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.

I bought this foundation and the primer .. First of all, I have to say its coverage is AMAZING! I love that you don't have to use a lot of product and it feels light on your face and not at all sticky or cakey like others I've tried. But I did have a lot of trouble finding my shade it was either too light or too pink on me. So if you are able to find you're shade give it a try. I'm sure you'd love it as much as I did

One of my top foundations! I like the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation because it really does stay on for a long time! I was able to easily find my color match. I have combination skin and it works really well! I have noticed that is it not great for those with larger pores! Overall, I will definitely keep buying this!

The pros: lots of coverage, super matte finish, pretty cheap. The cons: pretty thick to apply, looked like a mask!!!! I hated how this foundation looked on my face; couldn't even keep it on long enough to see how long wearing it is. It also smells like paint. 3 stars because it didn't work for me, but I could see it working for someone else.

This is my FAVORITE full coverage foundation! To get the right results, you need to use the lock it primer. If you use any other primer, the foundation will not preform as promised. The color selection is also awesome! I was able to find my exact shade without any problems! This is seriously the best full coverage foundation I've ever used!

This is by far my favorite foundation mainly becuase they actually have my exact color. Its a great foundation if you want full coverage (it might be a little thick for some people) and it lasts all day but it isn't perfect. There have been times where I had cracking around my mouth and the sides of my nose so a good setting spray is a must.

If there is a brand that I ADORE and could continue to write forever on it would be Kat Von D!!! From foundation to lipstick to anything and everything is great about this brand. Since I do have oily skin this has been by far my go to foundation for parties and important events. It gives amazing coverage with so little product. It is a bit on the more expensive side but it is complete worth it!!!!!

Very dry and chalky. I have to use a lot of it to avoid that, so its not great for the winter, or for more natural looks. Its also really heavy, so I suggest cutting it with a BB cream. However if you are very fair, this is one of the few brands that carries that really light ivory.

I love most of Kat Von D's products due to color variety and quality but this foundation was not for me. I have naturally dry skin and I believe that this is meant for oily skin because it was very "cakey" on me. The coverage, although, is amazing. Covered my entire facial blemishes.

OMG this foundation is amazing! I should've tried this when it first came out. The formula and consistency is great! It locks in and stays in place all day. Literally flawless all day. I have oily skin and it's always been so hard to find a foundation that just doesn't melt by midday. Finally found a foundation that satisfies my oil needs!

I love the packaging of this product. It's also my perfect shade, but something happens after a few hours of wearing this! It starts to separate and look awful on my skin. It probably works well on other skin types but definitely not for me.

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?
