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.

It was my go to until I found the urban Decay all nighter but it's a full coverage. Pricey but what foundation isn't? Be careful for your shade coloring! Go outside and check in the light, may throw you off after letting it sit for awhile!

This foundation was very long wearing, it didn’t crease, it didn’t make me any more oily than normal, I would recommend for people more normal to oily. The foundation can feel heavy— a little bit goes a long way but it is very full coverage.

I seriously swear by this product! I have multiple colors simply because my shade changes based on the season. I have used it over my tattoos and it works amazingly well! It doesn't feel cakey at all. I don't care to use another foundation.

This foundation is great for oily and acne prone skin. Extremely full coverage with a matte finish and it is totally transfer proof. It can read a little bit cakey compared to other full coverage foundations, but I've learned that the trick is to use the BLACK beauty blender, rather than the pink. Something about the softness of it makes the foundation blend more easily and creates a more skin-like finish. Right now at Sephora they're selling a bundle with this foundation and a black beauty blender. What a steal!
It's also important to note that my skin is extremely sensitive and I break out if I look at myself in the mirror the wrong way. I have never experienced a breakout from this foundation. Plus it isn't tested on animals!

I think the Kat Von D lock it foundation does its job very well. Sometimes I get coverage, sometimes I don't. I think it is good for oily skin, my dry skin wasn't best suited to it. I would buy this again!

The one and only foundation that you will never really have to use a concealer with. It has amazing coverage. I even use it a co eat for my tattoos when I need to have them covered for specials occasions.

Stays on all day long and doesn't budge. The consistency is thick so I prefer to apply it with a damp brush or beauty blender and work in sections. I wear only for special occasions as it blocks my pores.

This is a very full coverage foundation and I love that it doesn’t transfer! When I had oily skin this was my go to foundation. However, once my skin started to change more towards the combo side it began to make my dry patches look awful.

Love this foundation. The only issue I have is that it’s in the higher price bracket. But I believe that you get what you pay for and this is well worth the money that you spend on it! Highly recommend this foundation!

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?
