Kat Von D Lock It Foundation Review

This foundation was another one that I got in my Sephora haul. I hadn’t really been looking at this but I thought seen as thought I was going to get the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer I may as well get the matching foundation, things like that just help to sooth my OCD.

Firstly, I really have to say that I love the packaging of this foundation. The bottle itself looks like it has been tattoos, which is just perfect for a Kat Von D foundation. I myself love tattoos, I wouldn’t have any more myself and to be honest the one which I have on my wrist I don’t like anymore but I love tattoos on other people… when done tastefully.  

I like the fact that this foundation comes with a stopped on the end. Because it doesn’t come with a lid on it can be quite easy to press the pump without meaning to. But it comes with a small black stopper so you don’t make a mess all over your shizzle.

The product I was dubious about. Especially when I saw how deep the colour was in comparison to the Koh Gen Do foundation. But it turns out that this foundation is more suited to my skin tone than the other one. I got a yellow base foundation because it works best for me and my self-tanner.

The product to me feels almost like a mousey liquid. I pumped one squirt out onto my pallet and it was so thick. It spiralled up and held its shape which just shows how thick it is. But when I applied it to my face it didn’t feel like it was a thick and cakey foundation.  I would say that the consistency is thicker than the MAC Studio Fix Fluid but to me this feels much nicer on the skin.

The coverage is intense, which is exactly what I like. Before I tried this product I sampled the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer and it was so thin I thought this was going to be the same consistency, but I’m so glad that it isn’t anything like that!

I take this and blend it onto the skin using a Morphe M439. This brush is so densely packed so it really buffs the foundation into the skin and it really does do all the work for you.

It has a matte finish which is exactly what I am after but it isn’t drying in anyway. I wore this all day in a very warm office and it stayed put and didn’t move throughout the day. I also found that I didn’t need to touch up using my Chanel Vitalumiere Compact as I normally have to when I use other foundations such as the YSL Touché Éclat or the Maybelline Fit Me.

I do really like this foundation and I will continue to use the whole thing, but I’m not sure if I would repurchase it.  Even though I do find the product great to purchase this in the UK it is nearly double the retail price and it can work out pricey shipping it in from the US. I will keep you posted to whether I will be repurchasing or not!



  1. this sounds really nice, I love a full coverage foundation but I'm not always a fan of a thick texture so I may have to try a sample!

    1. I would definitely suggest trying a sample out!

  2. I love the look and sound of this! Definitely on my wishlist now! Will have to look at some swatches online I think though, I wouldn't know where to start with shade matching without seeing it in store and I think it's only going to be in Debenhams in London to start with!

  3. Thanks for sharing, I think I will have to find a sample as I like decent coverage but nothing too heavy :-) x
