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.

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!

So I bought the Kat Von D lock it foundation and it was really good!! I have combination skin but it felt very cakey. I did like the way it applied on my skin with a beauty blender. I would buy this product again!! It was full coverage.

I love this foundation. It is full coverage like it says. My only complaint is that I have an oily t-zone and it doesn't control the oil very well like it says but it does do better than others that claim to do the same. It is easy to apply and not thick and heavy like most full coverage foundations. I would definitely buy it again.

If you need a long lasting matte foundation this is it I really love this foundation and it's not too pricey like other high end foundations. The only thing is to try before you buy because it might not look like the same color as it does in the packaging

This has very good coverage, with just one pump it covered most of the acne scars and redness. However even with the extremely oily skin, it still feels drying and it doesn't "become one" with your skin, it just sits on top. I totally get the whole “sheer coverage” thing when it comes to foundation, and frequently, that’s exactly what I want. However, there are many times when what I want is full coverage – I’m talking balls out, totally smooth, completely uniform, no red marks, no red cheeks, pedal to the metal, maximum coverage. The problem is, it’s always been hard for me to find a full coverage foundation that doesn’t dry out my skin or make me look like I’ve just smeared spackle all over my face. Well, those days are over. Someone has finally made the perfect full coverage foundation, and that someone is Kat Von D. Yes, Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation is the answer to all of my blotchy-faced problems.

One of my favorite heavy duty foundations! Very thick and paste like so I mix primer with it but it covers up my pale red skin really well. Pricey but absolutely worth it and long lasting. One pump will be enough product for my whole face.

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?
