Review: Kat Von D Lock It Foundation

Hi beauties,

The Kat Von D Lock It Foundation* has been a cult favourite in the beauty world for some time but yet again I’ve been late on the bandwagon. I was first introduced to the foundation by my colleague at work. Her makeup is always flawless and when I didn’t have any concealer I borrowed some of the foundation and OMG it covered my blemish! Recently at the Sephora Showcase I was introduced to the new shades in the Lock It Foundation. Currently there are 30 shades available in Sephora Australia and 32 shades available on the Kat Von D website. So there should be a shade for most people!

  • Available in 30 to 32 shades, not sure if that includes the new shades

Evening Skincare Routine: March 2017

Ultraceuticals Ultra Balance Gel Cleanser*

In the evening I use it with my Clarionic and it works beautifully, creating quite a bit of foam. When I use just my hands, the cleanser only lightly foams up.
