New Kat Von D "Lock It" Foundation , Concealers & Brushes
Okay guys, so in my last post I spoke a little about my irrational fear of foundation brushes. I've been #teambeautyblender since my infant days of makeup but the other day I got a beautiful trunk from Kat Von D and her team full of the latest "Lock It" products which included the new foundation, concealer and brushes to go with it. I was about to embark on a journey into uncharted territory. My irrational fear of foundation brushes stemmed from the fact that I didn't use foundation in the first place. I would apply Kat Von D's concealer in Deep 36 on my entire face and get that flawless finish that I strived for. Now that I had a chest full of foundation, I had to try it! I mean, when Kat Von D sends you makeup, you use it! LOL
Thoughts on "Lock It" Foundation
For someone who isn't crazy about foundations I am sure in love with this one! I was totally afraid because I wasn't sure if the color would match my skin (I use the color Deep 71 Warm) but as soon as you stipple it into the skin and let it sit for about a minute or so it somehow blends into the skin seamlessly. It is a full coverage foundation with a matte finish which stays on for 24 hours (Uhm, yes to having your face still on after a long night at the club). This is definitely a new staple in my everyday makeup routine!
Thoughts on "Lock It" Concealer
Okay, so my go to concealer to highlight was the Nars Radiance Creamy Concealer but after trying out the new "Lock It" concealers by Kat Von D, I may have a new go to! I was totally devastated that they were changing the formula but once I applied the concealer (D31 Warm) on the area under my eye, I thought, "Whoa,major upgrade!". I definitely swore by the original concealer but this new formula is less liquidy then the first and the new angled applicator makes it so much easier to accurately apply to the areas you need to correct or highlight! Obsessed!
Thoughts on "Lock It" Foundation & Concealer Brushes
I finally got over my fear of foundation and concealer brushes, thanks to the new "Lock It" brushes (If anything could help me get over this fear it would be Kat Von D LOL). The foundation and foundation brush were MADE for each other! Now to be clear, I use the brushes to apply their respective pairs and then I blend it thoroughly with a beauty blender. The BEST way to apply the foundation is by stippling it into the skin with the foundation brush and then blending it out with a beauty blender. The foundation brush is perfect for building the amount of coverage you desire (It is a full coverage foundation but I'm a "Super Full" coverage kind of guy), and I can trust that I won't look cakey because this formula is just that amazing. So I say YAS to the new "Lock It" foundation and concealer brushes!
