Kat Von D Lock it Tattoo Foundation

Hello! Since I'm obsessed with makeup I couldn't resist not having this in my collection. I had heard so much about it all over the internet and from friends.. so I caved. Kat Von D has a lot of tattoos, so her foundation is made to promote full coverage. Well let me tell you it definitely is full coverage! If you apply it on half of your face and compare it with the other half you will see a huge difference! Alright so let me tell you the pros and cons. This foundation is long wearing, it lasts all day, packaged with a pump (which I love), its very pigmented and a little goes a long way. What I disliked/noticed was that if you apply too much It can make it look cakey. So start with a little and add more if you need it. Also, I would categorize my skin type as combination. My skin is pretty normal except my chin tends to be a bit drier than the rest of my face, and in that spot I noticed the foundation a lot more than the rest of my face. So what I'm thinking is that since the foundation is so thick, if you have dry skin you might not like it as much. What I would recommend is before you apply the foundation, you apply a good moisturizer and primer. That will keep your face hydrated and make the foundation look better. Overall I do like this product but in my opinion I would probably wear this if I was going out and wanted my foundation to last all night and something more lightweight in the day. I got mine in shade medium 53 and purchased it at Sephora Click Here 

I swatched the inner part of my arm. You can see the difference where my vein is.

If you don't know what shade to get, Sephora has a new program called color IQ. They will go over your skin with a machine and that will match your foundation in every brand they have.

  1. I feel like I could really use this because I much prefer high coverage foundations than sheerer ones.
