I’m not usually a powder foundation kind of girl.
Its not that I don’t think powder does a good job, I really do, I just have a set routine when I do my makeup and I use a few different cream products.
Anyways, regardless, when I saw that Kat Von D Beauty released a foundation powder, the Lock-It Powder Foundation, I was super excited to try it out since I love her foundations and concealers.
The Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation (C$44) is available in 26 shades from light to dark and gives you full-coverage, instant blurring, and extreme long wear.
I received a couple shades of this (125 Light – Light Ivory, and 135 Light – Light Sesame) and found that they were a nice match for my skin tone. The coverage is definitely full and the compact includes a sponge as well to apply the powder with. A little goes a long way and I found that it did a good job of covering up any imperfections in my skin tone.
This powder leaves you with a matte finish and is suitable for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin types. It’s also formulated with rice powder extract to blur away any imperfections, as well as Kaolin, a clay mineral that helps to give a diffused, matte finish to your face. The powder is lightweight on your skin and it also doesn’t settle like others do. I also found it gave my face a soft-focus effect, making my skin look flawless.
Although I’m not a huge powder foundation girl, I do really like this and can definitely see myself reaching for it often. I’ve also used it to set my liquid foundation, as well as help tame any shine that comes through on my face.
I also want to note that the formula is vegan and cruelty-free, as is the case with all her products, so it adds a little something extra just knowing that no animals were involved in making this.
Are you a powder foundation fan?
Please note, I received this product from PR. All opinions are my own.
