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 have used this foundation for years. It is the perfect full coverage. I have oily skin so sometimes I find after a few hours of wear it does start to look a little more oily than I like, but overall it's great!

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
Wears so well, has amazing pigmentation, matte finish, long lasting. It can be a tad bit drying so it’s best for normal, combo and oily skin. Well worth it though. I’d buy this again in a heartbeat, so I’m sold!

I like it but don’t love it. I prefer her powder one better but even that doesn’t last all day. The formula isn’t enough for me but it also makes me break out. I wasn’t satisfied with this and will be returning.

BEST LIQUID FOUNDATION EVER!! This is a holy grail product for me. Set it and forget it, and it won't budge for a whole day. I have very pale skin (natural redhead) and i can NEVER find a shade i match with. Theyre always too dark or too orange. So, naturally i ordered the lightest shade of this, and it actually turned out to be too light! I was and still am amazed by that. Rather than return this one for a shade or 2 darker, i decided to try mixing it with my tarte™ Amazonian clay full coverage foundation SPF 15, which is slightly too dark for me. The mix works perfectly for my skin! And any areas i want to brighten, i just use the KVD without mixing in any Tarte. Works like a charm. The formula gives amazing full-full coverage, but doesn't feel at all cakey. I feel like this foundation was made for me! And coming from a girl who can NEVER find her right shade, that means alot to me. I have been singing the praises and recommending to everyone i know. I will also, without a doubt, DEFINITELY purchase this again.

Super full coverage. The color is skittle light for me. Super super dewy and sticky. Easy to apply and blend out on my skin. Not good for oily skin but looks good when I have dry skin. Might buy a darker shade.

The best full coverage liquid foundation for a matte effect! It lasts all day, perfect if you have dry skin, it will hydrate it. Small amount of product needed, very light feeling and will not get cakey at all!

As I was getting into makeup one of my first products that I bought was this foundation but as I kept wearing it it would brake on my face. Definitely full coverage and easy to apply it just didn't work for me.

I've sampled a bunch of luxury foundations in the last six months while in search of just the right one for me. I knew the first time I wore it that KVD Lock-It was a winner. In terms of coverage, it's beyond full. The pigmentation is so concentrated that I sometimes mix it with my moisturizer and use it as a BB cream instead of full coverage. The formula is lightweight so you don't feel as if you're wearing a greasy mask and it has been very kind to my unpredictable skin. Best of all, it wears like iron all day long, so my face looks just as good when I leave work as it did when I got there 12 hours earlier. With the wider range of tones now available in the line, I highly recommend this foundation to anyone who wants mega-coverage with major staying power.

This is the best full coverage foundation i have found so far. It is my favorite foundation so far. It hides your pores, any imperfections, it is easy to blend out, so many positive things about this foundation.

I love how long this product last. Very complete coverage and doesn't cake up on your face. Color matched perfectly as well. I purchase my at sephora and they always help with any color matching I need. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

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?
