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.

full coverage
Stays all day
Cheap in price

Can look cakey if your skincare isn't right
Looks drying
Overtime it dehydrates your skin
Very thick

I like this foundation but if you're not hydrated - then forget it.

Great coverage, it is a bit heavy than other foundations. But it works great covering redness and dark circles that you wouldn't need to apply concealer. I wouldn't recommend it for everyday wear. A little goes a long way.

It has amazing coverage! However, if you have dry skin it can show your dry patches. It blends out very smoothly and covers all pigmentation. There is a great shade range so likely you would be able to find a color for you.

The product was well but after a day of sitting in class i would end up with foundation all over my hands and clothes. Even with a power foundation over top it would rub off. The finish was matte and the color matches well.

This is a great product for those who are looking for a full coverage foundation. I find it works best with a beauty blender or by stippling. Great for in the winter

So I’m torn, when I first used this I rebought it about 4 times. Then out of no where my skin reacted weird. It started separating throughout the day, even friends of mine asked if it was being weird on their skin to. I’m wondering if the formula changed at all?

KVD lock it foundation was my very FIRST liquid foundation. I always reached for powders but one day I decided to try something new out and this was what I fell for, gives you a good amount of coverage and controls my oils!

KVD products are great and this is not an exception, however I have a few callouts that you may want to consider. This foundation is quite heavy and I wouldn't want to use it every day. Here's my pro / con list:
(+) Really full coverage
(+) Smudge-free formula
(+) Good staying power

(-) Difficult to blend
(-) Shade selection is a bit limited
(-) Cakey formula after few hours
(-) Subtle fragrance
(-) Drying formula / flaking

When using this, you need to apply moisturizer and primer, otherwise the foundation will cake and look too heavy. Also, the shades are mostly warm and it's hard to find a matching shade for pale skin: #42 is too light and #44 is waaaay too warm. I use #42 and add some darker loose powder to look more alive. Overall, it's a decent product but takes a lot of work to make it look good!

I really enjoyed my Lock it foundation by KVD. It was easy to blend and was very highly pigmented. It also wore well on my oily skin although I would find myself powdering throughout the day to keep the oil at bay. I would suggest it to others but it did oxidize on me after a while.

Great foundation if you're looking for a full coverage foundation! This covers everything! It goes on easily and doesn't drop off. This will last all day and will not finish the day looking as greasy as most other products.

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?
