The Lock-It Powder Foundation is a pressed powder light to medium coverage matte foundation added to the Kat Von D line. I picked up this foundation because when I saw it at the store it matched my complexion perfectly, which is extremely rare. Normally, I have to use several shades or mix shades to get the perfect shade to disappear on my skin.

Pigmentation | This foundation has good coverage without streaking or appearing too dry. The pigmentation of the Lock-It Tattoo is quite opaque and can covers moles, sun spots or minor scars. I used Kat Von D Lock-it Powder foundation in 74 and it gives really good coverage. One thing that you want to note if you plan on trying these shades is focus on the shade not the number. I got the 74 but the 66, 71 and 72 are a lot darker. I couldn’t figure out why this was the case in the liquid and the powder, but it’s something to be aware of.
Application | The application is dusty and matte. Great even coverage. It is described to have no-transfer properties but it left impresses on my hands and shirt about 4 hours after wearing alone.
Texture | The texture is quite dry. It’s not as smooth as I hoped. It easier to apply with a smudge than a brush because the pigment sticks to the bristles.
Longevity | The coverage is great but the no-tranfer properties do not last long on semi-oily skin. The powder foundation transferred and seemed to fade after only 4 hours of normal wear without a primer.
