Liquid -Kat Von D -Lock-It Foundation

This is my all time favourite "going out" foundation. Completely full coverage and covers ALL of my acne and scarring.

I have really really oily skin and this is the only foundation I have EVER used that actually stays on for 6+ hours without a touch up. I usually wear it with a primer underneath (smashbox OG one) and set it with Hourglass dim light and the staying power is a dream.

Pretty good shade selection for my skin tone, I didn't have any trouble finding a shade to match (light-medium, yellow undertones).

The only problem with this foundation is that it CAN give me breakouts (I have acne prone skin as well), but I only rarely use it so this is not a big issue, and it actually covers break outs I already have like a dream as well. Despite this, I continue to repurchase it as my acne is largely related to hormones and excessive oil production rather than any specific makeup. This foundation has so many pros which outweigh this one con (especially since I only wear it occasionally).

Beware of this foundation if you are looking for an everyday foundation and you have acne prone skin, but 100% buy it if is only for occasional use (going out, weddings, parties etc).



Eyeliner -Kat Von D -Tattoo Liner

I was on the hunt for an amazing liner and bought this due to all the RAVES about it. It was ok. I’m starting to get some wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes and I find this product does not work well for my skin and would work better for someone with smoother, more supple skin. The pen started to dry out quite quickly and I couldn’t get a good amount of product from the get-go but I like my liners super wet which this is not. I think the best thing about this product is the brush/applicator. Otherwise I wouldn’t purchase again. I don’t feel I got enough uses out for the price. I have other liners that have lasted month after month and this dried out quickly.


Fragrances -Kat Von D -Saint

I had to laugh at LogicGunn calling it out as a "cheap, nondescript scented-candle shop", but its true. The reformulated 2017 Saint is a subtle generic musky powdery vanilla floral. Bland, annoyingly headachy and not even original. Short lasting (1 - 2 hours on me).

I say not original cause to me its a dupe for "Cabotine Fleur D'Ivoire". The fragrance notes are virtually identical! I've got them listed at the bottom of this review. Both have peach, vanilla, musk, and Salicylate listed. (Kat sneaks Benzyl Salicylate onto the back of the ingredients list yet leaves it out of the official notes.) The other names have been switched around to disguise. Eg White Flowers = Jasmine/Lily-of-the-Valley, Almond = Almond Blossom. In fact, if you swapped "clary sage, mirabelle" for blackcurrant the notes list would be identical.

I think Kat has more filler in hers as its weaker and more boring. The filler she uses is "Benzyl Salicylate", the cheap chemical filler of the fragrance world that gives everything that Avon generic cheap musk scent to those who can smell it (some people can't like almonds, its a genetic thing, not something you can learn). This can smell/can't smell debate is a major reason why people find the same perfume so different. Anyway, in people who can detect Salicylates, it can be a MAJOR perfume allergen / cause of headaches.

If you love perfumes but find you get headaches from cheap musky fumes, just check the ingredients list on the back of the box for "Benzyl Salicylate". Saint (2017) has Salicylate super high on the ingredients list, after alcohol and sunscreen. Sinner (2017) has it lower down on the list, so if Saint annoys you Sinner might work.

Kat Von D Saint 2017
Top Notes - clary sage, mirabelle (yellow plum)
Mid Notes - jasmine, almond blossom, lily-of-the-valley
Base Notes - vanilla, cedar, peach, musk

Cabotine Fleur D'Ivoire:

Palettes -Kat Von D -Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette

Definitely would not re-purchase. The brown colors are all too warm for my skin, except the cool quads. The brown color on the cool quad is too dark for my skin. I am someone who have a tendency towards natural looks so to have zero option for it is disappointing.

Another thing is most of the shadows are very powdery aside from the light shades, which are for the browbones and the yellow base color on the warm quad. The light shades I must admit blends well. But the darker shades can't really blend around, it is easier to draw it as shadow liner than to blend it.

This is honestly so disappointing for me because even the brown neutral shades look really red and puffy on my eyes. I would like to see Kat von D produce more blend-able cool toned eyeshadows in the future


Concealers -Kat Von D -Lock-It Concealer Creme

I was given three samples of this by a very generous MUA when I bought Lolita - and I'm so glad! I bloody LOVE them!

I was given Neutral, Cool and Warm (I expect there are variations in those but that's all it says on mine) and the cool and Neutral ones are just amazing. I use them under my eyes and along my cheeks to cover my rosacea, it blends beautifully with a damp RT sponge, sets and doesn't budge. I love it. I use it with Fenty foundation for full coverage and mt skin genuinely looks flawless all day (powdered and set with setting spray of course!).

I used it the other day with just some Smashbox Oil Primer, a couple of drops on my face and then blended out with the aforementioned sponge. Oh my god, it looked amazing. It genuinely looked like I just had flawless skin, it covered the redness without looking cakey or like make up, as the oil gave it a gorgeous dewiness. I've now run out of the oil (of course ) so when I can, I will be buying both the concealer and the oil so I can FINALLY achieve a 'my skin but better' look! continued >>
