Review for: Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation - Full Coverage, Liquid NET Wt 1.0 Fl. Oz / 30ml (Light 49 - light to medium complexion with golden undertone) more...
I tried this foundation at Sephora because I was looking for a full coverage foundation so they suggested this to me.
It was full coverage as they said it would be and it covered my dark under eye circles.
My big complaint was how cakey it was. I was more self conscious about how much makeup was visible on my face then I was to begin with.

This foundation is meant to be used for normal to oily skin types. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with dry skin because it is an ultra matte foundation. Also, you want to make sure your skin is well prepped and hydrated before using this, so the foundation doesn't appear dry or flakey in certain areas of the face (lines, wrinkles, etc)

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

I don’t use it as foundation because it’s way too thick. I tried to sheer it down and it’s still too thick for my liking. If you’re into that super full coverage stage makeup look, this is for you. I’m not into that so I actually use it as a tattoo cover up for my ultra conservative family events. Works like a dream for that.

I absolutely love this foundation. It is very high coverage and you can feel it on your face, but I personally don't mind that. It is long lasting, not too matte but doesn't make me a shiny mess. I have pretty bad acne and it covers amazingly. I would definitely buy this product again.

I've used this foundation off an on for the past few years - I like it, but I can't say that I love it. It is VERY heavy, which is fine for some people, but the coverage on me isn't that great. I do love KVD products though, just not a huge fan of this foundation.

This is my #1 foundation choice.. I've been using this foundation for years and I will never go back.. this product is very pigmented but very full coverage.. It goes on best when applied with a damp beauty blender. It stays on literally all day.. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a very full coverage foundation.

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!

This is the only foundation I will buy. I personally love almost all of kay Von D's products. This foundation is so light and covers absolutely everything with just a small amount. One pump of this foundation and it covers your whole face. It also blend perfectly. I never have any problems with blending like I have had with other brands.

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?
