I was going to love this foundation, mainly because I love a lot of products from Kat Von D's makeup line. Unfortunately this foundation is way to thick, I don't mind full coverage, but I could not find a way to make this not look cakey, I felt like there was this thick layer of goop on my face. The coverage was amazing but this foundation was not for me.

ALL TIME FAVORITE FOUNDATION. 😍😍😍 Literally my go to for a flawless face. Perfect for oily skin! It's a little thick but not too much to where it looks cakey. I love the smell for some reason. Lasts all freaking day! Ugh my holy grail!!! Highly reccomend!

I like this foundation a lot. I bought it for my tattoos for a special occasion. On my face it’s perfect but on my tattoo I have to color correct first. And do multiple layers and blending and it still comes out orange because theirs just not a tone that matches my skin tone. But the formula is smooth and easy to blend out. So I would definitely recommend it.

I love sheer foundations, but got a sample of this & feel in love with it. It's full coverage, which I don't really go for. The only issue I had was that if you order online, matching your color is a bit hard. I am pale & I got #42 neutral off sephora's website. I had to go to the store & switch for a #44 cool because the one I got online was too light for me

Decided to try this foundation and see what all the fuss was about. It is a full coverage foundation. Had heard mixed reviews as too the formula being too heavy but was pretty pleased with it. Did not feel as heavy on my skin, would not use it for an every day look since i usually go for a light natural. But definitely going to ne trying this out a bit more.

Hate Hate HATE IT! This was the first high in foundation I have ever brought, I tried so hard to love it. No matter how I apply it, how much or how little it. was. ALWAYS. cakey! It is okay ( and by okay I mean I use it ) with I mix it with another thin foundation. I am gonna keep doing that because I spent $35 on it. But I will not be buying this again

I love the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation! There's so many colors! As a pale girl, I'm constantly trying to find foundations light enough for me. This is one of the only foundations I've found that doesn't oxidize and turn me super orange. I love it!

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?
