Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer is the newest addition to Kat Von D’s face products and retails for $32. This is a water base primer and claims to hydrate skin , smooth skin, protect skin, and reduces the size of pores. It is infused with vitamin B5, aloe vera, jojoba, and shea.
I have big pores and oily skin. It sucks. This primer worked OKAY on my skin. It actually does everything it claims to do. This has a thin consistency and doesn’t even feel like a primer. Its very soft and goes on very easily. I use Kat Von Lock-It Tattoo Foundation on top of the primer. This primer really does help reduce the size of pores! I was surprised since the consistency felt so thin, I really didn’t think it would fill my pores in. It did! It also did smooth my skin for the foundation and make foundation did stay on pretty good. I also noticed that the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation didn’t look cakey throughout the day with use of the Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer. I noticed that sometimes nearing the end of a full day, the foundation can start to look cakey but when I used it with the primer, it didn’t have any cakey-ness! The one thing this did not do and did not claim to do was keep me matte. I could feel the oil on my skin seeping through, BUT like I said this product does not claim to mattify.
In my opinion, this primer would be best for normal to dry skinned people. It does a great job with reducing pore size and keep your face moisturized! I would have to say to skip this product to my oily face friends!
