We Put Kat Von D ‘Lock-It’ Makeup to a 24-Hour Test

Long-lasting, full-coverage and waterproof: the three qualities every beauty diva looks for on their Sephora shopping spree. In search of a flawless look that’ll last all day, we got our hands on the ‘Lock-It‘ range by Kat Von D Beauty that everybody is talking about. We decided to put the Kat Von D makeup must-haves through a 24-hour challenge as seen in the video above. Here’s a rundown of the makeup products we picked up from Sephora UAE to lockdown the look:

Lock-It Hydrating Primer

The key to perfecting a long-lasting look is the Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer. It preps your skin to withstand even the extremist Dubai summer weather.

What we loved:

  • Its hydrating formula kept our skin looking and feeling fresh all day long.
  • The primer felt weightless on our skin and made a perfectly smooth base for the foundation.
  • It contains key ingredients including vitamin B5 (deeply hydrates), aloe vera (reduces skin inflammation), jojoba (moisturises), and Shea (nourishes).

Lock-It Foundation

Offering 24-hour wear and full-coverage with a matte finish is the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation. It ticks all the right boxes when it comes to makeup you can rely on.

What we loved:

  • Unlike other foundations we’ve tested, this one didn’t leave that uncomfortable greasy feeling.
  • With 21% pigment for full-coverage, applying one thin layer was more than enough which meant it didn’t feel heavy on our skin.
  • Despite sleeping with the makeup on, we woke up with a shine-free, matte look.

Lock-It Setting Powder

Designed to set and perfect the look is the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder. It uses Micro-Blurring Technology (this blurs out HD skin imperfections – similar to an Instagram filter) to give a flawless, locked-in finish.

What we loved:

  • The velvety, matte finish; it was lightweight on the skin and easy to apply thanks to the KVD Lock-It Setting Powder Brush.
  • The powder was subtle yet effective; it didn’t leave a chalky, white finish on our face.
  • It prevented oiliness throughout the day, even after being out in the 40-degree heat.

Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist

The final key to creating a flawless look that lasts for up to 24 hours is the Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist. It’s a beauty saviour every woman needs in her makeup bag.

What we loved:

  • A quick spritz of this micro-mist stopped our makeup from smudging, cracking and melting.
  • It felt weightless on our skin and didn’t leave a sticky feel.
  • It made us feel fresh the whole day and also made our makeup look more vibrant.

You can pick up all of these Kat Von D makeup products at your nearest Sephora store.
