The best coverage I have ever found in a foundation! It takes a very small amount to cover your entire face and it covers very well! I only wish it was a little more affordable!

I'm obsessed! Quick story: I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and I just didn't have the money at the time to pay for the airbrush make up so I decided to do my own. I heard good things about the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation so I decided to give it a try. Let me tell you,my makeup looked flawless! I was so impressed and even the makeup artist complimented my makeup! Another bridesmaid asked me if she could use that instead of the airbrush and she too was amazed, in fact she ordered it online from her phone right at the salon! My makeup lasted all day and night and this was a beach wedding too!
I'm so hooked and recommend this to everyone!

This is my absolute favorite foundation. It's great for all types of skin tones. I love the way it makes my skin look. I wish the bottle was bigger though that's my only con.

Very very good coverage just have to use the right brush to spread as it's very thick. I don't like it for everyday wear but special occasions it's perfect. Little pricey for me.

I use this every day! I have very oily skin and it stays on. It looks amazing and the color matches perfectly. This is the best foundation that I've ever used.

Best covering make up I have ever used! Doesn't make the skin look oily at all and the color is matte. I apply it with a make up sponge and it covers everything I need and more!

Amazing. Best. Ever.

I purchased the KVD lock it foundation from Sephora in the shade light 43. I had serious doubts because I struggle with dry/combo skin. So I needed something to cover my breakout but also not cake up and cling to my dry patches. This foundation is it! The coverage is downright amazing! And I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn't dry my skin out. I do recommend using a primer, especially the Kat von d primer, and using a beauty blender to apply!

I loved this foundation for the most part. The coverage is excellent. It hid a lot of my blemishes. The only thing that I really didn't care for is how heavy and cakey it feels.

Coverage-wise, I would give this foundation 5 stars. I have horrible acne scars and this is only foundation that covers them all while still keeping my face not cakey. The reason I left a star off is because I find myself oily after a long work day. But my skin type is combination so not sure if I can contribute exclusively to the foundation. It’s been the only one I’ve used daily since 2015 and I’ll probably stick with it. The pic attached is the foundation in natural lighting. No edits. Setting powder and spray on top!

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?
