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.

Review for: Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation - Full Coverage, Liquid NET Wt 1.0 Fl. Oz / 30ml (Medium 53 - light to medium complexion with golden yellow undertone) more...
This foundation was okay. It is VERY thick. The only way I was able to apply it was with a wet beauty blender and if you wait to long to start applying it it sort of drys. I used it a few times and put it away.

I wasn’t a fan of this foundation. I thought that the formula was really cakey and accentuated the patches of dry skin that I’ve been trying to take care of. I feel that it would be better for someone with oily skin.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
Usually, I have an issue finding a foundation that is light enough to match my Casper like skin tone, I definitely don't have that issue with this foundation. Unfortunately, that's where the postives end for me. This product is so incredibly heavy on the skin and emphasizes EVERYthing. Wrinkles I didn't even know I had were emphasized.
This also is extremely difficult to apply as it dries very quickly. I found that it just sits on top of my skin and bunches around my nose during wear.

I personally do not use foundation except for big occasions such as weddings, but this is perfect for events like that. It is FULL coverage, so it is a bit cakey, but this is good for nights of dancing and photos. Doesn’t seem to transfer much as it requires some effort to wash off.

Review for: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
I have freckles! So this foundation really does it job! Full coverage! However, I am not a big fan of thick mousse texture since I do have normal to dry skin to super dry skin when the weather changes! But am very pleased with the aftermath of applying.

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
The coverage on this foundation is great, and it’s super easy to build up. Definitely a full coverage foundation.

However, I feel like it was super cakey on my face and it felt heavy, which I was not a fan of. I also didn’t like how my skin felt afterwards either.

I’d be willing to try this again in the future, and maybe with a different technique of applying, because I did like the coverage. But I did not like the finish.

Perfect for when I'm going out for the night and big events! Covers up so wonderfully. I sometimes mix a little with my primer and use it for everyday. I only need to use a little at a time so it's going to last me!

Review for: Medium 52 Neutral more...
This foundation is the best I’ve ever tried. This foundation is fairly easy to the blend and compared to products like, the tarte shape tape matte foundation, it doesn’t dry as quick, which is a plus for me because It gives me time to blend flawlessly.

I love the Kat Von D foundation, I totally recommend this product if you’re looking for a full matte coverage foundation. I don’t not recommend it if you have dry skin. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Did not like this foundation at all. WAY too full coverage for me. It felt extremely heavy and stuck to all of my dry patches. I felt as though the only person who could use this was one with completely clear skin.

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?
