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.

I love this foundation it covers up my dark circles so well and my nose tends to get oily through out the day but with this foundation I don't really have that problem anymore. I only need half a pump to cover everything up and its not heavy on the skin. This product has a matte finish to it and the bottle design is really cute I highly recommend this foundation its my favorite.

Okay, I'm sure I am the very unpopular opinion here but I cannot stand this foundation. The coverage is awesome for about 5 minutes. Then, it started to immediately break up around my nose area and made my skin feel tacky. I think it was just really way too thick of a formula for my skin type.

This is by far my favorite full coverage foundation. Some people say it's very "cakey" but I didn't have that problem. I have oily skin and this gives me the nice matte finish I love, and it lasts all day! One bottle goes a long way, I have had mine for 2 months and still haven't used it all!

Hands down my FAVORITE foundation EVER! It is full coverage and super bendable! And when I say Full coverage, I mean it.. My sister was in a wedding and I used this foundation to cover up one of her tattoos (Which is words written in DARK black ink) and you could NOT even tell. It leaves your skin looking flawless! Basically Its magic in a bottle to me, lol hope this helped! :)

I am about to do some very hard bragging on this foundation. When I first seen Kat Von D use it on her tattoos I was like yeah right there is no way a foundation gives that much coverage. So, I do what any normal girl would do. I take my boyfriend who is pretty tatted up to Sephora. I was seriously in some shock. I found my color and I bought it immediately without hesitation. It covered so unbelievably well. Like I could not describe my excitement even if I wanted. She seriously overdone herself. This is in my top 5.

I purchased this product under the recommendations of a lot of people and I wished I took into consideration the other girls' preference when it comes to foundation coverage. I don't have terrible skin on my face, so I prefer a very sheer/light coverage.

Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is way too much coverage for me. It will definitely work well for women who are looking for a really full, matte coverage... and this product is super matte! I can see the appeal for a specific type of makeup style for sure.

Full coverage just like I like my foundation. I enjoy the fact that it is transfer proof & stays on my face with a matte finish. I wish the price wasn't so high.

Full coverage, but....

This foundation will most definitely cover anything. Kat Von D made herself famous for tattooing people, and now she's made a name for herself for covering things up!

The foundation itself is sub par. Its extremely sticky and leaves your face feeling cakey, and it highlights any wrinkles or facial hair you might have. The bottle it comes in is very inconvenient and messy, and looks gross after you use it for a week or two.

The foundation is most definitely long-wear, and stays put all day, but unless your face is perfect, your insecurities will stand out like a nun in a brothel!

While I love most other Kat Von D palettes, this foundation did not work well for me. It had a strong smell and was very thick. That being said, if you want absolute full coverage, this foundation is for you, and it does not budge. For myself, this foundation clung to my dry spots and didn't smooth over my face nicely. While everyone should make opinions for themselves, this is a hard no for me from now on.

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?
