Good morning Beauties!
My second #foundationfix feature is the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation! This foundation is very popular in the makeup lover world so i feel its one worth reviewing.
Lets kick it off with what the Company claims this foundation will do for you: ‘This foundation has 21% pigment (wow), has a blend of siliconic elastomers and esters which bind the formula so your foundation is fade free.’
There really wasn’t too much on the website about this product other then what i just showed you which is weird, although this foundation is really hyped about its full coverage which explains why it boasts about 21% pigment.
This foundation comes in a plastic cylinder and has an airless chamber to avoid contamination and helps to maintain the foundations consistency. I think the packaging is very nice, i believe Kat Von D designs all her own patterns in her makeup line which is pretty cool, and it adds a nice touch to her line. The bottle also comes with a little plastic lid which i recommend keeping as it prevents you from accidently pushing out product while its in your bag or suitcase etc.
HOW IT APPLIES/WEARS:
This foundation is extremely thick, in saying that i believe you only need a small amount of product as the pigmentation is so full on that you wouldn’t want to go overboard and end up looking cake. I use about a pea size amount and only one layer is necessary to get full coverage with a beauty blender. If you prefer a sheer, natural or skin like foundation this one is not for you! It sets matte and does tend to look a little un-natural. I mainly reach for this if i am looking for flawless coverage for a special event, this foundation is not one would wear on a daily basis personally. The foundation wears really well throughout the day, staying matte and does not fade or slide off so it is great when you are really relying on your foundation to last all day and night! I really like matte finishes so i do find this foundation to be flattering on my oily skin but only when used in a small amount, its easy to go overboard with this one! See below for photos of the foundation on my skin and also with and without flash on my wrist.
I believe this foundation would be great for makeup artists to have in their kit for photo shoot makeup, or for anyone who loves a good matte, full coverage foundation. You get a great amount of product for the price considering how little you need to use. This product is also vegan. The only issue i have with this is it makes my skin break out like crazy! I am assuming it has something to do with the pigmentation as i normally don’t break out or if i do its no where near as bad as what it is with this foundation. I would recommend using this for special events or for occasions where you need your foundation to hold up through a long, hot day. I probably wouldn’t personally re purchase this as i just don’t use it enough! Have you tried this foundation? Whats your thoughts on it?
I hope you guys enjoyed my review, have a beautiful day!
