Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation Price and Review: I have very fair (NC15) oily/combination skin. I got the shade ‘Light 41 Neutral’ (which I believe is the lightest shade?) It was actually too light for me..
wow, I’ve never had this problem! No biggie though, just applied powder and bronzer and that evened things out. Their shade range is AWESOME and they really cater for all skin tones from very light to very deep. The packaging is so cool, very unique.
Love the dispenser system. It has no lid. Only thing is very thick plastic covering, which isn’t the most eco friendly. Don’t think it’s recyclable either. Still one of the best packaging I’ve seen for a foundation.
The formula is slightly thick, FULL coverage. A little goes a long way and it’s a tad hard to blend. But once it stays, it stays! Def best for oily skin. It lasts really well all day which is great. Only place is fades is in the nose area by the end of the day which is expected anyway. Got this in New Zealand for NZ $49. It’s med-pricey in New Zealand, however I think this is a pretty good price for the quality of the product compared to other brands.
I would repurchase this. I have very oily skin so I usually shy away from thick foundations because it will separate and slide off. This foundation was a pleasant surprise.
It does not feel thick when it’s on. Honestly I could wear it all day and not feel it on me at all BUT it does look like it’s on. It’s not a flawless foundation, it’s a full coverage foundation. I don’t need concelear for most blemishes. I apply with a damp beauty blender and it applies beautifully IF I exfoliate, moisturize, and prime.
If I don’t exfoliate it will cling to every dry patch it can find, however, if it’s not too bad they slowly disappear because I’m just that oily. One pump is just enough to cover my entire face evenly. It did have a strange smell but I’d take a weird smell than a fragrance any day. I have tried applying with brushes but its so face drying that the brush doesn’t move it well and it streaks, the beauty blender was the best way to apply for me. It’s not a perfect match on me, it’s slightly lighter but I guess it oxidizes to a good shade because after 30 mins of wearing it, it warms to a really good match. If you’re dry I would stay away unless you can find a good moisturizing primer.
