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.

Not the best foundation for dry skin. I bought this because i was really exciting to see how much it covers but i was really disappointed because i hate the finish and the feel it gives to my skin. It highlights all my texture and set on my dry patches so bad! Don't get me wrong, it is very full coverage and i think it would work perfectly for oily skin types!

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.

This foundation is the bomb! I have keratosis pelarsis (constantly red and bumpy skin). I need full coverage and this does the job. A little goes a long way - 2 to 3 drops covers my entire face. It’s easy to apply with a brush or sponge, and it’s buildable. It is a heavyweight foundation, but stays on until you need to take it off. It is a little drying as well. I’ve had to modify my skin care routine. But it’s worth it.

I bought this to cover up for a hand tattoo so I could take engagement pictures. The lady at the store stated it was the best quality for cover up. I was skeptical with paying 40 plus dollars but I took her word for it. Needless to say it took five plus attempts to cover my tattoo and by that time the look was a clumped up look that was very unsatisfied with.

I AM OBSESSED with this foundation!!!!  I have looked for such a long time for something that provides FULL coverage, but doesn't feel heavy or caked on, and this definitely does the job. It gives my face a flawless finish (which is NOT easy) but it looks and feels like I'm just wearing tinted moisturizer. More than that, it lasts ALL DAY, even in the hot and humid Florida weather, after being outside all day! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

When first trying out this product I hated it. My skin was chalky and it seemed to break after just a few hour but once they had reformulated this foundation it was like heaven on earth for my face. It was hydrating and not drying like the previous one. It has a flawless finish and last all day. It is a high coverage foundation and recommend everyone try it

This formula does work very good and lasts all day, it is buildable coverage. The only thing i didn't like is the price you pay, honestly for that price you can go to Walmart and get FitMe foundation that works pretty much just as good and 10 other things haha.

The only reason why this foundation isn't getting a 5 is how it feels so heavy and oily on my skin. It's hard dealing with such a heavy foundation, and while it's bearable during the winter it's impossible during the summer. But it does it's job and it will hide anything that you need it too and in that it's a good foundation if you want to do a full beat.

If you're looking for full all day coverage the Lock-it foundation is perfect. It's blendable but not buildable and I'm okay with that. There are various color tones which is a plus because it is hard for me to find a perfect shade ! Since I first purchased when it came out I have used no others when it comes to full coverage !

I don’t like this foundation at all. It’s super thick and smells like paint. I gave it a extra star because it is what it says it is, super full coverage and covers literally anything. But, it creases really bad even when set right away with setting powder. It always just ends up looking extremely cakey. It’s expensive but it comes with a lot of 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?
