MAKEUPALLEY REVIEW: Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

what is it?
What it is:
A high-pigment foundation for full coverage with a long-lasting, beautiful finish.

What it does:
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.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Synthetic Fragrances

things to rave about
  • VERY Long Lasting: "I just wore it for my wedding and it held up better than I could have asked for. I put it on at 9am, and it held up until I was able to wash my face that evening at 1am (That is 16 hours). I never had a chance to blot or anything else, It was a none stop go go go kind of deal. At 4:30 I did have to reapply a little on my nose with a brush and I was able to blend it in for the dinner and a second round of professional pictures without it looking anything but seamless. " by LadyKollie
  • Undetectable: " It covers every bit of discoloration, minimizes my pores, and brings my face to life. How on earth did she manage to formulate a foundation that covers so perfectly yet goes practically undetectable? You can't see this on my skin...I mean it looks just like skin! I'm on the drier side and this feels moisturizing but still leaves me with a semi matte, slightly dewy finish...go figure. And it gets even better looking as the day wears on...how is that possible? " by trisheee
  • Full Coverage: "I found the foundation texture is very thick and very little is needed to achieve full coverage. This is the fullest coverage foundation I have- it even rivals some of my concealers in terms of coverage. I did not have to use a separate concealer to cover up under eye circles and other blemishes. " by zoeferret
  • Non-Comedogenic: "I LOVE that the formula does not include fragrance, parabens, mineral oil, and other nasties that normally break me out." by dancer156
  • SO Pigmented: "Because this foundation is SO incredibly pigmented, you really have to get a great match for your skin tone and color. I was lucky that this matches perfectly, but definitely take some time to get a color match, or the line down your jaw and neck will be extremely obvious." by RaeRae2
  • Matte Finish: " Gives a nice matte finish that surprisingly keeps me matte, even with my oily skin, for awhile. I didn't experience this getting shiny or falling off my face like 99% of foundations tend to do with me after a certain amount of hours (usually 5-6 with me because my skin is so oily.) So that was actually a first! " by Breatheofmusic
  • Non Drying: "Doesn't make my face dry or tight feeling like some mattifying foundations that control my oil. It feels pretty natural on my skin." by shadesofyellow
  • No SPF: "Doesn't contain any SPF, which I actually enjoy, because that way you don't have to worry about flashback in photos or anything. If I want an SPF, I usually just use an SPF primer. " by Buttons723
things to rant about
  • May Oxidize: "I have super oily skin and this foundation stayed perfectly, but it oxidized on me like no other foundation has done. Only ten minutes after application (I tested it the 5th or 6th time I wore it since I thought something else was turning my face orange), it turned much darker and more orange than the original color." by tigergirly
  • Mask-Like: "It provides a matte finish so it's very very mask-like, I literally look dead wearing it without blush. So I tried it again with an illuminating liquid under and after but since's it's super pigmented, it really didn't work." by moment522
