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 is one of my all time full coverage foundations! it really does cover up imperfections very well. My skin feels flawless even after a few hours since it lasts all day long. This formula sets quickly but you can blend it long enough to blend well. A little goes a long way and can be built up if needed. Too much can cause cakeyness though. The bottle is very unique and different. The bottle prevents any makeup to be wasted since it pushes up and pumps out in small amounts. I always have two shades on hand that I have repurchased a few times.

I tried this foundation at Sephora and OH EM GEE it is so full coverage. A tiny amount could cover my entire hand. This is super thick and heavy. FULL FULL coverage. It would be awesome for covering up darkness, redness, or even tattoos. Seems like a little goes a long way.

I think the formula has changed a bit since I’ve used this but this is a full full coverage foundation. This stuff doesn’t move. Great for covering tattoos as well because of how much coverage it gives. It is matte and if you have dry skin maybe not the best choice.

I really wanted to love Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation but unfortunately not only was the shade waaaaay to light for me, but it just kept smearing across my face and not blending into my skin correctly.
I do however, like Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème even though that shade was super light also it pleasantly covered my dark circles and topped with a darker powder it looked absolutely perfect 👍🏻👍🏻

Review for: 72 Deep - Cool Undertone more...
I have hyper pigmentation, mild acne and oily skin! For years I’ve looked for a foundation that would cover all my problem areas without having to pile on the product! Although this is full coverage I never feel caked on. Im actually wearing it as I’m writing the review. This is my go to foundation hands down and I’ve been wearing it for about 3-4 years. I’m sad that they discontinued my shade. My last purchase was on eBay for this product one day I won’t be able to find my shade anymore I’ve even DM’d Kat on IG about bringing this shade back. If anyone sees this review tell Kat to bring back my shade I’m desperate!

Sometimes looks cakey. Great coverage, easy to apply with the Kat Vom D foundation brush, even easier if you evenly apply plenty of primer beforehand. Bottle lasts a long time because just a little bit of product goes a long way. Dries quickly though so definitely should be blended soon after applying to skin.

This is an amazing foundation it is very full coverage but it is also very drying! I would suggest using the Estée Lauder foundation all over and where you need extra coverage such as on acne or places where your foundation tends to sweat off or on your pores to put the kat von d foundation as the second layer it would provide beyond full proof coverage but will not look cakey!!!

Review for: 57 Medium-Warm Undertone more...
If I could give negative stars i would. I have really dry skin and don’t recommend this for others with dry skin. It’s too thick and creases under my eyes and separates on all my dry patches. Plus it oxidizes so bad. Worst foundation I’ve ever tried, hands down.

First I would like to say that this product has amazing coverage! It was beautiful when I used it and I really liked how easy and smooth it was to apply.
The only issue I have is the pump action. The pump gave up on my bottle and I was unable
To get in to use the rest of my product and I still had quite a lot left! It was a newer purchase and I was upset to find that the pump action fell so quickly. I enjoy the product but hope for a better packaging

One of the most amazing full coverage foundations that is definitely a top 3 on my list ! The finish is stunningly semi matte and can even cover the darkest tattoos. It’s extremely longwearing and I would definitely buy over and over again it’s a staple 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?
