Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation Review
What Is it:
A high-pigment foundation for full coverage that leaves a long-lasting, beautiful finish.
What it does:
“Kat Von D created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed with proprietary pigments to match a broad range of skintones with bold, full coverage. 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.”
Price and Where to Buy:
This foundation is $35 and can be purchased online or in stores at Sephora.
It comes in beautiful packaging that I’ve heard was hand designed by the tattoo artist herself, which would totally make sense. I just don’t think I’ve ever seen packaging for foundation quiet like this either, the pump is designed perfectly so it fits right inside the bottle. Very cool.
It comes in 19 shades, which is pretty amazing, every skin tone should be able to find a match!
How to Apply:
1 // Start off with a clean face as always, and you actually don’t have to use a primer with this foundation. But if you want to this is where you will apply your primer.
2 // Dispense 1 pump onto your fingertips (I’ve tried it several ways and I think applying it with my fingers works the best for this foundation).
3 // Start applying the foundation to your face with your fingers, just like you would with a moisturizer, you don’t have to worry about it being perfectly blended here.
4 // Lastly take your favorite foundation brush (mine here) and blend out the foundation on your skin. Keep in mind this foundation does start setting pretty quickly so you need to work with it fairly fast before it becomes unblendable shall we say!
Added the rest of my makeup.
I think this is a really great foundation… for oily skin. If you have dry skin, or even combo skin with dry patches I would probably just skip this all together. But for my oily skin girls it’s amazing! It looks flawless. It is a full coverage foundation, but it isn’t super thick which is one of the things I like about it, your skin still feels like it can breathe! It doesn’t stay completely matte on me all day, but it does still look very nice even when I start getting oily!
Would I repurchase? Probably just in the summer where my skin is at it’s oiliest. During the winter I can just imagine some flakiness from dry skin I will probably have.
