Kat Von D Lock It Concealer Review

I know that you guys are probably going to go mad at me that this is another concealer review, but I just cannot stop buying them for some reason. This was actually another product that I got in my first Sephora order from a couple of months back and I am only just getting around to trying everything out and writing my reviews for you guys. I was so excited to finally get around to trying something out by Kat Von D. I have heard nothing but good things about the brand and at the time when I placed this order, you could only get her cosmetics from America, so I went ahead and bought the foundation and corresponding concealer.

I think this first really interested me when I saw Kat Von D herself using it in a makeup tutorial and she covered the tattoos on her face using this. She only needed the smallest amount of product and everything was covered within an instant and that spoke to me straight away, firstly for my dark circles and secondly to cover my foul tattoo that I had on my wrist when I was 15 years old. I am a bridesmaid in the summer and I need something to cover up my ink, because it is probably my biggest regret and I would hate for anybody to see it on the wedding day or in images afterward.

I will admit that it took quite a while for this to come in from America but considering the distance that my order travelling to get to me, it is nothing that I can really moan about. I did try to buy this from a UK retailer either on eBay or a small makeup company, but they were charging an arm and a leg, and I would never pay through the nose just to get my hands on a product from the other side of the pond. I think now they are actually selling Kat Von D in Debenhams, which will be bloody amazing for the future. In the end though, ordering through Sephora and getting it shipped to the UK, didn’t really make it any more expensive, than normal.

First up in this review I am going to talk about the packaging. This is a squeezy tube and to be honest I think it is bloody lovely. I just think that the packaging of this product is so aesthetically pleasing with the whole tattoo theme that is running through the range. I like that it is in a squeezy tube because it means that it is easy to use and great for travelling with. I feel like packaging like this really does divide people because they would rather have a tube and a wand, but I will admit that it really doesn’t concern me either way. As long as the product is good, the packaging is pretty obsolete.

First thing I noticed when I received this concealer was how thin the consistency was. I opened it up while I was at work and went to squirt a small amount out and ended up covering my hand in it because it was so runny. So, I got home and put some on my pallet and applied it under my eyes and it really is as thin as water. I thought with it being branded as super high coverage that it would have a thick consistency like the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation or like the Tarte Creaseless Concealer.

I applied this to my wrist where my tattoo is and attempted to cover it. One layer really wasn’t enough, I would say that nearly 3 layers of it were needed to anywhere near cover it. The video that I watched made it look much easier than it actually was. But once the layers were applied it did cover it completely.

I wouldn’t say that this is full coverage, it is medium and has the potential to be full when it is built up. I liked how this applied underneath my eyes, I do really have to brighten and conceal this area and this is great for that. Because this is so thin by using a MAC 217 brush it just blended out to nothingness so perfectly. It concealed everything that needed hiding and didn’t feel heavy or cakey.



  1. It sounds good, I especially like thin concealers but I do prefer something full coverage over medium. I highly recommend the Tarte Shape Tape which is really full coverage, slightly thicker than I prefer but you literally need two dots under your eyes to look like you have slept on a cloud for three days. Amazing, I will have a review up later this week! Thanks for sharing, will skip this xxx

    1. I really want to try the Shape Tape but having such a hard time getting it in the right shade here in the UK!

  2. I'm surprised to hear it's so watery, I definitely would have expected something more akin to MAC Prolongwear Concealer!

  3. That is exactly what I was thinking too!
