So i bought this foundation because everyone raved about how full coverage it is and i totally agree. Definitely the most full coverage foundation i have ever seen. I don't like using this as a foundation all over my face but rather use it for spot concealing. I dont have terrible skin but i do have acne scars and just use this for spot concealing. Since this is so thick you wont get the no makeup makeup look and its super matte. I have normal skin and it made my skin look almost kind of dry. I love this foundation as a concealer but not for all over foundation. Another thing is since it is so thick you need to work to take it off or you will get clogged pores and acne.
This foundation is full coverage, matte and long lasting. It is exactly what I wanted in a foundation. I don't have any problems with it transferring. It matches my complexion perfectly. It glides on well but it is a thick paste like consistency Kind of like a full coverage concealer. It dries quickly but not so quick that you need to rush through your application. I really enjoy using this foundation. It doesn't give you a mask like cake face appearance which isn't very flattering so thats really good. I find that I do not need any concealer when using this product. You also do not need more than 1 full pump for full coverage (more like a little more than half a pump) if you have blemishes and redness you'd like to cover up. For reference In MAC I am an NC 35. In KVD Lock it Tatto Foundation I am a Medium 53.
Fullest coverage available in my opinion. The packaging is amazing! This has lasted me so long. It hardly takes me any to cover my whole face. It lasts all day long and looks matte-dewy all day. It goes on even and is truly amazing. The best foundation I've ever used. It's pricy but lasts so long it's worth it. Seriously amazing! Definitely worth a try.
This was way too cakey for my liking. It IS possible to be full coverage and not have a cakey appearance. It took forever to set and made my oily skin even more oily. Not impressed at all.
I love Kat von D's cosmetic line! Definitely a full coverage foundation, dont need much concealer after this, does make me a bit oily after a long time of wearing it, but no spots or unsightly build up of this on my face, it stays even! However it does transfer, so be careful around white shirts lol! Overall, one of my favorite full coverage liquif foubdations.
For awhile now, I've been looking for a foundation that seems like it could withstand all the conditions of a rock show. Lasting 11-14 hours and sweatproof. I finally tried this product today and I feel like this could be the one. I'm in the shade Light-Medium 52 and after it oxidizes, it matches my Asain skin perfectly. I found it to be super easy to blend with my Real Techniques buffing brush. I hadn't even used a primer. It's not waterproof, but it comes pretty close. I put some on the back of my hand (without a primer) and tried rubbing it off with a q-tip. It finally started to come off if I rubbed it hard enough, but it does come off easily with makeup remover.
The only two downsides are that it makes dry skin more noticeable (Which won't be a problem for me after winter). And I noticed a somewhat chemical-ish smell. But it doesn't bother me too much. Overall, this is an amazing foundation. I would repurchase, but you don't need to use that much, and there's a ton of product, so it'll be awhile before I do.
I bought this product in light 44, I was matched by the girl at Sephora, and it seemed to match better than any product I've previously used, but I found it to oxidize rather badly through out the day, to my surprise.
I was so excited to try it out at first because it's the first time I've come to splurge on a higher end product, as I usually stick with drug store brands. I was really disappointed by the coverage. I apply it with an Elf powder brush and I stipple it in. I tried using powder with it once and I found it looked extremely cakey and unappealing. Every review I've seen tends to rave about how highly pigmented it is and the outstanding coverage. While I do have some minor acne and post acne scarring, the really annoying red/pink marks, this foundation took two layers to even make all that non noticeable. It didn't last as long as it claims, or others have claimed, either. I can wear it through out my usual 10 hour day but definitely not without a couple touch ups, unless I just don't care that day.
I'm not going to repurchase this product, I have no desire to at all. I'm just waiting for my bottle to run out now, as I mix it with moisturizer, because I hate to waste product especially when paying that price.
I think I've definitely seen better results with drugstore foundations.
What a disappointment ! Lol, I really wanted to be able to love this foundation, it was full coverage as I desperately needed and the bottle was so beautiful. However, it is much too heavy for me, it was like spreading gunk on my face, it never set & it transferred sooo easily. Had it for one day and returned it.
This foundation seriously means business. They weren't kidding when they said "full coverage". I really don't even need much concealer after using this stuff. The foundation is like a creamy whipped paste and a little goes a long way. For reference, i'm nc42 oily combination acne prone skin. This stuff keeps me matte for practically the whole day. I initially bought shade m62 but that was too dark. Then I tried one of the new shades m57 and it is PERFECT for my nc42 skin!! I wouldn't recommend this foundation for dry skin though because it is not moisturising at all.
The pump bottle is wonderful. I usually do half a pump first and then more if needed because it is so full coverage. There is no chemically smell or anything.
One con I noticed is that it didn't glide on as well when I used my smashbox primer. But it looks perfect on bare skin. It can look like "makeup" so I found that using my beauty blender gives the nicest most natural finish.
This is the closest I have come to an HG foundation! I have acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation, and strongly prefer a full-coverage foundation. Kat Von D's Lock It definitely provides the best coverage out of all the foundations I've tried so far. With this foundation, you will not need concealer. It is a very thick foundation and dries quickly, so you need to blend it immediately after applying it. It is a bit heavy and can slightly highlight dry skin and pores, but using a moisturizer can help with this greatly. The foundation has excellent staying power and lasts the whole day, particularly when I set it with my Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray. The shade selection is very rich and caters to both warm and cool skin tones. Also, weirdly enough, I've noticed that my acne has been quite a bit better since I have started using this foundation. This is just a correlation, so I'm not saying that it was definitely the foundation that reduced my acne, but I noticed that some other reviewers said the same thing, so I wanted to let you know my experience with it. In sum, I am extremely happy with this foundation and use it every day.
