I like it when I get back into the groove of things, because now there's no stopping me from posting more often! I ordered a bunch of new things from Sephora after recently purchasing this new concealer and a foundation. Today, I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer Creme.
The new lock it concealer creme is suppose to be a concealer, and so much more. Besides concealing, it also brightens the under eye, corrects skin discolouration, contours and even bakes. Compared to the other Lock It concealer, this one has a slight gel like consistency, and isn't runny or sticky. One thing I love about Kat Von D Beauty is her detail with packaging. Some companies hit it out of the park with packaging, while many often miss the concept. Kat Von D has highly original, sleek, and unique packaging that is to die for.
It claims to be full coverage, while nourishing skin and being crease proof.
I really love the doe foot applicator for this concealer. It's flat and flexible, and works well with the shape of your under eye.
It's also angled and not at all stiff, so it curves along the contours of your face.
One thing I disliked about the product was finding the correct shade. I could not, for the life of me, figure out my shade. There is about 21 shades, so I stood in front of the display for at least 30 minutes swatching between multiple medium and neutral shades, trying to figure out what would suit me best. There was at least 5 of them that looked like it could work, so I had to ask a Sephora associate for help, which I personally don't like doing because I like doing things on my own haha. What's awesome about the huge shade line is that there's also a white out shade. Literally a white concealer, that works great for brightening up your face, or even mixing in with a different concealer to lighten the colour!
Let's talk about the pros first. The concealer has amazing coverage. Absolutely amazing. My blemishes are gone, my dark spots, my dark circles. The colour works well at brightening my under eye without making it too light. It doesn't crease at all either! So what was wrong with it? My face was pretty damn oily at the end of the day. I originally thought it was my foundation that was causing the shine, but it was the concealer. The spots where I put the concealer most on, ended up being quite shiny. Regardless of that problem though, after blotting my face, the concealer stayed put and looked good as new. Most concealers I use would rub off by the end of the night, or the redness of my face would peek through. This concealer literally does not budge, even though my face is seeping in oil underneath. I definitely love the coverage and the durability, but maybe I'll work on baking the areas of my face where I put the most concealer, to set the concealer for the day.
If you have dry/normal skin, this concealer will do wonders for you. As for me and my oily skinned friends, as long as we cake on the setting powder, this stuff will stay put all day. I'm glad I found a concealer that will not fade after a few hours, or rub off after touching my nose constantly. Hopefully for the winter months, the hydrating part of this concealer will do its job in the colder weather!
