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: 45 LIGHT - WARM UNDERTONE more...
Hands down my favorite foundation on the market. It's super pigmented, matches really well to my skin tone, is max-full coverage, and MATTE! I have super oily skin and usually, makeup just melts off my face by 2pm - not this foundation though. It really holds up. I could not recommend this more.

Hands down my favorite high end foundation. I had an 8 hour dance tryout and never had to reapply! this is my go to when I know I’m going to have a long day. Perfect for oily skin! It never creased or cracked on me but I do use a primer so that was probably beneficial. But I live in hot and humid climate and this foundation is the only one that doesn’t make me self conscious when I sweat!

Super full coverage and it goes on well with a wet beautyblender. The only thing about it is that it tends to give me smile lines after wearing it for a while. All in all I do love how full coverage it is.

This foundation has been one of my favorites so far. The formula is very thick but can be thinned out by using a damp beauty blender. 1.5 pumps of the foundation will cover my entire face with full coverage. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation may be a little pricy but is definitely a must have.

Review for: Light 43 Warm more...
I absolutely LOVE this foundation. One of the best ones I’ve used by far. It doesn’t make my face look blotchy or oily. It’s also very easy to apply. The coverage is a lot a little goes a long way with the foundation for sure. I definitely think spending $36 on this foundation is worth it, because like I said a little does go a very long way !

This is my holy grail foundation! I'm very pale with a cool undertone and shade 44 matches my skin perfectly. Has a nice matte finish and blends beautifully. Definitely full coverage and long lasting.

Review for: 71 Deep - Warm Undertone more...
This is an okay foundation for me. I have really dry skin and this was extremely drying on my skin... I got a sample of this foundation at Sephora and tried it a couple of times with various hydrating primers, but it still didn't work on me. It looked extremely cakey and drying on my skin. It personally didn't look good on my skin, maybe it would be better for the people with oily skin.

Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
This is a very heavy and very high coverage foundation. I like that it's full coverage, but I always mix it with other foundations so it's not so heavy on my face. It covers up all my redness, which is good. This foundation has a full matte finish, so I don't recommend it if you're looking for a radiant or natural look. I do mix in liquid highlighter, though, which adds some luminosity.

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?
