What it is:A high-pigment foundation for full coverage that leaves a long-lasting, beautiful finish. What it does:Kat Von D created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed with proprietary pigments to match a broad range of skintones with bold, full coverage. The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance. Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish, and the added emollients provide a velvety texture for perfectly-smooth, hydrated skin. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens - Synthetic Fragrances What else you need to know:Lock-It Foundation’s innovative airless chamber prevents contamination to protect and maintain the creamy consistency so that every pump delivers a precisely measured, fresh dose to flawlessly cover your entire face.

Questions & Answers for Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation

Question
How long does the bottle last?
I know you don't need much to cover your whole face, maybe a pea size, but does anyone know how long the bottle is expected to last you?

It lasts me about 2 months. I use it for full coverage and with a foundation brush. I use only a little concealer with it and very little powder. I wish it lasted me a year but I have scars from previous acne.

I would say at least a year. I use about a pea size amount which gives me a medium coverage and it will easily last a year, maybe more. I apply it once a day and sometimes twice.

A lot less than a pea size. Start with a dab and a concealer brush, seriously.

Question
What is the best way to apply this?
I'm using a sponge currently, and the foundation doesn't seem to fully blend into my skin. It looks a bit cakey in some spots. Would a brush work better?

DAMP Beauty Blender!!!! I used to use a brush with this foundation but then I switched to the BB and will never go back. Makes it so much less cakey and gives a flawless finish!! Do yourself a favor and try it with a damp beauty blender

Actually, I use my fingers. I have always had better luck with direct application, especially of a product that is thick and has a lot of coverage. Just be sure your hands are very clean.....LOL

Question
Would Light 42 work for me?
I originally bought this foundation in Light 44, since I kept reading that Light 42 is insanely light and that unless I'm Casper's cousin it will be too light. However, even though Light 44 is fairly close to my undertone (maybe just a bit too warm), it's just a bit too dark for me. In MAC terms, I would be about an N5-10ish. Should I give the 42 a try? I just don't want to waste my time (always have to order online because I don't have a nearby Sephora) on something that would be completely wrong for me. I love the coverage and finish of this foundation, so I'd really like to find a match. Thoughts?

Since you already have 44, why not get 42 and mix the two? They really should have a shade in between those two are they are quite different.

answer 2
There's a big difference between those shades. 42 is very pasty looking with almost no color to it. I had samples of both and pretty much had the same issue. 44 is slightly too dark for me, but 42 is definitely too white. I wish there was a shade in the middle.

Rimmel Stay Matte is a nice less expensive alternative and my go-to powder with this particular foundation. I also like the MUFE powder, but I actually like the Rimmel better, go figure!

I use a buffing brush because the products is very thick. I use the buffing brush by real techniques, but i'm sure you could find a comparable one like the Sephora one... http://www.sephora.com/pro-buffing-brush-62-P313019?skuId=1419472

i was told by the person that works there- to apply it directly onto the brush and onto my face. He recommended a flat foundation brush.

Question
What type of finish is this?
Is it super matte, or demi matte/satin? Because I prefer more of a demi matte. I have oily skin in my tzone but I feel extremely matte foundations look sort of cakey and dry on me even with just a thin layer after a few hours.

I definitely agree with you about how super full/matte finishes look cakey. This has more of a demi matte finish but please read my review before purchasing for more details about the product :)

Best of beauty luck,

I would say its semi- matte. I also add a couple of luster drops by Josie Maran or Make Up For Ever for a slight dewy finish.

I have sensitive skin and have no problems with this foundation. It never causes breakout for me either. It will definitely cover acne. I don't need to use a separate concealer when I use this. Sometimes I use this as a concealer for certain areas when I am using my drugstore foundation (I like to save this foundation for special occasions since it is always sold out).

This product is oil free and would work great for sensitive/acne prone skin types. I would recommend getting color matched at your local Sephora store before you purchase though. This foundation is highly pigmented and the shades can vary quite drastically.

Try the next shade up Light 46, Light 44 is a beige undertone which might make you look a bit washed out (atleast I think it did on me). The Light 46 is a pink undertone and matched my skin perfectly!

I ordered the Light 18 in Kat's concealer, and that shade was great. So, I ordered the Light 44 in the foundation, since the description of the shade was the same as the description for the concealer, but the foundation was way, way too light. So, be careful with that. As fair as I am, I would still have to order one of the medium shades in the foundation, and I am never a medium shade in anything else.

I've been using the Kat Von D concealer brush. I would not recamend this. It's too small and flat. I'd try a sponge or larger brush.
