Kat Von D's Lock-It Revolution

Monday, September 12, 2016

I've always been captivated by Kat Von D's rad style, but I never really gave her make up a shot until recently and I am in love with it. Her character shines through everything she does, and to have a celebrity who cares about their product line as much as she seems to, is rewarding for consumers--meaning awesome products worth the price. 

Concealer Apart from the cute design, the size of the product was one of the first things I noticed, unlike most products now a days, there was decent amount in the tube. I was instantly captivated by how well pigmented the concealer was, usually it takes a few coats to conceal under my eyes but this did the trick with one swatch, bendable as well as build-able. I want to say that it goes on creamy but turns into a nice powdery feel , I also didn't have any issues with creasing. This is my new favorite concealer for brightening my under eyes.

Brushes I absolutely loved the Powder Brush, the bristles were a lot softer than I had anticipated. Thus far, I have used it to set my concealer/ foundation, apply bronzer and blush--all had a lovely outcome. I've washed the brush once since having it and have not had any shedding worth mentioning, as long as you’re gentle while washing and use the proper soap I don't see bristle loss as an issue. Same goes for the concealer brush, which could double as a small contour brush. Lock-It Setting Powder Brush #20 Lock-It Concealer Brush #40

Powder I had been using mineral powder to set my face for the longest time, and it's just not the same result as you get with an actual finish powder. I wasn't able to find one that didn't leave my face feeling caky, and to be honest I was a little hesitant to try this product, but in the end I LOVED it. It helped keep my concealer from creasing (hello greasy eye area) and it also had a silk like feeling that surprisingly went well with my preferred dewy makeup (opposed to a matte finish). It definitely helps your face appear more smooth and is long lasting. I secretly hope she releases a travel size of this powder, because I'd like to take it everywhere. Seriously, this stuff is like magic!  Lock-It Setting Powder

I am working on a Vampire Makeup look to share with you guys hopefully the first week of October as a part of a series that I will be doing for the month. I wanted to see how well Kat Von D's setting powder would work with Halloween makeup, and by the looks of it I will be using it to set the complete look. If you can't already tell, Lyla and I will be being vampires for Halloween this year (her choice) and yes I am aware there are no fangs, this is not the finished look. 

All of the products listed are available on Kat Von D's beauty site, as well as Sephora. Have you tried Kat Von D's beauty collection? Which Kat Von D products can you not live without?
