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.

My skin is combination, but even with moisturizer and using the lock it primer- and using my most moisturizing primer ( too faced poreless primer) the foundation comes.out patchy, and if not patchy it separates quickly, and feels very thick. It clings to any dry spots. I've tried using brushes and beauty blenders to make it work. But its just not happening. I have heard that the formula for my shade ( light 42) has had those issues. But is color march well and doesnt oxidize.

I love this full coverage foundation. I apply with a damp beauty blender and i get even full coverage all day long. Only giving 4 starts because the product does crease easily. I have repurchased multiple times and will continue to do so.

The first time I applied this foundation, i knew it was a match made in heaven! Full coverage but it feels super lightweight! It has a semi dewy/matte finish but i always set with powder. I would definitely recommend everyone go try this!

Normally I just wear a drug store foundation because we ballin on a budget over here but I'm so lucky Influenster sent me this foundation to try for free for exchange for my review!! 

This foundation is thick. Its immediately full coverage but at the cost of being thick. It also smells a little like paint thinner at first but I don't smell it on the skin. As someone who is not used to a full coverage look this is definitely an adjustment but i'm not mad at it

I had some really great experiences with this foundation and also some very negative ones. I used to use this foundation all the time, we are talking at least 3 years! The only downside I ever found with this foundation was on the days that my skin was ultra dry this foundation wouldn't sit on my skin, caked up, and cracked during the day. That being said, as I regulated my skin care routine and got my skins hydration under control, I loved the this gorgeous matte foundation!

i will not lie... this is a very thick, heavy foundation. but it has lots of product, a great color variety for all skin tones, and so much coverage you’ll look like a mannequin. it can be a little hard to blend out if you apply too much.

I’ll never ever buy another foundation! I’ve been searching for the perfect one and I’ve finally found my match. It’s full coverage and I only have to use about two pumps in my Beauty blender together all over coverage. The smell isn’t that bad and it holds well. I work all night and it usually lasts me through a 12 hour overnight at the hospital. People don’t even know I’m wearing foundation which is nice. I LOVE all KVD products honestly.

Review for: Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation - Full Coverage, Liquid NET Wt 1.0 Fl. Oz / 30ml (Medium 53 - light to medium complexion with golden yellow undertone) more...
This is a good foundation if you’re looking for full/thick coverage. I use it on days that I am going to be in front of the camera at work but I could not wear it for every day use. It stays on well, the packaging is cool but bulky, and I’d suggest it to anyone with severe acne.

This was sooo dry and patchy on my skin. It was a matte finish but it was too matte for my skin. It had great coverage and it was very long lasting but it stuck too dry patches and was splotchy on my skin. I don’t recommend this at all.

I love this product. Being a new mom I’m not typically one that has time for face masks but this is so easy, there’s not way you could say no. It’s super easy and effective. I highly recommend these to any parent that needs a skin boost.

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?
