This is a difficult review to write because of my love hate relationship with this foundation. My skin without makeup is good texture, faint fine lines, nice looking skin with mild blemishes. This is the foundation I would use to get full coverage "perfect" looking skin for pictures or a full makeup look, but up close or natural looking? Nope. It's thick, and like many people say, works best if you work quickly and use a damp sponge picking it up from a small dab on the back of your hand. You can achieve full flawless fabulosity. It absolutely will cling to dry patches if you have any and your skin isnt prepped with moisturizer and primer. It's not a throw in your bag and go foundation. Frankly, I'm a slap it on kind of lady, I want my skin to be more even and luminous with some redness and freckles covered up. I'm not prepared to put in the work. However, last year's slew of high coverage liquid makeup from NARS, mufe,my, ud all were not compatible with my combo skin. By this I mean within 20 minutes, my skin pumped out oil slicks and cracked those foundations like continents shifting across my face. I believe the cause is the type of gel base they use for those other foundations. This foundation is distinctly different. More like a cream base that dries matte. Wear time is super long. I don't get that awful oil slick response. So, for me it does exactly what it advertises. But it takes work to get there. But if I am looking for true full coverage in a liquid, this is one of my few existing options that is compatible with my type of skin. If you've tried everything so far with no success, you probably should try this one since it's in a category by itself as formulations go.

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation.
Not much of a full coverage i shall say. 8/10 perhaps for the coverage part. it was fine for mw as i do not need any full coverage. But, product is too drying! And does not spread or easy to blend. Works a little better with the primer tho. Not worth thd price.

I really love this foundation. They have a large array of shades that will fit so many people, which is so important! I think she also recently added even more shades. This is full coverage, but the way I apply it It looks fairly natural. I apply one or two pumps to the back of my hand and then apply it with a damp beauty blender. It's really beautiful and I haven't had problems with the foundation separating or slipping off of my face. It also hasn't broken me out which was a big fear of mine when trying out this foundation due to the high coverage!

I do love the full coverage of this foundation and its definitely full!!!I apply it with a flat top brush or beauty blender, it does set pretty quickly and dries down to a matte set finish. Feels smooth and sets after a few minutes so easy to apply powder over. I do feel it looks a bit chalky compared to UD All Nighter foundation. .. It's not such a flawless finish. But it does last very well and stays oil free. The shade range could be better.. I got 45 which is slightly too dark.. 42 was too light.. 44 was pinky. I may have been better off with 44 though in hindsight. This colour is about NC20 Mac (no 45). Exactly the same as my Bone Estee Lauder Doublewear.. Which is also slightly too dark.But I will use it with my white foundation mixer! I love the bottle as well.

Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation recently launched at the swedish Sephoras with a wider shade selection and that got me very excited since I had previously wished to purchase one of the foundations but had not managed to find a shade that was light enough for me. So when I found the light 41 shade - I bought it even though I had heard mixed reviews on the the formula that many claimed to be was full coverage but cakey and sort of dry. Since I am a major fan of Kat Von D, her brand's attitude and everything she represents and is associated with, I bought it - besides, it was the perfect shade of ghostly Casper that matched my complexion quite nice. I did personally not find the foundation to be as "cakey" as others seemed to have. However, one of the problems I had with this foundation was that some of the product seemd to cling onto certain parts of my skin which made my skintexture less smooth appearing altough my skin did certainly not look terrible because the coverage was still great. Another issue for me was that the foundation was really, I mean really, drying for my skin. I would wear a very heavy moistouriser underneath to make it work. I will however admit to a pro of the dryness which might be that my foundation remained put on my face throughout long evenings since there were no dewy parts or product that rubbed off.To sum it up I would say that it is not for me an ideal everyday foundation and that I believe that normal to oily will enjoy the foundation best however I really enjoy wearing it to special events.

HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION! seriously folks, i read some negative reviews of this and i couldn't for the life of me figure it out, unless someone did not need or want a totally full coverage foundation. it IS indeed the fullest coverage i've ever used besides dermablend, but it is so easy to work with as long as you move quickly (it dries pretty quick) and use a damp beauty blender, you're gonna slay! full coverage, oil control (with a good primer), excellent coverage, natural looking, and looks good on camera? well i say YES please and i will continue to buy this product when i run out of it.

After I decided to only buy cruelty free foundations, I had to find a new foundation as my holy grail (CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation) is not cruelty free! :( I had seen amazing things about the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation for oily skin gals. I have extremely oily skin, after washing the oil will begin to surface again about an hour later. However, even though my skin is extremely oily, I definitely can get dry patches sometimes around my mouth and nose (not sure how that works).This foundation did not live up to my expectation. It was so very dry. It feels like you're wearing a mask when it dries, I just want to scratch it off. It's quite full coverage, although it didn't completely cover the redness on my cheeks and you can still see some acne spots, but I can't complain because no foundation will cover that. I personally hate the coverage, it's just way too thick! But if you're looking for something that's very very full coverage and won't budge, this is the one for you. It didn't get oily quickly either. Very disappointing for me considering I payed around $65NZD for this foundation, however I think this will work for some people better than others.

Been really into perfecting my base makeup as of late. Also, I feel like EVERY cosmetic company has been coming out with full coverage offerings to that end. Finally gave this a try. Literally one of the most pigmented foundations I have ever used. One pump works on my entire face. And not just works, it covers everything! I love when a foundation smells like paint. It means this ain't for them shrinking violets who "just want something light, not cakey," No, hell no! Give me all the cake face in the world. ALL. OF. THE. CAKE. FACE. I do not spend 20+ minutes on my makeup to LOOK EXACTLY LIKE MYSELF. Ok, that wasn't supposed to be a rant. I just love makeup. It is art. And that starts with a flawless base. Which brings me back to the foundation, I use the ELF powder brush and swipe it onto my skin. Covers like a dream, blanks out any imperfection and sets well with powder. The lasting power is good. And my face stays matte enough. Oily girls know that oil will still break through no matter what. I will repurchase if I ever run out. It is $35 which seems like a steal compared to other foundations at Sephora. I love that it is a little less expensive. So fricken pigmented!

Okay when I say this is full coverage, I literally mean FULL COVERAGE. Never used a foundation as pigmented as this before and found that its very specific to work with.I got this in the shade Light 45 Warm which is good for those with light skin with yellow undertones. It doesn't match my skin perfectly but this was the closest colour I could find for my skin. If like me you have very pale skin with yellow undertones I wouldn't advise getting this shade.Applying this I would recommend using a primer water and primer with a moisturizing property as this foundation is SUPER matte, thus you need something to prevent the cakeyness of it. Dot this onto your face in and blend in sections as once this touches your skin its pretty much drying so you need to make sure nothing dries before you've blended properly. I found most people use a beauty blender with this which works great, but using a stippling brush has also worked fine for me.Its a good price at £27 as you get a lot of product and a little really does go a long way. This product is made for those looking for a full coverage, so if you're not don't waste your money buying this product then complaining its too cakey/fake etc. This product is not really made for mature skin as it does set into lines/wrinkles very easily.I don't wear this product for everyday use but its good for events/going out as its going to give you long lasting shine-free face for the whole night. Overall a good product to have for special occasions.

This is not for the over 35 crowd. I got major cake face and yes, it's all in how it's applied. Every line I knew I had was revealed-- and I discovered a whole lot more. Now I need a botox shot for my ego.Well, I don't want to work that hard to apply foundation and since I got a sample tester, I refuse to buy it. If I want to look like great aunt Louisa in Fla, I will buy a whole case... but for now, no thanks.
