I’ve been a long time fan of Kat Von D so to meet her a few months back, was such a big moment for me! She hosted a beautiful presentation of her Fall 2016 collection which recently launched. Included in the collection is a relaunch of the Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation, Kat Von D Lock-it Concealer Creme, Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder and a range of brushes. I’ve been playing with the collection since receiving it and here are my thoughts!
Kat Von D Lock-it Concealer Creme ($26) – love the new concealer! It’s creamy, easily blends and offers full coverage. I use it under my eyes and areas that need more coverage. If you’d like to splurge on multiple shades they can be used to contour, especially since they launched shade “White Out” as part of the range which can be used from anything to contour, lighting a foundation or brighten under eyes — I even dab a little on my lips to create a slight ombre effect.
Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation ($35) – The relaunch of her best-selling foundation, carries the same thing, long wear formula in a new packaging and more shades. Now available in 30 shades, it’s a full coverage formula that you only need a little bit of since it’s so thick.It’s the opposite of the concealer that’s so blendable. With the foundation you only need the tiniest bit — one small pump, takes out discoloration, stops shines and hides blemishes, scarring and just about anything else. It’s ultra matte and lasts all day but can be hard to work with since it’s so thick, I usually cut it with a primer (I’ve heard hers is really good but I’ve been using Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer). It’s a very intense foundation otherwise and one you need to shade match correctly. There’s no budging with this foundation. It doesn’t move and it also doesn’t adjust to your skin tone so make sure you get your correct shade!
Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder ($30) – I absolutely love this powder. The new translucent loose powder helps sets makeup and blends beautifully. I’ve been shiny all summer and it absorbs all my oils and leaves skin so soft. No weird white cast, it’s weightless and contains micro-blurring technology for an instant soft-matte finish. I hope they launch it in a smaller size as well for when I travel.
Kat Von D also launched a range of brushes as part of the collection, the Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush ($34) and Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush ($24), Lock-It Setting Powder Brush ($38), and Lock-It Precision Powder Brush ($32).
