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.

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.

This foundation has its pros and cons. Let's start with the pros, because there are fewer. It does have great coverage. If you have blemishes or redness, this will cover them up no problem. The shade that I used, L48, was a good match for me as well. Now to the cons. I have dry skin and I have a hard problem finding full coverage foundations that work in combination with it. This foundation accentuated my dry patches. It also felt heavy on my face. Yes, I know it's full coverage but some foundations are able to give you the coverage while still letting your skin breathe. This foundation didn't do that for me. Also, I think the shade selection could be better. The color I bought was too light for me but the next color up, too dark. I'm glad some people like it and get use out of it, but never again for me.

If you’re looking for a full coverage foundation to cover virtually anything, this is the foundation! I have facial tattoos, and with the concealer it covers completely. I just wish it were truly as transfer-proof as it claims.

I really love this foundation. It's hard to find a good fair foundation that is cool and not warm toned. It's full coverage and is buildable for maximum coverage. I have also never had an issue with this causing breakouts.

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.

I absolutely love this for when I want full coverage foundation on. It seriously covers everything while still having a matte finish to it. Plus for the price you cannot beat the amount you get and it lasts forever because a little goes a long way.

My absolute favorite full coverage foundation! I have dark circles, light redness and a little acne scarring on my right cheek and this hides ALL of it. It lasts pretty much throughout my entire work day and into the night.

Love, love, love this product!! The best coverage, the best staying power. My skin is not left feeling dry after use (an issue with some of the other brands I've tried), and I've had no issues with breakouts using this product.

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?
