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.

This foundation is AMAZING at covering up everything on your face: marks, pimples, scars. Unfortunately, every time I would apply it I would get a new cystic bump. I loved the coverage but my skin didn’t agree with it.

I hate this foundation. Like actually hate it. I love all other kat von d products, and I really wanted to make this one work, but it just didn't work out. It's way too thick, it doesn't blend well, and it sinks into my pores no matter what primer I wear. I don't mind a cake face, but this is too much for me

Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo foundation is my favorite. Great for my oily skin when combined with a good primer and setting spray. It holds all day long and has a nice matte, full coverage. If you are looking for a foundation that completely covers and give a great canvas for the rest of your makeup, I completely recommend this!

Love love love! It’s a heavier foundation for when you’re going to be out all night. It doesn’t budge. I love how it looks when I take selfies. It covers all my acne scars and if I want to cover my collarbone tattoo for a fancy dinner, it actually hides it!

The best thing about this foundation hands down is the shade. I absolutely love pale and neutral this foundation is. Unfortunately, it's extremely heavy and cakey on me. If you have dry skin RUN AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. Even if you have normal skin I personally would not recommend it, but everyone is different!

A lot of people love this but it did not work for me.
Pros: Wide range of shades
Truly full coverage
Cons: oxidizes
Breaks up & becomes patchy on my nose pretty quickly even with primer
Easy to use too much and become cakey

SUPPPERRR FULL COVERAGE! It really is a great foundation but it the only down fall is its cakyness. It's just so think and noticably think that it's hard to love. But other than that it's full coverage, has a lot of shades, and it's made with love and passion.

So iv been using the lock-it foundation for a little over 4 years now and I absolutely love it. I have oily skin and I needed my foundation to stay for a long time. So this is definitely a go to. Also I have scarring from acne and it is very high coverage. So I would definitely recommend this product!

This is my favorite night on the tin foundation. The coverage is so full and flawless without looking cakey! I use it on a clean moisturised face with too faced primer and it comes out perfectly! It's even easier to work with when contouring with cream because the foundation blends well with creamy substances!

I LOVE THIS. Very matte finish but is very full coverage. If you struggle with scarring on your face and acne it will cover it up completely. But, don't forget skin care is the most important even though this will cover up your acne. This is a staple for me and I recommend to anyone with oily to combo skin!

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?
