Revisited: Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation



I have always had a love hate relationship with Kat Von D products. I tried some of the products out, completely fell in love with them, but what I hated was that I had to keep ordering it from Sephora and getting it shipped over and it would cost me a fortune to get it and then I would have to pay taxes and duties meaning every product nearly ended up double the price!
But, now that they actually sell Kat Von D Beauty in Debenhams here in the UK I thought that now is the perfect time to do a little revisited post and see if I still like this foundation or if it is a little past it for me. To be honest, this is the first time trying this back out in years, it has been pushed that far back in my drawer that I forgot that I even had it!
First thing when I started to pump out this foundation was just how thick it was. In my last revisited post with the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation I mentioned how thick that foundation was, but this was something else completely. I feel like this stuff could be used to spackle a wall with because it really is that thick. The consistency of this really never used to bother me, I think back then all of the foundations I were using was quite thick so it was just the norm to me at the time.


Now, not so much. This year I have tried so many good, full coverage foundations and they have been lightweight, so this just felt very intense for me. It felt that when I had just one layer of this blended in that it was quite thick.
Don’t get me wrong though, with this thick foundation you do get absolute full coverage. And when I say that, I mean that this really is intense. The test for me is always the hyper pigmentation around my cheeks and just a tiny bit of this covered it straight away. No matter what tool I used to apply it looked perfect every single time whether it be a brush, sponge or even my fingers.
That is one of the things that I still love about this foundation, no matter when or how I use it, it is always consistent and performs really well and covers everything that I need it to.
Another good thing that I have realised from trying this out again is the staying power is amazing. I can put this on at 7am in the morning and go about my day, when I tried this out again I even went to the gym and it looked perfect afterwards. I did have to powder once through the day, but that is really good for me and foundations due to my oily skin. I think this is one of the reasons why I used to love it so much because I could literally do anything and not have to worry.
I did find that this shade did oxidise on me slightly through the day. I started the day off looking nice and golden and by the end of the day I was a certain shade of orange, but it wasn’t anything too drastic and it isn’t the end of the world. It could have been rectified by a lighter coloured face powder to try and balance it out a touch.
Personally, after my flashback I can see why I did love this foundation once upon a time, but I guess I do have the same verdict that I had for the MAC Studio Fix. After trying newer things by different brand there are things out there that perform just as well and cover as much without being so thick on your face.
To some people, I can see that this foundation will work really well. For some people with troublesome skin the thickness is the key to covering things up so this foundation would be ideal. Not to mention that there is a huge shade range in this Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer, so there should be something out there that is right for you.


As normal with all posts on my blog I will leave a link down below to this foundation in case you want to check it out. Make sure you leave me a comment down below if you have tried this foundation and let me know what you think and how it was on your skin!

  1. I've been curious about trying this foundation for a while! I have a lot of acne scars and discolouration so after hearing a lot of people say this is incredible coverage I'm excited to try it, although I'm not too fond of the sound of it oxidising! xxx

  3. This has been on my to-try list for a while, but I've also kind of moved past the super-thick full-coverage formulas, so it might not be for me these days!

    1. I'm the same, you can get the same coverage now with something much more lightweight!

  4. I feel exactly the same as you about foundation. The full coverage foundations used to completely win me over years ago when I just wanted to cover my problematic skin, nowadays I spend way more time on skincare and choosing products which actually nourish my skin. I probably would have loved this back in the day too, but now I'm not so sure I'd use it much!

    1. Exactly, I would much rather use something like the Nars Sheer Glow now, but there is no denying that this is a good full coverage foundation!

  5. The first time I ever tried out this foundation, I wasn't a fan with how it looked and laid on my skin. A few weeks later I gave it another shot and fell in love with it. It began my holy grail foundation. Nearly a year later the love faded away and I haven't used it in over three years. I have been wanting to pick up a sample of their lighter shades to give it a try again. Who knows how I may feel years later.

    1. I know, the first few times I used this I was unsure about it because of how thick it was. It wasn't until I really started to blend it in and work with it a little more that I really started to like it!
