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.

This foundation is great if you like very thick, heavy foundations. It really will cover anything like dark spots, acne, or tattoos. It feels too thick and heavy on me personally, I just feel like I'm wearing a mask. I actually really like using it for theatrical style costumes and editorial photo shoots, especially when I need a super pale base. This foundation line offers one of the fairest shades I've seen.

HOLY GRAIL!!!!!!! When this foundation was first released, I was working at Sephora and was able to test it out a few times. At first, I thought the foundation was way too thick and it looked a little cakey when applied. I'm not sure if the formula has changed but now I'm in love with this foundation! It is still thick but when applied with the write brush the coverage is absolutely flawless. It's full coverage but nothing too crazy. It covers EVERYTHING! I love it

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
It's a strong full coverage, that in my opinion needs a good primer and then either setting spray or powder. I can put this on in the morning and then ride my motorcycle (half helmet) and still loom good. As with most foundations, heat and water are your enemy, but this is an excellent option for full coverage foundation.

This foundation is amazing! It has full coverage and hides imperfections so well. It is a little difficult to blend because its so heavy but I don't mind it. My only problem is the available shade options. Eventhough new shades were just released, none of them fit my skin still. I have to mix two different shades to get my perfect match.

This foundation is very nice. High coverage. Super tacky, which is great for applying powders on top. Looking to try other foundations just for experimental purposes, but this is a solid foundation and I highly recommend it.

I absolutely love this foundation. I have very acne prone combination skin. It doesn't change amount of oil on face as I need oil blot pads but it doesn't make my oil any worse than usual. It is my go to foundation. It in non comedogenic so I don't have to worry about break outs which is #1 in my book. Also it has amazing coverage which is #2 to me. I will but again and again. Also it has soo many shades which I think is key in finding the perfect one! Thanks, KVD!

This foundation is great! I have combination normal to dry skin. It helps my skin look a little on the natural dewy side. If you have oily skin I believe you will probably have to set it. I do not set mines on a regular day only on full glam days. On a regular day, I use very little as concealer just to cover dark circles and blemishes, a little goes a long way! This is definitely the best coverage and longest lasting foundation I have tried. Will be buying again.

Love love love this foundation ! I only use this on night outs or when I know I'm going to a family get together for the full coverage . I recently had my wisdom teeth pulled & had nasty bruising on my jaw line & an amazing job on coverage. I totally recomend !

Heavy coverage, and difficult to make look natural. I have to say that it is a blessing on days where I need major coverage, and it stays put for quite a while, but it doesn't stay all day for me and transfers. I know that the ingredients break me out, so I don't wear it daily, but it's great for those days where I need something full.

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is by far my favorite foundation I have tried! Me being a makeup lover and a VIB at Sephora Iv tried many makeup products and brands. I've discovered that Kat Von D gives the best coverage and actually last throughout the day. I absolutely love and enjoy how little of the product you have to use to get the job done! Just one pump is a perfect amount for me to have full coverage and for it to last throughout the day! I am absolutely a believer that Kat Von D foundation is worth the price!!

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?
