Notice something different? We gave Lock-It a sharp new look, but don’t worry, we didn’t touch the formula!

Lock-It Foundation rocks so hard! Creamy and pigmented, it’s the only long-wear liquid formula we can count on to create a perfect canvas on ANY skin type.

One little pump is all it takes to even out discoloration, stop shine and hide blemishes! The coverage is amazing, whether you apply with a brush or a sponge. And it’s so long-wear, we can go a full 24 hours without touching up or re-applying (Kat herself has put this to the test). That velvety matte finish will stay flawless through hell or high water!

Science nerds, pay attention! Formulated with 21% pigment, our powerful potion is loaded with proprietary pigments plus an exclusive blend of siliconic elastomers and esters which bind the formula, so your foundation stays transfer-resistant! Lock-It, you always have us looking and feeling like a total goddess.

The bottle features an innovative airless chamber design that prevents contamination and maintains Lock-It’s rich consistency. That means you get a fresh, precisely measured dose with every pump!

Did ya know?

Prep skin with Lock-It Hydrating Primer for a super-smooth application and comfortable wear.

To customize your coverage:
1) Mix 1 pump of Lock-It Foundation with 1 pump of Lock-It Hydrating Primer for medium coverage and a dewy finish.

In true Kat Von D Beauty fashion, no detail goes overlooked. The packaging design was inspired by Kat’s love of antique letters closed with wax seals. KvD hand-sketched the logo on the front of the box to resemble a droplet of hot wax freshly stamped with the Kat Von D insignia. The black wax drip silhouette is also featured on the bottle for a super-modern take on an old world tradition!

Free of synthetic fragrances.

Lock-It Foundation is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 886.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coverage, poor range I tried out almost every foundation out there but nothing gave me the kind of coverage as KVD. It doesn't look heavy if you apply it correctly. A little goes A LONG way. I suggest applying with a beauty blender because brushes make it look heavy and cakey. However, the shade selection could use more light beiges. There was only one light neutral and it was WHITE (N42). So I ended up having to get the lightest cool (C44). But so far it has been the best foundation I have ever used. I just have to mix a little bit of Fit Me Porcelain to neutralize the color. I added 2 pics one with makeup and one without so you can see the coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail foundation! I cannot live without this foundation! I'm definitely a full-coverage, cake-face kinda girl but this stuff is so amazing that you can apply sparingly & still get really great coverage of blemishes/ruddiness/uneven skin tone. It might seem little pricey initially but it lasts a really long time; I can typically get 4-5 months out of one bottle with daily use. The best part? It feels incredible to spend money on a product that I know is 100% cruelty free & ethically sound. Normally I'd feel ecstatic to pay a little more for that but Kat backs it up with a product that delivers in spades. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad to say I hated it... Let me start by saying that I was SOOOO excited to use this foundation because I know a few people who had only great things to say about it. I have very oily, very fair skin and was told it'd work perfect. I absolutely love it right after I put it on. Give me an hour and I am as greasy as can be. It would transfer easily and no matter what I tried, I could not control how oily it made me. Even more oily than normal. The coverage is amazing! I would use a half of a pump and it'd cover everything. A little definitely goes a long way. I was very happy with the color match that sephora came up with. I am so sad that this didn't work for me, but I hope I'm one of the unlucky few.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. W. O. W. Today is the third time I've worn this foundation. The first two times, I wore them for full days, but didn't really do much. Today, as of right now, I've been wearing this foundation for a little over 13 hours, I have walked through terrible humidity, been rained on, sat through three exasperating classes that demanded lots of face touching, I have spilt juice on my face, and gotten kisses from my dog. This foundation has nearly been through every possible torment today and it HAS NOT MOVED ONE BIT. No separation, no breaking down, no wearing off, NOTHING. If today didn't ruin my foundation, NOTHING WILL RUIN THIS. It is truly godsent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST foundation EVER!!! This is the first brand I've ever found that offers a shade pale enough for me, (I'm talking GHOSTLY pale,) and works well with my difficult combination skin type. It goes on smoothly, builds nicely, doesn't change color after oxidizing, doesn't cake up or settle into any fine lines I may have, lasts all day/night and actually helps battle my persistent acne. I had trouble with it the first time I used it, it wouldn't spread and it took a lot to cover my face, but dampening my beauty blender before application fixed all of that. Now my skin looks flawless and it feels like I'm not even wearing makeup. Thanks to Kat Von D, pale chicks like me can finally have the coverage they want!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOUNDATION FOR GHOST WHITE PEOPLE! I have never found a foundation that even comes remotely close to my skin tone! I have a sun allergy which makes my vampire-esk skin very difficult to match but KVD slays the complexion game! The formula is very pigmented and easy to blend, the only issue I have had with it is that it tends to get a tad bit cakey on me (especially around my nose) since my skin is so dry. To combat this I mix it with a little bit of moisturizer, it is a heavenly combo. This formula is also very long lasting, I've worn it to Disneyland, clubbing, and to countless concerts and it never disappoints by budging or fading. 10/10 would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! KVD Lock-It foundation in light 48 is the best, without exception, foundation I've ever used. I swear it has boosted my confidence. I have never had so many compliments in one day before...from men and women. It's very easy to apply and only requires a small amount. A smooth and flawless coverage that sits so light on my skin I don't feel it at all. 100% cruelty free too! No testing on the furbabies! It's a deal breaker for me. I can't even adequately say just how great Lock-It is. Definitely will buy again and again and again etc. KVD has truly created a product that makes us all artists. Beautiful rich colors and finally a real full coverage makeup. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I WISH I HAD TRIED THIS SOONER!! I couldn't wait to post a review about how wonderful this foundation is. I am a WOC and I got the color 76 deep. I have been hearing about this for a while, but I didn't think that the hype was real, BUT IT IS!! This is hands down my favorite liquid foundation now. I have oily skin and I also sweat alot due to medication that I take. This DID NOT MOVE!! When I looked at my makeup, it looked flawless, smooth, and matte. I have never had a foundation that held up to my sweating and oil. I wish I had purchased this sooner because I could have saved a lot of money. Lol. I am so happy that I tried this and you will be too. This is the BEST liquid foundation I have ever used!! I love, love, love it!!
