Love love love this powder foundation. I have combo/oily skin and this keeps the shine at bay for a solid 9-10 hours. Great color selection so the Sephora rep didn't have any trouble matching my skin tone. I didn't care for the little sponge it came with so I used my powder foundation brush and it went on quick and even. luckily the color stays true all day even in humid weather. I live in FL so humidity is a daily issue. This is also a cruelty free brand. No little bunnies were harmed in an effort to make you look beautiful. Definitely worth trying. I used to only use Chantecaille powder foundation but this coverage is much better. Its advertised as full coverage but I would say it's med to full. Will be repurchasing. Happy shopping.

Beautiful packaging, beautiful quality powder, and great company ethics- no animal testing. It is very pigmented, does not accentuate dryness, keeps skin matte, and does not cause breakouts at all.This lasts all day on me, and can wear it by itself and still get awsome coverage while looking natural. For reference, I have combo oily skin, have tried all the high end powders, nothing gives the same satin matte finish with high coverage and lasting power.ELDW powder is my second choice, but KVD Lockit powder will forever be my favorite. I've repurchased this twice now.

Even though it's a foundation, it pairs with the KVD liquid foundation as a setting powder. I'm not a fan of powder foundation so I wouldn't wear this on its own. It's full coverage and extremely blendable. There's great colour selection as well. The packaging is sturdy and beautifully designed. Will be repurchasing.

What a fantastic foundation! Feather-lite yet doesn't move once it's applied - no transfer at all - and it stops shine in its tracks. And ladies, I have shine like you wouldn't believe, I've had estheticians back away from me slowly when I go for facials - they can't deal with my shine. But this powder foundation keeps it all under wraps and it feels terrific. My skin feels fresh, rejuvenated and clean. Plus, there's even a shade light enough for me that isn't too yellow or pink. And i bought this on a whim! thank you, Kat Von D.

I have had several great powder foundations over the years from various brands. I've bought and loved Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation (IPF), Chantecaille Compact Foundation (which should expand their color range but I love it), and MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus (SFPP), which has the most amazing shade range I've ever seen with realistic flesh tones from uber-pale to deep dark. Jane Iredale's Pure Pressed Base disappointed me because although I thought the texture was very nice, I could not find a good color match. Everything in that line skews very pink, very yellow, or very orange and I wish Jane Iredale would throw it all out and start over with shades that are neutral, because even the "neutrals" are very pink or very yellow. Also I wasn't crazy about the $52 price tag, and refills are $40 (the empty compact is $12). Once I hit the $50 mark, I start comparing the product to Dior Forever Compact, which has a great finish, is lightweight, and has a nice color match for me in the lightest shade,10. Dior also hides my pores, and Iredale didn't. Stila's refills are $28 and the compact is $14 for a total of $42. I appreciate the recycling mentality, but the compact isn't worth $14. If Stila's going to charge that, the compact should be nicer. With Kat Von D, the whole kit and caboodle is only $35 and the attractive compact is already assembled. Chantecaille's compact is quite nice and the powder is better at hiding my pores, but it's $62 versus $35.Kat Von D's compact is sturdy with a beautiful pattern on the outside of the mirrored lid and the usual sponge compartment hidden under the powder cake. I much prefer this compact to Stila's or MAC's. I bought the shade Light 45, which was the closest color match for me. The Sephora SA and I agreed that this is the only neutral for light skin. While Light 42 and 44 both lean pink, 45's undertone is described on Sephora's site as yellow, but it's not glaringly so. It was the best option for me of the three lightest shades. This formula is special enough that it would be smart for Kat Von D to add a shade for very fair skin that is basically the same tone as 45 but paler, for fair women who are more neutral than rosy. My best shade in Stila IPF was 10 Watts when I was using that, and Light 45 is darker. It's more like Stila's 20 or 30 Watts. Stila's 10 Watts has a *slight* yellow undertone but it's pale, so it's great for very fair skin. Bases with strong pink undertones tend to emphasize redness, and not all fair skins have pink undertones. People with inflammation are trying to move away from pink. KVD Light 42 will match some porcelain skin, but not porcelain skin that is neutral to slightly "warm." MAC's SFPP range is vast and seems to include every flesh tone. That should really be the goal for all brands.Kat Von D's coverage is fuller than your average powder and even full for a powder foundation. Stila's IPF is more like a pigmented setting powder. Studio Fix Powder Plus is also more lightweight than KVD. This powder is versatile. You can add a light layer with a powder brush and stop there. This adds coverage and a powder finish without caking it on. If you use the enclosed sponge, this lays more product onto the skin than the brush does. You can apply dry, and then to take away the powdery finish, if you so desire, you can take a damp sponge and lightly press it (without rubbing) into the skin. I did this one day and just put a light layer of translucent blot powder over my T-zone and it looked very nice. Or if you have Evian water, a light misting of that will take it from a powder look to more of a liquid look, although it still doesn't give you the finish of a liquid such as Armani Luminous Silk.My favorite way to wear this or any powder foundation is over a very sheer tinted sunscreen or BB cream because powder foundations aren't the best for smoothing out texture. Liquids do a better job. Something sheer that contains sodium hyaluronate (like MAC Prep+Prime Beauty Balm SPF 35 or Bare Minerals Complexion Gel Creme) is better at giving you a smooth canvas, compensating for pores and fine lines. MDSolarSciences Beauty Balm SPF 50 is a good primer to wear beneath this powder foundation. Overall, for the price, I really like this powder foundation. Kat Von D is Leaping Bunny Certified, for those who are vegan or avoiding animal testing. Brands such as Stila, Armani, MAC, Dior, are not cruelty free.INGREDIENTS (LIGHT 45 COLOR):Talc, Nylon-12, Mica, Kaolin, Isoamyllaurate, Magnesium Myristate, Dimethicone, Boron Nitride,Phenyl Trimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Polyester-4, 1,2-Hexanediol,Caprylyl Glycol, Barium Sulfate, Dimethiconol.

This is the only powder I've found that matches my skin tone perfectly, and I think that has to do with the fact that Kat Von D offers a pretty varied set of colors. For a powder, it's quite pigmented, but it doesn't offer the full coverage I was led to expect. Granted, it is MUCH better than most other powders, but I use it either with concealer or to set liquid foundation. Works excellently with both, but it's not a miracle product. Staying power is significant, but don't rely on it if you're out in the sun all day. I have oily skin and I found that it works best without a setting spray, but primer is a must.

I'm a huge fan of the Kat Von D Lock-It liquid foundation. Once you know how to use it right, it's a fantastic full coverage option.I use the powder foundation after the liquid foundation. I very lightly apply the powder with a kabuki brush. This helps to "set" the foundation, prevent transfer and reduce shine. It also gives a smooth finish.For casual days just running errands, I stick with the powder foundation. Alone it smooths out my skin tone, diminishes redness and hides some marks. It does not give the coverage the liquid kind does right way. You *can* build up coverage and there are some YouTube videos on how to do so. Love this stuff. The packaging is great and durable. The product lasts a long time and compared to many other foundations, the price point isn't bad. Will repurchase as long as it exists!Oh, please make sure you get the right color. If they don't have a shade that works for you, don't purchase it. I usually wear 44 but the girls at Sephora convinced me 45 would work when they ran out. Nope. Way too yellow and pale.

I like this powder foundation, but I'm not in love with it. so far it's the best powder foundation I've used, but it definitely doesn't live up to its name. it's not 24 hour wear, and doesn't control oil that well. if you apply a mattifying primer first, it does stay on your face a bit better. after 5 hours it can look a little like sludge on your oily areas. I do however like wearing this lightly on top of a liquid foundation with a powder brush- gives a nice air brushed look.

I was looking for a long lasting powder foundation with full coverage and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly, based on reviews. I typically wear the palest or 2nd palest shade but in Sephora I was matched to the 4th lightest, #46. I looked at it in daylight in Sephora and loved the coverage and shade match. I was absolutely horrified when 20 minutes later I got back to my car and saw the foundation had oxidized to an awful orange color. By the time I got home 20 minutes later, it was even darker. I have never seen anything like it, I looked like an Oompa Loompa. Returned it to Sephora today and out of curiosity tried the lightest shade, waited 15 mins walking around the store and the same thing happened. Looked like a really bad bronzer.
