This is my go to foundation for my night out on the town. It is true full coverage and provides a glam look for any occasion. I do not like the fact that it is pretty thick and you have to blend for a while before it gives me the smooth, flawless look I’m going for. Also, the color appears lighter when applying. Still, I get so many compliments on my makeup when I wear it.

I can’t. I really really can’t with this foundation. It’s extremely full coverage and I knew that going in, but it’s like I put frosting on my face. It doesn’t even look good on. Even with primer my pours are like hello honey!!

Living in Arizona, foundation & concealer that can last in the summer is crucial... Kat Von D doesn’t let me down! This foundation lasts all day, even when it’s 115 degrees! I can’t go without it & the coverage is AMAZING !!!!!

Review for: 42 LIGHT - NEUTRAL UNDERTONE more...
Although this is HEAVY and THICK (girl it's thicker than a bowl of oatmeal) as a drag queen this is so perfect. I use it as a highlight/concealer and it's so amazing. It blends easily, covers EVERYTHING, and lasts forever on the skin. It's also amazing for carving out brows, eyelid primer, and to cut a crease. It's a really nice foundation, but beware: this is FULL COVERAGE!

This foundation is one of the best there are in the market. It really works for people with oily skin and also dry. I love it because it blends so awesome and it lasts all day and night. I would totally recommend it to anyone.

Purchased at: Sephora
For coverage: I give this a 5, and a little goes a long way.
Finding a color that Suites you: 3. I have tried 6 different colors and they all seem extremely dark or extremely light.
Price is a bit high to be experimenting and testing out colors.
But when you find one, coverage lasts all day, through the gym and possibly even through rain / a shower if you don’t wash your face!!!

Review for: Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation - Full Coverage, Liquid NET Wt 1.0 Fl. Oz / 30ml (Medium 53 - light to medium complexion with golden yellow undertone) more...
It smells like paint! It’s very full coverage so if u use too much it can look cakey! It’s easy to use doesn’t work well with dry skin. It is long lasting but that’s because of how heavy it is.

Review for: Medium 52 Neutral more...
This is my holy grail foundation!!!! I am very fair skinned but LOVE full coverage foundation. A lot of foundations don't seem to have good pigmentation in the lighter shades and it just ends up looking streaky. This is actually fun to put on because the coverage on it is INSANE but my face doesn't feel cakey. It stays put during my 10+ hour days working in a restaurant.

I have been using this foundation since it first launched. I have tried the different variations that have come out over the years. It doesn't leave my skin oily, it lasts all day. If you want a full coverage foundation this one is very full coverage. I don't wear foundation anymore. But when I do it is far a night out or special event and does what i need it to do.

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?
