Kat Von D Lock-It Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I wouldn't usually post about the same brand one after the other, but I placed a Sephora order a few weeks ago and bought a batch of Kat Von D bits at the same time. I've tested and had to get my thoughts on the blog whilst they were fresh, otherwise baby brain may set in and I will forget (just how long can I stretch baby brain out for? does 10 months in still count?) 

Having oily skin means that I get the dreaded mid day shine, or 10am on most days, so I needed something that will stop the oil slick dragging the foundation off of my face. Cue Kat Von D's Lock-It Setting powder, lightweight, non-cakey, translucent, fix your makeup in place powder.

Now I've tried others, but they were either too drying or too heavy resulting in a rather cakey look, think Betty Crocker. I didn't really have high hopes for this powder, but I was buying other items and thought I should at least try.

I paid $30.00 (around £23.00) from Sephora, so not the cheapest, it fits in amongst the higher end powders but not as much as the Laura Mercier/Charlotte Tilbury's of the loose powder world. 
My immediate thoughts were that the packaging is nice with a KVD embossed lid and also that it seems to be a decent size.

Upon opening, the dispensing holes are in the shape of a star, pointless but still pleasing. I played around with a few brushes but I actually preferred to apply with a foundation brush. I just felt like I had more control and no powder dropped down, no mess! I usually give my whole body a light dusting when applying powder - by accident may I add!

I have to say that on first application I noticed straight away that it improved my complexion, it smooths out the bits that you wish you could blur on Photoshop. I wasn't expecting it to improve the finish of my foundation but just to hold it in place, yet it holds up to its complexion improving claims. It does do a pretty good job at holding foundation in place, I don't think I will ever find anything that completely hold makeup all day.

Overall i'm quite impressed with this, it not only doesn't dry and cake but it actually improves the look of my skin. It makes up for the wipes I bought recently (see post below) Kat you've nailed it on this one!

  3. First, you must make sure the key slides easily into the lock. If it does not, it means there's something obstructing its passage. If the key does slide all the way in, the second step is to try to turn the mechanism.Locksmith Colorado Springs

  5. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on distinct blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content off their writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d choose to use some with all the content in my small weblog whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide a link on your own internet weblog. Many thanks sharing. London Locksmith
