Today I’ve got a big Kat Von D Lock-It 41 foundation wear test and review to share with you, along with several mini reviews. I tested this foundation out for several days with a new application method and recorded 3 of those days. All of the Kat Von D Beauty products, including the brushes, are vegan.

Thank you so much @KatVonDBeauty for sending me this to test out! I can’t wait to play with the brushes too.

The foundation in 41 Light Neutral swatched and blended out on the back of my hand.

@KatVonDBeauty gets pale skin. I’ve swatched KVD foundations and concealers next to each other, Cover FX and NARS Chantilly for reference. It’s surprising how ‘dark’ Chantilly is in comparison, and I would never consider it dark. I think D35 is a color that some people would use to contour, but as you can probably tell, it turns orangey on me, so wouldn’t be natural or flattering looking. I also swatched my sample of KVD Light 42 from Sephora next to the KVD Light 42 that I was sent. Photo on left is studio lighting. On the right is outside in late day sun light. . Row 1 – KVD 41 Light Neutral (liquid foundation) – Cover FX N0 (liquid foundation) Row 2 KVD 42 Light Neutral (liquid foundation) – NARS Chantilly (radiant creamy concealer) Row 3 KVD 42 Light (sample from sephora) – KVD L1 Neutral (concealer) Row 4 KVD 45 Light Neutral (liquid foundation) – KVD L3 Warm (concealer) KVD D35 Neutral (concealer) – KVD White Out (concealer) #vegan #crueltyfree #katvondbeauty #crueltyfreebeauty #lockitrevolution #Phyrra #PhyrrasFault #MyUnicornLife #altbeauty #altfashion #instagood #photosinbetween #howyougglow #redditmua #bbloggers #theblogissue #prsample

Jouer Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick in Praline Mini Review
The Jouer Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick in Praline is the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick formula that I own. I’ve been trying out all of my matte liquid lipstick formulas to find the best for me, and so far this is it. This stuff wore all day, through several drinks and meals. It didn’t come off on my glasses that I drank out of. It didn’t come off when I kissed my husband. It didn’t come off on the back of my hand. I think it’s a great formula. I do feel like the color makes my teeth look a bit yellow, which is surprising and not flattering. It’s a pinky bronzey coppery color.
Jouer Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cassis Mini Review
Jouer’s Cassis is a gorgeous cool-toned matte violet. This one is again, very comfortable, but doesn’t wear quite as long as Praline. Still, at the end of the day, my lips didn’t feel like the entire top layer of skin was going to peel off. It did wear away a tiny bit at the corners and inner rim of my mouth. It didn’t kiss off on my hand. I think this color is super flattering on my skintone.
Lock-It Setting Powder Mini Review
The KVD Lock-IT Setting Powder didn’t help to prolong the life of the foundation on my t-zone. I tried it on top of my foundation as well as underneath it. The texture is silky soft and finely milled. Surprisingly, I can’t find an ingredients listing online for the powder. I do know that it is vegan (yay). KVD recommends applying a generous amount on top of your concealer under the eyes, wait a few minutes, then gently dust it off for a soft-matte under eye. So far, this setting powder hasn’t really worked for me, but I’m open to suggestions on how to use it.
Lock-It Concealer Crème Review
Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème in L1 Neutral is an awesome brightening concealer for my skintone. It works wonderfully to brighten under my eyes. It does not emphasize the fine lines around my eyes. It did settle slightly into the line / crease of my lower lid, but was easily buffed out with my finger tip. I love this formula because it is so incredibly pigmented without being drying. I don’t feel it is prone to creasing. Additionally, it comes in a staggering amount of 21 shades (including White Out), so it has a great shade range from light to dark. It’s also a great value for the price at $26 for .22 oz. Compare that to my long-time favorite Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer which is $28 for .16 and only available in 11 shades.
Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush Mini Review
The Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush is an amazing little tool. It’s extremely dense with very little give, so it spreads out thick products like a dream. It makes it VERY easy to apply foundation or concealer precisely around eyebrows and the eyes. KVD recommends this for use with concealer, cream contouring, and even as a guide for winged eyeliner. It does have a long handle design, making it similar in shape to the new Urban Decay Pro brushes. It’s like a mini version of the foundation brush and I have nothing remotely similar in shape or density in my collection.
Lock-It Foundation Review
Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in 41 Light Neutral is a perfect match for my skintone and I’m in love with the color. Previously I thought this was a foundation that was best suited for oily skin. I’ve since reversed my opinion based on the application method. If I apply this foundation with fingers, with a beauty blender, or any of my other foundation brushes, it just does not look good. If I apply this foundation with the Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Foundation brush, it looks amazing. It spreads it around the face perfectly. It doesn’t cling to any dry patches. It covers up all of my imperfections. It comes in 20 shades currently and they’re expanding the line by several more shades, including 41 Light Neutral and 43 Light Warm Yellow, which will launch later this year. KVD really gets pale skin and she’s also got a great shade range for deeper skintones. It’s $35 for 1 oz, making it less expensive than Urban Decay All Nighter, Naked Skin or Cover FX Liquid foundation, all of which are $40. I consider it to be a very good value for the price.
Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush Mini Review
The KVD Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush is unique in my vast array of brushes. It’s got a triangular tip, reminiscent of an artist’s brush. The bristles are very densely packed together so that the brush does not have much give or flex. It apparently is the perfect amount of give to allow it to easily spread out thick, pigmented foundations like the Lock-It foundation. This brush is the entire reason that I changed my opinion on how this foundation looks and wears on me. With this brush it was easy to apply the foundation and get it to blend around my face.
