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.

Definitely full coverage. At first I was amazed. It literally made my skin look like porcelain but after a few hours it started to separate and by the end of the day it looked horrible. I have dryer skin though so that is probably why. My friend had really bad cystic acne and whenever she wore this it made her skin look amazing and smooth!

I have heard so many good things about the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation. It covers everything and is not cakey. I use an oval foundation brush or a black beauty blender (Beauty Blender Pro) to apply this.

Does the job! The only downside is that it can really cling onto your dry spots, as it is a heavy foundation. I would not recommend it to people with dry skin. It has the most matte finish of any foundations that I've ever tried. I would like to buy again, but would love a smaller version of it.

This is my holy grail matte foundation. It stays put, a little goes a long long way too. It's a fabulous product with the perfecting power of stage makeup. This is amazing. My dry skin doesn't mind it either! Keep it coming Kat!

I have a lot of acne scars and hyperpigmentation and this is the only foundation and this is the only foundation that will cover them to my liking. I like that its a thicker formula- not watery like many others. It is also non-creasy and not too cakey. The only issue I have it that it does not have SPF to my knowledge. Otherwise would be perfect.

I do not need concealer with this foundation in fact, it’s the only foundation or concealer I’ve found that does not crease under my eyes.  It stays smooth and crease-less under my eyes  all day long.  It’s nice and matte.

This would be a great foundation for going out and wanting to do a full face. My opinion is that it's not an every day because of the extreme full coverage. A little goes a long way. It does last though! I never had a problem with it wearing off.

I was very weary of this foundation at first, but after watching a few how-to videos on youtube I quickly realized the tricks of how to use it correctly. I cherish this foundation so much, (it's currently my favorite) but I don't wear it for everyday use because it is super full coverage.

This foundation is my go-to matte foundation. Most days I find myself reaching for this foundation! It blends easily. Long lasting coverage and very full coverage! It's something I would buy over and over.

love this foundation, its buildable, has awesome coverage regardless, price is fair for the quality of the product, and she offers MANY shades for all complexions & skin tones. Super easy to find @ Sephora.

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?
