Questions & Answers for Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation

Question
Do the shades match up with the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation?
I currently use Medium 54 in the liquid foundation, would I pick the Medium 54 in the powder foundation? If not which shades would be suitable for a medium olive, yellow, warmed toned complexion?

I use Kat Von D Foundation L46, so I bought L46 powder, but it actually looks darker than the Foundation. I'll recommend a shade ligther to match your skin.

I use Light 48 in the Kat Von D Lock-It liquid foundation. I bought this powder foundation in the Light 48 because the online Sephora rep suggested it is the correct color. However, the 48 is much too dark for my complexion. I returned it today and purchased the Light 44 and it is perfect. I should add that foundations/powders do not oxidize on me, ever.

Yes, the Liquid Lock-It Foundation & the Powder correspond in color, so the Medium 54 would be perfect for you!

Question
Why isn't there a Light 42?
If the shades correspond to the shades in the liquid foundation, us pale girls are once again not catered to. Light 42 in the liquid is the only foundation pale enough for me, with enough coverage, but unfortunately breaks me out. Thought this would be great, but of course it's probably only for girls who aren't translucent. Why is it such a crime to have fair skin?

I've found the shades differ just a tad, because there are different binders and emollients to keep the compact, well, compact! SO especially on oily skin types, the shades will oxidize and become darker on the face a couple hours later. I am a L44 all year round (ask a Esthetician/MUA I keep it PALE! I'M IMMORTAL jk lol) but am a L44 also in the powder (I wish there was a L42) because it darkens on my skin after a couple of hours...but it definitely gives a matte finish and I adore all of Kat Von D's cosmetics! POINT IS: If you havean oily skin type go a shade lighter with a less dense of a brush for a light finish. If not, stick with your corresponding Lock-It Foundation shade for the compact (and travel touch-up) option Stay Fabulous <3 @ShaycrayMUA!

The shades are not really the same as the liquid. I'm light 48 in liquid and that particular shade was much much darker in the compact foundation!

I am a 42 also in winter and 44 in summer and I found light 45 powder worked pretty well in terms of my summer complexion. Hope that helps and agreed, they need to make 42 in powder form!

Does this powder cover acne?
I have fairly light skin and dark hair and I get bad breakouts but I don't like the feeling of a full coverage liquid foundation so I'm wondering how this powder would work for me.

I have fair skin with monthly breakouts and have been using this makeup for a few months now. I find it covers well if I apply a base layer with the sponge and go back for touch-ups with a concealer brush. For really bad redness days, I sometimes find I need an additional concealer, but it's rare.

I use this over a liquid foundation for night but daily, I just use this powder alone or over a little concealer for spot treatment. Works great!! My skin is a littler on the dry side.

Liquid Foundation tends to play well with normal to dry skin better. Powder for Oily/combination. The best way to avoid the flaky/dry look is exfoliate the skin, moisturize and apply the powder with a brush using the press/roll technique.

I use mine over a primer, and use it by itself, very build able coverage. You can use it over foundation, but if too much is put over foundation, it tends to look a little cakey

It can show the pores without primer. It doesn't settle into the fine lines but, it doesn't hurt to prime the skin for that as well. It's a crime not to prime!

It's best to get color matched with the color IQ in stores or if you have a foundation from Sephora that works with your shade then use that to determine your shade with the color IQ section online.

We would recommend testing this foundation out if you are curious about the wear throughout the day. You can visit your local Sephora to have an application of the Lock It Powder applied :).

Which has more coverage?

I used MUFE's powder foundation before I decided to splurge on this product. It has more coverage and stays on longer. It's coverage is more build able than MUFE's. the only 2 foundations I will use these days are Kat's and MUFE's because they don't make my face oily during the day. You should try Kat's products, if they don't work for you, Sephora has an excellent return policy! ;)

I also use the Tarte in Ivory and got the light 44 in this foundation. I felt it was a little dark for me, but it was the lightest choice. It was "good enough" so I didn't return it, but I still swipe it down my neck just so I don't have an obvious demarcation line since it is just a tad too dark.
