I'm giving the foundation a 4/5 only because of the thickness of the foundation. I'll admit that i put off buying this for awhile, strictly for personal reasons. What I do like about the foundation is the coverage of it, which means that this would last me a long time which i LOVE. It DOES stay on ALL DAY. I found out that it doesn't crease under my eye. Also, if you tend to have oily skin, this stuff keeps the shine at bay it's nice and matte.

This is absolutely the best foundation ever. I love the coverage and how long it last. All you have to use is one pump and your whole face is covered. It's a little pricey but your paying for the quality which is the best. The finish is amazing. Best thing I ever have used.

When I first starting wearing makeup, this foundation was my holy grail. I didn't know about cakiness, lol. I recently re-tried this foundation and instantly scrubbed it off. It accentuated all the fine lines, all the imperfections, it looked cakey, it added texture to my face and made me look like the Sahara Desert. My boyfriend came home, took one look at me and told me never to try this foundation again. It was that bad! The color match was dead on though, and the coverage is definitely full... However, my bottle promptly went in the trash.

This foundation is OK. I used a sample I got from Sephora and then bought the full-size. It is FULL coverage. But it is DRYING. it covered my sins, my transgressions, my former life, my ex boyfriends, etc...but it felt like a desert ok my face after 3 hours, and it did get cakey. But 3 Star for coverage because I think this foundation could cover up a crime if it wanted to. Lol. Oh, and the shade range is 👌🏻

I have a hate/love relationship with this foundation. It’s super full coverage matte foundation and last all day but the only down side is that it’s super heavy! I purchase this and I still have it half full because the fact that it’s super heavy you only need a little bit.

I honestly didn’t need to draw a line down the center of my face.. the results stand out on its own! So happy! I have dry skin & normally full coverage foundations feed into my dry patches but, this foundation didn’t. The concealer was easy to blend and made my under eye look refreshed! I’m really excited to continue to use this product! I can’t believe how flawless this foundation appears on my skin! There is no white cast when taking flash photography. Easy pump bottle,
Foundation: Light 47 Neutral (30mL)
Concealer: Medium 17 Warm (0.22 oz)

Foundation claims: 24- Hour wear, Full coverage, Transfer-Resistance, Matte finish

Concealer claims: 24-Hour wear, crease proof, full coverage, hydrating

I thought is foundation would be amazing for me but I was dead wrong . Not only was it extremely heavy but it made my skin look worse . It’s not made for someone like be who has an uneven skin tone as well as dry skin . It made my flaws more vivid . Too overpriced as well.

This foundation is very full coverage but is not your everyday foundation. You can build it up but it tends to look cakey. It does feel like your actually wearing makeup. Super thick formula and you do have to blend quickly and work with this foundation. It dries very matte. It settles into my smile lines and some fine lines i didnt know i had or noticed with other foundations i have worn. My husband did not like this foundation on me and even told me i looked like a cake face :( not my cup of tea. I will not repurchase as i did not like this product.

This is my one and only go-to foundation now!! Ever since I discovered the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation I never want to use any other foundation! It keeps my skin looking airbrushed and flawless and matches my skin tone so perfectly and there’s so many shades for every skin tone!!!

I was sent the @katvondbeauty lock it foundation complimentary of Influenster and totally fell in love. I was hooked on the concealer by just searching it. The color brightens by under eyes and hides any zits. The foundation took some getting used to, trying to figure out how to best set it. But after that I was hooked! It doesn’t crease and blends beautifully on the skin. It doesn’t break apart (which happens a lot with me). I would highly recommend this product!

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?
