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.

- 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 absolutely love this foundation, it has amazing coverage and I love that I found the perfect shade for my skin tone. It's not too pricey either so that's a plus. I am definitely butterflies again.

I have oily skin, and Acne and it is a STRUGGLE to find good foundation that will leave my skin looking smooth and soft. This is not only LIGHT-WEIGHT but feels SO GOOD on my skin. I went from having acne to full coverage with only a couple dots of product.

SKIN TONE: 4.5/5 
It was hard to find my skin tone color at first because when I bought it at Sephora they had said one color matched and in the store it looked like it. HOWEVER, when I went outside it looked a bit more orange. I switched it out and it's almost my exact color, so it works! 

I have applied not only with a beauty blender but with a foundation brush and I get the same result with both, or at least not a noticeable difference. It went on smoothly. 

Attached I have a picture of what it looked like once it was on. From ACNE to this? and one pass? I think it looks good. Hope this review helps!  Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

I've been using this foundation for three years, and honestly I've come to dislike it. While it can look okay, it's not very nice looking for people like me - super pale neutral undertones people with combination skin. There are only heavy pink and heavy yellow undertones, I've tried everything from mixing 42 and 44, using them as stand alones, and wearing 43, and none have matched me well enough. If there's something else I don't like, it's that it smells like paint for a while after applying. The smell gets in my nose and I can't stand it. Besides that, it feels heavy on, looks heavy, dries out any already dried skin to where it flakes, and separates at oily skin. This is really a "normal skin" kind of foundation. For the time I had it, I was pleased. Soon after I discovered that isn't what foundation should look or feel like, I switched. Big thumbs down.

I really wanted to like this foundation because I'm usually a big fan of KVD makeup. However, this foundation was just way too cakey and seemed to flake off on my dry spots.

When they say full coverage they mean full coverage and not in a gross you can see how sick your foundation is kind of way in a it covers all of my flaws and in secure areas on my face so my face looks absolutely flawless! When I use this foundation I know that I am not going to have to worry about it moving or transferring off on my clothes or anything else it's stays put all day long! It's my favorite long-lasting full coverage foundation of all time!!

I would not purchase again. Ever. Wayyyy to thick. Hard to find a matching color to my skin tone. Very flat colors. Made me look like I was dead and had no color in my skin.

If you use a beauty blender it makes it more lightweight but still full coverage if using a brush it's full coverage and heavy. still love it and matches skin tone perfectly

This is a great foundation if you need the coverage/like a very full coverage! It is heavy, but it's great for oily/acne prone skin as long as you have a good skin care routine!

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?
