The Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer is specially formulated to prep the skin for use with the Kat Von D Lock-It Liquid Foundation. But it can be used to smooth the skin for any liquid or powder foundation.
Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer
I picked this up at Sephora when I stopped by to re-up on Make Up For Ever HD Primer in 0. Unfortuately, it is out in all the stores AND has be removed from the websites so I was directed to this new primer. Needless to say, I’m a little sad about the missing MUFE primer but this looked like a great replacement.
I prefer water-based, creamy primers over silicon based primers because I have medium to dry skin. Silicon based primers also seem to roll up on my skin and don’t really do me any good.
Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer
This water-based primer is lightweight and hydrating while designed to create a protective barrier on the skin to help reduce the appearance of pore and lines.

Pigmentation | This product has no pigmentation. The primer appears white but when applied it becomes translucent.

Longevity | When applied this primer smoothed my skin and appeared to tighten and mask any larger pores. When I applied foundation over it, my foundation did not crease or settle into my skin. The wear was over 8 hours.

Overall | I fell in love with this primer! It was fast absorbing so I didn’t have to sit to long between applying my primer and foundation. The great thing about this product is a little goes a long way. I applied three pumps of this and covered my entire face. My skin was smooth and soft and reminded hydrated all day. It prevented my makeup from settling into creases, lines and pores all day. My makeup remained fresh looking for over 8 hours.
