This is one of my favorite foundations in my collection. While it is an thick formula it does work well in covering and concealing any imperfections on your skin. The is a full coverage foundation and can look cakey if not applied properly to the skin. I also tend to like this foundation more for fall and winter months during the summer can be a little much due to the fact it is so thick,nevertheless I still love it and think Kat Von D hands down nailed a foundation that leaves you looking flawless!

I really love this foundation but I feel it makes my skin look crusty if I don't moisturize my face really good. I have to use a really good moisturizer before applying this foundation but other than that I really love it it has a really really good full coverage that's what I love and we take pictures it's really flawless I highly recommend this foundation

Very long wearing! Great coverage and many shades to choose from! Full coverage in my opinion! Will buy again! It's a very matte finish and works great with the setting powder! Good price point as well!

5/5 For coverage! It is definitely a full coverage foundation and hides any blemish or pigmentation. But it feels so heavy in your skin and it feels like you are painting it on. I miss it with my Tarte Oil so that it's not as heavy.
This foundation is great for oily skin and for acne scars, I love the fact that it's very full coverage but it does get very cakey. I only use it to conceal my acne scars.

If you have dry skin and like a full coverage this will be perfect for you, that being said I have oily skin in my t zone and this foundation made it look so much more oily. When I use it I use it every where except my nose and apples of my cheeks. But I love the coverage and color selection

The coverage of this foundation is amazing. A lot of coverage. A heavy foundation that is comfortable. Very long lasting. Easy to apply. I wear the shade light 44 cool which is perfect for my pale skin tone. Only flaw is that the creases around my mouth begin to define after a few hours if I don't use moisturizer underneath. That can easily be fixed. I would definitely buy again in the future. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Seriously I've tried so many different foundations and this one is hands down my favorite. It's a full coverage foundation so it might be too much for you if you're looking for light coverage but I have really bad acne scars and this covers it so well. It lasts all day (even wore it the day of my wedding) and even though it's a full coverage foundation I didn't feel like my face was going to melt off if that makes sense. I recommend applying it with a beauty blender as it's a lot easier than using a brush in my opinion. I think it's a hit and miss foundation, you either hate it or love it. I personally love it!! :)

Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
I love KVD’s packaging and marketing, I follow their artistry collective on instagram, and so I defaulted to Lock-It foundation when I started getting more serious about makeup. I’ve gone through a couple bottles of this, and it does have nice coverage. My main issue is that it seemed to settle too easily into the nooks and crannies of my face. Towards the end of the day I would have what I like to call “Kellyanne Conway eyes,” a million creases under my eye that made me look much older than I am! Any of my enlarged pores also seemed to be accentuated with this foundation despite using quality primers and moisturizers.

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?
