Sorry for the radio silence lovelies, we are finally getting settled here at the new site. Hello to all our new readers! And welcome back to those who’ve stuck around. 🙂
So a couple weeks ago I went and got matched for foundation at Sephora. After reading my blog post about my LOVE for drugstore foundations, this was a big step for me. After speaking to the lovely lady Taylor, (I’ve been back since then and she recognizes me *warm fuzzies*) I found that Kat von D’s Lock-It Foundation in the shade Light 42 Neutral. NOT that lightest shade they have, only the second. I was fully surprised hahaha. I’m such a pasty human.
Foundation: Overall, I’d say the foundation is an AMAZING skin tone match for me, but the texture is so thick that it cakes around my nose. Especially since I wear glasses, I’ve been trying to find ways to make it … spread thinner, if that makes sense. Also, since it’s so light, I’m going to try mixing it with some other foundations I have. I will update about that on our Instagram page. For right now, I’ll give this a 6.5/10. Once it sets I don’t FEEL like I’m covered in cakey makeup, it can just look that way. Also, it doesn’t settle around the nose area very well.
Concealer: For the concealer, I went for the shade White-Out, which I now partly regret. It is even thicker than the foundation, but lasts ALL DAY. Sadly, I can’t wear too much of it as it’s WHITE as ALL GET OUT, literally in the name I know. I like it but I don’t love it. It gets a 7/10 for me. It can be difficult to gauge how much to apply and it creases heavily if not powdered right away. I’ll keep using it until I can get me some Tarte Shape Tape. 🙂
Translucent Setting Powder: I only grabbed the powder when I was in the Sephora check out line when I purchased the foundation. I haven’t used it enough to say whether I love it or not, but it doesn’t have a smell, goes on smoothly, and the packaging is cute. I tend to go for my Coty powder most often, as it’s a bigger container to grab and I want to cherish this Kat von D powder, save it for special occasions. For now, I’d say a solid 8/10.
