Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation = My HG Foundation

 OMG.... That is really all I have to say about this foundation. It's THAT good. If you are not into full coverage, than I would not suggest this foundation for you. This foundation is described to have 21% pigment. One pump of the stuff is enough to cover entire face and then some. You can even mix this in with some of your moisturizer to thin it out. When thinned out with moisturizer, it becomes no different than a normal medium coverage foundation. In that case, you can save a lot of money as this product should last you a lifetime if you choose to do the moisturizer mix method. I will definitely be stocking up on this product, I'm afraid it may discontinue and come out with something new ( I hate when companies do that). The color selection is a pretty good. It's not hard trying to find a shade to match your skin with this line. I'm an NC44-45 in MAC and shade 66 and this KVD foundation matched me just fine. I must warn though, that this foundation is really thick, and if it's not applied correctly with the proper tools, you will end up with a hot thick mess on your face, not cute. I wouldn't suggest applying with a skunk/duo fiber brush. Go for a kabuki type style brush, as it will sheer this product out to perfection. I have been wearing this for about 1 month now, no break outs, and no irritation. I have sensitive and oily skin so if it did not bother me, I'm pretty sure you will be fine. The finish dries to a nice satin matte finish, is transfer resistant, and will last all day, if not longer, even without a setting spray.
