Gather round dry skin girls you need the new Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer ($32) which is a water based facial primer that was introduced for Spring 2015 to the permanent Kat Von D Sephora Makeup Collection.
Take a look!
One thing I’ve learned in my beauty life is that if my skin is dry my makeup looks like hell and goes to hell! I need to make sure I’m super hydrated, I’m talking so moist that I glide when I walk. A hydrating facial primer is one of the key steps to ensure my makeup not only applies easily but also looks fresh without clinging to my drier areas.
That’s why products like Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer are pretty incredible.
If you’re looking for something to reduce the appearance of pores or something to mattify your skin, well, this isn’t a good pick for you. However, if your dry, thirsty skin needs more moisture, this is in fact a product for you!
Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer Swatches
Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer comes housed in the same round container as the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation. It also has a new little plug which can be placed over the spout to prevent the primer from hardening up inside the container. I haven’t purchased Lock It Foundation in a while and they may already include this little cover with it! I sure hope so because the foundation is prone to blocking the spout as it hardens up.
Apparently it’s formulated with polymers that provide a protective barrier on the skin to prevent foundation settling into fine lines and pores but I honestly feel like that’s impossible due to the texture of the product. This formula is water based with a very light, runny texture that absorbs easily into skin but doesn’t really have the ability to blur or even fill larger pores. Lucky enough, I don’t really have visible pores so I’m perfectly fine with what this does do and that would be provide plenty of moisture.
The formula contains a host of great ingredients like B5, aloe vera, jojoba, and even shea. It’s the type of product that provides moisture and just keeps on giving because my skin feels pleasantly moist throughout the day without being shiny, greasy, or dewy. When my skin is moist, my foundation is happy. This ensures my blush, my foundation, and anything else I might be wearing on my face isn’t sticking or clinging to drier areas. It gives my skin a smooth, well hydrated surface for my makeup to cling to.
The texture is fabulous as it’s the type of product that absorbs super easily and feels virtually weightless on skin. For me, it quite reminds me of a translucent slightly thicker version of Make Up For Ever HD Elixir. I didn’t really notice a fragrance with this, perhaps something very light and subtle in the background?! But I think I’m imagining that!
If you wear and love Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation you realize how thick and creamy it is. This is actually a great product for sheering that Lock-It Foundation out. A pump of this and a pump of the foundation gives you a nice, hydrating texture. I wouldn’t say it extended my foundation wear but it did provide long lasting moisture that made my foundation and blush look better through the wear. If I didn’t know better I would think it contained hyaluronic acid as it has some great lasting moisture effect.
Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer is an excellent facial primer for those with drier skin! This one is nice for providing long lasting moisture, providing a smooth, hydrated surface for makeup, and allows makeup to wear fresher for longer.
