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.

Love this foundation, but won't buy it again. It's expensive, which I know to expect when buying KVD and too heavy. It's great if you want a full coverage without having to build.

My skin has been incredibly difficult to cover lately. I've had more breakouts in the last six months than I have in the last ten years, but this foundation will cover ANYTHING. My only issue is in certain lighting it can look a little cakey.

I was not looking to fall in love but I did. I was looking for a foundation that gave me better coverage and lasted as long as my work day. I leave the house at 5:30am and return around 7pm Monday thru Friday. I want to look the same when I return home as I did when I left. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation gave me all of this and more! This is by far is the best liquid foundation that I have ever used. It does not melt or breakdown when it's hot. I keeps the same smooth, air-brushed look until I take it off. It is easy to take it off and does not clog my pores.

I recommend this to anyone who wants full coverage and that photo finished look all day.

Again, I love everything that Kat Von D comes out with. This foundation comes kind of differently packaged than mosts, there is a cap you pull off on the front and then you pump down on it. I think this foundation blends out super well and does a great job covering everything and gives you, even, matte skin. I also think it lasts all day, it still stays on smooth and covering everything. I also feel like you need to use less product than a lot of other foundations to get good coverage so the bottle actually lasts quite a while.

I wanted to love this but given the lofty claims I was fairly disappointed. Despite the claim to cover tattoos, sadly this could not cover my undereye circles or other impurities.

Great foundation for oily skin but must be used with a good primer . The consistency is very thick so it is complete full coverage . The one thing I love about this foundation is a little bit goes a long way and it completely covers those annoying dark blemish scars . I have not found a foundation that could make your skin look flawless even if you have scars or different pigmented skin. If you are oily like I am, I do recommend to use a finishing powder to set the matte finish look.

I am extremely pale and the lightest shade is way to light for me but any shade above it is way to dark. In order to get the right shade I need to mix with other formulas. I also find that this is very think and feels like makeup on the face, it doesn't just sit lightly, you can 100% feel it on the skin. I find is slightly difficult to apply but it hues great coverage. I don't know how it affects my skin BC I have been using it only a short amount of time. What I do know though is that you CAN NOT have dry skin otherwise this foundation will look A MESS!!!!

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?
