Review: Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation


If you are like me, then you struggle with oily skin no matter what season it is. I have tried many primers, foundations, and setting sprays in attempt to keep my face oil-free. However, no matter how hard I try, I will forever carry blotting sheets in my purse. But now!!!! I think I may have found my holy grail foundation.

Kat Von D’s Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is said to be a “high-pigment foundation for full coverage with a long-lasting, beautiful finish.”

I do not think I have bad skin so I was a bit hesitant to try a full coverage foundation. I was worried that the foundation would feel heavy on my skin and cake up on me. But I thought, what the hell?! Let’s try this sucker out. This foundation is supposedly wonderful for gals with oily skin so I wanted to put this to the test. This foundation applies beautifully with my Real Technique’s Expert Face Brush. It is very matte but I found that throughout the day, my skin looked a bit glowy.

I absolutely freaking love this foundation! My face no longer gets oily after 3 hours. I found that with this product, I was able to get about 6 hours of wear without getting oily. I don’t think I will ever find a product that will keep my face oil-free for the whole day but this foundation works pretty damn well. I HIGHLY recommend this to those with oily or acne-prone skin because this gives the craziest coverage! The only areas I find that I need concealer is for my dark under-eye circles. This can easily cover up hyper-pigmentation without looking mask-like. If you are in need of a new foundation and want something to keep you matte, go out and get this product!
