Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation in "Light 45": Review and Swatches
Happy Friday everyone! Today I want to review for you one of Kat Von D cosmetics' top-selling products: the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation. Available in 19 shades, this high coverage foundation has a whopping 21% pigment formulation that's opaque enough to cover tattoos! To see how well it does at covering blemishes and smoothing out the skin, click.......

What it is:
-High coverage foundation
-Transfer-resistant 24 hour wear
-Polymers absorb oil for matte finish
-Emollients keep skin smooth and hydrated

Packaging:
The foundation comes in a very fancy double layered plastic tube equipped with a handy pump dispenser. This is definitely the fanciest foundation I own, check out that KVD engraving!

Formulation & Coverage:
When they say this is a full coverage foundation, they mean it. The formulation of the Lock-It Tattoo may actually be more opaque than some of the concealers I own. The foundation covers up blemishes and acne scars like tomorrow and it doesn't feel as heavy as a cream concealers.
The formulation is quite thick and I find that it sets rather quickly, which makes it hard to blend smoothly and I feel like I need more product than usual. I almost have to do a dabbing motion because the product clings to the skin almost immediately upon application. The finish is matte and the wear is very impressive.

The shade I have here is the "Light 45", it matches with my neckline and all but it is still too light for me (in the tube it looked a lot darker). As you can see, the product basically preps the skin, erasing any hyperpigmentation, redness, and blemishes and blurring all the pores and fine lines.

Overall:
If you are looking for a high coverage foundation, whether it's for everyday or special occasions, this is definitely an amazing option. Although I love the way it covers up pretty much any imperfection, I don't like the fact that it's not very blendable. If you are going to wear this foundation, it has to be applied with care and the look you attain, albeit very flawless, will not be very natural-looking. But with that said, this is some good stuff!
