I don’t remember the last time I wore an actual foundation. I’ve been quite happy with my BB creams and foundation serums for many years, but I was happy to give this vegan, cruelty-free and toxin-free concealer and foundation duo a try when I was offered to review it by Influenster.
The Lock-It foundation I got is in Light 45 shade (light beige with warm undertone). Not a perfect match for me, a bit too yellow and a tad too light for my current skin tone. But damn is this foundation highly pigmented! You really just need very little product for a full coverage. I am not used to such heavy coverage, so I naturally wanted to wash my face off right away after applying the foundation on my face. I can see how some would love it though, if you’re into full coverage that is. I may have to play around with a smaller amount of product to see if I can get a sheer coverage instead. The matte effect is my favorite part about this product. It lasts through the day, eliminating shine in unwanted areas.
The Lock-It Concealer in Light 7 (Light with warm undertone) is a better fit for my skin. It is best applied with your fingers, as the product seems to stay in place when using a sponge. I like how this concealer is brightening without being over the top. It blended into my skin very well, all while keeping that matte effect. I must admit that I will incorporate this concealer into my green beauty routine. I am so glad that more cosmetic brands are becoming cruelty and toxin -free, keeping harmful ingredients away from our skin and harm away from defenseless animals. Keep it up, Kat Von D!
