Is coffee available in IV form yet? Asking for a friend. I’m always striving for the perfect makeup base and am currently experimenting with different foundations and concealers for Spring. One base product I have a love hate relationship is setting powder. When my skin is going through a dehydrated phase I need it’s help more than ever. But find the wrong one can make my skin look worse. I’ve always got on well with my Prep + Prime translucent powder from MAC Cosmetics, but had heard good things about the Kat Von D ‘Lock-It’ Setting Powder and decided to jump ship.

I love the Kat Von D products I’ve tried so far. Her packaging is always awesome and the ‘Lock-It’ Setting Powder is no exception. The console contains a small sponge that has her logo on. I like it when a sponge is included as whilst I use a brush to apply it, it’s easier to get out without spilling product everywhere. The powder comes out through star shaped holes in classic Kat Von D style.
I love how finely milled this powder is. It feels completely weightless on the skin and helps foundation and base products stay in place. ‘Lock-It’ has a velvet texture and whilst it’s completely matte, it doesn’t make skin look dry or dull at all.
The Kat Von D ‘Lock-It’ Setting Powder is available in the UK in Debenhams and is £22 for 19g. A smaller pot is available for £10 that I purchased as a trial, but I’ll definitely be going back for the 19g next time. For comparison, MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime translucent powder is £21.50 for just 8g. Consider me converted.
Do you have any tips for creating a flawless base?
