OK so i wasn't a big fan of this foundation not because i didn't like but because its not my kind of foundation but its a great foundation. I like coverage but this one goes beyond that ! It will literally make your tattoo disappear from anywhere ! LOL ! It is SUPER HIGH COVERAGE !!! If thats what you want then this is the foundation for you ! I do have some acne spot and stuff like that but its not that bad. When i put this on i kinda felt like a different person i have a few scars and ugh they vanished , and its thick and heavy and I have pretty sensitive skin so i can feel everything on my skin even to an eye lash so i felt awkward when i had it on ! I didn't get any pimples or rashes or anything like that i just didn't like the fact that i could feel the foundation on me . I wish she had a light weight formula with almost the same coverage !! I LOVE KAT VON D THOUGH 😘

Even though it has a wide range of shades I was still stuck between shades, the first being too pale and yellow base, and the third shade being too dark. It's full coverage but the texture feels heavy on the face as its a thick consistency.

This was one of my first high end foundations and I really love it! If you’re into super full coverage foundation then this is for you. I used to wear this when I had really bad acne and it covered it right up. Really love it and recommend.

Great full coverage foundation at a decent price. It's easy to apply and goes on smooth. The pump gets all the product out so you get your money's worth too. It's full coverage so it's a bit heavy, but it looks flawless and stays on so well

The Lock It Foundation overall is a pretty good liquid foundation. It is full coverage and good for oily skin. Just make sure to not apply too much, as it does tend to get pretty cakey if too much is applied seeing as how it is very thick.

Anytime anyone ever asks me about what foundation they should use, I always recommend Kat Von D's lock-it Tattoo foundation. I've been using it for about 2 years now and it is perfect. It covers ALL of my facial imperfections, and I have even used it on some clients of mine in the past to cover up tattoos, and it works like a charm. I would never imagine trying to switch over to another brand. Cruelty-free, and amazing....I use it everyday and just using the foundation by itself is amazing because it just makes such a significant difference on my face. It looks brighter, fresher, and amazing overall. I look flawless in it. And it's not a heavy foundation at all-when I want to use it to go out at night, I like to add extra foundation and make myself look like porcelain. Still feels light and isn't gross. Doesn't cause breakouts. I hope this stuff stays on the market for good!

Definitely full coverage. It feels lightweight at first but heavy throughout the day. It can tend to get oily and break apart around where you might get oily. I need to keep blotting even though I have that are set. I notice when I apply powder on top it tends to look even cakier. I'm not a big fan but it may work out for some people.

Definitely one of my favorites as I have tried a bunch. It has great coverage and it stays matte all day long. I only have to use one pump to cover my whole face, as a little goes a long way! Try it out next time as it is much recommended.

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?
