- Synthetic Fragrances

This foundation has been formulated to work synergistically with Kat's Rehab Priming Elixir, Tattoo Concealer, and Lock 'N Load Setting Mist.

To be a lighter shade it's hard to find something that matches you perfectly but this does. It's easy to use and apply. I prefer the matte finish for myself, I think it looks better. I would recommend to my friends!

First of all this foundation is amazing, it is definitely full coverage long lasting you do get a but oily if you are an oily person but not as much. It is very easy to apply and with a little bit of amount of the foundation it covers your whole face. This foundation lasted me a long time I loved it that I have already repurchased it twice. The only thing is that it is on the heavy side if you apply a lot.

Love this foundation! Great coverage, light weight, and long wearing. I have very oily skin and this seems to keep the oil at bay with the Benefit Cosmetics That Gal Brightening Face Primer. I use ELF setting spray and I am good to go for my 14 hour day.

This foundation is incredibly drying, but very high coverage. If you have sensitive, dry skin it does cling to the dry patches. I wouldn't say it's heavy, but it does tend to make my face look quite cakey, but overall it's a good product. I don't prefer this to other foundations I have -- my go to is the Makeup Forever Ultra HD stick -- but I would use this again. I think it's going to depend on your skin type and routine on whether or not you'll love or hate this product, but it's not bad and Kat Von D has amazing selection with shades, as well.

The Lock It foundation is one of the highest coverage foundations I've ever used. I had mixed results with this foundation, as I have combination skin. It looked wonderful and matte on the oilier parts of my skin, but in dry areas (especially my nose) it became cakey and did not look smooth at all. Maybe I need to try a different primer, but I wasn't overly thrilled with this. However, my sister has very acne-damaged skin and she LOVES this stuff. It covers all her scars evenly but doesn't look piled on.

I used this on one of my clients because she had a wedding to attend and thought showing up with a unexpected tattoo would look crazy, so I covered it up for her!

LOVEEEEEEEEE this foundation. I personally believe it is affordable and I myself have a minimum wage paying job. I don't need a full coverage foundation but I have slight discoloration that this foundation covers perfectly. The finish is FLAWLESS! you don't even need to set this foundation. this foundation has no flash back so it's perfect for photos. The shades for this foundation is awesome. I have a yellow undertone and I found my perfect match. Normally I'd have to buy TWO high end foundations just to get my color but not with this one. Women of color friendly for sure! I would totally recommend this. It does't feel heavy at all and I never look cakey. hurry up and buy <3

This is a very full coverage matte foundation, and a little goes a long way! The packaging is gorgeous love it. I have to say be careful when picking out your color because when I bought mine it looks like it was a perfect match however when I applied it, it came up a lot lighter then i had thought but it still looked amazing! It was so easy to apply and did an amazing job at covering my scars that i have. Once i am finished with the one i have i will go back and get it again and I will try a darker color!

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?
